MERRY XMAS!!!




Happy Christmas to all of you and a very very big thank you to everyone who has played, come to a show, worked with us in any capacity, bought records, sent emails and said hi at shows. Without you none of this would be possible!

An extra special thank you to all of the Upset the Rhythm-ers - to Luke, Maria, Dan, Kimberley, Marc, Aymie - and to the UTRers that are in foreign lands - Sophie, Tanith, Chukka and John. This year we have done more shows and more records than ever before and it would not be possible without the extended family. We hope that you enjoy the rest over Christmas!

2011 here we come!

Now we are SEVEN

Exultations!
Here we are at the end of the year with our last show until the end of January. It's been an incredible seven years since our very first show, with Deerhoof in a small yet somehow cavernous Italian restaurant on Great Portland Street and in honour of the hugely unlikely event that we'd still be organising shows for our favourite bands many years later we've organised a festive blowout tonight at Corsica Studios. This last year has seen us release a slew of amazing music from the UK's thriving underground music scene and we're lucky enough to have DRUM EYES, TRASH KIT, PLUG and PEEPHOLES all representing tonight. To fully over egg the pudding we also have long term buddies EAT SKULL and DESIGN A WAVE joining proceedings too, its going to be the best! Tonight's show will run between Corsica Studios two rooms and here's a guide to the approx timings, doors at 7.30pm!

Design A Wave - 8pm
Plug - 8.40pm
Peepholes - 9.10pm
Trash Kit - 9.40pm
Eat Skull - 10.10pm
Drum Eyes - 10.40pm

Monday 20 December
Corsica Studios, 4/5 Elephant Rd, SE17 1LB
8pm | 8.00 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/99753

DRUM EYES are DJ Scotch Egg's drum thunder worship gang - experts at whipping up a hypnotic maelstrom of tribal drumming trip-outs infused with sludgy doom and weird electronics. It makes a lot of sense that Eda from the Boredoms is a member of Drum Eyes as the songs can twist 180 degrees and equally sound as beamed in from some alien kingdom, taking the weirdest forms of krautrock and hurling punk synth ideas, crushing walls of ambience and 8-bit frazzle into the mix with relish. 'Gira Gira' - the band's debut album - was released by Upset The Rhythm earlier this year to much acclaim.
www.myspace.com/drumeyes

EAT SKULL released their album 'Sick to Death' to worldwide accolade for its frantic pacing, unimpeachable lyric quality and nugget-after-nugget of pop hooks. On their follow-up 'Wild And Inside' - also on Siltbreeze - fans will find a cleaner, more inimitable Eat Skull at work. Frontman, Rob Enbom, has outdone himself with both lyrics and structure, and the band as a whole rises to the challenge of nixing the lo-fi tag for a sound that's less... antecedent. Gone is the wall of crud that prevents discerning listeners from identifying the instrumental play-by-play. In its stead is a set of crafted songs that recall the paisley punk of The Last and the rural-delica of Great Plains, as well as nodding to the sanguine pop of early Flying Nun bands such as The Double Happys.
www.myspace.com/eatskull

TRASH KIT are a gang of facepainted flag-bearers who have a wild feel for melody and a heartfelt kick inside each song. Mixing chaos, considered songcraft and overlapping harmonies in equal measure, the female trio sound as joyful as they are focussed. Rachel Aggs, Rachel Horwood and Ros Murray formed the band in early 2009 and since then have been lighting up London, energising the UK underground with their raw performances. There's a stripped back quality to their music that packs the bravest of punches. Both Rachels tangle their vocals with each other, whilst expressive drumbeats and impulsive guitar and bass lines pin down the songs. Trash Kit sound both urbane and primal - drawing on the potential of punk and the naturalism of an internal folk music - and as a result sound like nothing else. The band's self-titled debut album is available now on CD and LP through Upset The Rhythm alongside their recent follow up 7" single 'Teenagers' / 'How Do You Do?'.
www.myspace.com/trashkit

