07 maj 2019 kl. 19:00 - 23:00

Alice, Nørre Allé 7, 2200 København

Dørene åbner kl. 19.00
               

Stærk dobbeltkoncert i vente: London-baserede Still House Plants leverer svært dragende og minimalistiske popsange med nik til 70’er-no wave. Sholto Dobie åbner aftenen med sin karakteristiske solo-performance for fløjte, luftkompressor og skraldepose.

Den Glasgow og London-baserede trio Still House Plants er guitarist Finlay Clark, trommeslager David Kennedy og Jessica Hickie-Kallenbach på vokal. Gruppen har for nylig udgivet albummet “Long Play” (bison, 2018), en samling svært dragende skæve, lo-fi og minimalistiske popsange. Pladen, der har tråde til New Yorker-no wave som DNA og til den mest skramlede afdeling af The Velvet Undergrounds repertoire, har fået bl.a. The Wire, Low Company og KRAAK til nævne “Long Play” på deres Best of 2018-lister. 

Still House Plants er modtagere af OTO Projects UK Artists Residency Fund, og har skabt sig et massivt live-ryg på tour i det meste af Europa med navne som Mette Rasmussen og Richard Dawson på bl.a. Ultra Eczema's 20th Anniversary, (Antwerpen), Fasching Jazz Club, (Stockholm) og KRAAK festival (Brussel). 

Sagt om Still House Plants:

"Experimental songwriting is very rarely this successful or

approachable, save perhaps the likes of Robert Wyatt’s ‘Sea Song’ or

perhaps more pertinently, the Velvet Underground’s ‘Heroin'". The Quietus, 2016.

"A genuinely challenging and beautiful album." The List, 2018

Sholto Dobie

Skotske Sholto Dobie leverer både absurde og stemningsfulde stedspecifikke solo-liveperformances på instrumenter og materialer som fløjter, skraldeposer, ventilatorer og luftkompressorer. 

Dobie har performet solo på bl.a. Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival, Cafe OTO, Glasgow International, Scottish Sculpture Workshop, C.N.E.A.I, Paris og CCA, Glasgow, og udgivet musik på Wagtail, Cosmovisión Registros Andinos og OtoRoku, og kan skrive navne som Ben Pritchard, Lia Mazzari og Alvaro Daguer på sin liste over samarbejdspartnere. Hans nyeste samarbejde med Mark Harwood udkommer i foråret 2019 på Penultimate Press.

Sholto Dobie

Sholto Dobie is an artist from Scotland, his solo output is marked by live performances that are characteristically delicate, evocative and absurd. In recent years he has used his own instruments, crudely assembled from materials such as reeds, whistles, bin bags, fans and air compressors, alongside loose performative structures, to respond to places, bodies and situations.

He has presented solo performances at Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival, Cafe OTO, Glasgow International, Scottish Sculpture Workshop, C.N.E.A.I, Paris and CCA, Glasgow. He was Counterflows x Scottish Sculpture Workshop artist in residence in late 2018 and will perform at this years Counterflows Festival. 

He has released music on Wagtail, Cosmovisión Registros Andinos and OtoRoku and a collaboration with Mark Harwood will be released in spring 2019 on Penultimate Press. He regularly works with Ben Pritchard and Lia Mazzari, and has collaborated with Ashley Paul, Alvaro Daguer (Glorias Navales), Billy Steiger and Ivor Kallin. He also runs the event series Muckle Mouth which he founded in 2014.
