Come join in, drop art, find art, create, contact, switch the other….
HONEY RIDE AGAIN… Chatham’s finest, HONEY RIDE ME A GOAT are back in London this Saturday at the Vortex on a rather good looking bill that also features TUBAX and PSYLUS. W’re on a mission with HTMAG now. We’ve said many many things about the glorious musical adventures of Honey Ride Me A Goat already, Here’s what co-promoters MATCH AND FUSE and SINEMA CITY have to say, along with a little bit about the promoters…
“In 2012, Match&Fuse exploded onto the London music scene, packing the Vortex to capacity to witness innovative and cutting-edge ensembles from 8 European countries for a free, 2 day music festival!” Here’s a video taster of what went down….
“A sold-out show in November for the London Jazz Festival cemented Match&Fuse’s unique identity and widespread appeal. Born out of London quintet WorldService Project’s touring of Europe, linking up with like minded ensembles, Match&Fuse has expanded into a European network running touring exchange programmes and the annual festival migrating each year… Oslo 2013, Rome 2014…
Sinema City is a rhythm-centric curation project with a focus on bringing progressive music to warehouse parties.
Super Best Friends Club “So Am I Me Too” Single Launch Party – “An epic single launch party curated by Sinema City at the Total Refreshment Centre, Stoke Newington, London”
For a one-off show in January, M&F and Sinema City come together to present 3 explosive ensembles PLUS DJS until 2am. It happens at the VORTEX, London, N16 this Saturday January 25th – here’s the Facebook event page. Here’s what the promoters have to say about the three bands,,,
TUBAX (Italy) – As eerie and jarring as a cyclone or volcanic eruption, Tubax represent all the paranoia, fortitude, and sci-fi fanaticism of a 70’s film; it is the soundtrack to an alien invasion, a sole identity evolved from electronic, progressive and funk. Tubax detonated the Italian scene with their debut album, Il Mondo Stava Finendo, produced by the indie record label, Megasound, based in Rome.
HONEY RIDE ME A GOAT – This ultra tight, gnarly progressive-avant-punk is the sound of three childhood friends from Kent. Amongst releases on Lexicon Devil and Unlabel they also recorded a session with late Soft Machine legend Hugh Hopper, coming out in extended EP format Spring 2013. “… a maelstrom of sound without ever completely abandoning melody and rhythm. Their music ends up balanced, unpretentious…potent and life-affirming” – Brainwashed
PSYLUS (UK) Fresh from their packed out 2012 London Jazz Festival performance at the QEH Foyer, Psylus is the melding of five progressive minds that together create realms of sound transcendent of genre. A dynamic exploration of styles, Psylus’ foundations are in each member’s respective roots in Jazz, Hip Hop and Electronic Music, which serve as a platform for abstraction and musical evolution
