8pm – Midnight
The Chapman Family (Stockton-on-Tees)
We're big fans of these fiery teesiders so we've got them coming back to London for some dark new wave punk. Jittery riffs, big fuck off drum explosions and electrifying performances. Imagine if The Futureheads had a taste for metal…..
"Swaggering new-wave call to arms, proving to be absorbing, alluring and completely contagious.' & "destined for greatness" NME
'It's a brutally hard noise...what strikes is the sheer momentum that the Chapman's generate. They motor along in a blur of anger.' Artrocker
the slow blade (London)
Engulfing you in a cloak of frenetic guitar work and dark pulsating electronics and bass grooves so deep and dirty it's got the devil head banging.
Nick Cave meets Depeche Mode with the menace of Nine Inch Nails.
Elfred & The Uber Peas (Colchester)
We've had them once and couldn't wait to have them back. Spunky sax playing, sweet punchy rhythms and tumbling vocals all collide in a ramshackle frenzy of Twisted Charm punk. Irresistible.
"you guys were awesome.......it was funk...dirty funk......nasty funk that you could dance to.....nasty but nice....with at the drive in have-it-ness...i loved it!" (Guy outside the toilets in The Railway - Winchester)
