Finishing off proceedings will be a showcase of Hull-inspired sets from some of the city’s underground exports; cultural innovators who grew up in the city and the surrounding area in the post-COUM years and can just about recall a youth spent loitering on Queen’s Gardens and mainlining toxic green cocktails in Spiders. Heading up the bill will be Kiran Sande of Blackest Ever Black, an underground label that has been championing sonically dark mischief since 2010, and whose mix CD-Rs ID Mud and Dream Theory In Haltemprice have touched upon Hull in more than name alone. Also appearing will be Alex Wilson, who co-runs Public Information, a label that has released a fascinating survey of electronics from the last seven decades, and who will also be presenting a paper titled, ‘Thee Fabulous Mutations: Film and Video in Yorkshire after COUM’ as part of a separate Hull 2017 event.
They’ll be joined by The Quietus’ Sophie Coletta, who, after spending many teenage years staring longingly down the mouth of the Humber, fled and returned to Hull’s clutches multiple times in the 2000s.
