Noise of Art starts its celebration of 100 years of electronic music with a rare as hens teeth chance to see the Eccentronic Research Council, featuring Maxine Peake, live

Marking a century since Luigi Russolo, the Italian futurist, published his ‘Manifesto for An Art of Noises’ (1913) and designed what many hold to be the first synthesiser, the celebrations will see a series of music and cross platform art events taking place over the next year. The Launch party references the role Sheffield played in electronic music and the era defining music that came out of London’s clubs at the turn of the 21st Century.

Headlining the show is the Eccentronic Research Council, featuring film, stage and TV star Maxine Peak on vocals. Amongst her many roles, Peake has starred in Shameless, Dinner Ladies, Clubbed and Silk, and is about to headline the 2013 Manchester International Festival.

This is the first time Eccentronic Research Council has played in London (having turned down every previous offer) and will be the only chance to see the cross-platform band perform their acclaimed ‘1612 Underture’ in the Capital. If you miss this you have really missed out.

The core of Eccentronic Research Council, apart from Maxine, are Dean Hohner and Adrian Flanagan, two vintage synth enthusiasts who are themselves part of Sheffield’s electronic and leftfield heritage, having been members of band’s such as I Monster, Kings Have long Arms, The Chanteuse & The Crippled Claw and All Seeing Eye. They count Sheffield legends such as DJ Parrot, Jarvis Cocker and Phil Oakey in their circle.

Keeping the party going all night long, will be a core collection of London DJs from the most legendary London nightclubs at the start of the 21st Century.

Pioneering what was at times called electroclash, electro house, indie dance, new rave, disco punk, the Hoxton sound, Berlin sound and, simply, electro (but all the while trying to wriggle out of having a name at all), the clubs rebelled against the over-produced dance music of the late Nineties and looked back to early synthesiser music for inspiration; something they have in common with ECR’s love of vintage analogue sounds – plenty of which will be on hand tonight.

The clubs, such as Nag Nag Nag , The Cock, Trash and Anti Social, all returned to electronic music’s dirtier sounding roots, but came back with different takes.

Representing these clubs tonight will be Fil Ok, resident DJ and founder of the legendary Nag Nag Nag. Jim Stanton, DJ and creator of The Cock, one of the clubs, alongside Trash, responsible for the sound in London, and Scottee, the DJ and performance artist who, along with Buster, was behind Anti Social, the maddest and baddest new rave club of them all.

Justin Robertson, legendary DJ, Bugged Out resident and original Hacienda Acid houser, will be wearing his Deadstock 33’s hat, a new nom de plume that sees him delve back to the heyday of New York anti-disco in a way that only he could. Check out his sublime new LP on Munk’s seminal imprint, Gomma, to see what we mean.

Meanwhile the DJ’s DJ, Italian stallion Severino, who alongside Jim Stanton was a founder member of Horse Meat Disco (the night that brought disco back), will be flying the flag for his synthesiser inventing and electronic music fathering compatriot, Luigi Russolo.

DJ and Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne will be intervening at various points, incorporating some of the electronic sounds created by Luigi Russolo into his contemporary dancefloor set. And there’s more to be announced…

Details of the next event to be announced shortly.

Ben Osborne (Slipped Disco/ Noise of Art) and Severino (Horse Meat Disco/ Hyena Stomp) and unannounced guests swing back into this fashionable hideaway for their birthday party mash-up.

Slipped Disco’s Yes We KAN’T started as a one off party here last February. Following the resulting mayhem, Momo’s asked if they could come back the following month. One month soon followed another and the invitations kept on coming and by the summer they were offered a monthly residency.

Over the last year Osborne-Severino forays here have caused sweet chaos.

After a series of packed out, mayhemic one-offs, DJs Severino and Ben Osborne swing back into this fashionable hideaway for another party mash-up. Osborne-Severino forays here cause sweet chaos as they mix from everything into anything (Seventies funk rock to glitched disco, jackin’ Chicago house, drum n bass and bin munching b-lines), and regularly have them dancing on the tables. Even the doormen join in for the “one more tune” chorus.

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.

Ben Osborne (Slipped Disco’ UFO/ Noise of Art) and Severino (Horse Meat Disco/ Hyena Stomp) celebrate the onset of fashion week by pairing-up for night long session in the basement of this famously fashionable central London hang out. Live dance act KAN’T bring their improvised prog grooves to the dancefloor, which usually means setting themselves up on the dancefloor amongst the audience. The alley outside Momo is apparently where Bowie shot the cover for his Zigggy Stardust concept album. Making it a suitably prog-meets-glam location for tonight’s antics.
