BLACK SUN: Bolide,Hexenverfolgu ng,PCP,Max Le Cain -SAT

We’re celebrating the bank holiday/summer/being alive with a visit from our favourite freaks, Bolide! And, they’re bringing chums along for the trip! We’ll be taking over the Triskel’s TDC for a night of wild outness, free, joyful, unhinged improvisation and super8 brutality…

Lunar phase on Saturday 2nd June 2012 is Waxing Gibbous. Come join our heroes as they escape from the British Isles’ pack of Jubilee cock-eyed mouthbreathers and welcome them to the southern streets of Cork City, where the paths are paved with Beamish and Lennox’s.

You can expect sets from Bolide (UK), Hexenverfolgung (UK), a super-8 tape/film piece from Maximilian Le Cain and the bauld PCP!! (Phil Collins Project)
Also, you guys remember Daniel Spicer’s (The Mystery Lesson/ Bolide /The Wire journo) killer set in Gulpd during last year’s Avant festival? The time he sent local rugger buggers scampering to the hills armed only with his heart-bursting free-jazz collection?) well, I think Spiceberg and F. Ampism are gonna join up for some cosmic tag-team DJing, along with your regular Black Sun DJs (myself and the beard)

“Gonzo free music and guerrilla jazz from this drug and ale gorged Brighton sextet. A lot of reeds, tapes, percussion, vocal hollerin’ and the likes all captured in mysterious crud-fidelity. Come and enjoy this unseasoned brew.”
Dylan Nyoukis of Chocolate Monk on ‘The Authority of Omar.’

“As a launching pad to tomorrow, free jazz remains one of the most potent, if hermetic, of conceptual formulas due to its foregrounding of the spontaneous, its focus on exploration as opposed to mere tourism. In recent years players from the more traditionally omnivorous disciplines of drone, psychedelia and noise music have combined to broker a rapprochement with the form, mostly focussed on its harnessing of energy as a structural solvent – groups like Michigan’s Graveyards, New York’s Owl Xounds, Brighton’s Bolide.”
David Keenan, The Wire, November 2008.


Max le Cain’s Super-8 piece Dark, Plastic, Reversal

Described as “a terrorist action performed on a piece of celluloid”, Maximilian Le Cain’s Super-8 film/tape DARK, PLASTIC, REVERSAL envelops viewers in thick plastic darkness rythmically shattered by flashes of the scratched, slashed, scribbled-on remnants of what might once have been images. This “suicide cinema” squeezes out the basic, brutal beauty of a dying medium…



Our favourite messers (Kev First Blood Part II and Paul from SAFE) have just returned from a one stop tour of Frankfurt and are ready to confound folks with their shambolic and compelling Phil Collins Project. The best kind of wrong.



"Daniel Spicer is a writer based in Brighton, UK. He is a regular contributor to The Wire and Jazzwise magazines and has published work in The Guardian, The Independent, BBC Music Online, Signal To Noise, Plan B, Rock-A-Rolla and elsewhere. He presents a weekly radio show, ‘The Mystery Lesson’, on Brighton’s Radio Reverb FM, playing new releases in avant-garde improvised music. He also performs in the chaotic Brighton-based electro-acoustic improvising sextet, Bolide.

If you want brain-scouring, white-of-the-eyes, free-splurge-n-skronk, there’s no need to constantly revisit the classic albums of the 60s New Thing or 70s Loft Scene (fine as they are). As I try to show on my radio show, The Mystery Lesson, there’s plenty of monstrously heavy new stuff being released right now. So, here’s a list of five scorching albums released in the 21st century."

So delighted to be having Dan back again. His set during last year's Avant blew the roof off the place. At one stage, during a pretty heavy track, he whipped out a tiny reed instrument and began to play along with the record. The intensity in the room ramped up a notch instantly!!

"Last time I DJ’d in Cork, at Gulpd café, this was used to chase out some bar-hogging local rugby players and WAGS."
