Choosing some of his favorite UK acts the former Among the missing and Soon the darkness front man who is now a solo entity in his own right curates a day of some of the finest and heaviest acts within the UK currently.

Saturday 7th November@the Windmill Brixton
22 Blenheim Gardens Brixton, SW2 5BZ Tel: 020 8671 0700
£5 Advanced/£6 Door
Psych grooves of sonic wizardry.
London's Invasion are gaining much attention currently and with their Debut album having just arrived their stars are in ascendancy… ex do me bad things singer's Soulful vocals teamed up with two fine sonic sculptors who have mixed physcaedlic rock with Thrash and come up with something really rather marvelous! Catch em now before they take off into space!
TIMOTHY C HOLEHOUSE (London)
Dark epic movements.
The Birthday man himself. Playing with Electric Mud generator backing him up tonight. After his first album in this guise selling out in two weeks on dead pilot records he has completed and will soon see the release of his 2nd album in search of the binarystar. On this record as tonight he is joined by Electric mud generator from Leeds. Think long drawn sound scaped material rising and falling like Galicia's creeping slowly to a dramatic stunning conclusion.
ELECTRIC MUD (Leeds)
On Totally Prog records from Leeds Electric Mud generator play twice tonight backing up Timothy C Holehouse and playing their own set. They're own material is somewhere between mystical folk and progressive rocks finest sounds. Three of the most amazing musicians interweaving their finely crafted skills to make something truly wonderful.
END OF LEVEL BOSS (London/Hampshire)
Groove laden phsyc stoner rock.
Ex Hangnail Harry and his band have made quite a fantastic niche for themselves… Games console progressive rock and Harry's small stature but massive voice will blow you away. On Exile on Mainstream records they have release some fine records over the last few years blown bigger bands off the stage and generally ruled!
ALABASTER SUNS (London)
Metal riffs; ex-Capricorns.
The demise of the Capricorns was a sad affair one of the best UK bands for a long time. But worry not Alabaster Suns will more than make up for that. Nathan and Kev have teamed up with ex frightener bassist Anthony dearlove and produced something special. In no way are they living in the shadows of the old band either forging a new more heavy and technical path. With Kev's smattering of brutal vocal delivery they are stripped down and ready for action.
CRUMBLING GHOST (London)
Folk prog doom.
This could be a super group of sorts featuring ex Fanta plastic, Among the missing, Huge baby and current Koresh and small gang members. They have played as part of Damo Suzuki's improv group and played some very good initial shows. Sounding like a progressive doom band who have been listening to way to much Fairport convention (in a good way that is). This new band deliver the physcadelic goods.
YOU'RE SMILING NOW BUT WELL ALL TURNS INTO DEMONS (Portsmouth)
Wizards in a blizzard.
Portsmouth's finest bringers of doom soaked phsyc… think what it would have been like if Rocky Erikson had been in the melvins. And your not even half way there.
THE DEATH OF HER MONEY (Newport, Wales)
Metal doom soaked riffs.
From Wales these riff heavy fellas have toured the UK and they're records on Rat patrol have won them many fans. On tour with Hitcher this is the first time in a while they have played the capital.
Slow building from Edinburgh.
Imagine walking the streets of Edinburgh while in the shadows something lurks that you know at any point will jump out at you. This is Hitcher… slow building songs that explode into a frenzy of riffs and brutal vocals. On their tour across the country with Death of her money… we bring you Hitcher!
ATTACK! VIPERS! (Portsmouth)
Hard fast and heavy as hell!
The best UK hardcore band! Fact! Heavy and manic basically mind blowing hardcore played with the style and passion it should be played. Their debut album made massive waves in the scene and their currently working on a follow up after several split releases and constant touring. Also in the pipeline is a collaboration with Timothy C Holehouse.
Solid dynamic building Sonics from the planes.
With a vast amount of touring and their second album under their belt Sheffield's Flatlands have very much built their own sound. With influences in early 90's emo to Post rock and post metal. They make their unique sound crushing and moving you in equal measures. With songs about growing up in a the Fen's (where they are originally from) One of the finest bands in the UK!
TIGER WARSAW (Lincoln)
Mostly instrumental dynamic sculptures.
All the way from Lincoln Tiger Warsaw are more than just another instrumental post metal band. They not only have awesome hooks and riffs that draw you in they rock out rather than just gazing at the stage like a lot of the bands within the genre do. Prepare to have your socks blown off!
