Russian/Greek Antifa solidarity benefit

We are hosting a night of international antifascist solidarity. The night will start with a talk by comrades from the Libertatia squat in Greece who’s building was burned down by fascists. They’ll give an overview of the rise of the far-right in Europe and efforts anarchists are doing to combat this.

Then the party begins.

We’ve got a hectic and frankly quite random lineup of bands for your musical enjoyment.

Inner Terrestrials
’24 years on the road and stronger than ever, London’s legendary Inner Terrestrials are a stomping mix of dub, punk, ska, folk and general anarchic danceability.’

Killdren
‘Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety, Killdren pen politically charged slapstick anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.’

Eskorputas
’3 piece girl punk band’ and winner of ‘minimalist band bio’ award 2018.

The Chain of Panic
‘Two parts Lithuanian, one part South African H/C THRASH PUNK.’

More acts TBC shortly.

Tickets will be £5 on the door (donations if unwaged/carer) and all money raised will be split between Libertatia and imprisoned Russian anti-fascists.

Russian anti-fascists under attack: Solidarity demo

On 19 January 2019 anti-fascists and anarchists from across the UK will hold a demonstration in solidarity with our Russian comrades who are being arrested, framed and tortured in a brutal wave of repression which has put eleven Russian anti-fascists behind bars, facing obviously fabricated charges which could see them jailed for five to twenty years each. Two of the detained are currently on hunger strike against their inhumane treatment.

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1954513344639049/

The repression began in autumn 2017 when six anti-fascists were arrested in Penza and had weapons and explosives planted on them. The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) tortured the anti-fascists in the pre-trial detention facility by electrocuting them, beating them and hanging them upside down. While torturing them, security chiefs forced the activists to memorise the testimony the FSB wanted them to give: that they were part of a fictional terrorist group called ‘The Network’.

Two more anti-fascists were arrested in St. Petersburg at the end of January 2018 and were also beaten, electrocuted and forced to incriminate themselves by saying they were members of ‘The Network’. A third person was accused in St. Petersburg and two more from Penza have also been arrested for supposed involvement in this make-believe organisation. The FSB claims that the detainees planned to arrange explosions during the presidential elections and the World Cup to “further destabilise the political situation in the country”.

After knowledge of the fabricated court cases and horrific torture became widespread, solidarity actions started to take place, but this led to more repression. Some Russian activists who took part were detained, electrocuted and had criminal proceedings started against them – just for expressing solidarity.

This repression of anti-fascists comes at a time when the Russian state are working with gangs of far-right thugs to repress the whole of civil society. One poignant example of this happened ten years ago, two Russian anti-fascists, journalist Anastasia Baburova and lawyer Stanislav Markelov, were murdered by fascists in broad daylight on 19 January. Every year, Russian anarchists and anti-fascists gather to remember them.

On Saturday 19 January 2019 we are calling for everybody opposed to racism, xenophobia, fascism and the upsurge of far-right populism sweeping the world to join us on the streets to express our solidarity with Russian anti-fascists. The demonstration will start at the Cable Street mural near Shadwell station, east London and will feature speakers and a rally.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell + Rites of Hadda + Spirit of the Age

Hastings grease-rock power trio THE ADMIRAL SIR CLOUDSLEY SHOVELL are coming back to London – and unlike a lot of cabbies they don’t mind going south of the river!
Hot on the heels of the release of their acclaimed third album ‘Keep it Greasy’, The Admiral are bringing their fuzz, riffs and pints of Watney’s Red Barrel to the AMERSHAM ARMS in NEW CROSS.
Expect head-shaking rhythms, riffs that’ll bury their way deep into your brain and the sort of genuine curly-lead, valve-amp, heads-down rock ‘n’ roll you’ve only read about in books! Support comes from SPIRIT OF THE AGE, who’ll be doing a full set of Hawkwind and Robert Calvert classics to get you into the right frame of mind, and RITES OF HADDA a new and emerging band whose sound has been described as ‘anarcho-pagan-gothic-stoner-punk’.
Doors are 7pm, and tickets are a mere £6 if you buy them ahead of time (£8 on the door).
Your nearest stations are NEW CROSS & NEW CROSS GATE. What else are you going to do with your Sunday evening? Watch The Antiques Roadshow? Forget that! Come on out and get ready to bang your head until your neck muscles beg for mercy.

Chaos Theory presents Warren Schoenbright, Riotmiloo, Metalogue

Chaos Theory presents three projects with completely unique takes on noise, industrial, post-punk and electronic sounds.

—————————–
Warren Schoenbright

A trio who make ritualistic tribal noise using guitar, vocals, electronics and drums. They play to audiences and appeal to fans of metal, ambient, electronic and even prog.

Their latest single “Excavations” was inspired by the abandoned machinery of a now-defunct haematite mine. Dominated by fractured absorbing rhythms, being in the room with them is an absolutely exhilarating experience.

Check out the single out on Vacant Fulfilment.

“A powerful and concise statement.” – Avant Music News

—————————–
Riotmiloo

An energetic live experience, Riotmiloo is the project of the singer of garage-punk-riotgrrrl project Venom Seeds. Encapsulating the vocals, screams and protest of women’s real life stories, her haunting and powerful vocals create a cathartic and hypnotic rhythm and noise experience.

Often found performing live with producer Eva|3, the integration of post-industrial bleakness with riotous punk fury is an experience to behold.

Her debut concept collaboration album, “La Pierre Soudée”, was released via German label ant-zen in 2015 and saw her collaborate with different electronic, industrial and noise producers, reflecting their styles and weaving her messages into their music.

“An emphatic but balanced parlando with dark industrial sound punches” – Peek-A-Boo-Magazine

—————————–
Metalogue

An electronic producer who we’ve seen performing at experimental, post-rock, industrial, live soundtrack and IDM events.

His uncompromising attention to detail, with his audio and tactile sensitivity, has led to an already broad selection of lavish records. He has shared the stage with Jarboe, Father Murphy, Huron, thisquietarmy, Only Echoes Remain and end.user, has EPs out on Abstrakt Reflections and Section 27, and is one of the minds behind underground IDM promotion Towards Collapse.

Tonight he’s going to play an entirely new set, with all attendees receiving a free digital track that will be unavailable anywhere else.
