TUSK Music Presents

TUSK Festival 2016

October 14-16

TUSK FRINGE

Dark Tusk Poster

TUSK swells out beautifully and has to slip a belt notch thanks to major fringe action at the Old Police House and the Soundroom – two major micro-hubs of Gateshead noise/skronk activities within walking distance of Sage.

Friday 11.30-pm-2.30am
The Old Police House, Swinburne Place, Gateshead, NE8 1AX

Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects – World Is Sudden: Part II
with guests: Eleanor Wright, Mia la Metta, Sarah Kenchington, Susie Green & Simon Bayliss, Dane Law and Cheryl Donegan
11.30pm – 02.30am

www.circaprojects.org

Inspired by the collateral, incompatible and sudden world described in Louis MacNiece’s 1935 poem Snow: this event combines performance, music, sound, moving image, internet video phenomena and archival material. Staged in a custom-made set, artworks are presented in a continuous flow resisting the tyranny of prescribed thematics; embracing “the drunkenness of things being various.

BYOB. Free entry, donations welcomed.

Saturday 2-5pm
The Soundroom, Cuthbert Street, Gateshead, NE8 1PH. 15 min walk from Sage Gateshead.

With the arrival of Miguel Perez in the UK to perform as Skull Mask at Tusk, it would be unthinkable to let him escape back to Mexico without congregating with some of his closest conspirators from the Northern noise void.

Culver & La Mancha del Pecado: with six collaborations to date and numerous splits and joints amassed, a live collaboration between these 2 horror drone obsessives was inevitable…

Midwich: one of Miguel’s most ardent advocates via his Radio Free Midwich blog, this is a mega-rare live performance from Rob Hayler’s solo electronic machine-dream.

NeckvsThroat: an ongoing postal duo of Miguel and Yol, binding guitar and voice with barbed wire and discarded steel.

Xazzaz: sinkhole drones, guitar fog and harsh dives from darkest Northumberland.

Plus:
AMPLIFIER:WORSHIP installation by MP Wood exploring the idea of the studio as a ritual environment.

Free with TUSK pass, £3 without.

Saturday 11pm-4am
The Old Police House, Swinburne Place, Gateshead, NE8 1AX

Fine food and a 6 hour jam in a former chapel of rest are the usual spoils of an Oppenheimer session. This evening the jam is truncated and the venue shifted, with the line-up augmented by Miguel Perez. From the people who brought you Culver, Xazzaz, Wrest, Charles Dexter Ward, Wehrmacht Lombardo…
