Sick Llama is the Michigan psychedelic noise punk solo project of Heath Moerland who is also the Fag Tapes label head. First recording released 12/03 on American Tapes with releases on Gods Of Tundra, Hanson Records, Chondritic Sound to follow. Heath opened for Wolf Eyes on their 2006 tour, played No Fun Festival in NYC and recently played Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival in Montreal with C. Spencer Yeh and Hive Mind. Established in 2004, Fag Tapes has put out over 250 releases and there’s no end in sight. Sick Llama uses tapes, clarinet, and whatever else is laying around to balance a fine line between composition and improvisation.
Last seen in Edinburgh supporting Nate Young’s Demons project back in 2010 with an absolutely killer set in Sneaky Pete’s, so don’t miss out!
One half of Edinburgh’s Hockyfrilla, amongst countless other collaborations and recording projects over the years. Rhian Thompson manipulates found objects, assorted gizmos and warped electronics to life - conjuring up a harsh and delicate experimental synergy.
Synth murk and DEEP analogue dearth from Grant Smith (Muscletusk) and Graham Stewart (about a million bands). Remember the time when Morricone homaged Carpenter’s minimal synths right after Carpenter asked him to do the soundtrack to The Thing back in ‘82? You get the picture.
Super last minute show!
£5 payable on the door - in the basement of the Safari Lounge in Abbeyhill.
