ARRIVE EARLY FUCKERS
Djs Daughters of the Kaos plus special guests play indie stuff, alternative stuff, lektro stuff, old riot grrl stuff, bad taste stuff and whatever stuff they stuff stuff.
But bands first...............
Robots in Disguise
At the height of our disembodied digital era, two disguised
femme-bots descend to deliver their funkpunk message
to undiscerning humanoids inclined to the sounds of
artful proto punk, exuberant electro-pop and new wave
expressionism. SUE DENIM and DEE PLUME are Robots in
Disguise, two perfectly harmonizing automatons programmed to create crafty left-field punk-pop and paying tribute as
female counterparts to the rock stage personas of David
Bowie and Iggy Pop, respectively. On guitars, xylophone,
flute, and singing, shouting, throwing out DIY moves, RID
entertain their audiences in a true old-skool retro style
mixed with riot grrrl fervor with Dee's aerobic guitar solos
and Sue's grooving bass lines dancing over poetic lyrics and
chunky electronic beats.
They describe themselves as sinister electro-punk adolescents
and cleverly started their sound with a Â£30 kids keyboard put
through an effects pedal and an amp. They're sounding
slightly bloc party, come test-icicles, come
lots of other stuff really but also sounding quite unique.
Blood Red Shoes
Lady Muck and Cat on Form were two band that once existed
but not anymore as the band members are now a new band
called Blood Red Shoes. All two of them.
Ginger Rogers once danced so hard when re-shooting a tap
dancing scene that her poor little plates of meat went all bloody.
Blood Red Shoes want the same to happen at their gigs, um, I think.
They are very loud for just two people, and very exciting.
They like Babes in Toyland, The Bangles, Huggy Bear, Nirvana and
Good Shoes. Oh and blood and gore. But they look so sweet?!
