This activity is completed or marked as expired


Thoughtful and strange electronic songs, theatrically presented with John's whimsical energy, ingenious costumes and specially-made videos.

"The closest thing to a living cartoon character. Makes music like no-one else in this dimension." - Professor Elemental

"Blurring the lines between music and artistic performance, John's use of visuals and costumes [pushes] the set to another level... An incredible performer, and certainly unique." - Paper Champion

"Callaghan [inhabits] a strange zone... Comfortable in the idm scene, making melodic electronica, yet almost always vocally-based, with eccentric lyrics and usually silly and brilliant videos. That strange dualism of electronica and songwriting sits alongside this other dualism of the beautiful and moving against the very english sense of the irreverent and ridiculous." - Peter Hollo

"Eccentric and artful." - Warp Records

"All you could desire from a gig. One of the most inspirational music acts we have ever experienced." ★★★★★ - Todolist

"If you want to put your brain in the blender, have a listen - it's a bit like if Aphex Twin wrote British music hall songs... in a good way." - Tomás Ford

"Peak fringe." - Joe Black
