Lydia Lunch's HALLOWEEN Seance on Saturday 31st October 2015
Halloween is one of the most celebrated nights of the year at Islington Mill in the depths of Fat Outs Burrow. Rolling on from the success of last years collaborative, building wide event this year sees the queen of doom herself Ms Lydia Lunch enter the realm. Expect the unexpected as the building gets taken over by Wytches and you enter into the Occult of Islington Mill.
Lydia Lunch was voted by Time Out magazine as one of the most influential performers to have emerged from New York City. She has taught workshops in Performance Art at The San Francisco Art Institute, She has produced spoken word records, curated performance series in America and Great Britain, worked with dozens of luminaries in film, music and literature. She has written five books translated into seven languages, released over thirty LPS, and continues to be a driving force in art, music, and literature and her special forte—performance. Through music, books, spoken word performances, film, video, photography, poetry and a multitude of creative endeavors, Lydia Lunch has proven to be one of the most daring artists of the current era.
This 4 piece to be reckoned with play noisy, pop-influenced, guitar-led music. They pack their rough-and-gritty live sound with attitude, and now riding on the back of their second album ‘Wild Nights’ the group return to where it first started, Islington Mill. Expect something a bit more unusual from this set...
Water penetrates rock. Water is life and kills with ease.
Enter the ritual; Hear the waves crashing down as you're dragged into the undertow of bass beneath, hear the voices wail; the siren and the amazonian warriors await you. Let your instinct be your guide. Swim with us; at your peril. Water are a heady mix of artists, poets and musicians who've come together to create encounters which engulf the senses. Water have left audiences with a feeling of being part of something magical, intense and sometimes bewildering, but always powerful.
Manchester based ILL aim to fly into pure expression until euphoric heavy jump up and down noise is created. The sometimes structured, sometimes spontaneous compositions embrace the entire emotional spectrum and hold a furious energy close to their hearts. They believe in the power of disobedience, creating music until something tingles and performing dance noise until something bleeds.
Music Genres: Alternative, Punk, Rock, Spoken Word
