Saturday 27 April
Strange Brew, 21:00 — 03:00
Book tickets

A Saturday night shock to the system at Strange Brew, with a programme of artists who share a taste for radically reshaping tried and tested forms. An early programme of live performance, including the drone/black metal-inflected leyline explorations of One Leg One Eye (aka Ian Lynch from Lankum) and the energising clash of Korean folk ritual and pummelling noise aesthetics that is bela, gives way to a very special, malevolently heavy three-hour backroom dub dance courtesy of The Bug.

Doors: 2100
End: 0300

The Bug (In Dub)

Kevin Martin’s The Bug project ramps the physicality and intensity of Jamaican soundsystem music to its limits, and has resulted in a triptych of essential LPs: 2008’s ‘London Zoo’, 2014’s ‘Angels & Devils’ and 2021’s ‘Fire’. Bug shows pummel the senses as much as the architecture of the room. A pivotal figure since the 90s, Kevin’s other important projects include Techno-Animal, God, King Midas Sound, Zonal and recent film scores and multichannel performances under his own name. More

One Leg One Eye

A project of Ian Lynch (founding member of Irish group Lankum) that explores submerged leylines of music and song, drawing on the raw aesthetics of black metal, noise and drone, while also being deeply embued with a sense of history and myth. His debut album ‘…And Take The Black Worm With Me’ (released on Nyahh Records in 2022) is a slow burning suite of five expansive songscapes that has found its audience largely by word of mouth. More
