Powdered Cows @ Cellar Bar 17 SeptMartin from Powdered Cows joined us in the studio last week for a plug of this gig, and his new album. He’s been on for about 20 minutes by the time I arrive after swimming, and the usual array of electronica is around him, as I’ve tried to capture in the shots. He’s accomplished as a guitarist, hardly surprising considering his musical abilities, yet its amazing to hear yet another set of instruments being shown off by this versatile fellow.

Casini Division @ Cellar Bar 17 SeptAn acquired taste, Casini Division, which they seem to accept themselves judging by their on-stage announcements. Loads of effects on the electric guitars, with a synth slowly beating behind the vocals, creating a mix of some dreamy trance tunes and heavier riff work. It goes down well with those who are here, especially as they keep this trance-rock style while breaking into poetic shouted chant over each other as a finale.

During the gig I was introduced to a pleasant chap with a not so nice sobriquet (Radio Rules), who played as The Schemers before I arrived. Apparently worth catching, despite the name. Another time…
