8pm | £6 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/281709
SUN FOOT are a Portland/Los Angeles trio who play low volume tunes through small amps and a drum set that consists of a hand drum, cymbal, pan lids, and electronic drum pad, all three singing, playing random cheap electronic keyboards maybe, and switching of instruments probably. Good to listen to if you are interested in the sun and tired of negativity. Sun Foot features Ron Burns (of Smog, Hot Spit Dancers, Swell), Chris Johanson (the painter, The Deep Throats, Tina Age 13) and Brian Mumford (Dragging an Ox through Water, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Thicket, Jewelry Rash) all as members. Imagine Flipper and Chuck Mangione getting together and you're almost there.
MEN OH PAUSE are a dark DIY punk outfit from the darker recesses of the Sussex countryside. Featuring Jacindy Cartland from 'King Alfred, Man Of Leisure', Maureen Bourne from 'Leopard Leg' and Flo Brooks from 'Chaps'. Their debut EP, 'Pulse Check', was recorded in Lewes in winter 2013/14. The EP features four slices of claustrophobic, anxiety-strewn, lo-fi DIY punk, pressed in a run of 250 on black vinyl with download code included, Tuff Enuff Records, check it!
CODY NOON are Charlie Butler and Suzy Antoniw. They are a stripped-down two piece beat combo from London, who play instrumental, minimal yet atmospheric droning mazes of sound to varying degrees of proficiency.

With DJ PLAISTOW-FACTO
& DJ QUIETTE VILLAGE
First show in months from London's best hardcore punk band. They are about to record a new record and I'm sure will be playing a bunch of new material at the show! Featuring people from Good Throb, Personnel, The Love Triangle, Die, Gloss Rejection and way too many more.
Outstanding raw punk. Mexican inept punks met the ORDEN MUNDIAL singer when he was travelling in Mexico and recorded a killer Realities of War filtered by Swedish first wave of Kang bands 7", now they are over here to play just a few shows. Out of control, dirty and basic hardcore punk which couldn´t be made anywhere else but in Mexico. This will probably be your only chance to see them play over here, so don't miss out.
Aggressive, blunt but catchy hardcore from new London band. Members of Woolf and Semi.

Recently Tom relocated to Leeds and assembled a full band are the world's premier band that brings straight edge hardcore played with plenty of punk enthusiasm with Oi! and street punk influences mixed in. 2014 finds the band touring stateside with their brother band The Flex as well as recording a debut LP for Revelation Records, the first ever for a non-North American band for the label.
