Arrgghh! Christmas is such a wonderful time to stay in and watch TV, maybe eat four times your body weight in maltesers and drink exotic kinds of fancy expensive alcohol to help you through those difficult conversations with the members of your family that you are not allowed to HATE-well you can escape all that JOY and come to the last Damnably gig of the year! at the warm and super friendly Brixton Windmill-where they sell all kinds of lovely beer.
Here is your SUNDAY escape plan!

Agatha (Milan Italy) Italy's answer to the Vivian Girls. This all woman super energetic post punk trio scream with the riot grrrl attitude of L7, Team Dresch and Babes in Toyland. They live for hard drinking, hard touring and harder rocking with songs expounding their hatred of high heels, the problems of being a Scorpio and those tricky 'three night stands', it is hard not to fall for this bullshit free band-who are already the greatest band in Italy!.www.myspace.com/agathatrio
"Agatha trio are visceral and often cathartic, fast, faster, the fasted" - direct impact
"3 of the coolest girls in all of Italy! It's loud and chaotic noise rock." Tapes not bombs
Dredlunadare Barking based uber heavy shellac'ish noizenik three piece that stir up a crazed angular ruckus which is several orders of magnitude more interesting than many of the Math Rock clones currently hogging London stages.
"Fearless sound experimentalists something like John Bonham drumming for The Fall then produced by Steve Albini. Buckle up and take the ride." Bull and Gate
What Price Wonderland Clever midlands math rock trio melding a vibrant sound splicing together the best of Cap'n Jazz, Minutemen, and Fugazi-these tricky riffers with an expansive back catalogue of 10 releases thus far are one of the mathlete acts you need to catch in 2008!
Former Utopia-Possibly, the only indigenous cockney still remaining in East London and is a genre hopping song smith as happy skronking out furious post-punk on a modified 6 string bass or quirky black humoured alt. folk on a raggedy acoustic. He has gigged with Chris Brokaw, The Thalia Zedek band, Swell, Mick Turner (Dirty Three) and P.W Long. www.myspace.com/formerutopia
"like (smog) on holiday in shellac" Drowned in Sound
