The last one seems to finish an hour earlier - I'm guessing that's a typo

These are either covert boc gigs, or it's just really sad there's a market for boc-inspired gigs even though they should be perfectly able to do gigs themselves.

 

I hope these gigs will be fun though. This is just some covert attempt to kick boc in their nutsacks.

it's not a covert BoC gig

 

this has come about just from me and kev (DJ Food) talking about how much fun a night of BoC and BoC-inspired music

(ghost box / com truise / tycho / mileu / one-on-twoism / bola)

plus old 60's/70's synth led soundtracks, bits of movies like beyond the black rainbow, killings at outpost zeta, old FBoC documentaries, etc....

 

then we just said "fuck it, lets do it ourselves" and spoke to a local venue with a nice soundsystem that had an unbooked evening, and contacted a couple friends who did the AV/DJ thing, worked out some projectors and screens we could borrow, and made some flyers.

 

started looking through the BoC catalogue at edits / remixes we can do as one-off's on the night. some fan made-videos that can be VJ'd in. things like that...

 

there's not much more to it than that. seems lots of people are really into coming along though! response has been unexpectedly positive - loads of emails and messages from people massively enthusiastic to come along... i think the warp crew might have missed a trick by not doing this themselves :-)

I remember seeing a flyer on watmm a year or so ago for a similar Aphex themed night (was in Belgium perhaps).

Good luck with this, who knows, maybe they might turn up???

Great night - massive thanks to everyone who came along.

 

Really good vibes, busy from start to finish, all the DJ/VJs played excellent sets - hopefully we'll have some more video & audio sets to upload soon.

Here's the Posthuman DJ set from 11:30-12:30 last night, all tracks by BoC - dancefloor focused set!

      My album this week is a reissue of the ambient classic from 2001. It's been going for silly prices on Discogs these last few years. However, it's just been re-issued on vinyl and digitals.

      "An almost forgotten but bona fide Ambient classic floats up on a 20th anniversary edition with the legendary Glasgow-based Ampoule label, newly remastered with a bonus cut for added immersion - highly recommended to fans of BoC, Balil, Porter Ricks.
      Still every bit as woozy and gouched-out as we remember, Pub’s gingerly wistful debut album ‘Do You Ever Regret Pantomime?’ is a cult classc for those that know; a sublime example of a peculiar sound at its sensitive best. Back in 2001 it saw lots of rotation at our auld shop Pelicanneck and has since become prized for its effervescent melodies and light-touch drum programming that acknowledged and parsed influence from then-contemporary hip hop and post-rock as much as the prevailing trends of ambient and minimal techno. 
      A plangent, elusive sense of nostalgia that arguably prefigures modes of hauntology beautifully percolates the album, dwelling on a melancholy state of mind that, with hindsight, speaks to a timeless sort of wistfulness and tentative tension surrounding the early years of the millennium - which now seems incredibly distant and naive in the midst of 2020’s shitstorm. The tracks are perhaps detectably burred with a gently rolling accent and crepuscular glow that we’d attribute to Pub’s Scottish provenance and which clearly resonates with BoC, so it’s maybe best to play this album after theirs, when its vaporised textures and thizzing melodic tendrils will best work their exceedingly subtle yet palpable magic."
