This man is all set to pioneer new directions in genre-mangling electronica. (Or he is Brutus Gold and riding his Love Train directly into Middlesbrough in early June – one of the two).

Teesside don Brutus Gold is so steeped in the 1970s that we have discovered, despite all our attempts to contact him via Twitter and email, you can only reach him by CB radio. He lives for the sounds of that yellow and brown decade and we’re not talking Bowie’s adventures in the avant-garde, The Sex Pistols’ almighty racket or Led Zeppelin’s interminable guitar solos. We’re talking disco with a capital D. I. S. C. O. And The Hub at Teesside University is all set to be transformed into some kind of glorious Funky Town when Brutus and his all-star cast lay down the funkiest of grooves in early June including the likes of Stayin’ Alive, Sex Machine and Boogie Wonderland. This event will be the full-on version on Brutus’ show, so shrinking wallflowers need not apply.

Brutus Gold’s Love Train, Saturday 3 June, Teesside University Student Union, 9pm-1am, £10/£12/£15. skiddle.com
