Ding dong, good morning!

Poster design by beautiful Matt Reid
The Library & The Packhorse, doors 3.30pm sharp.
“Mind-mangling Crimson-meets-Nucleus wig-out from Brighton’s new prog adventurers. Watch for their head-shredding, fusion-heavy debut“ MOJO
Cowtown are 3 beautiful humans who play disco shapes with a “good human attitude”. Three skids of the disco apocalypse to some people.
Too many bands want to be liked...Desalvo couldn't give a shit...spiralling wildly upwards into brain-mincing genius...it's unfeasibly exciting and genuinely upsetting in equal measure" - 8/10 METAL HAMMER
Like Jesus Lizard been told off by Fugazi. Basically this is music for people who are not crap. That includes me and you so let’s have a lovely time.
riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff after riff. Boom.
Monster Killed By Laser:
Formed way back in 2001 as 3 now 4. Instro Prog Rock heavily influenced by brooding soundtracks, Black music and culture, conceptual recordings and the hair line of King Crimson's Adrian Belew circa 84.
7 Hertz, it is experimental folk where progress is being made pushing the boundaries and delighting the modest crowds at their shows.
Year of the man:
Apocalyptic posty metal that slams you brain, really great band. In fact they melt my face. Think hive destruction era Isis meets Baroness. Lovely.
Chickenhawk is a raging schizophrenic multi-personality disorder of an album. Insanely original and musically adept the four members have fashioned a UK sound that stands up to the heavy avant guard of Naked City and Mr. Bungle whilst also having the riffs and head-banging nature of Melvins and Harvey Milk.
Brontide play very nice melodic mathy stuff but with nice heavy bits with a dash of rhythm but NOT white boy funk. Repeat NOT white boy funk. Ex IWACS member too, but these boys sound nothing like that.
Stirring passages of instrumental rock music that rarely relies solely on the standard quiet-loud-quiet template. 7/10 Mike Diver Drowned In Sound. The also have a very hairy but fit drummer.
Blacklisters have been knocking around Leeds for a few years now honing their craft so that their music has gradually become harder and harder to listen to.
After a slight "hiatus" they've returned having written a new set of killer tunes and undergone some minor plastic surgery.
"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” – Upset the rhythm
Castrovalva harness their powerful sound and drive it into harsh improvisational bass-driven progressive rock reminiscent of influences such as Lightning Bolt, Xbxrx, Hella, Arab on radar, Death From Above 1979 & Oxes.
+Room 237 dj's playing future music throughout the day.
