Back at Momo for Yes We KAN’T (Fri 22 Oct)

by on Oct.14, 2010, under clubs

Ben and Severino are taking their wildly eclectic, beautifully chaotic musical journey, Yes We KAN’T, back to the stylish West End confines of Momo again next Friday.

To be found mashing up Momo regularly these days, Yes We KAN’T is a hedonistic affair whenever it touches down at this cozy basement party venue, so expect the usual scenes of dancefloor – and tabletop – abandon towards the end of the night.

You need to email noiseofart@gmail.com for free guestlist in advance.

Slipped Disco’s UFO: Back at Big Chill House Friday 30th July

by on Jul.23, 2010, under clubs

On Friday 30th July, runaway success story Slipped Disco’s UFO returns to Kings Cross with two floors of cosmic house, space funk and a roof terrace.

The night, inspired by London’s late ‘60’s UFO club, takes over the Big Chill House with a firing line up of jackin house, psychedelic beats, cosmic disco, wigged out funk and analogue electronics.

It sees seminal Nineties eclectic-cosmic DJ and Tummy Touch label boss, Tim “Love” Lee on the wheels of steel. Apart from being the man who discovered Groove Armada back in the 1990s, Lee has recently been causing a buzz wih his latest pych discovery, The Phenomenal Handclap Band.

He joins residents Ben Osborne and X-Press 2 man, Diesel, behind the decks, while Rupert The Brewer keeps it funky upstairs.

Captain Credible is literally from another planet. Norway. His show is an extraordinary, irresistible mix of theatre, music and insanity. This is his first time back since his UK debut at Slipped Disco last year. Not to be missed.

Also playing live, The 9000 return to rock our house down with their funked-up brand of electronic music meets Boosty Collins.

Other-worldly imagery and visuals come courtesy of regular art teams Overlap and Your Mum, while resident photographer Roulla will be on hand to portrait the glamorous.

The Art Hunt forms a key part of Noise of Art’s immersive club show UFO: Rendlesham Incident, with a club show on the opening Friday night of Latitude (July 16th) and events throughout the weekend.

The theme of these events is inspired by a real incident that occurred in a Suffolk forest in the winter of 1980. Thirty years ago a hapless alien cruise ship landed in Rendlesham Forest next to a US Air Force Base. This was a mistake. The accidental tourist ship was supposed to be landing on the Mountain of Embarrassing Dreams. But the captain, having un-opposable hoofs, entered the wrong data into the ship’s sat nav, so they landed near Woodbridge instead.

During the kerfuffle of getting away from the naturally curious US Air Force, priceless artifacts belonging to the alien tourists were scattered across the forests, towns and fields of East Anglia. Lying lost for 30 years (or a long weekend in alien time), the aliens have now returned to find the lost treasures.

The Rendelsham Forest incident was reported to the MOD by Lt. Cl. Charles l Holt, the deputy commander of the US Air Force base.

Full details of the events are available through Noise of Art’s Daily Newspaper, distributed free at the UFO Disco and on the festival site. The Art Hunt is curated by Suffolk born artist, Mark Scott-Wood.

Yes We KAN’T @ Momo, Fri 2nd July

by on Jun.30, 2010, under clubs

It’s time for a mid-summer Yes We KAN’T session this Friday, back at our spiritual underground party lair, Momo.

After a series of packed out, mayhemic one-offs, DJs Severino and Ben Osborne launch their no holds barred, ad hoc monthly residency with a party mash-up in this fashionable central London haunt.

Osborne-Severino forays here cause sweet chaos as they mix from everything into anything (Seventies funk rock to salsa to glitched disco, jiggy house, drum n bass and bin munching b-lines), which regularly has them dancing on the tables. Even the doormen join in for the “one more tune” chorus.
