September 29th – Kawabata Makoto’s Mainliner + Patent Saints + Dethscalator – £8 Advance: TICKETS

One of the most celebrated Japanese Underground bands have returned!

Joining original Mainliner members Kawabata Makoto (motorpsycho guitar) and Koji Shimura (drums) is new recruit Kawabe Taigen of Bo Ningen (bass/vocals) and the trio still kick up one hell of a sonic racket.

October 14th – Endless Boogie – £10 Advance: TICKETS

Formed by a bunch of record collectors and label employees, for 15 years New York’s Endless Boogie have been cranking out unabashedly old-timey, long-winded electric blues in a manner that’s part Canned Heat, part Can: classic rock boiled down to its fundamentals and looped into sublime, hypnotic infinity. On record it is a pleasure – beautifully played and recorded, as on this year’s Long Island – but live it is quite another thrill. In this small warehouse venue, with its searingly loud PA, it is hard to imagine many bands capable of making a more glorious noise.

October 17th – Wrekmeister Harmonies + Grumbling Fur – £8 Advance: TICKETS

JR Robinson has been writing and recording music as Wrekmeister Harmonies in various incarnations since 2006. Robinson began Wrekmeister Harmonies by recording sonic templates in museums in the US and Europe. These include recordings made at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the Gugenheim Museum and PS1 in New York, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, SF MOMA in San Francisco, the Pompidou Center in Paris and the Art Center Berlin as well as site recordings at Joshua Tree National Park in California and both the Golden Gate Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. The end result of that first incarnation of players and those recordings was dubbed Wrekmeister Harmonies: Recordings Made in Public Spaces and was released by Atavistic Records in 2009. This cd/dvd set received a top 10 honor that year from a journalist for the Village Voice’s esteemed Pazz & Jop polls for the year.

November 27th – Civil Civic – £7 Advance: TICKETS

Mixing jaggedly progressive post-punk guitar, jamming melodic fuzz bass and pummelling drum machine beats, delivered in a no-frills lo-fi-pop package , these Europe-based Australian instrumentalists have tapped their own original sound, emailing tracks back and forward, reconstructing and tweaking the others’ contributions, and minimising the possibility of rehearsal room punch-ups.
