Soundcrash are excited to welcome back Red Snapper to the stage, fresh from a sold out Scala show with Venetian Snares + Luke Vibert! This time, a full live headline show at the intimate Rich Mix, 30 January 2015 to showcase new material as we continue the celebrations for the Launch of their brand new album ‘ Hyena’
The new Red Snapper album displays how much the band have raised their game. There’s no reason why bands shouldn’t get better over time, it’s just that a lot of names don’t stay hungry and creative…
RED SNAPPER release their new album ‘Hyena’ on September 15th 2014 on Lo Recordings – An album inspired by the band’s recent soundtrack for cult 70s Senegalese road movie “Touki Bouki” – the first independent African film which was recently restored by Martin Scorcese and which is first and foremost an afro-funk odyssey in itself. A psychedelic Afrofunk journey deep into the band’s dark waters…
This promises to be their best album in a decade, a timeless, African influenced album which has as much to do with the future as it has the past. The intimate showcase marks a unique opportunity for fans to hear exclusive new material. and the energetic live performance that they’re known for.

Joining the band on the night are Flies & Flies who, since emerging half-formed from the wreckage of an art project gone wrong, have taken their distinctly dark and deeply melodic ‘rhizomatic pop’ to packed shows in venues ranging from a disused dentists surgery to Glastonbury Festival. Combining electronics, strings, guitar and voice, their brooding sound occupies a smoky hinterland between the warm comedown glow of Mogwai, Jeff Buckley’s reflective late-night hymnals, the apocalyptic transmissions of Godspeed You!
