Whats On

Dean McPhee / Sam McLoughlin & David Chatton-Baker

Wednesday, 13 December 2017 - 8:00pm
 
HOOD FAIRE & THEM THERE RECORDS present 
 
Dean McPhee
 
Dean McPhee is a solo electric guitarist who combines fluid, chiming melodic lines with shimmering drones and deep layers of decaying delay and echo.  He has a unique style of playing which draws together influences from British Folk, Dub, Kosmische, Post Rock and Mali Blues and his music has a hypnotic and dreamlike quality. His latest album “Four Stones” is due to be released on Hood Faire (a label run collectively by Dean, Sam McLoughlin and David Chatton-Barker) in January '18  and brings together three tracks that were originally released as part of limited edition Folklore Tapes cassette compilations along with two new tracks that use a kick drum pedal, adding a percussive undercurrent to his music. 
 
“Definitely one of the leading contemporary guitar stylists in the UK, and in the world” (Steve Barker, BBC "On the Wire")
 
"One of the UK's most interesting solo guitarists" (John Mulvey, Uncut Magazine)
 
Sam McLoughlin & David Chatton-Baker
 
Sam McLoughlin plays homemade instruments and contraptions, along with guitar, analog synths, harmonium and pump organ. Sometimes he sings songs, other times he combines handmade Moondog-like percussion with microphone feedback, synth drones and unpredictable bowed textures to produce improvised music with magical and shamanic overtones. Sam recently released the album “Flaming Liar” on Them There and has previously released music on Andy Votel’s Twisted Nerve as well as Folklore Tapes, Pre Cert Entertainment and Hood Faire. David Chatton-Barker is the co-founder and captain of the highly regarded Folklore Tapes label which was recently described by Brainwashed.com as “possibly the most unique and fascinating label around”. As well as being a visual artist and film-maker David also specialises in playful and atmospheric collages of sound, dictaphone recordings and live improvisation. Like Sam he also builds his own very inventive and visually striking homemade instruments and sound making devices which he uses to perform live, along with projections and ritualistic interventions.
 
All happening on Wednesday 13th December 2017. Doors are at 8pm. 
 
Entry is just £5 on the door.
