KAPIL SESHASAYEE - A SACRED BORE LAUNCH
Doors 8:00. £6 advance. The Hug & Pint

After tours of England, Germany & Canada, art rocker Kapil Seshasayee brings "A Sacred Bore" back to his home city of Glasgow for an intimate launch show with live band renditions of songs from his debut LP.

Kapil Seshasayee is a polymath, and a true original talent, both as a songwriter and as a
soundsmith, a one-man combination of Scott Walker, Mark Hollis, Arca and Richard Dawson,
creating something wholly unique. Combining Big Black style drum machine beats with Carnatic
guitar ornamentations, stunning vocals and a penchant for unorthodox instrumentation such as the aquaphone, Kapil manages to be truly experimental yet still accessible.

A Sacred Bore  a concept album based around Indias caste system  is a piercing examination
of the abusive treatment towards lower caste Indians, aiming to raise awareness of countless
barbaric practices still prevalent among South Asian communities both in India and in
diaspora. Having already been featured in noted publications Vice, Rolling Stone, The Quietus & The Guardian, Kapil was recently on air with Bobby Friction on the BBC Asian Network, as a featured BBC Introducing Artist. Building upon the narrative of prior singles The Agitprop, A Sacred Bore & Caustic Wit, Kapil expands on issues ranging from the often-overlooked connections between the American far-right and upper-caste Indians to honour killings committed in diaspora which continue to be under-reported.
