Noise of Art is, like many, shocked and numbed to hear the sad news about Andrew Weatherall, who died yesterday aged 56-years-old.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along with many, we mourn the loss of a hugely significant part of the UK’s musical and cultural life.

Our thoughts are with his loved ones and the many, many friends and colleagues who were close to him, were inspired by him and are coming to terms with this sudden loss.

This picture is from a Guardian review of the project he kindly did for Noise Of Art for an event we did in partnership with Rocket Girl, a label he always supported, and Convergence Festival. The first time we talked about it he said he wanted to do it because he could tell from the line-up it was being done for the love. His rider? – “two bottles of that lemonade I like…”

He was, of course, an absolute gentleman.

London Prague and Ireland – Kalle and Everything Shook

by on Oct.16, 2018, under Events

In advance of our weekend of events marking the end of WW1 on 9-11 November in Prague, there is a little soiree tonight (Tuesday 16 October) in Central London.

The third in our series presenting up-and-coming acts at The Social sees a double-headliner with award winning Czech act Kalle being joined by all-girl Irish electronic three-piece Everything Shook and host DJ Ben Osborne.

Kalle are Veronika Buriankova and David Zeman from the Czech Republic. They released their debut LP, Live From The Room, in 2014. Recorded at home on cassette, it won the Andél Award for Alt.Music in 2015. Their sophomore LP, Saffron Hills, was released at the end of last year.

Everything Shook consists of Robyn Bromfield, Jessica Kennedy and Áine Stapleton who recently stunned the audience at Ireland’s Electric Picnic festival. One of The Irish Times’ Best Irish Acts of 2014. The trio have played large festivals, music venues and art spaces throughout Ireland and New York. This is their debut at The Social, London. ‘Everything Shook…recall Fever Ray and Ladytron at a melancholy 4am disco with David Lynch DJing’ (Buzz.ie).

Host DJ Ben Osborne is the founder of Noise of Art. The Guardian describes Noise of Art as an “actual cathedral of sound” and Time Out says his sets span “techno, funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite”

Mehdi

It was with great sadness that Noise of Art heard about the passing of DJ Mehdi. He played Noise of Art five years ago and we’ve known each other for sometime. He was always happy, smiling and glad to see everyone. He was an inspired DJ and a kind, generous person. Our thoughts are with his loved ones.

The Guardian carried a half page obituary by Ben Osborne last Saturday. You can read it online here. http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2011/sep/15/dj-medhi-obituary
