BAD DIMENSION with MUGSTAR live
Saturday 26th March 2011
8pm - 2am
The Horatia, 98-102 Holloway Road, London
MUGSTAR are the sound of 10,000 suns exploding, pulsing with organic energy, pounding like a supersonic mantra with shades of Sonic Youth, Neu!, Oneida and Pink Floyd. Since emerging in 2002 from the ashes of guitarist Peter Smyth's fondly remembered krautrockers Kling Klang, MUGSTAR have toured tirelessly with noise compatriots that include Mogwai, Melt Banana, Acid Mothers Temple, Clinic, Fucked Up, Mike Watt and Part Chimp. They famously recorded the last ever of John Peel's legendary Peel Sessions. Revolving around locked krautrock rhythms, blisteringly heavy psychedelic riffs and turbo-charged grooves, MUGSTAR's latest album 'Lime" was released on Important Records in October 2010. This will be the first show in London since the release.
The Horatia is a beautiful big boozer on Holloway Road with a hefty club soundsystem, recently reopened by the team behind Shoreditch's Horse and Groom. At the end of every month BAD DIMENSION collides kosmische disco, mutant funk, punk and psych to create analogue raves of supermassive proportions, powered by propulsive rhythms, motorik beats and tripped-out fuzz from the 60s to present.
