Apocalyptic shows, ear-numbing psychedelica meets kraut, with a raft of high-profile fans: Primal Scream, TV on the Radio, The Fall ... Bo Ningen is firing on all cylinders. With their intense and unpredictable performances, this band is one of the most exciting live acts to emerge from the UK. What if Black Sabbath and Neu! had a noisy lovechild? Bo Ningen!
Taigen (vocals, bass), Kohhei (guitar), Yuki (guitar) and Monchan (drums) hail from Japan originally but met each other in London. After a long time spent jamming and improvising, Bo Ningen finally saw the light of day. Three albums and gigs at Glastonbury, Coachella and Fuji Rock would follow. Their collaboration in 2013 with post-punk phenomenon Savages led to the highly acclaimed album 'Words to the Blind'. "Seismic, Boredoms-worthy psych-metal eruptions", wrote Pitchfork at the time.
Bo Ningen is coming to Vooruit for the first time for a gig that already looks set to take the title of 'most memorable live show of 2019'. Ear fodder for fans of OOIOO, Boris, Moon Duo and other idiosyncratic noisemakers!
La Gauche is the new lovechild of Rodrigo Fuentealba (Manngold, Fifty Foot Combo, Tsubasa Hori,...), Maarten Van Cauwenberghe (multi-instrumentalist and composer with Lisbet Gruwez’s Voetvolk dance company), bass player Nicolas Rombouts (Ottla, Dez Mona, Guido Belcanto,...) and drummer Jeroen Stevens (Gruppo di Pawlowski, DAAU, King Dick, Manngold,...).
La Gauche was born out of a discomfort. La Gauche cranks out a maelström of sound constructed through collective spontaneous composition edited into spellbinding performance material. The band draws its influences from electronic music, minimalism, maximalism, protopunk, Test Dept, Don Cherry and The MC5. La Gauche unites. La Gauche is radical. La Gauche is bourgeois. La Gauche is dead.
