Fantastic young man

Matt Miles Dixon - Infrasonic Nature EP front cover

Matt Miles Dixon - shared a bill with him on Friday at The George in Leeds, his style was reminiscent of Durutti Column - acoustic guitar with loops, detached vocals, songwriting with dronelike qualities.

There is a fine EP of his available for free, released on the Hremig label. As well as elements of the above, this release has bits of the more psychedelic end of noise music in there.

Play Patterns weekender in Leeds


Saturday will be a good'un - us Norman Manly types, Black Moth (new Bacchae band), Bad For Lazarus (Rich Fownes, ex-With Scissors & current Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster) & The Horn The Hunt (good electronic styles, woman and man in costume).

Legion of who?

Legion of Swine is one of the pseudonyms of Dave Procter, a senior lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan University and is his solo semi-improv noise act. He also goes under the name of Pilotgatan, Monotron and manTank and is a member of noise/electro/spoken word/drone/improv 5 piece You'll Learn and political bluegrass/folk/skiffle band Redgrass. He's also a DJ, a live sound engineer, and a studio engineer.

He is always looking for gigs, for whichever act.

Monotron and Pilotgatan are ambient noise acts and manTank is acoustic miserycore.

Free download from Roll Deep

So now they are making like Tinchy and giving away grime for free whilst putting out chart bangers. Plenty of grime fans will have a sour face on about people doing this, but fuck it. #1 single Good Times was ace, follow-up Green Light was ace and free download Say No More is ace. Flow Dan and Manga sound shithot on here.


Leeds power violence featuring members of Closure, Normal Man and shits.
