Echolocation / Dystopian Sound Collective / Skiffuffle

  • The Smokehouse 6 South Street Ipswich, England, IP1 3NU United Kingdom (map)

For one night only….

CornDog Records and Daz H present an evening of delicious musical entertainment, for your ears, your arse and your brains.

Described as ‘The Provisional wing of the Leicester music scene’ Echolocation have something to say. Something to say about ‘them’, ‘it’ and ‘you’. While Echolocation very much have their own sound, there’s a flavour of The Fall in the mix. If the music was like The Fall it would be described as ‘mid-era’. If the vocals were like The Fall, they would be all-era Mark E Smith. But Echolocation are about so much more than any rough homage to other bands. Echolocation are fresh, curious, urgent and above all INTERESTING.
Listen to Echolocation –

Bringing together old-school 808 hip-hop beats, smashing them against the occasional four-to-the-floor techno slammer, then drizzling them with sweet cinematic strings, Dystopian Sound Collective revel in creating something immediate and slightly malevolent. Dystopian Sound Collective are here to entertain in ways you may not have seen before and might never see again. The live set is a swirling mist of lasers, dense fog and musical war-cries.

Something of a musical wildcard. Skifuffle come from what at first appears to be a very traditional skiffle / rockabilly, but with some very distinct surprises. If you want to find out what the surprises are you’ll have to join us on the night.

For this event we are encouraging you to bring along and donate non-perishable foods, toiletries and sanitary products for The Bus Shelter project.
