▲ Damo Suzuki

Damo Suzuki needs no introduction right? Right.

The Can legend will be performing a very special set for us with his band of sound carriers.

▲ Andrew Weatherall

The legend that is Andrew Weatherall needs no introduction either!

We are very honoured to have Andrew grace the record decks at this very special show. Expect to hear fantastic records of the highest order!


Idle Fret favourites and one of the best bands in the country right now! TOY will be coming down to play an exclusive set with Damo Suzuki.

▲ Listing Ships

Listing Ships are a nautically-themed, instrumental quartet who skillfully blend their ferocious wall of sound guitar histrionics with Holy Fuck influenced electronica and jazz rhythms.

They cite inspirations from classic krautrock like Can, Harmonia and Neu!, sample-heavy intricate electronica like Boards Of Canada, Amon Tobic, plus expansive, exploratory guitar music like Tarentel, The Alps and Collections Of Colonies Of Bees

‘Reminiscent of similarly relentless Factory Floor, Listing Ships are bursting with exciting ideas. Their seemingly unending and coruscating guitar lines and excellent drumming are the foundation of a superb set’ – The Line of Best Fit

▲ Mwahaha

All the way from Oakland, California and special guests at the Warp Records showcase at this years SXSW, Mwahaha will bring their spiraling sonic landscapes of instruments filtered through an array of analogue synths. Analog drum machines exist in harmony with live drums over morphing walls of sound and haunting vocals, sounding something like acid-dropping monks bellowing Gregorian chants tinged with a starburst of colours.

‘An inspired exercise in dynamics that could induce bright ecstasy or full panic, or both’ – Spin Magazine

▲ Luke Insect

We are pleased to say that cult graphic designer and illustrator Luke Insect has designed the ace poster for this show and we can’t wait to hear some of his great record collection when he DJs on the night.

▲ Mark Raison (Monkey Picks)

Beatnik Modernist who rambles about records, books, films, art and stuff on his excellent Monkey Picks blog. Mark has one of the best record collections around, so there will plenty of brilliant 45’s played on the night.
