Cops and Robbers Presents:
Incorporating a diverse range of influences, from samba to no wave, this three-piece (now based between Manchester/London/Brussels) make a uniquely minimal sound, buoyed by poetic, urgent vocals. Each instrument brings its own voice, yet somehow the result is a brilliantly unified and understated sonic experience that demands your attention. A group that mesh politics and the avant-garde in with tribal percussion, and urgent, agitated vocals, their songs – all of which clock in around the two minute mark – owe as much to performance poetry as they do to post-punk.
Expect expansive and engrossing drone pop via the path of the unbreakable post-apocalyptic casio from these well travelled troubadours. The music of Olivier Demeaux (Cheveu) and Armelle Oberle (Badaboom) make together is not easily categorized, but the trancy synths and repeato drone rhythms sounded out with Nico-esque howls bring to mind the minimal industrialism of Flowers of Romance era Pil meet with the bodily humanity of Amon Düül II. Not to be missed.
Excellently weirded post hardcore/minimalist rock sounds with added hypno-keyboard thrum and violin pluck from these local big hitters.
DJ Snaffy and Wretchen
Kicking off the night will be a performance by these improvised analog euro dance queens.
