Schisms are a new trio consisting of Bridget Hayden, Richard Chamberlain and Sam McLoughlin. Steeped in rehearsal room ambience and tape saturation, these recordings filter a 50s rock’n’roll sensibility through a noise aesthetic: The Dead C playing the Back to the Future high school dance. Free jams and fuzz-obscured songs from a timeless limbo where VU boots are the basic currency.

I’ve been jamming a lot recently with Richard G Chamberlain and Sam Alexander Mcloughlin. We played our first gig (supporting TRUMAN’S WATER no less) recently in the GOLDEN LION, Todmorden. Here’s a shot of the performance from Andrew wild (CROW VERSUS CROW) plus the poster. Looking forward to continuing the experiments.
Happy to share this film I made recently for a track called “Ephemeral and the Material” from Zaïmph’s album “Rhizomatic Gaze” out now on Drawing Room Records. The footage was shot on the yorkshire moors last Autumn:
