in two weeks time

the launch party of the split album by Grimm Grimm and Tapers will be held at Cafe Oto in london on 25th may. the night features live performances by Grimm Grimm, Tapers' Gustav Rye's solo, and as an opening act, 5 Seconds Exposure, Bo Ningen's Yuki's solo project. don't miss the earliest opportunity to get copies of the split.

you can get advance tickets for the show from here.

Grimm Grimm is the acid-folk solo project of Koichi Yamanoha, a London-based Tokyo native and former 1/3 of cult psychedelic punks Screaming Tea Party. With Yamanoha as the lynch pin, Grimm Grimm features a shifting line-up of collaborators that includes Le Volume Corbe and members of Chrome Hoof, Let's Wrestle and fellow Japanese ex-pats Bo Ningen. Packed with hooks, the Grimm Grimm sound mixes the melancholic beauty and noise of Nico, the soundscapes of Eno and the melodies of The Beatles with baroque flourishes and a passing nod the otherworldly pop sensibility of Joe Meek. 

Gustav Rye is a musician and researcher based in London. He trained under respected sound engineer Paul 'Groucho' Smykle, and has since gone on to work with artists such as Baaba Maal and Tony Allen. Working primarily with bass guitar and electronics, Gustav is one half of the duo TAPERS alongside composer Simon Kinch. Together, they combine rewired tape machines with a palette of instrumental and synthesised sounds. A track from their first releaseTEXT (Already Dead Tapes) was selected by one of the biggest British independent music websites The 405 as Track of the Week. 

Bo Ningen guitarist Yuki Tsujii's solo project 5 Seconds Exposure is some of the most beautiful and floating music we can hear in current music scene in London. His guitar with monochrome melody and sea-foam feedback take the listener on a calm, mystical voyage to a sleepy, forgotten place in time.
