We are really excited at the return of the Flower Corsano Duo this summer. An amazing line up with Ashtray Navigations and Nackt Insecten makes for a psychedelic improv explosion of the very best weird music. The show at KPC, Flower Corsano Duo played with Group Inerane was one of our favourite shows ever.
Formed in 2005, the duo melds the propane-lit, overdriven drone-ragas of MICHAEL FLOWER (Vibracathedral Orchestra, MV & EE, Sunburned Hand of the Man)’s electrified shahi baaja and the melodically kinetic and free drumming of CHRIS CORSANO (Paul Flaherty, Joe McPhee, Rangda, Bjork). In the years since their debut album The Radiant Mirror (Textile, 2007), they have toured and recorded frequently, expanding their range to include a mind-boggling array of free sound with seamless shifts between tumultuous intensity and blissed-out serenity.

Ashtray Navigations are 24 years old! The best psychedelic band in the UK. They put out so much great music. Their most recent release, 'Zoom Up' is a shimmering dream sequence with the «usual shiny mountain of FM, digital and analogue synthesis, rivmic pulsations and hot jet guitar, that kind of thing. Mixed and mastered on real old fashioned plastic audio tape, just like in ye aulde dayees for maximum crunch.»

Nackt Insecten, aka Ruaraidh Sanachan has put out lots of engrossing weird noise with his Sick Head tape label, brought us sublime kraut space rock with Moon Unit, and the flipper heavy punk of Bad Aura. Not seen much solo activity for a while so we are really excited to see him play tonight, check out his records Reality Bridge and Quantum Odyssey.
