Be Prepared shared their event.
January 3

Well, its been a while.

Be Prepared is back to celebrate its 10.4 year anniversary with an evening of delicious electronica. We're delighted to present Fieldhead whose Home Assembly album 'We've all been Swimming' was one of the highlights of last year. It'll be their first London show in four years. You may have seen them supporting Loscil a while back.

We're also super excited about Shape Worship playing for us. His 'A City Remembrancer' album from a couple of years back ...was ace. Like us, he's not played a gig in a few, so a rare chance to watch him and a first chance to see some new material.

Be Prepared added an event.
January 3

Be Prepared for:

Fieldhead: Paul Elam has been making beautiful ambient music, enhanced by Elaine Reynolds' violin playing, across several albums and many countries. Fieldhead’s recent ‘We’ve all been swimming’ is exceptional though- immersive and cinematic. This is their first London show in four years.

“...a concise and inspired attempt to reduce electronica down to the things that matter, with a narrative and sense of longing pervading the album reminiscent of Clark or Bo...ards of Canada.” Boomkat
“...recalls the musics of Colin Stetson and Philip Glass, though the emergence of a booming techno pulse points the material in a clubbier direction…" Textura

https://homeassemblymusic.bandcamp.com/…/weve-all-been-swim…

Shape Worship: investigates the human cost of destruction and development in London through a woozy electronica prism. Its as if the Ghost Box roster moved to the city and took a darker turn.

"[Album a City Remembrancer]… layers field recordings, speech samples and rhythms from the UK hardcore continuum into one inscrutable tapestry. It's among the year's densest, most arresting experimental records.” Resident Advisor

https://fandf.bandcamp.com/album/a-city-remembrancer

D. Glare: half of DIY Leeds' bangerz Chrononautz, over three releases D. Glare has been pushing different limits of psychedelic techno. His double tape on Opal Tapes is relentless, his new tape on Zona Watusa is restrained and tense. Hell yes.

"D Glare... offers up a relentless attack on the senses and little reprieve.” The Queitus

We are all really sorry to hear about the death of Chris Tenz. Be Prepared put him on three times over the last couple of years and we remain big fans of his music. He clearly had some serious problems, but he certainly didn't lack for friends who tried to help him despite incredibly painful circumstances. In his last week Chris spoke with the Samaritans. If you feel like donating to help people who find themselves feeling like they're in a similarly hopeless situation you can do so here: http://www.samaritans.org/support-us/donate-online

Thanks to everyone who came down on Friday, to the acts who played, and to those who helped out spreading the word and on the night at the venue. Here's a rather nice write up of the event, via Fluid Radio: http://www.fluid-radio.co.uk/…/loscil-schneider-kacirek-jo…/

Under the green and blue lights, Schneider Kacirek stepped up to the stage and got things started. It was their first live show in London. As a church and as a music venue, St John’s at Hackney is a wonderfully impressive building.

John McEntire 9:15pm...
Loscil: 10:10pm

Be Prepared mix between artists
