Rip this Joint burst back into 2011 with TWO WHOLE GIGS!!!
First at The Constitution, Camden, Saturday 15th January 2011, featuring -
ONE UNIQUE SIGNAL - Set controls for the heart of the sun. A welcome return to the RTJ fold by the massed guitars of da Signal. Channeling the spirit of Sun Ra through MBV, Spacemen 3 and MC5 with some tantric trance-rock ragas. http://www.myspace.com/oneuniquesignal
SOLOMON GRUNDY - Early Fugazi/Drive Like Jehu/Shellac/Challenge inspired power trio.They write 3 songs per practice. One of them has a great tash, one of them is tall and the other one drinks Diet Coke 'coz he's watching his figure. http://www.myspace.com/thisistheendof
STUART TURNER & THE FLAT EARTH SOCIETY - Howling troubadour last seen in these parts at our first all dayer in 2009 is back. But this time he's got reinforcements, i.e. a band! Stomping rhythm & blues from the Medway delta.
THE REACTOR CORE is SPLENDID - "Oh god, yes I know but you try dealing with him, the long self pitying, paranoid rants on the phone at 2AM. This was the only way I could shut him up."
