Friday, May 9


A quick update on this mad fun from our friends at Forecast, this coming Monday (May 12) with a little help from us Lesson No.1 douchebags...

Shit & Shine make incredible rhythmic noise emanating from London but drawn from, well, lots of places. Have played with as many as 12 (that's t-w-e-l-v-e, old school vidiprinter fans) drummers in the past but this show will almost certainly be slightly less populated. Imagine an angry redneck version of the Boredoms with The Butthole Surfers’ sense of the absurd and you might be getting there. Features two members of awesome pigfuck rock combo TODD. Releases on Riot Season, Latitudes, Conspiracy and forthcoming product on the mighty Load. Skip the shit and get the shine at their brand spanking MySpace.

Geisha are performing their debut Cardiff show! It’s been too long. Bristol-based controlled eruption of guitar’n’rhythm’n’electronics noiserock mentalism with releases on Blood Red Sounds, Superfi and Crucial Blast, and a second album out soon! Fans of Unsane, My Bloody Valentine, Whitehouse, Burmese, queue the hell up. Before then, get listening.

You'll probably already know Gindrinker, the Cardiff-based duo for whom there’s always room. Debut 7” single out now on the Businessman label. Deformed skeleton guitar, black lung cornet, irregular heartbeat drum machine, St Vitus’ Dance stage movements, fevered delusion vocals. Yeeeah. Refresh your memory this way.

The super-quick closing blurb: downstairs @ Clwb Ifor Bach, Womanby Street, Cardiff; from 8pm; £7 in advance, £8.50 on the door (so get TICKETS if you can) - sorry, we didn't set the price!

By way of a post scriptum, we haven't had a lot of luck with Ex-Models and their related endeavours: our planned dates with both the band themselves and member-sharing Brooklynite dinosaurs Pterodactyl have gone nipples to the sky. The date of the Pterodactyl show is still going ahead, sans them, with Truckers Of Husk now headlining. More on that one, and an ace poster, soon...
