With Dan's guitar there is a lot of play about on the neck which you would expect with a man in love with dracula. Ghoulies compatriot and Bristol folk secret Jim Evans will join the creature on guitar. -------------------------------------------------------- Liz Kearton (multi instrumentalist of Hmnahmna) http://soundcloud.com/liz-kearton Singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. A long-time primitive in the recording stakes which makes for interesting effects. Currently working on an album which ties together the problems of medicalization, existential theories and the film career and personal life of Peter Sellers. Working title “Peter Sellers as thematic device”. And selflessly devoted to bringing about the end of biopsychiatry. ---------------------------------------------------- Jo Cooksley (Yamaha laced musical comic) o Cooksley lives in Bristol with a Yamaha keyboard and a 15 year old Falcon bicycle. If Julia Davis, Andy Kaufman and Ted Chippington met her, they'd love her like a daughter. Expect to be bedazzled with audience-led songs, dark whimsy and remember, even if you don't get it, her legs are alright to look at. "Jo is an extraordinary act. I can't decide whether it's sheer laziness or downright genius"-Rob Coleman

“Brilliantly unhinged music: idiosyncratic, shambolic, fabulously raw and direct, like Beck sparring with Mark E. Smith.” ”
