Friday 25th January

Those who performed (in no particular order):

Bad Moth - Fresh from their comeback tour of Sardinia in May 2012 (well quite fresh) Bad Moth will sing to us of rainbows, pies and bus stops with violin and accordion. Enjoy a flutter.

Steve Moyes - Steve Moyes will improvise with a rectangular cello, or a guitar shaped guitar, or whatever else he decides to bring along. It probably won't be pretty, but it might be.

Rosie Okae - ah Rosie, we are very delighted to have you back, with your beguiling, catchy experimental pop songs and sweet delivery thereof, and backed by Justin Paton (from Now), how splendid!

Benedict Taylor - from the Barbican to the King & Queen, give this man a stage, or indeed some carpet, and he shall perform, what precisely I do not know, but that's all part of the excitement.

Adrian Northover - Adrian makes a welcome return bringing his unusual saxophonic blasts to the floor once more.

Foulkestone - Another glorious return of Scaledown's favourite electronic experimental folksters. Blip with your finger in your ear!

The James Worse Public Address Method - Big on beard and verse, Mr Worse uses the nonsensical to convey his message. Words that are good enough to eat.
