SCHISMS

 

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.

Soil & Song – New Tape out now on Synchronise Witches Press

Hi,

So I compiled some recordings I’ve been sitting on for years – mostly cover songs and sketches – all recorded on the same mashed up acoustic guitar (£10 from a washing machine shop in Frizinghall, Bradford)  The action is about 1/2 an inch high and I think that’s what gives it that big bass sound.

The tape itself (ltd to 60 copies) is released alongside a fanzine paying homage to Karen Dalton (who’s album “Green Rocky Road” I adore) and can be bought direct from Synchronize Witches’ Website.

But if you just want to stream or buy the download, you can listen via my bandcamp:

 

“Pure Touch Only From Now, They Said So” new LP out 9.9.18 available here

hello,

so here’s the record – finally! It’s an LP – not a double, as I had originally intended. I decided to condense it for maximum intensity.

It’s been pressed, the covers are ready, and the prints for the special edition are almost finished…The official release date is Sunday 9th September, when the full album will be available for streaming from Early Music Record’s bandcamp page,  + the vinyls to be posted out soon after.

I am also accepting pre-orders via the shop, or you can order them from Norman Records.

It has been an epic journey – thank you for your patience!

love,

Bridget

solo show now available

Cafe Oto have recently released this digital download of a performance from march 2015. Click to listen to the first song in the set – a version of “when I was in my prime” which my friend Andy Farrell told me was about syphilis. I can find no evidence of this on the interweb, but who knows, maybe it’s true.
