Scalarama 2016: Cardiacs - All That Glitters is A Maresnest + Kavus Torabi (live set)
Scalarama Glasgow presents the greatest concert movie ever made! Recorded one glorious afternoon at the Salisbury Arts Centre in 1990, Maresnest captures all of the manic intensity and joyous delirium of one of the UKs nay, the worlds finest bands. Theres nothing quite like Cardiacs at full force.
Maresnest takes Cardiacs kaleidoscope-prog and ultra-pop impossibility and gives it a fiery hoof up the colon. From the bruising, nigh-industrial intro through the perilous frenzy of To Go Off And Things to the sustained climax of unlikely minor hit Is This The Life?, this is delirious, potent stuff, the sound of wild ideas obsessively woven from flesh and wire and moments.
Before the screening, special guest Kavus Torabi (of Knifeworld, Chrome Hoof, Guapo, Gong, the Monsoon Bassoon and, indeed, Cardiacs) will perform songs of extreme loveliness and brilliance.
£8 advance, £10 on the door
