Scorn is an English electronic music project. Often associated with industrial and experimental music.
Mick Harris has gone from being the rhythmic cyclone drummer behind the seminal grindcore band @theofficialnapalmdeath in the 80’s to being lauded as an electronic pioneer. Harris’s Scorn project explores the unseen territory between industrial, dub and ambient genres resulting in bass heavy, mesmerizing soundscapes. Harris has went on to be a force in various strains of dark electronic music, influencing everything from the Birmingham techno sound to drum & bass and ambient.
In anticipation of his new album releasing February on Ohm Resistance, we're delighted to be bringing Scorn for a very special live show to The White Hotel.
A highly prolific producer, Mick has released more than 25 albums and 12 inches as Scorn since the projects inception in 1991 as well as many releases under his Lull and Quoit aliases. His renowned live sets have included collaborations with John Zorn, Bill Laswell and The Boredom’s Yamatsuka Eye.
Sharing the bill, from the wild hedgerows and deep dark rivers of the Midlands, Leicestershire's Colossloth makes psychogeographic maladies and invocations to warm the heart of the discerning and intrepid psychonaut. Phonic seeds planted in Blackened soil fertilised by visceral imagination. A fugitive ambience for those seeking solace in the unexpected.
Aside from sharing the stage with the likes of Pop Will Eat Itself, FRET (Mick Harris), Jarboe, Discharge, Acid Mothers Temple, Tim Hecker, Damo Suzuki, Terminal Gods, Bong, and Zoviet France, Colossloth's music alternates between the brooding and abrasive to the transcendental and enchanted. With nods to a multitude of genres - from industrial and ethnic tribalism to the bastard ghosts of rave, it's spirit can be found crucified in between the anode and cathode of occult circuitry, transmitting across modern England whispered messages from the lips of the old gods of Albion.
