The fiercely independent Punk/Jazz/Funk quartet Red Snapper play a full live set at The Garage on December 1st. Following up from their critically acclaimed seventh album Key and a series of live dates at the world’s most important festivals over the Summer, they now embark on a UK tour sure to make the delights of the legions of hardcore fans the band has amassed over the years as well as any neophite hoping to see one of the most hardheaded and original bands around. Support comes from bass merchant Kidkanevil.

Red Snapper pioneered their unique brand of ghostly sonic landscapes, ripping machine gun rhythms and bone shaking bass during one of the most fertile periods for electronic music in the UK. Standing tall in the company of The Prodigy, David Holmes or Massive Attack the band stood out from the crowd for their fully live performances in which they took traditional jazz instruments and shred them to fuck with their sheer energy and raw funk; an energy they retain to this day, with the added benefit of experience and their unwavering commitment to evolve their sound all the while ignoring the siren calls of the commercial mainstream.

Make sure you catch this essential band playing Live at The Garage on December 1st.

Support on the night comes courtesy of Kidkanevil. A young electronic producers signed to First word records who has made a name for himself by producing some of the weightiest and bassiest beats around. Not for the feint hearted.
