with Matthew Falloon support
Expect a real sense of occasion as two extraordinary voices from the realm of UK music royalty are brought together
for this rare live outing. Green Gartside’s band, Scritti Politti, combined punk’s raw energy with gritty experimental
sounds and strident melodic pop. After four critically acclaimed albums in the ‘80s and ‘90s, they delighted their fans in 2006 with a comeback and Mercury Prize-nominated album White Bread, Black Beer. Alexis Taylor fronts acclaimed synth-pop outfit, Hot Chip. His solo work consists of stripped-back, deeply personal piano-driven melancholia. One of merely a handful of performances, this double bill features top-drawer musicianship, exquisite vocals and genuine warmth between the artists.
