The Fighting Cocks 18th Birthday Party w/ Henri Herbert, Love Me Tenders, Kit Trigg FREE ENTRY

Let us take you back to March 2000: We had just entered the new Millenium awaiting flying cars and hover boards, Bill Clinton was President of the USA and Blink 182s All The Small Things was kept off the Number 1 spot by Geri Halliwell. It was also the same year we opened the doors to you ‘orrible lot at The Fighting Cocks and so finally, the day has come… Our 18th year at The Fighting Cocks… so what better way to celebrate than with one of our good ol’ fashioned bottle breaking tear up!

We’ve smashed ourselves to get this little shindig together and we cant wait to celebrate this milestone with each and every one of you.

So whats on the agenda we hear you ask. Well…
Taking the stage we’ve got the one and only Henri Herbert And The Fury. The former Jim Jones Revue pianist has been busting pianos all over the world in recent years and we’re utterly honored to have him and his crew don our grubby little stage. Lets boogie woogie!

In support we welcome back the rock n roll drum and guitar duo The Love Me Tenders. They seem to be playing relentlessly recently and we’re stoked they’ve taken time out of their busy schedule to party with us.

And if that’s not enough… we also have BBC Music Introducing darlings KIT TRIGG to kick you into shape with some cool as all hell blues rock.–V8

Thirsty for more? Well, to keep you warm we’ll be throwing around some free shots from our sponsors Fireball UK Whisky!

The Facemelter: Luminous Bodies, Sky:Lark, Nasty Little Lonely

Chaos Theory presents a banger of a night rammed with rock, sludge, punk and general riffs.

Luminous Bodies

A collective that crams in heroes from Terminal Cheesecake, Part Chimp, Gum Takes Tooth, Apes Fight Back and Psychic Pussies into one double-drum psychedelic giant riff-slug.

Whether they’re playing with rock giants or DIY nights in sweaty basements, they’re always absolutely awesome to be in the room with. They’ve shared the stage with Wrekmeister Harmonies, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Oozing Wound, 11Paranoias, The Cosmic Dead, Mugstar, Kylver, Taman Shud and Casual Nun, and are a juggernaut which apparently will never let anything stop it.

Grab their self-titled album from Box Records now.

“One of a kind, with their chaotic energy often making it appear like they are about to come unstuck, before pulling it all together and sublimely emerging unscathed.” – The Quietus

“One of the most entertaining experiences there is.” – Echoes And Dust


A fusion of noise, grooves, distortion and reckless abandon. This London trio bring together funky basslines, saxophone blasts, sludgey riffs and raw punk riffs to create an animal that they say is all about exorcising bad feelings and sweating out the ill will.

With some quality releases already under their belt, including their brilliant 12″, released last year, they are now finishing up writing for their 5th and 6th releases, and might potentially record a split with Art Of Burning Water.

They’ve had three European tours and two UK tours, we discovered them when they played at BLEH!Fest and Cosmic Carnage, and played twice with Enablers on two separate tours.

Fans of punk, grind, noise and rock need to see these guys.

Nasty Little Lonely

Back at The Facemelter after almost three years! Since then, this mutant brainchild of bassist and vocalist Charlie Beddoes and guitarist Ben Fisher has been creating more grungey, post-punk industrial songs, as catchy as they are disturbing. When we saw them at Artrocker’s night lately, they’d become a sludgier, heavier version of their former selves. Which was awesome.

Currently joined by multi-instrumentalist Martin Grech Official on drums and samples (who’s collaborated with Jeff Buckley, TesseracT and yourcodenameis:milo), the band have furthered their reputation as a great live act and have supported The Wytches, God Damn, Bo Ningen, Lydia Lunch and Cold in Berlin.

Come on now.

“Immersed in the deluge of feedback and reverb and fuzz are hooks – good hooks – grooves and melody.” – Louder Than War Magazine
