Faux Fancy: Edwin R. Stevens
November 23 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Faux Fancy presents a night of live music with Edwin R. Stevens, who brings with him new album ‘God On All Fours’. Support Sam McLaughlin and Otis Jordan.
Edwin R. Stevens
What does it mean “to go straight?” How did Metallica get to ‘Nothing Else Matters’ after years of brutality? How did David Lynch come to tell his Straight Story? Like these artists, Edwin Stevens, long-time guitar mangler, distorted punk waste merchant and fecally-obsessed author has loped off his gnarly edges and protrusions to reveal something not straight, perhaps, but something approaching pure and recognisable. ‘God On All Fours’ is Stevens’ “straightest” album to date and by far his bravest and most approachable. Edwin R. Stevens’ “straight story” turns out to be a masterclass in storytelling.
Otis Jordan & Sam McLoughlin
Improvisational multi-instrumentalist Otis Jordan deftly collages together folk, psyche and jazz. Recent releases include his beautiful 2022 album, ‘Restless Guests’. Released on Them There records and recorded at Green Door Studio, Glasgow, this record saw Jordan working with Molly Linen, Finn Rosenbaum, Sam Mcloughlin and Dan Bridgewood-Hill for a single day session and of first takes only.
Sam A. McLoughlin is a songwriter and electronic artist from the North West of England, His music takes a cut and paste aesthetic, piecing together short sketches and home-recorded ideas into long tracks, mixing everything from wyrd folk, Kraut, tropicalia, experimentation and a strong DIY aesthetic.
McLoughlin has released four EPs on Folklore Tapes and is a regular contributor to the label’s compilations. He also records under the names Tongues Of Light, Samandtheplants (formerly with Alison Cooper of Magpahi) and N.Racker, and is a member of NeoTantrik.
