Facebook event pagewimp

m a r t h a

Martha are a DIY, vegan, straight-edged, pop-punk band wielding an indie-pop sweetness. Their songs combine a mix of chunky guitar chords, bouncing rhythms and bass, all with a definite pop sensibility. Whether they’re singing about love, gender identity and sexuality or kids getting pissed up outside a cathedral, their songs are built on melodies and sing-a-long choruses. In short, Martha are one of the most thrilling and likeable bands to emerge from the North East in yonks.
Their album 'Courting Strong' made National Public Radio's top 50 albums of the year and they also won Steve Lamacq’s rebel playlist - whatever that is. They have also played these festivals: Out of Spite, About Time, Fortuna Pop and Indietracks.
One of very few bands that don’t sound shit on you tube – they’re that good folks.

MILKY WIMPSHAKE
As twee as they come, Milky Wimpshake have been playing witty, punk rock since 1993 with lyrics about everything from politics to everyday life at the office. Milky Wimpshake are smart, noisy, lacking in polish and seven years too late for the C86 boom for which much of their entire output is indebted to. The threesome creates batches of digestible, playful tunes led by jangly, often distorted guitar melodies. No song is over three minutes, most are less than two.
With songs titled Etymology; I love you, you weirdo, My heart beats faster than techno, Noam Chomsky versus The Ramones…you might get the picture.

The Seven Inches
The Seven Inches are as ridiculous a miracle of a band as anything else you’ll ever see. Intelligent, yet daft combining equal parts Jeffrey Lewis, Jonathan Richman, The Lovely Eggs and David Devant & His Spirit Wife, filtered through the best indie-pop of the past two decades. With elements of rock 'n' roll, glam, folk, college rock, Motown, MOR and grunge they write incredible songs about little things (e.g. underachieving, boating lakes…etc) winning hearts everywhere with their onstage props, trumpets, synths and cardboard keytars.

A short trawl through the internet should provide you with better descriptions of all the bands

80s disco by *Sparkling Entertainment* playing the electronic stuff from the 80s and other stuff from not the 80s. Basically, I'm going to line up some ace songs on itunes - most of which will be from the 80s and most of those will be electronic - and press play. Requests welcome - except of course those for Culture Club. I'd rather play U2 than fucking Culture Club.

Sun Apr 26 @19:00 - 11:00PM
Andi Sex Gang / Sex Gang Children & The Anxiety Of Love Live
 
Andi Sex Gang
Legendary, iconic, cult pioneer and post-punk innovator. Vocalist and founder of the now and then mythical Sex Gang Children, fine artist, performance artist, esteemed solo arttist and genuinely unique spoken word / cabaret performer, among other things.

Sex Gang Children
Along with Bauhaus, The Birthday Party, Virgin Prunes, and The Lemon Kittens, at the forefront of early 80's first generation art-house 'gothic' music. Erratic and sinister, ferocious and authentically dislocating audiences with off kilter song structures, stark lyrical content and taboo shattering imagery, Sex Gang Children have played sparsely since their initial mid 80's undisputed reign, however the occasional performances demonstrate no willingness to deliver anything less than their original frenzy, on the contrary moreso.

The Anxiety Of Love
Leeds based trio with drum machine, peddling a high wire brand of psycho drama, that sits raggedly somewhere up on the razor-wire between the sonic likes of The Birthday Party, Big Black, Cindytalk, and Suicide, and the inward mutilations of Cranes, early Cocteau Twins, His Name Is Alive, Faith era The Cure and Bark Psychosis. Live appearances are stark and difficult, yet compelling affairs often with the majority of the audience vacating the vicinity quickly.

£7/no-one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Just pay on the door, no advance tickets.
