Club Mutante with Sense Fracture, Maxwell Sterling + Kenichi Iwasa

Club Mutante bring a night of live music featuring

Sense Fracture (Haunter Records)

Haunter co- founder, DJ, producer and writer Francesco Birsa Alessandri, under his Sense Fracture alias, launches a call to arms to all resisting forces and collective efforts for progress, freedom and equality, riding a punishing, uncompromising sound through an unquiet harmonic body: hard-edged yet unapologetic about its own vulnerability. The dancefloor’s potential for political affirmation and the ambivalent nature of escapism are the forces that sharpen the Fracture. Channeling the writings of Kathy Acker, Amy Ireland and Mark Fisher as well as bits of rave extremism, breakcore, dub, grime and trap, Alessandri aims to reflect and infect reality by challenging the structure of conventional club narratives. It is by enhancing the nonlinear, abrasive qualities dwelling between the beats that They build a critique of language and power relations.

Maxwell Sterling & Kenichi Iwasa (The Death of Rave - Stolen Recordings)

Kenichi Iwasa and Maxwell Sterling first began playing music together with Naima Karlsson and Neneh Cherry, celebrating the art and music of Don and Moki Cherry. Through their love of improvised music and interest in obfuscating genres and traditions, they began collaborating on various performances- from catwalk shows for Louise Gray, to performance work with Linder Sterling. Kenichi Iwasa is known for his legendary Krautrock Karaoke night as well as being a sought after collaborator throughout Europe. Maxwell Sterling is a composer and sound artist, releasing his debut album, ‘Hollywood Medieval’ in 2017.

Broshuda (Haunter Records)

Cross-pollinating a wide textural range of influences, Broshuda's music incorporates elements of sound art, electroacoustic techniques, chopped spoken word dissections and field recorded material, as well as more rhythmically oriented and noise-heavy excursions. Though kaleidoscopically varied, the work is held together by a playful sense of experimentation and a willingness to explore new directions of sound through an experimental approach and the use of freeform production techniques to expand and further his already broad sonic palette.

Ewa Awe (NRG)

To Live & Die in Rayleigh

To Live and Die in Rayleigh is the distillation of two young, virile Essex lads who've interpreted the grey dying new towns, the slick flawless haircuts, and the lads and lasses of the aforementioned British province, through harsh electronics and an undying love for classic rock n roll anthems such as Baba O'Riley. Equal parts necessary and irrelevant, this live show is the closest you'll probably get to picking up off Mitch Barnes without having his number.

Open from 18.00 - 02.30

£5 OTD

Pétra & Hinako Omori

PéTRA is a new collaboration between Brian Allen Simon (aka Anenon) and Chantal Chadwick. The duo’s debut album Aunis (released September 2019), incorporated ambient soundscapes and abstract vibrations. Written, performed, produced, and recorded on the volcanic island of Nisyros, Greece, the project was inspired by the photography of Daniel Boudinet, and the geological topology of the island. 

HINAKO OMORI is a London-based musician from Japan with a love for synthesizers and interesting sounds. As a pianist/keyboard player and programmer, Hinako has worked with artists like Georgia, Kate Tempest, KT Tunstall, James Bay, Jaakko Eino Kalevi and Ellie Goulding. Auraelia is the first time Hinako has released an EP of her own. After delving into a hard drive of instrumental archive material, a hazy, transformational sound was born.

Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue are London-via-Brighton indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young. Founded in 2007, the band have released three albums on Wichita Recordings, and toured with the likes of Jack White, Local Natives and First Aid Kit. After a three year break - during which Rosa and Katy have been performing with all-female Deep Throat Choir - their new album Slow Fade is an apt comeback, as a melancholy celebration of patience. With sounds that conjure a hazy breakup feeling, one that hangs lazily, over the days you know you aren't ok yet.

Open from 18.00 - 23.00

Palingenesis by Simona Sharafudinov



Have you ever mistook desire for love? Pain for pleasure? Sex for intimacy? Hope for a promise? Symbolic for the real? Tapping into the sensitivity and vibration of the moment to let go and fall into an active volcano; enduring simultaneous death and birth.

Wounded shapes leaning against walls are part of a new body of work by artist Simona Sharafudinov, as she continues her explorative devotion to the sentience of being through image-making. In this new series of works: drawings, paintings and moving images, is a silent disclosure, an emptying of impressions and failures in desire, intimacy and love. To mark raw hurt is to give thanks to intense joy.  In error begins truth.

Volcanoes & Regret

Exhibition open: Tuesday-Sunday 12:00-18:00 (closed Mondays)

Volcanoes & Regret is the culmination of a three-year project that pivots around the act of burning human regrets in volcanoes. 

First undertaken in 2017 when Ramsay drove from the north of Scotland to mt Etna in his old Volvo, Vulva, then again in 2018 on the remote volcanic peninsula of Kamchatka,

Volcanoes & Regret is George's first solo exhibition. It includes films, a publication, a live sound installation & Vulva encased in a volcano proof suit.

The project brings together artists, each responding to the project in their own inimitable way.

George will be collaborating with Nina Lopez for the sculptural installation V is for Volvo, Vulva, Volcano, and with Erik Perera to create Volcano Lover, 

a sonic installation responsive to live volcanic data using an array of sound making machines, often of domestic and/or geological bent.


The latter will continue to develop throughout the exhibition period.

Two main events (eruptions) will aim to both elucidate and obscure the work with live performances, talks, screenings and so on.

EVENT: 26 October: First Eruption — 

7pm - midnight

an evening of ritual, music, audio visual collage, poetry and southern Italian food. 

George will be joined by renowned eco poet CA Conrad, electronic composer Coby Sey, video artists Rebecca Salvadori & Leah Walker and poet & sound artist Nasim Luczaj. 

It will be an evening of new live work made in response to the project.

A celebration of weakness as strength.

EVENT: 25th November: Last Eruption


an evening of talks and screenings. 

Including a talks from volcanologist Prof. David Pyle, (and others tba) 

and films Book of Regrets: For Kamchatka and the PBS documentary about legendary volcanologists, Katia & Maurice Krafft ‘The Volcano Watchers’. 

Accompanied with vodka.

The Time I Thought that the Devil Actually Wore Prada

At the Sauna
Stool slips
Floor slaps
Stabs spine
Sets it to stone

I don’t get sick pay
I might still be able to do my next booking

Dragged into the ambulance
Receiving painkillers instead of a dismissal letter
What’s your name?
I've never had this many painkillers
Are you male or female?
I've never had this many painkillers
Emergency contact?
I've never had this many painkillers in my life
Yeah we give this stuff to women in labour it's strong

summertime sadness
Meat as painkiller not addressing the real problem
I’m a veggie eating an emotional ham and cheese toastie
On the runway

I mean in the waiting room
Turning a blind eye to my income falling short
And still not having enough work
To be buying toasties

Left is right

Right is wrong
I don't get sick pay
Right is left
And right is wrong
Why don’t I get more painkillers

Receiving a dismissal letter instead of 6 painkillers
Signed Sauna Boss
Sent to Manager’s Manager as photo
Forwarded to me via text


Like a love resignation letter
To someone I hate hating
Posturing as a love letter

I wanted to be a cake
But you didn't want to bake it

I shoot an arrow then paint the bullseye
But Wait don't shoot the messenger
Or else she’ll eat my sandwich
And my homework
Then you replied
Yea is really painful
I hope u are okay However also
Story reminds of me Japanese
厄落とし or 厄払い which work for
Bad luck exorcize your accumulated bad luck
