The legendary House Of God celebrate 25 years in the game. None other than Surgeon and Regis' British Murder Boys are joined by Giant Swan, a new duo who keep alive the flame BMB started, pushing UK techno relentlessly forward with the same raw sound and punk attitude.
British Murder Boys, Giant Swan, DJ Bus Replacement Service
As part of our 25th Birthday celebrations, House of God deliver a monstrous doubleheader.
Part 1 - HOG are very proud to present an evening of live electronic music featuring
BRITISH MURDER BOYS - There’s no doubt that British Murder Boys laid down the blueprint for the current techno sound and it’s never been bettered.
They continue the Great British traditions of the ritual accumulation of sexual energy, punk attitude, black humour, provocation, angst music for sex people and not taking yourselves too seriously while taking things very seriously indeed.
GIANT SWAN - Giant Swan is the brainchild of Robin Stewart & Harry Wright; an acerbic marriage of energised, aggressive dance music, quaking bass and hypnotic electronic noise. Across a table of machines and pedals, incorporating abused guitar and liberal vocal manipulation, Giant Swan create a cross-breed of hypnotic bass, industrial percussion and disorientating energy delivered with telepathic intricacy.
Vital players within Bristol’s Howling Owl collective and with strong ties to the city’s deep musical heritage, Giant Swan are a maelstrom of potential energy, bleeding between several sonic movements that both obliterate and invigorate. Building on a foundation of rhythmic tension and frenzied improvisation, no two performances are the same as the duo re-build and destroy their twisted vision of techno-not-techno.
DJ BUS REPLACEMENT SERVICE - The diligent work of DJ Bus Replacement Service offers empirical evidence you can not only polish turds, but make them positively glisten. Ignore the gospel at your peril.
Part 2 of our Double Header is an allnight HOUSE OF GOD after party at Monastery Digbeth.
