It's been an astonishing year for GoGo Penguin. Their last album, v2.0, ended up on the Mercury shortlist. They've been touring the world to increasingly large and absurdly enthusiastic audiences, at venues as diverse as Koko, Union Chapel and the Barbican in London; Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival in the south of France, La Vilette in Paris, Über Jazz in Hamburg and at Dimensions Festival in Croatia. A first foray to North America saw sold out shows across Canada and a double-standing ovation at the Rochester Jazz Festival in upstate New York. In October they provided a live soundtrack for Godfrey Reggio's cult film Koyaanisqatsi at Manchester's new arts centre Home; in November they collaborated with noted choreographer Lynn Page for a Gilles Peterson-curated night at the London Jazz Festival. And in the midst of all this they've signed a multi-album deal with Blue Note Records, the most famous jazz label on earth. It's a signing that was triggered when Blue Note president Don Was was played v2.0 by the label's French head of A&R Nicolas Pflug. Just two days later they were in Hamburg together to see the band play a barn-storming set at Über Jazz and everything flowed from there.
Their new album is called Man Made Object. "That title is partly inspired by my fascination with ideas of robotics, transhumanism and human augmentation," says pianist Chris Illingworth.
