SLOWCOACHES 2

Tuesday 24th October

Slowcoaches + Monster Treasure + Tongue Trap

London-based punk-fuelled trio Slowcoaches have announced their biggest headline tour to date for October and November this year. Vocalist / Bassist Heather Perkins says of the shows: “This is the biggest headline tour we’ve done so far, so we’re excited to play some of our favourite venues and visit some new cities. It’ll be the first outing for a lot of new material too. We look forward to hanging out and making a lot of mess. Please note that all of our shows are safe spaces. This doesn’t mean don’t mosh. It means don’t be a dick.”

 

The band’s riotous live show has been known to cause grown men to headbang so vigourously they end up headbutting the monitors before projectile vomiting all over the stage. Expect the unexpected but know you’ll be in for a wild ride. Think the grubby grunge of Mudhoney and early punk of The Germs meeting 1970s LA icons The Nerves and the sassy stance of Babes In Toyland down a dark alley somewhere in east London and you’re halfway there.

 

Slowcoaches’ debut album ‘Nothing Gives’ was released at the tail end of last year via Leisure & District and, though it could easily soundtrack a fun time, the themes of the record detail all the bad stuff that happens in life: break-ups, breakdowns, a pre-mid life crisis, a drug induced mental illness, falling out with friends, getting way too wrecked, losing your job then desperately trying to find a job… the list goes on.

Crazy Town + LOKA + Monkey Puzzle

When the new millennium arrived the music industry was in the midst of a new music revolution. The free delivery via shared files online created a new “outlaw” brand, that would prove instrumental in the way music would be not just delivered but created. One of the breakout bands to not just embrace but help shift the tectonic plates of the music industry was Crazy Town. As one of the first hybrid brands, they brought a new ball into the game. Equal parts urban and suburban, Chevrolet and Bentley, they rolled onto the music scene with a slow build that erupted when a “Butterfly” entered the room. The two founding members, Seth Binzer and Bret Mazur were introduced to each other by Will I Am of the Black Eye Peas. Binzer brought in his longtime friend DJ AM and Crazytown was born.

The band was all the buzz in the industry, the talk of LA. Crazytown-mania created a classic Hollywood record label bidding war in which Columbia Records ultimately won. It was the Columbia/Sony worldwide reach which appealed the most to Crazytown and that reach had them touring the world and eventually garnered them a number 1 record in more than 15 countries, and selling more than 6 million copies of their first album, The Gift of Game. The success of their worldwide smash hit Butterfly in 2001 was inescapable and reached iconic status

Cassia / The Reason / Start Static

Scruff of the Neck & Fortune Promotions presents

Cassia

Combining a rich musicality with continent-spanning influences, Cassia have made their mark with their own brand of calypso-flavoured tropi-pop, resulting in a deft balance of the quintessentially British, and the unequivocally exotic. Macclesfield might not be the first place you think of when you hear the sun-soaked grooves of the three-piece, but that’s exactly where the trio hail from.

Despite their relatively short space of time together, the chemistry and musicality Cassia exhibit is nothing short of impressive, and as such has seen the trio already support a plethora of up and coming acts, including Lisbon and Girl Friend. Shows which have resulted in the band appearing at festivals such as The Great Escape and as well as Y-Not Festival for three years running; their first appearance going down so well they’re becoming festival favourites.

Having spent the past several months turnings heads in every city they stepped foot, 2017 has seen Cassia ramp up their live presence, hitting new cities and festivals; including a debut stint in mainland Europe which will see the band take on both Horeca Festiva and Bau Sommerfest with the same sense of enthusiasm and vigour that’s present in their music

It’s that vigour, this undeniable energy, that has led to continued support from the BBC Introducing network; the likes of Rob Adcock and Christian Carlisle championing tracks such as ‘100 Times Over’ to such an extent that the track was playlisted on Radio One. No mean feat for a band still relatively young.

Saturday 28th October

CSC Halloween Special | w/ Bad Breeding & More

Control Social Club presents:

A late night Halloween Special showcase featuring Bad Breeding. Support from some of the country’s best new wave artists.


Saturday 28th October @ Broadcast, Glasgow.

BAD BREEDING formed in the winter of 2013 in Stevenage – a commuter-belt town north of London. Drawn together by an enthusiasm for old anarcho and a complete disdain for the misrepresentation of Britain’s working- class identity, Bad Breeding is an attempt to call out the rank injustices and political distortion peddled to people existing on the fringes. Made up of friends who muddled together through state school, the band serves as an outlet from the monotony of labouring work and humiliating temp jobs.

The band say of the record, “Divide was put together a couple of months after the EU referendum and particular parts of the record sought to make sense of the confusion and misdirection that was so prevalent last summer. In some ways it’s an attempt to resist the impulse to collapse under the weight of perpetual distortion packaged by certain sections of the British media, but at times we simply found ourselves instinctively lashing out in bewilderment at what was unravelling around us: the division and derision of certain sections of society, the enablement of xenophobia and the continued manipulation of working-class identity by politicians and press organisations alike.

“There are obviously some overtly political points being discussed on the record, although last year presented moments of pretty difficult personal trauma for us too and there are a few songs on the record that try to deal with those things.”

Once again the relentless rhythm section drives the sound with guitar work that is squealing and immense alongside vocals that spit bile and razor-sharp lyrics. Standouts include “The More the Merrier” – which sounds like prime Icons of Filth from 1985 whilst last track “Endless Impossibility” is a five-minute-plus dirge that hits hard like Killing Joke but with more noise and chaos. On Divide, Bad Breeding have upped the intensity and made an even stronger album. Rather than being self-released, they have now joined La Vida Es un Mus in Europe and Iron Lung in the States.