PLUG are an articulate drums-and-also-bass duo from London who deal in heartily-voiced, compulsive melodies married to an incessant nodding groove. Comprising Sian Dorrer (vocals and drums) and Georgie Nettell (bass, keys and vocals) PLUG construct minimal pop vignettes with bright, sumptuous basslines locking indelibly with crisp, taught drumming - a deceptively simple yet driving combination owing as much to hip-hop and dance as the sparse clatter of post-punk. Songs are handled deftly with Sian's strident, powerful vocals augmented by Georgie's more subdued whisper. PLUG play a sophisticated kind of post-something pop with a brisk intensity, a wry sense of humour and a canny knack for a memorable hook. This party celebrates the release of PLUG's self-titled debut album out on Upset The Rhythm.
www.myspace.com/plugddd

PEEPHOLES are Katia Barrett and Nick Carlisle who take turns singing, drumming and synth-prodding whilst smiling a lot and running back and forth on stage. Their songs, often cloaked in a cloud of echoing atmospherics, throb with raucous beats and jab you in the eye when you're not looking. It's party music for the lost at sea - sometimes tribal, sometimes soaring, never boring. Peepholes have a number of self-released EPs available through their website, a brilliant record on Hungry For Power and, most recently, a split 12" EP on Upset The Rhythm.
www.wearepeepholes.co.uk

DESIGN A WAVE is one-man recording machine, Tom Hirst, sometimes in solo musical guise, sometimes with added choreography. Design A Wave have perfected an emotive, melancholic synth pop which nods towards the eccentricity of artists like Snakefinger and Tuxedomoon, the synthetic slickness and charity shop glamour of Italo Disco, and the misery of coldwave. Design A Wave have a brand new 12" record entitled 'Live On Your Yard' released through Alter Records now. This is the first vinyl release in Design a Wave's 10 year history, following on from a slew of humble and privately distributed CD-Rs, and also the first Design A Wave recording to feature external musicians - Melissa Osborne on synth and Will Saunders on bass.

Thanks for supporting us so much this year and we wish you exceedingly merry times! Mince pies at the ready, see you later today!

PLUG Album Release Party!



Oh boy!
Thee Oh Sees killed it on Monday, it's unbelievable how they outdo themselves each time they play, what a band! PLUG are another band not content to rest on their laurels, they just keep reaching for that next level and tomorrow we've organised a party with them to celebrate their debut album release on Upset The Rhythm. It's in a new venue for us called ARTCH which is essentially an arts space in a railway arch (hence the name) next door to Bethnal Green tube station. Alongside PLUG we have THE DEVIL bringing their almighty clatter and DESIGN A WAVE fresh from their new record on Alter. Three of our favourite UK bands all in one space having a knees up in honor of arguably the best pop album of the year! Live music will tie up around 11pm but then we have Mike Levitt and James Stringer DJing afterwards into the wee small hours so be sure to get your groove on. OK, enough warble, here's the info you may like to assimilate...

THE DEVIL is a three piece group from London. The first day's play was quite painful for them in a physical sense. They had the mother of all hangovers and the bright illumination of the venue, plus the additional TV lights, weren't exactly helping. Even Reardon complained about them. The day finished with Ray Up 8-5. Their school report that night would have read: "The Devil is a slacker, must do better in class and pay attention more." It was 2006 and their lives were rapidly going down the same hill as their marriage. A psychologist once said of them: "The Devil is the nearest you will get to a sane group." They did get some revenge for the Reardon defeat though when they beat him in the finals of the Canadian Club, but it was scant consolation. They went back to Australia to try and patch things up with Cara and also play some gigs there. No manager, a bad name and no world crown. Next they had to sort themselves out. They made a promise that The Devil would return.

