Joshua Burkett, Ed Yazijian (USA) + tbc


Ed Yazijian has never played solo shows in Europe before, but is known globally for his solo lp and cd releases and also for his long running but sparsely documented collaborations with Dredd Foole(They performed together at 'Le'Weekend' Festival).
He has also been a collaborator/guest performer with groups such as Sun City Girls, Cul De Sac, and Come. In the mid-90s he was in the highly regarded rock band 'Kustomized' alongside Pete Prescott(Mission Of Burma) and Yucki Gipe(Bullet Lavolta).

His solo recordings have been said to weave through personalized spaces using guitar, eastern percussion, and 'mainlined/cosmic/drone' violin.

"Violinist and steel guitarist Ed Yazijian aka Dr E'weerd Yijji has played the Lee Underwood to Dredd Foole's Tim Buckley for past few decades with barely a thought to the contours of his own musical soul. For anyone expecting 'simply' a series of solo violin and guitar readings, Six WaysTo Avoid The Evil Eye(his first solo lp) will come as a real curveball, as the central orbit around which most of these tracks swing is mostly based in rhythmic/percussive ritual in a way that more immediately brings to mind the rain of stones that defines much of the Angus MacLise back catalog. There's a heavy, devotional air to much of the activity that speaks of personal trance as eloquently as the works of Alice Coltrane, albeit transposed to a much more punk primitive palette of hand-drums, bows and traditional acoustic drones." --David Keenan, The Wire
