First DJ set since 2017! First UK DJ set since 2016! First Todmorden DJ set since 2015!
The Golden Lion Todmorden is pleased to be hosting Alex Rex with special guests Victor Herroro and Peat.
Alex Rex is the solo project of the relentless Alex Neilson, collaborator of such artists as Shirley Collins, Bonnie Prince Billy, Current 93 and of course Trembling Bells. His current album paradise is his 4th solo record to date, and will be performed with his longtime fellow troubadour Rory Haye (electric guitar, vocals).
Uncut – 7/10
Mojo – 3*
Folk Radio – ‘one of the most distinctive and continuously excellent songwriters around’
Beats Per Minute – ‘Neilson invites you into his playful world, seemingly both collapsing into itself and expanding outward, and you feel better for having received the invitation.’
Victor Herrero was introduced to music in his childhood while living in the famous monastery Franco erected in a mountain valley west of Madrid (El Valle de los Caídos). During the last couple years Victor has been involved in many different projects and journeys, travelling, recording or playing with artists like Michael Gira, Keiji Haino, Luzmila Carpio, Ed Askew, Alasdair Roberts, Eric Chenaux, Tomi Simatupang, Alex Neilson, Paz Lenchantin, Gyda Valtysdottir, Abdellah el , Michael Zerang, Nat Baldwin, Lorena Álvarez, Shahzad Ismaily, etc.
