The Courtesy Group Album Launch / The Drift / Lofe / Hemming Tong

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.

Dog of Man / Ham Legion / Crystal Piss

Dog of Man bring the sound of the filth stricken basement, fizzing electric accordion and angular guitar together in a glorious cacophony of bitcrushed, ambient and melodic acid-punk that will leave your jaw hanging beside your pasty white ankles. https://dogofman.bandcamp.com/

Ham Legion play a collision of beaming up beat power pop, with grinding grungy outbursts, dramatic changes of mood, tonnes of vocals, sudden passages of twistingly epic prog then moments of restrained delivery and somber reflection. https://ham-legion.bandcamp.com

Crystal Piss: Local band playing garage punk. Piss to the wall, fuck em all! https://crystalpiss.bandcamp.com/releases

Hemming Tong: Bromley contingent reject plays garage punk/punk rock/post punk/new wave on vinyl!

Hear Me Howl – gig theatre

Lights Down Productions present – HEAR ME HOWL, a one woman, rowdy as hell piece of gig-theatre like no other.

Jess is turning 30 and she’s just discovered punk. Some might say punk is dead, others would say she should really stick to the day job, but the resounding concern is: shouldn’t she be concentrating on settling down by now?
The play explores the characters journey via her discovery of punk music (& punk philosophy) and her story is told from behind and with the help of a drum kit and defiant, with drumsticks in hands, Jess lurches into an unknown future, one where she throws convention to the wind, and questions how much autonomy those with a womb really do have, here in the western world.

It promises to be a very punk, DIY performance, half gig/half spoken word, full rage! Through learning about punk Jess finds a way to express her anger at what society expects from her and she rages against the path her life is on.

We are at Landor Space, Clapham, South London 7th, 8th and 9th March at 7:30pm and 9th March at 2:30pm.

Tickets £10 full price, £8 concessions
