Now an institutionalised bimonthly installation on the London circuit, Fred Perry’s Sub-Sonic Live night next week returns to The Garage where pioneers are to be in plentiful supply. Curated by legendary disco whiz Greg Wilson, the Manc mastermind brings his so-called Reels Of Steel set to London for the very first time where he’ll be joined by hip hop progenitor Afrika Bambaataa, whose revered Planet Rock: The Album turns thirty this year. Tickets priced at £5 are available here although you can have a stab at winning a pair here.
And just as Wilson aims to celebrate the past whilst carving the future next week, having looked forward to the show we now look back to the last, conceived by esteemed Windsorian Andrew Weatherall. First up the Screamadelica producer opted for London/ Berlin pairing Night Angles, whose streamlined futuro disco-cum-sci-fi Morricone cut Space Lines streams below.
Weatherall also plucked Warm Digits out from the North: described by the psych powerhouse himself as “Machine funk kraut-a-delia”, their frenzied electro pummel Weapons Destruction is here for your immediate delectation.
