“When Isaac Gracie introduced himself last year with the careworn and crackling ‘Last Words’, it signalled a young artist wearing his emotions on his sleeve and in control of a quite incredible voice. It sounded like a minor key classic, it still does, and it soon focused a burning spotlight on a young artist readjusting to the attention the song was demanding”.

“a poetic creature who channels a mysticism, haloing his sounds with a timeless quality” – i-D

“pastoral and folky songs recall everybody from Jeff Buckley to Ryan Adams” – NME

“melancholy-infused instant classics” – Sunday Times

The Doctor has returned and his feel-good walk-in centre is back in business.

Techno / Techno / Techno
Pitch Black celebrate their second birthday with a Halloween special. Joining them is a true underground legend in UK techno, the one and only Regis! Karl O'Connor is most certainly Regis and it is also highly probable that he propagates other pseudonyms. This has only added to the greater mythology surrounding the influential Downwards label that he has run with fellow art terrorist Peter Sutton (Female) since 1993. Unconventional and single-minded to say the least by decentralising the focus on the dj/producer personality, he remains one of the more highly regarded creative forces within the British techno/electronic scene. Degenerate art indeed.

Sunday 29th October 2017

Unfortunately this show is cancelled with no current plans to reschedule. 

We have a statement from the band here:

"Nobody likes cancelling a party. It’s a bummer to do it, and it’s a bummer to have it done to you. So we were pretty darn bummed-out when we got word that our appearance at the upcoming Transformer 2 festival in Manchester is being pulled, due to a venue downsizing or some shit like that. 

We’re extra-double bummed-out to announce that because of this, we have to cancel our shows in Glasgow (27/10) and Oxford (29/10). Sincere sincere apologies to the promoters, and most of all to those of you who were getting hype about partying with us. We hate doing this.
