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. Imagine a machine that compresses 14 minute songs down to 3 minutes. https://www.facebook.com/cleftband Listen: http://cleft.bandcamp.com/ ——————— TICKETS & TIMES ——————— Tickets £3 from We Got Tickets: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/209934.

Trojan Horse Album Launch...

As the poster suggests, we’re putting on the album launch show for Trojan Horse. Their album got like 8/10 from DiS et al, and three thumbs up from us here. If that weren’t enough, the venue is the achingly cool KRAAK gallery, and support comes from the frankly incredible Cyril Snear, Metamusic, and one of my favourite Manchester bands of the last couple of years, From the Kites of San Quentin. I mean seriously, this is going to be one HELL of a gig. The first person through the door will get like a free tee or something, and we’ll give posters and goodies to the first ten or so. So what would you expect to pay for such a show? Give up? That’ll be £3 in advance or £4 on the door, cheers. How good is this going to be?! –http://superstardestroyer.wordpress.com/ The Facebook event is here. Tickets are available from here. Listen...
