GLOK+ BEATOWLS + SEAGOTH
Andy Bell of pioneering shoegazers RIDE is parking his Space Station in low Earth orbit to take the GLOK-mobile for a spin to a Future Yard on 14th October, as part of his UK autumn tour. GLOKtober offers a rare chance to see Andy performing live as his electronic alter ego, where he brilliantly weaves together throbbing dubbed-out acid, levitational psychedelia, Balearic, ambient, techno, Kosmische, shoegaze, art-rock and Compass Point-style post punk, with his virtuoso guitar playing and musicianship to the fore.
Support on the night comes from noir, atmospheric trio Beatowls, and psychedelic electro rock outfit Seagoth. Andy will be teaming up with mental health awareness charity Tonic for this run of shows, producing a special zine for the tour with a bespoke message from Andy.
Tickets on sale now.
GLOK as a live entity was born in 2022 with a mindblowing session recorded for Electronic Sound magazine, followed by two festival appearances at the Optimo/Ransom Note shindig Watching Trees and Convenanza, the gathering of the acid house tribes in France started by the late Andrew Weatherall.
All of these performances featured visuals by Innerstrings, who will also be joining Andy for the UK tour. Andy has reworked tracks from his acclaimed albums Dissident and Pattern Recognition, alongside unreleased tracks, with a similar improvised, one-man band approach to when playing under the Andy Bell Space Station name, but this time with an emphasis on the dancefloor.
TONIC - MUSIC FOR MENTAL HEALTH
Tonic provide support for people in the creative industry experiencing mental health difficulties. Tonic was founded in 2012 as a direct response to the lack of creative support for people experiencing mental health difficulties. It was founded upon the belief that participation in music and the arts can aid you in your recovery from mental illness.
To accompany this tour, Tonic will create a Zine with their groundbreaking technique (a simple exercise to help reduce stress/anxiety), with a cover and message from Andy Bell. These will be given free to everyone attending the GLOK dates.
