Leeds Fusebox kicks off with Bitch'n'Monk

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.

'Exquisite. A kaleidoscope of musical forms.' BBC Radio3

'One bite of this will send you into a lovesick coma and give you an electrifying kiss of life all at once.' The Quietus

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

Doors open 8 pm, Music starts 8.30 pm. Admission price: £8/£6 on the door. At the Fox and Newt, 9 Burley Street, Leeds LS3 1LD (opposite Park Lane College) Tel: 0113 245 4527.
