Phenomenal Handclap Band play Noise of Art’s Psychedelic Curiosity Show

by on Jan.11, 2012, under Events

“If you only attend one gig this month make it this…” DJ Magazine.

New York’s Phenomenal Handclap Band are teaming up with London music and art collective, Noise of Art, to play their surround club experience, the Psychedelic Curiosity Show, at Village Underground, London, on 24 February.

Early bird and early discount tickest sold out:

The London show marking the release of Phenomenal Handclap Band’s new LP (Form & Control), sees New York’s purveyors of psych, soul, and cosmic disco enter Noise of Art’s psychedelic steam punk world.

Phenomenal Handclap Band’s sound has roots in New York, San Francisco, San Paulo and London. Imagine Curtis Mayfield and Deee-Lite throwing a Nu-Yorican house party with Afro-beat, Cosmic Italo-disco, Turkish psych and ‘70s West Coast music thrown in.

“Brooklyn collective TPHB bring their justly acclaimed psych-rock-cum-cosmic-disco party to town.” (Time Out London)

On the 45th anniversary of the UK’s Psychedelic movement, Noise of Art’s new show is inspired by contemporary steam punk and the 19th Century imagery that inexplicably became prevalent in the late Sixties. It imagines that Sergeant Pepper, Pink Floyd and The Avengers were the result of two universes colliding in 1967; throwing people from a parallel steam punk world into swinging London.

The resulting psychedelic Victoriana features coal-fired flower power, contemporary dancers, curiosities of nature, magic lanterns of psychedelic imagery, steam-powered cosmic house, psyched-out-disco and coal-fired techno.

Press about Phenomenal Handclap Band
“Punchier, grander and more focused than their debut… NYC glam dance collective reach for the stars” Q ****
‘…encapsulates the nostalgic elements of ESG, ELO, Tom Tom Club, The Doors and Sly And The Family Stone, applies a gloss of New York cool and then re-packages it with the modern production of the LCD soundsystem, CSS and Beck variety. Forget the handclap, they’ll take a standing ovation.’ – NME

‘With guitars, keyboards, percussion, and two very chic female singers (who seriously know how to rock leather leggings and sleek jumpers)—the crew took its worldly, genre-spanning sound and turned it up about a thousand notches’ -Elle

‘The PHB are astronauts of progressive soul, moored at the stellar point where rock, funk and psychedelia bloom into cosmic-disco amazingness.’ The Guardian
‘Musically diverse, incredibly melodic and dance-floor ready.’ – New York Post

‘With their multitudinous influences, blending funk, soul, reggae, dance, hip-hop and Brazilian beat, as well as rock, disco and electro, they encapsulate the spirit of the Brooklyn underground.’ – The Sunday Times Culture UK

New Year’s Eve: Noise of Art’s Psychedelic Curiosity

Noise of Art’s New Year’s Eve event at Sketch, with Ben Osborne, Luca Santucci, The People Pile, Overlap, Your Mum, Walkabout/ Prick Image, Kevin Pearce, Peter Hepworth, Fred’s House, The Medicine Shop, Louise Golbey and special guests to be announced.

New Year’s Eve at Sketch, London
31st December 2011 – 1st December 2012

Sketch, 9 Conduit Street, London, W1S 2XG

The Noise of Art entry list for this event is now full. If we’re not seeing you on the 31st we hope to see you very soon at our next events in 2012.

Noise of Art returns to the stunning party space at Sketch for NYE 2012, with a new immersive club event featuring music, art, film, performance, dance, surround projections and occurrences of curiosity.

On the 45th anniversary of the UK’s Psychedelic movement, Noise of Art’s new show is inspired by the 19th Century imagery of the late Sixties (think Blake’s iconic cover art and inner sleeve cut out moustaches). The immersive club event imagines that Sergeant Pepper, Pink Floyd and The Avengers were the result of two universes colliding in 1967; throwing people from a parallel steam punk world into the Carnaby Street scene of swinging London (which happens to be two minutes walk from the venue).

The resulting psychedelic Victoriana features DJs, coal-fired flower power, contemporary dancers, and folk singers, curiosities of nature and, visiting the capital for the very first time, the drawing room disco that is a Benefit For Mr Kite, and 360 degree magic lanterns of psychedelic imagery.

Musical acts will begin with Sixties folktronics, and rise to steam-powered cosmic house, psyched-out-disco and coal-fired techno.

“Unique venues… and quality electronica” iDJ
“The idea’s brilliant” FACT
“… bound to free the crowd from any… torpor.” The Guardian
“This gets a very big Londonist thumbs up.” The Londonist
“You’re unlikely to attend another event in London like this, so our advice is to get your ticket sharpish.” DJ Magazine
