The Vapour Trail, London's premier dark and noisy rock clubnight, returns on Wednesday April 9th at Nambucca on the Holloway Road. Previously at The Old Kings Head, the clubnight runs on every THIRD Wednesday of the month now after the first Nambucca night, so amend your diaries and get ready. As per usual, we will be playing the very best in shoegaze, post-punk, C86, gloom rock, noise pop, alt.rock, goth, psychedelia, indiepop, grebo and space rock and you will witness an array of fabulous bands each month. Previously, along with North London owners The Firm, bands that have graced the Vapour Stage include The Drowners, Untitled1961, Doe Face Lillian, Monocle Rose, The Resistance and Monday Club. 2008 will see further brilliance from those and more.
WEDNESDAY APRIL 9TH
LIVE MUSIC FROM:
(DJ Magenta's band, already got a single out and display rather a similarity to shoegazers Curve and grebo gurus Pop Will Eat Itself. Bubbling electronics and crunchy and ethereal guitars topped off with excellent vocals. Not to be missed!)
(The villains of the outfit. We thud, jangle and pop while using lots of feedback and sneering sarky poetry at people. This time we'll try and play in time with each other)
(Early Cure meets Holy Bible-era Manics. Previous Trailblazers so we thought we'd have them back. Excellent tunes played in intense fashion. The bassist's quite hot too)
Featuring Special Guest DJ Set From Markus Keaney.
DJ SETS EACH MONTH FROM: Julia Sieradzki & Magenta Placenta.
ALSO, each month we publish a little fanzine with all manner of genius inside its pages. You can read it, burn it, wipe your arse on it, do what the hell you like with it. But don't dismiss it. Articles from it can be viewed here: http://vapourtrailfanzine.blogspot.com
