For the earlies First Friday accompanying Alex Hanimann’s solo show, RAP from Westmorland in the UK perform live together with their special guests Lisa (cello) and CP Nailor (DJ) in Studio West.
RAP was founded by Guy Gormely and Thomas Bush in 2009. The musical roots of their sound, based on vocals, guitar, drum machine, and synth, is their northern hometown, especially the rural and the industrial.
