Sartorial Scaledown


The Orchestra Pit


Greetings Orchestra Pit and Scaledown mailing list subscribers, we would just like to take a small chunk of your time to inform you of the latest in the line of Scaledown Live Performance Events. It is due to occur this coming Friday (30th October) at the King & Queen (1 Foley Street, W1W 6DL) from 7pm and, as usual, entrance is free.

This month we are presenting Scaledown in association with Terry Edwards who has selected three acts from his Sartorial Records stable to perform on the evening in question.

Performing at the fifty fifth Scaledown will be (in no particular order):

Terry Edwards & Simon Charterton - Terry Edwards plays sax & pocket trumpet in his own inimitable way over the New Orleans-inspired grooves of Zook/Higsons funky drummer Simon Charterton.

Bob Constant & The Goodbye Horses - A bruised and batty form of soul music lurks beneath the 'motor town condensed into a garage' sound of this charmingly askew 3 piece.

Watson, Marsh and May - Acoustic improvisational trio.

Micko Westmoreland - A subtle cocktail of unpleasant emotions, betrayal, jealousy, abandonment and unrequited love. Phrase songs with machines.

Damp Matchbox - Scaledown's Mark Braby will be joined by Timothy C Holehouse, Alex Monk and Subway Sect's Kevin Younger. Together, they will perform a free improvisation based around the folk song 'Hard Times Of Old England'.

Iris Garrelfs - A welcome return for ambient electronica artist Ms Garrelfs who will be performing 'live and in mono'. Expect an atmospheric performance!

Full details (including a handy map and a tasteful poster) can be viewed on the Scaledown page of our website. The Orchestra Pit thanks you for your continuing support.
