Nonclassical ventures into radical soundscapes of bold new music, free improvisation, and iconic solo flute repertoire. Prepare for three diverse and fiercely unapologetic acts that will shake-up curious ears and minds.
Headliners for the night, this cross-arts collective has been creating infectious buzz with their experimental performances in South East London. Performing new works by collective composers Timothy Cape, Fred Feeney, Edward Henderson and Paul McGuire, Bastards will adventurously expand the timbral colours of percussion, the durational extremes of the tuba, and the blending of spoken text with electronics.

Bad Vibrations & Dolphinarium Present: CROWS ‘DYSPHORIA’ SINGLE LAUNCH, The Black Tambourines & Puffer – Friday 28th February
Posted February 25, 2014
Bad Vibrations & Dolphinarium team up to bring you one of our favourite London bands Crows.
These guys have been making all kinds of waves since we first caught them back in March last year and we’re properly delighted to be asked to help them launch their new track DYSPHORIA!
“Several things about tonight’s show suggest they are ready to escalate their operation and broadcast their switchblade surf and terror psych on fatter bandwidths. Onstage, singer James Cox has the cocaine-y, lounge lizard vibe of Richard E Grant, courting the middle distance with the pout of a consummate frontman. The other band members range from mean to almost affable, via scruffy. It’s in their facial expressions – confident, scornful and hungry – that you can see the clearest intimation of future greatness.” NME Magazine

“They’ve jammed econo, taking a vegetable-oil-powered bus on tour and selling copies of their first EP on CDRs packaged in recycled brown paper bags. They’ve nabbed opening spots for Cold War Kids and Gogol Bordello. They’re a mix between a DIY band that might get a wink and a nod from Gregg Ginn and that guy who’ll argue “The Rat” is the best thing the Walkmen have ever done.” – Pitchfork

“Using sonic sorcery to create an aural representation of man’s journey to hell.”
Given that they’re a duo, these boys make a stupefying amount of glorious noise recalling the likes of Led Zep, ZZ Top and Wolfmother. When the played Double A- side release Tempting Meat/Metal Bar (out now on Caledonian Records), It triggered an onslaught of Scousers dressed in matching baby blue shell suits to go completely barmy – to which the band responded with faster jams and funnier hair flicks. These boys love to rock, and that love for what they’re doing makes them a joy to behold: they are truly exciting.
