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

Police Bastard -The band have been influenced by many different sounds ranging from the likes of Discharge and Chaos UK to Amebix, Rudimentary Peni, Celtic Frost, Black Sabbath, The Cardiacs and Killing Joke. The band emerged from the ashes of some of Britain’s well known hardcore thrash bands: Doom, Sore Throat, Filthkick, English Dogs, Sensa Yuma and Contempt. Police Bastard started in 1994.
