The cat is out of the bag. We are thrilled to announce that A Love from Outer Space will be joining Peggy Gou at the Oxford Art Factory! To top it all off, the legendary duo will be throwing it down all night long in the gallery!
A residency at Stoke Newington’s The Waiting Room in 2010 was just the beginning for A Love from Outer Space. A shared loved of many things mid tempo, their sound draws influence from driving disco baselines, ambient kosmische soundscapes, experimental house and everything in-between. From this journey of sound, grew the beginnings of A Love From Outer Space (ALFOS) club night, which has found its new home at The Art School.
What started as a shared love of music and experimental curiosities has mutated into a worldwide phenomenon and gone on to influence a whole new wave of producers and DJs. Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston have taken their ‘oasis of slowness’ outside the club on multiple tours across the UK, numerous festival slots such as Electric Elephant and more recently saw them closing out Andrew Weatherall’s own festival ‘Convenanza’.
A Love From Outer Space isn’t an exercise in rose-tinted retrospection or self-applauding egotism. This is a clear stretching of selection which journeys further, towards the peripheries, giving new life to old, leftfield eccentricities and airing the young and recent in proximity, with finely judged style.
