HUGO RACE & MICHELANGELO RUSSO: JOHN LEE HOOKER’S WORLD TODAY Tickets
6:00pm, Sat 27 January, 2018
Spotted Mallard, MELBOURNE, VIC
Hugo Race and Michelangelo Russo are no strangers to either Hooker or the blues.
Hailed as a supreme influence on the music of their band Hugo Race & The True Spirit, Race and Russo's reimagining of Hooker is simultaneously blues, electronica, avant-garde and ambient, a homage to one of the greats of rock and roll prehistory. Recorded in a single, continuous day and night live session at the Berlin studio of Einsturzende Neubauten engineer Boris Wilsdorf, this is an epic album of sonic sorcery suspended in time and place on the 100th anniversary of Hooker's birth. Release date May 19th, 2017 through Glitterhouse Records and Gusstaff Records in Europe, and Rough Velvet Records/MGM in Australia. Race and Russo will tour JLH's The World Today in Australia, July-September 2017.
With special guest Amaya Laucirica.
