A Midsummer Night’s Happening

SOLD OUT

A solstice celebration hosted by state51, Ghost Box and Trunk Records. Both record labels have invited a variety of artists and friends to perform at this very special party. There’ll be live music, artwork, film and merchandise spread across three specially designed and themed interiors: Pan’s Garden, The Youth Club and The TV Chamber.

The Midsummer Night’s Happening is a private party open to a limited number of invited guests and friends. To receive your exclusive invitation, pre-order the limited edition print of Julian House’s event poster from either the Ghost Box or the Trunk Records shops.

The evening will start in with a live performance of Justin Hopper and Sharron Kraus’s  Chanctonbury Rings, accompanied by visuals by photographer Wendy Pye. The evening also marks the release of the album.

Then Wisbey will take the stage, he of Dirty Fanmail fame and, who could forget, The Ladies Bras. He’ll be asking the audience to request their favourite soundtracks, which he’ll perform on the home organ in his own inimitable style.

Another Trunk Records performance follows next, The Kirchin Tape Lab with Jonny Trunk and his OST co-host (and member of radiophonics outfit Howlround), Robin “The Fog” Warren. They’ll be playing out live tape reels from the as yet, unheard archives of Basil Kirchin.

Next is a very rare chance to see the Soundcarriers. They’ll be in instrumental mode to perform a live soundtrack to a film by Ghost Box co-manager and graphic designer Julian House.

Pye Corner Audio will headline the evening with a live set of Martin Jenkin’s unique haunted dance music and submerged sci-fi epics.

There’ll also be…

An exhibition of Frances Castle’s Clay Pipe Music artwork,
DJ sets from Ghost Box, Trunk & Clay Pipe Music throughout the evening and later,
Join The Mangle to screenprint your own Julian House designed Midsummer Night’s Happening T Shirt.
A state51 shop with merchandise and records from all those taking part.

All this and fresh cooked food!

It’s All Happening at The state51 Factory, 8-10 Rhoda St., London, 21st June 2019, 6:30 until late.

Prints and invitations will be sent before the event.

One invitation admits one person, please bring it with you on the night.

Stop-Motion Happening & The Owl’s Map LP re-issue Pre-Order Now

 

The Owl’s Map was the second album for Belbury Poly, first released in 2006. It’s music that is by turns, jaunty and dark and was inspired by TV soundtracks, folk and library music and 1970s electronic music technology. It established the mood and the imagined geography of Belbury, the fictional parallel-world setting for the record label itself.

This re-issue has been specially remastered by Jon Brooks for this first outing on vinyl. Ghost Box designer, Julian House has adapted the original CD artwork to the new heavyweight vinyl format. It includes a colour card inner sleeve with a visitor’s guide to Belbury and a free download code card. The vinyl version is released on 14th July 2017 and you can pre-order it from our shop now. The re-mastered digital version is currently being re-distributed to all major download suppliers and will replace the older version by the release date on the 14th.  You’ll be able to buy the new remastered digital version from our shop on mp3 or lossless flac next week. (We’ll update the exact time of availability right here, as soon as we can.)

Also released on 14th July and available to pre-order now, is the new album from The Focus Group, Stop-Motion Happening. On LP, CD and DL.
