An acidic live return from the analogue techno duo

Gerardo Delgado and Quinn Whalley are two men ahead of their time. Seeing the vinyl resurgence before anyone else, without much in the way of publicity or interviews, they acquired such fame that their records barely even seemed to touch record store shelves. As Paranoid London, they went from the studio to the booth of the best underground clubs and, from there, to big stages, serving as opening acts for stalwarts such as The Chemical Brothers or Soulwax. Their live show draws from influences as apparently disparate as Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New York punk and New Wave. After a decade-long hiatus, they returned to the decks shortly before the pandemic, and now in 2022, they’ve reappeared with a new live set developed during lockdown. Featuring vocals from Mutado Pintado (vocalist of London weirdo post-punk band Warmduscher), queer underground house and techno mainstay Josh Caffe and the visual work of Bob Jaroc (a regular collaborator of Fatboy Slim's).
