Nik Turners New Space Ritual (HH)+ support Port Erin

The SPACE RITUAL are Nik Turner (vocals, sax, flute), Terry Ollis (drums), Thomas Crimble (keyboards, vocals), Stephen Jones (guitar, vocals), Gary Smart, [bass], Chris Purdon (audio generators, synthesizers) and Miss Angel (dance).

The current SPACE RITUAL was formed 2015 A.D., through the psychic need to unite the tribes, to power the Starship to new dimensions of time, space and awareness, raising the Consciousness and Spirits in Harmony and Brotherly Love, reviving the Lost Magic, lost Music, lost Flames, one Soul, one World, one Source, one Race, one love, be there or be square. Nik, and Terry are founder-members of the, original legendary band, Hawkwind, and Thomas a featured member at the ground-breaking Festivals at the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury].

The band play modern spacey/ rocky/ jazzy/ dancey/ science/ fictional/ fantasy/ spiritual/psychedelic music, to heal and raise spirits, consciousness and awareness, promoting communication and good times, getting high, using multimedia sound/light/visual imagery to create extremely wild, whacky, wondrous weirdness in mind-boggling mind-blowing experience, each performance truly a happening.

The SPACE RITUAL have played many prestigious festivals in Britain and abroad including Glastonbury, Wickerman, Guilfest, Weyfest, and at many prestigious venues including Brixton Academy, London Astoria and many happenings in the Outer Galaxies, the Milky Way, Xibalba, and many other off-world destinations to ecstatic crowds of Sentient Beings. We look forward to seeing you.

Their recent album Otherworld (Esoteric Recordings, ECLEC2011) was received with acclamation, and they are currently in the studio recording a new album to be released later this year. Watch this space, we are not alone.

Garnering near-cult status as purveyors of original genre-bending music, Port Erin are a band of three. Two brothers- Reuben Myles Tyghe, vocals and guitar, flanked by Jacob Myles Tyghe on bass and Cerys Brocklehurst on drums. They hail from Broughton Gifford (a very small village tucked away in South West England) and formed in January 2007.

The past decade has seen them extensively tour the U.K. performing over 600 shows at some of of the U.K.’s most prestigious venues. They have made appearances at many festivals including; Glastonbury Festival (‘10, ‘11, ‘13 & ’14 ), played live sessions for BBC Introducing and their music has been aired numerous times on BBC Radio 6.

Their musicality is magnetic with tightly wound dives and grooves. Cerys and Jacob’s rhythm section is a solid unit, Reuben drifts in-at times controlled and soulful but with moments of cornered fretting. A milieu of sonic textures are at play with echoes of jazz, coupled with mechanical Krautrock undertones. They are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal.

Port Erin draw inspiration from the likes of XTC, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Morphine and Tortoise.
