At 9.30am on Saturday December 4, the five members of Oneida, their Secret Project Robot visuals crew, stage manager Kyle Hepp and Jagjaguwar’s UK publicist/merch monkey entered the Crazy Horse venue at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead to set up the second Oneida Presents The Ocropolis at All Tomorrow’s Parties.
The first took place in September 2009 at theNew York ATPcurated by The Flaming Lips; this time the O’s gracious hosts were Godspeed You! Black Emperor. For a full explanation, please see the festival’sofficial billing andprogramme notes. In shorthand: that’s a continuous 10 hour jam, folks! Aided by assorted musical guests, SPR’s killer light show and gear borrowed off Portishead (thank youMr Barrowand the staff of ATP).
The following ‘tweetline’ (all timings approximate) describes the action, compiled from various twitter updates. All that and video of the performance after the jump!
