+ NERVOUS CONDITIONS
+ TERRY HALL / DON LETTS / GRAEME PARK (DJ SETS)
WEDS 6TH DECEMBER 2017
A rare chance to see two of the most exciting bands of 2017 at London's iconic 100 Club.
The Moonlandingz are an experimental supergroup comprising of members from Sheffield electro-analogue outfit the Eccentronic Research Council and fronted by Fat White Family's frontman, Lias Saoudi.
Since releasing their critically acclaimed debut LP 'Interplanetary Class Classics' earlier in 2017 The Moonlandingz have sold out headline shows and become one of the most talked about bands on the year's festival lineups. With all members of the group having commitments to other projects outside of The Moonlandingz, this may be one of the last opportunities to see them in a live setting for some time.
Gloriously defy the ability to bracket them: An eight-piece band that takes the free spirit of the original jazzmen smashes it into punk and creates something viscerally new. You might reference The Pogues, early Dexys, Pigbag, The Fall, The Clash... and you still wouldn’t be able to pin it down. The most intriguing and young live band on the scene right now.
Although undoubtedly best known for his seminal work with The Specials and Fun Boy Three, Hall's list of past projects reads like a who's who of the last 30 years of popular music. Collaborators have included: Dave Stewart, Bananarama, Sinead O'Connor, Ian Broudie, Tricky, Gorillaz, Dub Pistols and Lily Allen, to name just a few.
Don Letts came to notoriety in the late 70's as the DJ that single-handedly turned a whole generation of punks onto reggae. It was whilst as a DJ at the first punk club 'The Roxy' in 1977, that Don adopted the punk D.I.Y ethic and begun to make his first film 'The Punk Rock Movie'.
Acclaimed Haçienda DJ, Graeme Park became a champion of early house music from Detroit, Chicago and New York while working in a record shop in the early '80s. His groundbreaking DJ sets came to the attention of The Haçienda's Mike Pickering, who asked Graeme to DJ at the legendary Manchester club. He quickly became a central figure in the emerging dance music scene that swept Britain in the late '80s.
