added to the bill for Tuesday!
Volcano giveth: Their show with LCD Soundsystem in Ireland was cancelled so, instead of tooling about looking pissed off they're coming to White Heat to play Live for us and they're bringing their tour support / band member / friend / all round good guy Bobby Birdman too!
Volcano taketh: K-X-P were due to fly in for the second to last ever Optimo in Glasgow on Sunday & White Heat on Tuesday. Fear not though - they'll be back with us later in the year.
Horse and Condor
Formed by Steve Webster (formerly Fort Lauderdale and The Black Neon) in 2008, Higamos Hogamos released their critically acclaimed debut album for DC Recordings in Summer 2009, a cosmic epic which somehow incorporated elements of rock n roll, electronic experimentation, kosmische and wyrd English psychedelia. Two incendiary live shows in Paris and London followed but after this the band inexplicably disappeared, but now Higamos Hogamos are back!
Featuring a new line-up consisting of Whetham Allpress on drums and Dr Andrew Robertson – a maverick developer of musical software in his own right at the Centre For Digital Music Research Lab in London – on guitar and electronics, the new live show sees Steve Webster’s studio vision realized in a remarkable and pioneering new fashion for the live arena. In March and April Higamos Hogamos will be releasing two brand new limited edition EPs on new imprint All Time Low, followed by new album "Atomized". The band will follow this with a European tour
K-X-P were going to be flying in from Finland and so, because of that volcano, cannot! We'll be getting them back sometime July / August
hopefully. Also hopefully be getting someone to take their place - check Twitter [whiteheatclub] for details.
Horse and Condor are captained by our White Light regular DJ Jamie who's veteran of about three bands we've had on at White Heat. Think a kind of motoric, danceable rhythm with a vocal that, while not dissimilar to a certain ascerbic northerner is still all its own.
