Bitch'n'Monk 23 Sept
Bill Chatwin writes
At Fusebox we've been working hard to ensure another ecclectic, high quality and creative programme for Autumn/Winter 2016 and we already have artists booked for Spring 2017.
We kick off on 23rd SEPTEMBER, at The Fox and Newt, with the very interesting duo, 'Bitch'n'Monk' - Heidi Heidelberg and Mauricio Velasierra
"In the intriguing Anglo- Colombian duo Heidi plays guitar, sings and beatboxes and Mauricio plays assorted flutes. The two transform their sound into junkyard electronica through the ingenious use of looping pedals. You'll spend a while pondering how to classify them. Prog folk? Operatic post-punk? Gothic reggae? But they know how to write melodies" The Guardian.
Their influences are said to range from Prokofiev to Wayne Shorter, laid down with West African Rhythms.

Dave Kane will be providing support in the form of a bass solo.
