The Remote Viewers grew from the ashes of B. Shops for The Poor in 1997, originally as a vocal-based rock/improv trio, recording for the Leo Records label. After a brief break, the band reformed as an instrumental collective, using prominent members of the London improve scene, with the compositions of David Petts being the common factor. Many more releases have followed. The current line-up, performing music from their current release, “Last Man in Europe” , is a trio of composer Petts and long-term collaborators, saxophonist Adrian Northover (Sonicphonics, The Monk Trio, Hog Callin’, London Improvisers Orchestra etc.), and bassist John Edwards (Evan Parker, Roscoe Mitchell, Sunny Murray, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, Lol Coxhill, Peter Brötzmann, Mulatu Astatke, Fred Frith, Thurston Moore etc.).
This latest incarnation of the Remote Viewers finds it stripped down to a trio to enter its most visceral and detailed phase. The compositions lead to an exhilarating mix of discipline and freedom.

This new project with composer/ percussionist/turntablist Val Jeanty arose from her participation in a jam session at Pioneer Works in
Brooklyn, NY while Momin was artist-in-residence [1] there in September of 2017. Their collaboration, rooted in improvisation
shaped by ritual, evokes the esoteric realms of the creative subconscious. Drawing from the voodoo religion, Val recreates the
ancient rhythm and pulse of Haiti through digital beats, while Momin, whose own musical background is rooted Indian, North African and
Middle-eastern traditions, has developed an original blend of electro-acoustic beats, drawing together the improvisational traditions in Jazz and South Indian classical music. Together they explore the capabilities of new technologies to create a seamless blend of multiple electronic and acoustic instruments.

Pristine is a psychedelic rock blues band that hails from Tromsø wich is located in the northern arctic region of Norway, and with the charismatic redhead Heidi Solheim in front they forge their music with power, passion and intensity – blues with trace of southern rock, soul and funk.

Kawa brothers are a Sufi traditionnelle musical group who hails from Jaipur, Rajasthan from India.They are from a famous musical family and have performed all over the world.They have two kinds of group.​One is classical and another Sufi music. They often perform in European cities like Paris,Holand, Germany Spain, London etc.In th Classical group they are three brothers Shahid Hussain Kawa, Yunus Khan Kawa, Mosin Khan Kaw

This impressionistic vintage psychedelic group shimmers it’s atavistic underground message from Linköping’s alleys, a city shadowed by ancient cathedral and vitalized by university and high technology industrial enterprises. The spontaneous sonic outbursts of Sven WALAN (gtr/kb), Jonas HÖGLUND (gtr/viol), Rickard DAUN (kb), Martin DAUN (bs) and Lars HOFFSTEN (dr), are captured with old school ways to limited edition tapes and vinyl LP’s. These elevating sonic adventures could be compared to the sonic idioms of groups MY BROTHER THE WIND and maybe more rustic incarnations of GÖSTA BERLINGS SAGA and THE SPACIOUS MIND, but the diversity and imagination utilized on the explorations within the frame of neo-classic psych music straits allow them their own identifiable sound, setting the group out of the conventional clone bands. This Swedish underground acid rock also certainly expand the impressionistic boundaries of musical expression from conventional sound structures to the heights of hallucinogenic progressive territories and reaching escape velocity for the planes of Space Rock and beyond. A very recommendable group for listening through turntable, cassette player, web pages or most ideally from a local concert venue.

Acclaimed indie-rock songwriter Jeffrey Lewis began recording homemade cassettes at home in New York City in 1998, before coming to the attention of Rough Trade Records (label of the Smiths, the Strokes, Belle & Sebastian, etc) and releasing his first album on Rough Trade in 2001. Now with seven official albums on Rough Trade, and a number of additional self-releases and side-projects (on labels like Don Giovanni and K Records), Jeffrey Lewis and his various bandmates have toured the world and developed a devoted following from Los Angeles to London, Melbourne to Moscow, Chicago to Shanghai and beyond. Jeffrey’s career has also included sharing bills and tours with The Vaselines, The Fall, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Roky Erickson, The Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Pulp and other luminaries. In addition to mixing contemplative folk narratives and garage indie-punk songs, Jeffrey is also a comic book writer/artist and includes his own illustrations in live concerts to accompany certain songs (like « The History of Communism » or « The Creeping Brain »). Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts currently features Mem (Cat Tatt, Fem Doms) Pahl on bass and Brent (Dufus, Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums.

