The Gallery Pres. Thomas Gold
Friday 27th June 2014
Ministry of Sound, 103 Gaunt St, Elephant and Castle
The Gallery prepares for big room bliss and wonky bass lines, welcoming our very own Electric Dream Machine! Starting with Thomas Gold at the controls, whose wealth of party productions is bound to have the Box jumping! Signed to Axwells prestigious Axtone label plus other notable releases on Spinnin and Toolroom, it's this energetic formula which optimises the signature Thomas Gold sound. Its what rocked Ministry of Sound back in March, and led to other notable headline gigs in Asia and Miami this year.

Jay Hardway is the latest success story, from the renowned Dutch school of E D M. With productions endorsed by the worlds No.1 Hardwell and Martin Garrix, a 2013 collaboration with the latter arguably catapulted Jay to global stardom. Aptly entitled Wizard, it implies the magical presence which Hardway commands behind the decks. Boundless energy means an imposing stage presence, which amplifies his mix of fizzing riffs and crazy pitch bends into one devastating dance floor package.

Finally Ashley Wallbridge, well known to The Gallery after making his debut in 2010. August 2013 being his previous visit, Ashley has since successfully made a name in America with forward thinking, genre blurring productions that stay true to his trademark uplifting ethos. See reworks of the seminal anthems Greece 2000 and Airwave, plus more recently Lights and Thunder by Gareth Emery, for an indication of the carnage to ensue.

Performing Live:

UNEARTH -- https://www.facebook.com/unearthofficial TEXAS IN JULY -- https://www.facebook.com/texasinjulyband CRUEL HAND -- https://www.facebook.com/cruelhand ARMED FOR APOCOLYPSE -- https://www.facebook.com/armedforapocalypse

With DJ:

Rob Metal

Unearth: Metalcore is a stubborn genre, and one that should never change. Luckily for tried and true death metal and metal core fans, we have Unearth to be its champion. For more than 15 years, Unearth has been staying true to the heavy metal genre that birthed them. Metal is their craft, and they do it with an attention to detail rivaled only by the dark brutality of their output. Part homage to legends like Pantera and At The Gates, part amendment to classic subgenres like Swedish death metal and early metalcore, and part uniquely Unearth, the band has never wavered in their grittiness, darkness, or their ability to excite the audience of headbangers (seriously, they've opened for metal legends Testament and easily held their own). Unearth features a death growling lead singer along with some stellar clean vocals and backing vocals from one of their two guitarists. They've got the low end down pat, solos galore, the soul of thrash metal egging them onwards, and enough stage antics for everyone. The band directly engages the audience (you will be sweated upon, front row) and leaps around the stage with wild abandon, antics that are true to the ethos of heavy metal, adding some levity to an already amped up live show. You get the feeling that these guys would be just as stoked to play someone's rowdy basement party as they would be opening up an arena festival -- they are genuine protectors of the faith (aka metal).

Texas In July: Emotional, earnest, raw, and truthful, Texas In July is a metalcore band from, you guessed it, Pennsylvania. Mixing soaring clean vocals reminiscent of emo-alternative rock of the early 2000s with guttural, growling lead vocals that shake your soul, Texas In July creates a moody yet fun blend of all things metalcore. Four boys decided to form Texas In July during their high school days and still have plenty of that youthful energy left to share with their fans. Constant touring has allowed these dudes to form a tight rapport and easy songwriting connection, despite a few line-up changes. Motifs such as transition, Christianity, and faith, mingle with the harder elements such as angry vocals, super powerful, forceful drumming, and in your face guitar. The band has got the technicality of the music down, both on record and throughout their aggressive live show, but also embraces groovin' out and jumping around on stage -- you can tell they're having fun and doing what they want to be doing. The crowd certainly picks up on the Texas In July attitude, and responds with unencumbered dancing. Every breakdown (and there are many) is a chance to jump up and waive your fists with glee.

Cruel Hand: From the tranquil wilderness of Portland, Maine, comes a decidedly un-tranquil band: Cruel Hand. Equal parts thrash, hardcore, and metal, Cruel Hand brings a devastating and brutal sound to every record and live show. The five piece haven't turned their back on fun, despite the deep heaviness of the music. Hair flies, sweat pours, and music pounds as Cruel Hand wails and growls. The band has played huge festival stages and small rooms with equal vigor - their energy, complete with rowdy stomping around stage and singing directly into the crowd, is big enough to capture any crowd. Dual guitars, excellent drumming, and lots of headbanging bring the audience some of the feeling from classic days of hardcore. Don't be surprised if their blend of thrashy hardcore inspires a mosh pit, just get out of the way.

