A couple of things worth hyping

Posted: September 5th, 2004, by Chris H

Diskant’s favourite musical wankfest Instal is happening a bit earlier and over 2 days this year (16th & 17th October). There might be a noisy day and a trancey day. One day there’s Keiji Haino and Derek Bailey, the other’s Charlemagne Palestine, Current 93 and Six Organs of Admittance. Admittedly I don’t know a huge amount about (most / all) the acts but that’s never stopped it being great before.

And this Saturday (11th) at Stereo, el Hombre Trajeado are playing with The Dragon Rapide from Leeds. I saw them in Newcastle a while back and they were dead good I would being going to see them if I was in Glasgow.

Chris was hit by a brick as a child and lost the popular culture part of his brain. This affliction means he is only able to listen to obscure japanese noise bands and watch films with overtly complex storylines. His other interests include skulking, editing documents, taunting policemen and entering undecipherable handwriting contests. He lives in an enormous underground laboratory where he spends many hours trying to un-invent television.
