Is it real, or is it a dream?
Dreamscape combines the fascinating surreal art montage film by G E Saunt with a live soundtrack by the band.
Loudhailer Electric Company guitarist Richard Duffy-Howard explained: “The artworks of G E Saunt could almost be photographic but they are paintings. Familiar yet strange they incorporate the historic and the contemporary, the real and the surreal. Our music tells a story to accompany the images. Imagine you’ve been away, you come back to Hull, step off the train and look around. Everything is slightly different than you remember it. Surely the City Hall isn’t opposite the station? Has that shark escaped from The Deep? And was that Elvis walking past the Tower? Is it a dream, or is it real?”
Loudhailer Electric Company
Original psychedelic sounds featuring members of seminal cult bands Red Guitars, Dead Fingers Talk and The Planet Wilson.
Meet the Band
Loudhailer Electric Company are a new band with a big history in the post punk psychedelic and original Indie scene, featuring ex members of seminal bands Red Guitars, Dead Fingers Talk and The Planet Wilson. The band are making waves with their new release NEXUS, their third collection of songs, preceded by studio albums Cursus and Morpheus.
Loudhailer Electric Company songwriter and vocalist Lou Duffy-Howard had Indie chart topping success with influential indie band Red Guitars, best known for No. 1 single Good Technology and Independent album Slow to Fade, before releasing two albums on Virgin Records.
Guitarist Jeff Parsons pioneered gritty post punk psychedelia with trend setters Dead Fingers Talk whose album – Storm the Reality Studios – was produced by the great Hull born Spiders from Mars guitarist, Mick Ronson for Pye Records.
The line-up is completed by spoken word poetry wordsmith Richard Duffy-Howard and drummer Rich Walker.
G E Saunt is a prolific painter and visual entertainer, having produced hundreds of paintings using digital technology. Gary explains: “Much of my work takes the form of a cultural pilgrimage from Beverley to Hull with a vivid and compelling ‘dreamscape’ that incorporates the familiar and the strange, the historic and the contemporary, the real and the surreal.Perhaps we could try re-attaching ancient myths to our daily lives. Perhaps our eyes should choose more – linger on symbolism more than be fed rolling news. Perhaps we already live in waking dreamscapes – but not our own.”

We’ll be playing some favourite tracks from our back catalogue too, so come and join us on the 21st, we’re ready to have a party!”
What the Press says about Loudhailer Electric Company
“Cutting edge, psychedelic music of the highest quality.” Alan Raw on the Tom Robinson show on BBC 6 Music.
Universal Soundscape Album of the Year: “Cursus is a wonderful album featuring nine original tracks of psychedelic sounds underpinned with a myriad of references to folk, classic rock and other genres. The music is highly atmospheric, immersive and hypnotic with the ability to transport the listener to another time and place.” Across The Universal Soundscape
“C’mon, we’re gonna take you on a trip (the opening line of Night Heron) fits the whole album on two levels. Lyrically, the trip is like an open top bus ride around their locality with tour guide Lou giving you the lowdown. Musically, it’s more of a psychedelic trip with folky influences and some stunning playing.” Davey Hammond, Sounds Magazine
“The room rocked from the first track to their encore. If you do nothing else this year, get yourself to another of the Loudhailer Electric Company’s Psychedelic Gatherings and enjoy their sound for yourself.” Browse Mag.
“Loudhailer Electric Company are a great festival band …straight out of the gates we are presented with the sound of a highly competent band that to me sound a bit like a psychedelic Siouxsie and the Banshees.” Terrascope Magazine.
“…a magic album. What really draws out the juice is driving through the forest at night with the windows down – wind blowing my hair everywhere – playing it LOUD. I am sure the BIG lizards and bandicoots, snakes and owls think I’m extra-terrestrial as I whizz by. It is a very very rich experience…” Jungle Jim Ward, Byron Bay, New South Wales.
