// GREAT YTENE //
First show for new London four piece. Reverb drenched atmospheric tunes for the escapists and daydreamers. Feat ex members of Colours, debut 7" out on Marshall Teller Records in June. Named after an ancient forest on the south coast, which is epic and cool, not unlike like the band itself.
// PARLOUR //
Angela Won-Yin Mak's Parlour fuses haunted pop vocal melodies, fuzzy, drifting guitars and psych repetitions to create something dreamy, noisy, trippy and awesome. Backed by a band feat members of Warm Brains, they are bound to be an absolute treat. Check it -
// NIGHT FLOWERS //
'Most Northern band in North-East London' (self proclaimed but probably true). Watch in amusement as all 6 members try and find somewhere to stand when playing. Ninetiesesque indie pop with eighties jangle and a touch of the 'gaze.
'Like walking into 'My So Called Life' or an eighties John Cusack film' - Someone at the first gig.
Powerlunches, Kingsland Road
Thursday 30th May
A power blues duo that will attack your senses with songs of occultism, conspiracy paranoia and toxic relationships. Don't miss their debut this side of East London for a night full of sweat, dirty blues and pagan sacrifices.
Noisy punk duo from Tokyo/London with a girl shouting and playing guitar while a guy frantically playing drums. Sometimes very fast, sometimes not so fast.
All female garage pop band.

Ace Bushy Striptease
Birmingham based. Rough and tumble pop music. We love them. They're ace.
Another of the Crackle! Fuzz! Pop! bands complete the line up. Power-pop-punk-pop from Liverpool. Proper good.
With two videos on line City Yelps are gaining something of a reputation as the best new thing to come out of Leeds in a long long time. They may contain an ex-Real Loser and a current Downdime. They've gained comparisons to early Pastels, Prolapse, Swell Maps and The Television Personalities. Yep. They're that good.
Fire. Pop. Fuzz. Pop. Heart beating so fast you think you're gonna die. The Fireworks are fantastic!
Snotty Skate pop punk. Or Something. Crackle! Fuzz! and Pop!
A power trio from Northampton. With guitars and singing. And stuff. They released on a single on Odd Box. They're dead good (we think). Now where did I put that baseball bat? Great new demos up on bandcamp. Oh yes.
Self described as "Chumbawamba for the iPod generation".
The songs up on their bandcamp are pretty damn ace, too.
Model Village are a folksy pop band from London and Cambridge.
Nottingham supergroup featuring members of Red Shoe Diaries and Horowitz. I've heard good reports. It'll be ace to find out what the fuss is all about.
The Contact High
The "Ynd Trio" is a free-improvisation group founded in 2013 by Benedict Taylor, Tom Jackson and Stephen Crowe. The trio perform on clarinet, viola and guitar with electronics. Their music belongs to a rich tradition of experimentation and spontaneous-composition.
Plus Special Guest Phil Minton

The first and hopefully not the last event of 'Power Noise Lunches' series, that will focus on presenting various faces of experimental and noise music.
From ambient to drones and power noise, from D.I.Y. electronics to electro-acoustic improvisations and far beyond.
This first event features:
Ryan Jordan, a well known noise maker to both London and international audience.
Ryan uses self built hardware, stroboscopic light and high volume noise in an attempt to induce hallucinatory and trance like states.
Ampersand - Their noise is created using pianos carcasses,
fractured keyboards, shell casing, corrugated iron, metal
sculptures scaffold and brass pipes.
Their influences include This Heat, Faust and Einsturzende Neubauten. website: www.ampersand.tv
Tiger Walking Downhill
They combine a variety of instruments and sound-sources such as electronic toys, circuit bending, mixers, turntables, bass guitar, found objects, self-built instruments, guitar, laptop, feedback, and a whole array of effects units to create interesting and dynamic improvisations.
Every performance is different and unpredictable.
