ROTTEN BLISS

Disturbing dreams and tender imagery haunt the violent, warm and weird visions of London based cellist, vocalist and instrument creator Jasmine Pender, whose work voyages through noise, drone, folk, blues, and sound collage, featuring powerful and hypnotic vocals set against exploratory cello sounds and home made instruments, with traces of Nico, Laurie Anderson and Arthur Russell. "A thing of disquieting dark beauty... hints of Nico chill with both a magical and macabre unease" - Mark Barton, The Sunday Experience

JOWE HEAD

Jowe Head is a musician and artist from the Midlands of England, now living in east London. He started his musical career in his home town of Solihull with various school friends in 1972, a project that came to be known as Swell Maps. This group, also featuring the late Nikki Sudden and his brother Epic Soundtracks, emerged in the late 1970s, and are now known as legendary pioneers of what is now referred to as the “Alternative Rock” scene. They set up their own record label, and mixed Punk Rock with experimental psychedelic sounds. “The mad genius behind the mad genius of Swell Maps, the band who re-invented music as therapy for northern neo-depression in the really 1980s. A man of many talents.” (Time Out, London)
