For those of you unaware of uber cool, cult label Warp Records, well then, it’s time to get acquainted.
Housing a roster of innovative, mostly electronic artists, from Aphex Twin to Broadcast and beyond, they’ve cast an undeniably important print on the music scene today. So when they launched a film company in 2004, it wasn’t long before this too, would play an integral role in British independent pop culture.
A decade on, having released a slew of brilliant independent films such as This is England, Submarine and more recently Berberian Sound Studio, Warp Films are holding a series of reissues and live gigs celebrating this pretty momentous occasion. And tomorrow night at the BFI Southbank, you can be a part of this with the London premiere of the live re-score and screening of Shane Meadows’ and Paddy Considine’s iconic film Dead Man’s Shoes.
The line-up of musicians includes Gavin Clark (Clayhill, UNKLE), Joel Cadbury (UNKLE, South), Ali Friend (Clayhill), Ted Barnes (Clayhill), Jeff Wootton, Daisy Palmer (Goldfrapp) and Helen Boulding. Both performances feature a special introduction from Paddy Considine.
And if that aint enough for ya, then post show DJs including Pablo Clements (UNKLE) play an eclectic electronic mix until 1am.
See y’all there!
