Playing bass for irrepressible stadium rockers Primal Scream would satisfy most musically, but not Simone Marie.
Her passion for DJing is as strong as ever and her deep record box reflects her wildly varied – but always on point – musical tastes.
Spiritland Talks: Anne Dudley & J.J. Jeczalik (Art of Noise) – (sold out)
This event is sold out.
We are delighted to announce a very special Spiritland Talks with two co-founders of Art of Noise, Anne Dudley and J.J. Jeczalik.
The Art of Noise are perhaps the UK’s most influential electronic music group, pushing a distinctive avant-garde pop sound created from a unique blend of synth-pop, classical music, film noir and cutting-edge sampling techniques, taking them from Dadaist studio experimentation to the Top Of The Pops studio.
Anne Dudley and J.J. Jeczalik will be talking to Ian Peel (founder & editor-at-large of Classic Pop magazine) through the creation of their third album ‘In No Sense? Nonsense!’, which is given a 50-track deluxe reissue on 2nd November via Warner Music. They'll also explore the history of the group and their varied collaborations, playing selections on Spiritland's world-class sound system.
Tickets are £30.00 and strictly limited to 60.
Please join us for this extremely rare chance to hear from Anne and J.J. and the music of The Art of Noise in the intimate surroundings of Spiritland.
An old head on young shoulders, weekend resident Minus returns for another session of his residency.
A weekend worker at Flashback Records and host of his own monthly radio shows on NTS and Balamii, Minus is a natural cratedigger, to be found playing anything from gospel to krautrock, disco and all stops in between.
Educated by everything from Klaus Wunderlich and Jim Reeves, via Motown, hairy rock and disco, to D-Train and Anita Baker from his family’s large record collection, Ian Wade found his tastes favouring electronic music upon first hearing I Feel Love in 1977, which pretty much shaped his mindset from there.
With a comprehensive career as a writer for various (and many deceased) titles across music and TV, Ian occasionally turns his hand to PR, makes music under the name Blood Everywhere and compiles playlists for Wadey’s Disco Kitchen.
