Cleft reveal all
Friday, 7 June
VASCO DA GAMA (Liverpool)
Time-twisting riffs, fantastic song writing and a band so tight you couldn’t fit a gnat in between them on stage.
“jerkily ace post-hardcore” – The Fly
TROJAN HORSE (Manchester)
Schizophrenic rock, prog and pop all rolled into one big sack of musical puppies.
“Taking genres and cutting them up with a musical talent that seems to be making them into a post punk prog enigma that has a flavour all of its own.” – Chris Hughes, Goldflakepaint
Thumpermonkey make heavy progressive music. They’re also amazing musicians and clearly know how to write a well-crafted song, just check out ‘When Scouts Go Bad’ from their Sleep Furiously album.
“…their often bewildering mastery of everything – King Crimson like angularity and dissonance, the blissful pop dynamics of the Cardiacs, and the esoteric post-hardcore audacity of Shudder to Think – amount to a sustained victory for intuitive cross-pollination…most importantly, Thumpermonkey’s music is ridiculously exciting; the blazing light of punk rock filtered skilfully through the cerebral prog prism…” – PROG MAGAZINE
Cleft make massive, dirty, instrumental music using a guitar and some drums. Imagine a machine that compresses 14 minute songs down to 3 minutes.
