Public Service Broadcasting, Silver Apples And More Team Up To Fight Homelessness At Audioscope Festival

Public Service Broadcasting, Silver Apples and more team up to fight homelessness at Audioscope Festival.

Those fine people at Audioscope, who’ve been tirelessly devoting their spare time to raising money through music for the national homelessness charity Shelter, have just announced details of the band’s playing this year’s Audioscope Festival.

Regular Louder Than War readers will know all about Audioscope’s splendid compilation albums (which can all still be bought via their Bandcamp: audioscope.bandcamp.com), but this is the first time we’ve passed on news about their Festival which this year takes place at The Jericho Tavern in Oxford on Sat 8th Nov, 2014.

The list of band’s confirmed as playing are:

  • Public Service Broadcasting
  • Silver Apples
  • Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation, Flying Saucer Attack)
  • The Telescopes
  • Wrangler (Cabaret Voltaire/Tunng)
  • You Are Wolf
  • Circle Traps
  • The Doomed Bird of Providence
  • Kid Kin
  • The Neon Violets

Tickets are available now for £15 in advance from wegottickets.com/audioscope.

From the press release:

The unique sound of electro-archivists Public Service Broadcasting will top the bill at this year’s Audioscope festival in Oxford, heading a cast of acts all raising money for national homelessness charity Shelter.

The day-long festival will take place at The Jericho in Oxford on Saturday 8 November and also offers a rare opportunity to see electronica legends Silver Apples, one of the most influential electronic artists of the past sixty years, playing the first Oxford show in their 47-year history.

The festival also features Wrangler, the exciting new band from members of Cabaret Voltaire and Tunng; breakbeats, noise and folk all in the same set from Third Eye Foundation’s Matt Elliott and experimental shoegazers The Telescopes.

Audioscope’s eclectic lineup continues with cutting-edge electronica from Circle Traps, dark tales of Australian history from The Doomed Bird of Providence and extraordinary multi-layered vocal gymnastics from You Are Wolf.  In addition, The Neon Violets and Kid Kin, two of Oxford’s most thrilling discoveries, will bring their lysergic psych-rock and crystalline electronics to the stage.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
