He co-founded the artist cooperative and net-label squib-box with Adam de la Cour and Federico Reuben. squib-box is my most unpredictable and dangerous live outlet. They have released around 30 albums by underground and radical artists they work with. As a curator and producer he has organised a number of events and festivals which reflect his interests in performance, collaboration, and questions of taste, including one-offs (with ARCO, squib etc), series (e.g. BASIC with Nonclassical), two collaborative art-music festivals with Sam Belinfante (Notations 2008, The Voice and Nothing More), and a couple of interactive family art and performance weekenders with Tate Britain. He also makes and presents radio, having produced several series and individual programmes for Resonance FM (Drivetime Underground). He made an hour long radiophonic quasi-music drama for BBC Radio 3 to follow the Last night of the proms, and has served as a guest co-presenter for the same stations Hear & Now show a number of times.
is a composer and performer and director based in London, interested in live performance, fallible bodies, the pathetic, theatre, the esoteric. His work often attempts to frame the act of music making as something curious, or weird, or useful, or spectacular in and of itself. He works with my own groups and others. He founded the experimental music theatre company ARCO. They have been making work for concert halls, galleries, publics, cities, broadcasters, festivals and ourselves nationally and internationally since 2008.
maya yianni
is a SE London-based artist that adopts a DIY approach to her work. Maya's sound is unapologetic and frank, drawing inspiration from the menial and meaningful moments of life. In her early years she was surrounded by her father's vast and eclectic record collection, which included musical gems from many genres - jazz, punk, soul... the list goes on - all of which have had a fragmental influence on Maya's work and sound.
Club Integral Midlands Branch welcomes Misty's Big Adventure to launch their new compilation 'The Young Person's Guide To Misty's Big Adventure' on Friday 13th September - lucky for us! Misty's Big Adventure are an eight piece band from Birmingham led by Grandmaster Gareth. They are not like the other groups. Their music is a joyous mix of pop, ska, jazz, indie, psychedelia, folk, punk, lounge etc. They do not kowtow to fashion and the music industrial estate. They are like if Abba had been weird. They do not have a good looking frontman. John Peel called Grandmaster Gareth "The New God". Noddy Holder, Gruff Rhys and Sir Patrick Moore have made guest appearances on their recordings. They have performed all over the UK, Germany, France, Holland, Poland and Lithuania. They have toured with The Zutons, The Magic Numbers, The Guillemots, Jeff Lewis, Kimya Dawson, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Dodgy, The Bluetones and 50 Foot Wave. They plough their own furrow and other music journalist cliches. Grandmaster Gareth has collaborated with Broadcast, Pram, Jeff Lewis, Kimya Dawson and appeared as a special guest for The Zutons on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2005. Then he went home. They have a dancing monster called Erotic Volvo. His only stage dive happened in Rudesheim, a small village in Germany. 10 Black Sabbath t-shirt wearing teenagers carried him around the room whilst the band played their third encore.
We also welcome DJ Andy Skank to play an eclectic vinyl mix of Afro, Disco, tropical rhythms and funky global grooves. The finest eats from Albert at Ubuntu Foods and Refreshments will also be available.

A review of his latest album “Cream Machine” “Sometimes, the beauty of art lies within the things you can’t grip or comprehend. Sometimes, music which plays with both familiar elements and progressive, experimental ideas can reach this special beauty with the tensions those two contrasts provide. It’s kind of a struggle sometimes, but if the artist can strike the right balance, there is symbiosis to achieve. Belgian-born and now Berlin-resident Manu Louis is such an artist. ” Everything is noise (U.K.) 'Kermesse Machine' is a mountain of plastic glasses in the streets the morning after, a tropical digital marching band, a guy giving all he’s got at Karaoke because there's nowhere left to sing, a gypsy virtuoso playing synth with a trumpet sound. Since 2015, he has performed solo more than 80 times everywhere in Europe and Asia accompanied by a crowd of electronic instruments and video projections. Manu also composes and performs for/with the 30-piece Orchestra Vivo and Fanfares. His past projects include Funk Sinatra and The Music for Gardens.
is a singer, performer and multi- instrumentalist from Lisbon, based in Porto. She performs solo and sometimes collaboratively an unusual repertoire of songs in over ten languages, as well as original compositions and soundtracks. From time to time, she receives insight from cartoon personalities in her dreams (such as Bugs Bunny) on how to conduct her career.
