Vulpus Vulpus

'Vulpus Vulpus' is now available to buy from the Beartown Records website, where an excerpt of 'Lux Accidental' can also be streamed.

Beartown say:

"BARACLOUGH are making noises. Baraclough are jangling cutlery. Baraclough are muttering weird nonsense. Baraclough are meditating. Baraclough are floating above you. Baraclough at flopping at your feet like a newly landed sound-haddock. Baraclough are scuttling through the city streets radiating beautiful music. Baraclough are truly strange and inspiring. Baraclough are Paul de Casparis, Dale Cornish, Eddie Nuttall.

A collection of unreleased recordings made during 2009 and 2010, this cassette represents the BARACLOUGH boys at their most beguiling; words spew out of the mouth-hole straight from the twisted brain-mush, and a choir of cassette-tape angels drown beneath the glimmering synthesiser sea.

It's a long overdue pleasure to have this band release a tape with Beartown, and well worth the wait!

Edition of 50, with blood red cassettes and carniverous artwork."

'Vulpus Vulpus' can be purchased here

Performance Archive

Baraclough are pleased to announce the release of 'Maggot 04.12.08', the first in an ad-hoc series of live recordings to be made available as digital downloads.

Recorded on the 4th December 2008, at Maggot, a performance event organised by Little Richard La Rue and held at Wolfgang Tillmans’ stock cupboard in East London. The unusually brittle nature of this recording was generated by the limitations of the mono soundsystem hired in for the evening.

'Maggot 04.12.08' can be streamed or downloaded for closer inspection here

An eyewitness account of the evening can be found here

Time Out

A photograph of Baraclough by Wolfgang Tillmans is featured in this week's Time Out London. The photograph was taken at Maggot in 2008, one of our favourite gigs, which was held in Wolfgang's stock cupboard.

Baraclough are on the verge of announcing new releases for the year and are currently in the stages of completing final details. More information will be issued soon.

April 19 2010

Last month at the opening of Sico Carlier's new exhibition at Wallgallery in Rotterdam, Nadège Piton undertook a performance piece to the soundtrack of 'The Lampshade is not a Past Tense':

"Opening SI/CO on 27/03/10 at 19h00 Nadège Piton, accompanied by The Lampshade Is Not A Past Tense by Baraclough, had to find her way through Wallgallery’s vernissage crowd towards the facade. She was dressed in ‘foulards’ by Sico Carlier in a fashion by Geerten Ten Bosch that unabled her to see. When she reached the windows she started covering them in buttermilk, crisscrossing the room. The more the view faded the more she undressed and after a good part of an hour Nadège was naked as she covered the last windows. When the view finally was gone the performance ended."
