Nocturnal Emissions (UK) live
www.earthlydelights.co.uk
www.nocturnalemissions.bandcamp.com

Nocturnal Emissions has been one of the best kept secrets of the industrial genre since the 1970s. Led by Nigel Ayers, the band was one of the first to use tape cutting, avant-garde art, and underground video works to create a stage experience that was being cultivated by like-minded artists like Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire. The band moved on to using samplers and electronic noise in their early ’80s work, creating a twisted funk sound that would go on to influence everyone from Foetus to Negativland. They still utilized their former tricks, upping the ante with extremist performance art and more professional video displays. The group avoided signing to a major label, instead focusing on releasing their own music more effectively. They followed this path into the ’90s when they started www.earthlydelights.co.uk, an incredibly detailed website that promotes their various ideologies (they are strongly against the British monarchy and believe that citizens should have unlimited access to space travel) and constant release schedule. The band has released countless tapes and CDs of their material, and continues to unleash their noise through their website. Mannequin hast just released a compilation focusing on Nocturnal Emissions’ work between 1980 and 1989

Crab also learned traditional African and Middle Eastern music and is a member of London’s Gamelan orchestra.

Scarlatti goes Electro , MDMS SPKR , Debmaster

Urban Spree late live shows !!!

SCARLATTI GOES ELECTRO

Duetto for harpsichord and Synthetizers

SCARLATTI GOES ELECTRO is a duo formed by Antoine Souchav’ and Michel Bananes Jr, mixing baroque music and electronic music. With lots of frenetic rythms and bass lines (and in authentic costumes), in a free adaptation of the score, where the instrumental playing has a real importance, comes a generous and dancing music, always fast and heady.

« I was totally stunned when I heard them ! Their compositions are fantastic! They are remarkably skilled, and I predict that they will succeed incontestably in this fucking profession; they’ve finally found something to brighten up the obsolete and deteriorated state of current electronic music

And they do it with very new sounds, most importantly thanks to an overflowing imagination and also with the audacity and humour of youth, an attitude which greatly distinguishes them from the old guys…  »

JEAN-JACQUES PERREY

MDM SPK (London)

« MDME SPKR make and create for me the most unique and hard real punk music around -why you might ask ?because they pander to no one are lyrically poignant and above all do not have an identikit look that would appeal to the neurosis of a scene or the desire to be in one which what was punk was all about originally -this is a true organic band all on it’s own beautiful axis all 100% DIY- the music speaks for itself hard and visceral,i’ve said enough ..LISTEN !!! » Cherrystones ( Touch Sensitive/ Brutal music ) ///

« Ego-destroying and powerful soul music in the true sense of the word » Demian Castellanos (The Oscillation) ///

« MDME SPKR make a dirty fuzzed up noise that sends me back to a Seattle,New York,Chicago or Washington basement in 1987 » Chris Reeder(Rocket Recordings) ///

« Sludgy, apocalyptic doompunk of the highest order” Steven Krakow(Plastic Crimewave ) Drag City ///

« Discharge without guitar solos » Utrillo (Comets On Fire) ///
