Black Seas
This elusive act is once again gracing London with their post-punk brutalism. Listen out for their darkwave throwbacks mashed with Samuel T Herring and Edwyn Collins’ lyrical love child – this is music your mum warned you about.

Kopper
Kopper are London’s newest post-punk absurdist insurgents. This three-piece are set on bringing something louder, fiercer and more anthemic to the streets of London, with the release of their debut EP “Fading Fires” – a rowdy and nightmarish opedius tale for all oddballs, rejects and provocateurs.

ZU (Carboniferous 10th anniversary), Nøught, Thumpermonkey

Brace yourselves for a night of mindbending noise, jazz, prog rock and psychedelia.

Zu have influenced thousands of musicians over the last two decades with their punchy, industrial approach to explosive noise rock. This tour celebrates ten years since the release of the sax, drums and bass trio’s most iconic album, Carboniferous, released via Ipecac Recordings on March 2009.

Nøught are a supergroup of world-class jazz musicians producing unpredictably wild avant-rock and ominous psychedelic ramblings. Rarely able to play or record together due to their commitments to so many other renowned projects, this will be the latest chance to hear what sounds we can expect from their first album in almost twenty years (whenever that’s ready!).

Thumpermonkey have been rising through the worlds of prog, art rock and post-rock, never sitting comfortably in any, but appealing to all with their unusually nuanced approach to songwriting. They received wide acclaim after the release of their EP Electricity and their latest album Make Me Young, etc., which you can buy now via Rockosmos. A transcendent experience.

Author & Punisher, Lingua Ignota, Riotmiloo

An incredible display of innovation from three artists from around the world.

Author & Punisher – Former mechanical engineer and sculptor Tristan Shone tours his latest album Beastland, out on Relapse Records, creating aggressive industrial, metal, drone and doom using his self-made machines.

Lingua Ignota – Musician, composer, artist and survivor are just a few words you can use to describe Kristin Hayter. Performing under the name Lingua Ignota, she creates a live show which has been unanimously described as an exorcism. Her mix of choral, black metal, industrial, classical and doom metal makes for an indescribable genera.

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.

ACCESSIBILITY:
- The venue is up three flights of 10-11 steps. The steps are shallow and wide, with a railing along the walls
- There are unisex toilets on the first floor, separated ones on the ground floor
- There is a full bar on the first floor
- Smoking area is outside on the ground floor only

Memory of Elephants – Noisy cacophony, spliced with intricately complex composition, spliced with soaring post-rock jams. Always an amazing time.

HAG – Riotous punk and stoner rock from the London trio.

Upcdownc – Krautrock meets heavy sludge. After their brilliant set at 9 Years Of Chaos, we couldn’t wait to get them back.
