Cucina Povera “Fenno-karelian producer with feet firmly in Glasgow, mind aloft in the imaginary and heart ambling around Europe. Produced, curated, composed and performed as part of Luxos (optimo, huntleys and palmers), Between the Acts (subcity radio, GI, radiophrenia) and Gong bath (green door studios). I make songs about nourishment, precarity and serendipitous ephemera.”

FK Alexander “FK Alexander is a Glasgow based Performance Artist whose work is concerned with issues of wounds, recovery, aggressive healing, radical wellness, industrialisation and noise music. FK’s work predominantly puts her body at the centre of ritualised, action based, often durational work, in often ridiculous attempts to communicate ideas around new language, new violence and new love.”

ilk gig in Glasgow October 2016The Brackish (Bristol)
“The Brackish are a thrillingly unique instrumental band formed in 2013, featuring alumni of This is the Kit, Zun Zun Egui and The Liftmen. At the core of the music are tight arrangements combined with improvisation, featuring interplay between two distinctive guitar voices. The broad vocabulary of the music – psychedelic, metal, jazz, kraut … – echoes Steve Reich, Sabbath, Can and Tortoise.”

Fritz Welch
A legend.
