This Is Not This Heat @ New Music Dublin
New Music Dublin is proud to present THIS IS NOT THIS HEAT, featuring Charles Hayward and Charles Bullen, the two surviving members of legendary art rock band This Heat. Performing with Daniel O’Sullivan from Grumbling Fur, plus Merlin Nova, Frank Byng, Alex Ward and James Sedwards, the Guardian described their show at Cafe Oto in London as a “rousing reunion from an unstoppable force”. Not to be missed!
“It does feel like we’ve been witness to something special. A fine body of work has been brought to life with energy and vitality that seems improbable nearly 40 years after the fact” The Wire
“This doesn’t feel like nostalgia but a new beginning” The Guardian
Having turned post-punk upside down in the late seventies and exactly 40 years to the day of their first gig in 1976, the two surviving members (Bullen and Hayward) of the experimental rock band This Heat came together with a large group of collaborators to play under the project title of THIS IS NOT THIS HEAT. In a matter of hours, the consensus was unanimous that all present had been witness to something of cultural significance. Flooded with invitations from around the world, 2017 saw THIS IS NOT THIS HEAT take to the road.
