New Weird Nottingham/Care In The Community/Three Cheers present...WEIRDAPALOOZA featuring...
THE STRANGE BOYS (USA, In the Red Records)
The Strange Boys come on like a mid-'60s Rolling Stones messed over by the Black Lips; all major keys and jangling guitars, but with a filthy agenda.
LOVVERS (Whichita Records)
Hometown heroes return after 2nd US tour to celebrate the release of their debut LP OCD GO GO GO GIRLS. Expect a lot of jiving.
MALE BONDING (Sub Pop)
To quote the vivian girls ‘they’re like if three dudes from pre were obsessed with nirvana.’ yup. or like sonic youth with tunes. which is what i want from sonic youth these days as they’re getting really goddam boring. write a two and a half minute nugget of shiny pop squall please kim and thurston. in fact you don’t need to since male bonding beat you to it. chumps. anyway this is ace. (Cowsarejustfood)
Brighton dudes creating upbeat, deep fuzz, shoe-gaze indie that packs a bit more punch than the likes of Crystal Stilts. If Wavves covered a Shop Assistants track, you'd be around the right mark. awesome!!
THE HIPSHAKES (Goner Records)
Blistering UK teenpunk angst, straight from the garage -- blares so loud that we applied a warning label for your speakers. Fans of GG ALLIN, GUITAR WOLF, OBLIVIANS, REATARDS, KBD take note!
Drunkest, sloppiest, tightest, craziest garage band ever to come from Worcesters fair streets.
Punk trio knocking out snarling garage punk which'll make your nuts swing taking in influences like Die Kreuzen, Make-Up, The Mummies and the Bad Form. Don't expect no jingle jangle.
...Plus Djing from Sex is Disgusting, Three Cheers, William Withers, NWN & lots more.
...And a BBQ
...And Distro Stalls
...And other stalls - message us if you want to do something!
