limitedNOISE presents: MATTHEW BOURNE MOOGMEMORY / SNACK FAMILY w SEAMING TO / HOWIE REEVE
Matthew Bourne – MOOGMEMORY
“A brave and rewarding left field adventure” – The Skinny
“Matthew Bourne is both a strikingly talented jazz/improv musician and a boldly adventurous composer” – Uncut
With a reputation as a fearlessly unpredictable pianist and composer, Matthew Bourne is a passionate explorer of sound, possessed of a burning desire to make music on anything old, broken or infirm. Returning to New River Studios with his Rudi Linhard modified Moog synthesisers, Bourne will perform selections from his acclaimed Leaf Label releases moogmemory and moogmemory plus ep.
“Snack Family’s music oozes…An unlikely middle ground between Battles and The Birthday Party.” – The Quietus
“We dare to say that these boys will grow into a highly respected act.” – Noisey by Vice
London based avant-rock trio Snack Family perform material from their recent album release ‘Bunny’ with special guest: the critically acclaimed vocalist and composer, Seaming To sitting in for a few. Following up from their excellent EPs ‘Belly’ and ‘Pokie Eye’, ‘Bunny’ marks their best, most magnificently degenerate work to date. Think Blurt and Nick Cave, Albert Ayler, Captain Beefheart and you’ve got some idea of the dirty power this no wave trio kick up. If Rock was dead, then this is the reanimated monster, breaking its restrains and tearing through the village, crying out to the skies, looking for love.
“Life affirming…fragile, funny, oozing with empathy and above all fantastic songcraft.” – James T McKay, The Cosmic Dead
“Unplugged-punk genius Howie Reeve is a linchpin in Glasgow’s DIY community…a breathtaking bass player.” – The Herald
Howie Reeve is a unique and singular figure in the current British underground. Having spent over 20 years playing in a number of key Glasgow bands, since 2012 he has been performing solo on acoustic bass guitar, delivering a fragmented and dexterous music that takes in post-punk and avant-folk. Increasingly turning to songwriting, he further engages audiences with cryptic, intimate and unsettling lyrics. Resolutely DIY in his approach to music, he lives in Glasgow but appears to be perpetually on tour, whether in the UK, Europe or Japan.
