Cavern of Anti-Matter is the new project by Stereolab guitarist Tim Gane. Prior to the release of their album Blood-Drums on Berlin label Grautag the band will give an intimate live show at Monarch in Berlin.
Support comes from Grautag labelsmates Günter Schickert and Pharoah Chromium plus a DJ set by Ghazi Barakat.
Tim Gane was guitarist and Joe Dilworth the original drummer in the groop Stereolab. They formed Cavern of Anti-Matter to record a dystopian future music LP for the Berlin based Grautag label. The LP “blood-drums” will be released in a double vinyl format on Grautag in June 2013. The band is essentially a power trio, but without any discernible dynamics and the music is mainly electronic and heavily treated. Some idea of the sound may be gleaned from the bands influences which include David Bowie’s “Chant Of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family”, Mahogany Brain’s “Bloody Hide And Seek In The Rain” and “Hot Milk Elbow” and the front cover to Heldon 6.
Cavern of Anti-Matter | LIVE @ CTM 2013
GÜNTER SCHICKERT is a musician born in Berlin and a protagonist of the Berliner Schule that emerged in clubs like the Zodiac, Sun and Magic Cave. Mr. Schickert released two albums on Brain and Sky in the 1975 and 1980, “Samtvogel” and “Überfällig”. The albums featured a psychedelic sound with a cosmic touch. The pieces were lengthy with complex layers of rhythmic-harmonic sequences, expansive echoes and reverberation -extrapolated improvisations. A great trip!
PHAROAH CHROMIUM is the solo project of Berlin artist Ghazi Barakat – A project of a mutoid post krautrock, psychedelism ambiant, and anxious landscapes. Heat wave, half coma, and clammy matress. Dusty landscape on the Terminal beach, the Fata morgana become oil wells on fire.
