Last year’s Tor Ist Das Festival was one of my favourite events of the year – the music, the people, the sight of Maniac from Mayhem pouring hot candle wax on himself in a pulpit whilst reciting Aphrodite’s Child lyrics.
Those lovely Tor Press people are doing it again – this time without Was Ist Das?, now based on Arizona of all places – and with a stellar line-up.
Not only that, but due to Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club / Vibracathedral Orchestra) having to pull out, I’ll be joining David Colohan (Raising Holy Sparks / United Bible Studies) in providing music between the bands on the Saturday. On cassette. There’s also going to be a ‘tape roast’ in the nearly Golden Lion on the Sunday which is going to be immense (Zig & Zag have been mentioned).
There are still tickets left, here
