black midi performing The Beatles
Curated by Slauson Malone 1
When listening to Britain’s cacophonous black midi, not many would be reminded of the world’s most agreeable band of all time. In fact, apart from sharing a homeland, the two groups seem to have little in common. Thankfully, Le Guess Who? curator Slauson Malone 1 has enough imagination to disagree. Looking closely, one can see why. Beneath Geordie Greep, Cameron Picton, and Morgan Simpson’s tempestuous math rock lies a precious pop sensibility not too dissimilar from what can be heard on Lennon-McCartney records. Thus, a never-before-seen performance comes to life -as well as the chance to rediscover both bands.
