MONK FEST: Luxury Mollusc To Play Monk Fest 2024

We are thrilled to announce that Luxury Mollusc will be joining us at this years Monk Fest.

Luxury Mollusc performs a unique mix of harrowing harsh noise and occult industrial ambience. Performances have a strong tactile underpinning with little regard for audience expectations. Instrumentation generally consists of scrap metal, bones, prepared tape cassettes and whatever detritus may be found on location. Performances have been described as "hellish" and he has been referred to as "Ireland's greatest living noise artist". 

Our first release outside of my own Ruairi O'Baoighill project (a project which only came about after someone gave me a Luxury Mollusc CD they got at a noise show in Galway) was a split between Gourd and Luxury Mollusc, and in 2018 we were honoured to put out his album Osseous Labyrinth Vestibule

Active since 2009 Luxury mollusc has been a constant presence on the outside of the Irish underground; performing everywhere from squats to galleries, empty factories to abandoned swimming pools. Further afield Luxury Mollusc has toured all throughout Europe including Poland, Austria, the Netherlands, Slovenia and the UK.

Monk Fest 2024 will take place on July 6th. Tickets are available here. Monk Fest is in aid of Temple St. Children’s Hospital.
