Optomusical agglomerate, Sculpture, is Dan Hayhurst (musician) and Reuben Sutherland (visual turntablist). Live, they use computer, tape recorder, video zoetrope turntable and electronic devices to generate an unstable multisensory overload.

For the next performance they will be: Alison O'Melia - Piano / Accordion / ClarinetGeorge Harris - Spoken Words / Machines.

DJ Fireboy The Third Jnr (Captain Spangles/ STEREO/ Junkshop) and Blenda Jaxxon (Castlemania) will be spinning the coolest cuts of cheapo vinyl from the last 60 years of popular music. They have been doing some serious bargain bin crate digging to find the best thrift shop shakers, charity shop stormers and boot fair belters to get the dance floor moving.
