Their previous visits to the UK have included a tour with Sonic Youth as well as an appearence at the Vincent Gallo curated All Tomorrow's Parties earlier this year. If you haven't seen them yet and like your live bands to be as ingenious as they are insane, or if a whirlwind in a bubblegum factory sounds like your idea of fun, put these dates in your diary:
18 Edinburgh Cabalet Voltaire
19 Glasgow Stereo
21 London Luminaire (with Leopard Leg + Spin Spin The Dogs)
22 Brighton Pavillion (with Electrelane as part of Ladyfest)
23 Bristol Fiddlers
