Gunther Prague at The Box

The double header of Gunther Prague's Wax Mask album launch and Fütumche's Gazing into Misery EP was easily our biggest show to date. On the hottest day of the year we took an empty concrete and wood shell and turned it into a very special one-off gig venue.

We were very pleased when Native Magazine named it as their favourite gig of 2017 so far. The full review is here.

As well as a full scale PA, we also dropped two large video screens into the venue so that we could show visuals and live footage with live vision mixing from our long-time collaborator Antony Weir who somehow managed to find time to take stills as well.

Fütumche! announced the arrival of their release with a powerful set, most of which will end up on their forthcoming album. They are still Creature Lab's favourite new band and will be for some time.

Television Screens opened the show with their noisy art-pop and Cold War era visuals. Beautiful.

We will be returning to The Box. There's nothing that we enjoy more than taking an empty space and turning it into a gig venue for the night, and this one was really special.

Gunther Prague set from the night was filmed and recorded in multi-track audio, so expect to see and hear more of that soon.
