Moss Lime 2015

Post-punk from Montreal with love, file under ESG, Young Marble Giants, Neo Boys, The Raincoats, The Feelies, Freelove Fenner.

Moss Lime is a Montreal based band, made up of sisters Charlotte Bonamour and Hélène Barbier from Lille, France, their former roommate Caitlin Pinder-Doede from Toronto, and along the way, Joel Young (Astral Gunk) from the Canadian east coast. They spent the summer 2014 in Parc Petite Italie in Montréal, enjoying food and beverages from Lalime. One day they went to the swimming pool and another day they decided to play music together in a basement with a great dehumidifier.

Inspired by local punk bands with similarly unpretentious starts, Moss Lime booked their first show at a neighbourhood bar, performing a short set of their four original songs and one cover song, an almost unrecognizable reinterpretation of European club hit “Calabria 2007″.

At the end of the summer, a few days before Charlotte was supposed to move back to France, the group went to record with Peter Woodford (Freelove Fenner) at his and Caitlin Loney’s all-analog home studio, The Bottle Garden, with the intention of producing what they referred to as a “souvenir”, to document their short summer as a band, Fixture Records released the tape EP July First (Bandcamp).

They quickly started getting offers to play shows with local bands and even landed a last-minute spot at this year’s POP Montreal festival. Moss Lime’s melodic minimalism, idiosyncratic vocals, and strong sense of play, as witnessed in this promising first collection of recordings, already shows signs of further experimentation to come, they will release their first LP this year.

They’ll tour in Europe and UK next winter and are open to shows proposals in October, November and December 2015, and are available for festivals and special events beforehand. Booking contact

Moon Duo devenu trio en France et sur nos platines au printemps.

sbr122-moonduo-shadowofthesun-1440L’expérience psychédélique, qu’il s’agisse, d’art, de musique, de drogue ou de littérature permet un état de conscience altéré qui s’étire bien longtemps après le premier contact. Le 3eme album de Moon Duo, Shadow Of The Sun, évoque un peu cette expérience. Produit après l’adrénaline des tournées, il est issu d’un des rares et presque irréels moments de calme et de sédentarisme du groupe. On y retrouve le batteur canadien John Jeffrey aux côtés de Ripley et Sanae plus seulement sur scène mais également en studio. Sortie prévue en avril sur Sacred Bones et on peut déjà vous dire que c’est un des albums de 2015…

10/04/2015 – Paris, La Machine du Moulin Rouge
11/04/2015 – Bordeaux, Le Bootleg
16/04/2015 – Lyon, Le Marché Gare

Minisym formed in Nantes, France during the 2013’s spring by young Moondog’s specialist Amaury Cornut (writer of the french biography about the Viking of the 6th Avenue, ed. Le Mot et le Reste). Thanks to a singular instrumentarium (violin, viola, cello, but also eletric guitar, theorbe, hurdy gurdy and of course a crazy drums) the five musicians offer a true panorama of Moondog’s unique music. The program called “From US to EU” mixes periods (pieces composed between 1949 to 1994 and from the States to Europe) and styles (classical, pop, avant-garde, quasi-jazz). Sometimes rooted in a past without nostalgia, and animated by an almost cosmic modernity, the music of the composer uses contemporary urgency to serve the forgotten tradition, and the Ensemble Minisym sneaks into the remaining free spaces left by Moondog.

Available all year long / website / booking contact

Don’t Make a Scene: a field guide to putting on DIY gigs

Putting on DIY gigs is rewarding, fun and often important in bringing communities of musicians, artists, writers, photographers and audiences together in spaces removed from the mainstream and in places largely absent from tour itineraries.  However, without inspiration and information from others, it can seem daunting to try and get started.

Don’t Make a Scene responds to this need. A group of DIY promoters, musicians, label heads, tour managers, bookers, sound engineers and audience members from across the UK draw from their own experiences to offer advice and resources in the form of articles, interviews, illustrations and photographs. What results is a diverse, informative and easily digested how-to (and how-not-to) guide for the fledgling promoter.

The contributors to Don’t Make a Scene are largely drawn from people that the zine compilers Rob St. John and Bartholomew Owl (from Edinburgh band eagleowl) have worked with or been inspired by in their collaborative promoting and music making over the last decade.

Contributors include Chris Tipton (Upset the Rhythm, London: ‘Curate your event with imagination, honour and taste’), Sofia Hagberg (End of the Road / Sam and Sofia, Sheffield: ‘Advancing a show’), Emily Tracer Trails (Edinburgh and Glasgow: ‘A guide to not losing money on gigs’), Fielding Hope (Cry Parrot / Cafe Oto, Glasgow / London: ‘Applying for funding’), Andy Inglis (5000 / former manager of the Luminaire, London: ‘We’re good at taking things for free’), Matthew Young (Song, by Toad, Edinburgh: ‘Bridging the promoter-musician gap‘), Johnny Lynch (Lost Map, Isle of Eigg: ‘Some things I’ve learnt about putting on gigs’) and Andy Abbott (That Fucking Tank, Leeds: ‘DIY bother? Reasons to keep doing it’) and many more.

Don’t Make a Scene contains new visual art, illustration and photography by Lizzy Stewart, Tommy Perman, Sarah Tanat-Jones (Synaesthete / Kit Records), Craig Coulthard, Neil Cammock, Matt Pattinson and Cammy Watt (Enfant Bastard).

The zine features an interview with Marie Tippex (from booking agent Julie Tippex), and articles on DIY sound engineering by Tim Matthew (regular engineer for Lau); all-ages gigs by eagleowl’s Clarissa Cheong, setting up DJs and club nights by Malcolm Benzie (Papi Falso) and Lisa Brook (founder of Cafe Kino in Bristol and DJ Cupcake); and advice for prospective promoters from experienced touring musicians David Thomas Broughton, Mark Andrew Hamilton (Woodpigeon) and Dan Willson (Withered Hand).

Zine (84pp).  Released 24th November 2014.
First edition: 300 copies. £4.00
