Hosted by Love Thy Neighbour and with support from two of Brighton's finest electronic acts - Inwards and Merlin Tonto, the show also features special guest Peter Brewis (best known from Field Music).
Warm Digits is made up of Newcastle-based duo Andrew Hodson and Steve Jefferis.Their music is (unsruprisingly) warm, melodic and electronic, with their live shows fusing together live drums, synthesizers, and guitars with psychedelic live visuals to create their memorable live show. They have previously toured with Moon Duo, St. Etienne and British Sea Power as well as playing a host of music festivals and the live score for a film called ASUNDER (both in Sunderland's Empire and London's The Barbican), collaborating with Field Music and the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
Wireless World is a pseudo-concept album, based on the way that the present day is finely balanced between progress and collapse. The songs are crisp, driving and atmospheric, with genres such as krautrock and techno being blended together at times to make it a modern-day hybrid, and possibly their most interesting work to date.
“‘Wireless World’ flickers between rich, widescreen ambition and polyrhythmic playfulness.” – loud & quiet
“Newcastle’s premier kraut-funk-rock duo” – uncut
We visited The Prince Albert last week for an acoustic set from Billy Lunn (from The Subways) and were reminded what a great venue it is. For the beer lovers, there are plenty of real ales on tap (including one on special offer for £2.95 per pint - not a price you see often in the city centre). The atmosphere is quite hip but not too hipster, with plenty of seating options from the outside benches in front of the entrance, to the beer garden at the back and the living room sections inside. There is currently scaffolding on the front of the venue but it is still very much open.Upstairs the venue is quite cosy, but pack the room with music fans and the vibe is like nowhere else in Brighton. PLEASE NOTE: The upstairs bar is cash only (nearest cash points are inside the station just a couple of minutes away).
