I love this new piece we’ve written, said Julia. But I think it should be faster. How can we make it faster? Asked Fritz. Let’s put it on wheels, said Julia. Will it be able to go around corners? Asked Liene? Yes, said Julia.
Fast forward to April 2016 >>>>>
It’s Called Discharge
The New Performance by Asparagus Piss Raindrop for 6+ Roller Skaters and amplified Roller Rink. Semi conductor life lines of symmetry exceed centrifugal life boat love ins. Kind of Like the moment you noticed that Cole from Sunset Beach was in But I’m a Cheerleader but louder, faster, longer and with a flashback corner. But seriously: afforded the use of the Roller Stop Roller Disco for crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax music we will continue to push beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. Now and forever.
Free after show skate taster session &/or free skate hire throughout the festival for attendees.
Easy access via Kinning Park / Shields Road Underground, Buses along Paisley Road West.
When & Where
Asparagus Piss Raindrop
Asparagus Piss Raindrop are a crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax band dedicated to pushing beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. APR is formed from a dreadful, ever-expanding pool of performer / composer / improvisers from the Glasgow experimental music scene. The group‘s work arises from the questions; How can we do things otherwise? What musical forms arise from and inform our daily experience? Performances typically draw on such things as recycled children’s games, group therapy, shapeshifting, declarations of ridiculous texts, geology, architectural intervention, gender theory, site specificity and slug reproduction. APR have been commissioned to produce work by Tectonics Glasgow, Tectonics Iceland, Transmission Gallery Glasgow, Association CRIC in France and Supernormal Festival in Oxfordshire.
Asparagus Piss Raindrop is a buncha B-sides on heavy rotation
…stands alone with four heads, eight arms and a six pack
…runs for office on a platform made of mud.
…jacks into the darkside with dancing shoes and hair tonic.
…shows up for a teach-in at the drive-thru
…runs amok for uncanny incantations.