Oh yes, previously HAWNAY TROOF was down to make one of his final UK appearances tomorrow, but his flight gets in on Saturday now so we've scheduled him to play with his buddy FRANKIE ROSE next Tuesday now. Vice Cooler is never one to miss, god how we love him!

If you can't make it to Artch tomorrow to pick up a copy of the PLUG album (and of course get them to sign it!) their self-titled debut is available now through our webshop too:

http://upsettherhythm.bigcartel.com/

... which concludes our spell of releases for this busy year! Did I mention they make excellent Xmas gifts? Because they do, nudge, nudge, wink, wink! Look out in 2011 for our special UTR 50th release and the return of JOHN MAUS with his new record entitled 'We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves', very exciting indeed. Has the sun actually appeared in the sky today? Praise be! See you tomorrow, as always,

UPSET THE RHYTHM - EPISODE 13 - XIU XIU & ZOLA JESUS & FORMER GHOSTS


Upset The Rhythm TV #13: Former Ghosts vs. Zola Jesus vs. Xiu Xiu from Charles Chintzer Lai on Vimeo.

For episode 13, we present the trinity of Former Ghosts, Zola Jesus, and Xiu Xiu. They casted a spell on us with their performances at XOYO, so much that we trusted them to take our camera backstage without any guidance. This is a story about friendship and gratuitous product placement.

Edited by Charles Chintzer Lai

Cinematography: Jeremy Abbott, Maria Cecilia, Charles Chintzer Lai

Guests: Former Ghosts, Zola Jesus, Xiu Xiu

UPSET THE RHYTHM - EPISODE 12 - SCREAMING FEMALES


Upset The Rhythm TV #12: Screaming Females from Charles Chintzer Lai on Vimeo.

Screaming Females are violently loud on stage, introspective and soft-spoken off stage. We had a candid with them about why Marissa likes to wear uniforms, how they aim to challenge lesbian stereotypes, and how they engage with ethical consumer decisions. See Marissa shred on guitar in live performances of I Don’t Mind It and Bell. Oh yeah, we also made a tampon advert (!)

New KIT 'Invocation' CD and LP released TODAY tooo

Kit "Rain" from who ate my teeth? on Vimeo.

KIT are a super-melodic experimental rock band mainly from Los Angeles, California. They were recently described by Rob Barber of High Places as "a strange intersection where Void meet Incredible String Band". This gives some insight into their wonderful muddling on genres. They play fast, short, defiant songs that mess with the ideas of pop music and wayward punk. Maybe they'll start off playing a song straight - sweetness and light abounds - but before you know it everything gets flipped on its head and chased into damaged terrain. KIT songs can typically embrace hardcore rush, pop verse, jagged noise and cheer rally, all within the same moment - nothing but raw energy and instinctive songwriting holding it all together.


'INVOCATION' is KIT's second full-length and sees them producing a decidedly more reflective and considered album. Rooted in the occult and metaphysics, it's drenched in West Coast sunshine noir - a contradiction of excessive over-the-top speed-demon pop and ominous leviathans lurking right below the surface.

Recorded at the Department of Safety in Anacortes, Washington aka "Nowhere" - before this legendary all-ages art space shut down - the band removed all of its familiar comfort zones for the sessions of 'INVOCATION'. The northern latitude meant longer days to work in and a refurbished fire station to play with, the sound of its concrete halls folding into Phil Elverum's (Microphones, Mount Eerie) unorthodox recording.

'INVOCATION' is available on CD and LP as of TODAY here:
http://www.upsettherhythm.co.uk/shop.shtml


x

New TRASH KIT 7" released TODAY!



Trash Kit return with a new 7" single bearing two of their finest tracks yet. 'Teenagers' is a triumph of immediacy, mixed emotions and thunderstorms, whilst double A-side 'How Do You Do?' is ultimately poignant with its mixture of handclaps and twisting melody. "Will I remember her this September when it gets wet? Break me up, sweep me up," sings Rachel looking backwards with different eyes.

