Capsule 5th Birthday Party

...



Well we just can’t believe we’ve been around for so long and been allowed to get away with it…….in order to celebrate and thank all those who have supported us over the years we’re throwing a party, and to help us do that we have some great surprises up our sleeves including live performances from Noise Noise Alore( probably the fruitiest band on the planet), Esquilax + friends, a final farewell from the legendary king of pop Floach and a set by PCM but not as you know them.
As well as special guest djs and some tasty cinematic treats courtesy of 7 inch cinema. Not forgetting a chance for you too to shine with some karaoke……

 

see below what a mess has occured at past capsule parties…
mmm a running theme of fashion faux pas

 

 

 
“Merzbow, David Grubbs, Mira Calix, Calvados Beam Trio, VVM, Oxes on Boxes, Fugazi, Godspeed, Kid 606, Black Dice, Melt Bananarama, Lydia Lunch, Lightning Bolt.

10 Years ago if you wanted to go see any of these or similar bands you would be taking a trip to London or nearby, better cities like Manchester, Edinburgh or Wolverhampton, and sleeping under some damp cardboard boxes at the station, or someone’s sticky lino kitchen floor because the last train back to Brum was at ten to nine. If you wanted music in Birmingham in the dark, dark days of 1995, you could choose from Bob Dylan at the NEC (£35.00 plus booking fee) or Ronnie Scott’s for Tony Hadley supported by King Pleasure and Broken Biscuit Boys any given Wednesday for £12.00 (drinks £4 per pint). Because let’s face it, in those days Birmingham WAS shit…

I certainly don’t recall anyone contesting the fact on website or elsewhere! In the last five years or so things have changed, big shops have been built, nice places to eat after 5pm have began to emerge, things have been painted white and broken biscuits have been banned from the city centre. And more importantly you can go to see good, interesting new music at a fair price, meet groovy, fun people and still have enough change from a twenty for a balti. It is almost exclusively the Capsule Girls who have made this happen. We should be grateful.

Capsule 5 years on – Colin Tudor

It is so easy now to mull over the relative merits of the DJ Rupture or Lightning Bolt gig on in town tonight. 5 years ago the idea of a regular flow of cutting edge, vital new music flowing through Birmingham was a fantasy. Over the intervening years Capsule have proved to be diligent and energetic supporters of quality music with the ears of true fans and DIY commitment we should all applaud.

Over 5 years Capsule have presented 86 events. Capsule has presented artists from a range of genres and a mixture of established and emergent artists, with an emphasis on the experimental side of each genre. Capsule have built up a reputation for bringing international / national talent to the West Midlands and for being instrumental in the development of the current experimental music scene in the region. Every one of these events has featured regional artists, they are fundamental to Capsules activities and to the creative scene within the West Midlands.

Capsule are Lisa Meyer & Jenny Moore, they create, curate and facilitate Capsule events and collaborations with energy, wit and positive spirit. Whether it be art installations, organizing trips to Sonar, co-promotions with local promoters, Cinema or cultural events.

Jenny explains “Exhibitions have also been high on the list of things we like to do. Giant was an early high point because we were so thrilled to have an exhibition by an artist whose work we really admired, and equally so with the Lodown and Unabomber shows. The Lodown opening event was one to remember, we hired Sumo suits for people to have sumo fights in what is now the Custard Factory reception, it all got quite messy towards the end of the evening. ” Merzbow, Coil, Fugazi, Godspeed, Kid 606, People Like Us, Melt Banana, Lydia Lunch, and a host of other great, good and ghastly acts have passed through the Custard Factory home of Capsule over the last five years. Now we expect to be greeted by Japanese freaks, teutonic goatees and taciturn Wire types as we assemble to witness the latest US undergound phenomenon/Bedroom Terrorist.

As a Capsule event regular explains “10 Years ago if you wanted to go see any of these or similar bands you would be taking a trip to London or nearby, better cities like Manchester, Edinburgh or Wolverhampton, and sleeping under some damp cardboard boxes at the station, or someone’s sticky lino kitchen floor because the last train back to Brum was at ten to nine.”

There is a thin line between fan and promoter. The reason Capsule are 5 years old at all is that there was nothing of interest to your curious music devotee in Birmingham in 1999. The last recourse of a frustrated music fan is to do-it-yourself. If there are no good gigs here then we should put some on ourselves! This is the point at which Capsule become an inspiration to anyone in a musical ‘backwater’ – Start something yourself and bring the music to you.

Early nights featured the likes of Snail Racing, Bilge Pump, Buick 6 and do make say think. Discerning music fans emerged from the woodwork and a scene was set.

