Ned Collette And Wirewalker Announce UK + Berlin Shows May 2013

Ned Collette & Wirewalker come together for three rare full band shows in Berlin, London and Brighton this May. This is almost the entire Australian lineup of the band, taking advantage of the fact that Joe Talia (drums) and James Rushford (synths) will be touring their own duo project throughout Europe at this time. Joining them from Berlin will be Collette on electric guitar and vocals, and Sweden's Fredrik Kinbom on bass.

Ned Collette & Wirewalker's most recent album, '2', was released last year on Fire Records, garnering praise in such publications as Mojo, Time Out and The Wire. Collette & Talia are currently completing work on a new album and will follow these shows with a Wirewalker tour of Japan, where Talia has been living and performing club shows alongside Keiji Haino and Jim O'Rourke.

Since moving to Berlin from his native Melbourne three years ago, Ned Collette has made a name for him- self in the German metropolis as a musician of rare directness, sitting well apart from any of the city's par- ticularly fragmented scenes. Neither one of the endless army of living-room folksters, nor solely working in rock-band or experimental formats, he presents constantly evolving versions of his songs in many different musical contexts.

A well known and respected singer-songwriter in his own country and in underground circles worldwide, he was first invited to tour Europe by Joanna Newsom, and has since played alongside such acts as Kurt Vile, Bill Callahan, Deerhoof and Mogwai. Recently he has successfully shared stages with such seemingly dispa- rate Fire label-mates as Howe Gelb and Opossum.

THURSDAY MAY 16 - ANTJE OKLESUND, BERLIN
THURSDAY MAY 23 - 12 BAR, LONDON
FRIDAY MAY 24 - LATEST MUSIC BAR, BRIGHTON
