Festivals 2012: I'll Be Your Mirror


Share This Article:

SlayerAs the sun blazes outside (hopefully), darkness will be descending inside Alexandra Palace as metal-titans Slayer perform their classic metal album in its entirety at the second instalment of All Tomorrow’s Parties’ I’ll Be Your Mirror festival (IBYM).

Set inside the stunning interiors of Ally Pally, accompanying Slayer on the Friday is a medley of extreme noise-mongers in the form of Sleep, Melvins, and black metal heroes Wolves In The Throne Room. Critically acclaimed hip hip experimentalists Death Grips will also bring the noise to complete the first day.

Saturday is curated by ATP mainstay’s, post-rock legends Mogwai accompanied by grunge godfathers Mudhoney, reformed slow-core group Codiene, Dirty Three and noise-rockers Harvey Milk.

Sunday throws in a rock-coup, with a performance from a reformed The Make-Up. The Dischord records legends were easily one of the the most exciting

indie/post-rock groups of the 1990s, blending soul, garage rock and gospel into an

incomparable mix, and through their energetic and participatory shows quickly creating a reputation as an unmissable live act. Back after a hiatus, their set is one of the most exciting reformations of 2012.

This set forms part of a day headlined by rock legends The Afghan Whigs, garage-rock revivalists Thee Oh Sees, Yuck, indie pop group Tennis, and alt-folk duo Tall Firs.

Following last year’s debut outing for IBYM (featuring the likes of Portishead, PJ Harvey, Grinderman, Liars and Doom) ATP have pulled together another widely eclectic array of acts not to be missed.
