Gate (Michael Morley of DeadC), Tom Carter (of Charalambides), Pengo, and Crush the Junta
September 23, 2013 - 08:00 PM
This is a super super rare appearance by Gate (Michael Morley of the Dead C, New Zealand) in the US. Gate will be doing just a handful of shows around the northeast US and Canada, along with the amazing Tom Carter (of the Charalambides), and Rochester is lucky enough to be one of their stops.
\"Morley sings and plays guitar and laptop as a member of The Dead C, but also records on his own (and with collaborators) as Gate. Earlier, in the 1980s, Morley was a member of Wreck Small Speakers On Expensive Stereos.
Morley founded the Precious Metal label sometime in the late 1980s to document, first on cassette and later LP and CD, his own work as Gate. Most of the releases on Precious Metal were limited to very small quantities.
Morley currently teaches at Otago Polytechnic School of Art in Dunedin.\"
\"Tom Carter's solo electric guitar work sculpts a richly varied landscape of immensely-stacked grit and beauty, weaving interlocking strands of visceral melody into towering (and often high-volume) long-form drones.\"
