Steve Albini’s reliable cut-throat Shellac – or Shellac of North America as they occasionally style themselves – will curate All Tomorrow’s Parties‘ Nightmare Before Christmas later this year.
It marks the third time that Shellac have helped organise the festival – they curated in 2002, and joined forces with Mogwai and Tortoise for 2004’s Director’s Cut weekend. No acts have been announced at this time, though ATP promise 35 bands on top of Shellac, who naturally will headline. It will take place from November 30 to December 2 at the Camber Sands Holiday Centre, UK.
