With Dean Honer (All Seeing I) and Adrian Flanagan (Chanteuse and the Crippled Claw), plus support: Paper Dollhouse & Emma Tricca

An exclusive performance somewhere in Preston of their ‘14 chapter sound poem’ 1612 Underture, which retells the tragic tale of the Pendle Witches who were executed in Lancashire, on 20 August 1612.

Electronics enthusiasts from Sheffield, the The Eccentronic Research Council feature Adrian Flanagan, Dean Honer and Maxine Peake.

1612 Underture is a concept album based on historical events but reflects the present social climate. Looking through contemporary eyes the story contrasts fictional with factional occurrences around various Pendle Witches.

‘Exactly 400 years since the trials and execution of the 12 women now known as The Pendle Witches, a purpose assembled collective of artists, sound designers, experimental pop performers, writers, poets (and one actress) pay homage to the legendary Lancastrian sisterhood.’

You may have seen Maxine Peake on television in Channel 4’s Shameless, BBC comedy Dinnerladies, and, most recently, barrister Martha Costello QC in BBC legal drama Silk.
