Last minute Disappears (with Steve Shelley/Sonic Youth) show at Gullivers in Manchester, this Wednesday
Just booked an extremely last minute show with the excellent Disappears who are touring with Steve Shelley, the legendary Sonic Youth drummer.
Its on Wednesday the 1st June, its at Gullivers on Oldham Street, and it only costs £5 on the door. Going to be an absolute cracker.
Hailing from Chicago, Disappears play minimal rock music. Drawing on a combined reverence for reverb, heavy tremolo, distortion, delay and repetition. Playing off a contrast between rhythmic drive and space but with more noise and a shouted staccato vocal style. Where their mix of Velvet Underground scuzz and krautrock propulsion on debut Lux was pretty melodic, on Guider they're more interested in being hypnotic. Meshing the post-punk approach of Wire with drug rock grooves of Spacemen 3 and some solo Brian Eno moments in a kind of aggressive cosmic rock style. Loud and raw.
Following the departure of drummer and cofounding member Graeme Gibson, Disappears will be performing tonight with their new drummer, Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth). Also features The Ponys/90 Day Men's Brian Case.
