Braw Gigs Presents:
Blitzkrieg noise rock and electronics from West Yorkshire with some
incredibly trebly guitar squeal blended in with grinding mini-drum chaos
- set to self-destruct mode. Pretty much everyone I've spoken to who’s
caught them live has sung non-stop praise for this Leeds duo, so I had
to nab em before they end up getting a fancy pants booking agent.
Armed with one very plugged and coveted Demo EP (an album is in the
making!) – they’ve been devastating eardrums down south and across
Europe this past year, with an especially blinding set at the Kraak
festival in Brussels, as well as countless hometown shows which read
like the stuff of legend. Think Harry Pussy (at their most primal) with a wee dash of Rita, Sue and Bob too.
Formally known as The Specimen and armed with a fandabydozey
self-released tape and some dope support slots for KK Null, Makoto
Kawabata, Sick Llama and Wolf Eyes over the last few years – expect
synth murk and DEEP analogue dearth from Grant Smith (Muscletusk) and
Graham Stewart (about a million bands). Sluggish/muddy electronics,
creeping out of the subs evoking nauseous and altered states, perhaps
the occasional brown note.
and high frequency duo of Dora Doll (ex- Decaer Pinga) and derby crash
queen, Rhian Thompson (CK Dexter Haven) who will be brandishing and
honing their specialist form of outer sounds from an array of found
objects and damaged electronics – if you caught them opening for Aaron
Dilloway last October, anticipate more harrowing shrillness from the
meanest ladies on the block.
