...kind of. Seasoned UK experimental psychedelic band strip back to a duo and undertake R&D tour looking for spontaneous live collaborations

The now decade old exploratory band GNOD are celebrating the start of the next phase of their existence with a research and development tour and are looking for musicians and artists to collaborate with.

GNOD (R&D) is a stripped back version of the band consisting of co-founders Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam and they are looking for new collaborators. (Former sonic allies have included Tony Surgeon, Charles Hayward and White Hills.)

They announced in a statement recently: "R&D will find Paddy and Chris improvising with new instruments, sounds and ideas with the option of collaborating with various musicians along the way. There will be an open stage at Gnod (R&D) shows and people are encouraged to get involved be it singing, shouting, dancing, bringing an instrument/device to the table or just simply tuning in and coming along for the ride.

"Folk are invited to come and make some weird noises with us. They can either show up on the night or preferably send us an email at prior the gig."

The tour has already moved through Italy and Slovenia and the following UK dates are planned:

07/12/17 - Corsica Studios, London
08/12/17 - Broadcast, Glasgow
10/12/17 - Exchange, Bristol
