London gig guide
17-Nov-06 - The Front Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall - evening

17-Nov-06 - The Front Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall - late
Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog
Seriously loud, genre-defying free jazz, heavy punk, post-electronica spanning the extremes of musical expression from the South Bank’s London jazz Festival artist in residence. "Marc Ribot's new power trio, filled out by the remarkable versatile rhythm team of bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Ches Smith, is his rawest band in ages." Time Out.
18-Nov-06 - The Front Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall - late
Marc Ribot + guests
The culmination of workshops held throughout the London Jazz Festival, bringing Marc Ribot together with members of the London Sinfonietta, his Ceramic Dog trio and a group of young musicians.

BBQ IN COURTYARD FROM 5PM
VEK (Mike Adcock, Håkon Høgemo, Karl Seglem & Nils Okland) + Clive Bell & Dave Ross
Vek is a Norwegian dialect word meaning a short musical phrase. Vek now also refers to a remarkable four-piece group comprising three Norwegians and one Englishman: all have a background in combining the influence of traditional music with more contemporary approaches to improvisation and composition. Håkon Høgemo and Nils Økland are unquestionably two of Norway’s finest exponents of the Hardanger fiddle and between them have probably done more than anybody to push the frontiers of what is musically possible with the instrument. Not content to keep within the confines of the tradition, Nils Økland is widely acclaimed as a renewer of traditional folk music, adept at building bridges between classical and contemporary music. He is a consummate fiddle composer and accomplished improviser with many recordings and international appearances to his credit. Karl Seglem is one of Norway’s foremost saxophonists as well as being one of the country’s only serious exponents of the traditional instrument known as bukkehorn or goat-horn, releasing several albums under his own name and with others. The music of Vek includes traditional material, original compositions and improvisation. At times it is hauntingly spatial, finely honed and minimalistic, whilst in other pieces the players produce a densely layered web of sound, with melodies, counter-melodies and rhythmic phrases all interweaving, creating music with its own powerful beauty.

Wired Women of Whitechapel
late night fridays - adventures in music
A girl-centric surge of electricity - The Guardian
Organised by Wired Women of Whitechapel.
Click here for the full line up
£5/4 concessions, Whitechapel Members and 2+ tickets in advance
Advanced bookings strongly recommended
It's been over a year since the meteoric Wired Women of Spitalfields Festival (itself the climax of the Spitz’s monthly Wired Women night) hit Old Spitalfields Market in spectacular style, consuming it in a cloud of bagpuss installations, live music, radical cheerleading and tombolas. Now the well loved night returns, this time at a new home at the Whitechapel.
Curated by Anat Ben David (Chicks on Speed) and Piney Gir, Wired Women was conceived to create a platform for women to do the unusual, to create a home for the bits that don't fit into the cookie cutter. It was also created to redress the balance made by the film Modulations‚ which purported to be a definitive history of electronic music but omitted the efforts of women.
2006 sees Wired Women evolve to include pioneering women not only working within electronics, but also in other art forms. There’ ll still be the obligatory girls wielding Moogs and Theremins but WW will also promote the work of artists creating exciting things within motion graphics, music video, experimental animation, live art and other forms of music.
Full line up
Piney and the Bluegrass Two
For her new album Hold Yer Horses Piney’s hung up her keytar in exchange for an accordion and put together a collection of rootin, tootin‚ country tunes. Yup, this is real country music, filled with heartbreaking tales of cheating boys, dusty road trips, and of course, D.I.V.O.R.C.E. ‘It’s old fashioned country music with a big city edge’ says Piney. ‘The songs are heartfelt and sincere and you can hear a sense of fun in them. And the ones that aren’t slow would fill the dance floor at your local honky tonk!
KTB (Katy Bennett) has been writing songs about elephants, vegetarianism and unrequited love since the age of 12. A previous finalist of the BBC Young Folk Awards, she released her debut All Calm In Dreamland‚ in 2002. Her second critically acclaimed album Bluebird‚ produced by her brother Joe from the band Goldrush is a beautiful, heart wrenching eleven and a half songs dealing with universal emotions of love, loss, despair, friendship and hope. It has been described as ‘Sophisticated mix of folk, jazz, pop and rustica with intelligent lyrics’ by The Independent and ‘Strikingly original’ by Uncut. Katy sings and plays guitar and piano in a country/jazz/folk/oddball pop style, her sparse arrangements are subtly augmented by guitars, bongos, cello, violin and the occasional bass and drum kit. http://www.ktb.org.uk
The Whitechapel space houses an interactive Synth Workshop kindly organised and facilitated by Sound Control.
Anat Ben David
Expect more splashes of kaleidoscopic multimedia electronics from the electric paintbox of Chicks On Speed member and WW founder Anat Ben David. Her performance will be a combination of music and video art with some songs taken from the forthcoming album plus new video material. Watch out for some onstage collaborations with Candace Close and DJ Jet.
One-woman-band Ninki V makes space age noises with theremin, keytar, Casio keyboards and toy instruments. She cites her influences to be supermarket shopping, bus journeys, charity shops, ebay, Casio presets, crazy effects pedals, aeroplanes, fairy lights and lava lamps. Sometimes she duets with a theremin playing skeleton marionette or shoots cap guns at the crowd. http://www.ninki-v.com
Plus DJ sets by the LRB and Token Girl
The Pixelettes are a loose collective of female music video directors and animators showing together here for the first.

