“This is, by far, the most interesting album I’ve heard in years. In an age where everything seems to have been done before, where so many bands seem happy to tread over old ground, and where as a listener it sometimes feels a bit like you’re grateful to just find a band that at least treads over that old ground with new shoes, ‘Austerity Dogs’ is a kick aimed squarely and with extreme firmness up your musical arse.” – Norman Records reviewing the “Austerity Dogs” LP
Get a full blast of SLEAFORD MODS abuse through the Chameleon PA on this ‘Jolly Fucker’ 7” release gig -- next time it’ll be the Capital FM Arena (on stage… or selling hot dogs, the music industry is ruthless innit).
► THE LOWEST FORM
THE LOWEST FORM(ED in London 2010 under the sole premise of playing abrasive hardcore). They’ve only been spotted live in the wild on a handful shows and this is a prep gig for the 'Negative Ecstasy' LP which is about to drop on Iron Lung Records in February. Their aural assault can be described as ferocious Japanese hardcore embedded in monstrous UK thrash and noise, but bladibla - you should just check them out yourself: music reviews/descrips are totally 2013.
► GUILTY PARENTS
GUILTY PARENTS have been grafting energetic outbursts from way before Buzzfeed listed 15 reasons why it is ok to be punk in 2013. Nothing beats homegrown, defo not a blend of British post punk with American hardcore sensibilities. Bring frilly knickers, they’re beasts.
+ DJ CHRIS TRASH and DJ PACO spinning old punk, reggae and jungle.
