The Horse Loom »
Where to start to describe The Horse Loom? The best acoustic guitar player in the country perhaps? The most unique marriage between British folk music, avant garde guitar playing and punk rock spirit? Certainly. Wonderful? Definitely. Under-rated? Reckon so...

Northumbrian guitarist and singer Steve Malley would doubtless be extremely embarrassed to read any of these things. That says a lot.

Steve played guitar in Crane in the early 90s, whose post-Husker Du take on The Byrds-meets-DC hardcore earned them a deserving reputation as one of the UK's finest live bands. He would go on to play in Kodiak, Four Frame and then most notably The Unit Ama. The Unit Ama existed in direct contrast to their (musical) peers from America.

The Horse Loom sees Steve take this approach and apply it to his love of folk music. Combining folk structures and melodies with his incredible guitar playing has made The Horse Loom something truly unique.

THE HORSE LOOM The Horse Loom is the name given to the music made by Northumbrian singer and guitarist Steve Malley. Between 1989 and the late 2000s, Malley was known as an electric guitarist and the driving force behind a trio of key post-hardcore bands: Crane, Four Frame and The Unit Ama. The range of recordings, performances and Peel Sessions they left behind display a forward-thinking aesthetic that was informed in equal parts by the intense scorch of Husker Du and Fugazi, the expansiveness of Sonny Sharrock and Pharoah Sanders, and the networked DIY activitism of Dischord Records. However, it’s his most recent work as a solo acoustic guitarist and singer that is perhaps the most surprising and the most rewarding. The Horse Loom emerged out of Malley’s retreat from touring and a re-exploration of his relationship with the communities, history and the landscape of his native Northumbria. Channelling the same extended, exploratory, on-the-edge quality of his guitarwork through an acoustic setting, he used this to frame a portfolio of truly extraordinary songs that combine mysticism with a very rooted, earthy reality. Added to that his rich, unaffected voice and you have something unique and special, and which has made The Horse Loom a word-of-mouth phenomenon to compare with fellow Tynesiders Richard Dawson and Nev Clay.

Since recording his debut self-titled (and so far only) album, Malley also founded the 12-piece Dark Northumbrian collective.

The opportunity to see him play outside the North-East is extremely rare: he last toured in 2009. Don’t miss this one.


Markers »
MARKERS are a guitar duo from London comprising of Jason Carty and Jodie Cox.n

Collectively, their musical history has seen them as founding members and collaborators with the likes of Narrows, Geiger Counter, Foe, Exes, Rohame, Art of Burning Water and Earth. However, this project is something different. Creating music without voice or rhythm section leaves them very exposed, focusing attention on how each note is wrung or coaxed for optimum emotional expression, and relying heavily on tone, dexterity and structuring.

Whilst a review of early guitar influences has bled into their sound, there is an obvious nod to cinema and the effect music has on steering images with sweetness, patience and intensity, both on the screen and in the mind’s eye.


Twenty-One Crows »
Dark, foreboding Alt-Folk from Brighton.

The band released a mini LP late last year on Endless Records entitled 'Workhouse Blues' and it is a sub-genre defining record of thunderous, earth-quaking, majestic ugly/beauty - Available on limited edition lathe-cut vinyl with individually produced, signed and numbered lino-cut artwork.
