A figure four leg lock of pummelling, AC/DC style repetition Million Dollar Dreaming the angular sounds of classic 90’s Noise rock (ala Touch & Go, Amphetamine Reptile records) all Choke Slammed into the sound of groove laden sludge, these miscreants know how to lay on a beating. And spill your pint. And take a chair shot. And clamber the ceiling. You think Macho Man was on coke during all those classic promos!? Nah mate. He was listening to Super Luxury in the changing rooms.
We’re told this is the best band Action Beat had the pleasure of playing with on tour in a long time, Massciot play their first ever show in MCR. After witnessing their greatness in Lyon, Action Beat Head honcho Don McLean demanded they let him organise their first tour of the UK, now here they are. All-female no-wave krautrocking all-consuming brilliance. With the agressiveness of a tiger in Formica, Massicot oscillates between frank and noisy moments and hypnotic, repetitive phases. An obsessive, rythmic guitar, a modeled bass, a violin as an free electron, tropical kraut drums led by latvian poetry form a mass, a constellation of electrical dinosaurs, imported pineapples, cloud-drawings, intricate rhythms and Dada-jokes.

Bear Bones, Lay Low:
Hailing from Venezuela, now based in Belgium, Ernesto González makes music as Bear Bones, Lay Low. Active since a teenager in the Belgian noise underground, González’s music has evolved from spontaneous bedroom noise/drone explorations to colorfully psychedelic electronic music where analog synthesis meets fuzzed-out guitar freak outs and entrancing rhythms. He has also been part of psychedelic jam band Sylvester Anfang II since 2006 and is part of numerous musical projects including the drone duo González & Steenkiste (with Sylvester Anfang II bandmate Hellvete) and Sayona, a freeform dark electronics collaboration with Shazzula of Black Mass Rising and formerly of psych head bangers Aqua Nebula Oscillator.
