The Notwist

Part of Grace Jones' Meltdown

German band The Notwist bring their experimental indie rock to Robert Smith’s Meltdown, with support from Leeds three-piece Drahla.

Siblings Markus and Micha Acher and friend Martin Messerschmidt started as a punk rock band in 1989.

They later moved first to melodic post-hardcore, and then to abstract electronics when Martin Gretschmann joined them in 1997.

Now, the Bavarian band is best known for the innovative combination of electronic and indie rock showcased in their masterpiece Neon Golden and in their most recent release, 2016’s live album Superheroes, Ghostvillains + Stuff.

The live album also features Andi Haberl, Max Punktezahl, Karl Ivar Refseth, and Cico Beck.
