Nick Cave will be the special guest next Thursday (April 8) at the first night of the Mini-Meltdown Festival at London SE1 Royal Festival Hall Purcell Rooms, the three day event organised by Mute Records boss Daniel Miller.
Nick will join former Bad Seeds bandmate Barry Adamson onstage as well as introducing the event.
Also playing with Barry on Thursday are The Mute Allstars – Pan Sonic, Simon Fisher Turner, Andrei Samsonov and Add N To (X) – who will all be onstage together and separately at various times performing a live soundtrack to a film called A Page Of Madness by Japanese director Kunagassa, an extraordinary black and white film made in 1926.
Faust and Richie Hawtin (aka Plastikman) headline the two subsequent nights (9, 10).
Some tickets are still available from the venue. Telephone number: 0171 960 4242.
