Sean O'Hagan and Friends: 'We Start Counting'

Sean O'Hagan, founding member of The High Llamas, pays homage to the lyrical side of Basil Kirchin's work with a specially convened ensemble including vocalist Jane Weaver and other friends, whose collective background embraces Stereolab, Sun Ra, Jarvis Cocker and more.

Inspiration comes from I Start Counting, a song composed by Kirchin for the 1969 film of the same name, and other works of his cinematic and psychedelic period.

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.

Please note that the cost of the ticket for We Start Counting includes The Abominable Dr Phibes film screening and live performance by Alexander Hawkins.

Part of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 programme.
