The Cassandra Complex + Zeitgeist Zero

March 16 @ 7:30 pm 11:00 pm

The Cassandra Complex are coming to the dark side of the Tyne – at the Black Bull in Gateshead as part of a select few UK dates. This is a rare chance to see one of the most influential dark alternative bands in such an intimate setting, and the only North East date on this tour.

Originating in the mid-eighties, The Cassandra Complex swiftly garnered attention for their distinct fusion of electronics, post-punk aesthetics, guitar-driven soundscapes, and the commanding vocals of Rodney Orpheus. Tracks such as “Moscow Idaho,” “One Millionth Happy Customer,” and “The War Against Sleep” catapulted them to fame across Europe. Extensive tours solidified their position as one of the foremost post-punk bands of their time.

Rodney Orpheus has also worked in the field of music technology helping to create and promote much of the tech that musicians around the world use today, particularly VST (Virtual Studio Technology) which revolutionized the music industry. He has worked with artists as diverse as Kevin Godley (10cc, Godley & Creme), Sinead O’Connor, Sisters of Mercy, Die Krupps, and Future Sound of London.

Over the years, the band’s sound has included elements of EBM, industrial, goth rock, new wave and synthpop, and the band’s sound has been described as a blend of Joy Division, the Ramones and Kraftwerk
