Experimental electro-industrial, rising stars. Kalev celebrate their latest dark, rhythmic release in the form of double A-side 'Slight Death Of You' / 'Glass Crowd' with a return to New Cross Inn. A venue they "accidentally headlined" in such magnificent style that they've been enticed back. Check this out!!!
Following the success of singles 'Undoing' (winner of Zane Lowe's 'Fresh Meat' on Radio 1) and 'Cutting at Nothing' (Top 3 UK Rock chart and XFM 'Drive Time' winner), KALEV have toured the UK, played a session on the John Kennedy show and headlined Frog at The Astoria. The south london quintet have been described as 'the sonic equivalent to drawing a straight line from Ian Curtis to Trent Reznor' (Gigwise) and are winning a fierce reputation on the live circuit.
ROYAL TREATMENT PLANT
"aurally delectable, like Sonic Youth meets a scrubbed Babes in Toyland" (Artrocker). Royal Treatment Plant ROCK. Described by The-Mag as "the perfect band" Royal Treatment Planet play edgy punky pop iced with their a live show as in your face as your cheekbones... "rock theatrics and star presence, every song bristling with genius pop attitude and hook-laden guitar abuse" (UK Music Search). "Thank God for front women like Princess P: she is how they are meant to be (Live On Stage)
100 BULLETS BACK
"Slick and class." Drowned In Sound. Trash Disco Bleep Stars take a break from running Oxford's top Synth Club Night - Abort, Retry, Fail? (latest converts = Foals) - to treat London to what Overflow susses as being "Cracking 21st century pop". "Cool as F electro synth pop." Organ. Cyberspace is building an international fan club, they have been play listed on KROQ in L.A., championed on XFM and around Eastern Europe. "They sound like they're on a punk rock budget, they sound all the better for it... Synth pop with attitude" - Organ. Home town gig with Shy Child, then, this evening... Wear Dancing Shoes!
Newer Wave Electronic-Alt Pop loaded with swashbuckling hooks and dance beats. Innercity Pirates were born as, guerilla busking rock n roll rebels "we'll play anywhere!" they say. They were spotted doing their DIY thing at Reading Festival - it earned earned them a slot after NME helped track them down. Pirate gigs and events occur randomly UK wide... they are just what day time radio needs, pure Ear Sex!!!
The door opens, the party starts with double bass, saw and the leftfield surf blues experiment that is Blue Bambinos. They offer to "play at your House Party, Bar Mitzvah, Christening, Ship Naming, Birthdays etc" - so come and grab them!
