The YUK FUN team went to see Ariel Pink down at The Old Market in Hove on Wednesday night. We have admired his works for some time so it was great to see him live. Ariel and his band were enthralling performers, playing songs that were at times genuinely frightening and at others swooningly lovely. He didn’t play these two songs but we really like them. We bought his new album Pom Pom on double vinyl at the gig and would whole-heartedly recommend it.
One of the support acts was Harry Merry, a very unique veteran performer from Holland. This was our favourite song from his set of psychedelic carnival synthesiser madness.