Barden's Boudoir, 38-44 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7XJ
8pm / £5
Having slayed The Luminaire - and no doubt the length and breadth of England - Mobile, Alabama's renegade sons XBXRX return for a second London date before a trip across the Irish Sea. Their kamikaze live shows mate balloon drop dance frenzy, post-hardcore guitar onslaught, articulate experimentation and intense, cathartic vocals to create a relentlessly modern, political rock music that is as chilling as it is invigorating - check out their awesome records for GSL, 5RC, Narnack, Deleted Art and Polyvinyl if more evidence is needed. The current line-up is led by Chris and Steve Touchton (aka Vice Cooler and Snowsuit*) along with the legendary Weasel Walter and Ed Rodriguez (both of Flying Luttenbachers fame) on drums and bass respectively
ARRINGTON DE DIONYSO
Wednesday 18 October
Barden's Boudoir, 38-44 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7XJ
8pm / £5 / www.wegottickets.com
Alongside Afrirampo, Oshiri Penpenz have pretty much exploded the Osakan underground scene with riot / performance blurring shows that combine self-immolating violence, buckets of puke on the floor of Tower Records and the kind of re-wired garage blues not heard since the house rehearsals for Trout Mask Replica snuffed a deep huff of Detroit amphetamine skronk. The Penpenz engage in a wild, high-energy guitar, drum and vocal jam of raggedy riffs, ingeniously sloppy No Wave percussion and the most insanely drooling vocal howls this side of Harry Pussy. This is seriously not to be missed!
www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZvUrkoXU0Q | www.volcanictongue.com
ARRINGTON DE DIONYSO
Arrington De Dionyso is probably best known for his work fronting Olympia's infectious swamp-stomp trio Old Time Relijun. But Arrington is also a distinctive solo musician in his own right, performing with bass clarinet, jew's harp and his own voice, with its unique multiphonic tone, inspired by Tuvan throatsinging and the ecclesiastics of Albert Ayler. Pushing the envelopse between musicality and pure energy, between shamanic ecstacy and lunacy, he enwraps rooms with resonant sound. Arrington's debut solo LP 'Breath of Fire' is available now on K Records, and comes highly recommended.
A trio hailing from Glasgow's irrepresible art school scene, Park Attack consists of the insidious vocal scrawl and groaning guitar drone of Rob Churm, the synthesised yelp of Jamie Grier, and the instinctively shambolic, yet biting drums, of Lorna Gilfedder. Their sound's a frantic mix of stomp rock, slop punk and no wave stylings - think Magik Markers with blips and beeps and maybe you're somewhere close. Following a debut EP in 2005 for Optimo's OSCARR label, their debut full-length 'Half Past Human' is out now on Textile Records.