Events such as this formed the platform from which to build a reputation. This in turn raised the bar on the acts that could be brought to town.

Now events like Fugazi, Chicks On Speed, Godspeed you Black Emporer! or Kid 606 were possible. This inexorable rise has been managed with restraint and culminates in the mighty Supersonic Festival. Now an annual event which has featured a stellar cast including Coil, Deadsunrising, Luke Vibert, DJ Scud and Senor Coconut and His Orchestra.

Of all these what have been the favourites from the promoters point of view ? Jenny again,

“With Capsule and Cake we worked with Ian Francis who asked us to come and do an alternative event for the Birmingham Film and Television Festival. We mixed live music with relevant films (and cake!), it is one of our favourites for several reasons, firstly it was a predominantly Birmingham line up and it was a sell out show, It was good to do an event in a non music venue puts a twist on the whole night. There was a really good atmosphere the whole evening.”

“The first Supersonic Festival was a big achievement for us and made us feel excited about what we were doing. Fugazi was the most star struck we have ever been, meeting our teenage heroes.”

The credibility of the Capsule events is an aspect which the Capsule Girls are keen not to compromise. As events like Supersonic have become larger scale, 2004 was over 3 days, they have worked to balance the expectations of the audience, the level of quality they are associated with and the commercial necessities of running larger music events. One thing is certain though, the people who benefit are the music fans of the West Midlands. One recent comment from a Birmingham Culture Discussion Forum says it all

“It’s true though that their programming has been consistently interesting and helped to open a space for more dynamic and ‘cutting edge’ performers in Birmingham, which has traditionally tended to go along a rather conservative path in relation to music…”

An important factor in the respect which Capsule events are afforded is the sheer variety of artists that they have put on. There is no scene promotion or fashion following here, just high caliber artists with a proven track record for engaging live events. The only thing that links Electric Wizard, DJ Shitmat, Senor Coconut, Marc Almond and Matt Wand is that any discerning music fan should see them.

To celebrate 5 years as Birminghams musical curators there is a party featuring Friends of the stars, Noise Noise Alore, Esquilax, Floach and PCM. As the girls themselves put it

Well we just can’t believe we’ve been around for so long and been allowed to get away with it…….in order to celebrate and thank all those who have supported us over the years we’re throwing a party including a final farewell from the legendary king of pop Floach and a set by PCM but not as you know them.”

Again this event confirms Capsules commitment to local music and the people who come through the door to support the artists and events.

Over the last five years or so things have changed, now, you can go to see good, interesting new music at a fair price, meet groovy, fun people and still have enough change from a twenty for a balti. It is almost exclusively the Capsule Girls who have made this happen. We should be grateful.

Sunn 0))) + Black Galaxy

...

SUNN O)))
BLACK GALAXY

SUNN 0))) is a side project of Khanate/Burning Witch (Steve O’ Malley) and Goatsnake (Greg Anderson) members. It was formed in memory of the cult drone-riff founders EARTH and honors the beautiful Ozma. The SUNN0))) mission is to create trance like soundscapes with the ultimate low end/bottom frequencies intended to massage the listeners intenstines into a act of defecation.

 

 

kREEPA mix electronic and acoustic elements to create improvisations that explore the dynamic interplay between acousmatic synthesis and instrumental approaches.

Black Galaxy features Nicholas Bullen whose abrasive work in Napalm Death initiated a new musical genre known as ‘Grindcore’ and later a member of the dark, isolationist and dub-influenced Scorn. In collaboration with Simon Mabbutt they fuse cold and alien galactic soundscapes with minimal warped bass and glacial rhythmic underpinnings to create nocturnal sonorities.

Together, the musicians will collaborate to create a soundfield which fuses analogue/acoustic and digital/electronic elements into a series of tonal clusters and soundscapes.

Minus The Bear (USA – ex BOTCH)

...

MINUS THE BEAR (ex Botch)
THE MURDER OF ROSA LUXEMBURG
 NUMINOR

Event Details:
MINUS THE BEAR Minus the Bear rose from the ashes of bands such as Botch, killsadie, and Sharks Keep Moving. For fans of Don Caballero with screwball song titles, deft tempo-shifting, and Wyld Stalyn-worthy fingertapping methods.
for further info:
www.minusthebear.com

 NUMINOR Stealing their name from the French 80’s Cartoon Ulysees 31, Numinor didn’t initially place too much emphasis on the choice of name, instead wishing to get on with the rock. The frivolity of the name does not, however, cross over into the music. A tight, clinical mixture of myriad influences gives a sound that, whilst having reference points to grasp onto, can never truly be pinpointed, often going into unexpected territory. For closer inspection think spazzy rock’n’roll hitting on post-rock and harder sounds, taking in the influence of artists as disparate as circle takes the square, jairus, black cross, mogwai, q and not u, envy, breather resist and the great redneck hope amongst many others. www.numinor.co.uk.

