One of the truly seminal artists in the Chicago, Illinois sound, and cult figures of mid-western indie-rock and early emo, Tim Kinsella, travels to the UK with his band Joan of Arc in November.
Chicago's experimental rock troupe Joan Of Arc have announced a series of UK gigs - some more straight-forward rock shows, showcasing material from across their varied back catalogue, and others based around their most recent album, Testimonium Songs:
Testimonium Songs collects the song cycle composed by Joan of Arc (Tim Kinsella, Bobby Burg, and Theo Katsaounis) to be performed live in Testimonium, a work of performance by well-respected experimental theater ensemble Every House Has a Door.
Testimonium responds -- both in substance and in style - to Charles Reznikoff's monumental work Testimony, a translation into poetry of courtroom transcripts of witness and victim testimonies in criminal cases and cases of workplace negligence, in the US, spanning the years 1885 to 1915.
Performances of Testimonium incorporate modern dance, theater, and original songs written and played by Joan of Arc.
