Founding member of The High Llamas, Sean O’Hagan, pays homage to the lyrical side of Basil Kirchin’s work with a specially convened ensemble, playing newly-commissioned music that takes its inspiration from I Start Counting, a song composed by Kirchin for the 1969 film of the same name.

O’Hagan’s ensemble includes vocalist Jane Weaver as well as other friends, whose collective background embraces Stereolab, Sun Ra, Jarvis Cocker and more.

Support comes from Hull’s own Liam van Rijn, also known as Revenu, who premieres a set of live and electronic music creating a seamless blend of Kirchin’s sounds with his own.

Ticket price includes a free ticket to The Abominable Dr Phibes film screening with live organ accompaniment, in Hull City Hall immediately after this gig.
