Friday 25th September

Those who performed at the fifty forth Scaledown (in no particular order):

The Piper's Son - Offbeat melodicism mixed with a treasure trove of musical plucks, plings and other t'ings.

Lunar Simian - A rare opportunity to indulge the Moon Monkey with your ears while he delivers spaced out soundscapes generated from his bizarre collection of mouth clangers.

Whiteoak - Atmospheric other-worldly vocals float over shimmering guitar scapes and shapes.

Atomico - Being influenced by jazz, classical and techno music, Lucien Doest a.k.a 'Atomico' explores these styles to combine them into organic melodic rhythmic soundscapes.

Monster Bobby - Making a welcome return to Scaledown, the Pipettes guitarist and chief songwriter will perform "tear rendering vignettes and dazzling electronic dreamscapes" - Drowned in Sound.

Ronnie Fraser Munroe - The inimitable Mr Munroe will appear as Sir Montague Bassoon. Your guess is as good as ours. However, if his "Audiophonic Musics" track on Scaledown's very own promotional CD "Scaledown Vol 1" is anything to go by, be sure to have a guess which is as good as ours.
