      Hey all,

      last minute reminder for a london show tomorrow eve..

      Highpoint Lowlife presents:
      Not Clickable, a new monthly indie-electronic-noise evening, last
      wednesday of every month.

      28th September

      Leafcutter John [ Planet Mu ]
      Hands On Heads [ Upset The Rhythm ]
      DJ Scotch Egg [ Adaadat, Wrong Music ]
      Bovaflux [ Highpoint Lowlife ]

      The Legion, 348 Old Street, just across the street from Smallfish records.
      Starts form about 7pm, 5 pounds entrance.

      Leafcutter John is one of the most outrageous and unpredictable live
      performers, easily moving from abstract sound art controlled by magnetic
      pickups in a sports bra, to sombre almost Will Oldham like acoustic
      fingerpicking and crooning. I have no idea what to expect from tomorrows
      performance, but i have no doubt it will be amazing!

      Hands On Heads are key members of the Upset The Rhythm collective, who
      over the past year and a half, have been hosting the freakiest, most
      interesting and experimental live shows around, from Jandek, Why?
      Afrirampo and loads more. Hands On Heads are a four piece short sharp
      noise-pop band. Think along the lines of The Yummy Fur, or Boredoms, and
      you're in the right precinct.

      Bovaflux
      Our latest release from the label is the full length album by Bovaflux,
      and this will be our unofficial release party for it, lots of copies on
      sale. From minimal clicks and cuts, through to mutant two-step noise,
      always with an exceptionally strong sense of melody. The Wire had this to
      say about his latest record:
      "Bovaflux is Eddie Symons; by day a hardcore coder swamped with the
      minutiae of video game construction, by night a musician conjuring
      dreamlike space in which to take refuge. This, his debut album, is
      littered with melodic felicities and subtly euphoric sweeps of sound -
      indeed, at times it teeters on the brink of sentimentality, saved only by
      some crisp percussion programming and a healthy sense of restraint. With
      its downtempo twinkles and soft keyboard motifs, the title track is
      vaguley reminscent of mid-80's Depeche Mode - but instead of Dave Gahan's
      angsty yelp, we find only refined, dubby basslines and smoothly ascending
      chords. A track like "Happy Numbers" introduces some welcome distortion to
      Bovaflux's warmly amniotic soundworld, scratchy little clicks and flutters
      that lurk at the bottom of the mix, braced, like quinine, against the
      tonic water sweetness of the music rich, sedate progress. And "A Nice
      Place to End" is just that, a guileless, warmhearted ad gently soporific
      excursion whose naive but generous qualities encapsulate those of the
      record as a whole."

      cheers!
      thorsten
