Unfortunately Rose has had to cancel her performance at this month's night of Special Sounds in Greenwich - but fear not, for in her stead we have the marvelous Bearcraft. Solo project of Dicky Moore, guitarist with Scritti Politti and Frank Sidebottom's band, Bearcraft combines an electro sound with a folk mythos: spectral synths, machine rhythms, with occult imagery and rural mysticism. Bearcraft's new ep, The Werewolf, will be released on September 21st by Hottwerk Records.
Also performing on the 23rd will be klezmer-influenced drone folkies, Laying on of Hands; trombonist, T-Toe; and Monster Bobby. Plus, there will be a quiz, a short lecture on the philosophy of Spinoza, and interval music supplied by Geoff Cheesemaster of Brighton-based electronic music collective, the Spirit of Gravity and Noteherder & McCloud; plus music journalist extraordinaire, Everett True (NME, Careless Talk Costs Lives, Plan B), who has even been blogging about the mixtape he's going to send us.
