Savages and Bo Ningen for joint ‘improv’ date

‘Words to the Blind’ will feature “improv, noise and poetry”.

London-based noiseniks Savages and Bo Ningen have been announced for a joint live date in the capital.

‘Words to the Blind’ will feature the bands performing a ‘simultaneous sonic poem’ at east London’s Oval Space, where we’re told to expect “a ferocious battle of improv, noise and poetry”.

The one-off date is set for 19th November, with tickets priced £15.

“A unique experiment inspired by the Dadaist concept of simultaneous poetry – when poems were being recited at the same time in different languages, adding up to a powerful overall effect” is how the Barbican website describes the event.

See a trailer for the show below.

Savages released Top 20 debut album, ‘Silence Yourself’ last year, while Bo Ningen released third album, ‘III’, earlier this year. Savages’ Jehnny Beth featured on a re-recorded version of Bo Ningen’s ‘Nichijyou’ in 2012.
