Live in concert ... a special late night performance at Kodu from,

  Roman Pilates (CA) Roman Pilates is the solo Harsh Drone/Harsh Noise project of Kevin Crump. Roman Pilates utilizes composed low-rent tape loops, found sound sampler work-outs, old school analog synth frequency freak-outs, amplified/processed back alley junk metal and sometimes astral realm homemade horn blasts. All combine under the guise of the genre heading Noise/Avant/Experimental Drone or file under post-industrial/abstract film soundtracks. Roman Pilates has been almost as active as my other two passion projects, fronting T.O. Noise-punk combo "Disguises" as well as acting founder and CEO of Wintage Records & Tapes. All projects have existed for 7 years, touring countless times to Montreal, Canadian east coast and back. Wintage Records & Tapes has enjoyed great success with releasing homemade, hand-crafted limited edition cassettes by the likes of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, London Ontario's Nihilist Spasm Band, Brooklyn New York's Mouthus, and various side projects from American Noise figure heads Wolf Eyes, all while focusing the attention back on local independent noise makers and Can-con avant underdogs.   Nosfe (FI) Nosfe has been making experimental music since mid 90s. Mostly he's been working together with different bands, most notably Grey Park and Nega. Performing only with electronics and no instrumentation, things will get noisy.   Ratkiller (EE) Ratkiller kills rats! Ratkiller is good!
