Melt Yourself Down – 27 Feb 2013 at The Shacklewell Arms

A fabulous beast composed of various members of Acoustic Ladyland, Mulatu Astatke & The Heliocentrics and Transglobal Underground in Dalston, where else? Should be great or a spectacular mess.

Melt Yourself Down describes itself as “the sound of Cairo ’57, Cologne ’72, New York ’78, London 2013. A riot of colour and noise, they rip the heart from the remains of Acoustic Ladyland and deliver it to the party, still beating. Reanimated with intense, sweaty funk, uplifting horns and blistering Nubian drums, this tightly drilled unit return for their second ever show after selling out the Queen of Hoxton late 2012.”

Note: the show will now take place at The Shacklewell Arms, not the Sebright Arms as had been announced.
