The C siders are playing at ‘Talking Rhythm’ on Monday 29th July. Here are the details:

  • Talking Rhythm! is excited to present a hotter than July session for Monday 29th July. The temperature’s rising and we’re there with it!

    HANNAH LOWE is one of the most captivating voices on the London poetry circuit at the moment. Her Poems have appeared in Ambit, Acumen, Magma, Rising, Smiths Knoll, The Delinquent, The North and of course The Rialto. Her work has won prizes, commendations or been shortlisted in a number of poetry competitions including Aesthetica Creative Works, The Arvon International, Bridport and SQL. Having had colleagues saying ‘Hannah Lowe check her out.’ I eventually got the opportunity to hear her read from her first full collection ‘Chick’ published by Bloodaxe at the Torriano Meeting House in April. I was riveted by her reading from this collection which contains her memories of her father ‘Chick’ of the title – who was a complex larger than life character of Chinese and black Jamaican mixed races who came to London in the late 40s and eked out a living in ways she will describe and which I agree with reviewer Penelope Shuttle come across in her book in tones that are both ‘restrained’ and ‘devastating’. I came away with her words in my head and with the book ‘Chick’ firmly grasped in my hands. Collected information about Hannah is found at http://hannahlowe.org/

    RICHARD SCOTT studied music at the Royal College of Music and went on to study poetry at the Faber Academy and Goldsmiths College. He won the Wasafiri New Writing Prize 2011 and was selected as a Jerwood/ Arvon Poetry Mentee. Since I met him while we were both at Goldsmiths his poetry has hit the runway and just continues to rise. He’s been published twice in ‘Poetry Review’ and twice in ‘Poetry London’ two of the most prestigious poetry journals of contemporary and traditional writing. He’s also written some pieces that have translated beautifully into animation and digital poetry. He can be discovered at http://richardscottarvon.tumblr.com/ as well as links to his work published on the site for ‘Eyewear’ in Todd Swift’s blogspot there.

    MUSIC IN JULY comes from THE C SIDERS https://www.facebook.com/TheCSiders?fref=ts who comprise ROBERT STOREY, the dark heart of the Murphy Foundation in all its guises (Orchestre Murphy, Plain People of England, Miners of Banal, The Nobodies, Murphy No Geisha) and KATHY HULME, (Honkies, Smartbombs, Minute Woman). Both are old enough to know better but the music just won’t let them lie, so their songs tell the dirty truth about love, life and longing.
    Accompanying themselves on guitar and keyboard their original songs are dark, witty, romantic and musically curious. On stage live they are unpredictable; stopping songs to argue, perform tonsorial duties or answer the phone, their onstage chemistry fizzes like potassium in water.

    Before, after and around the above guests is THE OPEN MIC where you make the evening and introduce yourself so that in later sessions you too can become Talking Rhythm’s featured guest.
    The Amersham is opposite New Cross Station and 3/4mins walk from New Cross Gate Station, both five minutes on the Mainline from London Bridge. The Overground also stops at both NX and NX Gate links with East London and Highbury & Islington. The DLR comes to Deptford Bridge. Buses 53, 177 436 & 453 stop either right next to the Amersham coming from Plumstead direction or from town a few minutes walk away.

GOYLEM : INNER AND OUTER SPACE KLEZMER
Goylem is an unusual musical phenomenon hailing from Oslos underground scene. With one foot rooted in traditional klezmer, the several other feet and limbs of this intergalactic folk ensemble are free to explore Nordic traditions, Balkan beat, Middle Eastern dance rhythms, psychedelic prog and sci-fi electronica.

Space klezmer as a genre can be seen as an extension of the progressive klezmer tradition of the 20th century, on a thread with the infamous clarinetist Naftule Brandwein through John Zorn’s neo-klezmer. With deep love for the traditions they build on, the Goylemites put pride in abolishing borderlines. Between the sacred and the humorous, and the musically correct and incorrect. The public is adviced to bringing their best dancing shoes and prepare for an evening of treacherous time signatures, ingratiating scales and sparkling musical joy!

