Chaos Theory/Match& fuse present: The Display Team, Magnus Loom, Ms Mercy

Genre-fluid promoters of the weird and wacky Chaos Theory join forces with promoters of avant-garde jazz, prog and all manner of genre-colliding music Match&Fuse, to present a special lineup of audio oddities.

———————
The Display Team

Two years after Chaos Theory had the sheer giggly joy of working with this supergroup on their sold out album launch show.

Containing members of Nøught, Gong and Knifeworld, this prog-punk orchestra creates a heavy assault of surprisingly upbeat, melodic nonsense, resulting in something like a cross between The Specials and Mr Bungle.

“A beast with 24 limbs, and 6 brains fused into a sympathetic matrix of heady harmonies, ballistic brass, romping-stomping riffs and more “wonk” than a bad hedge.” – Sputnikmusic

———————
Magnus Loom

A heady mix of almost indefinable sounds, utilising heavy electronics, light-fingered instrumentation and falsetto vocals to result in a medley of experimental pop and punk. Of sorts.

“A cornucopia of brightly burning pitches and rhythms.” – Folk and Honey

———————
Ms Mercy (launch gig)

A new noise project of total chaos, rock, metal, noise, prog, punk and more, featuring members of WorldService Project. A brilliant FNM/SOAD/Bunglesque experience.

Ming City Rockers bring Riot & Ruination

An Alternative Gathering are pleased to present Immingham’s finest (and only) export – Ming City Rockers.

Ming City Rockers – “Ming City R*ckers are the best rock ‘n’ roll band ever to come out of Immingham” and he could well be right. There’s 4 of them, they like 3 chords, 2 they like better. Ming City R*ckers Riot Rock Ruination.

The Blue Carpet Band – Powerhouse five-piece dirty garage punk rock’n'rollers based in North London. Sounds like classic blues-rock proponents such as The Yardbirds and early Rolling Stones mixing it up with early New York punk, The Cramps and The Stooges.

Starsha Lee – “An inconvenient sound for inconvenient people”. Comprising the unique vocals of Sofia de Oliveira Martins and the distinctive dirty guitars of Crispin Gray. A dirty, scuzzy, wrong-in-a-good-way type of band.

Inglourious Thundercunts – Like a band of brothers with a sister, their filthy blend of punk and rock and roll has been disgusting and enthralling confused gig goers in equal measure.
