HAPPENING CLUBNIGHT - Saturday March 3rd
The Liverpudlians are in town for a rare show, promoting second album ‘It Ain’t Human’. On the blog we said “Excellence permeates all areas of this record. It’s a record dipped in The Magic Band but not to the point of parody. Other touchstones are surely Howlin’ Wolf, The Jim Jones Revue and Nick Cave’s early work with Boys Next Door/The Birthday Party.
THE HYPNOTIC EYE (above)
New London five-piece. “Sultry organ-led garage” - Rhys Webb, The Horrors. Think Shocking Blue meets Wimple Winch.
The debut show of four young men who are known for The Vinyl Stitches, Speak & The Spells & Organ Morgan. Expect rock’n’roll that takes in the likes of garage, psychedelia, krautrock & shoegaze and spits out nuggets of pleasure. Hypnotic, melodic - but hopefully not shambolic!
Then resident DJ Phil Istine and guest DJ Fritz (Buzzsaw Joint) will spin your world via ’60s/’70s dancefloor psychedelia, garage, beat, and general rock’n’roll wondermints!
