Sutcliffe Jugend

Legendary Power Electronics and Industrial music pioneers Sutcliffe Jugend have been challenging listeners for thirty-six years. They have created some of the most extreme and intense electronic music ever heard. Kevin Tomkins’s screaming vocals and Paul Taylor’s relentless Guitar and Synthesizer assault make for an irresistible experience. After playing shows all over the world, including Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Spain, France, Italy, Germany and of course their home country England, SJ return to the USA ten years after appearing at the No Fun Fest in New York. With a new sound and the band not leaving the stage until they have nothing left to give, makes them one of the most exciting live bands around at the moment. Their most recent shows in Europe include Wroclaw Industrial Festival, WGT Festival, and Maschinenfest.

Their intense, relentless and at times ecstatic live performances create a trance like wall of sound, virtually unmatched in any genre are guaranteed to blow any audience away.
Classic albums in the genre by Sutcliffe Jugend include ‘We Spit On Their Graves’, ‘This Is The Truth, ‘Pigdaddy’ and ‘With Extreme Prejudice’. Recent albums include possibly their best run of albums yet, including ‘Shame’, ‘Offal’ and new 2xCD album ‘The Hunger’. Also released early 2017 was the stunning 6CD instrumental box set ‘SLAVES’. Recently they also released a spoken word album with American poet Matthew Soko.

This may be your only chance to see these pioneers at the top of their game. Do not miss out.

Whatever rise to the synthesizer came later on in the ‘00s is hardly of any concern to Greh Holger and his Hive Mind project. Having released private press cassettes of solo synth works as far back as 2002, Hive Mind exists as enigmatic in world of new-jack synthheads and the tidal wave of “neo kosmische” that goes with it by flying far under it’s radar.

No blisscapes to be found here. No soaring latched arpeggios, no cosmic vistas. Not a single melody. This is two sides of ancestral ruin in its clearest and most focused presentation. The brutality of the Earth and the harsh reality of all that it holds. Unknowable sounds - that of the dawn of the Earth, or perhaps the sound of its demise. A toxic swamp of chemicals and mutated organisms left behind long after man has wiped himself away for good. Field recordings from the end of the world.

While others are racing for the stars, Hive Mind’s tetonic plate shifting and brutal rumble will give you a brand new way to look at modern synthesizer composition with a focus on textural sounds and shifting frequency registers.