The last couple of years Goylem has appeared at various festivals live in Spain, Poland, Norway and Sweden – playing alongside with bands such as Kroke, Amsterdam Klezmerband, Farmers Market and Valkyrien Allstars.

GOYLEMITES:
Erlend Barratt-Due Solum is a cosmic rising star among klezmer clarinetists. Violinist Ingrid Halvorsen is classically trained, with a long term romantic relationship with Béla Bartók. Nikolai Rohrlapper is the first person ever to have an electric accordion implant in the chest. Christian Obermayer is the on board electrician, caring for fuses, wires, cables and snakes. Øystein Hvamen Rasmussen is our dealer of beats and percussions. Hans Erik Wagner, with his upright bass keeps the space klezmer universe alive, kicking and dancing!

C SIDERS
Who are the C siders? Sole exponents of Screwball Folk; songs of romance undercut by dark humour and ribaldry, delivered with lo-tec panache.

Robert Storey, the dark heart of the Murphy Foundation in all its guises (Orchestre Murphy, Plain People of England, Miners of Banal, The Nobodies, Murphy No Geisha) and Kathy Hulme (Honkies, Smartbombs, Minute Woman) are old enough to know better but the music just won’t let them lie, so their songs tell the dirty truth about love, life and longing.
Accompanying themselves on guitar and keyboard their original songs are dark, witty, romantic and musically curious. Live they are unpredictable; stopping songs to argue, perform tonsorial duties or answer the phone, their onstage chemistry fizzes like potassium in water.

‘Truly eccentric and absolutely out of step with any known fashion, past or present, though obliquely familiar to many of them.’ Chris Cutler ReR magazine

THE DISMANTLERS
The Dismantlers are Lepke B, Chris Weaver and Peter Rockmount. Lepke B ’s blissful disregard for the sacred in life has placed him as one of the testcard knights. His totally unique approach to sound plunderphonics and visual art have led him to work with some of the most respected people in his field,including the Turntable Hell tour with Otomo Yoshihide. Lepke broadcasts intermittently on Londons Resonance Radio as The Hand of Glory , Mobius Strip and other sonic interventions.
Chris Weaver is production manager at London’s first radio art station, Resonance 104.4FM. He is active as an electronic musician (Oscillatorial Binnage) and instrument maker as well the musical director of the station’s radio orchestra.

DJ KINGU BEE 
DJ Kingu Bee aka Simon King has been making music for more than three decades, starting in a punk band at school. He moved to London in the late eighties top study at Community Music under the legendary John Stevens. He has played as guitarist for Orchestre Murphy, Homelife, Lotus Pedals, Sound of the Sun and The Windsors amongst many others. He has been involved in the running of Club Integral since its re-emergence in 2004, and plays a mindblowingly eclectic range of music from dub, punk, rock and roll, African highlife,Calypso, soundtracks, big band jazz and beyond.

RUCKSACK CINEMA
Rucksack Cinema a.k.a. Jaime Rory Lucy has been supplying delirious, innovative live video imagery for Club Integral and other events since 2007. His astonishing and almost preternatural ability to mix imagery with what is happening on stage as well as creating strange and wonderful atmospheres throughout a room has made him an intrinsic part of any Club Integral event. Jaime had a long history working in the music industry as a tour manager for many groups of notoriety throughout the eighties and nineties, before retiring from the road to become an East End flaneur art fag par excellence. He has worked in venues as various as Whitechapel Gallery, Hackney Empire and Cafe Oto with artists as diverse as Fred Frith, Spaceheads, Graham Massey and Eugene Chadbourne. He has recorded videos for many artists, most recently for Orchestre Murphy for their nomination in 2010 for the Art Foundation Music Awards. In his spare time he has also been known to add his bass profundo to a punk choir active on the east London bohemian scene.
