by on Oct.31, 2015, under Events

Noise of Art is launching into it’s tenth anniversary year with a month of proto-psychedelic happenings at Brixton Bloc throughout December, including an Acid Test Weekender and New Psychedelia’s Eve on 31st December.

To kick things off, there’s a special one-off on Thursday 12 November – details below.

Carnival of Colours Press & Launch Party

Justin Robertson and the Deadstock 33s, Ben Osborne (Noise of Art) and LIVE Superhero Jam

Brixton Bloc, 143 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9TP., 5:30pm-11pm

Noise of Art and Brixton Bloc are launching a series of pop-up music and art events in the heart of Brixton. Drawing inspiration from the light art, musical experimentation and avant-garde dance and theatre that pre-figured psychedelia in 1966, the events are named after the Beatles first fully electronic song, Carnival of Colour (which was only ever performed once, at London’s first electronic music festival at the Roundhouse).

The events will include live music, sound pieces, DJ sets, projected art, installations, street art, pop up restaurants and street food stalls, and a Christmas market.

Acts playing during the month include London’s original Acid House hero and DJ behind Legendary Shoom nightclub, Danny Rampling,  electronic band White Noise (who released the UK’s first fully electronic LP in 1969), Horse Meat Disco’s cosmic disco don, DJ Severino, original Balearic darlings and Glastonbury headliners, The Woodentops, Czech electronic trailblazer Boris Karloff (debut London live gig), The Deben Collective and many more to be announced.

After a free launch event on Thursday 12 November, events proper begin on 27 November and continue throughout December, with a festive closing party on 19 December followed by Noise of Art’s New psychedelia’s Eve event on 31 December.

Brixton Bloc is a pop up cultural space in a disused social housing block on Stockwell Road (behind Brixton Academy). London based music and cross platform art collective, Noise of Art, is teaming up with Brixton Bloc and other London promoters, collaborators, bands and artists, to present a series of alternative festive live music, DJ and club nights. The nights lead up to New Year’s Eve, when Noise Art will launch it’s 10th Anniversary year with a celebration of the birth of psychedelia. Full line-up and details of other collaborators to be announced soon.

Eccentronic Research Council ft Maxine Peake launch 100 years electronic music celebrations

by on May.01, 2013, under Events

Noise of Art’s 100 years of an Art of Noises Launch Party with:

Eccentronic Research Council ft Maxine Peake – LIVE
Fil OK (Nag Nag Nag)
Deadstock 33s (Justin Robertson)
Jim Stanton (The Cock)
Scottee (Anti Social)
Gaggle
Ben Osborne (Noise of Art)
Your Mum
Mark Scott Wood
and more to be announced
8.30pm – 4am Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane,  Shoreditch, London EC2A 3PQ

Get Tickets will be on sale HERE soon and are available HERE now…

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.

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:
CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS

Click the image below to get in the mood with the psychedelic disco video to the current single:

 

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

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.
