After Ian’s death the band had to make a decision to either stop or continue.

The choice was made and the band have continued making albums and touring the world.

Now after nearly a decade since Ian passed away, The Blockheads still perform to packed out venues around the world.

Band On The Wall / 25 Swan Street / Northern Quarter / Manchester Abtruse put on a night of techno in the intimate setting of Kraak with residents and friends.

As it’s their first Manchester based party of this year they felt that it was appropriate to keep it Manchester based, bringing in some quality djs from some of the best techno parties Manchester has to offer.

As well as residents they will be joined by Joshua Brooks very own Meat Free resident Lucy Ironmonger & Grey Area resident Habgud.

They are also lucky enough to have good friends the Blind Caribou lads (Nyctophilia) coming to party with them.

For their first dance Inside Out managed to secure the services of one of their favourite producers/DJs doing it today, Inkswel.

The self-confessed Australian ‘drum machine obsessive’ will be bringing his blend of outer-galactic boogie funk and mutant-house to the Soup Kitchen basement.

2015 has seen Inkswel deservedly join the esteemed likes of Jay Dilla, DJ Spinna, Kenny Dope in releasing an LP on the legendary BBE Music label.

Superfoods Vol 1 is the first in a series of three albums that provide a retrospective of his releases over the past 10 years with an album of brand new material featuring Spacek, Recloose, Kid Sublime and Colonel Red set to drop at the end of the year.
