Mary Ocher has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, raw, thought provoking, socially and creatively pushing against the current, dealing with subjects of authority, identity and conflict.

Her work is as enchanting as it is polarizing, ranging from traditional folk to raw 60s garage, ambient with ethereal vocals and abstract synths, to experimental pop with African and South American rhythms. She has released 4 studio albums on 5 labels in the past 6 years, as well as a double anthology of home recordings, 2 EPs and 2 collections of remixes. Her previous solo release was produced by Canadian Psych Rock&Roll guru King Khan.

The most recent, “The West Against The People” is out on Klangbad, Hans Joachim Irmler’s (Faust) label. It features solo tracks, as well as tracks with her two drummers Your Government, and elusive legends Die Tödliche Doris and Felix Kubin. It also features an essay elaborating on the themes of the album and analyzing the current sociopolitical climate*.

Cobra Truth 

Cobra Truth is the solo project of Mr Thomas Parkes (The Jimmy Cake/Molossus) who will be performing his one-archeologist music play.

“Charles Molbury, a young and reluctant archaeologist fresh out of University traveled to Egypt in the early 20th century. His goal was to lavish the shelves of the old British museums with ancient trinkets and artefacts, but instead he discovered true love. But Charles also discovered something else on his trip to Egypt. Something cosmic. Something terrible

Come and see the one man play the establishment doesn’t want you to see. A brand new audio visual experience that tries to blur the lines between theatre and drone jazz.