The 7" is limited to 500 copies on translucent orange vinyl. The digital version is accompanied by an exclusive song entitled 'Happy New Year', taken from the same session as their album and included recently on their tour-only cassette compilation.

AVAILABLE HERE NOW: http://www.upsettherhythm.co.uk/shop.shtml

and lots of shops across the world from Monday!

FORMER GHOSTS - Taurean Nature VIDEO


Directed by Amir Shoucri, “Taurean Nature” is the second video from New Love, the new album from Former Ghosts. A very sublime profile of self-hatred, it features Freddy Ruppert as Elvis Presley on his day off.

“The original concept was to recreate a complete Vegas-era Elvis spectacle,” says Shoucri. “I planned and arranged the production for months -- lights, stagehands, the works -- at great personal cost, both financial and mental. We hired four hundred extras: a 23-piece backing band with vintage instruments, a stadium-sized audience all done up in period haircuts and wardrobe, and a second film crew "shooting" a video within the video -- just for effect. We even rented an outdoor marquee for the establishing shot. The day before the shoot, Freddy changed his mind. He said: "I'm just not feeling it dude." So we fired the entire crew, most of whom have families to support, and made this instead.”

Amir Shoucri grew up in Los Angeles. In 2008, he directed a short film called Decent People. He currently lives in New York City, where he works as a freelance video journalist.

UPSETTING NEWS


Hello again everyone!
I told you we were busy right? Today we have a free digital single from MUNCH MUNCH available for you here:

http://www.upsettherhythm.co.uk

Two twist-and-turn masterworks ahead of their trippy 'Double Visions' album out on UTR next month, look out world! We also have two fresh episodes of our ongoing interview series with GRASS WIDOW and ABE VIGODA now live on our blog here:

http://www.upsettherhythm.blogspot.com

Thanks to Mr Chintzer for his sustained efforts of awesome. If that wasn't enough, we're closing the week with two shows we've been looking forward to for way too long. Dean from No Age told us a year or so back about GUN OUTFIT for the first time, espousing their greatness to such a degree we checked them out immediately and weren't disappointed, everything returns to Olympia. Gun Outfit make really wild and blurry songs which sound as dreamy as Cocteaus whilst still riding a smart noise punk horse. We've helped them book a UK tour (all shows on our website now) which kick off things in London tomorrow at The Grosvenor along with GUMMY STUMPS, HUMAN HAIR and GROPETOWN all supporting = perfect times!

Our other show this week will turn Friday night into a sweaty dance party and/or puppet show par excellence at The Dome in Tufnell Park. QUINTRON AND MISS PUSSYCAT bring the ultimate party and after playing last for UTR five years ago we've been trying to tempt them back across the pond ever since. No amount of hyperbole can stand if for actually seeing them play live so take heed! OK, I'll leave you with these show details and all future listings below...


> > > TOMORROW EVENING < < <

GUN OUTFIT
GUMMY STUMPS
HUMAN HAIR
GROPETOWN
Thursday 21 October
The Grosvenor, 17 Sidney Road, Stockwell, SW9 0TP
8pm | 5.00 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/84224

GUN OUTFIT are from Olympia, Washington. Three-piece rippers that take you back to a time when riffs were weird and hooks were awesome. Honing in on influences from past greats like Meat Puppets and Dinosaur Jr, Gun Outfit create their own sound that is equal parts melody, jangle, punk and pop. On their debut 7" and follow-up album 'Dim Light' - both for PPM - they inspire and twist a sound you wish you had as a teenager. Like a dream you were waiting for. Like a brand new 45 you were wishing for all month, it finally came in the mail, and it is better than you could ever think.
http://www.myspace.com/gunoutfit

