TRASH KIT are a gang of facepainted flag-bearers who have a wild feel for melody and a heartfelt kick inside each song. Mixing chaos, considered songcraft and overlapping harmonies in equal measure, the female trio sound as joyful as they are focussed. Rachel Aggs, Rachel Horwood and Ros Murray formed the band in early 2009, and since then have been lighting up London, energising the UK underground with their raw performances and promise. Trash Kit have a sound of their very own, it's both urbane and primal, drawing on the potential of punk and the naturalism of an internal folk music. Tonight celebrates the release of their much-anticipated, self-titled debut album on Upset The Rhythm.
WETDOG shake their coat and all manner of dirty pretty sounds fall out, demanding inspection. Exhuming and embracing the post-punk aesthetic of The Slits and Au Pairs, they're unlikely to make you ponder your navel and cry, but certs to get you smashing things up with wanton cathartic aggression. Splendid deadbeat drums, lumbering bass and wilfully mis-tuned guitars urge Rivka Gillieron's voice to yelp and admonish - early Banshees stylings are retooled until every sudden rhythm shift counts. Latest album 'Frauhaus!' is out now on Angular Records.
THE PHEROMOANS are five young men from the suburban hard shoulder that lies between London and Brighton. The quintet have a cavalier approach to their instruments. Everyone seems to get a go at everything, with an admirable disregard for whether they can play it very well or not. Somehow this approach translates into DIY shamble avant garage at its finest in the tradition of The Keggs, Swell Maps, & Danny And The Dressmakers. Catch their new single on Savoury Days out now and future LP on Convulsive coming soon.
