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
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 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

Club Geoff presents a new night of experimental alternative sounds with The Infinite Three (hypnotic psychedelic post-punk cosmic idiocy from ex-members of Cindytalk and GOD), Nasty Little Lonely (industrial post punk noisy stuff from Bristol) and Electric Elizabeth (investigative sounds from metal buckets, field recordings and beyond).

Our annual festival of contrasts and curveballs returns for it’s second year and once again, we have got a badass lineup for all of you to marvel over. Highlights from last year can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLJi3Eo6S8c
We can’t wait to do this again!
The Sweet Release of Death
Post-punk trio from Rotterdam. With a heavy and enjoyable dose of nihilism, doom and gloom
Death and the Penguin
London art-rockers. Sounds like Oscar Wilde might’ve if he was a band
Quitter (FKA Quitter)
Latest incarnation of Scottish lo-fi lounge lizard. He may or may not be joined by some pals as well.
Avant-folk sonic art from Brighton. She might (or might not) be performing work from her new project Taut
Birmingham hardcore lot bringing some much needed shambolic noise
Improvised grindcore from Apocalypse Jazz Unit mainman. For fans of getting drunk before midday
Jazz group based in London via Italy, Germany and Greece. A collaboration between Sylvia Schmidt (vocals), Fabrizio Brusca (gtr), Maria Chiara Argirò (keys) and Thodoris Ziarkas (bass)
Noise project from former Throats/Wren/Pack of Wolves Arkestra vocalist
Alt folk singer from Stirling. For fans of all of those jangly C86 bands.
Improv set between bassist Si Paton and percussionist Simon Gajewski. We don’t really know what we called the band this
They hold an evil monopoly on the free improv circuit

Becoming///Animal (members of Zu/This Mortal Coil/Cindytalk), The Brain Center at Whipple’s, Mark Dicker
Chaos Theory proudly presents Becoming /// Animal, a new project by amazing collaborative duo Massimo Pupillo of Zu, and Gordon Sharp of Cindytalk and This Mortal Coil.
Their first album “A Distant Hand Lifted”, an intense, filtered orchestra that roars and hisses, becoming one with magnificent haunting vocals, has just been released by Trost Records.
The Brain Center at Whipple’s, an experimental semi-improvisational trio who use noise and electronics shamelessly. Last seen by us when they DJed at Mouse On The Keys, Mutiny on the Bounty and Strobes at Rich Mix last year.
Mark Dicker of Bruxa Maria and Palehorse, performing his solo project, rife with heavy electronic sounds and audio experimentation.
