First, we want you to know about some imminent Matmos shows: On Sunday July 22nd, Matmos will perform at the 603qm space on Alexanderstrasse in beautiful downtown Darmstadt as part of our participation in the 46th Annual Darmstadt Ferienkurse. The concert starts at 10 pm and will involve many new participants and collaborators. You don’t have to be a composer to attend: plain old everyday human beings are also welcome.
On Monday, July 6th, Matmos will perform in London at the Southbank Centre as part of Antony’s Meltdown with some help from our Baltimore pals Owen Gardner and Sam Haberman (Horse Lords, Pleasure Wizard, Teeth Mtn, etc.) and o F F Love will also perform. There’s more info about this show, and the galaxy of miscreants that Antony has bundled together, right here. Consider this your counter-Olympics.
Okay, taking a deep breath for the BIG BIG NEWS: We are very pleased to announce that Matmos has signed to Thrill Jockey Records, distinguished purveyors of quality audio with a noticeable thang for Baltimore residents of late. Thrill Jockey will be releasing some new Matmos recordings and they will make more announcements about that shortly. Thanks to Bettina and all who sail with her! We’re going to take part in the Baltimore and New York concerts in honor of the 20th Anniversary of the label, and you can find lots of information about lineups and locations at the Thrill Jockey website, which is right here.
