Best remembered for his role in late-'70s experimental rock trio This Heat, drummer and vocalist Charles Hayward has been a constant presence on the outer fringes of the music scene ever since, both working as a solo artist and playing in groups including Fred Frith's Massacre. In his latest project, V4Victory, he enlists bassist Nick Doyne-Ditmas, guitarist Vern Edwards and DJ BPM to create an 'improvised psychedelia' that occasionally recalls Can at their most drugged-out. Support on the first night comes from avant-prog trio Korekyojin, before Jim O'Rourke takes over on Monday evening with his new band, Time Slippers.
