DJ Food supporting The The on forthcoming UK dates

It gives me great pleasure to announce that I’ve been asked by Matt Johnson to open for The The on selected UK dates for their comeback tour this year. Matt didn’t want a conventional band support in the slot but asked if I would prepare something cinematic and ambient, incorporating his music from the last four decades. Fortunately this is exactly the place my head’s been at over the last few years and the chance to do this with Matt’s back catalogue is the stuff of dreams. Expect an improvised ‘cineolascape’ to greet you on arrival for the gigs, different for each night.


I’ll be joining the band – who have video accompaniment from Vicki Bennett aka People Like Us and design by Kate Wilkins – on
May 27th – Leeds, LMUSU
June 5th – London, Royal Albert Hall
June 6th – London, Brixton Academy
June 7th – London, Troxy
Sept 3rd – Newcastle, Newcastle University
Sept 4th – Glasgow, Barrowlands
Sept 5th – Glasgow, Royal Concert Hall

Also just announced: the new band line up (see above photo by John Claridge), the long-awated biography by Neil Fraser release date and more screenings of The Inertia Variations documentary at the ICA.

  1. Kev,

    As a huge The The (and DJ Food) fan myself, I scored tickets to their Ford Theatre show in Hollywood. That being said, please consider dropping a The The mix on either Solid Steel or posting to your blog here at some point.


  2. So glad you got the gig Kev! I was saying to a friend of mine a week ago when he asked who was supporting that I didn’t know but I thought you’d do a brilliant job – this kind of thing is tailor made for you. Can’t believe I called it. So looking forward to next weekend – we met at Rough Trade (I was the one with the Soul Mining artwork). Really really looking forward to it!
