Anticipating a DiS-mal turnout from readers of these pages, I gamely plug anyway:
It's been a wee while, but The Display Team brings Bad Hedge back to The Miller with some wonky sounds to try and cram incongruously into our oh-so-humanly shaped lug-holes. If you are not already conversant with Bad Hedge, our aim is to bring together bands that we deem interesting, in the hope of disseminating their work to a wider audience. This time around we have a fantastic headliner;
HAM LEGION - Hailing from Brighton, and in their own words;
"Ham Legion's noisy lo-fi pop is punctuated with proggy outbursts, psychadelic breakdowns and passages of cod-metal joy. Tangy and tart guitar, egg noodle bass lines and light crispy drums are smothered in gooey boy/girl harmonies. Eat in OR take away."
Their delightful sounds can be sampled right here - https://soundcloud.com/hamlegion
In the middle slot;
FOLIE A DEUX FEMME - Bass Clarinet and Harp duo, in the contemporary classical vein. But with funkier twists. Expect tonal, timbral and rhythmic surprises.
Opening the show;
THE DISPLAY TEAM - Once again, TDT are a six-brained beast with the recent arrival of Josh Perl, our new guitarist/singer. He is mighty fine. Expect twisted brain-wrongs from this collection of man-mentals (credit to Chris Morris for this phrase which I borrowed and modified). In case my terrible ineptitude at description is a barrier to knowing what I'm on about, our music is here - http://thedisplayteam.bandcamp.com/album/drones
Doors at 730pm, £5 in. It's going to be a cracker. Oh, and if you bring a miniature shrub of some kind, and make it suitably "bad", you can get a quid off the entry fee. The Miller is at 96 Snowfields, London, SE1 3SS, which is dead close to London Bridge Station.
Please come, because you probably need to see these bands. Probably. Please?
