I Know I'm An Alien Solo Set at Hundred Years Gallery for Festival OVO

After being forced to cancel due to poor acclimation to Earth weather as mentioned in previous blog post, I Know I'm An Alien will finally play long overdue solo set at the great Hundred Years Gallery in Hoxton, London, UK.

The set will consist of spaced out synthesizer and atonal guitar weirdness along with far out magnetic tape manipulations in order to bend space and time and successfully achieve a change in dimension and a creation of a new reality for 20-25 minutes or however long it will last in Earth time. Respect.

Tapes and CD-R's will be available to the public.

The festivities will be a part of the great Festival OVO which occurs in beloved South America, more precisely the great nation of Brazil, city of Porto Alegre where musicians will play together in real time through the proper use of technology to also bring down the barriers of time and space and transcend physical existence and geographical limitations imposed by collective lack of knowledge of humans as time travellers and higher dimensional beings.

OVO Festival Sonoro: Lote3 musica intercontinental live webcast. Sunday 15th May from 5pm

Tabs Out Podcast

Thanks Tabsout Podcast for the Awesome review on the tape....!

Approved, perfect review! And thanks for the support, means a lot to this a here space person. Specially the bit about the 1-star Chuck E. Cheese.

thank you----------------- tabs out is far out

Here's the review:

On a standard occasion, one must put a coin in the slot of a strip mall spaceship to hear music like I Know I’m An Alien. This tape from late 2015, with the full title of “I Know I’m An Alien And I Want To Go Home Sometimes But Then I Remember I Gotta Try And Understand You”, is persistently jovial, but also a little bit “off”. A steady serfdom to bugged out, Weenish cartoonism, contagious fringe rock, and dingy weirdness. It all makes me think of a 1-star Chuck E. Cheese’s bootleg joint that opened up just a little too quick after a flood/fire combination took them out 3 weeks ago. But Teddy, the night manager, his cousin Ray “knows drywall” so they redid the whole place themselves. The carpet was soaked AND burnt, but is somehow still sticky to the touch. Layers of pizza ooze and “Slarpee’s” must have burrowed deep into the abyss of fibers. They didn’t even throw out the old pizza. It’s called “before flood pizza” and costs 50 cents less. Rejected mall cops dance in pathetic Sonic The Hedgehog costumes for 6-9 year old’s jacked up on Mountain Dew flavored pepperoni.

Sixteen cuts make up this gonzo-pop jukebox, each with their own coltish antics. Rowdy bass lines. Synthy kookiness. Conehead vocal stylings. It’s batty, man. Imagine Teddy’s band playing a gig through the water-damaged PA system while video games act up, ski ball goes haywire, and a gaggle of piss stained brats attack the token guy. The tracks exist in that perfect, on-the-fritz zone, where you don’t know exactly what will pop up next. A toy piano cover of Chariots Of Fire by someone’s pudgy newphew, Spanish guitar, and a globby softvapour drill all make their way into the fray. This is good time music, for nice people.

Low DPI cover art and 1998 font work only helps further I Know I’m An Alien’s nutty agenda. Full support over here. I hope they get back home one day. In the meantime, you can pick up a copy of this cassette, which is limited to 50, from their Bandcamp.

Free Form Freakout

 I Know I’m An Alien is on Free Form Freakout KMSU from Minnesota, USA. 

"Of the new material played throughout this show, I’ve been particularly drawn to the experimental metal sounds of Drose, the crude cut-up tape work of Brian Ruryk, the oddball lo-fi pop of I Know I’m An Alien..."

Thank you FFF for playing the music, gives hope and faith to this here space person to carry on and keep searching for the light in the confusing valley of material existence and physical incarnation.
