Red Snapper PRINCE BLIMEY SHOW 2017
De show start om 20:15 uur.
PRINCE BLIMEY, the remarkable debut album by RED SNAPPER, has long been acclaimed as a ground breaking and pioneering piece of work, with its distinctive melding of acoustic and electronic elements. It is an album which has inspired many and which still continues to draw new generations of listeners to its beautiful and unique soundscapes.
So in celebration and recognition of the 20th anniversary of the release of PRINCE BLIMEY on Warp Records, Red Snapper will perform it live in its entirety in a series of shows across the UK and Europe. The performances will be faithful to the sounds and aspirations of the album when it was first released in 1996 and it was acclaimed as a ground breaking collection with its distinctive drive and darkness.
Many of the pieces have never been performed live before and so the shows promise to be something exceptional and rewarding and likely never to be repeated.
The performances will aim to create a snapshot of the world around the release of PRINCE BLIMEY, with original compelling artwork and imagery as part of the experience; from a time when Red Snapper’s ‘Fuck off jazz’ was railing across Europe.
The original core of the band – Rich Thair on Drums, David Ayers on Guitar and Ali Friend on bass – will be performing the album together with the saxophone and keyboard skills of Tom Challenger who has been with the reformed Red Snapper for 9 years.
