CARGO :: PITCH BLACK :: 24/07/08

Since their inaugural show at The Gathering back in 1997, Pitch Black have blazed a trail of warped woofers and twisted tweeters worldwide. Their original dark, dubby, almost techno, sound has evolved to incorporate breakbeats and down beats and has found them fans across the globe, especially in America and Japan.

They make a welcome return to London for a one off show this summer, in between supporting the Easy Dub All Stars in Croatia and representing NZ at an international film festival in Poland. Supporting them on the night is the equally unclassifiable Tom Cosm and DJ Horace.
