James Stinson Tribute Events, RubaDub Archive and more

There are now 5 confirmed James Stinson/Drexciya tribute nights. There is one in  London on 2nd Sept, Manchester on 2nd Sept, Rome on 2nd Sept, on 4th Sept an online radio show, Teknology based in Detroit, one in Birmingham on 7th and one in Dublin on 8th Sept. I've edited together a video that might be useful to project as visuals in case anyone wants to use it. This year will be his 15th anniversary and fans have taken it on themselves to do something to mark this. I hope they all go well and if you can't get to go to one maybe just listen or share some of his music instead.

There is a new Dopplereffekt live show announced for 28th October in Manchester, England.

Das Heise Experiment 2 - The Prequel by The Exaltics has shipped. Heinrich Mueller, under his Rudolf Klorzeiger alias, collaborated on one of the tracks. The picture disc is limited to 500 copies and is sold out on Bandcamp but in early September copies will also be availble in stores. You can still order the digital album and listen to samples at this link.

The Ocean After Nature touring art exhibition, which features artefacts of Drexciya alongside work by The Otolith Group and many more reaches Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in early September. On 6th September at 5pm there will be a talk by its curator Alaina Claire Feldman followed by its opening reception. The show runs until 7th January 2018. 

I've been kindly sent some images from the RubaDub/Club 69 archives. The first image is a very rare poster from Underground Resistance's Interstellar Fugitives tour, which only touched down in Paisley and London in November 1998. The second image, an adapted piece of Drexciya insert artwork, served as the ticket for the night. I don't think they have been shared online before. The poster was designed by Mad Mike himself.

Also originating from the same archives, on an Instagram account of Mark from RubaDub, I've previously shared this Drexciya Q&A from Energy Flash zine from 1996 on DRL before, but this is the first time I've seen the original pages.
