a.P.A.t.T. + CHOPS + CANAVERAL
Thu 1st May @ The Portland Arms, Cambridge
8pm, £4 in
Witness the all-encompassing brilliance of Liverpool's "every-wave" obsessive compulsives, chewing up elements of every musical genre you ever heard (and a few you haven't), carefully and carelessly churning them into new, unrecognisable, magnificent shapes. An amalgamation of all that has come before & all that will slowly catch up in the end, mashed up together in jaw-dropping live performances. Whatever your band can do, a.P.A.t.T. have already done it - better.
New album, 'Black & White Mass', out now on Pickled Egg Records (home to Daniel Johnston, Need New Body, Fulbourn Teversham, etc).
Freewheeling dysfunctional big beat drums! Cosmic keys! Mind controlling tone generators! Limb shaking guitars! Shifted sax! Jazz lounge with uncomfortable sofas! Broken R'n'B! Calypso played naked in the fridge-freezer! Euphoric knees-up! Psychedelic forays into wonk pop music! Fresh faced fortune tellers! Tear jerkers! Motivational speakers! One Love Revivalists!
Split 12" out very soon on Upset The Rhythm! Records (Death Sentence: Panda!, John Maus, No Age, Trencher, etc) Members of Chops have been found in Quack Quack, EYE HAI, Inecto School and Mansun. One of these is a lie.
Cambridge-based, three-man, party-noise beast featuring members of Latahs, The Tupolev Ghost, The Puncture Repair Kit and Fuzzy Lights.
