Post subject: Jerry gig in Hull (Feb 2017) celebrates Basil Kirchin music Reply with quote

February sees the musical part of Hull’s City of Culture programme begin in earnest, with the first public appearance in the city since the 1970s of Cosey Fanni Tutti and Genesis P-Orridge. The event, on February 3, is part of a series commemorating COUM Transmissions, the subversive music and performance art collective, whose provocative work was to ruffle feathers before they moved to London and later formed Throbbing Gristle.

A weekend of concerts from February 17-19 celebrates the work of Basil Kirchin, the library music composer who Brian Eno once hailed “a founding father of ambient”. Among those performing are Hidden Orchestra, Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs of Saint Etienne and Jerry Dammers, founder of The Specials.

(Out of interest, one of Basil Kirchin's tunes was posted on the 'I could just see the Spatials doing this' thread.)

(I posted the above on the new site... thought I'd put it here also for the time being.)
