Bohren & Der Club of Gore

+ Special Guests

Supersonic Festival are delighted to welcome back Bohren & Der Club of Gore to Birmingham at the stunning Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, the first time they have graced these Midlands shores since 2012.

Bohren & Der Club of Gore hold their smoky line of doom-jazz in a sublime haunting that taps into that interzone between classic Lynchian motifs and fizzing gothic undercurrents. They will be performing just a handful of UK shows.

The self-styled “doom jazz” masters were spawned in 1992 out of a mutual love of all things heavy and unholy but channelled their impulses into inspiration not influence. Bohren's ineffable skill lies at lulling listeners into richly hypnagogic states. As they prize a deep sense of cool yearning that hearkens back to the slow burn atmospheres of classic film noir such as David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti’s soundtracks, dark ambient and the bluest jazz, plus the doom metal of Black Sabbath, Gore, and their dusty echoes in Earth.

It’s a velvet cloak for the senses; essentially a heavily tranquillising sound, but one fraught with an existential angst that’s won them a cult audience over the years.

“The band’s musical output is minimal, hanging on to notes until they vanish. They allow their instruments to inhale and exhale slowly. Time becomes immaterial." Crack Magazine
