Songs for the End of the World

7 Feb 2017

Musician and theatre maker Dom Coyote and his hi-octane multi-instrumentalist band The Bloodmoneys obliterate the line between epic theatre and raucous gig.Listen to the full album of the show on BandCamp

Inspired by Philip K Dick's post-apocalyptic novel Dr. Bloodmoney and David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust, Songs for the End of the World is a show like no other.

Welcome to New Albion, a near-future dystopia of suffering and exploitation. While some predict armageddon, many are simply preparing for the end.

When the apocalypse does arrive, astronaut Jim Walters is left suspended in orbit on his way to Mars, broadcasting his songs for the end of the world back to a silent Earth.

Dom Coyote is an associate artist of Kneehigh Theatre and his high octane, multi-instrumentalist band, the Bloodmoneys, have toured and recorded with artists including Beth Orton, Scissor Sisters, Gary Newman, Goldfrapp, Beth Gibbons, and Tinie Tempah.
