PANTHER - 7 HERTZ - TIGERS! - THURSDAY MAY 1st @ THE PACKHORSE
DOORS - 8pm £5
Charlie is Panther, and Panther is some mutant form of Charlie. Having recently supported The Gossip, Panther’s music is hard match of damaged soul, falsetto disco and broken synth fueled freakouts which is as addictive as it is challenging. This solo affair of Charlie Salas-Humara isn’t easily ignored for his unpredictable and energetic performances tainted with throbbing bass, minimalistic hooks and jittery dance routines. Panther’s influences run deep and take as much from Pop and R&B as Free Jazz and Punk.
Fluid and engaging, 7 Hertz fluctuate and mutate live before your very ears. incorporating all or none of the following instruments - basson, violin, voice, double bass, french horn, glockenspiel, clarinet, mandolin, trumpet - they improvise glorious pieces with total, beautiful spontaneity. With imaginations that rival those of Tom Waits and Stravinsky this is modern “classical” music that writhes and soothes - is what they say about themselves and I'd have to agree.
Tigers! - either the worlds most criminally underated band or a total pile of dog-shite depending on who you talk too. TIGERS! we're kicking ass when PANTHER we're completing the american version of the KEY STAGE ONE exam! TIGERS! have played with almost every good band on earth including COUGHS, KIT, THE LOCUST, EATS TAPES, FELIX KUBIN, WOLVES...ETC! TIGERS! are not funky! Thats just bullshit talk to encourage people to get into PRINCE! TIGERS! will kick your dick clean off regardless of whether you have one or not.
