Support from ED SYKES & THE SONIC OSCILLATORS
Colchester based Ed Sykes is a Rock and Roll Shaman. His music is about where pop meets the avant-garde. Ed’s debut 7’’ single ‘Whiplashed’ released last year on Maniac Squat Records boasts contributions from musical luminaries Jon Povey of The Pretty Things and David Bowie’s pianist Mike Garson.
Ed Sykes recently produced and features on the ‘Think Pink 3’ album by 60’s Pysch Icon and founder of the Pink Fairies, Twink.
He is currently recording his debut album to tape with his backing group The Sonic Oscillators and applying old school recording techniques. Various special guests are set to appear on the album and Ed himself is also set for some interesting, currently secret, collaborations in the coming months. You can expect to hear a lot more from this innovative artist throughout 2020. With the release of his highly anticipated debut album he’ll be performing throughout the UK with his live band.
