▲ Victor Talking Machine
Hackney 4 piece Victor Talking Machine play slacker pop with an emphasis on the chorus, glorious fuzz and melody.
Single Launch Party for their 'Had Enough' EP, released 12th November on Silver Music.
"Refreshing British guitar pop" - Artrocker Magazine
"Songs that recall the grubbier, sunnier side of pre-britpop indie" - NME
▲ Methodist Centre
Homoerotic civil service street punk from London.
Methodist Centre's first two singles "I Sold Out To Management" and "How Safe Is Safe Sex" sold out in two days, and caused a storm at London's Underage club when the frank depiction of male genitalia in the artwork was brought to the attention of the management.
Since then the band has been assaulted by metal fans on psychedelics in Luton and run the gauntlet with Nazi skins who didn't listen to the words in Leicester!
Methodist Centre will be playing songs from their forthcoming new single at this show.
'Real, fun and brutal' - Artrocker Magazine
'Punking out in the most forceful of fashion' - P.i.X Magazine
▲ Joys Of Madness
Psychedelic experimental dream pop from Derby.
Cherrystones's manifesto is to get people to dance and have a good time.
With his distinctive ability to blend Italian film soundtracks, garage fuzz, krautrock and punk and translate them into a hip-hop context, Cherrystones is London's best-kept secret!
'Everything is done in the moment to create and capture a mood! For me genre is pointless - I like too many things! Music and sounds are as food to me I have specific favourites but do not wish to eat the same meal everyday - although I do have signature dishes.
I'd rather live in the moment than miss the chance looking for a future that is already happening and in motion - less is more, more or less - you follow?
Spirit & integrity combined are things that excite me - FEEL rather than felt.' - Cherrystones.
'Cherrystones is the real deal; intense, passionate and very funny' - Alan McGee.
▲ Gary The Tall
Gary The Tall has been promoting and DJing in London for years, spinning alongside Moon Duo at their Corsica Studios show and has most recently put out the great compilation Shattered Throbs Scattered Roars with Cherrystones. Together, they run the acclaimed bi-monthly night 'Restless Gesture' at The Alibi in Dalston.
Cherrystones says of their recent compilation album;
"Live mix by Cherrystones - programmed and mixed with segues and interludes using my brain and some of Garys records - the man has taste and skills. Ever heard him DJ? You should."