To Rococo Rot + Pram

...

To Rococo Rot
Pram

 

 TO ROCOCO ROT ‘s stated aim has always been the transfer of electronic music from the club to everyday life, in which music in its fleeting, non tangible form becomes something more concrete. They formed in 1995 when brothers Robert and Ronald Lippok were invited by the owner of a gallery, in which they were exhibiting their artwork, to record some music instead of providing a catalogue. Rising to the challenge, they invited bassist Stefan Schneider from up and coming DŸsseldorf based Kreidler to join them. The result is an oddly jarring musical landscapes with a minimum of self-consciousness and a maximum of groove. These guys play a stunning live set.

Birmingham based PRAM are best described as kitsch – horror music , incorporating Fisher Price toys, triangles and glockenspiels with eerie keyboards , horns in a jazz tinged lounge music style, which is best summed up as ‘uneasy listening’ music.

Some Girls + Das Oath + Calvados Beam Trio

...

SOME GIRLS (members of The Locust, Swing Kids, The Crimson
Curse) DAS OATH (transatlantic feedback, distortion and grindcore
drumming) CALVADOS BEAM TRIO

Event Details:
Some Girls have managed to
turn the hardcore scene on edge in these two short years since they
started. Starting merely as a loud crash and some simple ideas,
they’ve progressed into a powerful blitzkrieg of a band. With
release of only two 7″ EP’s and a few legendary performances, Some
Girls have truly become headturners and groundbreakers within the
punk/harcore world.

Some Girls is comprised of a cast of members that includes Wes
Eisold (Give Up The Ghost, American Nightmare), Rob Moran
(Unbroken, OVer My Dead Body), and Justin Pearson (The Locust,
Swing Kids, Holy Molar) among their collective line-up. Each member
brings their own approach and past musical history to the fold
creating Some Girls unique personality. A character that reeks of
the punk days of old while conjuring the raw musical urgency and
poetic prowess of the members’ previous artistic accomplishments.

Constellation Records Night

...

HANGEDUP
POLMO POLPO
ELIZABETH ANKA VAJAGIC
+ JUST A FIRE (ex members of Hoover/June of 44/Sweep the leg
Johnny)

The label’s travelling showcase will encompass the sublime maudlin of Elizabeth Anka Vajagic, Hanged Up’s see-sawing rhythm outfit and the powerbook reconnaissance of Polmo Polpo, joined on this tour with a full organic band arrangement. With the showcase rotating bill and dynamic sense of participation there’s never been a better time to check out the next generation of artists on this most exquisite of record labels.

HANGEDUP has released two stunning albums on Constellation. The duo mixes punk, improv and European folk influences to form blistering instrumental music for drums and viola. Eric Craven is an incredibly inventive and kinetic drummer, beating out rhythms very much in the spirit of Dog Faced Hermans and The Ex, and incorporating percussion implements of his own design to fashion a totally distinctive sound. Genevieve Heistek rigs up her viola with looping pedals and bi-amplification to create huge swirling layers of chugging rhythms and dense drones. Hangedup have toured Europe twice in 2003, including an enthusiastically-received and critically-acclaimed opening slot for godspeed you! black emperor, and an appearance at the K-RAA-K festival with Tony Conrad, where they were proclaimed by many to be the festival highlight. This truly unique band puts on an amazing live show and rocks very hard.

POLMO POLPO released its debut record on Constellation in the fall of 2003, after a string of self-released 12″s. Using samplers, filter banks and various live instruments (slide guitar, accordion, double bass), Polmo Polpo creates full-spectrum drones and adds layers of melodic playing, resulting in a highly-evocative and emotionally-resonant hybrid of electronic and organic elements. With an approach to saturated sound similar to Fennesz and Pan Sonic, Polmo Polpo has a distinctive sense of melody anchored to submerged, pulsing beats. This will be the first European tour for this critically-celebrated artist, and will include a live band.

ELIZABETH ANKA VAJAGIC is a singer and songwriter with a raw, uncompromising voice in the same league as Patti Smith, PJ Harvey and Siouxsie Sioux. She delivers a true gothic folk/blues music, with modern dissonances and noise textures, and is set to release her brilliant debut record on Constellation in spring 2004. Fans of everything from Cat Power to Mazzy Star will make a serious connection with this intimate, cathartic music.

Lightning Bolt + Envy + Esquilax

...

