December’s show is one of our best so far. A fine eclectic mix that you won’t find anywhere else. Come in and join us. We only ask that you open your head and let us pour the sound in.
Another fine mix of sounds and spaces, featuring Jon Hassell, Gwenno, Jane Weaver, Interpol, The Orb and Khruangbin to mention but a few. All interspersed with some delights from our library music collection. Come in out of the rain, pull up a chair and spend a nice hour cwtching with us.
Apologies to those expecting a special edition Podcast from Kozfest 18. We tried to get something going, but alas, despite numerous invites; nobody wanted to come and talk to us. Best wishes to all the artists and people who attended.
Please take your corner table for a multi-course menu of fusion and nu jazz from the nocturnal creatures who caress and excite you as dusk falls. Grab some wine & some herb and settle into the night.
Our most unsettling show yet. 90 minutes of unbridled drone, featuring Sunn0))), Edith Progue, Stars in the Lid, Biosphere, Gultskra Artikle, Tunnels, Ulan Khol, Incandescent Void and other tortured souls to trap you in those twilight hours when you are alone. In Paradox Room, the only screams are in your head.
Undoubtedly Mr Warlow’s most unusual collection so far. Featuring no less than King Crimson, Burt Ward and White Noise. And just when you think normality may resume; up pops Peter Hammill and Robert Wyatt to rattle your psychic cage, before we all call in for tea at Viv Stanshall’s house. Some great music & sound from the biggest & best curator of eclectic records in Wales.
From 2014. A stirring set of ambient space converged with dub techno grooves. Relax in your favourite chair. Dance if you want. It doesn’t matter. Immerse yourself in this great vibe.
A story from 2006. The horror of visiting an old curiosity shop in a Norfolk town. Features prog rock and evil games. Don’t do it, kids. Click here
