Otis Jordan: A cut and paste mixtape of fractured folk, sci sounds and jazz, at times sounding like a long-lost archival recording of primitive tribal dance music. Instruments are plucked, strung, hammered, and bowed into webs of rhythms and resonance. With a penchant for delightfully disorientating the listener into deceptive, audio wormholes, Jordan thrives on crafty found-sound experimentation. For the gig he will be joined by Samandtheplants and DBH.
Samandtheplants: Homespun harmonium songs from the valleys of West Yorkshire. Sam’s music entwines fractured folk songs with and a wide range of homemade mechanical music machines ranging from zygotic zithers to 10 second tape loops, lutes and flutes. He is returning to The Cube 10 years after a gig with Broadcast.
‘Imagine Delia Derbyshire in deepest Lancashire recording a Nepalese Incredible String Band with members of Os Mutantes and Faust keeping the generator warm and the kitchen operating in audible proximity.’ Andy Votel
