Friday 29th January 2010

Those who appeared to the delight of many (in no particular order):

Dear Thief - A most excellent band who have been described thusly "Delightfully quirky and skewed guitar pop played with aplomb by a tight trio" which sums them up nicely. Definitely a good start to 2010.

Arklove - Enjoy a bit of post rock/punk jazz/classical fusion from this combo who construct sax led instrumentals interspersed with improvisation.

NOW - Once more the delightful NOW bring their quirky and eclectiv brand of neo pop to Scaledown replete with antique synthesisers, battered old guitars and quite possibly a cello.

Rory Tregaskis - Rory played at scaledown in a previous incarnation known as Black Cat Bones. Mr Tregaskis is the Syd Barratt of the 21st Century urban world. Elements of deep south blues mingle with abrasive folk.

Alex Monk - Alex Monk has become a regular at scaledown. We welcome his atmospheric loop orientated experiments in sound and songsmith to this new scaledown year!with improvisation.

John Zonn - The return of the excellent Mr Zonn, who has been described as "...half stand-up, half poetry, half music..."
