+ Beija Flo

+ OORYA

+ Polypores

Independent Venue Week

Sunday 28th Jan 2024

The Ferret, Preston

Doors 7pm

HASSAN K. (FR / IRAN):

« A big, bold helping of what the fuck is going on here? » - The Quietus

French-Iranian one-man DIY electronic rock whirlwind based in Lille, Hassan K. has been performing internationally for 12 years with his ambitious electro, surf, rock, metal and oriental compositions (without samples, composed with clicks and electric Iranian setar, with love).

« Hassan K.’s performance consumes traditional Iranian music, a Nintendo 64 emulator or even surf garage straight out of the 60’s, all at the same time. » - Gonzaï

Hassan K. is a mystical one man band from Persia. Open source, DIY artist, Hassan mixes folklore and technologies, occident and orient, surf music and bellydance, swing and heavy metal… in crazy live acts, not too far from trance. With an augmented electric setar and a drum machine, he travels from the west kingdom to the Turan, spreading the words of his illuminated ancestors…

It is above all a unique live experience, energetic, stirred by an insatiable passion for the scene, and a unique digital lutherie which allows Hassan K. to be close to the public. Unclassifiable, but all terrain and all audience.

« Like the geniuses Mike Patton and consorts, Hassan K mixes folklore and new technologies, West and East, surf music and bellydance, swing and metal... Improbable? Flawless. » - Magic RPM

BEIJA FLO:

Impossible to pin down, Beija Flo’s sound is one that encompasses everything from open hearted balladry to acerbic punk. Tackling everything from love and relationships through to mental and sexual health, she is truly an artist for our times, juxtaposing her darkest moments against those of enduring hope. To witness Beija Flo live is an unforgettable experience. Songs, performance and costumes aside she provokes a conversation that many would shy away from. Beija Flo’s reality is weaved through music, poetry and the narrative she shares with an ever growing audience.

An Essex-native, Beija Flo now calls Liverpool her home. Involved in lots of happenings in the burgeoning arts scene, she is a regular life-model, part of the Eggy Records fold of exciting bands and artists, and a member of performing arts collective The Secret Circus. Spontaneous and with an undying lust for creative output, it’s impossible to say what she’ll turn her hand to next. 

Beija Flo has supported Pillow Queens, Genn, Thomas Truax, Crywank, Crawlers, Witch Fever, Karl Blau and International Teachers of Pop. She has also performed at Deer Shed Festival, Future Yard Festival, Liverpool Sound City, Focus Wales, amongst many others.

OORYA:

“We are pulsing against the tide of inequality, and the mycelium knows”

OORYA //. pronounced WHO ARE YA!? is a Queer Electro Punk Folk sonic excavation. 

Made with a lyrically dancing neurodivergent synaesthetic soul machine; guitar, beats, synth and accompanied by Eon The Emotional Support Dinosaur.

They are “incendiary” (BBC Introducing) “Breathtaking & Unforgettable” (Louder Than War) and a must see live!

Guest artist on BBC 6Music’s Trunk Of Punk & signed to Society of Losers (Revolutionary Liverpool based record label) on their second gig.

“It is rare to see an artist so unique” (Future Yard 2022)

POLYPORES:

Polypores (aka Stephen James Buckley) paints music with a modular synthesizer, drawing influence from ambient, new age, and experimental electronics. It soars, bubbles, crackles, and soothes, in ever-shifting, immersive cosmic landscapes. Dream environments and sonic sculptures.
