Haruomi Hosono + Acetone: Light in the Attic

Silk St London Greater London

A rare chance to see a trio of artists whose music has been re-released by Light in the Attic Records on their 16th anniversary

A founding member of the influential Folk Rock band Happy End and pioneering trio Yellow Magic Orchestra with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono anticipated trends in Exotica, Ambient and video game music in his almost five-decade career. Yet, he’s never before played his solo work in the UK, until tonight, as he performs with his live band.

Drawing from the blissed-out Surf Rock of the Beach Boys and the Psych-Country of Gram Parsons, Acetone were the sound of Southern California. Marking their first UK performance since the tragic death of fellow founding member Richie Lee, guitarist Mark Lightcap and drummer Steve Hadley perform with Senon Williams and Jason Yates.

Willie Thrasher is an Inuvialuit musician from the Northwest Territories of Canada. Singing with his partner Linda Saddleback, his music mixes Rock n Roll with his Inuit culture exploring tradition, people, and environment. Willie has featured on the Grammy-nominated Native North America (Vol. 1) compilation.
