Friday 27th February

Those who performed at the 48th Scaledown (in performance order):

Sean Redmond - Folk-pop troubadour with surreal tales of love & politics.

Magnus Spectrum - "Magnus Spectrum is Richard Thomas' alter ego. He is possibly Swedish and has a taste for strange clothing. He performs on synthesizer, using consumer goods as wireless controllers" so says Mr Spectrum's Facebook. And his personal interest is Orange an' all.

2SquareWhy? - Masonic corporate rock of a variety that your deceased great aunt's best friend could enjoy. Carefully crafted to leave the smallest of boot prints in the listening mind, 2SquareWhy? will take you forward, back to the things you thought you'd left behind.

Gareth Mitchell - Last played at Scaledown in August 2007, Mr Mitchell returns to perform more experimental takes on his songs using effects and loops.

The Fujii - Duo comprising former welder & self-taught bottleneck guitarist Koichi "Fuji" Fujishima and master of the pocket trumpet Paul Shearsmith.
