Paddy Shine (GNOD) / Mai Mai Mai @ Tricky's McGarrigles, June 15th
Concession of €6 available on door
Paddy Shine is the co founder of Gnod and has worked under various guises in the last 10 years: Druss, BB84, and his most recent project AYN SØF to name a few.
For over 10 years Shine has been a whirlwind force of frenetic electric creativity, working within a hugely wide spectrum of sound and with a multitude of different satellite projects, it can indeed be said, Shine is a Perpetual Motion Machine, no death, only transformation of energy.
For his latest solo shows, Shine will call upon his experiences in his past and present projects and collaborations for an organic and mostly improvised set of collected field recordings, gongs, bells , analog warmth and noise.
All will be in the spirit of GNOD.
As a child, Toni Cutrone aka Mai Mai Mai followed his parents around Europe and the Near East, ending up in the south of Italy, assimilating different cultures, atmospheres and sonorities of the places he was involuntarily taken to. These sensations and sounds were intense enough to leave indelible traces in his music, but Roman noise omnivore Cutrone own decade-plus experience in the Italian underground has doubtless played a role as well.
Each and everyone of Mai Mai Mai poisonous, punishing electronic miasmas are named after characters of the Greek alphabet, beginning with Theta (Boring Machines, 2013) and followed by Δέλτα (Delta) (Yerevan Tapes, 2014). Φ(Phi) (Not Not Fun Records /Boring Machines, 2017) is the third and final installment in his Mediterranean trilogy, pushing the project deeper into a vivid interzone of digital synthesis and scorched ritual.
Mai Mai Mai grew into a killer live act, he was invited at Liverpool Psych Fest 2015 and played lots of shows around Europe with fellow bands like Gnod, Silver Apples and more.
