Californian singer-songwriter Art Terry brings gospel-fired psychedelic funk to a subject that preoccupies us up to 388 times a day: sex. Playful, passionate, and tragi-comic by turns, the Sex Madness album embodies an appeal for loving understanding. Art’s raw personal lyrics about modern love and making out have a lush backdrop in his masterly piano riffs: brilliantly dense orchestration includes vibraphone, viola, trombone; and complex harmonies add tpo the rich mix of this idiosyncratic yet universal song cycle. Art will be bringing the Sex Madness Orchestra to Iklectik – percussionist JT Taylor, flautist Rosanna Ter-Berg, with Miss Hypnotique on theremin, and vocalist Kayo Anostike.
Rita Braga is a Portuguese songstress who simultaneously summons the ghosts of synth pioneers such as Delia Derbyshire and Bruce Haack as well as that of eccentric performers like Vivian Stanshall and Carmen Miranda. Rita Braga’s universe is one of colours, exuding both the charm of a vintage cartoon character merrily bouncing along and the ominous melancholy of a lost kitten on a rooftop. She will be introducing her new album “Bird on the Moon” http://www.superbraguita.com
Eugene Coyne’s history includes writing and playing for his father Kevin Coyne & others, plus a clutch of EPs with his brother Robert in Silver Chapter and Mean Vincent. He has recorded four solo albums, including his recent LP Castle Coyne and has new recordings in the pipeline.
Swordfish Swordfish are an improvising quartet. Their high energy, freewheeling approach mashes elements of jazz, prog, dub, noise and abstract electronica into an (almost) danceable stew. Originally put together by the late, great Simon King, the band now consists of Karl Blake (guitar), Chris Cornetto (trumpet, electronics), Peter Marsh (bass) and Tom Clarke (drums).
Flame Proof Moth started life as The Boycott Coca-Cola Experience in 2006. A constant on the fringe of the South London Music Scene, FPM is known for an eccentric approach to the blues, Ivor Cutler meets R.L. Burnside and the conversation is brief and to the point. A regular on London’s Resonance FM, in recent years has been seen opening for Fat White Family at Glastonbury and busking waist deep in the Thames at Bankside. New album The Very, Very, Very Best Of.. featuring one man band legend Lewis Floyd Henry on drums out soon.
Apathy Band LP ~ featuring Bob and Roberta Smith, Jessica Voorsanger, Leonardo Ulian, George Lionel Barker, George Cleghorn and Calvin Tsai. The Apathy Band is the brainchild of contemporary artist Bob and Roberta Smith. The band has had many incarnations but this version has the experimental funk fusion sounds that George Cleghorn brings with saxophone, Calvin Tsai brings with his guitar, George Lionel Barker (also known from The Fucks) on piano, Leonardo Ulian on the Theremin and Jessica Voorsanger on spoken word.
Ask The White is Isobel Blank (Ant Lion, Isobi, Vestfalia), artist and songwriter, and Simone Lanari (Ant Lion, Walden Waltz, Sycamore Age), producer and composer. Their first album together “Sum and subtraction” has been released on the 12th October 2018 on LP by Ammiratore Omonimo Records (AOR), a label created and managed in Rome by vonneumann. The album will then be released on CD in Japan in 2019 for Athor Harmonics, Kenichi Mori’s label and music production studio based in Tokyo. Their music is deeply rooted in the folk tradition, but at the same time is open to the wildest contamination, offering a sophisticated sonic palette. Ask The White’s songs are marked by dense and minimal guitar fingerpicking, intertwined with electronics and electroacoustic elements. Intimate lyrical melodies cyclically evolve into two voices harmonies, as arrangements expand and develop dynamically creating extremely pleasurable gems.
PsychoYogi – The music is a diverse mixture of instrumental colours, melodies, and words. The songs present social and political critique alongside personal moments and moods. In the words of Mike O’Toole (Beat Magazine) “Their sound is unparalleled and cannot be categorised. It is a rejection of docile adherence to a single musical style”. PsychoYogi are based in london and have been together for around three years with the current line up, which includes, Chris Ramsing, Guitar and vocals, Chris Sansom, Bass and vocals and Arnold Lane, Drums. The music is both challenging and accessible and is influenced by many musicians and composers including Frank Zappa, King Crimson, XTC, Captain Beefheart, Gentle Giant, Bach, Bartok and many more.

The members are Beth, Bird, Hamish and Oli, and between them they play guitar, clarinet, banjo, drums, saxophone and coffee cup. http://thenaturecentre.com/
Also joining us is the wonderful psychedelic noise dream pop drone songstress bell lungs. An experimental vocalist and multi- instrumentalist from Scotland, she responds to and reflects the fractured world we live in. Her performances incorporate mellotron swirls, shrieks and whoops, layered harmonies, baroque pop feels, drone, field recordings and noisebox mayhem. Bell Lungs creates meditative journeys through sound, centred around a voice David Keenan deemed “elemental” in The Wire. https://bell-lungs.com/
Looking forward to avantgarde lo-fi experimental art pop poetry from Raiments, a Berlin-based avant garde musical collective, brainchild of lead vocalist and multi- instrumentalist Mano Camatsos. Mano’s unorthodox electric guitar style is inspired by hip hop, ethnological recordings and contemporary classical music. His abstract lyrics meet an ever rotating procession of strings, woodwinds, brass and electronics with a pleasing groove. https://raiments.bandcamp.com/album/in- painting
Very excited to welcome back The Nature Centre, who sit somewhere between punk, folk, prog, and The Bull Ring. The band plays three-minute pop songs, stuffed with ideas like a suitcase packed too late. The members are Beth, Bird, Hamish and Oli, and between them they play guitar, clarinet, banjo, drums, saxophone and coffee cup.
