SILVER ROCKET presents:
probably but not definitely in that order. Bands start at 8.30.
Somewhere between the Dischord punk-funk of Black Eyes, and the scuzzy noise of DFA1979, with a furious punk attitude and amazing live shows. Their album is coming out on Noisestar. Quality.
Highly eclectic and interesting music produced with horns and strings and shifting percussionists, boy-girl vocals and a wide range of influences.
"Brass-assisted post-rock SLASH punk goings on. Like The Delgados playing at being Sweep The Leg Johnny, only better. From Bristol." drownedinsound.com
Deranged screamocore from this most manly of bands. Expect them to prowl around the audience in a sweaty, drunken, vaguely intimidating sort of way.
"The bandâ€™s genius (and I donâ€™t use the word lightly) is to produce a sound of distilled aggression so pure that a couple of notes will contaminate everything in a 50 mile radius" decodemedia.com
"Listening to Hunting Lodge is like being yelled at by an alcoholic in an indie disco, which is something Iâ€™m sure we can all relate to. Somewhere between The Fall and falling over" collective-zine.co.uk
Their website describes them as "non song based mass frequency pioneers". They forgot to mention very loud and exceptionally good.
