Cleft reveal all

Friday, 7 June We are honoured to have three incredible bands joining us for this – Vasco Da Gama, Trojan Horse and Thumpermonkey. You can check them all out below.Tickets £3 – http://www.wegottickets.com/event/209934————————–——– 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 https://www.facebook.com/vascodagamalive Listen: http://vascodagamalive.bandcamp.com/ ————————–———- 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 https://www.facebook.com/trojanhorseuk Listen: http://trojanhorse.bandcamp.com/ ————————–——– THUMPERMONKEY (London) ————————–——– 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 https://www.facebook.com/pages/Thumpermonkey/18593072451 Listen: http://thumpermonkey.bandcamp.com/releases ———————— CLEFT (Manchester) ———————— Cleft make massive, dirty, instrumental music using a guitar and some drums.
