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!

5ive + Ramesses + Mistress

...

5IVE
RAMESSES (ex electric Wizard)
MISTRESS

Ongoing travels through the far reaches of interstellar soundscapes At a velocity that rivals that of darkness creeping over the horizon, 5ive slowly but surely grips with its sonic mantras, hypnotizing audiophiles into trance-like states of aural ecstasy. Similar to a black hole in its colossal power, 5ive’s ability to suck in the consciousness of spectators into its realm of existence remains unrivaled by any other force in the universe.
Utilizing various vintage effects, guitars, tube amplifi-cation units, speaker cabinets and an early 20th century drum kit of monstrous proportions, 5ive are one of the few acts that actually live up to the definition of superlatives such as ³heavy² and “crushing” adjectives often tossed around carelessly by critics. Creating massive walls of analog energy that defy easy categorization, the duo have thus far managed to create the equivalent of a space shuttle pharmacy, composing mini-symphonies that hang in the atmos-phere, with effects similar to Ambien, Xanax, Valium and other synthetic sedatives. And while the layers of sound that crash and resonate are certainly enhanced by illicit chemical compounds, 5ive¹s hymns are a new type of drug, lulling the listener into a deeper spectrum of transcendence.

RAMESSES was born in England, February 2003. The seed of inspiration that gave birth to the band came from Mark Anthony Greening (who was incidentally named after the movie Cleopatra, that stars Elizabeth Taylor). Earlier during that bitter winter, he had parted ways with the band he’d drummed for since its creation, Electric Wizard, and wanted to continue to push his (now world famous) insanely creative drumming. Similarly, Tim Bagshaw, his long-time friend, had also left Electric Wizard, looking to leave behind what he saw as the boredom of the bass in favour of the guitar. Their departures shocked both the media and fans alike, who are still debating the reasons why…

 

 

 

Formed in Birmingham during 1999, MISTRESS have released two albums to date “Mistress” and “The Chronovisor” ‹ to rave reviews and have gigged with the likes of NAPALM DEATH, MAYHEM, ELECTRIC WIZARD, BOLT THROWER and EXTREME NOISE TERROR. Their hard-to-pin-down sound comes across as a sickening sludge/grind/doom hybrid, reminsicent of the early U.K. grind scene of the late ’80s and early ’90s, and has been described as
“a vile musical bastard, a bilious, screaming, snot-faced sludge orphan with all the taste and decorum of a sexual encounter in Wormwood Scrubbs.”

HOUSE OF GOD Residents::SIR REAL . PAUL DAMAGE . HARVEY LANE  . DJ X
Since 1993 HOG has paved the way for the UK underground club scene, creating its own sound and image, achieved by using local DJs as residents (a premise that HOG still stands by today), and playing the widest variety of hard edged music possible. HOG has consistently showcased techno artists, especially British DJs way before other clubs polluting the minds of Midlands youth with noise and sickness.

An envious musical run has seen RUPTURE taken in by raggamuffins, punk technoids, indy hipsters, junglists, peers, and austere critics alike. To many he is the new face of urban music…the potent sound of genre bending and overcrowded city life, a post-cultural broken mirror that mashes hiphop, techno, reggae, afro-cuban, spoken word, bohemian rhapsodies, folk music, the chanteuse, breakbeats, avant-garde noise, and jazz through the strainer of a DJ’s mentality.

 

 

OVE-NAXX is pioneering a delirious take on raggamuffin drum & bass and post-modern Nipponese pop. Catchy synth melodies buzz inside fast-moving thickets of percussion. Reggae and video-game music are an obvious influence, as are Japanese harmonic systems. The overall sound can be compared to artists such as Venetian Snares, DJ /Rupture, or Squarepusher, but Ove-Naxx’s superb production has a voice all its own. Meticulous sampling, nonstandard IDM flourishes, and psychedelic digital noise swell around uptempo reggae-flavored beats as funky as they are fractured. Ove-Naxx makes intricate pop songs and is unafraid to use distortion, speed, and mayhem as compositional tools.
