The bands: WE BECOME LESS, VENETIAN LOVE TRIANGLE, CONTRA
WE BECOME LESS
There are three of them and they are LOUD. The singer/guitarist lives in Aberdeen, the drummer in Falkirk, and the bassist in Edinburgh, so that makes them very Scottish indeed, but not in a Proclaimers kind of way. They say, "combining the emo-punk-core sentiments of 100 Reasons, the nu-metal tightness of Lostprophets, the mind bending grooves of earthtone9, along with many genres in-between", their second release on a nu Aberdeen label currently has the working title of 'Emo For Dummies'. Cheeky.
VENETIAN LOVE TRIANGLE
Along with Mercury Tilt Switch, 1" Volcano and Laeto, VLT are one of those bands from Dundee's underground rock scene, and finish off their first 'proper' UK tour in fine style tonite. They claim Braid and Sonic Youth as influences and have gigged with the likes of Jetplane Landing, The Pattern and Clinic.
Speed-punk from Aberdeen via Tunbridge Wells or something. Their last demo was an ace blend of punk, rock'n'ska, and they have built up a healthly following in their home-city to become one of the most-liked and popular bands in the area. They've gained some suitable support slots with Capdown, Lightyear and The Kennedy Soundtrack. And they are really bloody good, alright?
NOTE#1: We are running this 15 mins earlier cos it all ran overtime last week and people weren't happy. Tube strike didn't help much either.
NOTE#2: There may be flyers floating round London Town which have QUERELLE listed for this gig. Unfortunately they sadly had to cancel due to inter-band struggles.
NOTE#3: The next DiS gig has no Scottish bands playing whatsoever, which is a first.
