Paddy Steer at Xmas Cocktail


Manchester eccentric Paddy Steer¬†will soothe the ears at Xmas Cocktail (Hare & Hounds, 13 December)¬†with an aural landscape described, intriguingly, as a ‘Swiss Cuckoo clock made of egg boxes and horse hair, glued together by an African Moog player in a Vietnamese iron monger’s shop.’ With a set up reminiscent of a circus sideshow automaton, Steer applies his deft hand to xylophone, percussion, synth, Hawaiian guitar and a vocoder to produce his playful, cartoony textures.

Paddy last played in association with Capsule at the Grand Cross Fayre, Stoke-on-Trent.
