"Like a careening, uncontainable torrent of Buckfast-powered kosmische chaos,
whatever your feelings towards the Scottish quartet's synth-washed space-jams on record,
their performance is something like having Ken Kesey and Spacemen 3 pour Irn-Bru
directly into your third eye."
- The Quietus

"The Cosmic Dead may hail from Glasgow but their music sounds
as if it were created in another universe altogether"

MARK MORGAN, guitarra y cantante de los neoyorkinos SIGHTINGS va estar girando en Europa presentando su disco en solitario. Si bien Sightings redifinieron el sonido de esa escena creada en Nueva York a principios de los 80s llamada noise no wave (DNA, Mars, y muchos mas) Mark Morgan en solitario continua por la misma senda en cuyo primer trabajo en solitario da rienda suelta a su particular sonido de guitarra.

Jueves 8 de Noviembre, Festival MEM, Bilbao
Viernes 9 de Noviembre, Bonberenea, Tolosa
Sabado 10 de Noviembre, Magia Roja HQ, Barcelona


y aqui el texto promocional escrito por Julie Cafritz de Pussy Galore:
I was first introduced to the concept of Mark Charles Morgan by Thurston Moore in a series of conversations that all went something like this: TM: Dude, Sightings is coming to town. You should check them out. I think you’d really dig the them. And you’d love Mark; he’s hilarious. Me: un-huh TM: No, really. Me: When and Where? I’ll try to make it. TM: They’re playing Friday at…. At which point, I’d nod politely, internally shutting down, or just walk away, while he was mid-sentence. This went on for approximately seven years. Until in 2012, I finally caught Sightings at the local American Legion hall. As I walked through the doors for the first time, the following checklist went through my head: Incredibly depressing venue: check A bar you can still smoke at because it’s technically a private club: check. Rummy regulars at said bar with absolutely no interest in the music in the other room: check. Large open room with sparse crowd: check (I’m being generous if I estimate 20 people in attendance). “Oh great,” I thought, “Not technically a basement noise show but might as well be. At least there’s a bar.” Then Sightings started. And much to my surprise, they were not some horrible and boring noise improv shit. Sightings had songs. Mark’s guitar growled, and he snarled. Or maybe it was the other way around. No matter, I did DIG them. They were great! Which would all make them sleeping on the floor in my tv room significantly less awkward, thank god. The next morning, I could genuinely gush about how much I liked them, in between bouts of mercilessly making fun of how many pedals Mark used. Which all brings me to Mark “Man Crush” Morgan’s 2018 solo effort Department of Heraldry that you now hold in your hot little hands. To say I was a little leery of what was obviously some of that aforementioned “noise improv shit” is an understatement. My heart sank when I spotted a ten minute “composition”. Oh fuck, there are two of them. This was going to be a hard sell. Not to you necessarily, but to me. I’m not some slight of build guy with stooped shoulders, wearing a dirty beige Lightning Bolt t-shirt with a John Fahey record tucked under his arm. The thing is though is that Mark has always had this really great guitar sound, only partly courtesy of all those shitty pedals he insists on using. He’s not coming at this from a Pharoah Sanders-worshipping, free jazz-loving, sensibility. Rather, I hear his home town, Detroit. The record is scuzzy, and raw-sounding, punctuated with moments of utter desolation. Moments build, only to collapse again. There are even funky grooves but, of course, they fall apart. It’s fucking great. Dude, you should check it out!

TONER LOW European Stoner-doom classics for first time in Finland.

Hollantilainen pitkän linjan Stoner/Doom-trio Toner Low saapuu ensimmäistä kertaa Suomeen tänä syksynä! Yhtye juhlistaa 20-vuotista taivaltaan käymällä muutamissa maissa, missä bändiä ei ole aiemmin nähty. Uransa aikana Toner Low on julkaissut kolme pitkäsoittoa ja lukuisan määrän pikkulevyjä, joiden materiaalia tullaan kattavasti keikoilla kuulemaan.

Lauteet Alankomaalaisille lämmittää kotimainen Kaiser, joka julkaisi lujasti hehkutetun ja lähes loppuumyydyn debyyttinsä Saksalaisen Oak Island Recordsin toimesta. Semifinalin keikka on samalla albumin levynjulkkarit, joten tästä ei paljon Stonerikinkerit tässä maassa parane!

Tampereen keikalla mukana on myös Helsinkiläinen grunge-orkesteri Scarlet, joka on parhaillaan työstämässä debyyttilevyään. Turussa illan avaa paikallinen I, Captain.
