The Facemelter: Space Witch (album launch), Prisa Mata, Sergeant Thunderhoof

Chaos Theory presents a night of soaring psychedelia and spleen-pulverising doom, as Space Witch launch their long-awaited album ‘Arcanum’.

—————————
Space Witch

The psychedelic doom wizards are back from Stoke-on-Trent with a brand new album!

Experience more cosmic journeys through the void, as Space Witch take you through waves of doom, psychedelia, sludge and prog rock, bringing new strings to their bow with their latest sounds from their new LP.

‘Arcanum’ will be out via HeviSike Records this year.

“Like taking a magic carpet ride through Hades while high on acid.” – CVLT Nation

“One of the band’s finest and suffocating compositions to date.” – The Sludgelord

—————————
Prisa Mata

A sledgehammer of noise, sludge, stoner rock and psych. We’ve felt the full force of this trio when we saw them supporting a bunch of legends from the Chaos Theory stage (GHOLD, Nøught and HAG) at Cosmic Carnage’s night at The Crypt, and have been hooked on their heavy grooves ever since.

“Groove, pounding drums and echoing screams in the vein of a Conan-tinged-Weedeater.” – More Fuzz

—————————
Sergeant Thunderhoof

Formed in late 2013, the Somerset-based riffmongers have played at countless gigs around the UK after their debut EP ‘Zigurat’ was really well received by fans of stoner rock and psychedelia all over.

Having played with Orange Goblin, Raging Speedhorn, Black Spiders, Elder, Gonga, Mos Generator, Desert Storm and many more, their infectious riffs, laced with psych and doom, have continues to capture the souls of all manner of rock fans.

Their excellent album ‘Ride The Hoof’ caught the attention of Metal Hammer and Terrorizer Magazines, and now they’re working on a follow up, due to be released later his year.

Worshiping Power: An Anarchist View of Early State Formation

Book launch of Peter Gelderloos’ new work Worshiping Power: An Anarchist View of Early State Formation.

This book provides a history of state formation in Asia, the Americas, Africa, and Europe, from Mesopotamia to the 20th century. Identifying different models or paths of state formation, Worshiping Power lays the groundwork for an anarchist theory of the origin of states, and in the process disputes common misconceptions stemming from liberal, Marxist, primitivist, and environmental determinist theories of state formation.

Rather than treating state formation as a singular event, a Pandora’s Box, Worshiping Power analyses state formation as a constant process, with religious, militaristic, economic, and kinship-based motors. It is also a work in grassroots scholarship, taking the study of the State out of academic institutions and into the streets, showing how a historically grounded understanding of the nature of the State is relevant to today’s struggles against patriarchy, environmental devastation, racism, war, and capitalism

There will be a talk by the author and Q&A session.

Peter Gelderloos is the author of many books including Learning From Ferguson (2015), The Failure of Nonviolence (2013),
Anarchy works (2010) and How Nonviolence Protects the State (2007)

Alan Clayson And The Argonauts + The Bronsons

**Alan Clayson and the Argonauts** “were one of rock’s most glorious and enjoyable follies, and somewhere there is a parallel universe where they are bigger than The Beatles” (Rock ‘N’ Reel) and hold “a premier position on rock’s Lunatic Fringe” (Melody Maker).

In the late 1970s Clayson was being spoken of and written about in the same paragraphs as Wreckless Eric, John Otway, Tom Robinson and Elvis Costello, and featured in a BBC Radio One In Concert (which turned up on a 2001 bootleg CD).

Notoriety and cult glories aplenty but the Argonauts eventually succumbed to the treacherous seas of showbiz: no golden fleece. That was presumed to be that until a telephone call from out of the blue in summer 2005 from Damaged Goods records resulted in the release of “Sunset On A Legend”, a double-CD retrospective, and a reformation for a sensational farewell performance – which turned out to be the first of many. Here’s another not to be missed for fans of post-punking pre-punking outre outsider rock’n'roll.

Plus **The Bronsons** – pub rock and rhythm’n'booze revivalists in a Brinsley Scwartz via Ducks Deluxe sense, plus a bit of acidic Dr Feelgood punky boogie woogie oh yes. The Count Bishops and The Inmates are also reference points via a little counter cultural trippy blues. A great night out in themselves.

And **Eliphant** – psych pop , strains of late 60’s U.S. garage pop too, but this has that R’n'B fuelled slightly whimsical late 60’s brit feel, decently hooky and an authentic retro sound, fine work.
