The penultimate Hello GoodBye show of the current season promises to be as action packed as ever with 2 live bands and a poet to squeeze into the full 90 minutes!
Clorinde is an instrumental avant-folk project composed by multi-instrumentalist Andrea Salvatici, Simone Salvatici David Harris & Derek Yau. Formed in 2005 by Italian brothers Simone and Andrea, Clorinde make extensive use of acoustic and electric instruments (banjos, guitars , vibraphones, African kalimbas, zithers, clarinet, bass, electric organ, Cello, flute, various drums and percussions), bringing an enchanting flavor of rhythmic psychedelia mathematical post-folk with exciting structures and surprising passages of minimal introspection.
Clorinde have just released their new double album “The Gardens of Bomarzo” which they’re currently performing accompanied by visuals.
Dead Belgian are a Liverpool-based band playing the music of Jacques Brel. They began life in 2007, inspired to share Brel’s music with all who would listen. Each member brought their own influences to the band, from European folk to progressive rock, stripping the songs to their bare bones and fattening them up again using a ramshackle drum kit, ukulele, guitar, accordion, saxophone, mandolin, clarinet and flute. Dead Belgian have developed a playful and inventive sound that meshes dense melodic patterns, demonic waves of intensity and passages of sparse frailty with vocals that have drawn comparison to Edith Piaf, Anthony Hegarty and Nico.
It is a sound unique to themselves while still capturing the beauty, passion and humour of the original work, a rousing and rowdy back-porch reinvention of Jacques Brel’s honest and poetic stories.
Also, Caledonian wordsmith Gerry Mitchell returns to the show with a clutch of new poems to read.
Tune in between noon and 1.30pm (GMT) on 104.4 FM in central London or on-line via: Resonance FM
