Sunday Folk-Punk: Out of System Transfer (US) / QFolk / Chuck SJ

After touring extensively in the states, Out of System transfer is on their first European tour in April/May, with Qfolk joining for the UK leg

Carrying the banner of righteous weirdness, here comes Out of System Transfer, the city’s much-needed gonzo anti-folk punk rock radical leftist hootenanny. Their funny and fierce tunes blend the rage of Reagan-era punks like Dead Kennedys and Mojo Nixon with the rootsy feel and harmonies of acts like the Carter Family and Pete Seeger. With unparalleled energy, uncompromising radical politics, and an insatiable thirst for fun, these anarchofolk weirdos share one primary main objective: to rock your entire ass off.

Qfolk is possibly the loudest one human folk punk act. For fans of FEELINGS, radical politics, breaking the binary and a complete lack of subtlety. Passionate folk punk with more emotions than you could ever ask for! Aesthetic: Britney Spears meets Tom Waits.

Chuck SJ is a Queer Folk Punk DIY Musician hailing from Brighton, UK. Although their roots lie in folk punk, Chuck’s guitar playing extends far beyond the contemporary and expected style of an acoustic guitarist.

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

End: May 4, 2018 11:00 pm

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.
