25 Years of Chocolate Monk: Red Brut + Lovely Honkey + Neil Campbell + Tindegger + Rust Ruus + F Ampism + Plastic Containers Of Nothing + Claire Potter + DJ Clive Graham

No Longer Available

Chocolate Monk celebrates its 25th year by asking you to come along and unravel the knot inside your head over two evenings of sound and chunder crunk.

Red Brut
Red Brut is the moniker of Marijn Verbiesen (part of Sweat Tongue and JSCA). As Red Brut she is isolated, displaying an ear for day-to-day sounds, musique concrète composition and spontaneous sound collage.

Lovely Honkey
Lovely Honkey is Luke Poot. Solo disappointment since 2007. Akin to a nervous breakdown whilst self aggrandising, face mouth tactile shod and tapes, elbow deep embarrassment. Recently seen collaborating in Clappy Shandy Dads, Skatgobs, Honkeyzontal Picnic, et al.

Neil Campbell
Neil Campbell has been active on the lunatic fringe of underground music since at least 1979. In that time he has performed and recorded widely as solo performer, ad hoc collaborator and core member of groups such as Vibracathedral Orchestra, A Band and Astral Social Club. His collaborations are myriad, including Richard Youngs, Campbell Kneale, High Wolf, Grumbling Fur, John Clyde-Evans, Filthy Turd, Oren Ambarchi, Ashtray Navigations, Spider Stacy, David Larcher, Blood Stereo, John Olson and Matthew Bower. Writers have described him variously as "a one-man subculture", a "grandfather figure" with "hallucinogenically inclined pallet". Neil shares his birthday with Grace Jones, Malcolm X, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot and Joey Ramone - LOOKOUT!

Do we even know what we do? I mean us, those guys on stage... Do you know
what we do? Can you tell us, please. Be different.
Different? Do they mean, an individual?
life is just boring...
What are we doing?
I dinnae ken, pal. I thought you had an idea.
I can’t think right now, I am too busy to think about that now. Can you not
bring some tapes, some synths, any of your cluttered shite?
Like that thing,... Whats that?
Crusty underpants.
Can we not just play... collectivity is a social space.
Tindegger is Tina Krekels and Grant Smith.

Plastic Containers Of Nothing
Small batch, artisan duo from Brighton, UK.Specialists in entrepreneurial investment, agricultural light industry, intimacy workshops, private party planning, personal shopping and much more. Not music.

Rust Ruus
Stuart Arnot has been peddling his wrong sound wares for some time now via Acrid Lactations, Barbarians, Urine Gagarin, Ghost Of A Octopus etc. Rust Ruus finds hime breaking out the mind mead in a solo context and presenting a big bowl of head scratch. No refunds.

F. Ampism uses samples/synths/percussion to create warm, immersive sound collage. As well as the Chocolate Monk label, he has releases on Ikuisuus, Lal Lal Lal, Tutore Burlato, Beartown and Giant Tank. Recently he contributed sounds to the latest Kemialliset Ystavat LP "Siipi Empii", and is currently working on collaborations with Fritz Welch, Stuart Chalmers and Bart De Paepe. He has a monthly radio show, "The Infinite Inward" on Resonance Extra. There are dots to be joined.

Claire Potter
Merseyside artist Claire Potter writes 'rough brilliant stuff' around sex, gender, violence, and adolescence, with a 'queasy mix of atmospheres'.
