After a lot of planning ‘Copperdollar, The Back Of Beyond’ is finally here…. It’s a fantastic 15 track digipack CD and download compilation album put together in collaboration with long-time friends Copperdollar, the award-winning performance company.
Copperdollar are known for their cutting-edge and mixed-media immersive theatre productions inspired by Mexico’s Day Of The Dead and we’ve watched them grow over the years to become a justly popular and surreal fixture at numerous UK music festivals. They rightly won the audience-voted Favourite Event at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2012 and continue to attract a dedicated cult following from everyone lucky enough to have stumbled across their after-hours tent in the eponymous Back Of Beyond.
Difficult to describe, but impossible to forget.
The CD features some obscure but dance-ably infectious music from their live shows. It is compiled with care by their resident DJ, Marc Stylus. Much like the theatre company themselves, the music takes elements of traditional latin and hispanic music and places them firmly in a 21st century context. The overall effect is exotic but with a modern twist; The listener carried into a hypnotic world of transcendent beats, basslines and the irresistable vitality that, ironically, only a celebration of the afterlife could bring…
ABOUT COPPERDOLLAR: Originally commissioned by Glastonbury Festival (after playing a key role in creating the notorious Lost Vagueness which is where our paths first crossed), Copperdollar have since performed at Brighton Fringe, The National Theatre, Bestival, Boomtown and many more. The release of this compilation marks a new milestone in the history of the Company and showcases the unique musical heritage at the heart of their performances.
