Late Junction Festival - Gazelle Twin and Pulled By Magnets
Verity Sharp presents music from the first night of the inaugural Late Junction Festival, including sets by Gazelle Twin and Pulled By Magnets.
The first-ever Late Junction Festival came into the world last week - two nights of music from leading lights of the left-field, presented on stage at EartH in East London by our triple-threat: Verity Sharp, Max Reinhardt and Nick Luscombe.
Tonight, highlights from the first night. Electronic artist Gazelle Twin has developed a unique voice in the British musical landscape. Her latest LP Pastoral digs deep into the English psyche, channelling its darkness and lacing it with satire, all performed in a costume which is half court jester, half football hooligan.
Drummer Seb Rochford’s new band Pulled By Magnets perform their first major venue with a set of new songs exploring the margins of composed and improvised music. The group features his long-time collaborator, saxophonist Pete Wareham (Polar Bear, Acoustic Ladyland) and bass-player, Neil Charles.
Verity Sharp is our guide in the studio.
