Apologies to ehwhat. His shit's good, man.
But here's the info, y'all:
It's a rum month for Silver Rocket. Rachel and Andy are away at ATP seeing the Breeders...and so are a lot of bands I spoke to. Or if they weren't there they were at The Great Escape.
Anyhow, luckily no barrel scraping was required in the end and we were able to find bands who were able to play in the wishlist.
Those bands are:
GUM TAKES TOOTH
THE ENTIRE ASIAN POPULATION
Gum Takes Tooth
Wow, that's one COLOURFUL myspace page.
Simmons SDS-3 drum synthesiser
It's something like Lightning Bolt, I guess but with extra electronics and general madness. Check the stuff out on the MySpace and be amazed.
Okay, you guys remember the Optimist Club, right? Well Bryn is in a new band and this is the new band. I've heard a track and they sound great. If you liked Optimist Club you should still be liking this. There's a bunch of tracks there to listen to. *** Note I did a spoonerism or whatever and put Lowmatron before. BUH! ***
They describe themselves better than anyone else could: "They are 3 Englishmen, 1 Aussie gal and 1 Pablo. They have successfully grappled with the thorny history of irony/learnt a few notes on ze geetar/enjoy spewing a toxic concoction of sarcasm and elitism through the medium of dissonant, squalling protest musik and clever-dick lyrics for achingly postmodern rubes and tricky bitches. Please enjoy the sounds of the gross saints of the protest scene, cocks!"
The Entire Asian Population
A sort of supergroup that includes members of Oroku Saki and at least one part of the entire Asian population of the planet. May have vocals, may not, may make some stuff up on the spot but it'll be loud and it will rock, believe me.
DJs? Well I will be attempting not to DJ so you can all feel better about that. Oroku Saki will be DJing and probably some other people who I can con into helping out.
There might even be another band added to bill if we get some confirmations.
COSTS: £6 or £4 with a flyer or if you sign up here. I'll be taking down the attendees
Or you can join the Silver Rocket Mailing List by close of business on Thursday from here:
and that'll do you.
