Big Block 454 is a semi-amorphous post-modern / situationist neo-dada cross-platform compositional construct from Manchester, England (featuring people from Liverpool, Leeds and Lincolnshire).
Over the years, Big Block 454 have unleashed a series of albums and multi-media happenings upon an unsuspecting public, combining influences such as Faust, Can, Brian Eno, The Residents, the Bonzo Dog Band, King Crimson and the BBC Radiophonics Workshop - surrealism meets Krautrock meets downright Northern stupidity. We play whatever we like, alright?
Big Block 454 have worked on multi-media projects with famed dada artist Russell Mills, and have been championed by such people as the BBC’s Stuart Maconie and Sunday Times writer/comedian Stewart Lee.
Big Block 454 have guested on Stuart Maconie’s BBC 6 Music radio show The Freak Zone.
