Teeth Of The Sea Announce LP Playback

Master set to be played for first time at Quietus ed John Doran's new night, Cosmic & E-Beat

As we reported last week, Teeth Of The Sea are releasing their third album, Master (that's the artwork above), on October 7 via Rocket Recordings. However, before that date, Quietus editor John Doran, along with the band, is giving you the chance to hear the album in full a WHOLE MONTH before its release at the inaugural event of his new night, Cosmic & E-Beat. It'll be taking place on the first Saturday of every month at the King Charles I pub in King's Cross, London, and you can expect both John and TotS members to be unleashing their formidable disc jockeying skills at each and every event. This first occasion also handily comes the day after the Quietus' fifth birthday party at Corsica Studios (roll up, roll up, get your tickets here folks), so what better way to soothe your bruised minds than with the sonic balm of TotS' synth prowess?

Head to the Facebook event for full details - though you need remember but two things - the date, September 7; the time, 8 p.m. - and the Cosmic & E-Beat group to join. In the meantime, here's John introducing you to proceedings:

"'It’s been a long time I shouldn't’ve left you, without a strong beat to step to.'

"In 2001 Brian Eno said: 'There were three great beats in the 70s: Fela Kuti's Afrobeat; James Brown's funk; and Klaus Dinger's Neu!-beat.' (Mr Eno is a genius and his mind is always on higher things, so we can overlook the fact he probably meant the beats laid down by Tony Allen, Clyde Stubblefield and Klaus Dinger.)

"One can only agree that Funk, Afrobeat and Krautrock form an unbeatably badass trinity. But once you throw in some cosmic synth music and some space rock, you’ve got the basis of a pretty far out night of sounds.

"Cosmic & E-Beat will be brought to you on the first Saturday of every month at the King Charles I, King's Cross by your host John Doran of The Quietus, VICE and NOISEY, ably assisted by interplanetary synth rock fiends, Teeth Of The Sea.

"More details to follow soon..."
