We host a live performance from one of techno’s most seminal outfits, British Murder Boys. As part of our 20th birthday month, Surgeon and Regis come together to bring their brand of industrial to Room One’s Martin Audio sound system. Individually, the pair became renowned for pioneering a strain of heavyweight, no-holds-barred techno though the late 90s, helping to lay the foundations for a scene that’s still thriving today. In the early 2000s they united to put out a string of abrasive club weapons as British Murder Boys, most of which landed via their respective labels, Counterbalance and Downwards. They’ve since revived the project to perform a string of live gigs, where they showcase the same kind of noisy industrialist fare they’re best known for. This October, they come together in Farringdon for the first time for a special Thursday night XX session. Joining them is Samuel Kerridge, who prepares to air his new audio-visual live set in collaboration with Taylor Burch. Having recently joined forces for the experimentalist ‘The Other’ LP on Regis’ Downwards label, they’re currently linking up for a series of performances across Europe. We round out the bill with a local favourite of ours who’s been turning heads with her individualist approach to blending EBM, industrial, new wave and its offshoot styles, Faux Naïf.
