Luo at Crash of Moons
26th October 2016
Superb music from beginning to end, with
- a heavy drone (analogue electronics) set from In Kit Form (someone called Chris Marsh from Canterbury who I was entirely unaware from, but who's go a huge amount of stuff up on his Bandcamp page)
- another magnificent set from Koloto (a.k.a. Maria Sullivan), local creator of exquisite, bejewelled organic glitchtronic wonders
- Luo!! Videos of them I'd seen showed a four piece (plus horns), but this was a leaner, more impressive trio (bass, keys/electronics and an unbelievable drummer).
Thanks as ever to Adam for all the effort he puts into getting these Crash of Moons events together. There was a pretty decent audience (and it was a deeply engaged audience), but he really needs to sell the place out every time just to break even. Where is everyone? This city is bristling with astonishing music like never before, has a student population of near 40,000 on top of the local one, so I just don't get it. Anyway, here are my eccentric alter ego Prof. Appleblossom's DJ sets from before/between/after acts, tailored (as ever) to make a continuous musical journey out of the night. That seemed to work this time.