GUMMY STUMPS hail from Glasgow and are spicy Colin on vocals, Rob on guitar and Ruari on drums. Influenced by Silver Apples, Ex Models, Clock, DVA, Wire and 13th Floor Elevators, they make loud, interesting pop music. They have a 7", EP and single out on Narrative / Sorcha Dallas, Watts of Goodwill and La Station Radar.
http://www.myspace.com/thegummystumps

HUMAN HAIR are a whirl of yelped sloganeering, intricate riffs and lurching repetition that sounds continually new throughout. Evoking The Birthday Party, Pissed Jeans and The Jesus Lizard, yet never directly echoing any of them, they peddle creepy post-punk with a dirty lo-fidelity crackle. Featuring Henry Withers of Lovvers on guitar, their debut, self-titled 7" is out now on Sex Is Disgusting.
www.myspace.com/humanhairband

GROPETOWN is nothing but noise, thrash and more noise. Coming out of the same Glasgow artschool / post-punk scene as Divorce and Ultimate Thrush (with whom they share a drummer) Gropetown are harsh and immediate. Powerhouse screaming, vague black and white imagery, some notion about art and a whole ton of attitude.
http://www.myspace.com/gropetown


> > > FRIDAY EVENING < < <

QUINTRON & MISS PUSSYCAT
THE NUNS
PRIVATE TROUSERS
Friday 22 October
The Dome, 178 Junction Rd, Tufnell Park (opposite the tube), N19 5QQ
8pm | 6.50 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/86406

QUINTRON is a very eccentric concert and nightclub organist from New Orleans, Louisiana. He plays music on a custom made Hammond / Rhodes combo synthesizer / organ - which he's got all built up to look like a car with real working headlights - backed by raw simple drum machine beats courtesy of his own patented invention the Drum Buddy. MISS PUSSYCAT plays maracas and sings backup as well as entertaining all age groups with her highly amusing technicolor puppet shows. The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, small explosions, incredible clothes, and entertaining stories.
www.quintronandmisspussycat.com

THE NUNS are an all-lady six-piece who love The Monks. They love The Monks so much, in fact, that they play the songs of the Amercian GIs turned garage rock pioneers, replete with full habit get up.
www.myspace.com/itsnuntime

PRIVATE TROUSERS are a curious quartet from London who specialise in the heartfelt and downright odd. They mix drums, whistles, vocals, keyboards and ukulele, plus many other instruments baring strings, together into a wondrous cacophany of spooked shanties and wayward post punk. This all provides the perfect landscape for their associative lyrical ponderings on a diverse subject matter taking in William Tell, the bottom of the sea and the voice of God.
www.myspace.com/privatetrousers


Thanks for reading and thanks to everyone who came out to see DEMONS and THE EX this week too. How amazing were NISENNENMONDAI last night?! That epic new track on the keyboard is self-proclaimed "cheese-wave" which sounds gross but I'm already won over, can't wait to see them next Tuesday too at The Nest (the new new Barden's) no less. Have a brilliant Wednesday and we'll see you over the next few days.
Gratitudes forever!

NEW 12" - PEEPHOLES / APATT Split 12" Series


Yes, our new record from Peepholes and Apatt is released this week. It's a solid slab of heavy euphorics, throbbing hollers and oddball instrumentals all captured on "blood red" vinyl.

PEEPHOLES are Katia Barrett and Nick Carlisle who take turns singing, drumming and synth-prodding whilst smiling a lot and running back and forth on stage. Their songs, often cloaked in a cloud of echoing atmospherics, throb with raucous beats and jab you in the eye when you're not looking. It's party music for the lost at sea - sometimes primitive, sometimes soaring, but never boring. Their side of the 12" is called KINGDOM and features the following tracks: Airforce Trainer, Batwingy, Alpine Song, Sleep In The Shower, Pulling Cars and Carnivore




a.P.A.t.T. are a collective formed in Liverpool in 1998 and are pretty much impossible to classify! United by their branded nurses' outfits, but performing with everything from 2 to 7 members and going through a constant evolution of hardware and software changes, the group fuses mathy, synth-led moments with almost Klezmery freak-outs rendered in accordion, strings, brass and piano. Think the missing link between The Locust, Danielson Famile and A Hawk and A Hacksaw and you may be getting close! Their side of the 12" is called PAUL THE RECOD and features the following tracks: The Village Idiot, Candlelight, 10 Downing Street, Taxi Driver, I Fucking Hate Tamla Motown, Everybody's Talkin' and Maggot Fairy




The record is available now in shops around the world specialising in music and it is also available now online through itunes, boomkat, emusic etc... BUT most importantly it's...

