Friday 28th November


Performing at Scaledown number 46 (in no particular order):

The Richwoods - Naked pyrotechnic exploding ukulele originals from this trio, who will in fact be scaling up to a quintet for this appearance.

Timothy C Holehouse - The latest subtly shifting eponymous incarnation of Mr Holehouse. When asked to describe his act in three word he came up with the following: noise, drone, weird. Excellent.

Glistening Cogs Of Greenland - A welcome return to Scaledown for this experimental combo which offers smatterings of moog, dictaphone, and oddness.

Jail - Another act from the 'welcome return' department; Jail serve up punk pop a la Pavement and Half Man Half Biscuit. Fronted, as always, by the boisterous Mr Jon Leone.

The Devil - Let's face it. All the acts are making welcome returns tonight and this act is no exception. The Devil are James Sedwards (Nought) on guitar and bass, The Rebel (Country Teasers) on guitar, synth, bass, and vocals, and Sophie P from Wet Dog on the drums.

Richard Sanderson - Erstwhile Scaledown co-founder/curator returns for a solo performance "looking back at some of the many songs performed over the 30 years of his spectacularly unsuccessful music career".

Photos of this event will be posted soon...
