Thursday evening was more exciting than the usual going to a gig at newly revamped venue Cassette 9. Not sure what to expect of Swamptech duo Quintron and Miss Pussycat, it soon became a musical highlight for the year so far. Recent rumours made everyone curious to hear the handmade drum machine and keyboard Swamtech New Orleans boogie. Quintron's infamous Drum Buddy invention has been bought by the likes of Laurie Anderson Wilco and most recently Kanye West and when you look at the promo video you'll understand why. A sound you might describe as the B52s meets Electro Voodoo Blues and then deep fried in chicken grease and washed down with plenty of whiskey, the contagious energy and dance inducing duo had the audience enthusiastically joining in a conga line while chanting a chorus of Motherfucking Badass. The hour and a bit set, part of a whistle stop antipodean tour, left everyone wanting a lot more and hopefully they will come back soon if the whiskey doesn't get the better of them..... This plate is my tribute to a great night out, thanks Quintron and Miss Pussycat!
I've always made stuff and wanted to be an artist from the age of 14.I made my way to Art School in the late 80s and graduated with a BFA, majoring in Sculpture. After a short exhibiting career,I quickly discovered being a full time artist doesn't pay the bills, so went the commercial route.
I've worked in graphic design, audio visual and freelance set design as well as garden design and maintenance.In the mid 90s
my boyfriend and I got married at City Hall in Manhattan New York. We eloped actually as no-one knew until we were back home.I have two children, a boy Jasper and a girl Madison,named after Madison Avenue.
