November 7, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm£5
SHREDD ARE A GARAGE/FUZZ/POP BAND FROM GLASGOW.
DO NOT MISS THIS!
Thee Windom Earles
Trash. Sleaze. Exotica. Greasy like that hot dog that’s been under your chaise longue for several weeks, Thee Windom Earles are equal parts garage scuzz, rockabilly lunacy and fever-dream surf-a-go-go.
XUP is a band.
it’s pronounced zoop…
xup is Lane on vox n other noises – including: the mustang bass, telecaster gee-tar + the drums. We don’t need the telecaster when we play live.
Formerly of Nine Black Alps (erstwhile founder member) and bassist in legendary uber post-Sonic punks The Strap Ons, this journey has seen Xup move from London and back to Manchester. Xup is the kind of emotional, almost philosophical urban angst that drove punk rock to evolve and mature and capably manages to be quietly menacing. The urgent post-Siouxsie grit is mesmerising. The ever so slightly honeyed vocals sit on this barbed wired bed like it’s the most natural of things.
Sounds something like Joy Division making an art-house B movie starring Sonic Youth and Patti Smith…
Possessed of a predatory post punk prowl and gouged by a distractively dead eyed sparsely detached noir stained schlock. It aches and howls with a deeply penetrating psychosis that at times makes Siouxsie and the Banshees’ ’the scream’ sound like a sunny walk in the park… A torn and tortured beauty…
