We present our new live 3 disc CD set: An Evening At The Hope & Anchor by Ulrich Schnauss, Nature Of Wires, The Rude Awakening & 1i2c.
Recorded live at a very special show at The Hope & Anchor in Islington, London on 27th July, 2019.
Disc 1 showcases the first two full sets of this special evening from Electronica wizard 1i2c and from SynthPop duo Nature Of Wires. 1i2c performs his debut live set, showcasing a great audience reaction. It’s live! Anything can go wrong.
Nature Of Wires perform songs from their catalogue and recent tours across Europe and the UK.
Disc 2 is the full set by ‘sleazy’ SynthPop duo The Rude Awakening.
They play their debut album Kaleidoscope in full – all 12 songs. This was a highlight of their 2019 UK shows.
Disc 3 is Ulrich Schnauss’s full set of a track titled Sanguine that was created live on the night.
Having Ulrich play at this show was a coup for everyone involved and his talent is shown perfectly on this disc.
All recordings were made on the night by Sound Engineer Richard Sherriff.
The 3 discs are housed in a standard DVD style case along with artwork that shows all four acts performing on the night and some words from show organiser 1i2c.
All acts except for Ulrich Schnauss are UK based musicians who are working hard to create the best possible music and live experiences.
All discs are full un-edited recordings including all audience reactions and inter-song banter. Performed in front of a small audience who loved every minute as can be heard.
“A seductively saucy set from The Rude Awakening at Hope and Anchor on Saturday night.”
“I’ve been a huge fan of Ulrich Schnauss for many years so it was amazing that he turned up to play
at Hope and Anchor on Saturday night.
t was a real delight to have a clear view of such a sonic craftsman at work, whilst
being immersed in the epic musical journey he was creating.
Thanks John for organising, and thanks to Derek for the tip-off (I was planning to go anyway,
but the possibility of Schnauss playing certainly sealed the deal).” – Matt Brock
“I’d never set up or organised an event before.I had never been on stage before either.
Within a few months I was not only producing my own music, but taken on the role of managing an
upcoming band ‘IAMWARFACE’. Matt, lead singer of the group & Darren, lead singer of ‘Legpuppy’
had both encouraged me to get up on stage.
Trying to secure events for ‘IAMWARFACE’ I decided to support them at a booking for the ‘Hope &
Anchor’ ‘IAMWARFACE’ are an awesome band and I was surprised getting acts like ‘The Rude
Awakening’ & ‘Nature of Wires’ to join us.
It truly was a great line-up and the ‘Hope & Anchor’ is one of the ‘the’ venues to attend in London!
I wanted also for the other bands to meet each other and network.
Sadly, with around a week to go, ‘IAMWARFACE’ had to cancel. It was a bit of a shock, but staying
cool and taking advice, I asked a handful of bands and artists if they could help.
What a massive surprise and shock when Ulrich Schnauss had time and committed.
The night happened and is behind us now, but we all had massive fun and
all the music was recorded.
I think you’ll strongly detect the mood, the ambience & the party
atmosphere that was captured on the night by artists that create a
nice spectrum of the genre of Electronic Music.” – 1i2c (August, 2019)
