THE POP GROUP x DISCHARGE
TPG x Discharge: punk mystery solved. Officially revealed by Dangerous Minds.
'The quadrisected, photocopied face in the Discharge logo belongs to the great singer Mark Stewart.'
A special 'Noise Set' performance on Friday 6th July at Lars Rock Fest 2018.
“A multi-layered visual and total physical freakshow created about an exploration of otherland, non heritage and the notion of ‘foreign-ness’ / Total Noise in the current global scenario of division and intolerance, people living on opposite sides of the world but tied unconditionally to each other by their deep friendship and common ancestors, trying to unearth what connects us despite our differences”
Delighted to announce we'll be playing live at Summer Student Festival (Je t'aime) 2018 in Padua, Italy on Friday June 1st alongside the likes of Lust For Youth, MYSS KETA & The Master Musicians of Jajouka
Released 38 years ago today (21st March 1980)
'For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder'
Thirty eight years since the release of our second single 'We Are All Prostitutes'.
Originally released 9th November 1979 on Rough Trade Records.
Produced by TPG & Dennis Bovell.
Nick Cave: "It had everything that I thought rock and roll should have. It was violent, paranoid music for a violent, paranoid time."
Mark Fisher: "Scouring, seesawing, seasick funk, a pied piper’s exit from dominant reality, fired by a fissile compound of millenarian terror and militant jubilation."
Our debut single & our debut record is now available digitally on Bandcamp
‘I just developed my own individual voice. It’s no better than anybody else. It’s just me and you can hear when I’m playing it. The conceptual stuff I got from John Cage was enormous. That really was the thing that allowed me to ask something like, “What’s wrong with hitting the guitar with a bottle?” All noise can be created into music if it’s arranged in whatever way you feel possible.’
