▲ Totem

Watch this and then come to our show. They will be amazing!

▲ Listing Ships

Listing Ships are a nautically-themed, instrumental quartet who skilfully blend their ferocious wall of sound guitar histrionics with Holy Fuck influenced electronica and jazz rhythms.

They cite inspirations from classic krautrock like Can, Harmonia and Neu!, sample-heavy intricate electronica like Boards Of Canada, Amon Tobic, plus expansive, exploratory guitar music like Tarentel, The Alps and Collections Of Colonies Of Bees.

"A heavyweight battle between bass and guitars. A battle so ferocious it'd leave Black Sabbath cowering in a corner with their fingers in their ears... Spellbindingly intense and uncompromisingly relentless."' - The 405

"Reminiscent of similarly relentless Factory Floor, Listing Ships are bursting with exciting ideas. Their seemingly unending and coruscating guitar lines and excellent drumming are the foundation of a superb set” – The Line of Best Fit

▲ Cineplexx

Cineplexx is the brainchild of Argentinian Sebastian Litmanovich, graphic artist and musician that lives now in London after some years in the sunny Barcelona and his musical influences include Velvet Underground, BMX Bandits, The Ronnettes, Beach Boys, Joe Meek, The Pastels, The Vaselines, Teenage Fanclub and Belle & Sebastian and Disco music!

Cineplexx will be debuting some new songs from his new album Perfume which is out now.

▲ Chips For The Poor

Chips For The Poor come from Estate.Death.Camp.London and are official endorsers of the Shergold Masquerader guitar and Keio Mini Pops Junior drum machine.

They are proper excellent and entertaining live!

"Drum machine-aided Fall-esque rambunctiousness" - Rough Trade Shops.

"The sound of two worlds colliding" - Marc Riley, BBC 6 Music.

"Their anti-fashion punk is so much fun" - Loud and Quiet Magazine.

▲ Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs

Perfectly channeling mid-70s NYC art punk in the back room of a scuzzed up East End pub, Charlie took the sounds of one blank generation and blasted them out to another. Only took a minute before we were sold.” Heavenly Recordings - Summer 2012.

We can't wait to hear them play some great records from their amazing collection.

Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs's debut album Clarietta was recorded by Edwyn Collins and Sebastian Lewsley and is out soon.

▲ Male Bonding

Kevin Hendrick, bassist and vocalist from Subpop signings Male Bonding will be bringing some of his favourite records all the way down from Dalston for us. Whatever he plays, it will definitely be very good!

▲ Elephant

Elephant are Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck: A conclusion that songwriting and documentation should only be accomplished by the turn of night, and should never leave comfort and safety of the bedroom.

Christian will be playing some of his favourite records at this show, hopefully with some French Hip Hop and 80s Disco thrown in along the way.

Elephant's new single Skyscraper is out now through Memphis Industries.

▲ Mat Flint (Deep Cut/Death In Vegas/Revolver)

Previously in Revolver and Death In Vegas, Mat Flint is now in the excellent Deep Cut who make 21st century psychedelic pop music. Mat was also a resident DJ at The Heavenly Jukebox and Heavenly Social and he'll be playing loads of great records from his brilliant collection at our first all dayer at the Lock Tavern. We can't wait!

▲ Ian and Sophia

Ian and Sophia are pals of ours. They will be playing some of their favourite records for your listening pleasure.
