Headline Maniac is the new band formed by members of Eddie and the Hotrods. The band released their self titled album in summer of 2016 to widespread acclaim from the music press. Many rock radio stations made it their album of the week. Festival appearances in both the UK and Europe followed in 2017 and a release of the bands first live album.
Some would say that these boys have already been there and done it having toured the world playing some of the biggest festivals and arenas with Eddie and the Hotrods, but Headline Maniac are new, bold and brash, if you like your rock music with a injection of punk attitude then check them out.

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

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

Club Geoff presents a new night of experimental alternative sounds with The Infinite Three (hypnotic psychedelic post-punk cosmic idiocy from ex-members of Cindytalk and GOD), Nasty Little Lonely (industrial post punk noisy stuff from Bristol) and Electric Elizabeth (investigative sounds from metal buckets, field recordings and beyond).
