HEATHER LEIGH

The daughter of a coal miner, weaving a trail from West Virginia to Texas and now residing in Scotland, Heather Leigh furthers the vast unexplored reaches of pedal steel guitar. She’s performed and released music since the 1990s as a solo artist and with a wide range of uncompromising collaborators from Jandek to Robbie Yeats of The Dead C and has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Her playing is as physical as it is phantom, combining spontaneous compositions with a feel for the full interaction of flesh with hallucinatory power sources. With a rare combination of sensitivity and strength, Leigh’s steel mainlines sanctified slide guitar and deforms it using hypnotic tone-implosions, juggling walls of bleeding amp tone with choral vocal constructs, wrenching single note ascensions and raggedy American Primitive harmonica.

She’s played/performed/released music with Ash Castles On The Ghost Coast, Charalambides, Scorces (a duo with Christina Carter), the Dream/Aktion Unit (a group with Thurston Moore, Paul Flaherty, Chris Corsano and Matt Heyner), Taurpis Tula, Jailbreak (a duo with Chris Corsano) and Jandek, as well as collaborated with Stefan Jaworyzn (as Annihilating Light), Richard Youngs, Blood Stereo, MV & EE, Robbie Yeats of The Dead C, John Olson of Wolf Eyes, Smegma, Jutta Koether, Kommissar Hjuler & Mama Baer and many others.

“All notions of the pedal steel’s laid-back, country harmony are shattered as Leigh extols jagged notes and blocks of electric noise that seem to rail against rock, jazz and other notions of freedom music.” Dusted Magazine

“She is summoning the spirits of the ghost-women of rock ’n’ roll past who were perceived as the sponges of the love-cloaked-violence and guitar-death-gazes of the almighty rocker” Tiny Mix Tapes'

ALEXANDER TUCKER

There is a distinct otherworldliness to Alexander Tucker’s art. Psychedelic without ever resorting to tropes of the genre, it’s the subtle thread connecting every aspect of his output, from the vibrant and hypnotic avant-pop of Grumbling Fur, his duo with Daniel O’Sullivan, to extended drone collaborations with Charlemagne Palestine and Stephen O’Malley, to his beautiful yet strangely unnerving paintings and comics.

Continuing to carve out a space as one of Britain’s most forward-thinking songwriters, on Don’t Look Away, Tucker displays distinctly honest vocals with subtle shifts through unexpected variations.

Don’t Look Away contrasts traditional song structure with experimental collage and rich orchestral arrangements. Viewing Don’t Look Away as the final part of a trilogy, alongside Dorwytch (2011) and Third Mouth (2012), Tucker explains, “the composition across these three albums feels like a move away from my earlier records towards something clearer and traditional but still maintaining my love of manipulating source material into new shapes and forms.”

MATTHEW SHAW

For this evening of reality-collapsing psychic resonances, we’re also honoured to welcome reclusive seer of English pastoral drone, Matthew Shaw – in whose work patient fingers craft hymnals at the meeting-point of cracking seed-husks and sap-beneath-bark; and static thrums evoke the ocean’s roar and the electromagnetic thrum of cloudless, star-filled skies.

Through his work as Tex La Homa and in collaborations with Scottish sound artists Brian Lavelle (as Fougou) and Andrew Paine (as The Blue Tree), Shaw has refined an approach that is distinctive and powerful, sifting found sounds and field recordings with finely traced details and mounting swells of treated strings, guitar, synth and a broader uncatalogued sonic apparatus.

This has resulted in the perfection of an idiom which, though wholly Shaw’s own, unites the organic resonances found in Richard Skelton’s fellwalker’s symphonies with the fiery, silver-hued crop-circle afterburners of Flying Saucer Attack.
