The following band blurbs come straight from the mouths of our SR chums.
Somewhere between the Dischord punk-funk of Black Eyes, and the scuzzy noise of DFA1979, with a furious punk attitude and amazing live shows. Their album is coming out on Noisestar. Quality.
Highly eclectic and interesting music produced with horns and strings and shifting percussionists, boy-girl vocals and a wide range of influences.
"Brass-assisted post-rock SLASH punk goings on. Like The Delgados playing at being Sweep The Leg Johnny, only better. From Bristol." drownedinsound.com
Deranged screamocore from this most manly of bands. Expect them to prowl around the audience in a sweaty, drunken, vaguely intimidating sort of way.
"Listening to Hunting Lodge is like being yelled at by an alcoholic in an indie disco, which is something I’m sure we can all relate to. Somewhere between The Fall and falling over" collective-zine.co.uk
Their website describes them as "non song based mass frequency pioneers". They forgot to mention very loud and exceptionally good.
Plus DJs from Silver Rocket (obviously) and Drowned In Sound (d'uh). Flyers, further information, playlist etc is available here.
