KARMA FEST - PART IV
We are psyched to bring you the 4th instalment of the Karma All Day events.
Once again we will bring you a fine day of Live Bands, DJ's, Jams, Visual Art and Projections and more.
We aim to keep you all on your toes from 3pm until 3am.
To anyone who has heard the music of Kikagaku Moyo, it should come as no surprise that the band’s origins lie in hours upon hours of late-night jamming, illuminated by nothing more than the geometric patterns playing behind the band’s eyelids, resulting in a natural, free-floating sound, as of-the-earth as it is intergalactic. It may be surprising that the band sharpened their improvisational skills by busking on the streets of their native Tokyo. It may be surprising that the band’s overall sound may owe as much or more to the Incredible String Band as it does to Acid Mother’s Temple.
Doom-mongering behemoths of Psychedelic Rock formed in East Kilbride / Glasgow
TAU (Members of Dead Skeletons)
TAU is the new collective project formed by Shaun Mulrooney who has been a member of Dead Skeletons and invisible man with Berlin 'kraut' rockers Camera over the last 4 years. The music has been inspired by the shamanic experience and spending time with indigenous.
Garage/Psych from Paris (Fr)
Review from Loud & Quiet (Album Of The Week)
while distinctly in the camp of ‘retro’, manage to cast a wider net than most. The smooth rounded production nods as frequently to fifties RnR licks as it does the more honed, pristine sound of ‘golden age’ Bristish & American rock, whilst also taking in country tinged flavours of groups such as Big Star and the Flying Burrito Brothers.
VELVET MORNING (ROCKET SHIP TV)
Guitar based smooth psychedelia dealing with groove based rhythms, huge melodies and the exploration of far out sounds.
THE RHUBARB TRIANGLE
The Rhubarb Triangle is a an area between three towns in West Yorkshire famous for producing rhubarb….or in this case they are an experimental acid punk band based in London who are highly rated by Shindig! magazine.
Drawing influence from fuzzed out rock to North African desert blues to electronica to psych. There's a broad yet cohesive scope to Domesday Outfit
