This may be of interest to some of you. I've booked a tour for Datashock. Info below:
Datashock are coming over to the UK from Germany next month for only their second ever UK tour. It's difficult to outline what to expect - their line-up is ever-changing and can reach 8 or 9 members, although there will be 5 of them for this tour. Foxy Digitalis said they are "natural heirs to Double Leopard’s mantle as lords of mind melting drone" and that sounds about right to me.
They have done releases on Textile, Chocolate Monk, Curor, Tape Tektoniks and many others. They have collaborated/had split releases with Family Battlesnake, Aiden Baker, Robedoor, Gastric Female Reflex, and many others, and played shows with the Nadja, Xiu Xiu, Hair Police, Aids Wolf, The One Ensemble, etc.
We're still looking for a show on 10th March somewhere south/midlands if possible, though anywhere would be good. The dates in full:
6th Nottingham, The Chameleon (w/The Amber Sleep)
7th Brighton, Westhill Hall (w/Ampism-Nyoukis-Spicer/Polly Shang Kuan Band/End The Agony)
8th London, Second Layer instore
9th London, The Miller (w/Blue Sabbath Black Fiji/Team Brick/Diva Abrasiva)
