Before My Eyes III


Raime, Demdike Stare and Blackest Ever Black host the third of their occasional Before My Eyes parties in London tonight (Thursday 29 November), presented in association with BleeD.

The two sold-out past editions of this night, which offers “no policy, no programme, no promises”, have provided an entertaining insight into the record collections of the principals, covering a wide gamut of industrial, dub, post-punk, doom/drone and outsider pop music.

Raime (pictured above) have just released a well-received debut album, Quarter Turns Over A Living Line, on BEB [full disclosure: a label independently operated by FACT staff member Kiran Sande]; their DJ sets tend to be similarly dread-infused, but not necessarily as outright bleak – as anyone who caught their dancehall-centric Boiler Room set earlier this week will know. Demdike Stare, meanwhile, have been quiet on the release front since the completion of their Elemental tetralogy earlier this year, instead focussing their efforts on Concealed, an ambitious audio-visual live show that they premiered at Krakow’s Unsound festival in October.

Before My Eyes III takes place 9pm-2am in the intimate setting of The Waiting Room, Stoke Newington Rd., East London. Advance tickets for the session have sold out, but BleeD tell us that 50 will be more available on the door at £6 each, advising early arrival for those looking to snap them up.
