Bringing filthy techno where it’s needed most.
It’s not easy being a fan of weird electronic music if you live outside of the big cities, so Yorkshire’s Golden Cabinet collective deserves a huge hand for bringing the uncompromising likes of Perc and Vatican Shadow to the sleepy town (so we gather) of Shipley in recent months.
Tickets have already been snapped up for February 7, when Objekt, M.E.S.H. and Marlene Ribeiro of Gnod will shake up The Kirkgate Centre, an old Victorian school with a capacity of just 100, but Golden Cabinet have just announced the next pair of shows at the tiny venue.
On March 28, Samuel Kerridge will jet in from Berlin for – and we may as well quote GC, here – “a jaw-breaking left hook of doom rumbling techno with massive blasts of low end frequencies to further initiate aural confusion.” Oh yes. North-east noise rock troupe Drunk In Hell will support, with another act still to be announced. Tickets go on sale soon, so keep an eye on the event page.
Then on May 2, Diagonal boss and expert selector of electronic grot Powell (pictured) will bring his bag of thumping EBM, no wave, post-punk and weird techno to Shipley, with support from Gum Takes Tooth and Conor Thomas. Tickets for that one are also on sale soon.
The tight capacity of The Kirkgate Centre means “those that do get in are guaranteed a really intimate show,” note the Golden Cabinet crew. “The downside of this space is that we can never use it on a Friday night because there is a Tae Kwon-do class happening in the main hall.”
