This has to be one of the maddest sounding local gig listings to crop up this year.
Immortalised in song on The Fall's 1985 album This Nation's Saving Grace and worshiped by the alternative crowd for his improvised lyrics, sung in no particular language, with legendary Krautrockers Can, Damo Suzuki is coming to Gillingham! Well it makes perfect sense. But not only is Damo bringing his mystical ramblings to the River Medway, Kent, he will perform them to a select crowd of 100 inside a moored 40 metre steel-hulled lightship vessel, otherwise known as the LV21. Of course. Aided by local music 'sound carriers' UpCDownC, it was never going to be a sit down gig at your local, which is just as well really. So stock up on your nautical phrases, batten down the hatches (or something) and prepare to drink like a fish:
Sat 24 September – Damo Suzuki with UpCDownC at Lv21 – Lv21, Gillingham, UK (super limited tickets on sale in Aug)