Armed for Apocolypse: What exactly is Armed For The Apocalypse armed with? Heavy, heavy metal. You won't find any clean choruses or slightly happy tunes coming from this five piece from Chico, Ca. Hell, you'll only hear loud, aggressive, dark, and dangerous songs that rumble along at a dirge then switch to fast pace single chords and blast beats. Three guitars make for quite a heavy sound, especially when tuned down and pissed off. There's nothing more evil sounding than the growl emitted by Armed For The Apocalypse's singer -- as if he was calling some demons to his side. With dark lyrics and song titles that speak of demons, world ending, and, a personal favorite, "You Are Alive When They Start To Eat You," make no mistake: Armed For The Apocalypse is intensely, brutal, gory, and ready to explode your eardrums.

[OT]? Replacing 1/4" jack on amplified acoustic guitar.
I have a Takamini Classical with a preamp/effects unit
built in. I plugged in a cheap cord, and the tip came
of into the jack, which is a metal completely enclosed
unit. I don't see much hope of retrieving the offending
piece of metal, so the amp has remained unused for quite
a while.

I ordered a replacement jack that was supposed to be
a direct replacement, and indeed, it looks just the same.
I soldered the new jack on with care. I made nice clean
joints and everything looked great.

Now, the effects unit is supposed to power on when you
insert something into the phone jack. This fails to
happen now. I tried fresh batteries, but no luck.

The audio jack is wired to a stereo 1/8" phone plug
that plugs into the effects unit. I unplugged that
phone plug and tested tip/ring/sleeve, which all
tested good going out the the 1/4" jack which I stuck
a TRS cable into for testing. There are no shorts, and
the tip and ring connect distinctly to their counterparts
at the 1/4" end.

But the effects unit will not turn on. What does it expect
to see? Normally, I can plug anything into the 1/4" jack,
and its presence turns on the unit. Now, no dice. I'm
wondering what to try now. What is it that normally turns
the effects on? I wonder whether I shorted the wrong pair
in the jack by having that rogue tip stuck in there for so
long.

Thanks,

Toby

Brooding, country folk. Chalklens voice can haunt you for days. " Berna
Camelot Lounge, 19 Marrickville Road Marrickville NSW 2204

Led by world famous Gypsy guitarist Stochelo Rosenberg, this elite trio is the young and upgraded alter ego to the legendary Rosenberg Trio.

After touring the world for 25 years with his band "The Rosenberg Trio", Stochelo felt it was time to explore wider territories than the traditional Django Reinhardt / Gypsy Jazz classics and style, and to make room for upcoming new talent. In a musical family such as the Rosenbergs, where uncles, parents and grandparents had gained local and regional fame since the early 1900's as violin players and Guitarists, it was no big deal for Stochelo to find the ideal partners to develop a new repertoire, and to welcome two brilliant soloists to move on along with him.

Sbastien Giniaux, originating from Paris, France, is one of the outstanding young musicians of the city of lights. Classically trained as a cello player since his childhood days, this young virtuoso discovered Django Reinhardt and guitar playing at the age of 18. Immediatly picking up the instrument, he taught himself to play in a remarkably fast way, adding balkanic influences and classical feel to his vision of Django's playing, resulting in an absolutely unique musical talent. After a first recording with some other young players from Paris ("Selmer 607"), his name was instantly established alongside the most seasoned veterans of gypsy jazz, and he began to play concerts worldwide in various formations, while continuing to compose, arrange and play, both in his own projects and in other bands such as the legendary Taraf De Haidouks, to name but one. His personality, musicality and sense of humor combine perfectly with Stochelo's own, offering an unprecedented alliance.

