and MICHELANGELO RUSSO
BELLA UNION, Trades Hall, Cnr Victoria & Lygon Streets, Carlton
Hugo Race, legendary former Bad Seed and now an international producer with projects like Dirtmusic and Fatalists, returns from an intense European solo headline tour to set forth across Australia in support of his latest Hugo Race Fatalists EP “Orphans”. The seven city tour includes Melbourne at Bella Union with Michelangelo Russo from Hugo’s True Spirit Band and Caroline No featuring Caroline Kennedy-McCracken and Ian Wadley.
Hugo Race has the kind of presence that draws your eyes towards him wherever he stands in a room. This show is an immersive experience… - Bryget Christfield, The Music Australia, September 2013
Driven, passionate and charismatic, Hugo Race delivers a unique take on experimental blues, folk and dark-edge. Drawing on material from his albums with Fatalists and True Spirit, Race creates ground-breaking, intense sonic soundscapes that merge folk, experimentalism, electronica and rock – compelling and hypnotic listening.
The intense presence of Hugo Race… I understand now why so many compare him to Mark Lanegan, the live presence is undeniable. Inescapable. - Angus Evans, Mountainpass.com.au, September 2013
The new EP, Orphans, (on Rough Velvet Records), is the third release from Hugo's Fatalists project, following last year’s We Never Had Control and Fatalists in 2011 and is available on iTunes now:
CD copies of Orphans are also available at the concert.
The title track music video features Hugo and Alannah Hill in the dreamy landscapes of Tasmania
