Unorthodox Paradox presents ICHI & Bob Drake

Unorthodox Paradox presents ICHI & Bob Drake

Sep 2, 8:00pm - Sep 3, 2:00am

Dark Horse Moseley
Alcester Road
Birmingham,  B13 8JP Map

Unorthodox Paradox proudly presents...an evening of outsider music, psychedelia and curiosities!

After a mindbending but intimate set at last year's UP festival, which was widely recognised as being the higlight of the weekend, we are very excited to have ICHI back with more of his warm-hearted and compelling madness. Hailing from Japan, but for the last few years residing in Bristol, ICHI takes the notion of the one-man-band to heady new heights, combining handmade instrument inventions with steel-drum, ping-pong balls & tape-loops, to tell stories of mosquitoes, ducks and hippos. In the cosy setting of the Dark Horse, we can assure you your minds will be blown in a gentle, yet somehow primal way.

Another returnee, but this time with a bit more warning, is Bob Drake. Perhaps best known for his work with 'avant-rock' pioneers Thinking Plague, he is also an accomplished producer who has worked with artists as diverse as Ice Cube, Tina Turner & Englebert Humperdinck! In his solo guise, however, he transforms into some kind of psychedelic troubadour, and uses the well-trodden path of guitar and voice, but twists it into multiple new forms that would send your average singer-songwriter scurrying for cover. Frequently translating his own songs that, in their recorded forms, are complex multi-layered affairs, it is testament to his musical skill and imagination that in solo performance they lose none of their wide-eyed delight, or panoramic splendour.

The final installment of a resplendent trio of dazzling entertainment comes from local enigma, Bom and his Magic Drumstick. It's taken a while chasing him to try and pin him down, but that is exactly what we have finally managed to do, like a precious psychedelic butterfly. In this lineup of unique and bizarre solo talent, most performers would struggle to gain a foothold - but such is Bom's own very personal take on the psychedelic parable, have no doubt that his story is one that you will be compelled to experience, and which will leave you enriched.

Resident DJs Grindi & Sir Real will be nipping at the heels of reality in between the live music with an array of sonic glory that you can only dream of, and Edwardo will be providing his trademark visual stimuli to complete the sensory feast.

Drinks offers available on the bar.

£5 on the door, no messing.