FORMER GHOSTS - 'New Orleans' VIDEO





This is one of our favourite tracks from Freddy's upcoming album 'New Love', out on Upset The Rhythm on November 9th!!! The video just premiered on Pitchfork today and you can watch it above. Directed by Michael Fierstein, the video inspired by "New Orleans" features a young women pushing away the idea of "love" that she fells she no longer wants and has been forced upon her. It was shot in the Silverlake and Echo Park districts of Los Angeles over the course of two days. Burning flowers are such a potent image I can't believe I haven't seen that before. DARK

FUTURE ISLANDS TOO


Hey everyone!
Stop the presses... FUTURE ISLANDS are going to play tomorrow evening's show too as they wanna warm up before braving the wild's of Europe, super lineup alert!!!
Yours,
UTR


IDIOT GLEE
FUTURE ISLANDS
MOON UNIT
SLUSHY GUTS
Wednesday 15 September
Old Blue Last, 39 Great Eastern Rd,EC2A 3ES
8pm | £5.00 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/89521

IDIOT GLEE comes from Lexington, Kentucky and has a sound that lies somewhere between Jens Lekman’s thoughtful crooning and the classic auteur-pop of Brian Wilson or even Another Green World’s Brian Eno. James Friley, who is Idiot Glee, creates songs that resemble lo-fi, fuzzy, scratchy versions of tunes from a musical about the late 1950s directed by David Lynch. Friley describes what he does as "post-doo wop", the music being light on instrumentation and heavy on vocal harmonies, it's got a similar spectral feel to Perfume Genius but also sounds deeply haunted by the ghosts of Bobby Vee, Bobby Vinton and Bobby Darin. Idiot Glee have a 7" EP out now on Hop Hop from Lexington and a forthcoming single planned with Moshi Moshi, they are currently on tour in Europe with Women.
http://www.myspace.com/idiotglee

FUTURE ISLANDS are a new-wave dance band from North Carolina, now residing in the fertile "music capital of awesome", Baltimore. Future Islands play a terse yet passionate music wrought from a stripped back palette. Gerrit Welmers' cartwheeling synthesizer melodies tumble across the austere wilderness of William Cashion's post-punk bass pulse, driven ever forward by an ecstatic feel for rhythm. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the band's sound however, takes the form of Sam Herring's guttural vocal, delivered as Glen Danzig if he ever found himself in a Shakespearean tragedy. At times on its knees at others belted out like it's the end of the world, Herring's vocal lends a raw emotional warmth to the group's resolute synth-punk bounce. Debut album 'Wave Like Home' was released on Upset The Rhythm, whilst new album 'In Evening Air' came out on Thrill Jockey earlier this year to great reception.
www.myspace.com/futureislands

MOON UNIT are an elevating Glaswegian trio consisting of Ruaraidh Sanachan (Nackt Insecten), Andreas Jonsson of Lanterns, and Peter Kelly. Moon Unit write songs with a cosmic magnitude whilst trying to keep things as telepathic as possible. They have a debut LP available through Krayon Recordings and a new record on Blackest Rainbow called 'Hell Horse And Heady Stratus'. The five tracks on this new LP make up one of the best psyche out, freak out full lengths we've heard this year. It's an incredible record filled with furiously wild drum explosions, keyboard zone outs, sci-fi guitar shredding, and wailing feedback.
http://www.myspace.com/wearemoonunit