An international collaboration yielding both humor and angst, the art-noise-rock trio SHAR features the post-punk harsh-psychedelic latex balloon instruments of Judy Dunaway combined with the brilliant yet quirky musical duo Ilja Komarov (bass) and Trixa Arnold (drums).
Judy Dunaway makes her instrument sound like a cross between Hendrix’s feedback-drenched guitar, the moans of Albert Ayler’s sax and the high wail of a Jewish shofar…it’s hard to believe it’s all done with balloons. Judy Dunaway can perform solo before and the Shar tour.

Thank you for your time and reading.

All the best.

Availability: From 8th June 2018 onwards
Territory: Europe


ZOHASTRE is an astronomical word game inspired by the language of the birds, sonic meld of stars and letters, wild drumming and bewitched
electronics – what happens when two suns/particles collide?

The Shee are an exceptional all-female band showcasing powerful vocals and instrumental prowess. Described as ‘flirtatiously funky’ by The Scotsman, as well as ‘boasting some of folk music’s cutting-edge instrumentalists and singers’ by the Daily Record, their music features original compositions alongside a wealth of traditional material. Their adventurous brew of Scottish folk, Gaelic song, and bluegrass has earned them fast growing recognition.

Located at the border between an experimental rock noise, a resolutely contemporary aesthetic and the electroacoustic drone, the music of NOORG refuses to enter a defined category.
The two musicians work the sound like material sculptors: weaving a complex web from a single continuous thread, they work to the millimeter, sharpen the thicknesses, move the sources in space to give birth to a soundscape acoustic, electronic, rhythmic and harmonic.

Molto is the electro-acoustic improv project of Lorenz Lindner aka Mix Mup, known for his productions on UK labels TTT and Hinge Finger. Under his Molto guise he focuses more on his Jazz influences, building abstract and subtle compositions and grooves from percussive instruments with minimal electronic touches. Like the sculptural work of Lorenz Lindner the music of Molto focuses on the beauty of the casual. His music is highly reduced, yet his adept play with dynamics/pauses/silent sections will swep the audience away to a distant island and let them sink into a sandbank of sound.

The group’s full-bleed white-noise provocation, fueled by tabletops of wired-up stomp-boxes mewling muddy gusts of noise and tribal flurries of floor-tom bashing, soon becomes a shared bacchanal of (nearly) naked amp jumping and eardrum-violating cacophonic garble.
Expect a ‘frenetic, a wild, free jazz cacophony, a melange ofclamorous, ultra-hyped horns, sonorous lowed drone and is dominated by truly frenzied, cacophonous bent. Circuits fizz and hum while the percussion thrashes and crashes arrhythmically, throwing the listener around with reckless abandon a roller coaster of tempestuous sonic mania

BOO FOREVER is a multi-voices, multi-dimensions, visual and poetic live performance trying to present the equally rich andpolymorphic work of American writer Richard Brautigan (1935-1984) best known for his book Trout fishing in America. Boo Foreverbecomes a journey during which folk, rock and electronic musical creations meet with poetic pieces composed by writers of diverse origins and are also accompanied by video projections. The ensemble transports the audience into the concrete and/or phantasmagoric universes that marked the American writer, both as a man and as an artist. Both the arts of music and videography are always present on stage. They are completed by writers’ interventions, sometimes on stage or solely through their voice, creating a sort of dialogue between words, music and images. Some of the latest also allow us to see and hear Richard Brautigan himself. This presence – his presence – in the performance represents for us both the starting point and the finishing line of a journey through his literary work. As a whole, the performance constitutes, let’s put it this way, a poetic ensemble, in which each participant (musicians,videographer, authors) contributes to generate a singular whole that resonates way beyond a basic homage dedicated to the American author.

