Sunday February 19th 2017, 4pm - 7pm. at Delius Arts & Cultural Centre, 29 Great Horton Rd, Bradford BD7 1AA.
El Hombre Trajeado (Chemikal Underground Records)
Legendary Glasgow SST loving postpunkers who went on to be (in) RM Hubbert, Sound of Yell and many more return with new album Fast Diagonal on Chemical Underground Records. Peers and collaborators of Mogwai, Arab Strap, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Sebadoh, The Delgaodos, Tortoise etc. and an old fav of John Peel.
Mojo Magazine on Fast Diagonal: “There’s a jazzy intuition to their jerky kinetic jams that recalls fIREHOSE, Slint and prime-time Minutemen………..underlining the sophisticated, nonlinear pleasures at the frenzied core.” (4/5 stars)
The musical jewel in Shipley’s crown Aby is a musician and composer, performing and recording frequently as a violist, pianist and vocalist in a range of ensembles and collaborations spanning jazz/improv, classical, folk and pop including Bravest Boat with Stevie of El Hombre Trajeado. Her recent solo performances put viola, voice and casio keyboard to innovative and disarmingly touching effect.
Bradford’s finest large format post rock noise folk ensemble whose epic cinematic compositions promise to fittingly lift the roof of the Germanic Church surroundings of Delius Arts and Cultural Centre. Think Explosion in The Skies, Dirty Three, Godspeed but more Bradford like.
