    About the acts..

    ///THE REVOLUTIONARY ARMY OF THE INFANT ST JESUS

    Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus is an experimental music collective that was formed in Liverpool, England in 1985 by founding members Leslie Hampson, Jon Egan, and Paul Boyce. Their name is a reference to the terrorist group in Luis Buñuel’s final film, That Obscure Object of Desire

    The group’s music is a blend of folk and sacred music, industrial and ambient sounds, and samples that has drawn comparisons to neofolk artists like Current 93 and Death in June, as well as artists including Dead Can Dance, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Henryk Górecki, and Arvo Pärt. The group incorporates Christian imagery and symbolism into their music, and specifically draws inspiration from the Eastern Church,

    /// TRAPPIST AFTERLAND

    Trappist Afterland was formed in 2010 and is the Psychedelic folk project fueled by the religious ruminations of songwriter and multi instrumentalist Adam Cole (oud,guitar,Lute,tanpura plus an ever evolving line up of old friends and musical sympathizers.)

    Although the influence of folk music from various sectors around the world can be heard in Trappist Afterland’s music (The British folk revival, 70’s acid folk, Gamelan music, Middle Eastern music, Indian raga) they still maintain a unique and almost otherworldly quality, that sounds unlike anyone else.

    With lyrical explorations delving into Gnosticism, Christian mysticism and other esoteric themes, Trappist still manage to keep their music firmly grounded in the present while maintaining a timeless quality.

    /// HEAD SOUTH BY WEAVING & ALISON O’DONNELL

    Singer, musician, writer of songs & soundscapes. Collaborator in a number of bands across folk, trad, alternative & crossgenres. Long career going back to Mellow Candle as a teenager. Student of United Bible Studies. Songs are meaningful and frequently pastoral and poetic, sung with passion and heart.

    Joined on the night with Alison is Winchester’s answer to Jimmy Campbell. Head south by Weaving mainstay Graeme Lockett evokes classy songwriting with a twist of the macabre from the British folk tradition.

    /// B’EE

    Rarely mentioned in articles and reviews without an adjective, B’eirth has been called “mysterious,” “reclusive,” “nomadic,” “effusive,” and “singular.” Much of this attention is due to his cultivated image as a modern-day troubadour and preferring instruments with Renaissance roots.

    B’ee is proficient at playing a myriad of instruments, including guitar, cittern, harps (both mouth harps and folk harps), harmonica, recorder, reeds and flutes. He is largely self-taught (though says he has didactically studied “16th century polyphony”). He designs and fabricates his own stringed instruments.

    As a live performer, B’ee is commonly associated with his easily recognizable pear-shaped and double-necked guitars. The later is a guitar/cittern hybrid made by B’eirth himself in 1998, which he calls the Stringed Spade. It is, in his own words: “a standard 6 string on the top neck and 9 strings in 5 courses (low course single) on the lower neck. I wanted the combination so as to avoid changing instruments between songs during performance. Occasionally I play both necks during one song and sometimes use the cittern neck as resonant strings while the top neck strings are sounding.” [1]

    /// DAVID COLOHAN

    An eerie loveliness that should really be soundtracking a Werner Herzog film; indeed Popol Vuh’s work provides a useful reference point for Raising Holy Sparks as, similar to Vuh, the music herein is almost religious in its solemnity and grace.’

    /// MOONGAZING HARE

    “I dreamed that the hall was filled with wild swine and my true lover swimming in blood”

    Pink Mist Presents: Doe, Brunch + Flirting

    PINK MIST PRESENTS:
    Doe 5th Birthday Show
    With Brunch & Flirting

    Limited advance tickets available on DICE here

    Since forming in early 2013 Doe have built a UK following with their unique brand of ‘wonky alt-pop’ (Clash Magazine). The band’s influences are rooted in 90s indie-rock, but their songwriting style and lyrical content place them very much in the present. Off-kilter time signatures, intertwining guitars and the vocal-interplay between guitarist Nicola Leel and drummer Jake Popyura stand as clear markers of a band completely at ease with themselves. Their songs pack power but are also loaded with a wry sense of humour.

    In September 2016 Doe released their debut full length ‘Some Things Last Longer than You’, produced by Matthew Johnson (Hookworms / Suburban Home Studio). The album impressed critics and made it on to several end of year lists, most notably landing at 6th place on ABC News’ Best Albums of the Year. The Quietus branded STLLTY ‘the kind of record that will stir and inspire you during moments of existential crisis’.

    Live, Doe are a formidable presence and bring a frantic energy to every performance. Fresh from a trip to the US to play SXSW Festival and a handful of shows around New York, they will be debuting new material at their first London show in 6 months.
