As you've heard, Why? have had to cancel their appearance at Venn due to illness. A real shame...so what now?
The only way to follow a Why? is with a 'Z'. ZUNZUNEGUI are a Bristol-based band from the Blank Tapes stable (Bass Clef, Scatter, Thee, Stranded Horse), who mark a wild, musically lawless and HIGHLY danceable path somewhere between El Guincho and Oxbow. Throw in Konono No. 1 melodic surges, Boredoms-like sonic barrages and Kushal Gaya, a totemic Mauritian frontman who prowls his stage domain like a wounded panther...and, as a witness of their recent roaster of a set with A Hawk & A Hacksaw was moved to declare: 'If you don't like ZunZunEgui, I hate you'. Serve with rum.
Also - listen out for Venn on the Huw Stephens show tonight as part of a general Bristol feature - http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/innewmusicwetrust/huwstephens/
