Cracked silk 1

Already being described by the musical la-de-das as:

'a night that's on at Power Lunches on the 31st of March,' 

CRACKED SILK represents the best, British form of anarchism - a night that will grab the music scene by the groin, then apologise profusely and wash its hands afterwards. Underground music with neither the cheesy whiff of pretentiousness nor the playground ambience of cliqueyness.

Cheap beer is available.

(very available)

SLUM OF LEGS

Seeing Double presents:

Slum Of Legs 

A self described punk monster and featuring members of The Blue Minkies and The Chemistry Experiment. Slum Of Legs play a kind of dark mysterious goth pop. Equally influenced by post punk and psych, their music is hypnotic, ominous and exciting. They have a demo and a 7" out on Tuff Enuff records, and have another 7" out later this year.

http://riotsnotdiets.bandcamp.com/album/begin-to-dissolve

Grubs 

Featuring members of Two White Cranes and Joanna Gruesome, they have recorded a single that was released jointly on Cool Your Jets and American label Aloe Music. They have recently recorded an album due for release later this year. Grubs play brilliant, exuberant pop music.

http://grubs.bandcamp.com/

Witching Waves

With an album already out on Soft Power, this 3 piece are currently working on album number 2... The New Order side of post punk and the pop side of The Vaselines.

https://soundcloud.com/witching-waves


Big Joanie

These amazing Sistah Punks brought a tape out on Tuff Enuff records last year. Black Feminist punks who have the guitar hooks of the best 90s guitar bands (such as the breeders) but with the spirit and melodies of 60s girl groups

A Grave With No Name
Their fourth album, Feathers Wet, Under the Moon is out May 4th via Lefse.

"A Grave With No Name mine their own distinctive vein of haunted art rock, tracing delicate fissures in the emotional radiography of loss and longing to spellbinding effect."

https://soundcloud.com/lefse-records/orion

With support from 
Carriages
A new prospect feat/ members of  Sleeping States, Soeza and Bob Tilton babbling about boys and rockets over a playful racket.

DARK MATTER

£5 on the door / 7-midnight
A night of cyber-soul and crypto-funk. Three bands toeing the line between animal and aethereal plus two DJ-citizens of the global village.
Uther moads​ (Depth Sound / Dramatic)
Hurtling towards the outer limits of human emotion, lines of power, brittle fracture. Electro-acoustic shamanism, future-jazz and synth-punk.
Paco Sala​ (Digitalis)
The boundaries between yourself and higher-dimensional beings are slowly dissolving. Ultimate tonal unity. Weightless R&B.
Antidröm​ (Depth Sound)
Hearing messages through the rail tracks, living in these liminal spaces. Alone at last. Dark ambient and sub-aquatic electro.
with outré selections from
Jambie​ (We Buy Gold​)
Kit Records​ (NTS Radio​)
Soft susurrations of solar wind nudge entropy ever onwards. A probe in deep space veering imperceptibly off course. Emanations from behind the Druidic veil. Even the chair you sit on and the beer you sip are conscious. The stone does not want to be thrown.

ALGIERS

http://algierstheband.com/

 Algiers are one of the most exciting guitar groups we've heard from America in recent times...'Irony. Utility. Pretext.' has a pleasingly Laibachian vibe to it, shot in the Buzludzha Monument, a gigantic and decaying communist edifice atop a peak in Bulgaria. Stark slogans such as "A nation regenerates itself only upon heaps of corpses" (a quotation from French revolutionary Louis Antoine de Saint-Just) flash up on top of footage of leftist decay and the band breakdancing. Tanz mit Algiers!  http://thequietus.com/articles/17503-algiers-band-video

SILENT FRONT

Silent Front - I can't remember a time where Silent Front didn't exist so am excited to be able to announce a set from this hard working noise rock trio.
Rat the Magnificent - "Rat the Magnificent are a wine based power quartet from South London wine wine wine. A mix of obstinance and oblivion, this vox/geetar/geetar/bass/drum unit raised in Dorset have been blasting out for a year now."

Fickletwin - a lazy man would describe this band as Derby's very own Pissed Jeans. Fickletwin could be considered Derby's very own Pissed Jeans.

Choice Apparel - This duo has been thrown out of enough bands that they have managed to gather enough stolen riffs to get away with a gig. Amiga samples compete with 2 bass guitars on a shitty behringer mixer

Static Shock Gig Vol #73

GOOD THROB
"In 2014, the best punk scene in the world is in London, England, and the best band out of that scene is Good Throb. KY Ellie and the gang rage through eleven of the most acerbic punk rock cuts to be conceived in modern time, brimming over with true-life vitriol and the means to carry it out. Imagine the murderous passion of The Feederz clenched in the fists of Kleenex with a scratched-up Erase Errata picture disc jammed in a Vomit Visions sleeve and you're close to Good Throb, although there is no way to hypothesize Good Throb without truly bearing witness. Following two stunning 7" EPs, Good Throb annihilate the LP format with more tunes about moronic men, systemic misery and the many ways in which they can both get fucked. Rather than be the one to say it, I'll go ahead and wait until you hear 'Fuck Off' and consequently pronounce it the album of the year."
CLOCKED OUT
Fast hardcore punk from Glasgow that has Cleveland written all over it. Their debut LP will be out in time for this tour. "I would say this band plays Clevo-style USHC. They've got the high-charge arrangements and riff-tastic songwriting that's characteristic of Nine Shocks Terror, with some moments of hard rocking and simple leading. I'm a sucker for this style, so a good genre exercise record like this is immediately appealing to me. If this band was coming out of NYC or Los Angeles, everybody would be losing their shit and proclaiming how it's the best thing like totes ever."
FRAU
"Punk band from London."
KICHAGI
First gig from this brand new London band.
Friday May 1st
