RAMMEL CLUB #99 - Melting Hand, Bloody Head, Guest Machine, At Stuck on a Name. Saturday 4th May.
Psychedelic rock from members of Terminal Cheesecake, Luminous Bodies, Bong, Blown Out and more. "Pivoting between floating on a cloud of krautrock and being sucked into a psych-freakout, Melting Hand’s cosmic experiment is testament to the North-East’s somewhat under appreciated experimental scene".
"Reminding us of everything from Flipper, Black Flag, very early Melvins, The Birthday Party, The Jesus Lizard, Drunk In hell, Divorce etc. Their sound is truly feral, gruelling, damaged, alienated punk/noise rock." The slow, heavy slog of doom metal, darkly psychedelic guitar, and vocals/lyrics that don’t sound happy, to say the least. They’ve got some ace tortured riffs, proper gloopy pounding drums - as though the stickman were playing underwater alongside agitated, churning bass. Imagine your fave DC hardcore heroes reduced to a nasty opiated crawl. Unholy, repugnant, repellent, noxious and gloomy rock and roll at its finest. Cop the record, and if they play in your town, go see them, cuz they rule. These guys are the real deal." Norman Records
Guest Machine melds qualities of industrial, trance and ambient sound through the medium of live looped bass guitar and vocals.
