We are pleased to say that we are returning to our favourite little sweat box in London, VogueFabricsDalston!!! We are ecstatic to be bringing you the seminal and awe inspiring Sterling Roswell. We feel he requires no introduction but here are some choice clippings from his facebook description:
"Lavishing in pop structures but drawing in myriad influences to the wondrous black hole, The Call Of The Cosmos features some shimmering spaciousness but also sleazy exotica-themes, not unlike a Lee Hazelwood production infected with Joe Meek's ghost. Roswell's own songwriting and voice recalls a solar-fried Bobby Gillespie, an artist he no doubt originally influenced with the Spacemen 3. Elsewhere, there's truly psychedelic excursions into outsiderdom which come off like The Seeds mutating ever larger into lysergic-dipped monsters."
Any attempt to categorize Sterling Roswell, runs the risk of misrepresenting a true radical. Artist, musician, poet and producer, Roswell is all of these and more and over the years he has embraced a myriad of artistic forms to great effect.
"Baudelaire once wrote, 'music excavates heaven'. Listen to this record and you might just have to agree." ANDREW WEATHERALL / MOJO
"Think Lee Hazelwood produced by Joe Meek - perfectly realised and revealing a commercial side to Roswell previously unheard / viewed through the lens of Syd Barrett and Kevin Ayers " LOIS WILSON / MOJO
"ROSCO uses his knowledge of the music, acid and crucial fundamentals of the genre to create a mini-masterpiece" KRIS NEEDS / SHINDIG
"A topside full of pulsing spectral tunes and a flipside like a '60s sci-fi soundtrack mixed with 'Echoes' of Pink Floyd. An otherworldly delight!" MARK ELLEN
We also have a very special accompanying the stage but we will reveal the secrets behind our mystery closer to the day.
