Edinburgh Castle 27th February

Sunday 27th February, Edinburgh Castle, Sydney Rd, Brunswick:

Francis Plagne’s music has been described as sounding as ‘close to Pet Sounds era Beach Boys as it does a musique concrète future classic or an exercise in folk collage’ (Mess + Noise) and as the ‘unlikely amalgam of Antonio Carlos Jobim's samba and an Andre Breton poem’ (ThreeThousand). At the Edinburgh Castle he will perform with a five piece band: Connal Parsley (bass, guitar), Alex Garsden (guitar), Joe Talia (drums), James Rushford (viola), Judith Hamann (cello).

Yuko Kono (Japan) leads Tokyo’s greatest minimalist psych-pop group, My Pal Foot Foot. Solo, she accompanies her whispered, highly melodic song-craft on nylon string acoustic guitar.

Samuel Dunscombe, of vanguard Melbourne chamber ensemble Golden Fur, presents a visceral solo laptop performance, born of several years of theoretical and practical research into the possibilities of real-time digital music.

Gasometer 26th February

"Francis Plagne - Wobbly/crystalline chamber pop version.

Cocks Arquette - Grudge match with one's self at unreasonable volume.

Von Einem - Solo set from Grover of True Radical Mircale,
Whitehorse, Dead Boomers, Dick Threats,
Richie Blackmore's Rainbow, et al. Will make
the other two bands sound like pussies.
Brutal karaoke jam upstairs afterwards for those who wish to
make party."

Thanks to Hanna for the great poster!
