Champagne Dub + Dry Cleaning + Capitol K

Ruth Goller (melt yourself down/acoustic ladyland) features on Bass with her legendary distinctive sound. Ed Briggs is a sound artist from brighton who uses a homemade synth incorporating mechanical parts from a Herdie Gurdy. He also Programs using MaxMSP where he can perform mind melting sound granulation in real time. Mexican Hypnotist Nahum’s day job normally sees him working for the European space Agency where he works as an artist/magician/. Champagne Dub sees him feature on his natural instrument the Theremin. Mr Noodles is a London based performance artist who can be heard on vocals and seen exploring physical interpretive movements.
Dry Cleaning are a new 4-piece from South London channeling post-punk and new wave pop with a side order of low slung americana. Their upcoming 6-track EP ‘Sweet Princess’ is a kaleidoscope of images collaged together, from the everyday to the stars and back.
