Fuck Off Batman + Weavels + The BBC

£12 £10 Advance £5 MEMBERS

The Bohman Brothers present three trios: nine different people, eighteen different nostrils.

Fuck Off Batman

Hugh Metcalfe, guitar & gas mask
Stanley Bad, electric bass
Jim Le Baigue, drums

Three gentlemen of the road stop by Café Oto this evening. As they enter, one of them marks the door jamb with the sign of the cross. They proceed to play their singular brand of parlour music to an appreciative audience.

Weavels

Mick Beck, bassoon and a variety of whistles
Chris Cundy, bass clarinet
Alex Ward, electric guitar

Weavels consist of two low register woodwind instruments, one of a single reed variety, and the other of the double reed variety, with amplified electric guitar. You could say they combine an old fashioned sensibility of wood panelling with abrasions of cheese wire. Mick Beck describes it as a group which is humorous but intricately purposeful, and Ken Waxman in his Jazz Word review (July 2011) said "Weavels' watchword is textural collaboration, not blustering bravado."

The BBC

Richard Crow, computer & voice
Adam Bohman, amplified & voice
Jonathan Bohman, amplified & voice

The BBC was formed on the 18th October 1922. The first director, John Reith, summarised its purpose as threefold: to inform, to educate and to entertain. Now, almost 100 years later, a different BBC (Bohman, Bohman, Crow) seeks to embody those principles in a noumenistic way. Adam Bohman, the informer. Richard Crow, the educator. Jonathan Bohman, the entertainer.
