Launching this Friday, January 25, Back To The Phuture is a new monthly night that mixes “new” and “established” artists and DJs at The Half Moon in Putney. Renowned as a major draw at Bestival, Back To The Phuture travels through time joining the musical dots of the past, present and phuture in their own immaculate style. By combining both new and established artists and DJs in one night, it introduces audiences to brand new bands, and new bands get to play alongside their heroes and influences.
British avant-garde post-punk band from the early 1980s, Pigbag marked the path for aspiring underground acts, particularly after their hit single ‘Papa’s Got a Brand New Pigbag’ reached number 3 in the charts in April ’82 and earned them two appearances on Top of The Pops. Exciting newcomers to the live scene, Perhaps Contraption are a twisted brass, art-punk eight-piece marching band. Chris Sullivan- Blue Rondo Al La Turk (DJ) DJ, promoter, musician and all round scene-maker, Chris was one of the real lynchpins of London’s dance scene throughout the ‘80s and headed up The Wag when it was the place to soak up new music. Mark Jones (DJ) is the man behind Wall Of Sound responsible for discovering, signing and releasing music from Propellerheads, Royksopp, Grace Jones, Reverend And The Makers, The Bees, Jacques Lu Cont, Aeroplane, The Jolly Boys, I Am Kloot, The Wiseguys, Blak Twang, The Human League and more.
Mark: “It’s great to be going Back To The Phuture at the classic venue The Half Moon Putney. The history of artists that have appeared at the venue is mind-blowing and the time has come to join the dots on some other music genres and dimensions and show the relevance of artists from then... and NOW!”
