Factory Floor help celebrate 50th birthday

Bristol’s Arnolfini Gallery celebrates its 50th Birthday this September, and as is befitting of such an occasion they are putting on a selection of events including a rather special gig featuring Factory Floor”¦

The gallery website states the gig will be “A suitably off-piste and art-haus 50th birthday party bill featuring a score of class acts from music’s underworld: pulverising machine groove from London’s Factory Floor, radioactive torchsong caught in the dub-punk echo from Bristol’s Anika, and unpredictable subversion with added bass weight from who-knows-where’s Hype Williams. New girl on the block H initiates us with impro-ritual sounds from lo-fi spheres, while Optimo’s JD Twitch ices the cake and spins the plates till late”

Tickets are available now £8 ADV

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
