The Bastard has sold all his wives and is celebrating by having a jolly bash at Preston's finest muzak beer well, Mad Ferret. Joining us for the night we are being treated to four of the finest ****ing mucky Bastard bands to grace eyes and ears.
Headlining the night for the opening gig of their UK tour is the mighty red machine you know as KONG! After their debut LP Snake Magnet last year charted 14 in Rock-a-Rolla mag...azine, they return to Preston to show you what they do and how damn well they do it.
On tour with Kong across the UK, making a welcome return to Preston are Castrovalva. With a perfect mix of everything your Mother said was bad or you these guys have been defying any labelling and lulling people into their world.
"At only 27 minutes long, and with so many changes of pace and style, We Are a Unit is a breathtaking listen. But it's this brevity and diversity that allows Castrovalva to shine where other fearsome live acts have failed."
Second band of the evening are Elohymn. Instrumental thuggery from Chorley, samples you'll never find outside of their sets and Hopey's pedal board. Tres excited to see these boys again.
Opening the evening will recently reformed Aurota. Reports from the gigs since reforming have included the words "really good", "hardly anyone was smoking while they were ON. Well, apart from the band....!" and "Rob."
Inbetween these men will be DJ bassAPE. He will be spinning Simon & Garfunkel's seminal tunes as covered by Napalm Death, Slayer's take on The Lighthouse Family and Prurient if i get drunk enough to ask him.
The smartest, sharpest of Dave's will be on the door, so be nice to him. You only have to pass his palm with just £5 get into this amazing night of music.
