Event Details

WARM DIGITS are Steve Jefferis and Andrew Hodson; a trans-pennine, krautophonic blizzard-wave duo that emerged from Newcastle upon Tyne’s underground scene with a sound like Neu and Cluster forming a supergroup with Giorgio Moroder, Kevin Shields, Eno and Keith Levene. Their first album, ‘Keep Warm… with the Warm Digits’, came out in 2011 on Newcastle’s Distraction Records; Andrew Weatherall described them as producing some fine “machine funk kraut-a-delia” and the duo were soon went on to headline one of his Live From Outer Space events. Live, Warm Digits are a motoric epiphany of drums, guitar and pulsing hardware, complete with mesmeric kosmische visuals; all that on-stage multi-tasking making their live sets a dynamic kraut-disco experience. The last few years have seen Warm Digits release a second album entitled ‘Interchange’, tour with British Sea Power and support the legendary Goblin, St Etienne, Future Islands and ESG. Warm Digits now have a new album out now on Memphis Industries, featuring vocal contributions from Field Music, Sarah Cracknell (of Saint Etienne), Devon Sproule and Mia La Metta (of Beards). Look out for some special vocal guests on the night of the show too! 

COMFORT are a queer punk two piece from Glasgow that make music that trades out guitar and bass for a more electronic/sample based approach. Pulsating bass, glitchy synths, crushed drums and vocal rhetoric all feature in their contagiously brilliant dialogue. Check out their first collection of songs titled ‘Built to Waste’ on their bandcamp now.
