Doncaster Electronic Foundation’s 9th live show this time takes place at at The Leopard in Doncaster. We are utterly thrilled and delighted to have this line up of:

Naked Lunch​

Only one of the earliest dark electro/goth synth bands around and significant hand in the release of the legendary Some Bizarre record (Details here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Some_Bizzare_Album#Naked_Lunch_-_.22La_Femme.22 if you don’t already know).

Tony  Mayo provides a statuesque menace over a sci fi landscape of guitars, drums and synthesisers. Mixing elements of early new wave/experimental with occasional more modern ebm sensibilities.

A superb live act (and properly live with lots of people playing instruments on stage) that we’re honoured to have performing with us.

The Department​

A rocky Synthpop band with synthwave tendencies. Taking influences from The Human League, The Cure, The Smiths, Soft Cell, Depeche Mode, The The and New Order.

Their excellent debut album ‘Alpha’ has received considerable critical praise and they have been on numerous radio shows including BBC radio 6.

Their ethos: creating dramatic, instant, energetic electronic music with moving lyrics that explore life, love and existence.

Jan Doyle Band​

Doncaster’s own dramatic synthsters known for wild and chaotic live shows. Priding themselves on being difficult to define as they refuse to stay in one stylistic rut and say churn out song after song that sounds like Erasure or Depeche Mode. Sometimes subtle sometimes explosive, always exciting.



Again hailing from Doncaster, The Mangas take a very warped and twisted approach to music. Fracturing and splitting songs into a billion pieces then reassembling into something strange, dark and beautiful.

Impossible to define by any genre tag, they just have to be experienced to be appreciated.

Here are gushes of a truly warped, sinuous fusion of beats n bass, (bad) acid and psych-prog/electronica/sampladelia; the bones of Burroughs and Rhinehart ground up and snorted; these are songs, but not as we know them.


Running order of supports to be determined on the night.

Tickets available shortly
