Teeth Of The Sea and tQ ed John Doran take to the decks for a cool Yuletide celebration

Head to King Charles the First in King's Cross this Saturday, December 14, for a festive special of tQ editor John Doran's funk/afrobeat/krautrock/space rock night Cosmic & E Beat. He'll be joined on DJ duties by long-standing tQ favourites and creators of one of our albums of the year, Teeth Of The Sea, and proceedings start at 8 pm - head to the Facebook event for full details.

By means of introduction: "Since their initial formation in 2006, the London-based Teeth Of The Sea have metamorphosized into the most adventurous and intrepid psychedelic rock outfit in the UK. Taking on board influences like Ennio Morricone, Eno, Delia Derbyshire, Goblin, Frankie Knuckles, Butthole Surfers and Harmonia, they’ve arrived at an incendiary sound that effortlessly marries the aural enlightenment of a far-reaching avant-garde sensibility with the reckless abandon of trashy rock & roll immediacy. They take to the decks with your host John Doran to make it a cool yule of motorik and funky sounds from psychedelic space.

"Expect drinking, dancing and vivid shirts."
