(Friday 29th May 2015)
May Queen goes to the shop, buys a plastic messenger bag, goes home, fills it up with maypole assembly kit, then, with aplomb, sets it up for scaledown. Magically, each ribbon becomes an artist in no particular order:
ROSHI FEAT. PARS RADIO - If Scaledown issued reward points then is highly possible that neither Roshi Nasehi nor Graham 'Dids' Dowdall would ever need to pay for a drink in this town again. As it is we don't..... but they're back anyway to stamp their own mark on May Scaledown with their beguiling mix of sensual vocals and ingenious beats.
BETTINA SCHROEDER & JAMES A SMITH - both artful and playful, Bettina and James combine sonics and couplets in a wonderfully winning way, which will have you beaming fully. oh joy....
PAULINE SEWARDS - Sensitive, insightful poet, maybe introducing you to 'the befuddled parts of your body' or the 'art of nostalgic conversation'.
ASHLEIGH MARSH - Dynamic and marvellous - skateboard queen, nerd and experimental musician/composer/artist.
TIM SMART - Amusing songs, improvised by kooky Tim - he's also a brilliant illustrator (irrelevant but true).
ALI WARNER AND MATT SCOTT - A wonderful combination of accordion and vocal, both of the experimental kind, both bloody brilliant
