The Quietus' favourite research institute pay a visit to Salford

What's that? The Eccentronic Research Council are playing Islington Mill in Salford? When? This very Saturday, July 26? And with Maxine Peake?! You must be having me on! No, we're not! And this official-looking tickets page proves it. A mere £12 of your hard-earned will get you "an evening of words and pre-digital sonics", including tracks from their two albums heretofore, 1612 Underture and Magpie Billy & The Egg That Yolked ​(​A Study Of The Northern Ape In Love). Plus, you'll be in the presence of Adrian Flanagan, author of a Baker's Dozen so mirthful, it collectively reduced tQ to giggling pre-humans, bereft of the power of language. Go, buy a ticket now before regret rains 'pon you.
