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

The Fighting Cocks finally presents unto you an evening of duos, couples and twosomes, if you will.
It seems less is more these days and we’re going to let these three bands prove it.
We excitedly welcome back SKiNNY MiLK from Brighton. These two fuzzy psychonauts have played for us on various occasions including last years NYE party. Since then they have played and blasted every watering hole and venue in the UK, including being the backing band for Castle Face Records’ Male Gaze on their UK and Euro tour last month. Be sure to have your ear plugs in deep and your mouth guards in. You’ve been warned.
Support comes from Kingstons finest, Model Citizens. Beating you down with desert rock vibes, uncompromising charm and good looks.
And doubly excited to introduce Southends partners in crime, Suspects. We don’t know how these two have managed to stay under the radar for so long… But we’re glad they finally surfaced. Get down early to witness their shear power of punk and grunge rock.

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.
