Crushing Death & Grief resent:
FLOAT RIVERER + HALO HALO + PETE UM
Thu 17th Nov @ The Corner House, Cambridge
Doors 8pm £4 adv/£5 door
This couple of nefarious dweebs formed the group Float Riverer whilst hitching around Britain last year. Just guitar and drums, with a mix of barked and crooning vocals, are employed in the creation of super-catchy garage pop gems with dirt under the fingernails. Formerly found in Hotpants Romance and I Had An Inkling, they cook up some kind of Sebadoh/The Clean/Scout Niblett/Sleater-Kinney/The Fall/Thee Oh Sees bouillabaisse, heavy on the pepper. By the time of this gig they’ll have already toured Europe twice, put out an eponymous LP and got Everett True all excited too.
Halo Halo are a pretty unlikely-sounding trio who play some kind of South and East Asian pop music mixed with early 80s post-punk dance beats and howling boy-girl harmonies. Named after a popular Filipino pudding they create the same kind of excitement that you probably got the first time that you heard The Slits, except The Slits never used electric banjo. Totally ruling live, believe us.
Grindingly awkward shithop.
