Some great new collaborations, and a long awaited soloist this week at MIUC. Pete Warden has been making some pretty strange instruments in recent times, and performing on them under the name of Onion Engine. For this show, he has recruited his comrades from Electric Jellyfish, along with some additional guests, to let the psychedelic, outsider-garde sonics fly. World Grind Domination, features some of our favourite avant metalists in a new double voice/double blastbeat quartet. Brutal! And Harriet Morgan with her signature, abstracted black-metal-inspired grimcore solo project.
• Onion Engine, featuring: Pete (ticks, pots and bits of tin), Adam (low strings and wires), Jake (bill the modified guitar and tuna tins), Mike (high screechy strings)
• World Grind Domination, featuring: Pete Hyde (voice), Brad Smith (drums), Max Kohane (drums) and Nik Kennedy (voice)
• HKM, AKA: Harriet K Morgan (blackened bass and tape collage)
