Danger! Systems are being corrupted and broken. We must take back control. It’s time for Manual Override. Taking control from the US are John Sheldon on his red Stratocaster, Tony Vacca on all things percussion, and Paul Richmond with his droll yet beguiling spoken word delivery. They take on anything from the mundane envy of a neighbour’s dog to nuclear power posturing, creating poetic flashes of text that erupt from a hotbed of music. Non-verbal communication between artists is as much the theater of this show as Richmond’s words or personal reflection by Sheldon and Vacca.
