If the glorious lineup for this year’s festival wasn’t enough, we’ve added the fantastic Earthling Society – one of the most ambitious and exploratory bands out there reaching for the limits of guitar noise, tracing a line from the krautrock of Ash Ra Tempel to the head-nodding hypnotism of Wooden Shjips. They’ve played with Julian Cope, Damo Suzuki, White Hills and Hawkwind and take elements of each of those acts, weaving in elements of raga and jazz to create something entirely their own. Their extraordinary version of Alice Coltrane’s classic ‘Journey in Satchindananda’ achieves lift-off to another planet entirely.
So the full lineup for Audioscope14 is:
- Public Service Broadcasting
- Silver Apples
- Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation)
- Wrangler (Cabaret Voltaire/Benge/Tunng)
- Earthling Society
- The Doomed Bird Of Providence
- You Are Wolf
- Circle Traps
- The Neon Violets
- Kid Kin
We strongly recommend getting your ticket sooner rather than later as the show is proving very popular (of course!). Tickets are available from We Got Tickets.
We’ve also put together a playlist for Q Magazine if you want to listen to some of the bands and get excited!
