Ship Canal is Daniel Baker. "Music For Burning Kebab Houses. Ghost Shops. Flash Mob Rioters with Rabies. Asbocore." (Kid Shirt). Dole noise. Psychic damage-tech. "The grey concrete crunch of bastard techno and mangled dubstep and seventies tv filtered through damp plasterboard walls.” (Cows Are Just Food).
Chris Douglas has been making some of the most beautiful and strange electronic music of the last 2 decades as exemplified on the utterly superb and undersung 2011 compilation Benacah Drann Deachd
. This is an extremely rare chance to see Chris perform live, a special opportunity to savour what The Wire called some “of the most striking evocations of the life of the mind that you’re ever likely to hear”.
2011’s most staggering eruption – Whitehouse mainman William Bennett emerged with a hugely visceral and equally meditative album, Afro Noise, which combined electronics with percussive instruments from Ghana, the Congo and Haiti – a startling strange and towering achievement. Cut Hands live is a truly formidable prospect –prepare yourself for a truly powerful experience.
We're truly thrilled to be welcoming Andy back to Exotic Pylon. Despite producing stunning work for many years now Andy Stott hit a critical peak last year with his 2 monolithic EP's Passed Me By and We Stay Together. Stott has regenerated with a bizarre and sluggish sound - abstract and claustrophobic but with enough traces of rhythm to keep those zombies stomping (it's not called Knackered House for nothing). This is what will be an incredibly rare opportunity to catch Andy in such an intimate venue.
