RE:PLAY
w/ special guests:
FRED DEAKIN (LEMON JELLY) and resident DJ BEN OSBORNE

BEDROOM BAR, 62 RIVINGTON ST, London EC2A 3AY www.noiseofart.org

9-3am £5 adv / £7 on the door

Fred Deakin has crossed boundaries from the start. A classically trained musician, he was a pioneer of dance music in London, where he grew up, and Edinburgh – where he lived for a decade. While in Scotland he started his artistic career as part of the Airside collective and ran several club nights.

But it was with old friend Nick Franglen, a studio programmer, who worked with Primal Scream, Bjork and The Spice Girls, that he began recording under name Lemon Jelly.

Between 1998 and 2000 they released three EPS on their own label, Impotent Fury – also the name of their seminal Brick Lane club night.

After signing to XL, they released the EPs as an LP ‘Lemonjelly.ky’, before moving onto their second album, ‘Lost Horizons’, which was released in 2002, and nominated for the 2003 Mercury Prize and Brit Award.

The last LP from Lemon Jelly, ’64-’95, featured samples drawn from the years between those two dates and came out in 2005. The band were to announce they were taking a break in 2008, but Fred continued working on his side projects, in 2006 writing electronic music for silent films and DJing at the first Noise of Art events at The National Film Theatre and Tate Britain. He released his neo-Balearic album, The Triptych, in 2007.

Most recently Fred debuted an interactive art installation for La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris in June 2012 and released the debut album from his new musical project Frank Eddie in the winter of 2012.

Fred’s career has covered everything from hip hop to house to downbeat to leftfield film tracks. What period he will re-play at RE:Play is anyone’s guess.

Resident DJ and long standing London DJ, Ben Osborne, will also be on hand with a platter of freshly cut tracks and a trademark roof bumping mix to keep spotters and dancers on their toes into the wee hours.

“Great concept, with consistently great guests too” (Time Out).
