ARMY OF FLYING ROBOTS
One of the UK’s brightest underground grindcore/hardcore bands, expect lots of screaming over lots of blastbeats and very dirty guitar noise.

BEE STUNG LIPS
chaotic, drunken, loud, fast, punk rock music (think the jesus lizard, song of zarathustra, refused, and charles bukowski thrashed around in a blender).

room 2.
THE DIRTY CAKES
The Dirty Cakes are a fusion of influences ranging from pre-war Berlin
cabaret to jazz, swing and metal.

HOT RODDY (Wrong Music)
Chris Cook lived in Brighton, has been making electronic music of all kinds
for many years and operating under the names Remote and Hot Roddy, plays sitar along with his beats at every gig. In 2004, Cook also started to play gigs as Same Actor, using various stringed instruments building up
soundscapes on the fly using no pre recorded or pre sequenced material, but playing with alternative tuning systems and world rhythms.

BELA EMERSON (amazing set of cello and effects)
“Bela plays cello like you’ve never heard it played before, looping bowed
and plucked string rhythms through pedals, warping the sounds into spacey and industrial noise, beating out accompaniment on the body of her
instrument. A more captivating, physical performance you are not likely to
see.” Brighton Source, November 2006

Films include Legalize Murder (A True Black Metal Comedy) Directed by: Joseph Salerno & Nick Warden
http://www.designconfederacy.co.uk/trailers.htm

and PAPER RAD a Pittsburgh, PA/Northampton, MA collective that has
bubbled under the elastic waistline of the world’s slacks for over a
decade, tickling its privates and filling its diapers. This collective
first started churning out cortex hemorrhaging lysergia comics and
moved on to bands, videos, snack foods and installations. Past videos
for the band for bands have included LIGHTNING BOLT (on LIGHTNING
BOLT’s POWER OF SALAD LOAD 041) and the PICK A WINNER video compilation
(LOAD 050). Think of this group showing up to the 80’s dance party with
tazers and ketamine, and you waking up at the bottom of the ball tank
at CHUCK E. CHEESE. Not suitable for work, but definitely suitable for
family occasions!

MAP FOR DEMON CLUB
(JUST OFF Small Brook Queensway and The Bristol Rd, 5 mins away
from NEW STREET STATION)

A journey beyond sonic barriers into the
outer reaches of sound, the Demonlapdancing club is the launchpad
for the blast of decibels and decadencethat is “Sounds Of Excess”™.
Curated by Capsule,”Sounds Of Excess”™ bringstogether an army of
experimental musicians for this aggressive auditoryassault. Eugene
and Nico are the lynchpins of Oxbow the San Franciscoquartet who
combined musique concrete with free jazz and punk on albums
like”Fuck Fest” and “Balls In The Great Meat Grinder” and who count
Steve Albiniand Marianne Faithfull amongst their fans. With
Capricorns caustic riff mongers and post-punk group Noise Noise
Alore! who leave the current glut of Gang Of Four copyists hanging
by their own skinny ties. Ron Athey, one of the world’s most
acclaimed and infamous artists will be performing. As well as
Nicole Blackman’s Courtesan Tales billed as a one-person show
performed for an audience of one will also be amongst the Fierce
regulars lurking amongst the shadows at this eerie event. With a
film programme which will include Jim Van Bebbers ‘My Sweet Satan’
and a showing of the uncut classic ‘Zombie Flesh Eaters’ as well as
dj fun though out the night.

Oxbow – 
www.theoxbow.com
“The greatest art rock band in the world.” VICE Magazine

www.thevanishing.com

VANISHING is a duo from San Francisco who have recently relocated
to Berlin to mix electro-dancehall beats with live disco/marching
rhythms, synths, effected sax, and a mesmerizing voice. Their
surreal and improvisational stage show whose brutal honesty and
sensual grittiness has been hypnotizing crowds everywhere .
THEIR INTENTION: TO LEAD THE WORLD INTO A DANCING FRENZY!!!

www.c-a-p-r-i-c-o-r-n-s.com/

At last, an ensemble from the UK underground that is challenging,
Fresh & invigorating; emerging from the granite wastes of
London, England comes the towering behemoth known as Capricorns.
(Members of Iron Monkey/Orange Goblin/Fabric/ Bridge & Tunnel
)

Noise Noise Allore!
Take their  cues from such post punk luminaries as devo and
gang of four but add an urgency that is all their own, a world
where rhythmic time changes vie for attention with angular shards
of guitar and a vocalist that can barley contain the voice from
within his own body, a highly charged sexual rush of a show that
will leave you confused and wanting more..as all good lovers
do.

Crystal Wrists
A band born in a small town. A place that sits in the  shadow
of churches, industrial blocks and neon lit underpasses seems
only  fitting for a band resonate of a darker yet possibly
more vital era.
There is an infection that lies in their sound. A drama, a design,
an art,  an honesty and a performance. Referencing bands such
as Bauhaus or The Psychedelic Furs

Born into an extremely devout but dysfunctional Pentecostal
family in Connecticut 1961, the young Ron Athey was raised to be a
minister and feted as a gift from God by the congregation. But
whilst this religious upbringing set the course for Athey’s life it
certainly wasn’t in the direction his family intended. Living in
Los Angeles, Athey became a self-harming heroin addict until
finding a channel for the pain and confusion of his childhood in
performance art works which have consistently challenged and
trounced taboos such as HIV, incest and
suicide – becoming one of the world’s most acclaimed and infamous
artists in the process.
