SHATNER’S BASSOON

Steeped in malfunctioning improvisation, passive-aggressive minimalism, surreal avant-punk and free jazz trances, Leeds quintet Shatner’s Bassoon sound like little else. Since their formation in 2010, the experimental outfit’s intense maelstrom of beguiling yet disturbing noise has earned the group a reputation as a must-see live act.

Each member has a wide and disparate influence and approach to making music which all filters into the bands overall sound of evasive song structures, angular rhythms and anxiety inducing psychedelia.

“When their virtuosity blasts through, it’s as shocking as a smack in the chops” (Jazzwise)

“Adrenaline-pumping exhilaration, that’s rather addictive” (Prog Magazine)

MAN FROM URANUS

Phil MFU brings vintage electronic outer space sounds and rhythms inspired by Library music, comedy Jazz and sci-fi soundtracks to the Live setting. Groovy grooves and melodic melodies framed in conceptual conceptions.
