Dog of Man / Ham Legion / Crystal Piss

Dog of Man bring the sound of the filth stricken basement, fizzing electric accordion and angular guitar together in a glorious cacophony of bitcrushed, ambient and melodic acid-punk that will leave your jaw hanging beside your pasty white ankles. https://dogofman.bandcamp.com/

Ham Legion play a collision of beaming up beat power pop, with grinding grungy outbursts, dramatic changes of mood, tonnes of vocals, sudden passages of twistingly epic prog then moments of restrained delivery and somber reflection. https://ham-legion.bandcamp.com

Crystal Piss: Local band playing garage punk. Piss to the wall, fuck em all! https://crystalpiss.bandcamp.com/releases

Hemming Tong: Bromley contingent reject plays garage punk/punk rock/post punk/new wave on vinyl!

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
Phone: 07794 450127

The Facemelter at NRS

This month, Chaos Theory’s long-running event is in a different venue for a change! And all for an immense display of jawdropping math rock glory.

——————-
Memory Of Elephants

A trio from Bristol who are insanely brilliant at making technically perfect math rock sound like noise and making noise rock sound like progressive perfection.

They blew us away at when playing with Zolle last year and with and at The Facemelter the year before. Come and wrap your noodles around this sound.

“A psychedelic, noisy twist on their math-rock sound.” – Atom Smasher Music

——————-
Codices

A band we saw playing with Lost In The Riots last year, and one who’s made a strong start to their career with their debut EP ‘Illuminations’.

Sitting between exciting and pacey math rock and instrumental post-rock, they’re a hit with fans of any type of rock music.

“Reaching back into a time when math-rock and post-rock were closer than they are now” – Echoes And Dust

——————-
A Werewolf!

A frantically awesome guitarist-drummer outfit playing what can only be described as a cacophonous mix of math rock and grindcore, with the party attitude of slam death metal.

Truly awesome stuff.

“Throws the listener around like a rag doll and is as majestic as it is uncomfortable.” – Louder Than War Magazine

Start: May 4, 2018 7:30 pm

Undercover Festival VI (2018)

Undercover Festival back at Margate for 2018

“See You Down The (Sea) Front”
Undercover Festival VI @ Dreamland Margate

13 & 14 April 2018

UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL VI a 2 day celebration of alternative music including Punk / Ska / Alt / Acoustic + so much more.

Undercover Festival is returning in 2018 to the unique setting of Dreamland Margate in Kent a venue and experience that defies all other conventions and festival templates. Not only do we have a cracking line up but festival goers can experience many retro rides and amusements plus it is once again held undercover i.e. not outdoors so if it’s peeing down come April it’s not a problem and your beer won’t get diluted. Leave your wellies at home, and enjoy one of the best small alternative festivals the South has to offer in APRIL 2018.

The 2 day line-up includes some cracking local bands and so much more over two stages is shaping up to be an unmissable event. We believe we have most bases covered.

The festival is one that prides itself on taking an independent and grassroots approach to things, and is always determined to be different from mainstream events, with two days of alternative action from bands you’d be highly unlikely to see on many other festival line-ups.
