Appearing at Burst festival

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on May 11, 2009

Hot on the heels of my pecha kucha debut at Peachy Coochie I am flattered to be asked to cooch it again. David Gale brings his night of 20 slides for 20 seconds to the Burst Festival at Battersea Arts Centre. So I shall be doing a rerun.

Can you be heckled about typefaces? Seems the answer is yes since I was asked “Where is microgramma?” Pecha Kucha is an unforgiving format, in the end old favourites had to go in favour of a broad historical overview. All of this will make perfect sense if you have seen the presentation, or indeed come along to

The omission of microgramma could be deemed ironic given I used it as the base in creating the logo for Spceco.




Coming across like an infusion of My Bloody Valentine and the Cocteau Twins, Spceco are purveyors of nugaze, or dreampop to you. Their debut album is out and can be purchased by paying as little or as much as you want. They, like a lot of bands have come to the realisation that revenue streams don’t come from CDs anymore. The topic is too broad to diverge into here but the band have written about their feelings on the subject. Stateside people can buy an actual CD from here. Personally I make a habit of seeing any band I like play live so dosh goes into their pocket, least one can do.

Below is their fantastic single “You’re alright” which can be brought from iTunes.

And speaking of playing live, I am delighted to be sharing the stage with John Hegley on Friday, perhaps a much better reason to purchase a ticket.
