This group are currently playing a small number live shows in which they perform the highly influential music of Neu!
In Between Days is curated by AMOS, and runs from 6th - 9th December 2010 at Butlins Minehead. If you are planning to come to both December ATP weekends, or wish to stay on after weekend 1 (or come early to weekend 2!) or indeed if you're not coming to our Xmas festivals at all we have limited availability for people to stay on site during the week in between. During the event the small Crazy Horse venue will be open and we’ll be putting on entertainment including bands and djs.
The line-up so far looks like this:
CARIBOU / WOODEN SHJIPS / MOON DUO / FOUR TET / WHITE HILLS / CAVE / EMERALDS / HALLOGALLO 2010 (MICHAEL ROTHER & FRIENDS PRESENT NEU! MUSIC)
With more bands, DJs and other activities to be announced. In Between Days will cost £100 per person for the four nights, and is available as 4 berth self-catering. If you only have 2 people in your party who wish to stay, we can place you in a share-an-apartment scheme for the 4 days with another 2 people.
To book for In Between Days email us at email@example.com with IN BETWEEN DAYS in the subject line and we will give you full information; payments can be made using Paypal or Cheque.

2. Modest Mouse + Yuck to play London Troxy
After playing a number of fantastic sold out shows for us last December, Modest Mouse will return to London this September to play the Troxy. We've just confirmed the great Yuck will support on this show which takes place on the 8th September. Tickets are on sale now, click here to buy!
3. The Pop Group reform! Original line-up to play London shows
The Pop Group return after nearly thirty years to play a small amount of club dates to "blow the dust off the old songs and pick up where we left off.” These initial dates serve as a brief introduction to a new generation of the band's signature caustic Molotov dub funk that manifested itself into only two albums that went on to sporn a whole genre.
Formed in Bristol in 1978, The Pop Group were for many the first and the last après punk band. After two seminal albums ‘Y’ and ‘For How Much Longer Must We Tolerate Mass Murder’ the group split in 1981. "There was a lot left undone,....we were so young and volatile....Let's face it, things are probably even MORE fucked now than they were in the early 80's.....and WE are even more fucked off!"
The 2010 line-up features all original members, Mark Stewart (vocals), Gareth Sager (Guitar, Keys, Sax), Bruce Smith (Drums), Dan Catsis (Bass). ATP are proud to present The Pop Group over two nights at The Garage, London - Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September. Tickets are on sale now, click here to buy!
4. ATP New York - NYC Altar show, Philadelphia bus on sale!
Fans of Sunn O))) and Boris will be pleased to know that on the 7th September we are presenting a New York City show in which the bands will perform their collaboration Altar live for the first time in NYC, with support from BXI (Boris and Ian Astbury in their first US performance) and Jesse Sykes And The Sweet Hereafter. The groups are also of course performing Altar at the ATP New York 2010 festival this September 3rd-5th at the request of guest curator Jim Jarmusch. Tickets for the show at Brooklyn Masonic Temple are on sale now via our website.
