Very excited to announce one of the very few European solo shows from Legendary guitarist and founding member of Earth, Dylan Carlson. He recently set out to pursue a solo endeavour, up to now he has released a cassette as drcarlsonalbion but there still remains an air of mystery and much anticipation as to what direction this solo musical endeavour will go next.
For this date and at Supersonic, he will be teaming up with a number of other musicians including Teresa Colamonaco on vocals, Michael York on bagpipes, and Rogier Small on snare drum. Carlson was born in Seattle, Washington, United States. He had first become interested in being a rock musician at age 15, inspired by bands such as Molly Hatchet, AC/DC, and Black Sabbath. He also cites The Melvins, and composers La Monte Young and Terry Riley as major influences on his music. It was in Olympia, Washington that he met Slim Moon, Greg Babior, Dave Harwell and Joe Preston, with whom he would later form Earth. During this time, he would often make ‘sonic collages’ with his then roommate Kurt Cobain. From 1991 to 1996, Earth had an ever-changing lineup.
Tonight Cyprus Avenue, 13.50. Doors from 9pm.
