We are thrilled to be rounding off the summer months at Future Yard with the Merseyside return of Ex-Easter Island Head, in a very special, one-off, intimate in-the round show, following sell out headline shows throughout the UK this year and ahead of their appearance at Birmingham’s legendary Supersonic Festival. Pushing musical experimentation to its minimalist limits EEIH are a collective composing and performing music for solid body electric guitar, percussion and other instruments. Primarily performing as a quartet, the group incorporates multiple electric guitars augmented through mechanical preparations and extended techniques to create works that explore group interplay, repetition and melodic invention through purposefully limited means. They perform in the round for us on at Future Yard on 31.08, allowing you the audience to get up close and personal to their free-flowing genius.

Tickets on sale now.

Their records Mallet Guitars One –Three, Large Electric Ensemble and Twenty-Two Strings have been released to significant critical acclaim from the likes of The Wire, Pitchfork, the Quietus and the New York Times. The group have received airplay on the BBC, ABC and more with their music favourably compared to the likes of Steve Reich, Glenn Branca and John Cage. Their two volumes of library and production music for EMI/KPM Mechanical Landscapes One and Two – have seen use on television and radio productions internationally.
