Tunng’s Dead Club project is a striking thing. “It’s not just a record, it’s a discussion, it’s a podcast series, it’s poetry, it’s short stories, it’s an examination,” says the band’s Mike Lindsay. It tackles the still near-untouchable subject of death and the record itself is extraordinary: contemplative, intimate, celebratory. It includes collaborations with Max Porter, who wrote two new pieces for the album, and draws on the research the band conducted — nods to the Wari people of Brazil, discussions of consciousness and memory, Genders’ visit to a death cafe in Sheffield, and the Swedish art of Death Cleaning. It touches on personal loss, fear, and humour and sorrow and love. “We wanted it to be colourful and we wanted it to be kind of uplifting,” says Lindsay. This concert is presented by Bristol Beacon.
