Part of Robert Smith’s Meltdown

Be there as Loop reunites after many years to play their hypnotic space rock in this show for Meltdown, with support from Planning for Burial.

Discordant, elusive, and utterly hypnotic, Loop conjured a dark, trance-like sound that contrasted sharply with the prevailing British pop music trends of the time.

Inspired by the sound of artists like The Stooges and Can, they resurrected the concept of space rock for a new era, creating droning soundscapes of bleak beauty and harsh dissonance.

Loop were formed in London in 1986 by vocalist and guitarist Robert Hampson, who at the time of the group's inception claimed to know only four chords. The band then issued their 1987 full-length debut, Heaven's End, winning acclaim for its densely distorted sound.
