After the sell-out success of the last SFA after party following their Roundhouse shows in Nov 2007, the Furries are returning to Corsica Studios to throw another all night warehouse bash. Straight after their Somerset House show on July 18th they’ll be hot-footing it over the river with a host of their favourite DJs in tow - except the music this time will involve a very different type of acid…..
After the all-out techno onslaught of their last event with sets from Andrew Weatherall and Evil Eddie Richards, this time they’re taking a trip back to explore their deep-fried acid-folk origins.
Expect wild and wonderful DJ sets from SFA members Gruff Rhys and Guto Pryce themselves, buckets of psychedelic freak beat fuzzy madness from special guests Cherrystones (Whatever We Want, Poptones), Andy Votel (Twisted Nerve, B Music, Finders Keepers), Pete Fowler (Monsterism) and fellow patriot Huw Evans.
Next door there’s a whole other room of mutant techno from Cian Ciaran’s Acid Casuals plus a slick mixture of kraut-rock, cosmic disco and techno grooves from Allez Allez, Jagz Kooner (Sabres of Paradise), Copious Breaks & Tomahawk – Psychemagik and the Kosmische Club DJs.
Add to the mix a selection of mind-bending visuals, B-Movie trailers, kaleidescopic light-shows and – believe it or not - a Kool-Aid bar - and you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was some Merry Pranksters’ gathering in Haight Ashbury at the tail-end of the sixties not 21st Century Elephant & Castle.
