Max Syedtollan & Cank – Sunday 19th March 7:00pm
Glasgow-based experimental composer Max Syedtollan allies with feral performance troupe Cank (ft. Laf Tebano, Romy Danielewicz and Wormhook) for a 10-date tour of the UK, to tie in with the release of his new album ‘Disposables’ on 33-33.
Melding improvisation with mutant song-craft, the collaboration marks a departure from Syedtollan’s recent work in more classical territory. Melody, noise, text and movement collide in anarchic and unexpected formations that veer between hilarity and dread, and evade easy genre categorisation.
Recently featured by WIRE as a representative of underground music’s ‘new vaudeville’, Syedtollan has been releasing music since 2016 – including a string of tapes on Glasgow’s cult GLARC label. His live performances incorporate theatrical and comic elements, blurring the distinction between music and performance art.
This new collaboration with Cank explores the aesthetics of group dynamics – taking ‘the rock band’ as a cultural trope to be played about with, knocked apart and reconstructed in weird new forms.
