Adam Betts - Colossal Squid
Entry Requirements: All Ages
The beast is back - our favourite one-man drum machine is returning to Ramsgate on March 21st!
Performed previously with Jarvis Cocker, Shobaleader One, and Three Trapped Tigers...
Adam Betts - the Colossal Squid - returns to Ramsgate to perform a bunch of new stuff under his new title. While not busy being the backbone of Three Trapped Tigers, or playing for the likes of Squarepusher (in Shobaleader One), Goldie and/or Pete Tong (with The Heritage Orchestra), Betts has been busy working on his second solo album and is here to melt your minds with these brand new turbo energy fun time belters!
Betts' first LP 'Colossal Squid' is a dynamic and progressive piece of triggered sounds and extreme drumming vigour, detailed around delicious grooves. Brewing electronica, metal, industrial and braindance, its ringing snares, icy synths and curveball atonality recall the nominal reference to sci fi b-movies.
A new record is on the way, titled 'Curse These Metal Hands'. Lead single 'I Lost Detroid', featuring the wonderful Saint Saviour, is truly a joy to behold. Vocals have elevated an already remarkable sound to a whole new level...
"Drum nuts will salivate over the way in which Betts has managed to fuse himself with his gear, but for anyone else, it'll be a pleasure just to hear him play drums like it’s the end of the world" - The Line of Best Fit
