I just realized I made up a parasitic goose barnacle that embeds in the backs of vertebrate hosts years before I ever knew that literally existed
THIS LITERALLY EXISTS? o.O
Anelasma squalicola is a deviant goose barnacle which buries its trunk in the back…

SAFE + Siorai Geimhreadh (with guests) + Luxury Mollusc
Siorai Geimhreadh: Experimental Noise Rock band Siorai Geimhreadh will work collaboratively with a number of musicians for a semi-improvised performance, working with the intention of creating an intense one-off piece, this performance will expand on their usual musical style, utilising the extended line up to move out of the rock band dynamic and allow for a unique live experience.Safe: Noise behemoths Safe return to play their only Irish gig of 2014. Combining field recordings, howling feedback, thundering pulses of noise, frequency bursts, Safe are keeping it loud, in the face of eclecticism and hip quirkiness. Po-faced sonic violence meets stern power electronics meets didactic walls of noise. Their last release was a collaboration with noise legend Vomir,a tape in which ‘Vomir contributed no sound and Safe played nothing’. They are working in deadly earnestness on new album ‘The Fall of Rome’, in between commissioning stellar works by international artists on their label dotdotdotmusic
Luxury Mollusc: Sounds like the fear/drowning/spiritual castration. Ditch drone and gravel groan, harsh scrap noise and occult ambient unease.
Excited to be playing Cork again. The rumble starts at 8:30. Siorai Geimhreadh released the following statement;
"Extended SG line up will include members of Wreck of the Hesperus, United Bible Studies, PCP, Rhino Magic and other bands you like. It’s probably an understatement to say this will be noisy."
