ILK + Cucina Povera + Dominic Waxing Lyrical 13th March, 2017


Taiko drumming. Drones. Loops. Violin.

ILK is a band with taiko at its heart.

ILK comes from the rhythms of Georgie McGeown (Sound of Yell) and Alison Roe (2taiko). With Jer Reid (sumshapes, Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra etc.) on guitar (the three had met playing in Issho Taiko Drummers), Ali Begbie (sumshapes) on bass and Rafe Fitzpatrick (Alasdair Roberts, Sound of Yell etc.) on violin.”


Fenno-karelian producer with feet firmly in Glasgow, mind aloft in the imaginary and heart ambling around Europe. Produced, curated, composed and performed as part of Luxos (optimo, huntleys and palmers), Between the Acts (subcity radio, GI, radiophrenia) and Gong bath (green door studios).

I make songs about nourishment, precarity and serendipitous ephemera.


Baroque folk that’ll rebuild your hopes.
