Event description

Description

That first Big Break is something most new artists long for. If and when it happens, a change in writing style can sometimes follow. At Mutant Movement Unbroken, we celebrate the body of work from NEW WAVE acts written and/or recorded before they broke through to the mainstream and those who never did.

Mike Wiand opened the legendary Warehouse Club Feb ’79 and in doing so, put Leeds on the map, just as Billy’s & The Blitz in London and The Rum Runner did for Birmingham. I hope to pay homage to Mike and all others involved in playing music by many of the acts he booked and played at the Warehouse, giving many their first break.

Every night at the warehouse had a big turn out with different DJs playing their own style including the Big Mutant Disco, started by Marc Almond followed by Marten SpudSpud Read, with David Ball playing drum machine live to Marten’s DJing. Other nights were hosted by the likes of Stevo Pearce, Brian Moss of Vicious Pink Phenomena, Anni Hogan & Kris Neate (Soft Cell artwork designer). Regular guest DJs also appeared with Steve Strange & Rusty A Egan making the trip up North.

Come & join us relive the spirit of those nights with singles that didn’t make the Top 30 on their first release as well as b-sides & album tracks by artists before they broke into the singles chart and those who never charted.
