This Saturday at the always wonderful St Aloysius Social club, we at Hand Of Glory are delighted to present:
Just back from a West Coast tour, and tipped by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore in Arthur magazine as: “A pleasure of great dimensions. The lazy man’s way to review it to call it a bridge between Syd B and Chris Knox, carrying all the weird damage and superb left field pop motion that implies.”
Another Cambridge adventurer, and seemingly prolific youtuber, Pete Um’s solo performance lies somewhat uncomfortably between psychedelic pop music, sonic experimentalism, and Dadaist comedy.
The Lone Taxidermist
The Lone Taxidermist aka Natalie Sharp is a one woman howl-inducing music making machine. From Manchester but now based in London – TOW guesses that gothic psych electro may be the correct way to describe her, but in all honesty The Lone Taxidermist sits quite squarely in a league of her own.
The Outdoor Types and Mary Epworth (special one off supergroup set!)
Longterm friends and Hand Of Glory labelmates , Kidderminster folk-facemelters The Outdoor Types are joined for one night by acclaimed psych soul siren Mary Epworth to try to make the biggest noise possible, with the most number of harmonies.
The Outdoor Types “All aboard that’s coming aboard” is out now on I Blame the parents.
Mary’s harpsichord and flanged autoharp drenched debut album is under construction as we speak.
if that was not enough, the Hand Of Glory DJs, this time joined by music nerd and cat loving Author tom Cox (Lost Tribes Of Pop, Under The Paw) dig up lost greats and danceable pop from the 60s 70s, and probably not 80s.*
As fans of Fortean Times, We’re running this as an unofficial (it’s a long story) appendix to the fantastic 2 day Unconvention, which is once again being held at Westminster uni.
Uncon attendees and other Forteans can get in for £4, everyone else has to stump up the enormous £5 for a whole night of amazing music and cheap beer!
*apart from Funky Town.
