They present Noxshi as an experience combining music, dramatics and visual projections. The name Noxshi (Knock-she) relates to an area of the Caucasus, a region that bridges East and West. Noxshi have performed throughout the UK supporting U2, CKY, Peter Murphy and Killing Joke, toured Australia with Yusuf (formally Cat Stevens) and recently produced their debut album ‘The Way They Lush’. Noxshi recruit auxiliary musicians to supplement its core and collaborate with a range of artists including video/light artists and dancers from the London Contemporary Dance School.
This high level of diversity has allowed Noxshi to present visually and sonically arresting performances as well as encouraging them to explore soundtrack composition. Noxshi are preparing to release ‘The Way They Lush’, recorded by the band at their studio in Highbury (London) mixed with David Tickle (Peter Gabriel, Prince) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers). ‘The Way They Lush’ has a knowing quality and demonstrates ambition handled with skill and invention. The album is supported by a video for the track ‘Mesh Voyeurist’ as well as a filmed live studio set both edited by John Minton.
The videos demonstrate Noxshi’s imagery of heterotopian metalepsy; displacement through plural realities. The cover was illustrated by the legendary illustrator Klaus Voormann. Noxshi are scheduled to play a number of showcase dates in the USA. They will be playing at in The Mercury Lounge, New York on 7th March 2011, the Viper Room, Los Angeles 10th March 2011 and then appearing at SXSW Festival, Austin TX.
