The Orchestra Pit




The April clouds cry over London town. Wipe your eyes, sad clouds. Get Happy! Another scaledown extravaganza looms... nearer... nearer. This Friday 27th April at 7 of the clock in the evening, we at scaledown bring to you, in no particular order...

The Windsors - last month was the welcome return of Scaledown's favourite music royalty, and this month is the welcome return of the return of the same band. we felt there was some unfinished business after last month's show and with a hostile section of the crowd demanding "back next month, back next month...", we felt it was our duty to acquiesce. so let's ride that surf one more time fellas...

The Children Of The Acrylic Flowers - the shared musical project of Elisa Gallo Rosso (vocals) and Alex Monk (guitar/ casio and efffects.) The pair came together after Gallo Rosso lent her 'astonishing voice' (so says Penny Black Music) to Monk's acclaimed double album 'The Safety Machine' and during those sessions they discovered a shared love of improvisation, shamanism and the unconscious in their performances.

Raf and O - scaledown sees the welcome return of Raf Mantelli and Richard Smith who last graced the boards of scaledown in July 2010. We look forward again to hearing their blend of electronica and beautiful vocals grace our little venue.

The Reactor Core Is Splendid - Simon Williams' alter ego last played scaledown in May 2010. Another to enter the 'welcome return' hall of scaledown fame, Mr W will astound with his guitar looping and general electrickery loopiness.

Otto Kristoffersen - You will hear fifteen minutes from a 'Swedish Eskimo who sleeps in McDonalds and night buses. He works in Yo Sushi and has gags about his favourite band, Depeche Mode'....

Jude Cowan - Ms Cowan has a residency at scaledown, executing 5 to 10 minute 'takes on the week' converting news from Reuters to music and voice. Here she does the same but as a guest so she will scale up to 15 minutes for scaledown and who knows what will happen....

So dry those April eyes and smile because it is FREE and you don’t get much of a chance to hear bloody good music for nowt in this age of austerity.

The Orchestra Pit rubs itself up the right way in acknowledgment of the glow of your continuous loyalty.
