Information:

~~~~~~~ A WORM DISCO CLUB SPECIAL ~~~~~~~~

We're gonna melt your brain into your sneakers as we bring you the baddest musical sorcerers this side of Fantasia.

Worm Disco Club present; THE HELIOCENTRICS !

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's difficult to know where to start here, nine albums in ten years, both solo and collab (Mulatu Astake, Orlando Julius, Melvin Van Peebles, Lloyd Miller) covering Jazz, Movie Soundtracks, 70's Breaks & Funk, Afrobeat, Hiphop, Interplanetary Radio Transmissions...

Since their debut on Now Again Records, (sister label of Stones Throw) through the fantastic collaboration records on Strut Records and the two releases this year on Soundway Records, it's all next level heads-y grooves very few eight piece psych/funk/jazz bands can touch.

As an 8 piece with a hugely varied array of instruments and sounds on show, The Heliocentrics shift space and time through their collective musical third eye - and we dig that!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Heliocentrics shall be performing with Barbora Patkova, singer from the 2017 Soundway Records release "A World of Masks."

This is the first time they've toured & recorded properly with a female vocalist, opening up the music to new depths - certainly a little bit of classic Portishead in the musical atmosphere created here.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THIS LEGENDARY ACT ARE PLAYING IN BRISTOL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MANY YEARS AND WE ARE SUPER EXCITED TO BE ABLE TO PRESENT THEM TO YOU.

WITH A FULL AUDIO-VISUAL SHOW, WE SHALL BE TRANSFORMING THE MAIN HALL AT THE KUUMBA CENTRE INTO A PSYCHEDELIC BOUDOIR OF WARMTH, COLOUR AND SOUND.