THE ONE ENSEMBLE
Tuesday 7 November
The Luminaire, 311 High Road, Kilburn, NW6 7JR
8pm / £6 / www.wegottickets.com
Nalle are a Glasgow-based three piece featuring Hanna Tuulikki (vocals, kantele, flutes), Aby Vulliamy (viola) and Chris Hladowski (bouzouki, clarinet), who also moonlight as members of their hometown's jazz-folk big band Scatter. The Nalle sound is one blissed out, expansive drone, comparable to Tuulikki's Finnish compatriots Lau Nau or Islaja, but with a distinctly Anglo-Scottish twist. Nalle is like a children's toy - indeed the word is Finnish for teddy bear - a transition object between us and the world. Fused with magic, the haunting songs and sprawling melodies speak of our relationship with the sun, the mountains, and the ravens. Nalle's first full-length 'By Chance Upon Waking' is out now on Pickled Egg Records, and was hailed as "a masterclass in drone" by no less a source than Plan B.
www.myspace.com/68732431 | www.pickled-egg.co.uk | THE ONE ENSEMBLE
The One Ensemble is now, in fact, four in number. Once the solo domain of Volcano The Bear's Daniel Padden, the Ensemble has recently expanded to include Peter Nicholson on cello, along with Chris and Aby of Nalle on bouzouki and viola once again. Fusing Eastern European traditions, classical chamber music, mystical minimalism and free jazz into a heady brew, the Ensemble's music is otherworldly, magical and unmistakably beautiful. Check out their numerous releases for Catsup Plate, Textile and many more, if further proof is required.
Aum Sahib are a London-based collective - sometimes they are 2 people, sometimes they are 10 - who shroud themselves in a peculiar air of mystery. As the name suggests, they are heavily influenced by Arabian melodies, but meld this with a Western approach to improv, producing hypnotic loops of bass, electronic tabla, shruti box, flutes, pipes, sampled noise, spokenword and vocal drones.

Born in St Petersburg Julia Vorontsova is currently based in Paris. After months of asking her she has agreed to take the Eurostar to London and play some songs for us.
Julia ; “I was born in St. Petersburg in 1982, and although in western culture people describe my music as folk, in Russia they call it Bard. This is a movement that dates back to the 50s, which defines a genre in which only guitar and voice create the song. The main accent was on the words, so in most cases the poetry was more developed than the music.
People inspire me a lot, although often I feel much more in tune with animals and nature. Growing up in St. Petersburg, the city and its history had an immediate effect on me… there have always been two worlds that existed [in St. Petersburg]. One was the capital of culture where you inhale art with the air you breathe and the other was the city recovering from communism.
I am currently living in Paris , working on new material and starting to collaborate with other musicians.”
“Julia Vorontsova evokes both the gorgeous fading beauty of of her native Russia and the dissolute smoky nightclubs of Edith Piaf. You don't need the translations provided to understand the grandiloquent emotion behind 'Agape' and 'Grandfather': she sounds full of ancient knowledge...”
Everett True PLAN B Magazine, August/September 2005
JAMES BLACKSHAW :
“James Blackshaw has burst fully-formed onto the folk underground, his remarkable talents already seeming at peak maturity... Blackshaw has established himself as an instrumentalist of astonishing grace and delicacy, seeming as though he's gobbled and digested whole the primitive folk canons of Takoma and Vanguard. Relying primarily on 12-string guitar, Blackshaw's intricate creations web together Robbie Basho's wayfaring mysticism, Ben Chasny's soft-focused acid tongues, and the rustic fantasias of Sandy Bull.." - Pitchforkmedia.com
"There's an indecent ease to James Blackshaw's guitar playing. His fingerpicking mantras are as melodic as a music box, gliding through dizzying tempos like clockwork. His raga-like instrumentals are not structured as much as woven, teasing out a single melodic strand to explore all it's textural possibilities. Such is the silky control he exerts over his instrument, Blackshaw often sounds more like a court harpist than a backwoods strummer." - Derek Walmsey, TheWire
Having started off running Uncle Sam's Folk we will now be running nights at BG's on the first Saturday of each month. This is a one off mid week event.

From 25th Nov to Dec 3rd we are holding an open festival in E&C and surrounding areas.
We'll be covering London Bridge and E&C in posters, guerilla-style stickers and projections as well engineering tv/radio mentions and press coverage...so on. Here's the opportunity to put on an event and ride the press bandwagon, as well as being part of an historic event. 2005 was film-based this year we are opening it up.
The bigger your event the more publicity it will receive, but we are happy to list a small live gig in the local laundrette for audience of max 20, for example. We can also help you find a venue, get licensing to charge entry or just take your listing for the website. Send ideas proposals, or even fully organised listings to: farnaz.bradley(at)southwark.gov.uk
This should be done ideally before 6th Oct or latest 13th in order to receive proper coverage. If you come up with something later it will still go on the website which goes live Oct 6th www.elefest.co.uk
