Red Snapper’s remarkable debut album, Prince Blimey, received worldwide acclaim for being a daring, pioneering piece of work, bringing a distinctive and wildly original melding of acoustic and electronic elements. It is an album which has inspired many and which still continues to draw new generations of listeners to its beautiful and unique soundscapes.
In celebration and recognition of the 20th anniversary of the release of Prince Blimey on Warp Records, Red Snapper follow their hugely welcomed return to London with a Village Underground appearance with another run at the altogether more intimate yet similarly stripped back setting of Archspace. The performances will be faithful to the sounds and aspirations of the album when it was first released in 1996 and acclaimed as a ground breaking collection with its distinctive drive and darkness.
The original core of the band – Rich Thair on Drums, David Ayers on Guitar and Ali Friend on bass – will be performing the album together with the saxophone and keyboard skills of George Crowley.
These shows promise, in typical Red Snapper style, to be something exceptional and rewarding and likely never to be repeated. Make sure you’re there to witness it.
