Friday 20th July from 8 o'clock til late at The Edge, Digbeth, Birmingham. Limited tickets available, £12 in advance, booking recommended: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/444335 PRAM’S new album arrives 11 years after its acclaimed predecessor, The Moving Frontier. The time has been well spent and the new LP is a celebration of their unique musicality, focused into a beautifully constructed and tautly produced soundworld. The band use a bewildering array of instruments, unrepentantly unfazed by the possibilities of performing on anything and everything that seems appropriate. Newcomers to Pram will find a richly detailed collage of influences ranging from exotica, Krautrock and the forgotten film soundtracks that went on to inspire contemporaries Stereolab and Broadcast. The only band in the world not to have a website, yet the world of Pram is immersed in visual imagery. They will be joined by long time collaborator and film-maker Scott Johnston (Film Ficciones), projecting visual delights to accompany these long-awaited sounds! "Pram's immediately identifiable music is some of the most original and intriguing of the last two decades" - Keith Moliné, The Wire http://www.dominorecordco.com/artists/pram/ GRANDMASTER GARETH, known for his work as bandleader, composer and front man with Misty's Big Adventure, is a dog painting collector and liability. He separates the wheat from the chaff. He keeps the chaff. His music is a mix of every record you've heard or never heard. He forgot your chocolate and spent your pound.  He has PayPal account. "The new God" - John Peel https://grandmastergareth.bandcamp.com And we are very happy to be welcoming back ED DOWIE! Formerly of Brothers in Sound, Ed spent several years composing music for short films and theatre projects. He is now signed as a solo artist with Lost Map Records, who released his debut album, The Uncle Sold in January 2017. His music is regularly heard on BBC6 Music and BBC Radio 3's Late Junction, which included The Uncle Sold in their Top Albums of 2017. “accomplished, bold and starry-eyed visionary” - The Quietus https://eddowie.bandcamp.com/ KLUB CATUSI will also be making a rare appearance, playing tunes beyond midnight and the meridian. UBUNTU FOODS will be selling the finest South African nosh, with reasonably priced beverages on sale too.
