We are off to Newcastle at the weekend to run the streaming for Tusk mini
A one-day version of TUSK Festival at the wonderful Star & Shadow. TUSK’s trademark manic eclecticism sees a growing line-up already featuring Swedish proto-punk brainbombers NO BALLS; Shanghai noise monster TORTURING NURSE; French psych/prog legend RICHARD PINHAS; ANNIHILATING LIGHT – the murderous combination of Stefan Jaworzyn and Heather Leigh; crystalline yet bass heavy Italo-Belgian opal tapers LUMISOKEA; steaming Mancunian psych septet DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE VENTURA, Newcastle’s shape-shifting tape abuser POPULAR RADIATION; the infamous, in-your-face BONGOLEEROS and much more still to be announced.
And we’ll have another of our amazing film programmes, Derek Walmsley of The Wire delivering another of his great talks, and of course TUSK’s typical ear-warping DJ action from DJ Callan and Ben Jones, the usual mouth-watering merch mountain, plus the very reverend RICHARD DAWSON as Master of Ceremonies.
The day will run from noon til around 1am and costs £15 – tickets are on sale now at www.tuskfestival.com and will be available via wegottickets.com very soon.
TUSK Mini is produced by Tusk Music with the support of Arts Council England, PRS Foundation For Music, Sound And Music, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and our media partners The Wire magazine.
