Melbourne musician the Man from Atlantis (TMFA) returns to NSW for a series of intimate shows playing raga-influenced American Primitive guitar and psych folk and joining him for an afternoon of avant-folk will be locals Meteor Infant and Jeremy Nicholas.

The man from Atlantis is the moniker for Melbourne musician and Ramble Records owner Mike Sill. Mike started 90s experimental noise, prog-rock, art-punk outfit Ray of Creation in the early 90s and went on to form krautrock duo Imperial Leatherman in 2000. the Man from Atlantis and its various iterations is an extension of ideas formed in his previous bands and sonically traverses somewhere between American Primitive finger-style guitar and raga, blues, no wave, outsider/acid folk/psych.

In 2023 TMFA released the LP's Golden Light and Blues for Archie Shepp (included in 'The Third Eye’s best Psychedelic Rock Albums of July 2023') . Both releases epitomised the outsider psych and sonic experimentation that has become a common thread at Ramble Records.

Live shows incorporate both elements of light and shade (acoustic guitar, Weissenborn, electric guitar with effects and loops) and highlight gentleness and fragility as well as a heavier more experimental element.

Meteor Infant is the project of Sydney-based guitarist and singer-songwriter Liam Keenan. 2022 saw the release of "Ancient House" which drew upon Keenan's Indigenous heritage and experiences growing up in regional Australia.

Jeremy Nicholas is a Sydney-based American primitive/Industrial guitarist whose dexterous finger-picking and meandering textures draw on American roots music including American Primitive pioneers John Fahey and Robbie Basho.

In 2022 Jeremy released the EP Paraklesis and the single Chimera in 2023.
