Another cross genre, cross era selection of sounds, including dancehall rhythms from Jstar, a 21st century torch song from Ida Sofar, soundtrack music from People Like Us and Barry Adamson, classics of post punk and acid house from Pere Ubu and Armando respectively, and a Kate Bush song reimagined as a Trip-Hop workout. It’s the best of all possible whirls. (Picture by Marin Forcella).
Featuring a sexually charged groove from The Anti Group, blistering rock thrills from Press Club, an electro trans anthem from Girls Rituals, sugar-coated Lynchian pop from Princess Chelsea, soundtrack work courtesy of Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson and Sigur Rós, sublime solo piano work from Robert Haigh and a long lost and potentially libellous Rolling Stones song. It’s the best of all possible whirls. (Image of a Peter Land sculpture).
That rare thing - a show that starts with a slice of vintage Roxy Music then just gets better. Featuring twisted pop from Mitski, two tracks from Iggy Pop with Underworld, three very different Japanese artists, Britpop darkling Luke Haines performing with the amazing Christo, a mod classic from 1965, plus soundtrack treasure from two giants of the genre: Stanley Myers and Laurie Johnson. It’s the best of all possible whirls.
Another unbridled collection of cross genre treasure. Including soundtrack music courtesy of Sonic Youth and a band called Bullet, sleek Detroit style techno from Head Technician, exquisite modern composition from Katie Chatburn, 60s psychedelic soul from The Locomotive, Michael Stipe guesting with Utah Saints, and a song largely constructed from the sounds of the Windows operation system that may well be the funkiest thing you’ll hear all week. It’s the best of all possible whirls…(Picture...
A feast of highly addictive music in a multitude of genres. Featuring sun-kissed songs by The Creatures and the oddly named Lump, an exceptional track from Christo where Donald Trump reads a poem, plus 1970s soundtrack music as featured in The Tomorrow People and Blood on Satan’s Claw , and a piece of truly sublime music from Carter Tutti. It’s the best of all possible whirls…
It’s a Cover Versions Special!! The songs of New Order, Captain Beefheart, Billy Joel, Roxy Music, Prince, and many more, refashioned by bands such as Mazzy Star, The Fall, The Golden Filter, My Bloody Valentine and Candidate. It’s the best of all possible whirls. (Picture credit: Beccy Ridsdel).
Another spectrum straddling selection of sounds, including the high heeled shoegaze of Echo Ladies, two servings of electro-kosmiche from the new Immersion album, exemplary soundtrack work by John Barry and Wil Malone, a totally unique song from Oracle Hysterical and a classic dub from Crucial Bunny, with perhaps the finest ever use of a trombone. It’s the best of all possible whirls. (Picture by Dimitri Tsykalov.)
