Dark Party presents THE BRACKISH
Monday 25th September
The Old Blue Last
Psychedelic vanguards and misfit maestros of Bristol's BLOOM music collective, THE BRACKISH are an audacious all-star assembly of guitarists Luke Cawthra (Phantom Limb – The Naim Label) and Neil Smith (This Is The Kit – Rough Trade), drummer Matt Jones (Zun Zun Egui – Bella Union) and Port Erin bassist, Jacob Tyghe. Their debut album, 2014's Big Guys (Lava Thief), righteously filled a kaleidoscopic void in instrumental music and along with 2016's follow up album, Liquid Of Choice (Bad Elephant Music), the band gained an infamous reputation for their awe-inspiring live shows across the European and UK art rock scene, including the La Ferme Électrique and ArcTanGent festivals. With a third album rapidly underway, THE BRACKISH are storming the stage again with a new brew of gracefully strange arrangements and improvised auditory theatre.
«Rutger Hauser's spontaneously generated riffs and beats are peppered with found sounds from cassettes and records, and not-quite-sci-fi interjections of cheap synths and self-made electronics. Unofficial house band of The Lumen Lake experimental music nights in SE London, Rutger Hauser are dedicated to an inclusive and accessible mode of group improvisation and to having fun in performance.»
Born in France, and musically trained in Brazil, Londoner Clémentine March writes songs and instrumentals that cross language and genre borders, mashing French and Brazilian influences with her experiences playing with, to name a few excellent co-consipirators, Snapped Ankles, Julien Gasc, Mega Bog, Pollyanna Valentine, and her previous band Water Babies. Her debut EP, 'Les Etoiles à Ma Porte' was released last June on the Belgian label Freaksville Records, produced by none other than the adroit talents of Syd Kemp, an EP that sings exquisite songs of time travel, imaginary landscapes and real relationsips.
