Minny Pops UK Tour 2012
19-23 January 2012
Incendiary Magazine and Louder Than War present:
Minny Pops Standstill To Motino Tour 2012
Playing live in 2012 for the first time in 30 years, Dutch electro pioneers and Factory Records artists Minny Pops took their name from the primitive Korg drum machine that propelled their stark, compelling post-punk rhythms. Their association with Factory saw them tour with Joy Division and New Order, work with producer Martin Hannett, and become the first Dutch group to record a Peel session, all in a touring lifespan of just three years. These long-rumoured reformation gigs, presented by Incendiary Magazine, will be accompanied by the January release of Standstill to Motion (LTM), a live CD/DVD package documenting 1981 performances in Amsterdam and New York.
