Purple Revolver hero Shit Robot is unleashing a live and audio visual show – hot on the heels of his successful debut album From The Cradle To The Rave.

The very first live performance of The Shit Robot Show takes place at London’s Fabric on March, 4.

The live – AV show features Shit Robot performing inside a bespoke screen, which will feature custom-designed visuals to accompany a selection of re-worked tracks from the Dubliner’s back catalogue.

After his UK debut, The Shit Robot Show will head to the US, with three SXSW shows, alongside further US dates, including two spots opening for LCD Soundsystem at Terminal 5.

Alongside these upcoming dates is the release of a super-limited 12” on DFA Records. It’s a glorious double-header.

First up is Michael Mayer’s incredibly creative reworking of Tuff Enuff. Less muscular than Lambkin’s original, the remix softens things up by placing supple keys under the hardened exterior. The climax is an otherworldly listening experience that literally builds to take off.

On the flip, John Talabot’s remix of Take Em Up starts like a laidback house party that builds just enough energy when it’s relocated under disco lights.

From The Cradle To The Rave, is out now on DFA/CO-OP.

04/03 – Fabric, London
17/03 – 508 (Live Stage) SXSW, Austin
