As first reported in Prog 29, Knifeworld, The Fierce & The Dead and Trojan Horse have finalised their dates for their Prog-sponsored ‘Stabbing A Dead Horse’ tour of the UK in late October and early November. On each date a local support will be added, god have mercy on them.

October 28 – Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff support tbc

If you’re wondering what to all the hoo-ha is about – and hoo-ha there is – the bands themselves say: “Expect gnarled Northern experimentalism from Manchester four piece Trojan Horse. Acoustic loop wizard Matt Stevens ‘gone electric’ delivers angular and epic swathes of post- riffery with The Fierce & The Dead while eight-piece Knifeworld, fronted by Cardiacs and Guapo guitarist Kavus Torabi and including members of Chrome Hoof, deliver dense, soaring, kaleidoscopic prog.”
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. And, in fact, we didn’t. We just nicked it off their press release.
Meanwhile Knifeworld sidekick and little-known snooker dabbler Steve Davis has been busy promoting the tour with this Wunnerful Radio 1-esque audio sting.
