Bad Uncle & HearHere @ Sounds From The Other City 2011
(Sunday 1st May)
Manchester based promoters Bad Uncle and HearHere have collaborated for the 2011 edition of Sounds From The Other City to produce ‘Soundtracks From The Other City’. This stage will showcase bands performing unique sets accompanied by scenes from a visual work of their choice. The intention is to create a special audio-visual experience for the both the performers and audience.
FIXERS soundtracking...Glitter (Mariah Carey)
"Fixers are the new Oxford five-piece set to emerge in 2011 as one of the most creatively minded bands. Sonorous melodies and incredible musicianship blend together to make music that is thoughtful and uplifting. An experimental surf dance quintet. They have been playing and recording together for just under a year, blending the sixties psychedelic childlike innocence of Brian Wilson and Bruce Haack with the spaced out eighties avant-garde dance of Arthur Russell, Dead Can Dance and Tom Tom Club.”

DENIS JONES soundtracking...a specially creating audio/visual piece in conjunction with wasp video
"Denis began his musical life as a singer-songwriter in the classic UK mould of the likes of John Martyn; over the last three years he has developed a show-stopping live performance based around the core of his exceptional, unique guitar-playing style and rich, soulful voice. Utilising a loop station and all manner of samplers and effects, Denis creates vast, complex orchestrations of beat-box rhythms, multi-layered vocals and other-worldly sounds which veer from subtle heart-wrenching folk and blues to heavy bass-driven electronica."
TEMPERATURES soundtracking a specially created visual work for the festival
"Temperatures are a London Based Duo. Their work is a crescendo of weirdo vocals, overblown electronics, submerged bass and drum mathematics. For sounds from the other city they are creative a new short film to accompany their set. If you dig Mouthus, Sightings and Linghtning Bolt check out Temperatures. Thurston Moore did and he fucking loved it."
"This south manchester trio weave together an intricate mix of mathy instumentals, motorik rhythms and layered gutair textures. Like a Mancunian Don Cab/Neu! these guys have releases on local imprint Akoustik Anarky and rocked Greenman festival to it's core!"

DAY FOR AIRSTRIKES soundtracking...Rita, Sue, and Bob Too.
"Day for airstrikes formed in 2003 as an outlet for ridiculous ideas that they were unable to express with their former teenage bands. Since their inception they have released three records of instrumental rock music that has evolved from pop-influenced post rock to progressive rock and formed numerous other bands and projects. For SFTOC (their second time here at the festival) they are performing an original soundtrack for the 1986 movie Rita Sue And Bob Too. Expect the unexpected - just don't expect any Black Lace covers."

DEAF TO VAN GOGH'S EAR soundtracking...Big Trouble in Little China
"Deaf to Van Gogh's Ear are a four-piece math-pop band based in Manchester, UK. With members originating from as far afield as Miami and Dukinfield their sound is expectedly and notably eclectic and diverse. Complex rhythms and song structures cuddle up to sweet pop melodies and catchy successions of chords; all performed with a healthy helping of instrument swapping. All in all something to flex both the intellectual and the dancing muscles. "
DR MAHOGANY'S GOAT CIRCUS soundtracking...BARAKA (Ron Fricke)
"African song drifts over Latin American rhythm, jazz-fusion drums tangle with folk finger-picking guitar - these are the sounds of the Goat Circus. At times tender, tranquil and soulful, at others brash, bombastic and earthy, the music of the circus shifts and weaves freely. Their hope is that the audience associates with the many influences in their music - world, jazz, classical, rock, roots ... the list goes on. Put any preconceptions aside and simply enjoy.
Formed in Manchester in 2009, Dr. Mahogany's Goat Circus is a collision of multi-instrumentalists with very different tastes, each playing with their own distinct style and expression. Starting as a motley collective who gathered to jam, improvise, and create, they began performing live to keen audiences in 2010 with a permanent line-up of five musicians. Nevertheless, at heart the Goat Circus remains a collective project, and guest musicians often feature in recordings and on stage. They care about melodies, beats, imagination, the movement of the body and most of all creativity. They themselves don't know what's coming out next."
