Melt Yourself Down is the sound of Cairo ’57, Cologne ’72, New York ’78, London 2013. A riot of colour and noise, they rip the heart from the remains of Acoustic Ladyland and deliver it to the party, still beating. Reanimated with intense, sweaty funk, uplifting horns and blistering Nubian drums, this tightly drilled unit make their live debut at Queen Of Hoxton on October 18. Six musical heavyweights with more energy than the sun. Ancient and modern, and dirtier than you want to know.
Recordings will follow. Just you wait.
