Ford Pier // Wax M - ABGESAGT
Singers-Songwriters aus Kanada

CITY CLUB  // Start 21.30 //

 Vancouver musician Ford Pier has released six solo albums, written and arranged for symphony orchestra and chamber ensembles, been published in Geist magazine, composed electronic soundscapes for fashion shows, toured internationally supporting NoMeansNo and The Weakerthans, and appeared live and on record as a member or guest of Neko Case, D.O.A., Veda Hille, Daniel Johnston, and many others. He leads a “rock string quartet” called Strength Of Materials, whose debut Inclusive Fitness was released in 2016, and most recently, in 2018, his art-punk-pop-spazzrock band The Vengeance Trio released the album Expensive Tissue, produced by Dave Carswell (Destroyer, Tegan & Sara.) In solo performances, Ford draws on all of the above and more, accompanying himself on electric guitar and electronics, with an emphasis on those songs of his which lend themselves best to the singer-songwriter approach, focusing on his lyrics - trenchant, humorous, dark - exploring moral ambiguity and unmapped inner states. An album of this material, Gormful In Maya, produced with Howard Redekopp (Mother Mother, Said The Whale), is set to be released in April of 2020.


Wax Mannequin
Adeney's music veers from scrappy prog oddness and distressed folk to absurdist stadium metal, all with a drunk, dark humour that borders on outright Dadaism.
Beneath the unsettling imagery and musical left turns there is a steady questioning of life’s inherent strangeness and his own neuro-divergent experience.
He has appeared on thousands of pub, gallery and festival stages worldwide.
