Internationally acclaimed artist and musician Martin Creed visits Falmouth next week to headline a riotous night of punk, dance and pop music featuring some of Cornwall’s best-loved bands.

Groundwork Presents… celebrates the finale of Groundwork, a season of international art in Cornwall that opened in May.

The gig will take place on Sunday, September 30 at Falmouth Rugby Club, where previous music events have included Russian punk protesters Pussy Riot.

Martin Creed heads a line-up of some of Cornwall’s best loved bands: Shagrat, an all-girl, all-rocking, experimental rat jam band based in Penryn; Disco Rococo, a group of Redruth-based artists making their own blend of ‘sad-pop’; Splash Addict, St Ives artist Simon Bayliss and his collaborator Susie Green, performing melodic vocals over 90s dance bass lines; and Redruth’s finest Casio rappers Hedluv + Passman.

Martin Creed is an acclaimed British artist who famously won the Turner Prize in 2001 for Work No 227: The Lights Going On and Off, a work that operates exactly as its title describes, in an empty gallery.

He has always produced musical compositions as well as his artworks and approaches art making and music with humour, anxiety, and experimentation.

Creed launched his own label – Telephone Records – in 2011 to release his albums of ramshackle, catchy folk-pop.

He performs at music festivals across the UK and Europe.

The New York Times has described his music as "catchy, punk-folk-minimalist tunes… that use and abuse language brilliantly".
