Sad Machine presents… The Last Whole Earth Catalog, Big World, Crazy Paving

August 1 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Sad Machine returns after a year in the wilderness, feeling cool n cosy in its new digs at The Ivy House. Joined by The Last Whole Earth Catalog, Big World and Crazy Paving.

No-one turned away for lack of funds.

The Last Whole Earth Catalog:

The Last Whole Earth Catalog is a free form, stream of consciousness, meta jazz, joke on the bubblegum wrapper experiential timepiece, with the minute hand ticking on and the hour hand on whatever time is

Big World:

From the remnants of Kraf Twerk (George Tavern Halloweekender and My Life is Big NYE), emerges a new synth odyssey: Big World. Channeling the raw power of MIDI technology, Big World will transform the very fabric of electronic music.

Crazy Paving:

“Crazy Paving is a fun way to arrange stones, bricks, or concrete in a mix-and-match style” – patiopavings.co.uk.

Crazy Paving debuted last year with two Eps (‘Country Songs for the City’ and ‘Habit Hole’) and is the name under which Robbie Carman writes and releases music. Though the songs sound like complaints, they are more of an attempt to shed light on the common, but often unstable, ground we share. This takes place against a backdrop of alt- country, folk-indie music that has been influenced by the likes of Beck and Little Wings but with a 70s-British edge, you can hear traces of Fairport Convention and Faces in there too. Like the garden feature, Crazy Paving songs are a jagged jigsaw that fits together to form a sonic path and invites you to walk down.
