BRONTIDE – www.myspace.com/brontidetheband
Brontide are a new band featuring former I Was A Cub Scout drummer William Bowerman. The trio deliver complex yet danceable polyrhythms not unlike a meeting of minds ‘tween Battles and Russian Circles. Instrumental with the emphasis on ‘mental’, the band will release their debut EP via Holy Roar (Rolo Tomassi, Gallows, Cutting Pink With Knives) in February. A fabulously exciting prospect.
THREE TRAPPED TIGERS – www.myspace.com/threetrappedtigers
One of Clash’s ones to watch for 2009, London-based three-piece Three Trapped Tigers’ wonderfully accessible instrumental material – math-rock gone wobbly – has had our office bouncing about for some months. Initially an improv’ outfit, the band developed their sound into something more focused, and a self-titled EP released in late 2008 confirmed their epic potential – this is Holy F*ck excitement meets immense precision, and it impressed Strokes producer Gordon Raphael so much he immediately offered to record them. Do not miss!
Plus DJs from Clash and more, drinks offers and FUN.
