Chaos Theory/Match& fuse present: The Display Team, Magnus Loom, Ms Mercy

Genre-fluid promoters of the weird and wacky Chaos Theory join forces with promoters of avant-garde jazz, prog and all manner of genre-colliding music Match&Fuse, to present a special lineup of audio oddities.

The Display Team

Two years after Chaos Theory had the sheer giggly joy of working with this supergroup on their sold out album launch show.

Containing members of Nøught, Gong and Knifeworld, this prog-punk orchestra creates a heavy assault of surprisingly upbeat, melodic nonsense, resulting in something like a cross between The Specials and Mr Bungle.

“A beast with 24 limbs, and 6 brains fused into a sympathetic matrix of heady harmonies, ballistic brass, romping-stomping riffs and more “wonk” than a bad hedge.” – Sputnikmusic

Magnus Loom

A heady mix of almost indefinable sounds, utilising heavy electronics, light-fingered instrumentation and falsetto vocals to result in a medley of experimental pop and punk. Of sorts.

“A cornucopia of brightly burning pitches and rhythms.” – Folk and Honey

Ms Mercy (launch gig)

A new noise project of total chaos, rock, metal, noise, prog, punk and more, featuring members of WorldService Project. A brilliant FNM/SOAD/Bunglesque experience.

Start: May 11, 2018 7:30 pm
End: May 11, 2018 11:00 pm
Venue: New River Studios

Yur Mum, Dead Days, Katalina Kicks FREE ENTRY

The Fighting Cocks presents Power Trio Outsider Showcase!

Yur Mum
Londons Yur Mum have been smashing venues across the country with their high energy live shows since 2016 They’ve released several eps and 2018 saw the release of their debut album Road Rage: A jam packed raucous mash of grunge, punk and noise… Its been a while since they’ve played The Cocks, so we’re excited to have them back!

Dead Days are a UK based Alternative/Rock trio. Their electrifying approach to songwriting, combined with their unique live performance makes them an exciting new prospect for any music lover on the lookout for their new ‘favourite band’. After all, in music, just like in life, it’s important to discover new things and keep pushing forward and not keep living in the past because those days are dead.

Katalina Kicks was formed in 2010 in Shepherds Bush, West London. Fronted by Ian George, who belts out vocals while hammering his Jag; wild man and hard hitting drum maniac Jase Wilkinson provides a unique blend of Moon and Bonhamesque heavy-hitting stick-work, madness and power, alongside bass man Conor Cotterill, who brings finesse, swagger and a thunderous low-end punch to the proceedings.

The self-funded trio are the epitome of the DIY model. With a heyday pointing back to proper British 70s punk, fusing it with garage rock and grunge.