A lynchpin in South Africa’s new generation of jazz musicians, KwaZulu-Natal-born guitarist and vocalist Sibusile Xaba has all the makings of an acoustic guitar master. With a vocal style that is part dreamscaping and part ancestral invocation, Xaba divines as opposed to plainly singing. Combined with a guitar style that is rooted in expressive picking, Xaba’s music shatters the confines of genre, taking only the fundamentals from mentors such as Madala Kunene and Dr Philip Tabane and imbuing these with a mythology and improvisational intensity all of his own.

The War Poems of Wilfred Owen read by Penny Rimbaud (founder of Crass) with Liam Noble on piano and Kate Shortt on cello, incorporating visuals by Gee Vaucher.‘The poetry is in the pity.’
Penny Rimbaud is known as the author of countless books of poetry, philosophy and polemic, as well as a founder member of the now legendary group Crass. His current band, L’Academie des Vanités, appears regularly at the Vortex.
Liam Noble is perhaps the most iconic pianist ever to grace the Vortex stage, whether it be solo, or recently with Paul Dunmall and Dave Liebman. Lyricism, imagination and oblique humour merge seamlessly.
Kate Shortt has worked extensively over the years with Penny Rimbaud and more recently with Christine Tobin. Her fierce avant-garde romaticism puts her in a class of her own.

Thanks for your time and reading.

All the best.

Kawaguchi Masami’s machine gun guitar, which stutters in a polyglot tongue drawing equally from Rory Gallagher, Jerry Garcia and Lou Reed. » — The Wire magazine (U.K.)
The projectユs name (Kawaguchi Masami’s New Rock Syndicate) doesnユt lie: while there are slower, shadowy dreams, much of the disc is heavy riffage in a Blue Cheer-meets-Rallizes-cum-Nuggets-style fuzz zone. »– Mason Jones (musician, writer U.S.)
Kawaguchi Masami is a Japanese guitar monster who has done time in Miminokoto, LSD March, and Broomdusters, and played with Keiji Haino for a time… Its exceptional wailing, burning garage psych-rock grounded in Kawaguchi’s trademark heart-breakingly melancholic emotional intensity, instantly hummable, head-nodding toe-tapping riffs and melodies and unavoidably air guitaring white light, white heat guitar solos. »- -Palindrone (N.Z.).

Based on their own interpretation of James M. Cain’s classic novel « Mildred Pierce », Dominique Van Cappellen-Waldock (Baby Fire, von Stroheim, etc.) and Alwntr (ex-OMSQ) team up and deliver a dystopian soundtrack to one of the greatest American stories of the 20th century. They both imagine alternative chapters that draw Mildred’s fate into murder, poisonous gardening, humiliation and vengeance.
Preface, their debut EP, was released in August 2017.
Since September 2017, Cécile Gonay (Seesayle, Baby Fire) has been a recurring guest on violin. The band’s debut album is scheduled for May 2018.

Anaïs Tuerlinckx is a pianist from Brussels. She started to play the piano as a child with György Kurtág’s “Játékok” discovering pretty early the noisy and physical potential of the piano. Later on she began to practice collective improvisation and moved to Berlin interested in the local improvised music scene where she began to develop her solo project. Tending to a rather physical and expending way of playing, her performances are characterized by a decidedly harsh and noisy but at the same time elegiac, breezy and spacious sound.

Hugo Race and Michelangelo Russo are no strangers to either Hooker or the blues. Hailed as a supreme influence on the music of their band Hugo Race & The True Spirit, Race and Russo’s reimagining of Hooker is simultaneously blues, electronica, avant-garde and ambient, a homage to one of the greats of rock and roll prehistory.

All the best.

