An avant-rock supergroup, bringing together Colin Newman of seminal art punk group Wire, Robin Rimbaud, better known as visionary sound artist Scanner, and Malka Spigel from Minimal Compact. As individuals, their work has traversed experimental terrain between performance, installation, photography, music and visual art. Since forming Githead in 2004, they have produced two albums, showcasing their distinct take on space-rock, electro-pop, punk, dub and the avant-garde, yet always imbued with a cyclic, hypnotic funkiness. This rare UK live performance will be followed by an
in-conversation with writer Michael Bracewell.

Presented in association with Elena Hill, this Arnolfini event is part of Contemporary Art Programming’s continued exploration of Staging Sound.
