The closing party to Capsule’s 10th birthday celebrations will see a gathering of some of Birmingham’s most exciting experimental live acts – paying tribute to the ten years of exciting, genre pushing music that Capsule have produced and provided a stage for. Modified Toy Orchestra are a collection of abandoned and reconstructed Childrens electronic toys, conducted by a selection of musicians to create electronic music in a league of its own. PCM, the dark lords of drum n bass have long been key figures in the Midlands underground dance scene and firm Capsule favourites.
Antelope was formed in Washington, DC in 2001, and have been released on Dischord Records. They play meditative, stripped-down punk music and feature ex members of El Guapo.
Fiercely intelligent, yet unashamedly reckless, the band possess an irrepressible addictive fury along with an abundance of technical aplomb. Rapidly garnering a sizable reputation for their infamous live performances, they are currently rampaging across the UK in a whirlwind of chaos, phlegm, and bare flesh.
The Plight is a hardcore based rock and roll band from Leeds, England who are well known for their Thin Lizzy meets Black Flag style. Recently signed to Visible Noise.
Cutting Pink With Knives
CPWK are as genre puddled as you like…electronic oriented punk with a spot of old-skool rave and a dash of grindcore.
PCM are Neil Harvey and Nik Wells and since their inception in 1990 have been mainstays of the Birmingham music scene, they deliver an uncompromisingly dark and aggressive take on drum and bass that is all their own, while still managing to instill a huge amount of dancefloor friendly breaks through the brutality of their music.
The Birmingham duo have been inspired by film soundtracks (particularly the work of John Carpenter) they meld rough electro beats and breaks with filmic strings and samples to great atmospheric effect.
Gloriously intense and euphoric yet challenging and confrontational with their music. They deliver layers of noise and intricate melodies but are not afraid to drone out and create slabs of sound.
Doom Patrol are 2 non-hardcore punk kids playing hardcore punk, without the bullshit or posing. basically fast, loud and fun.
+ artist duo Eagle & Feather show their Philip K Dick-inspired work ‘Kipple’.
There will also be a selection of cakes, and djs to satisfy your needs.
This event is happening as part of Gigbeth, for more information check:
