astral social club
Astral Social Club is the pseudonym of one Neil Campbell, a man whose involvement in the UK’s experimental music scene has been well documented. Through his work with the Vibracathedral Orchestra and the Sunroof! guise he has consistently amazed and enthralled listeners, not only bringing together a huge legion of fans but also managing to influence countless young acts. This latest work sees the astral traveler moving into further realms and finally putting a capital ‘c’ on club, bringing in 4/4 beats into the psychedelic fold for a change. You think I’m kidding, I can tell, but I’m being deadly serious, pitted head-on against the shimmering beauty of Campbell’s synthesized pads and patented drones are pounding warehouse beats, the sort of beats you’d expect to hear at some disused Birmingham lock-up, not in the recorded output a man best known for making jams that out-psych Sunburned Hand of the Man. It’s no bad thing though, and as you can probably imagine this ain’t your ordinary dance music as Campbell uses the teutonic beats to inform the path of the devastating drones and noise that grows around them. This is Neil’s first London show for a long while under the ASC guise.
Rare London show (first in a few years) Kylie Minoise. Dynamic noise made by Englishman Lea Cummings who currently resides in Glasgow. Also to be found collaborating with Nackt Insecten as KMVSNI, again with Nackt Insecten & WWCat as Temple Of Static Christ and as part of the band Opaque.

“…not hippies but striving for that late night monster psych jive… Heavy telepathetic improvisations, dipped in a hazy psychedelic mayhem, from lulling numbness to fierce noise outbreaks.”
