“Brooklyn collective TPHB bring their justly acclaimed psych-rock-cum-cosmic-disco party to town.” (Time Out London)
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.
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. The night also features a live set from the hotly tipped Kevin Pearce band and club DJ sets from cosmic house and disco maestros Leo Zero and DJ Ben Osborne, with more to be announced.
On the 45th anniversary of the UK’s Psychedelic movement, Noise of Art’s new show is inspired by contemporary steampunk and the 19th Century imagery that inexplicably became prevalent in the late Sixties. The resulting psychedelic Victoriana features contemporary dancers, curiosities of nature, magic lanterns of psychedelic imagery, steam-powered cosmic house, psyched-out-disco and coal-fired techno.
The happening is editor's choice at Flavourpill, recommended by Time Out and is gig of the month in February's DJ mag.
