Two of the most pioneering forces in Newcastle’s illustrious and diverse experimental music community, promoters TUSK Music and avant-garde duo Yeah You, are joining forces for a day-long festival of boundary-pushing and brain-melting splendour at Live Theatre on Sunday 10th July.

Comprised of Gustav Thomas and Elvin Brandhi (Will and Freya Edmondes, father and daughter and both incredibly prolific and pioneering artists in their own right) have steadfast earned the title of the “Frank and Nancy of freeform electrosplurge” with their visceral and oft-improvised compositions completely dispensing with any semblance of convention in favour of hyper-kinetic, visceral barrages of samples, beats, noise and free-form vocals. It’s a collaboration that has seen them perform the world over, with a recent appearance at the iconic French festival Sonic Protest.

Joining the duo is free-improv stalwart Pat Thomas, Lebanese electronica producer Liliane Chlela, voice artist and cellist Audrey Chen, the legendary London-hailing Bohman Brothers, multi-instrumentalist Lukas Koenig, and the multinational trio Mopcut. Although there is a standard ticket price of £10, TUSK is also implementing their discrete Pay What You Can policy, which ensures that the event can still remain accessible to all those who wish to attend, regardless of the funds they have available.
