  • David Cooper Orton 2016

    David Cooper Orton

    • Time: 8:30pm
    • Info: Initially inspired by the Beatles and Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, he has survived a headlong rush through blues, "prog", fusion, punk, and jazz - plus: a failed audition with Henry Cow. Now living in Penarth, David's main musical focus is ambient guitar and "livelooping" - the use of digital technology to capture phrases of music and sound, then "loop" them to produce repeating patterns which gradually develope into evolving musical compositions. His palette of influences ranges from guitarists Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, David Torn John Martyn and Nick Drake; minimalist composer Steve Reich; ambient guru Brian Eno; and music from around the world. ------------------------------------------------------------------- "Adept looping and a neo-minimalist compositional approach lie at the core of this wonderfully melodic and aurally exquisite collaboration between British guitarist David Cooper Orton and American upright bassist Steve Uccello" [Barry Cleveland reviewing the album Warp and Weft for Guitar Player magazine] "David Cooper Orton's eclectic set of folk, jazz and blues creates a beautiful sound...[using] guitar and electronics, he transfixes audiences with his ability to fill the stage with multiple layers of music from his one instrument" [Make it Yours programme notes, Glanfa Stage, Wales Millennium Centre] "Letter perfect...lyrical and groovacious" [Guitar Player magazine] "combines Frisell-like twang with minimalist delicacy" [Time Out magazine] "His style is delicate and pretty, in the style of ECM Records jazzers from the 70s or a John Martyn solo." [BUZZ magazine] "Cooper Orton, who describes himself as a 'bespoke ambient and jazz guitarist'...succeeded brilliantly...deploying his range of foot pedals to good effect to create ambient sound washes and a rich array of colours and textures". Ian Mann, reviewing the Gerard Cousins Project, Brecon Jazz Festival 2017,

  • The Jaw 2017

    The Jaw

    • Time: 9:30pm
    • Info: The Jaw are a never note perfect wit-punk three piece band from Brixton. One third harsh on the ear, two thirds easy on the eye, They sing/shout weird pop songs about such everyday subjects as finding and falling in love with decapitated human hands and the importance of keeping 'your eyes open when you fuck'. Performances from The Jaw often feature levels of boy-girl swordplay, radioactive makeup and skin on show some conservatives may find offensive. Amen. Having been together for 2 years, The Jaw have smashed the London gig scene. Ventures further afield include Brecon Fringe Festival and tours across the south of England. They have supported the infamous Daniel Wakeford as well as performing alongside Tankus the Henge and Flight Brigade. Pre-Jaw, Molly, Mae-Anne and Don Jon toured internationally with world renowned artists and theatre projects and consequently found each other through this network of artists and friends. The Jaw is an explosive artistic project that feeds the soul with its harmonies and challenges the norm with its lyrics. @TheJawband – Facebook and Twitter @TheJawmusic - Instagram www.soundcloud.com/thejawband

  • Moon Goose

    Moon Goose

    • Time: 8:45pm
    • Info: Space prog rock from the Black Mountains. Moon Goose has crawled out of the primal swamp and taken a good look around. The resulting bird has flapped madly around a barn with a load of guitars strapped to one wing and a synthesizer on the other, while it flies repeatedly into some drums. Made out of bits of comet and whalebone, the music that people are already calling ‘epic’ and ‘unlistenable’ throws a jagged beam of light in the growing darkness, to reveal some people using a barn as a giant amplifier. Duchamp put a toilet in an art gallery. Moon goose put music in a bag and shook it around until it was in bits, poured the bits out, and set fire to them. It’s the sound of a dragon colliding with an asteroid. If you enjoy things like gneiss, rare cheese, and strange ideas followed through to an illogical conclusion, you’ll love Moon Goose.
