The first ever Match&Fuse triple bill tour visiting Italy, UK and Poland. Owls Are Not What They Seem are an explosive Polish trio, a mix of distorted bass, precise and dynamite drums with psychedelic electronica. Drum’n’bass arranged for a punk/hardcore setting. Piotr Cichocki: synth, Piotr Mazurek: bass, vocals and Rafal Klimzcuk: drums.
Explosive gets a repeat with the other bands on the bill. Psychedelic bravado and funk rhythms run through the trio of Tubax with Giacomo Schirru Manca: bass, Davide Stampini: synth, sampler and guitar and Alberto Fogli: drums. And WorldService Project, a quintet wrestling itself to bring out the most soaring sounds and ideas then wrestling other bands, just for the heck of it. Boisterous grooves, heavy rock and everything else. Dave Morecroft: keys, Tim Ower: sax, Raphael Clarkson: trombone, Conor Chaplin: bass, Liam Waugh: drums
