TOMAGA (uk) plays 'Lucifer Rising'
In November 2017 Tomaga performed a new original score for Kenneth Anger’s iconic ‘Lucifer Rising’ film at Cafe Oto in London. This score is to be performed at the Stellar Swamp festival this spring. Tomaga were described by BBC Radio3 as ‘the best band in the UK’ after performing a session as part of The Great Escape Festival in Brighton in May 2017. In April 2017 Tomaga comprised part of the 8 person ensemble who performed the CAN Project (alongside original Can singer Malcolm Mooney, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine’s Deb Goodge and others) at the Barbican (a show that sold out 2000 tickets in 8 hours). They were also named by avant-garde luminary Thurston Moore as one of the 5 bands you should know about right now in a recent article for NME. Read interviews, reviews and previews here: Wire Magazine, The Quietus, Liberation, Vinyl Factory, Hartzine, The Drone, Noisey. Having been invited to tour with such musical luminaries as Wire, Deerhoof, Thurston Moore, FAUST, Lee Ranaldo and Silver Apples since their formation, TOMAGA are truly an act to discover on stage urgently, if you missed them at Stellar Swamp 2016.
