Club Integral – home to the uncategorisable
We are an autonomous music collective promoting live music and performance events around London, and releasing recordings in various formats through our label Divine Records. Events are at The Others in Stoke Newington and at IKLECTIK – with occasional special events on other dates and at other venues. Club Integral Midlands Branch is our baby in the Midlands – with events taking place at The Edge in Birmingham.
Music by Orchestre Murphy, Kamura Obscura, Miners Of Banal, The Plain People Of England and others are available on CD, vinyl or as downloads for a modest price from Divine Agency.
“This adventurous music series continues…” Wire magazine, 2012
“The chaps behind the night (…) are Club Integral, a collective with proper pedigree ranging from Resonance FM to Wire magazine. Pushing experimental music from the more interesting but less celebrated side of the scene, they’re doing an amazing job spreading a message of sonic exploration and creativity by curating top events of music they believe in. We love it.” Awkward Movements record label, April 2013
“Possibly the most varied, entertaining and unpredictable regular live music night that London has to offer, I heartily recommend that you get yourselves down to Club Integral.”

“That, for me, is what Club Integral delivers: an exciting and eclectic mix of music for which there needs to be a space. And I think, after tonight, the Midlands have just found another one.” Lucy Mounfield, Birmingham Review
“An utterly amazing gig” Tallulah Jones
“Jaw dropping .. up there with seeing the Swans in the eighties” Simon Wade
“Another amazing night! Thanks to Club Integral, and all the artists, especially Vampilia. Really really special.” Kim Shankar
“Best night I’ve been to in a while. Excellent. Sound of the Sun after Gertrude was like brushing your teeth after a serious meal.” Marcel Stoetzler, Glassglue, commenting on Club Integral – 16th April 2010
