noises AND skating!!!!

I love this new piece we’ve written, said Julia. But I think it should be faster. How can we make it faster? Asked Fritz. Let’s put it on wheels, said Julia. Will it be able to go around corners? Asked Liene? Yes, said Julia.

Fast forward to April 2016 >>>>>

It’s Called Discharge

The New Performance by Asparagus Piss Raindrop for 6+ Roller Skaters and amplified Roller Rink. Semi conductor life lines of symmetry exceed centrifugal life boat love ins. Kind of Like the moment you noticed that Cole from Sunset Beach was in But I’m a Cheerleader but louder, faster, longer and with a flashback corner. But seriously: afforded the use of the Roller Stop Roller Disco for crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax music we will continue to push beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. Now and forever.

Free after show skate taster session &/or free skate hire throughout the festival for attendees!

Easy access via Kinning Park / Shields Road Underground, Buses along Paisley Road West!!




Asparagus Piss Raindrop are a crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax band dedicated to pushing beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. APR is formed from a dreadful, ever-expanding pool of performer / composer / improvisers from the Glasgow experimental music scene. The group‘s work arises from the questions; How can we do things otherwise? What musical forms arise from and inform our daily experience? Performances typically draw on such things as recycled children’s games, group therapy, shapeshifting, declarations of ridiculous texts, geology, architectural intervention, gender theory, site specificity and slug reproduction. APR have been commissioned to produce work by Tectonics Glasgow, Tectonics Iceland, Transmission Gallery Glasgow, Association CRIC in France and Supernormal Festival in Oxfordshire.

Asparagus Piss Raindrop is a buncha B-sides on heavy rotation

…stands alone with four heads, eight arms and a six pack

…runs for office on a platform made of mud.

…jacks into the darkside with dancing shoes and hair tonic.

…shows up for a teach-in at the drive-thru

…runs amok for uncanny incantations.

Giant Tank: traversing maps of weirdness and forbidden zones since 2000.

The BBC Scottish Symphony orchestra's former maestro trades in his tuxedo and baton for a heavy coat of improvisation weaved from one half of Hockyfrilla's sinewaves and a cattleprod charged with scuzz by the same Edinburgh free noise authority.

"Um, well ’cause I don’t really do that sort of thing anyway. But um, yeah, I don’t know. They don’t really do anything like that tonal or anything like that. So I mean yeah, I probably wouldn’t do that sort of thing anyway."

Can disciples of broken prattle and antiquated magnetic tape ever successfully shoehorn themselves from their lo-fidelity slacks and into the tight fitting chinos of a contemporary laptop apprentice or would their penchant for murk and sloth paunch give them away as dilettantes? Nikita says "It's all gone digital now, innit", but maybe we'll see about that.....

and comes with nice review ....
"Rhian Thompson of CKDH also has no trouble filling the room. Her set hits unprecedented volumes. With a constant drone of wind noise, she whisks all her sounds to crushing peak. What's so powerful about Thompson's set is she doesn't give a shit; she doesn't care that it's Saturday morning and light outside. She builds an epic darkness that echoes for the rest of the day."
teeth decay!
