26th October 2007
Those who performed (listed in performance order):
Steve Beresford and Ian Smith - Steve Beresford, a veteran of the improvisational circuit and consummate experimentalist musician, teams up with Ian Smith, superb trumpeter who has worked with other luminaries such as Evan Parker and Lol Coxhill.
Harry "Pete" Peters - He reliably informs us, he is "Uncool for Cats". Other than that, we know very little about him.
Riotlounge - Having previously appeared at Scaledown as Acoustic Lounge - the scaled down incarnation of Riotlounge - Julian Simons returns with an even more acaled down line-up (just him, his guitar and a laptop) and a more minimal take on his atmospherically brittle songwriting.
Chubby Nest - Eclectic, quirky and (some times) unsettling songs.
Glistening Cogs Of Greenland - Their myspace site claims their influences as 'A weirdness flattening the seagrass' and their sound like 'A bucolic walk; taken despite a nail in shoe'. Sit back and savour sounds from lap steel, violin, moog, and effects.
Tony English - Tony appeared at July's Scaledown rattling the traps for Pat Whelan. We welcome him back for a solo performance.
NOW - 'Catchy, contemporary, inventive, exotic, melodious and harmonious 21st century pop music', NOW will be scaling down their set and act for this event.
