In celebration of the very special brand new release 'Pattern Recognition Remix EP' on Friday 10th March, 2023 via Bytes, GLOK will be joining Melting Vinyl for this very special headline show. Andy Bell of pioneering shoegazers RIDE is parking his Space Station in low Earth orbit to take the GLOK-mobile for a spin to a venue near you this October. GLOKtober offers a rare chance to see Andy performing live as his electronic alter ego, where he brilliantly weaves together throbbing dubbed-out acid, levitational psychedelia, Balearic, ambient, techno, Kosmische, shoegaze, art-rock and Compass Point-style post punk, with his virtuoso guitar playing and musicianship to the fore. GLOK as a live entity was born in 2022 with a mindblowing session recorded for Electronic Sound magazine, followed by two festival appearances at the Optimo/Ransom Note shindig Watching Trees and Convenanza, the gathering of the acid house tribes in France started by the late Andrew Weatherall. All of these performances featured visuals by Innerstrings, who will also be joining Andy for the UK tour. Andy has reworked tracks from his acclaimed albums Dissident and Pattern Recognition, alongside unreleased tracks, with a similar improvised, one-man band approach to when playing under the Andy Bell Space Station name, but this time with an emphasis on the dancefloor. This is an 18+ event .