LIGHTNING BOLT (USA)
ENVY (JAPAN)
ESQUILAX

The future of music has arrrived! Lighting Bolt will be landing in Birmingham while in between shows at this years ATP festival. With just drums and bass, trainspotters will name check similarly staffed outfits like the Ruins and Godehead Silo.

Prepare yourself for much moreÉ The massive, chunky noise violence that emits from bassist Brian Gibson and drummer Brian Chippendale onstage makes for an intensely visceral experience. Chippendale’s vocals transmit via a contact mic rigged to his mouth inside a weathered, striped ski mask. Their amps alone are about the height and size of a large-scale yurt, and when they’re turned up all the way, the sound is both hypnotic and physically exhausting.

Noise and commotion, dance floor fury and intracite symphonies to washing machine squeaks. New music, guarenteed to include every citizen of Earth in a scrambling race to the finish line of complete sound! It is rare the sounds of the future are so appealing to all life forms. Their hyper-humanoid percussion matched with bowel loosening bass is sure to please.

Lightning Bolt has played with folks like Melt Banana, Ruins, Locust and Arab on Radar and share a similar sense of uber-absurd rockulism.

ENVY
For over 11 years, they have been creating the most intense fusion of emotive ballads with ferocious teeth gritting screaming hardcore. They have created their own sound with their speedy guitars, loud pounding bombastic drums, heavy screams in Japanese, and pummeling fretless bass lines. Think somewhere between Yaphet Kotto to Mogwai.

Mego records

...

HECKER
PITA
HIAZ
RUSSELL HASWELL
VD_MOTH

Event Details:
The Austrian label MEGO started in 1994. Regarded as one of the most respected label’s of its time, due to the extreme effort that is put into packaging and artwork, as well as a glorious disregard for being pigeonholed into any one genre… It is the aim that Mego releases and ideas should be collected and experienced for many years to come and not be seen as some fodder for hopeless fashion victimised disc jockeys.

Four MEGO artists present real-time material at this event. Label boss Peter Rehberg [PITA] states: “its a game of 2 halves really: One half improvised ‘in patch’ audio work outs using SC 2.9 and 2.10 patches developed by Andreas Pieper for Mego, one half playback and manipulation of own and other persons audio works”. The Britsh Artists Russell Haswell uses generative audio software to create audio so physical as to provide a collapsing sculptural like experience. The German Florian Hecker [HECKER] Uses the Computer Hard and Software enviroments, live demonstrations include a broadband mix of historical as well as most recent computer synthesis and file manipulating techniques. [HIAZ] A founding member of Farmersmanual a pan-European, multisensory disturbance conglomerate that had a stream of concerts and performative events since 1995, continuously expanding their performance practice towards environments where the public becomes an essential part of the work. His latest work focuses on creating synesthetical experiences presenting an interconnected, holistic view of the world by cross activating sensual stimuli.

Sightings

...
  • Sightings
  • Death of a Champion
  • Altamont

Event Details:
Screaming out of New York City is the shit hot sounds that stretch the 3-piece rock format out like a molten piece of taffy. 11 songs, real short and frothing at the mouth. You can hear a three piece band in the classic guitar-bass-drums format make the kind of noise others would need electronics for. Fans of Mainliner, free rock like Wolf Eyes, quiet walks in the park, Harry Pussy, Yoko Ono and herbal tea will really dig this slippery slab. This is a complete baaad-ass hate fest with sub-dermal bass, paper thin razor guitar and Axis of Evil drumfuckery.

The band has toured with Load acts Lightning Bolt and Pink and Brown and played with Van Halen, Guns and Roses, and Creed. They are superstars of the noisy rock mafia, have quick tempers, and unflinching instincts. The songs are fast, the levels in-the-red, and lyrics unintelligible.

Aaron Funk (aka Venetian Snares) hails from Winnipeg in Canada. Since his debut 12″ in 1999 on a small Minneapolis label he has risen out of the drill’n’bass/breakcore mire to become one of the most astonishing (and popular) musicians working in the experimental electronic sphere (alongside Squarepusher, Aphex Twin and boards Of Canad). Each new album from Aaron brings with it a new sound, a new atmosphere, a whole new world – he never repeats what’s gone before. It could be described as a mutant post-punk ragga-jungle pop music for an alternative reality. Aaron just calls his music surrealism.

“Venetian Snares is to Music what Satan is to Christianity: a profoundly malevolent force who looks great, intimidates a lot of boring people and is, despite everything, insanely popular… It’s like experiencing The Empire Strikes Back on 3D IMAX on LSD…” Piers Martin – NME
