Crabstock!

From the press release:

Get out your maps, because Fruits de Mer is heading for sunny Wales in April 2014!

Fruits de Mer and Sendelica announce an evening of acoustic and electric psychedelia featuring a great line-up of FdM artists.

After the success of our first live event – the 2013 summer all-dayer in London, FdM seeks out the Welsh connection with 8 hours of music at Cardigan’s warm and cozy Cellar Bar, home of the UFO Club, and all organised by the wonderful Sendelica!

Early-bird (/fish) tickets are just £10 and that includes a FDM GOODIE BAG to the first 100 people through the door (received on entry to venue) including an exclusive FdM compilation - and you know what the Borderline freebies have been selling for.

Sendelica will be playing a full electric set; they are, of course, Fruits de Mer regulars, featuring on many releases – from their stunning version of The Velvet Underground’s ‘Venus In Furs’ to a sidelong track on the strangefish series of albums.
(PROG magazine rated their new album #2 in their top 5 albums of 2013 as also featured in US Goldmine Magazine top albums of 2013)

Earthling Society will be playing a full electric set – they too have delivered a Fruits de Mer single as well as tracks on 2013’s strangefish set. Their latest album, Zodiak, was another of PROG magazine’s top 5 albums...”if Primal Scream covered Hawkwind, they’d sound like this”.

But that’s not all – there will also be acoustic sets by:

James McKeown – who, as well as leading Bristol’s Hi-Fiction Science, is a brilliant solo artist in his own right, contributing wonderfully atmospheric guitar+electronics tracks to the strangefish box set; James has been played regularly by Gideon Coe on his BBC 6 Music show.

Crystal Jacqueline – Jacqui’s forthcoming double 7” on Fruits de Mer will feature covers of songs by Curved Air, Mighty Baby and The Electric Prunes. Her latest album, Sun Arise was voted one of Goldmine magazine’s best albums of 2013.

Jack Ellister – Jack will be coming over from the Netherlands especially to open the festival (as he did for the Borderline event). Jack brings his new psych edge to songs by Syd Barrett, The Beatles and his own compositions - a smashing guy!

DJ Wally Stagg...... legendary vocalist on Sendelica's version of 'Journey To The Centre Of The Mind' released on FDM's Keep Off The Grass double LP..... he'll spend the evening spinning obscure psyche classics in between bands...... an aural treat.....

PLUS
Stalls selling exclusive Fruits de Mer vinyl and signed copies of releases by all the featured artists

PLUS
Crabstock – the CD – a limited-edition CD with tracks by all the artists appearing at Crabstock, limited to 250 copies and available exclusively on a first-come-first-served basis to people attending the festival – a future collectible, for sure.

AND
That Fruits de Mer Crabstock goodie-bag, which will include three free CDs, all Crabstock exclusives, including a new Fruits de Mer full-length promo CD

...all that for just 10 quid ADVANCE TICKET!!!
more details soon - I hope to see you there - it should be a good one!

Allan Holdsworth RIP – Surely in the list of artists who have contributed to the sound of modern music, there is a special spot for guitarist Allan Holdsworth. His name is known to virtually every student of the instrument in jazz and rock, and his style has been so widely emulated that it's hardly worth mentioning anymore — we can just assume that every guitarist has Holdsworth as an influence. » Read more
