SHIT AND SHINE

https://www.facebook.com/events/374964522705561/

 

A welcome return to Power Lunches from SHIT & SHINE
following the release of new LP '54-Synth-Brass 38 Metal Guitar 65 Cathedral'

You can stream it in full here =  http://thequietus.com/articles/17396-listen-shit-and-shine-album
"
The album maintains much of Clouse's unique, perverse humour that can be found throughout Shit & Shine's work, once again reinterpreting and, most importantly, laying waste to any solemn conventions held by some working within the parameters of electronic and rock music."

Wicked. 
More acts to be announce.
Tickets will be available on the door.

wimps getting hyped up on rock n' roll. breaking out the cold ones since 2010. 


Rat the Magnificent - 

https://www.facebook.com/ratthemagnificent

"Rat the Magnificent are a wine based power quartet from South London wine wine wine. A mix of obstinance and oblivion, this vox/geetar/geetar/bass/drum unit raised in Dorset have been blasting out for a year now."

Fickletwin -

https://fickletwin.bandcamp.com/track/psychic-hooch

A lazy man would describe this band as Derby's very own Pissed Jeans. Fickletwin could be considered Derby's very own Pissed Jeans.

Choice Apparel -

This duo has been thrown out of enough bands that they have managed to gather enough stolen riffs to get away with a gig. Amiga samples compete with 2 bass guitars on a shitty behringer mixer. They have no recorded evidence to prove this.

Static Shock Gig Vol #73

GOOD THROB
"In 2014, the best punk scene in the world is in London, England, and the best band out of that scene is Good Throb. KY Ellie and the gang rage through eleven of the most acerbic punk rock cuts to be conceived in modern time, brimming over with true-life vitriol and the means to carry it out. Imagine the murderous passion of The Feederz clenched in the fists of Kleenex with a scratched-up Erase Errata picture disc jammed in a Vomit Visions sleeve and you're close to Good Throb, although there is no way to hypothesize Good Throb without truly bearing witness. Following two stunning 7" EPs, Good Throb annihilate the LP format with more tunes about moronic men, systemic misery and the many ways in which they can both get fucked. Rather than be the one to say it, I'll go ahead and wait until you hear 'Fuck Off' and consequently pronounce it the album of the year."
CLOCKED OUT
Fast hardcore punk from Glasgow that has Cleveland written all over it. Their debut LP will be out in time for this tour. "I would say this band plays Clevo-style USHC. They've got the high-charge arrangements and riff-tastic songwriting that's characteristic of Nine Shocks Terror, with some moments of hard rocking and simple leading. I'm a sucker for this style, so a good genre exercise record like this is immediately appealing to me. If this band was coming out of NYC or Los Angeles, everybody would be losing their shit and proclaiming how it's the best thing like totes ever."
FRAU
"Punk band from London."
KICHAGI
First gig from this brand new London band.
