On the 10th of October Squarepusher visits Budapest with his Shobaleader One named band to play at the CAFe.
The artist Tom Jenkins who is creating as Squarepusher is the cult electronic music producer of the mid 90's. Usually he is working alone, but in 2010 he founded the project band names Shobaleader One. After an album and a few concerts Tom Jenkins returned to the solitude of the studio and the band was forced to rest. However he was still interested in making music with others, its dynamism and its almost unlimited possibilities in creativity, so at the end of the last year he returned to the band. "Using the unusual shapes and solutions are the real challenge" - says Tom Jenkins, and this in the case of Shobaleader One means that they are playing such music live with a guitarist, keyboardist and drummer, that was thought to be possible only made by a computer.
The stage image of the production reflects the original concept of the band: the musicians cover their faces with masks, its impossible to see their faces at all and the nondescript black clothes are also intended to make the audience focus on the potential energy in the music and on accommodating the music and not on who the musicians are. Thus the identity of the fellow musicians is a mystery, but based on the current shots, the international press and music fans alike assume that the greatest names are forming the Shobaleader One.
