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

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!

UNSANE + BEESTUNG LIPS

...

 

Emerging from the same NYC rock underground that launched the careers of HELMET, JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION and SURGERY, NYC’s UNSANE are a legendary rock powerhouse. The trio’s distinct brand of cacophony has spearheaded the international noise rock movement and embodies uneasy listening at its most confrontational! UNSANE’s cold, ugly urban synthesis of screaming, distorted vocal howls, gargantuan bass, strangled guitar wranglings and regimented drum assault paved the way for countless others to follow.

Beestung Lips
Spewed up from the murky depths of Birmingham at some point in mid 2006, Bee Stung Lips is a four-headed hideous beast, with blood-shot eyes and tentacles stretching far back into the Midlands music scene.
Chewing on notes from The Jesus Lizard, Hot Snakes and Oxbow, and then spitting them back out, with additional nods to literary giants such as Charles Bukowski and John Fante, they create a provocative mixture of wilfully abrasive noise and viscera-shredding rock ?n? roll. Howling, anguished, and convulsive vocals tussle with rapid-fire drums, riotous guitar and blistering bass lines, before collapsing into a chaotic heap, breathless and foaming at the mouth.
Fiercely intelligent, yet unashamedly reckless, Bee Stung Lips possess an irrepressible addictive fury along with an abundance of technical aplomb. Rapidly garnering a sizeable reputation for their infamous live performances, they are currently rampaging across the UK in a whirlwind of chaos, phlegm, and bare flesh.
