ROCK Against WAR
Damnably/CND?Brixton Windmill Present 5 bands
Think post punk, alt folk, slowcore and pop combined. Think Joy Division. Karate, Shellac, Codeine and (smog) all rolled into one arty three piece.
As Heard On:
BBC 6music/Resonance FM
Time Out London “ramshackle, yet melodic Alt. Folk”
The Line Of Best Fit “a gentleman blessed with an imposing baritone halfway between Bill Callahan and Absentee”
Crazy Funny Japanese Female garage Rock Trio.
New band!!!! so new they have no website or PR but its the and Bassist/mask wearer from Screaming Tea Party plus 2 from Hot Silk Pocket (Stolen Records)in a new band together playing a similar sort of loud post punkt poppy noise rock.
The Line Of Best Fit “ intimate and charming”
formed in London at the end of 2010, and played their first gig at a Christmas party which featured a cardboard cutout of Larry David.
Their moniker is based on a short story by sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, and their sound is a sparse mixture of post-punk and shoegaze.
One of smallgangs 2 front men, Toshi plays heartfelt intricate, catchy, distorto post-punk songs in this rare solo outing.
As Heard On:
BBC 6music - Tom Robinson Introducing
XFM - X-Posure with John Kennedy
Leith FM - Art School Dancing with Ally Gourlay
XStream East Radio - Painter’s Radio Show
Artrocker: “deceptively deadpan songs often mutate into noisy but controlled thrashing. (Cockpit) is a particularly fine tune.”
Ally Gourlay (Leith FM): “smallgang are brilliant”
The Line Of Best Fit: “Great record”
Time Out: “Stylish art rockers “
The UK is currently fighting waging two Wars it does not need to.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are not to prevent terrorism or to help the people in these countries.
...These wars were instigated for the purposes of oil-extraction and to profit from the manufacture and use/sale of Weapons and equipments used in WAR paid for by Tax-payers in the UK and US.
The cost of this is immense.
Taxpayers are funding these wars and we are seeing large cuts in education, Libraries, Social Services and the NHS as a result.
ROCK against WAR says no to WAR, no to TAXES funding murder and profiteering Arms Companies and No to cuts in the very foundations of what makes our nation civilised and worth fighting for in the first place.
CND/Brixton Windmill/Damnably together with hopefully more promoters and protest groups want to highlight these Wars are not necessary. The Cuts are not necessary. Put Simply:
No WAR=No CUTs.
RAW= amazing bands doing Cheap entry gigs (free entry to Students (with ID)), info Stall from CND and all takings split with CND and bands.
