Gateshead Jazz 2020
GoGo Penguin have been hailedas the “Radiohead of British Jazz”, but they draw equally on rock, jazz and minimalist influences, alongside the intricacy of Aphex Twin or Four Tet to create their punchy, experimental, but always beautiful music.
Their 2014 album v2.0 (Gondwana Records) was named a Mercury Prize album of the year alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle. In 2015 they signed to Blue Note Records and released the albums Man Made Object in 2016 and A Humdrum Star in 2018. Their EP, Ocean in a Drop (Music for Film) was released in October 2019 and they are currently mixing a new album for release in 2020.
GoGo Penguin are:
Chris Illingworth piano
Nick Blacka bass
Rob Turner drums
Joe Reiser sound
“the Radiohead of British jazz” (Line of Best Fit)
“powered by fluttering, junglist drums, slithering bass lines and an increasing bank of Enoesque digital manipulations. Hypnotic stuff.” (The Guardian)
