Friday 27th September

Those who appeared (in no particular order):

Bread Shed and Tuck - Bread and Shed return to scaledown manor to astound you with their atmospherically charming and playful improvisation. Adding to the mix is Tuck AKA Dave Tucker a seasoned improviser who has worked alongside The Fall, John Edwards and Steve Noble to name but a few.

Jude Cowan Montague - Our very own Jude will take the scaledown stage, this time not to regale you with her usual news bites via Reuters, but to tantalise you with a set of charming songs based on her chums!.

Urban Flute - Scaledown is very happy to present to you Urban Flute-one woman, one flute, and a confection of sounds that will please and tease the ear. Totally improvised and totally compelling.

Frog Morris and Daren Callow - The performance poet and his musical compadre will try their musical and artistic tricks out on our sophisticated audience. Will the Camberwell Spaceman pierce us with his bright eyes, will he soothe us with his affectionate tribute to ducks? Frog Mania is about to be released in Fitzrovia.

Horseless Headmen - Jazz rubs shoulders with various branches of avant rock, a smattering of dub, and all points in between, as these purveyors of psychedelic skronk scale down for our pleasure and delight.

Smoo - The boys from 2:13TV return with their mixture of slap, tickle n' pop....both a visual feast and an audio treat, you will not be able to switch off!

Terry Edwards - ...and as we come into the home straight, it's screaming sax, screaming sax leading pocket trumpet blast, with skronking horn within sniffing distance, it looks like screaming sax all the way now, but no, who's this.... it's only bloody Mr Terry on Sartorial Edge galloping past to take the finish and begin Scaledown #92. phew...
