Two of Ireland's finest bands....Kasper rosa + A plastic rose
KASPER ROSA http://www.myspace.com/kasperrosamusic
Kasper Rosa are making a return to Nottingham (they toured the UK with Alright the Captain last November) with their own brand of unique music that sends you on a rather deep and dark path. The word apocalyptic keeps popping up to describe these guys and after listening to their music you can tell why. Based in Belfast they will be releasing their second EP in June on Nottingham' Field Records and will tour the UK extensively along with A plastic rose.
A PLASTIC ROSE - http://www.myspace.com/aplasticrose
A Plastic Rose are coming back again in June, purveyors of mid nineties post-hardcore tinged catchy Alternative Rock, rooted firmly in late naughties peacetime Belfast, where they have been cutting their teeth on the northern front since August 2006, APR have received constant airplay on BBC Radio and graced the stages of Reading and Leeds festivals as well as Irelands own Glasgowbury, if anyone caught them at the Central last month then you'll know exactly how good they are!
APES FIGHT BACK - http://www.myspace.com/apesfightback
Have you ever wondered what might happen if you put a couple of primates in a room with a bucket of Red Bull, half a dozen Es, a very large bass rig and a drum kit? Who knows? But it could well sound like the North West musical cataclysm, Apes Fight Back.
The duo, Dan and Dunc, have been plying their unique trade around the UK for a number of years and having recently supported Kong and Part Chimp, are causing one or two stirs in Manchester’s underground scene. They’ve also had international recognition, teaming up with Austrian DIY label, Noise Park Activities to create a now sold out ‘credit card’ CD.
UNION STATION MASSACRE - http://www.unionstation.co.uk
"Local instrumental force to be reckoned with similar to Godspeed, explosions in the sky USM play a mostly instrumental set, with sparse vocals and a warm sound. They brought the biggest crowd of the evening, and most certainly won new fans of their brand of experimental post-rock." One beat
