Chaos Theory presents three projects with completely unique takes on noise, industrial, post-punk and electronic sounds.
A trio who make ritualistic tribal noise using guitar, vocals, electronics and drums. They play to audiences and appeal to fans of metal, ambient, electronic and even prog.
Their latest single “Excavations” was inspired by the abandoned machinery of a now-defunct haematite mine. Dominated by fractured absorbing rhythms, being in the room with them is an absolutely exhilarating experience.
Check out the single out on Vacant Fulfilment.
“A powerful and concise statement.” – Avant Music News
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.
Her debut concept collaboration album, “La Pierre Soudée”, was released via German label ant-zen in 2015 and saw her collaborate with different electronic, industrial and noise producers, reflecting their styles and weaving her messages into their music.
“An emphatic but balanced parlando with dark industrial sound punches” – Peek-A-Boo-Magazine
An electronic producer who we’ve seen performing at experimental, post-rock, industrial, live soundtrack and IDM events.
His uncompromising attention to detail, with his audio and tactile sensitivity, has led to an already broad selection of lavish records. He has shared the stage with Jarboe, Father Murphy, Huron, thisquietarmy, Only Echoes Remain and end.user, has EPs out on Abstrakt Reflections and Section 27, and is one of the minds behind underground IDM promotion Towards Collapse.
Tonight he’s going to play an entirely new set, with all attendees receiving a free digital track that will be unavailable anywhere else.

COURTESY GROUP – Think Birthday Party meets Captain Beefheart and you won’t be far off. In town to launch their long awaited follow up to the acclaimed Tradesman’s Entrance album their second LP is entitled Second City Liquor and contains all the usual sonic bluster and acerbic wit you’ve come to expect.
“Here’s Hutchins, the howling faggot and pea-fuelled visionary, vindicated at last, and at his finest where precipitous and sluggardly guitars fabricate a kind of psychedelic drizzle, a dying sun glimpsed through an industrial smog.” Stewart Lee/ THE SUNDAY TIMES****
“Blue-collar Brummie Beefheart, mighty mangled tunes and riffage, great lyrics and attitude, a fine name: what more do you want from a group ?!” John Cooper Clarke.
THE DRIFT – Garage punk ensemble with a hint of Pixie-esque grit back on home turf to push their new CD of fiercely digested garage punk nuggets. Ex Deptford Beach Babes & Probing Cranks.
LOFE – Wholegrain and far from seeded and rising fast in the south yeast. Avant beats, elastic band bass and a lavish dollop of Quobble & speak. Ex Brain Of Morbius & One True Dog well and truly off the leash
