TAngerinecAT UK tour/Riotmiloo/The Mollusc Dimension on Friday 26th October 2018
Cute Owl Promotions proudly presents: tAngerinecAt, Riotmiloo and The Mollusc Dimension as part of the London leg of tAngerinecAt's UK Tour. An amazing night of highly individual music.
tAngerinecAt was formed in 2008 in Ukraine as a collaboration between Ukrainian born Eugene Purpurovsky and English born Paul Chilton. Their music absorbed the musical, poetic and social forms of Ukrainian and Soviet counterculture; the classical music skills, composition, directing and stage experience of Eugene as a singer, actor, poet and musician in solo and various musical projects - from classical to metal, since 1990, and his experience living in rough social and economic conditions and resisting authoritarian structures.
Together they traveled to remote places in the Carpathian Mountains gleaning from the local music culture. Add to this witches brew influences from EDM, blues, metal, art-rock.., and their persistent use of unusual musical instruments – most notably the hurdy-gurdy, - and you will get raw powerful cinematic and deeply atmospheric electronica with punk attitude that touches the inner most part of the human personality and is reminiscent of a tapestry with many different details.
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 from 2010 and since relocating to UK in 2016 have quickly gained momentum, intensively touring with headline shows in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol, Brighton, Lancaster, Hull and nearly everywhere in between resulting in them having a large number of fans all over the UK and organize their own nomadic festival of unusual music called Cute Owl every season. They just released a long-awaited by their fans new album Many Kettles which is only available at their live shows at the moment.
'Watch out for: tAngerinecAt... this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time...' - LOUDER THAN WAR
'I've never seen someone play a hurdy-gurdy so punk...'
- DEVIL’S DYKE NETWORK
“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...”- LEFTLION
'Eugene is a fantastic singer, a ranter and belter with occasional glassware-shattering screams. As abrasive noise went, I liked them a whole lot...' - ROCKNERD
Riotmiloo's musical roots come from riotgrrrl’s screams and protest. She started as the lead singer of the London garage punk band Venom Seeds (2003-2008) before showing strong interest in industrial and electronic sounds.
In 2015, Riotmiloo released her first concept album 'La Pierre Soudée', a careful selection of past and present real life stories documenting women’s political and social suffering in the world.
Magazines worldwide noticed her strong vocal and her intense stage presence, delivering a live cathartic and hypnotic rhythm and noise experience. The music creates an emotional journey ranging from dark ambient soundscapes to powerful rhythm and noise supporting a vocal delivery that is in turn melancholic or intense. Visuals add another layer to reinforce her message courtesy of the haunting double exposure photographic work of Jessica Hosman.
“Riotmiloo shines brightly with her razor-sharp, confrontational and socio-political lyrics.' - Dark Entries
“We can hear the throat-grabbing cry of fear […] as if it could choke you at any moment.” - Luminous Dash
'Launching herself onto the ground, several times, showing a commitment to the music which nearly removes her black silk dress...' - Artrocker
“The singer will make you choke on her demonic fury.” - N16
THE MOLLUSC DIMENSION
QTPOC experimental artist The Mollusc Dimension (Keys + Words) brings you serious / funny / ghostly / interactive (I made space for you!) songs about his life - mostly written in the last year or so. “From time to time, I become deeply entangled in some strange mystery, and write songs to dream and move again.”
'The Mollusc Dimension played at Decolonise Fest's lunar new year special gig. Their music was electrifying and dynamic and really got the crowd buzzing.' - Jon from Decolonise Fest
'Virtuous keys player and brilliant singer who effortlessly moves between styles. The Mollusc Dimension perfectly interacts with the audience through his art captivating them with amazing stories. A lot of warmth, fun, love and kindness.'
