Since forming in Manchester, UK in 1988, Big Block 454 have unleashed a series of albums and multi-media happenings upon an unsuspecting public, combining influences such as Faust, Can, Brian Eno, The Residents, the Bonzo Dog Band, King Crimson and the BBC Radiophonics Workshop - surrealism meets Krautrock meets downright Northern stupidity.
Big Block 454 worked with famed dada artist Russell Mills (Eno / U2 / Nine Inch Nails) on the music for his multi-media project "Measured in Shadows", recording it at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios.
Big Block 454 have guested on Stuart Maconie's BBC 6 Music radio show The Freak Zone and have been championed by Sunday Times writer/comedian Stewart Lee.
In 2011, the Big Block 454 studio relocated to Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire.
