Das Rad and Modulator ESP

I witnessed Das Rad’s first outing (comprising Steve Dinsdale, Martin Archer and Nick Robinson)…a fusion of treated guitar, wind instruments and drums with a smattering of keyboards. They performed a set at Bishops House this evening…Not bad at all.

Support was an excellent electronic feast of loops and modulation by Jez Creek playing as Modulator ESP.

Exclusion Principle and Lost Garden

Exclusion Principle and Lost Garden each played a set at a new Sheffield venue last night…upstairs above Eten Cafe on York Street. Both groups joined together at the end to perform what the called a “sonic jam” I was near the front and didn’t have a wide enough lens so this shot combines two photos: Martin Archer , Hervé Perez, Andy Peake and Nick Robinson from one, and drummer Peter Fairclough on the other.
