There's a bloody good gig at the Prince Albert. And only a fiver to get in for four excellent bands.
Here's the details:
STAY SICK! & DIRTY WATER RECORDS present.... ? ? ?
----> THE KITS
Dirty Water signed Australian garage rock 'n' roll!
Adventurous Melbourne garage rock’n’roll scientists THE KITS are soon to deliver with their second album, ‘Lead Us Into Temptation’. They’ve earned themselves a cult following across Europe and the UK through extensive touring over the last 3 years, in support of previous album ‘Primitive Tales’ (Dirty Water Records, 2008).
This was complimented by shows with like-minded souls The Dirtbombs, The Night Marchers, Band of Skulls, Hoodoo Gurus and The Jim Jones Revue, and appearances at festivals like the Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City.
Not to mention they're currently working with producer Chris Bailey, former lead singer of THE SAINTS!!!
This will be their penultimate European gig before we loose them back to down under so don't miss out!
----> THE VENEREANS
Valencian crazed surfpunk who've come to crash your wave all the way from Spain!
" 'Terminal Beach' kicks off with a bassline that reminded me of Klaus Flouride, with some nice Beefheartian dissonant guitar, then into a mashed potato chorus. The whole time there's a nice production touch of a reverby instructive shout in the background. The second track is more of the similar, but straighter and with another killer chorus. Some blurb I found on the net mentioned that the Venereans can't decide whether they want to be Dead Kennedys or the Kinks, but I'd change that Kinks for "Safe as Milk" Beefheart, and then add a touch of Angry Samoans for the speed and production values. They have an LP on Tic Tac Totally - which you can download in its entirety from http://venereans.bandcamp.com/
-Taken from their split 7" review.
Making their much overdue Stay Sick! debut are the magnificent Sealings
Two guys grinding axes with satan by writing dark pop songs full of burning sounds and intensely bad ass groans, they've been crawling out of their pit to play shows in London and the surrounding area over the last few months. And what shows they are.
----> Screaming Tupelo & Dirty White Fever
Brighton's bourbon soaked, nail gargling werwolf returns to grace our stage once more.
Raised at the altar of Elvis and The Cramps, baptised in the fire of sonic fuzz and primitive stomp, Screaming Tupelo is a one man ear-pounding, heart-thumping blues-punk evangelist, delivering his testimony of raw blood and tears, sweat-soaked rock’n’roll. Dirty White Fever join him live on stage half way through the set to give the sound a more full-bodied flavour.
STAY SICK! & DIRTY WATER RECORDS DEE-JAYS SPINNING YA FAVOURITE GARAGE PUNK, TRASH, SURF, ROCK & ROLL ALL NIGHT TO A BACK DROP OF EQUALLY TWISTED CULT B-MOVIE PROJECTIONS!!!
