The work of recently rediscovered electronic tyro F.C Judd has been twisted into all sorts of unexpected shapes on a new remix LP from Public Information.
To celebrate the release of Interpretations On FC Judd, Public Information are convening two corking bills – one at Manchester’s Islington Mill, one at Bristol’s The Cub. The Manchester show takes place on May 30, and sees Pye Corner Audio top the bill. The Head Technician has a natty way with woozy techno and house, and can be expected to transport some of Judd’s pioneer spirit into a 4×4 context. Joining him will be No Pain In Pop/Kaleidoscope singer/producer Karen Gwyer and synth fanatic and home recording buff Ian Helliwell.
June 7, meanwhile, will see trombonist/bass explorer Bass Clef performing under his Some Truths alias, dedicated to tinkering with modular electronics. Ekoplekz – he of scores of venturesome analogue synth releases over the last two decades will club up with Mordant Music skipper Baron Modant for a rare show as Emmplkez. Young Echo breakout Vessel will also be joining forces with cohort El Kid for an off-the-cuff laptop/drum machine deconstruction of Judd’s works, and Gwyer will also stop by.
