Rude Mechanicals: The Rude Mechanicals often get compared to The Birthday Party/Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, The Tigerlilies, early Roxy and Syd Barrett. Their style has been called Post-Punk, Swamp Blues, Dark Cabaret with the word psychedelic often thrown in. We particularly liked a recent suggestion – Psycho Cabaret. Creating a sound that Tom Robinson (BBC6 Music) describes as “wild, wicked weirdness… a little bit Flying Lizards, a little bit Native Hipsters and a great deal like nothing you’ve heard before…”
7-Headed Raven: Three piece with guests… dark folk inspired by British and Latvian pagan traditions. Original songs mixed with old folk standards. 7-Headed Raven are: Tim Bowen (The Anchoress, Chromehoof) on cello, Catherine Gerbrands (Jowe Head’s Infernal Contraption, Mediaeval Babes, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders) on musical saw and hand drum and Latvian chanteuse and Kokle player Liene Rudziša.
