Bishop brothers, Chris Corsano and Michael Flower form new quartet

Thirty Three Thirty Three present the debut performance of Clandestine Quartet this September with support from Senyawa

Thirty Three Thirty Three will host the premiere performance from Clandestine Quartet on 15 September. The newly formed group includes Alan and Sir Richard Bishop of Sun City Girls – who disbanded in 2007 following the death of drummer Charles Gocher and who now perform as Alvarius B and Rangda respectively – with Chris Corsano and Vibracathedral Orchestra's Mick Flower.

“Together, they’re hiding away for a week in a studio to write a completely new set of material. And what will it sound like? Who knows,” say the promoters. “Perhaps the Bishops have found kindred spirits in the form of Flower-Corsano. Or perhaps they’ve just found two new figures to spar with.”

The evening will also have a performance from Jogjakarta duo Senyawa (Rully Shabara & Wukir Suryadi).

The event will take place at St John at Hackney church on 15 September, 8pm. It will be streamed by Boiler Room. Tickets are available now.
