As temperatures hurtle ever upward, Supernormal are delighted to confirm a further embarrassment of underground riches, with the emphasis on innovation and intrigue. From the balls-out rifferama of Ten Benson to the trance-like acoustic repetition of Woven Skull; from the mercurial acoustic strains of Patrick Duff to the party-hearty midnight trip down the alter ego of Mothersbaugh & Co. of Ill Devo, horizons are navigated and synapses shifted at all turns.
Moreover, we’re delighted to make Supernormal a much more explicitly international affair this year – not only welcoming pulverising Dutch doomlords Ggu:ll over for their first UK show (an audio-visual collaboration with Mancunian maven KHOM) but partnering with the Blue Tapes label to bring over two uniquely head-spinning Japanese electronic acts in Check!!! and Leedian.
New additions to the music programme as follows:
BUCKNER BUILDING * DEATHCOUNT IN SILICON VALLEY (live soundtracking NOSFERATU)* DUNNING/WEBSTER/UNDERWOOD * GGU:LL * 12 HOUR FOUNDATION * ILL * ILL DEVO * INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE* JOEL CAHEN * LORDS OF THYME * OSCILANZ * OXFORDSHIRE FOLKLORE TAPES: MICHAEL PAN & THE SANDFORD LASHER * PATRICK DUFF * SNAPPED ANKLES * TEN BENSON * TENEBROUS LIAR * TRUMMOR & ORGEL * WOVEN SKULL *
Blue Tapes Presents: LEEDIAN – CHECK!!! – MAP 71
