Live Music Night: Nope and In Zaire

Sunday 16 January 2011 / Doors open 6.45pm Performances start 7.15pm / £4 entry


Nope and In Zaire drop into MK on their UK tour for a special Sunday show.

In Zaire come from Sunny Italy via Berlin. You may recognise a couple of members from being excellent Lightning Bolty noise-rockers GI Joe. In this guise they explore further the afrobeat trance-party territory hinted at in their two-piece form with an extended line up of layered voodoo rhythm percussiveness, wacked-out noise, and spiritual chantish vocals. 

Nope are a related beast emerging from the bleaker landscapes of Yorkshire’s thread-towns, moors and valleys. Psychedlic washes of synths provide the backdrop for pounding unrelinquishing note repetition and thump-drumming that may call to mind a beefed up Neu! and other Krautrockers. The members CVs include big-noise duos That Fucking Tank and Mucky Sailor.