The project Mascarimirì took shape between the Fall of 1997 and the Winter of 1998, when Claudio ‘Cavallo’ Giagnotti and Cosimo Giagnotti (two brothers of Roma origins) chose to end their experience withTerra de Menzu, one of the first bands that, at the beginning of the 1990s, contributed to the resurgence of Salento traditional music. Between 1999 and 2003 the musical project got stronger andmore mature. Vito Giannone (mandolin) and Beppe Branca (bass) joined Claudio ‘Cavallo’. Branca’s entry in the group, with the introduction of the bass line in the groove of pizzica pizzica,represented the out-and-out turning point towards.
Tradinnovazione. “Punk-Dub Tarantolato Salentino” was the definition used to underline the experimental vocation of the band that inserted into the traditional musical heritage some
techniques not used, until then, in the traditional music style of Salento. When Beppe Branca left the band, Alessio Amato, a very young musician, joined it. Following the lead of Beppe
Branca, in the last 10 years Alessio Amato has been promoting and combining the sounds and styles of electronic music. With 8 studio-recorded albums, and a first-class concert activity, the
band from Muro Leccese represents, today, the most innovative expression of Pizzica PizzicSalentina.

The Wave Pictures – Jonny Helm (drums), Dave Tattersall (guitar & vocals) and Franic Rozycki (bass) – return with their new album ‘Bamboo Diner in The Rain’ due out in November 2016. Following on from 2015’s Billy Childish collaboration ‘Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon’ and their recent acoustic record ‘A Season in Hull’, ‘Bamboo Diner in the Rain’ sees The Wave Pictures battling against the robot music apocalypse. The album is a bluesy, boozy love letter to the guitar, filled with American Primitive instrumentals, John Lee Hooker chugs and Link Wray style minor-key surf music.

After building and painting their own instruments with their 4 hands, DEUX BOULES VANILLE starts the dissolution of their influences and personal ambitions into a huge melting of techno, breakbeat, improvisation, and create a music related to Tony Conrad, last Rihanna hit, a local crust band and Silver Apples at the same time.
Simple, effective, without any technical flashiness, Deux Boules Vanille compose with a mathematical rigour, considering accidents and chaos with the same intensity Burt Bacharach would use with orchestrations.
As a result, a cranky music, danceable, absurd, you can listent to in the pit, in a club or at the supermarket !

Hailing from Central Sudan and now based in London after fleeing the fundamentalist takeover in that region, the Scorpios are a septet that melds Arabic rhythms and guitar chops (and a kind of swooning cyclical ecstasy) with a raw Eastern funk feel, properly dismantling cultural barriers in pursuit of a unifying rhythmic bliss. Heavy bass, synths, horns and percussions drive through traditional Sudanese forms to create a sound that owes as much to Detroit as it do to Khartoum.

Elliot Sharp’s excellent take on R&B, funk and blues. This is music from the soul that summons visuals of dark, NY back streets alive with « creatures of the night »! Elliot handles all instrumentation effortlessly, while Eric Mingus belts out vocals occasionally reminiscent of Tom Waits, Don Van Vliet, and street corner blues crooners. « Mr. Trouble » is an exceptional example of this. Remarkably, this is a « pop » album recorded flawlessly, without over production and nonsensical fluff. In an online conversation, when I mentioned « pop », Elliot assured me that this was indeed intentional. He stated; « The only difference between pop music and my music, is that my music is not popular! » An eclectic journey into « pop outside the boxes »! Feast your ears…

Andy Cartwright’s project ‘Seabuckthorn’ drifts nomad like, through his uniquely crafted musical landscapes. His music explores alternative terrains on six to twelve strings, often with minimal, layered accompaniments. Sometimes quietly ambient, often powerfully expressive.

Night Viper are a hot rockin’ heavy metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden
featuring past and present members of Church Of Misery, Horisont,
Miasmal and Lethal Steele. Combining the classic metal spirit of Judas
Priest with the riff intensity of Metallica, along with a big handful
of rock ‘n’ roll attitude, they’ve proven to be the breath of fresh
air heavy metal have been waiting for. Since their first show in 2014,
they’ve released a single and their first full length album both
through Svart Records, and have toured Europe three times and played
highlight sets at festivals like Roadburn, Muskelrock, and Heavy Days
In Doom Town, and played two sold-out nights in a row supporting
Graveyard in their home town. They are about record a new single and
are working on material for their second album.

Thank you.

All the best.
