Dylan Carlson of Earth

8pm on Tuesday 16 October 2012

One Inch Badge in association with Rock A Rolla presents Dylan Carlson of Earth.

Dylan Carlson is the lead guitarist and lead singer of drone group Earth. Carlson was born in Seattle, Washington and 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. From 1991 to 1996, Earth had an ever-changing lineup. During this time, he would often make ‘sonic collages’ with his then roommate Kurt Cobain.

Combining field recordings with classic Scottish and English ballads about human/fairy encounters, Carlson’s first solo outing is a journey through his personal and cultural past, embracing music, folklore, the occult dimension and history. This promises to be a very special show indeed.

Kraak is a performance and exhibition space in the Northern Quarter. It’s down a cobbled street, just behind Fit To Dance off Stevenson Square.

This show is a co-promotion with One Inch Badge.