SLUSHY GUTS is a deliberate stripping back to basics, a concerted effort to write a song one could whistle and an exercise in embracing fear. At once melodic and dissonant, poetic and honest, intimate and claustrophobic, Slushy Guts is awkward pop music, naked and uncomfortable, a bundle of subtle unease and a maze of contradictions, a too long sentence, a load of heartfelt non-sense. It tried to just be happy but got confused and came out kinda sad. The recent ' LIV EATT HEW IND MILL' EP and the '5 Songs Forgotten Or Mum's Obviously Punked' CDR are available now through Chaos Vs Cosmos.

YES WAY 2010!!!


Are you ready to have fun?

YES WAY!

Tomorrow evening through to the end of the weekend will see us hosting along with mega-friends Auto-Italia a three day celebration of the verdant underground art and music communities across our Sceptred Isle. We've entitled this festival YES WAY in the spirit of venture and positivity. The event will take place from 6pm til Midnight on Friday and Noon til Midnight on Saturday and Sunday and takes place at Auto-Italia's gallery space in Peckham (address and directions below). The space used to be a car showroom so we're able to run two stages in the two adjoining warehouse rooms. 41 different bands are going to perform and many artists will exhibit over the whole weekend. None of the music will overlap and the timings will be announced only at the event each morning. There'll also be a temporary DIY supermarket, a YES WAY zine collecting work from the bands and artists involved this year, a live TV lab opening the festival up to viewers on the internet, an impromptu dance lesson in the park, a selection of great food (vegan/veggie/meaty/cakes galore) for sale and a not-for-profit bar helping to support the event. I've been looking forward to this for so long I'm half delirious that it's finally upon us, time to build some staging, screw some lights to the ceiling and construct the sound systems!

Everything you need to know is summarised nicely here:

> > > SELECTED INFO ON SOME OF THE ARTISTS INVOLVED < < <

NEW DISPLAY STRATEGIES will present 'Art in the service of interdependence'. Taken from the idea of Art in the service of the revolution, the artists re-present Russian constructivist theatre design as sophisticated propaganda.

EDDIE PEAKE & PAUL SIMON RICHARDS will be presenting a new video performance that draws links between the beautiful horrors of the body as explored in Shakespearean tragedy and YouTube dance instruction videos. These bodies take the form of characters and objects as well as media languages such as television sitcom and football.

DANIELLE DEAN works with bright colours and sculptural forms, real or imagined, to explore contemporary ideas of race and social difference. She will be collaborating with photographer, Theo Cook, to create images with reference to a variety of media - science fiction, advertising and pornography.

JULIA CRABTREE & WILLIAM EVANS build consuming sets with reclaimed materials. They will present experiments with found footage and outmoded display equipment.

LUCKYPDF will specially construct a television station, shortcast inside the Auto-Italia building and streamed online, with live transmissions throughout the weekend.

RACHAL BRADLEY is producing a giant cape costume, which the drummers of different bands will physically inhabit. Huge arrows create an energy flow towards the performers with the force field marked out by crystals harnessing all of the nest energy in the world.p>

RUTH EDWARDS is making a celebratory monument. Suspended above the bands as they play, it will depict imagined interactions between the different groups and people involved throughout the weekend. To mark this occasion she will also be releasing a flock of Doves in the park across the road from Auto-Italia.

UPSET THE RHYTHM - EPISODE 5 - NO AGE

Upset The Rhythm TV #5: No Age from Charles Chintzer Lai on Vimeo.



Here is the latest episode of Charles Chintzer Lai's Upset the Rhythm TV, where No Age are filmed at Dial House, Essex and live at The Grosvenor, Stockwell.
At the start of the episode, Randy comes face to face (or maybe face to neck) with his larger than life recreation, part of Charlotte's art project. Said giant Randy now watches me all day while I work.

Enjoy!
