STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL #173
Austin / NYC’s INSTITUTE are coming back to London with their new record ‘Readjusting The Locks’ on Sacred Bones Records in tow. First time back in London in three years!
Our special guests for this show will be Barcelona’s FATAMORGANA and their various smoke machines. Formed in Barcelona in the summer of 2017, Fatamorgana sprang to life from the hearts and minds of Patrycja Anna Proniewska (Belgrado) and Louis Harding (Good Throb, Lux, Minima). What began as a bedroom project of sorts (monophonic synthesisers, 4-track cassette recordings) the project soon blossomed into a functional live unit. They recently released an excellent LP on La Vida Es Un Mus which you can check at this link:
Tense, bass driven and synth heavy with frantic drumming and cold, direct vocals, gelid guitar-less post punk that is equal parts sparse and cosmic. Think of a mix of KUKL with NO DEFENCES jamming with X-MAL DEUTSCHLAND and you may be getting there. A full length LP is finally coming later this year.
