A joy ride for the ears, our line-up includes the oscar nominated Mica Levi with her DIY pop group Good Sad Happy Bad and drummers Kwake Bass, Georgia and local legend Charles Hayward in Drumglow, a bare bones funk celebration of future dance rhythm.
The evening will also feature the the warmly weird violence of Rotten Bliss, the warped singer songwriter Tom Moody and an installation space for David Bloor‘s ‘Time Lag Accumulation’. DJ Raimund Wong will also keep things moving before, between and after.
Good Sad Happy Bad
Good Sad Happy Bad is Chris Calderwood, Marc Pell, Mica Levi and Raisa Khan. Previously known as the moniker Micachu and The Shapes, Good Sad Happy Bad named themselves after their last album Good Sad Happy Bad. Things have changed a bit, Raisa Khan is leading the bands vocals and songs, and they now have the addition of Chris Calderwood contributing a minimum of vocals, sax and recorder.
One of the most established drummers in London, Bass has worked with acts as varied as DOOM (formally MF Doom), Mica Levi, Jonzi D, Jehst, Joey Badass, Kate Tempest, Shabaka Hutchings and Karl R. Able.
Singer-songrwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Georgia describes her sound as ‘post-punky hip-hop soul’. She has worked with Kate Tempest and rising ’90s-esque pop band JUCE with her 2014 EP Come In marking her as one of London’s boldest new pop voices.
Charles Hayward has made music all his life and constantly pushes at the edges of sound, from the stark prog rock of Quiet Sun, the post punk apocalyptic This Heat and Camberwell Now through to numerous solo and collaborative projects including Massacre with Bill Laswell and Fred Frith and About Group with Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip. Current projects include a new record (begin anywhere) and concerts in Japan, USA and Europe both solo and with This Is Not This Heat.
The creation of London based cellist, vocalist and instrument inventor Jasmine Pender, Rotten Bliss explores he outer limits of the electric cello, fearlessly clashing hauntology, minimalism and folk horror with noise and art rock.
An artist and musician, Bloor is interested in how people respond to limitations, each other and their environment. He is currently an APT graduate studio award winner and co curating the APT summer exhibition – ‘Touchstone’.
DJ Raimund Wong
Graphic artist, DJ and cassette loop enthusiast, with ideas of ‘chance materials’ and their manipulation being the inexact and coincidental thread between these activities. Also a bringer of music for lovers, ravers and riders alike.
A central figure in the Deptford music scene, Tom will play his distinctive solo set, taking the singer/songwriter thing and turning it inside out and outside in.
