Public Service Broadcasting, Silver Apples and more team up to fight homelessness at AUDIOSCOPE festival
The unique sound of electro-archivists Public Service Broadcasting will top the bill at this year’s Audioscope festival in Oxford, heading a cast of acts all raising money for national homelessness charity Shelter. The day-long festival also offers a rare opportunity to see electronica legends Silver Apples, one of the most influential electronic artists of the past sixty years, playing the first Oxford show in their 47-year history, and many other excellent bands.
Audioscope 14 will take place at The Jericho in Oxford on Saturday 8 November. Tickets are available now for £15 in advance from www.wegottickets.com/audioscope
Full lineup: Public Service Broadcasting / Silver Apples / Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation, Flying Saucer Attack) / The Telescopes / Wrangler (Cabaret Voltaire/Benge/Tunng) / You Are Wolf / Circle Traps / The Doomed Bird of Providence / Kid Kin / The Neon Violets
All profits from the festival go to Shelter. Audioscope is now in its fourteenth year, and has raised more than £27,000 for the charity so far. Since 2001, the festival has brought leftfield and alternative musical highlights to Oxford, and previous shows have starred the likes of Four Tet, Wire, Explosions in the Sky, Damo Suzuki (Can), Clinic, Michael Rother (Neu!), Grumbling Fur and Deerhoof.
Audioscope has also released two albums earlier this year:
Music for a Good Home 3: 31 new and exclusive tracks from alternative musicians around the world such as Amon Tobin, John Parish, Future of the Left, Seefeel and Grumbling Fur.
Music For A Good Home – Oxford Edition: our snapshot of the vibrant Oxfordshire music scene with 19 tracks from artists such as Kid Kin, Jess Hall and Toliesel.
The albums are available via www.musicforagoodhome.com and audioscope.bandcamp.com for a minimum donation to Shelter.
