Event Details

A double headline techno-industrial-rave-punk tour from these two long-standing purveyors of onstage disarray and mischief...

SHEEP ON DRUGS

British techno/Industrial music group formed by Duncan X (a.k.a. King Duncan) (vocals) and Lee Fraser (a.k.a. Dead Lee) (guitar/keyboards) and currently composed of Fraser and Johnny Borden (vocals/keyboards). Originally classified as part of the rave movement, the duo emerged in the early 1990s with a string of singles, including 'Motorbike', '15 Minutes of Fame' and 'Track X' (later covered by Grace Jones as 'Sex Drive'). This tour is in support of Sheep On Drugs new vinyl LP album Does Dark Matter. Out now on Bandcamp and available to buy on the tour.

MECHANICAL CABARET

Emanating from an as yet un-gentrified Victorian back-alley of old London town, Mechanical Cabaret​ is the music, lyrics and voice of techno-punk front-man ​Roi Robertson​, together with synth-obsessed Stephen James Bellamy.

Roi and his Mechanical Cabaret have been entertaining and provoking audiences around Europe for two decades. As well as playing many headline and club shows of their own, they’ve also supported the likes of such influential musical luminaries as ​Fad Gadget, Nitzer Ebb, Suicide, DAF, Karl Bartos of Kraftwerk, The Damned, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Frontline Assembly, The Young Gods, Client, T.Raumschmiere, Alien Sex Fiend, A Flock Of Seagulls, Clan Of Xymox, Mesh​, and more.

Founded in 1999, Mechanical Cabaret combine edgy, off-kilter melodies, throbbing bass, and downright filthy analogue synthesizer experiments, with a plethora of sampled found-sound, techno/electro beats and an energetic, post-industrial-pop sensibility. Coupled with Roi’s deadpan baritone and sardonic lyrics, the resulting package is delivered with a healthy dose of, typically British, dark humour.

With the release of their new album Disarmingly Charming​ in September 2019, they’ve put out 9 albums as well as many singles/EPs to date. They’ve worked with several record labels along the way, but have chosen to self-release their material from now on, via their own label Zos Kia Records.
