Well well well, it's finally here. After endless quantities of Dr. Oetker, St Cervois and other pillars of decadence, ENGINE are finally releasing their debut vinyl 'Cucumber Water'.
Come join us for a night of music, dance, live visuals, fine art and electrolytes at Hyde Park Book Club.
ENGINE will be performing live.
Entry is £5 OTD and the 'Cucumber Water' 12'' vinyl will be on sale for £10.
Tickets can be purchased for a slightly reduced price here:
“'Cucumber Water' is the culmination of four year's worth of psychedelicisms festering on ENGINE's part in Leeds. Synesthetic sounds looking to the future combine with introverted songwriting from a bygone era. Fresh yet strangely familiar, the tracks have been hot-housed, shelved, re-jigged, reworked and now will finally be released for your delectation. Executed with sincerity, clinicism and cynicism in equal parts, this is your opportunity to get your hands on it in tangible form. 150 copies will be available.”
With support from:
The Big Wheel
“Vibey late sixties and early seventies guitar bands are the backdrop of influences for new Leeds group The Big Wheel, who have just released their second single ‘Your Afternoon'.”
TYPE is a collection of humans, Lucy Cheesman, Laurie Johnson, and Ryan Kirkbride, that meet IRL and URL and enjoy exploring rhythmic music in a collaborative virtual space and generally making a lot of noise. We work collaboratively in a shared text buffer using software called Troop and each member of TYPE constructs portions of music-generating code before interacting with the work one another has left behind. By making and unmaking each other’s code TYPE works both together and against each other in the exploration of sound and rhythms.
Back to basic pop duo VIDE0 comprises song writing partners Brown and Garner (of bathymetry and prowles). Operating in Salford, this may come as a surprise, given the more whimsical guitar-focused sound of their previous band. However, in reality it's a logical progression to a more immediate, fully formed sound, expressed for the most part through sparkling synths and riff heavy bass accompanied by machine programmed beats and dual vocals. Comparisons to New Order may appear lazy, but there's a definite link here to the city's lineage of bass-driven synth pop and post-punk.
