We are delighted to announce a not-to-be-missed musical emsemble with a twist to play live at BT City Square before Wednesday night's game...
Acid Brass began in 1997 as a collaboration between Turner-Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, the Stockport-based Fairey Brass Band and Rodney Newton who created all the brass arrangements. Deller saw a connection between the two apparently disparate genres of traditional brass, acid house and Detroit techno, viewing them as "authentic forms of folk art rooted in specific communities".
The music has since been taken all over the world, and was performed by the Fairey Band before a London crowd of 25000 in July 2005.
And they're bringing it to City Square this Wednesday night!
Have a listen to some Acid Brass for yourself...
