Houdini's Picnic are back from the celestial void to see out 2010 with a glass of champagne and Transmission 9! This time the duo explore a sonisphere of rare early eighties disco, obscure 1930s opera and also take their scissors out to take wonderous snippets from films.

Houdini's Picnic at the Standon Calling Festival 2010


We have received word that we are to transmit LIVE at the Standon Calling Festival on Sunday 8th of August. The transmission will take place by the swimming pool at the festival and we are in the process of constructing a very special water themed set list. Punters can also expect an extra special visitation by our friends at French Kiss who will be providing a touch of glamour and mystery to the proceedings.

Everybody in the pool!
