Two year programming residency in the Islington Mill event space
I KNOW I'M AN ALIEN
I Know I'm An Alien is based in London. He uses guitars, voice, synthesizer and drum machines to create a different kind of music, as well as making "straight and pretty Spanish guitar instrumentals."
"A steady serfdom to bugged out, Weenish cartoonism, contagious fringe rock, and dingy weirdness. [A] gonzo-pop jukebox... coltish antics. Rowdy bass lines. Synthy kookiness. Conehead vocal stylings. It’s batty, man. This is good time music, for nice people."
- Mike Haley from Tabs Out (USA) on I Know I'm An Alien's debut cassette release
Influences: Ornette Coleman, Snakefinger, the chromatic scale, Al Caiola's "Music for Space Squirrels" and Space Age Pop of the late 1950s.
