We're very excited to finally get our E.P 'Slow Men Drive Fast Cars' out there.
It's released on 16th April and to celebrate we're playing
a show @ Power Lunches in Hackney.
We have great support from Council, La Trappistine and another unconfirmed act, some performance poetry and DJS spinning top choons after the bands are done.
It's on bank holiday Sunday 20th April, so Sunday messiness with none of the Monday blues.
More details to follow on this page.
Clean ya boots and get down for some classy boogie woogie!

IAN SIEGAL (SOLO)
+ TREVOR MOSS AND HANNAH LOU
Power Lunches, 446 Kingsland Road, London E8 4AE
Tuesday April 22nd 2014. 8pm-Late. £14.00
Ian Siegal: Though he is best known as a bluesman and variously described as a legend and a national treasure, a typical Siegal solo show is much more than blues, taking in the American folklore of songwriters such Guy Clarke and Townes Van Zandt, and his own genre-defying songs. What binds together this varied repertoire is Siegal's fabulous voice and command of the guitar.
Siegal is known as a bluesman, but it's just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. They say you can't sing the blues until you've lived the life, and when Ian Siegal steps up to the mic, you can hear the slings and arrows. Recent years have seen the songwriter catch fire, with British Blues Awards raining down and consecutive nominations in 2012 & 2013 for Contemporary Album of The Year in the Blues Music Awards - in effect, the Grammys of the Blues. https://soundcloud.com/iansiegal

Trevor Moss &
Hannah-Louare a husband-and-wife
team of song-writers and musicians.In 2008 they
established a folk club in London, The Lantern Society, which in
2009 also became the home of Lantern Society Radio Hour. Hosted by
Trevor Moss, this bimonthly show features live performances,
interviews with the artists, and first glimpses of brand new music
by The Lantern Players.
They decided to become a duo after having released the album Indigo Moss with their band of the same name in 2007. Three singles were released from it, gaining the song-writing partnership much national radio play. Consecutive singles achieved record of the week status on BBC Radio 2's Radcliffe and Maconie, and Phil Jupitus shows.https://soundcloud.com/trevormossandhannahlou

SWEETHEART ep launch
HUMAN HANDS (Stratford-Upon-Avon/Iceland) - http://humanhands.bandcamp.com/
Crushingly bleak 90s emo with all kinds of Indian Summer/I Hate Myself vibes running through.
CARSON WELLS (Aberdeen, UK) - http://carsonwells.bandcamp.com/
Twisting and mesmerising post-hardcore trio from Aberdeen, playing a rare London show. Brings to mind the likes of Kolya and Sinaloa.
SOLEMN LEAGUE (Berlin, Germany) - http://solemnleague.bandcamp.com/
Frantic German post-punk/emo, with a hint of revolution summer vibes for good measure. Older stuff sounds fairly reminiscent of The Van Pelt, new stuff sounds a bit like Wipers.
COUSIN (Brighton, UK) - http://cousintheband.bandcamp.com/
Groovy instrumental post-hardcore which conjures up the likes of Polvo/Enablers.
KIN SHOT (London, UK)

Friday 25 April 2014
Power Lunches, E8 4AE
WE WILD BLOOD: Loud, heavy, beautiful songs crafted from 2 vocals, a possessed acoustic guitar and violent drums. Wild indeed - Simon and Garfunkel this is not!
MOKSHA MEDICINE: "London five-piece named after Aldous Huxley's writings on psychedelic visionary experiences… Think Grace Slick fronting the Juju era Banshees..." - DIS
SLABS: Clunky repetitive heavy slabs of tripped out sounds from various devices known as synthesisers. They do not play synth pop.
"...lunatic whale song meets the sound of your grandmother's final heart beat making its way through her fragile veins." - John Hass
DR. PORTS: A guest DJ slot packed with rarities and oddities, spun through the third eye of a cosmic needle.
COP tape launch
As part of ODDBOX Weekender 2014 --
The Manhattan Love Suicides
Dressed in black, and back. Again. The best band of the noughties return nearly 5 years after they came to an end. New song '(Never Stop) Hating You' shows they've lost none of their menace.
Making noise, making heat. Their 'Pure // Apart' EP on Odd Box is something of a gem and live the band offer out and out attack with nods to Dinosaur Jr and early Ride. They stole my heart, let them steal yours.
Poppunk! Punk! Pop! Sock! Puppets! Coming over from Denmark we absolutely chuffed to have the Sock Puppets back playing the Odd Box Weekender.
The Wendy Darlings
Over from France and kicking off their tour for their brand new album 'The Insufferable Fatigues of Idleness' (Odd Box).
The Sweet Nothings
Led by Pete Green (he released a single on the proto odd box label, Lost Music, way back when). The Sweet Nothings shimmer with sparkly nuggets of indiepop. Fiercely pop. Fiercely socialist.

From Minneapolis, Condominium have spent the last few years perfecting their killer blend of hardcore punk, garage, no wave, psych, and AmRep-esque noise into a sound all of their own. Featuring ex-members of Formaldehyde Junkies, but sounding nothing at all like that band. Their most recent 7" 'Carl' was released by Sub Pop, and they will have a new self released single 'Thug' for this trip.
London hardcore punk influenced by Rudimentary Peni among others and featuring members of Good Throb, Family Outing and Lich.
Killer new London band who feature two thirds of London / La Vida Es Un Mus mainstays Nailbiter and continuing on with their perfected mix of Japanese meets Swedish influenced hardcore. For fans of Deathside, Anti-Cimex and delayed vocals.

Math/ Ambient/ Post-Rock
Soaring cinematic post-rock
"It was the sheer excitement in the room knowing that there was something extraordinary about to happen. Six of them slowly but surely start to invade the stage to set up all their equipment, electric violins, electric violas, electronic drum pads, even a joystick...." BEARDROCK
Groove-heavy jazzy instrumental math for fans of Don Caballero and TTNG.
HE WAS EATEN BY OWLS
Virtuosic post-math duo blending the technical fervour of math-rock with the intricate and heavily textured nature of classical and jazz.
Enchanting and beautiful solo a capella heart-break layered with loops and pedals.
Warm and comforting, strange and haunting ambient cinematic soundscapes.
