1,000,000,000,000 O’Clock (pronounced ‘A Bilyon Oh Clok) is a dystopian noise/rap collective based in Leicester, UK’s West Side. Its essence is in quantum state, being both/either a lighthearted apocalyptic experiment born from a conversation on a red astroturf carpet; or/& backpack based electro-catharsis flying upwards from madness and heartbreak like a clichéd noise phoenix that just got out of jail. Sounds like: The Best Party You’ve Ever Been To. In a future gone very wrong.

Tony LeTigre is a spoken word poet in Leicester. He has been performing words that rhyme through a microphone for anyone who will listen for the last 3 years, after exploring alternative avenues to the live hip-hop and rap performances he had previously been known for. Heralded as “charismatic, cheeky and attention grabbing”, Tony artfully discusses subjects that are humorously identifiable, and articulates observations of everyday social convention to choruses of laughter. Tony LeTigre’s performances are described as “all smooth rhythm, charm and extended metaphors”, and is one cool cat you’re not going to want to miss!