Joel Locher, a long time student of Ulrich Lau in Stuttgart, then soloist of the Stuttgart Youth Chamber Orchestra and of the international Bach Festival Orchestra, kept a growing interest in Jazz and Gypsy Jazz while following his classical training and early career. Meeting and playing with Germany's top gypsy and Jazz musicians such a as Titi Winterstein, Olivia Trummer and alongside some more unexpected performers inlcuding Pee Wee Ellis and Tania Maria, his journeys across europe brought him often to Holland where he was adopted by the Rosenberg clan after countless all-night jam sessions. He has just recorded a CD with Stochelo and virtuoso pianist Jermaine Landsberger, entitled "Gypsy today" which will also hit the stores mid 2013.

These three together offer a crossfire of unbelievable solos, breathtaking rhythms and constant inventivity, each one pushing this fresh new team to new heights and contributing to an unprecedented display of both musicality and virtuosity, melted together with the gypsy sense of entertainment. If you liked Stochelo's playing before, you will love this brand new power trio.

"...one of the best gypsy guitarists out there, known for his beautiful tone and touch... From jazz to heavy metal, adding flamenco and Latin rhythms to his repertoire"

Corpse Poser: Drew Daniel Tackles Authenticity and Black Metal Politics on His Strange New Album as The Soft Pink Truth

Drew Daniel is halfway through swallowing a pill when he answers our Skype call in his Baltimore, Maryland home. He wonders aloud if the effects will become noticeable during our conversation about his latest solo album produced as The Soft Pink Truth. (A record comprising weird electronic covers of classic black metal songs, the LP is called Why Do the Heathen Rage? and is being presented with the subtitle Electronic Profanations of Black Metal Classics.) Just the idea of chatting about black metal, queer theory, authenticity, and leftfield dance music with one of contemporary electronic music's sharpest minds is enticing enough, but doing so while he's on something feels like striking gold. He announces his excitement to be going on tour with his long-standing experimental duo Matmos, playing a show in Brooklyn with Oneohtrix Point Never (then DJing its afterparty with his good friend Bjork), and attending his adopted hometown's Deathfest, billed as "America's biggest annual metal party," all of which are scheduled in the weeks following our interview. Having taken the pill though, it would seem that maybe Daniel has decided to start the party a little early.

In a musical family such as the Rosenbergs, where uncles, parents and grandparents had gained local and regional fame since the early 1900's as violin players and Guitarists, it was no big deal for Stochelo to find the ideal partners to develop a new repertoire, and to welcome two brilliant soloists to move on along with him.

Sbastien Giniaux, originating from Paris, France, is one of the outstanding young musicians of the city of lights. Classically trained as a cello player since his childhood days, this young virtuoso discovered Django Reinhardt and guitar playing at the age of 18. Immediatly picking up the instrument, he taught himself to play in a remarkably fast way, adding balkanic influences and classical feel to his vision of Django's playing, resulting in an absolutely unique musical talent. After a first recording with some other young players from Paris ("Selmer 607"), his name was instantly established alongside the most seasoned veterans of gypsy jazz, and he began to play concerts worldwide in various formations, while continuing to compose, arrange and play, both in his own projects and in other bands such as the legendary Taraf De Haidouks, to name but one. His personality, musicality and sense of humor combine perfectly with Stochelo's own, offering an unprecedented alliance.

Joel Locher, a long time student of Ulrich Lau in Stuttgart, then soloist of the Stuttgart Youth Chamber Orchestra and of the international Bach Festival Orchestra, kept a growing interest in Jazz and Gypsy Jazz while following his classical training and early career. Meeting and playing with Germany's top gypsy and Jazz musicians such a as Titi Winterstein, Olivia Trummer and alongside some more unexpected performers inlcuding Pee Wee Ellis and Tania Maria, his journeys across europe brought him often to Holland where he was adopted by the Rosenberg clan after countless all-night jam sessions. He has just recorded a CD with Stochelo and virtuoso pianist Jermaine Landsberger, entitled "Gypsy today" which will also hit the stores mid 2013.

These three together offer a crossfire of unbelievable solos, breathtaking rhythms and constant inventivity, each one pushing this fresh new team to new heights and contributing to an unprecedented display of both musicality and virtuosity, melted together with the gypsy sense of entertainment. If you liked Stochelo's playing before, you will love this brand new power trio.

"...one of the best gypsy guitarists out there, known for his beautiful tone and touch... From jazz to heavy metal, adding flamenco and Latin rhythms to his repertoire"
- Andreas ?-berg (Swedish Guitarist)
