A fundraiser for No More Durty Water featuring 4 bands and 4 visual artists to provide clean drinking water in the district of Malda, West Bengal, India, of which is severely arsenic polluted. we want to buy a water filtration unit, which filters out the arsenic and iron and supplies clean drinking water for 500 people. These units currently come to approximately £ 1.810 and will be installed by local charity Calcutta Rescue (registered charity no. 290197).
An amazing line up not to be missed! Brighton based trio Oh! Captain will treat you to an intense trip along the lines of At the Drive-In and Mars Volta (Drive-In at Mars), long time lovers of walls of sound Carmen Rosa will hypnotise you with their driving guitar work and funky bass lines, and fresh back from tour, Kassassin Street has blown life into krautrock again through a big reed of psychedelia. And then, not only will these three bands blow you off your rocker, but the mighty Black Market Karma are rolling in their huge sound from London to send you into space!
The visual aspect is going to be immense. The one and only Cassettelord will be conducting live art on the night, and there is an original cassette-piece to be won (drawn from the number on your tickets, so don’t lose it!). El Wenche Winlove is showing a supreme collection of her animation films on a big screen in the breaks between bands, drive-in cinema style, and Partial Facsimile has promised a mixed media tactile installation. If this wasn’t enough to stimulate you watchers, Atomsphere are planning a cymascopic approach to band visuals!
We have also been informed that Captain O’Dave of Carmen Rosa has some artwork for us to hang, but it will remain a secret until the night.
