AboutLimbo presents a night of music and noise in the anarchic Mayday spirit.
Ampersand formed in 2001 in South London, taking influence from This Heat, Throbbing Gristle and Stockhausen. While they are interested in the sounds of 80's industrial experimentalists such as Einstürzende Neubauten, their approach is different; fully improvised and incorporating the serial âmisuse' of various equipment and heavy machinery.
Support comes from Mothax (London), whose industrial noise is created with modified and home-made instruments; Sky:Lark (Margate/London), local post-hardcore sandblasters recently expanded to a four-piece; and Tikoloshe (Canterbury).
Mothax currently has no music online
