Frogbelly and Symphony - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Frogbelly and Symphony
Lyrical excryations adjure the unafraid and the unadorned.
Tailoring surrealist tightropes,
Extensive forms merge with roots in traditional instrument playing.
Take the inspirational tint from many a dirgy folk legend,
And eggsamine the void into a shocktail of startled state and ecstasy.
Watch the end of the hibernation and resolve.

a first cluster of the raw new – Liz Hanley, Thomas Lebioda, Ben Trott, Ray Rizzo and Ally Fraser found a strong musical, emotional and intellectual connection that became the incitement and open field of imagination for Frogbelly and Symphony.

Based in Sheffield UK and Brooklyn NY the music reveals a stylistic repertoire that injects the indigenous workingman’s soul into the periphery of the bohemian metropolis. Ranging from post-punk and noise rock to theatrical poetry performance this new ensemble casts a coalescent process into the heart of the listener.

The five musicians took up intensive songwriting and arranging work in New York City and involved producer Martin Bisi in the creative process. – followed by a recording session at the fabled BC –Studio that has given no less than e.g. Sonic Youth, Swans, and Dresden Dolls the phonic garb of their earlier recordings.

“the EYE” - the first record taken from that session will be released on April 26th 2012. The release – tour will take the band across the UK and continental Europe from March to April 2012.
