Sheep On Drugs
Micko & The Mellotronics
Advance tickets £12.50
Sheep On Drugs were formed in the 90s by Duncan X (a.k.a. King Duncan) (vocals) and Lee Fraser (a.k.a. Dead Lee) (guitar/keyboards) and currently feature Fraser and Johnny Borden (vocals/keyboards). Originally classified as part of the rave movement, the duo released a string of singles, including “Motorbike,” “15 Minutes of Fame” and “Track X” (later covered by Grace Jones as “Sex Drive”). “15 Minutes of Fame” reached the lower reaches of the UK Singles Chart as did “From A To H And Back Again”.
‘Experimental pop renegades’ R.O.C mix Fred Browning’s splenetic rages with Denver-raised Karen Sheridan’s cool plaintive vocals. Lauded by John Peel, Radiohead and Orbital, R.O.C collide pure pop with pure noise, performed with a full live band and videos from new album ’Bile & Celestial Beauty’: ‘the blend of crooked electropop, spaced-out country and midlife crisis remains alluringly unique’ (Uncut).
Micko & The Mellotronics are delighted to join the bill for this spectacular. Fresh off the release of new single “Noisy Neighbours’ (digital/wax), with new album to follow later in 2020. The Mellotronics feature former Siouxsie & the Banshees guitarist Jon Klein, and supported The Monochrome Set in autumn 2019. Frontman Micko Westmoreland also plays with supergroup The Spammed.
