Gig Description

Anne Pigalle– Parisienne teenager Anne Pigalle hung out with Glen Matlock and other British punks back in Paris then brought her music to Anglo-Saxon rock & roll and the late punk scene en Londres. Working legendary club nights in the late ’80s at Café de Paris and Madame Jojos, she then disappeared to California and created a music-film project in LA with Donald Cammell. Back in London Pigalle reinvented herself as a painter, photographer, performance and multi-media artist ( Amérotica ,  Ecstase). From cold wave chanson to post punk jazz Anne’s music and vocal delivery is always esoteric, astounding and exciting… and that’s before we get on to the remarkable erotic poetry. Tonight Anne Pigalle showcases her superb new album L’Ecstase. ‘Engaging, exotic, alluring, the self styled Last Chanteuse sighs and emotes a world weary ennui. Snatched glimpse of old Soho refracted through an absinthe haze. Glorious, libertine, intoxicating…’ Classic Rock June 2019.  This evening we also give you two of the finest burlesque dancers (Marquissa Darq,  Dolly Blow Up) and Mai Butoh Dance artist Mai Nguyen Tri ,  Franco Vietnamese dance seen thru an Anglo French post urban lens. Plus stunning performance art  from Julie Rose who explores the body as mise en scene.Using experimental music,  innovative narrative form and fragments of sound and image deployed in live collages that create uncanny meanings and unexpected humour.  Also the amazing Rude Mechanicals, tonight playing as a duo- artful jazzbo slinkiness and cabaret poetics and brilliantly off kilter but accessible vocalising from the remarkable front woman Miss Joe RobertsRotten Bliss– the remarkable work of one Jasmine Pender, a cellist and so much more… ‘violent, warm and weird visions’, yes… equally inspired by the wild physicality of Jacqueline du Pre and the shrieking glory of a cello played through FX pedals, Rotten Bliss packs diverse influences into an elemental voyage, raging from tender a capella lyrical fantasies through to ecstatic nihilism. And can sometimes be seen performing in 11th Hour Adventists (with Jowe Head, ex-Swell Maps) and False Echo (with Tim Bowen, ex-Chrome Hoof).  Her debut album, The Nightwatchman Sings, was released in October 2017 on the Reverb Worship label. STOP PRESS Addition to the bill- very pleased to welcome Gina Birch along to this happening. The Raincoats’ guitarist/vocalist will be performing a bespoke set tonight .
