Rough Americana + My Cat Is An Alien + Sebcat & Lowdjo

This Friday, 31st of May experimental concert evening at Recyclart with trancedental drones, rough guitar sounds and Pan-Afrabic immigrant spheres...

SebCat (Gonzo Circus) & yours truly (representing Discrepant) will be playing experimental records in support of Rough Americana & My Cat Is An Alien, entry only 5 euros! 20h30 ---> 01h

My Cat Is An Alien (21h > 21h45) is the musical brainchild of Italian brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio, whose sound is packed with many forms of experimentalia. At the end of last year, they suddenly changed their approach to focus on self-made snare instruments  and dissected electronic devices to give their musical universe a new sound. This new beginning has been documented on the double LP ‘Art Is A Tear Of Noise And Infinite Silence’, released on Discrepant records in october 2012. This will be their first Belgian show with this new sound.

Rough Americana (22h > 22h45) is the fertile collaboration between the couple Morgan Craft and Giulia Lolli (DJ Mutamassik) and sometimes their 9 year old son Meroe. This duo plays an array of rough improvised styles of modern times. The ‘Afro-American Viking’ Craft and the Italo-Egyptian roots of Mutamassik will supply musical influences from Memphis, Tennessee to Memphis, Egypt. Mutamassik is one of the pioneers of the Sa’aidi hardcore sound and expert in what she calls ‘Pan-Afrabic Immigrant sounds’. From her speakers she will fire afro-mediterranian hiphop as well as baladi breakbeats, brotherly next to more noisy and drone-like collages from her husband. Both worked with musical personalities such as Marc Ribot, Butch Morris, Ikue Mori, Hamid Drake and Kaffe Matthews and take their own unique place within the contemporary musical landscape.
