In true Modular fashion, the Australian label have continued their reign of glory, with rumours spreading the label have secured Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke to headline their intimate event, ‘A Very Modular Affair’. For those who are unfamiliar, Modular rarely secure artists to peform for them, yet when they do they don’t hold back. After convincing dance legends Daft Punk to play their 10th Birthday Party, and then a few years later convincing The Cure to attend their 2011 instalment of Vivid Live festival, it’s become clear that for a label, Modular have pulling power like no other.
So when they posted a flyer to their shindig late this afternoon telling fans that the event would feature “with a super secret international guest,” many began to wonder. Unless Steve Pav and Goodgod have managed to secure the world premier of Elton John dropping the bass or Chris Martin spinning his tunes, all signs point to Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.
If we’re correct Yorke will finish his second headline show with Radiohead at Sydney’s Entertainment Centre and swing by Goodgod to entice the crowd in the most appropriate setting.
Accompanying this international guest (ahem! Yorke) will be The Preset’s Kim, Canyons, Softwar, SlowBlow, MOVEMENT, Ariane and R+R. The event will only set you back $15, with gates opening at 10pm, with artists playing throughout the night until the arrival of His Majesty.
They’ve scored: Yorke, Daft Punk, The Cure and Nirvana, I’m beginning to question when Modular will establish its touring company, because that would result in some fine displays of musical talent.
