tAngerinecAt are musician and activist Eugene Purpurovsky originally from Ukraine and Paul Chilton (UK). Eugene has been making music since 1989 and has national awards as a singer-songwriter, poet and actor. In their project with Paul they transform Eugene's traumatic and rebellious experience into music and poetry using organic and electronic instruments with effect pedals - especially notable is their use of the hurdy-gurdy - loops, samples and driving electronic beats. They weave together various styles and approaches in their own unique fashion honed over many years.
tAngerinecAt take influence from their expeditions to Carpathian Mountains, doom-metal, Ukrainian and Soviet counterculture, post-punk, Gothic music and various genres of electronic music.
They have four independently released, successfully selling albums that have had airplay on BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 6. The band has toured internationally in Ukraine, UK and Russia.
'tAngerinecAt have been playing gigs at the Adelphi long before they were tAngerinecAt! Even back in the days of their previous incarnation of Dark Patrick, they were always Adelphi favourites.During our 35 years of running a fully independent underground music venue, we've come to terms with the fact that our most important mission is 'to move music forward as an art form' and tAngerinecAt fill that description whole heartedly. They are not background music that you hear on the radio whilst you move things along a conveyor belt, do the washing up or try and cop off to. They are music that you listen to and for it subsequently 'feel' to and get transported by. With the added bonus of always generating a dance floor and a room full of happy sweaty people. Plus, how often do you get to rave to a Hurdy Gurdy?! True one of a kinds, a delight to work with and always a top choice for any billing.' - Mat Oliphant. Manager at The New Adelphi Club (the legendary venue that recently won the 2019 Outstanding Achievement and Contribution to Grassroots Music Venues Award, where bands such as Radiohead, Pulp and recently Fatboy Slim played)
'Watch out for: tAngerinecAt... this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time...' - LOUDER THAN WAR
“tAngerinecAt brought not just synth to the table, but a whole range of physical, classical instruments into the mix – most noticeably their use of the hurdy-gurdy, to make their music the deep notes of severe doom and dread that gave it the feeling of a rave in a mausoleum...”- Ben Knight, LEFTLION
'Tangerinecat exploded into my world and I'm a happier man for it! Awesome energy and multidisciplinary. Myself and the team at New Art Exchange really appreciated your work.'
- Jason Pollitt, NEW ART EXCHANGE
'I've never seen someone play a hurdy-gurdy so punk...'
- DEVIL’S DYKE NETWORK
LouDSpeka is an MC/ Spoken Word Artist with eclectic beats. Meandering between sweet and sour, ironic and serious. Drum n Bass, Hip Hop and Trip Hop all with an essential Raptivist flavour. Her pieces have a paradoxical mix of gentle and strong, taking on the banks and transnational corporations with her pacifist ammunition. Her lyrics are political and mystical. She also touches on the philosophical and meditative with vague comedy stretching to the surreal. Her conscious spoken word pieces feature issues she's passionate about which include, Global Justice In World Trade, Peace and Climate Justice.
