"Twenty years from now, if I get asked to come up with a list of records or artists that speak of the late 2000s, then Neil Campbell’s Astral Social Club will be on it. The collision of electronic and acoustic textures is extreme and compelling all at once – spastic drum machines, flickering synthesizer riffs, mangled guitar lines and countless other bits of sonic debris cluttering and then overloading the stereo spectrum. This density of sonic information, packed into every ASC piece, overwhelms, and aurally approximates our own daily information flood, suggesting that instead of resisting it, maybe we should ride it". (Matthew Wuethrich, Dusted Magazine)

Project for Neil Campbell's solo and small group outings post-Vibracathedral Orchestra. Neil Campbell (born 19 May 1966) is a British musician, notable for his vast catalogue and his many collaborations.
