The Facemelter: Zolle (Italy), Memory Of Elephants, Black Shape

Chaos Theory presents a night of incredible mathy punky jazzy noisey goodness in the August edition of their monthly night, brought to your ears from the recesses of Italy, Bristol and London

—————
Zolle

A manic, hard rock, math punk duo who create pristinely jarring beauty using copper drums and an aluminium guitar, and have just released their third album ‘Infesta’, recorded by Giulio Ragno Favero (Zu, Il Teatro degli Orrori, OvO, MoRkObOt, One Dimensional Man).

Sharing members with MoRkObOt, they’ve played alongside legends such as Obake, Zeus, Luminous Bodies, Casual Nun, Khünnt and Silent Front.

—————
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 absolutely killed it at The Facemelter last year and we can not wait to have them back!

—————
Black Shape

An awesome noise duo who have already kicked ass at The Windmill in Brixton. Born in the swamp three years ago, they’ve been trying to wade their way out ever since.

They’re recording a new EP with Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse Studio and will be launching it at The Facemelter!

Expect more scuzzy, sludgey noisey riffs.

Start: August 4, 2017 7:30 pm
End: August 4, 2017 11:00 pm

Alan Clayson And The Argonauts + The Bronsons

**Alan Clayson and the Argonauts** “were one of rock’s most glorious and enjoyable follies, and somewhere there is a parallel universe where they are bigger than The Beatles” (Rock ‘N’ Reel) and hold “a premier position on rock’s Lunatic Fringe” (Melody Maker).

In the late 1970s Clayson was being spoken of and written about in the same paragraphs as Wreckless Eric, John Otway, Tom Robinson and Elvis Costello, and featured in a BBC Radio One In Concert (which turned up on a 2001 bootleg CD).

Notoriety and cult glories aplenty but the Argonauts eventually succumbed to the treacherous seas of showbiz: no golden fleece. That was presumed to be that until a telephone call from out of the blue in summer 2005 from Damaged Goods records resulted in the release of “Sunset On A Legend”, a double-CD retrospective, and a reformation for a sensational farewell performance – which turned out to be the first of many. Here’s another not to be missed for fans of post-punking pre-punking outre outsider rock’n'roll.

Plus **The Bronsons** – pub rock and rhythm’n'booze revivalists in a Brinsley Scwartz via Ducks Deluxe sense, plus a bit of acidic Dr Feelgood punky boogie woogie oh yes. The Count Bishops and The Inmates are also reference points via a little counter cultural trippy blues. A great night out in themselves.

And **Eliphant** – psych pop , strains of late 60’s U.S. garage pop too, but this has that R’n'B fuelled slightly whimsical late 60’s brit feel, decently hooky and an authentic retro sound, fine work.

Start: June 23, 2017 7:15 pm
End: June 23, 2017 11:30 pm

The Jazz Market: MoRkObOt, Shitwife, Warren Schoenbright

Chaos Theory presents a night of heavy noise, math metal, avant-jazz, electronica, hardcore and all round incredible musicianship!

—————
MoRkObOt

A completely perplexing trio from Italy, who’ve been going for twelve years. Their insane manic sounds, coupled with supremely tight musicianship, makes sure that audiences are blasted with an experience unlike any other.

Their dual-bass low-end sound shakes off any notion of sterile technicality, yet they still manage to deliver a perfect sound of interlocking slides, slams and slippery beats.

Listen to their latest album ‘GoRgO’ and come to witness this tornado of malicious psychedelia.

“Somewhere in the vortex of molten bass and schizophrenic time-signatures there’s a solid groove at play.” – The Skinny

“An effervescent cocktail of metal heaviosity, befuddling complexity and giddy punk intensity.” – Echoes And Dust

—————
Sh*twife

One of the most technically proficient bands ever to grace the stink of London. With the immense electronic prowess of producer Wayne Adams (Bear Bites Horse Studio, Death Pedals) and the driving intricate beats of Henri Grimes, one of the best drummers we’ve ever witnessed, Sh*twife build up noisey hardcore sounds that are awesome to dance to and awesome to stand there slack-jawwed and watch.

We’ve followed them around DIY parties in London for ages, and can’t wait to hear more bangers by these understated audionuts.

“The reward here – and Sh*twife’s ultimate sell – is hearing rock instrumentation grind against synthetic noises in a sweaty, twisted duel.” – Resident Advisor

“A dark visceral sound that gathers together the rage of Atari Teenage Riot, and the ferocity of Motorhead all fed through a laptop stuck on the ‘Gabba’ setting.” – Louder Than War Magazine

—————
Warren Schoenbright

A three piece experimental noise band who’ve been skulking through London’s murky underbelly for several years.

The release of their fifth EP ‘Subtropical’, which is the band’s first on Hominid Sounds, charts a new, heavier and more dense sonic direction. The introduction of spoken word offers a non linear narrative to the textural strata created by electronic samples, bass guitar and live drums. ‘Subtropical’ beckons one into a dark, distorted, swarming nowhere place.

“A deeply textural live experience” – Ave Noctum

“A beautifully minimalist atmosphere through their use of delicate electronics that were punctuated with bursts of fury.” – UK Scumscene
