This is a one off event utilising the Vivid warehouse space as a venue for one night only. Cold Cave is the brainchild of Philadelphia’s Wesley Eisold, ex-Some Girls, Give Up The Ghost, and currently Ye Olde Maids etc with fellow band mate Caralee from Xiu Xiu. Cold Cave are a darkwave synth confection with more than enough static and noise cycling through to justify mentions of Prurient and Burning Star Core on their personal MySpace. The songs are danceable, dark, instantly infectious. Think ’80s industrial and synth pop over-driven through power electronics. The band are touring alongside one man noise assault Prurient playing a long continuous set. Painted Nails, a three-song 7″ released by Dominick Fernow’s Hospital Productions is out now.
Nicholas Bullen is a musician, sound artist and writer from Birmingham, England.
From early projects (including the abrasive ‘Grindcore’ of Napalm Death – of which Bullen is a founder member – and the dark, dub-inflected beats of Scorn) to an ongoing range of solo and collaborative projects. In recent years, his work has expanded into the broader field of the arts including sound installations, texts and lectures, along with continued performances at art galleries, music festivals and cinemas.
Dream Dreams The Dreamer Orkestra
Solo project of Matt Snowden, recently evolved to be a handpicked orkestra performing music way beyond the usual noise and drone tags. Multiple guitars, drumkits, basses, vocals, violin, trombone and other instruments create an overwhelming experience of sound. Power, restraint, intensely physical rhythms, unknown lyrics screamed and sung over silence and extreme volume.
Music for open minds and deep listening.
Iron Fist Of The Sun
Hailing originally from Druids Heath in Birmingham. Iron Fist of the Sun is the current sonic project of extreme noise protagonist Lee Howard. Live power electronics, experimental sonic terrorism and Black Metal are all encompassed in an unforgiving soundtrack to your most brutal nightmares… just don’t dare call it “Art Noise”
