Auto Da Fe

California's fantastic freak-drone-pop ensemble, AUTO DA FE are playing their their first-ever non-USA shows. Auto Da Fe was formed in 2000 in Pomona, CA by Martin Kvisvic (Amps For Christ) and Tara Tavi (Amps For Christ, Soddamn Inssein, Aye Aye Captain [with Dame Darcy], Blue Silk Sutures and ThunderSnail). Pan-global instrumentation includes yang qin, guzheng, tambur, bouzouki, tablas, wood marimba, balalaika, handmade electric zithers, Gothic harp, Chinese banjo, Tibetan temple cymbals and bells as well as traditional guitar, bass, trumpet, and drums. Debut album "The Spectre" spans a wide range of sounds from trad-flavored freak-folk to Middle Eastern raga to 80's gothic minimalist rock and is released on SECRET EYE RECORDS, the folks who organized the Terrastock. Imagine Joy Division and The Pentangle playing a bunch of weirdo instruments from the Smithsonian basement - topped off with Tara's lovely vocals! Fans of Amps For Christ will revel in its unique beauty.



Mickel Mass

Mickel Mass are a loose collective of musicians from, centred round Mike Napier and Andy Da Kipp. All shows are improvised, and experiment with found sounds, electronica, smatterings of folk, jazz and occasionally humour.

They have often headlined locally, and have played as part of Damo Suzuki's Network, and supporting Faust. They are actively seeking someone to release the album they recorded in January for a label which died in March!

Sounds like Peasmeal brose dripping onto a theremin, deep in a seaside cave.


Welfare Mothers

Featuring the combined country/surf talents of Kevin Allan (sings, plays guitar) and John Hekert (lead/slide guitar.
