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

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!!!

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.

PLOT TO BLOW UP THE EIFFEL TOWER +NOISE NOISE ALLORE! seducedwomandead

PLOT TO BLOW UP THE EIFFEL TOWER
NOISE NOISE ALLORE!
seducedwomandead

The Plot to blow up the Eiffel Tower from San Diego California formed in 2001 with the distinct intention of branding their name on every kid’s lips. Their beginning stage as an inventive jazz-punk hybrid was strong and ever so cacophonous but was quickly abandoned for an all-smart version of punk; spit, attitude, and sexuality.

On the road with the likes of Q and not U, The Locust, and The Ex.

Their reputation for leaving people cheated or impregnated with obsession has now turned the world on it’s ears. For the Plot the payoff is big; “Love In The Fascist Brothel” has that magical quality that drives people on to the stage and into the sweaty dance pit every night

 

 

 

Noise Noise Alore!

Expect fruity fun.

kid commando + noise noise allore! + the arm

KID COMMANDO (sweden – tigerbeat6)
NOISE NOISE ALLORE
THE ARM

KID COMMANDO hammer out on short pieces of total-noise-punk-attack. They are Sweden’s most frantic noise kids and give an experience of intense chaotic rock’n’roll that sounds like ‘The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’ on acid. A lot of acid… Power Violence meets R&B

Two guitarists and one drummer, the members of Kid Commando seem to be in constant battle with the instruments they play. Every note a painful struggle. Every drum fill, next to impossible. Art damaged sandpaper rhythms cut jagged grooves into normalcy. They call it” new funk”. Kid Commando hail from Gothenburg, Sweden. This year they released “Holy Kid Commando” on Ache Records, an album chock full of awesome, churning, battle-scarred drone chords and propulsive drumming funking every song through from false start to chaotic finish. In 2002 Kid Commando toured the UK with the now-defunkt Arab on Radar (who went on to spawn the Chinese Stars). The band are currently working on an album for Kid606’s label, Tigerbeat6, to be released in April 2005.

Noise Noise Alore – members of Calvados Beam Trio, Deadsunrising and Solway Fifth show their fruitier side with an awesome yet somehow very wrong live show. Prepare yourselves for small pants and high socks.
     
The Arm…West Midlands based trio who merge awkward, mathcore riffs with melody and subtle electronica.
