Be at album recording

THE Olympic Lifts will be recording a live album on Friday, May 27.

Animal Disco are proud to announce that they have teamed up with Olympic Lifts to officially record their new album in Auntie Annies.

Tickets for this unique experience are available from Auntie Annies Bar and priced £5.

After some fabled arguments with computers, the latest turn in the story sees Olympic Lifts abandoning technology in favour of more a traditional approach.

Enlisting for the first time live drums and horns, their upcoming album sounds more like The Stooges crashing a 70s James Brown funk revue. And in a bold move they have decided to capture their fabled stage experience and release the album as a live recording.

It’s been said that “necessity is the mother of invention”, “time flies when you’re having fun” and that “great art can be more accident than design”. If these idioms are to believed then Olympic Lifts are the greatest rock’n’roll party of the 21st century.

Beginning life as a cut-and- paste hip-hop experiment, O.L. has developed through various forms, taking on board the entire history of rock from AC/DC to Gorillaz, and from Krautrock to Electro.

Animal Disco takes place every Friday night in Auntie Annies. Now a core night on the Belfast scene it has seen raucous nights from the likes of And So I Watch You From Afar, Not Squares, Panama Kings, LaFaro and Bats. Other upcoming shows include Enemies, Le Galaxie and Talons.
