Huntleys & Palmers

January 20, 2009

Our friends over at Huntleys & Palmers have started 2009 the way they owned 2008 – with a bang. First up they have the Hamburg based Solomun (Sonar Kollektiv, Diynamic Music, Compost) on Saturday 31st January who will be blessing Glasgow’s newest jewel on the crown Stereo for a night of emotive techno and house that is sure to entertain right from scratch.

On Saturday 7th of February sees them welcome another intriguing guest in the shape of chief doodler, David Shrigley. The Glasgow based artist is known the globe over having exhibitions in galleries in New York Paris, London, Barcelona and Gateshead.

Herr Shrigley has directed videos for the likes of Blur and Bonnie Prince Billy, and has paired lyrics from Talking Heads frontman David Byrne’s Songbook with the likes of Deerhoof, Franz Ferdinand and Thestashbox favorites Grizzly Bear. Expect the unexpected in Stereo for this, just remember to bring your dancing shoes.

In true Huntleys & Palmers fashion, not a  month passes without another sterling guest  and this time they team up with long term cohorts Curious Curious to bring the soon to be stars Heartbreak to Stereo on Friday 27th of February for a night of Italo and 80’s throw back music that would have a parapalegic giving their life funds to stem cell research for a boogie on Stereo’s dancefloor. On warm up duties as ever will be the unassailable David Barbarossa with his magic box of 7 & 12″s to keep the masses knocking into the wee hours.

Its also worth following Huntleys & Palmers myspace for future guests, announcements and mixes. The following mix is what you can expect to hear from Huntleys & Palmers resident Andrew Thomson, containing some oddities, rarites and favourites. Pretty across the board ranging from Afro, folk, synth-pop, psyche, weird electronics, disco, etc.
