Friday 7 April PART TWO
BLACK DEVIL DISCO LIVE AT VILLAGE UNDERGROUND
On the last night of our exhibiton our friends at Village Underground have invited French electronic disco pioneer Black Devil Disco Club, AKA Bernard Fevre, to play a rare gig. Somewhat of a legend, the Parisian released his first electronic disco album back in 1975. For a long time forgotten, he was rediscovered when a mate of Aphex Twin found an old record of his in a French junk shop. Thankfully he’s now back with new releases coming out through our exhibiiton collaborators at Lo Recordings. This is his first show in London for 6 years!
