Hogwash 22 cheers

Thanks to all the folk who came down to Chunk in Leeds for the 22nd Hogwash. A near full house witnessed fine sets from Sadistic Statistic, Gannet, Poulsen//Procter and Sindre Bjerga//Stuart Chalmers. Good vibes all round. Left camera at home, so images/video captured = 0. There is some audio and it'll become available soon enough. One image I do have is Noah Brown's ace poster, and here it is -

More from Multiversal, January 2018 - Copenhagen and Hamburg

Multiversal moved on from Oslo to Copenhagen, with performances at THE noise venue for the city Mayhem and new (ish) space near the main railway station 5e. Dave Procter attended to collaborate with Claus Poulsen as PP and Legion of Swine combined forces with Theo Strauss, both shows at 5e. Some images and audio were captured, the images appear below - thanks to Utku again for capturing the duos in action and organising and thanks to the folk who did the fine food -

The following pictures are from my own lofi, low light collection - good fun all round.

When it was all over in Denmark, some of us went to Hamburg to play on MS Stubnitz, an old DDR warship that's now been converting into a cultural space, moored near the new university campus. Trowser Carrier made a triumphant return "home".....some images follow and thanks to all on the ship who made us so welcome -

Legion of Swine and Dave Procter appear at Multi NO!V in Oslo

Multiversal is a non-stop (pretty much) touring collective of experimental musicians around Europe. The latest leg is in Norway and currently in Oslo. Legion of Swine played solo and Dave Procter (electronics) was also lucky enough to perform with Samuel Bobony (drums) and Murat Copur (bass). Utku Tavil, who is the main organiser of the whole thing, captured some images and Fredrik Falk captured Legion of Swine via video. The results are below. Thanks gents for your great work.

Cameras and audio devices captured the whole couple of hours of fun. Below are the images; the audio and video will be online soon enough :-).

Hogwash images appear!

Tuesday just gone saw the welcome return to Leeds of Hogwash. We were very lucky to have the fine artists Stuart Chalmers and Sukitoa o Namau sandwiching the noisy sod Legion of Swine. Some photos were taken, the light was very low as befitted the night, so the quality is not the best shall we say.
