Brighton’s Map 71 combine the words of artist Lisa Jayne with the productions of Andy Pyne, bringing together sinister ritual percussion and sparse electro textures with a voice racing between surreal demons and earthy anxiety.
Lisa Jayne is a regular performer on the Brighton poetry scene and the originator of chaos improv unit Ringlock. Andy Pyne records as Ugly Animal and has played drums with Medicine & Duty, West Hill Blast Quartet, Kellar, Shrag, Black Neck Band and many others, as well as performing live with Kid Millions’ Man Forever project.
“Apocalyptic proclamations from some piss-stained midnight car park of the mind” (The Wire)
“Jayne rants like Lydia Lunch run through a vocoder” (Byron Coley)
“Map 71 trudge a hollowed shadow lined path where lurk the ghosts and remnant sonic skins of PIL, Cabaret Voltaire and This Heat” (The Sunday Experience)
