THOMAS TRUAX (from USA)
Thomas Truax travels the world singing into a contraption he invented called ‘The Hornicator’. Constructed on the shell of a junk gramophone horn it resembles something that might have been dreamt up by Dr. Seuss. He taps out live rhythm loops, plucks assorted strings, springs and attached noisemakers, building a backdrop of layered hypnotic sounds on top of which come some of the most striking stories about clones, butterflies, dogs, technology, loneliness, and other beautiful and sad things. Splendid magazine called him “one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you’ve never heard of…an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison, yet fairly accessible even to casual listeners.
'The glammed up weirdo FilthDirty (from Evil Blizzard) gets a bit bored, finds some unreleased Blizz tracks that didn’t quite work at the time, fucks around with them a bit, dusts off his bass / electric drum kit and finds his way around some mental abrasive sound that blasts it way well over eleven.'
Granfalloon is the project of Manchester based artist Richard Lomax. Distilling elements such as the use of unusual instruments and the mix of electronics and delicate acoustics, Granfalloon produce songs of both celebration and introspection, to bring on the dawn and to contemplate the wee small hours.
Opening the night we have a solo set of acoustic ballads, laments and ditties from the eldest of the Vencido siblings!
All takes place on Friday 10th February at The Ferret, Preston.
Doors at 7pm. £6 Advance tickets. [More on the door]
