Special guests include the return of Charlie ‘Hamac’ Harmer as well as Ben ‘Big Boy’ Fulton and Kurt ‘Choc’ Yates on guitars. Professor Dynamite & The Banditos will also be performing a collection of instrumental tracks showcasing their sonic subtlety, electric soundscapes, funky beats and soulful spontaneity.
The gig kicks off at 5pm with a troupe of singer/songwriters including Sarah Wiig, Jackson, and Hamish. Dj Doctor of the Akina Vinyl Appreciation Society will be keeping the in-between sets pumping all night long with the odd Bandito lining up for a bit of two for two action on the turntables.
Come celebrate whats been an epic year and welcome in the new year with a boogie and a bang!
The Revolutionary Arts Ensemble is a music/art project that sets itself unusual tasks and presents the weird results to whomever has the ears and eyes to digest the ensuing brew.
The Ensemble has grown out of a band which was called Thing, until we found out a few years ago that there is of course another band already with this name, and strangely enough doing not a dissimilar ‘thing’ to us. Under the Thing name the band recorded ‘Thing vs Albert Ayler’ in about 2005, which was four songs, we might release this after the Gordons project is finished.
Our first task as the ensemble was to interpret the Gordons legendary first self titled EP.The project was to limited to a couple of gigs, video and a studio recording of the result.
