PROG IS NOT YOUR ENEMY
"An instrumental symphony of sinister ambience grandiose enough to render the compositions of Godspeed! You Black Emperor dwarfish in comparison" - ****, UNCUT
Behold Guapo! Destroyers of worlds, priests of fallen idols, bashers of gongs. Guapo is three - a trio of wandering nomads, born of a decaying planet that circles a blackened sun. Now a decade old in their present form, they have settled in London, where they spend years in isolation carving towering progressive rock monoliths called things like 'Black Oni' and 'Five Suns' that wake vikings from their two-thousand year slumber and stretch the lid of your third eye to tearing point. Previous appearances have seen them take to the stage alongside bands like Khanate, The Melvins, and Kid 606. Their latest disciple, however, is Mike Patton, former frontman of Faith No More and high priest of Ipecac Records: he has the honour of releasing their new disc, 'Black Oni', and it is honour indeed.
Experience the terrifying power of the Black Oni!
A snip at £5, wouldn't you say? Support on the night comes from Oxford's Sunnyvale Noise Sub-Element and Scarecrows - a promising-sounding new outfit from two members of Worcester's dearly-departed "camp-metal-violence" crew The Murder Of Rosa Luxemburg. Should be an opportunity to transcend the shackles of your mortal body/have a pleasant chat and a few drinks (delete as appropriate)...
