HENGE - Attention Earth! Album Tour

Attention Earth! This is Henge. We come in the name of rave. We bring you the gift of Cosmic Dross - a kind of music new to your world. We have news. Planet Earth is an experiment. Your species was sent codes from space, to help you love and dance. But your leaders grew scared. They hid the codes from you. Now your consciousness shrinks and they destroy your world with weapons of war. Ravelings of Earth, rebel! Absorb the mutated frequencies of Cosmic Dross. There are no Earth words to describe these sounds. But you will learn how to love and dance again. This is your future. Put down the weapons. Unite. And colonise space.

HENGE Are here to bring Love, Piece & Unity to our world and are renowned for their very experimental ways on achieving this!

The music in store is Cosmic Dross from the Agricular, Cosmos Redshift 7 which in English, is a mix of Funk, Electronic, Reggae & Ska so has something for everyone to enjoy.

If you have never seen a Frog playing drums or an Alien playing keyboard, this is your chance!

Pi and Hash Music can't wait to see this out of this world act. Hope you're there too
