The Big Untidy are pleased and proud to announce a concert by Barcelona-based mutant jazz artists Blood Quartet and the superb hard-rocking young bucks Thunder On The Left. They will be joined on the bill by muscular local old skool punks Order#227.
Blood Quartet arrives at the Big Untidy to present their first LP Deep Red, released by Feeding Tube Records (USA) and distributed in the UK by Cargo. Blood Quartet features Mark Cunningham (former member of the pioneer ’70s no wave group Mars and serial collaborator with Lydia Lunch, Arto Lindsay, Pierre Bastien, Pascal Comelade...) and the members of underground avant-rock band Murnau B, and came together in early 2015 in Barcelona.
“Blood Quartet plays insanely great avant garde rock music. Angular no wave guitar lines weave through bass-heavy rhythms and Mark Cunningham’s trumpet achieves something akin to what Chet Baker might have done if he’d flipped out and gotten into the French acid scene in ’68. Light, strangely wound tones that really don’t sound like anyone else I can name. The music on Deep Red starts off sounding subtle, but it grows in power with every spin, and will eventually suck you down into its magnificent vortex.” - Byron Coley
Admission only £8 on the door (or £7 in advance from WeGotTickets).
