What's been described as "a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe" is in fact the unique work of Justice Yeldham, a maverick musician with an unhealthy obsession with sheets of broken glass. In his infamous show that has astonished and bemused countless people in over 45 countries, yeldham ecstatically purses his lips against sheets of amplified glass whilst deftly employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries, turning discarded shards into crude musical instruments. The results are a wild array of cacophonous noise that is strangely controlled and oddly musical. The instruments simple, original and effective premise is a welcome respite to the over complicated musical performances of modern times. A one of a kind act re-defining the expression 'don't try this at home' this show quite simply needs to be witnessed to be fully appreciated, let alone understood. 


Phantom Chips’ homemade ‘lectronix squealin bent charm, harsh mangledtones thru half-broke gear for righteous 23rd century skree withinteractive bleep sea squids…Concocting rhythms from an array of homemade electronic instruments, samplers and wearable noisemakers Phantom Chips gets the making noise with her costumes. These deliberately clumsy tactile instruments create sound through movement and invite you to experiment with musical expression.


cassette player drones and kitchen sink psychedelia, sound ghosts hidden deep in the molten magnetic tapes.. always aiming for that mind-altering head trip.


Remedial sound poetry of the highest order. Fresh of a recent tour with trio Skatgobs with Phil Minton and Dylan Nyoukis.

Featuring members of Smart Pils, Subhumans, Zygote, Bad Influence and more besides, Cross Stitched Eyes are based across the United States, Germany and the UK, coming together sporadically to churn out their brand of dark, driving punk. Often compared to early Killing Joke and Rudimentary Peni, the band have released 2 LP's through the Alternative Tentacles label but now appear to be calling it a day. This will be one of their last European gigs.

From Seattle and featuring ex-members of noise-mongers Disrupt, Consume, State Of Fear and Decrepit , Deathraid blast out a furious punk assault akin to bands like Discard, Mob 47, Totalitar and Cimex. Fast, tight and Brutal!


Making waves due to their immense live performances and with a newly released 12" EP under their belts, No Form have had numerous comparisons thrown at them (Siege, GISM, Throbbing Gristle...) but no-one can really pin them down. Come check them out and make you're own comparisons! 


Gig starts at 8:30. £5 in.

Warm Digits / Nope / Los Pecadores at Recon Festival
Recon, Owlbot & Silent Snake Gang presents...
Warm Digits are a duo straddling the Newcastle-Manchester divide and making grade-A tone worshipping head-noddery full of metallic guitar buzz and addictively catchy synths. They describe themselves as 'krautophonic blizzard-wave', Weatherall describes them as 'machine funk kraut-a-delia'. I describe it as a marriage of metronomic precision and mind-exploding abandon that triggers all my joy receptors.

Dual-drummered Leeds/Bradford/Brighton outfit NOPE offer their own more visceral psych-grunge take on the krautrock experience, their tag team of sticksmen (including Hookworm JN) and a synth providing an hypnotic, propulsive backdrop to Andy 'That Fucking Tank' Abbott's measured riffing and cosmic bliss-outs. Always a treat to experience live.
Local thug-surf trio set out to dazzle and arouse with a jagged Dick Dale-meets-Man or Astro-Man?-meets-Slayer onslaught of dancefloor-oriented instrumental surf rock'n'roll blasted into hyperspeed. Imaginary soundtracks to films too violent to ever be made.
Tickets £7

The Olympia trio are finally playing the UK. Idiosyncratic and radical dream-punk, stirred up with grunge and psychedelia. Fans of Sister-era SONIC YOUTH or fellow Olympians GUN OUTFIT and MILK MUSIC should cancel all other social engagements (including funerals) and attend.

Local hardcore punks looking to get claustrophobic with like-minded humans. Ugly people playing uglier music. Also good for a food/cig break, so I'm told.

Sheffield snarling post-punk coming to crush. Fans of WIPERS, WIRE and OBSERVERS will all have a good time (maybe even a great time).

D.I. Records Present Cut Out Shapes

Facebook Event Pagecutoutshapesfinal


Returning to Wharf Chambers are headliners Cut Out Shapes.

This gig will act as a preview of new harder edged psych/rock/tech tracks to be recorded in 2016.

A rehearsal recording of the new track 'We March' can be found on the bands soundcloud here.

This gig will see drummer Conor Lawrence re-take the drum stool after returning from tours with 'Republica' throughout the UK and abroad. Conor's drumming features on six of the bands debut album tracks which can be found on Spotify here.

La Bete Blooms

Sounding like Mansun getting high on PIL's reefer smoke with post punk and Nirvana overtones.

Add into this an extremely tight rhythm section and duel flanger guitar attack and you have one of the most exciting bands to appear out of Hull in a very long time. 


The Program

Ambient instrumental band from Leeds Ex-Pale Saints, Chris Cooper & Graeme Naysmith create atmospheric instrumental soundscapes - Think postrock/surf shoegaze with hints of floyd, mogwai, early new order, cure, godspeedyoublackemperor, the doors, dick dale, eno, can, neu, explosions in the sky, etc., stuff that John Peel would play in the early hours of the morning kind of vibe.


Absent Parachute

Young up and coming Leeds band, think 'Boys don't cry' era Cure mixed with Beach Boy melodies and bounciness!

D.I. DJ's in between all bands with specially curated playlists.
