Glasgow Music and Film Festival presents
Wed 23 Feb 2011 | 7.30pm doors | £9 + bf
Parisian duo Zombie Zombie, self-confessed analogue freaks, kraut-disco devotees and “crazy scientist musical project”, are also renowned horror movie obsessives. Inspired by the legendary film soundtracks of Goblin, last year’s Glasgow Music and Film Festival saw the Parisian duo perform music from the films of John Carpenter, expertly raising and lowering the pulse of the crowd to recreate the thrilling emotional crescendos of the classic horror movie through their nouveau psych music. They went on to tour the show all around Europe, as well as releasing a CD of Carpenter’s music produced by Joakim.
For this special event, the band will recreate the live score of Sergie Eisenstein’s seminal 1925 film Battleship Potemkin – possibly one of the most revolutionary propaganda films of all time.
N.B. Programme may be subject to change due to film rights clearance.
ABOUT GLASGOW MUSIC AND FILM FESTIVAL //
Now in its third year, the Glasgow Music and Film Festival is lovingly co-curated by film buffs and music geeks at the Glasgow Film Theatre and the Arches. A series of specially commissioned, one-off events combining audio and visuals, the results range from the entertaining, to the inspirational, to the downright weird.
This show is 14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+)
No forthcoming events
Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
