"CHOPS are a wild, damaged-dance band, who leapt from the cauldron of Leeds' ever-evolving DIY musical stew and hit the ground running in 2007, hellbent on perfecting their spontaneous combustion of jazzoid excess and lock-popping party bombs. The power-trio married up their love of fidgety drum patterns, effect-drenched saxophone and synthesizer showdowns in such a way that every broken sound that swelled forth was caked in euphoria and creeped-out gravity.
CHOPS don't so much make music as radiate it. Their sound is playful, often making unprejudiced leaps in harmony, sometimes defying logic in their conscious pursuit of the futile and incoherent in an attempt to echo our modern everyday. However that doesn't mean they are are random nonsense. Far from it, bold songs emerge from tumbling rhythmic soups, pulsing with life and purpose before they are sucked into another portal."
TWO MINUTE NOODLES!
"Two Minute Noodles are a kitsch, French 60's Alfred Hitchcock film jazz disco duo, who have previously played in acts such as Damo Suzuki Network, Procul Harum, Quack Quack. On stage they are loud, abrasive, fun and hypnotic.They must be seen to be believed!"
Hertfordshire's premier psychedelic punk outfit play a scaled down acoustic set. Now in their sixth year and featuring a new line up, expect something amusing, intense, aggrivating and hella fun.
