Enthusiastic Eunuch presents a double header with two of Ireland's finest experimental groups
FIXITY is an experimental music group led by Composer/Drummer Dan Walsh. The tunes are explored in collective improvisation with a fluid cast of musicians from various fields of intrigue.
In June 2016 Fixity released the first in a series of self-produced and self-titled albums on the KantCope cassette label and since has recorded consistently with Tenor Saxophonist Emil Nerstrand (Lumi/Brigaden/Greasy Margaret) including a Double LP on Penske Recordings in December 2016 entitled "The Things In The Room", also featuring Guitarist Nils Andersson (Ljom/Ava) and Fredrik Persson (Sista Bossen) which was recorded in a single evening at the historic Tambourine Studios in Malmo, Sweden.
Since the release of "The Things In The Room" Fixity has released 2 Live EPs recorded in Cork and Malmö and has performed in Sweden and throughout Ireland with a cast of unique improvisers, continuing to expand on questions of the impossibility of stillness and repetition with an increasing network of collaborators and their welcome voices. So far 2019 has seen the release of Fixity's second LP on Penske Recordings, entitled "No Man Can Tell". The LP features Photogram artwork by Kate Bowe O'Brien and was produced with Patrick Cullen featuring an extended ensemble of Irish and International musicians, followed by an extensive tour of Ireland. New material is now gathering for further recordings and wider touring in 2020.
"Defined by its disregard for Parameters." - Brian Coney, The Thin Air "The Things In The Room is a deep experience" - Tristan Bath, The Quietus "[No Man Can Tell] is a brilliantly loose, shapeshifting record that is quite difficult to compare to anything else, a testament to Walsh and his bandmates’ singular vision" - Ryan O'Neill, The Thin Air "Simply exceptional." "One of the great albums of this decade." - KFUEL.org
Percolator Since 2012, Percolator have been carefully honing their craft to become one of Ireland’s most consistently arresting experimental bands, defying expectation at every turn. Masterfully navigating the spaces between subgenres, the trio’s drone-laced, hypnotic motorik rhythms are offset by spontaneous, yet intuitive curveballs, elevated by their Stereolab-recalling vocal harmonies and the miasmic ecstasy of shoegaze.
Now working on the follow up to their debut album 'Sestra', Percolator have already given us one of the moments of the year in the spine tingling crescendo of their latest track 'Freshin'
