Ambient electronics and noise from England. With dozens of releases on many notable labels (Alter, Opal Tapes, Strange Rules, Monorail Trespassing, Total Black), Cremation Lily is a truly dedicated underground project that has been carving its niche for nearly a decade now. Last year’s well-received LP on Alter records (‘In England Now, Underwater’) was a characteristically beautiful yet sorrowful collage of field recordings, spoken word, abstract textures, synths, and beats.
Solo noise project from Brighton. Knifedoutofexistence always brings exactly the kind of noise that I love to see live: a cacophony of distortion and feedback with a cathartic dose of screaming.
Harsh noise/power electronics from Manchester. I’ve been itching to see this project live since discovering that it had relocated to Glasgow recently. Heavy noise gigs are few and far between these days, so don’t miss the chance to see some proper fist-in-the-face harsh noise/power electronics.
Ambient electronics/post-industrial from Helena Celle/Anxiety member. A purveyor of hypnotic lo-fi melodies, squelches, bleeps, and drones. Total trip.
Solo project of minimal electronics and haunting vocals from member of The Downs/Kaspar Hauser. I was lucky enough to catch the debut Ananke show late last year and it was mesmerising in the way that only the most minimal and sincere music can be.

Andrés Penabad is a multi-awarded accordion player whose passion for music started considerably young being a part of several bands.
Penabad presented his second album “Bipolar” in 2016. This work exhibits a more tranquil and mature Penabad, after two restless years performing gigs in several cities in Spain and abroad.
He is currently one of the accordion players with more projection within the Galician and national folk music scene.
He has also collaborated with well-known musicians such as Carlos Nuñez, Kepa Junquera, Susana Seivane, Luar Na Lubre, Xose Manuel Budiño or Xavi Aburruzaga.
Interrobang?! with Purple Phantom
We’ll be bringing our usual mix of nonsense and bangers: pop music, disco, hip hop, probably some Yoko Ono, almost certainly Lissa Maffia, maybe The Fall, definitely Nicola Roberts. We don’t really know what we’re doing. We do know it’ll be fun!
First 20 people through the door will get a bespoke, one-off, high-quality* Interrobang T-Shirt so get yersels down early doors!
Dance? Dance‽ Dance!

After a gap of over 30 years Thomas Leer played live to appreciative audience at The Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock during October 2018. The live performance was the highlight of a month long retrospective exhibition “From the Port to the Bridge” which celebrated the work of Port Glasgow born Thomas and friend and fellow music pioneer Robert Rental.
Thomas and Robert’s ground-breaking music helped create the template for an explosion of independent post-punk releases and the synth-pop boom of the early 1980s.
Slinky Kinky in conjunction with The Old Hairdressers are extremely proud to be hosting Thomas’ first live performance in Glasgow.
The live set from The Beacon Arts Centre can be viewed here

DAVID THOMAS BROUGHTON
David Thomas Broughton is one of a kind. His live outings and recorded material defy easy classification. His shows are an exhilarating mix of musical improvisation and performance art, underlined with raw unpredictability. His recorded material is dark but beautiful, marrying traditional folk with surrealist experimentation
Over the past few years, David Thomas Broughton has been making waves with his unique and distinct approach to music. When Broughton performs it’s a story of incompletion and insecurity. As his songs ponder the difficulties of relationships, the awkwardness of emotion, he plays the same games with the audience. A pause mid-song to brush off his knee, or to rearrange his belongings on the floor: Layers of melody are slowly built, soar, whistle then fizzle as does a kettle on a stove.
Sealionwoman was formed by way of a fortuitous, chance meeting of Scottish-born jazz-influenced vocalist Kitty Whitelaw and double bass player Tye McGivern. The stripped-down duo line-up of Sealionwoman coalesced around Whitelaw’s rich and beguiling vocal and McGivern’s atmospherically inventive approach to his instrument. A defiantly uncategorisable sound was born, equally informed by melancholic soundscapes, torch-song transgressions and rapturous drama. McGivern offers Bad Seeds-style atmospherics influenced by noir-jazz degenerates Morphine and a Colin Stetson-esque approach to minimalism. This is masterfully fused with Whitelaw’s theatrical inspired vocals, taking inspiration from iconoclastic vocal stylists like Beth Gibbons,Circuit Des Yeux’s Haley Fohr, and Sarah Vaughan. ‘Siren’ is a work capable of luring any adventurous soul onto the rocks.
