DESTRUCTION UNIT and NATE YOUNG shows this week!

Hey there!
I trust the Autumn is treating you fairly? We’ve got two opportunities to take a huge thick coat to a sweaty venue this week! Tomorrow we’re extremely excited to have DESTRUCTION UNIT playing for us at Old Blue Last, their brutalized, spaced punk finding company with noise wrangler PUCE MARY. Then on Saturday at Café OTO things get phantasmagoric with NATE YOUNG, GARY WAR and PURPLE PILGRIMS all weighing in with their future modes of weirding musick. Full blurbs below for the info gatherers. This last week we’ve also been busy lining up our new releases for GARY WAR / PURPLE PILGRIMS, WAY THROUGH and SILVER FOX, preorders up, plus you can hear some gems from the treasure trove and some future hits by DOG CHOCOLATE and RAVIOLI ME AWAY in this playlist we made for you discerning peoples.
Thanks for reading and/or listening!
Here’s the rest…

Old Blue Last, 38 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, EC2A 3ES
8pm | £6.00 | TICKETS

DESTRUCTION UNIT are a band from Arizona. Destruction Unit play loud rock music. Destruction Unit have recorded a long playing record. It is morphine boogie for the 21st century noise addict. A spiritual odyssey of sadomasochistic self-loathing with songs about love and freedom. The world is a sick place and Destruction Unit is it’s medicine. But you better act fast before its as illegal as the black market medicine these guys must have taken to make such a record. This line-up has released several cassettes on their own label Ascetic House, a small run LP, 'Void' on Jolly Dream and have an upcoming limited edition 7-inch on Suicide Squeeze Records. 'Deep Trip' is their first proper studio record, recorded by Ben Greenberg of The Men, Pygmy Shrews and Hubble, and Kyle Keays at Vacation Island in NYC, and mastered by Kris Lapke of Alberich and Josh Bonati, this is brooding American psychedelia, modern psych, debt and war psych. The future of Rock and Roll burning through three twin reverbs and a pound of grass, available now on Sacred Bones.
PUCE MARY is the solo moniker of Danish experimental musician Frederikke Hoffmeier. Through a still relatively short career she has released and performed her way to the be in the top of Scandinavia's current industrial music scene, with vinyl and tape releases on labels such as Second Sleep (IT), Posh Isolation (DK) and Nordisk Klub (DK), a flow of live shows throughout Scandinavia, and collaborators as Dan Johansson and Loke Rahbek. Her own work as Puce Mary is difficult to categorize, while definitely being Industrial music the sound pallet is wide and releases has presented work from clear drones to drum based rhythmic industrial and even nodding towards Power electronics at times.  
* Please note: due to an emergency health issue, Pharmakon will unfortunately not be able to play this show. We aim to rearrange a show for Pharmakon at the earliest possible opportunity.

NATE YOUNG is a founding member of seminal Detroit noise band Wolf Eyes. More recently been honing an equally distinctive solo sound that blends myriad sources from musique concrète, vintage film atmospherics, layered synths and archive library recordings into something thrillingly intense. Summoning up crushingly ominous crepuscular soundscapes and synth-washed phantasmagoria, Young undercuts the brutalism of Wolf Eyes with the kind of ambient dread that conjures images of lost horror soundtracks from the 70's. Minimal analogue synth violence is punctuated by thunder cracks of metal percussion ala the early Akita/Null Merzbow duets, massively doomy beat hypnotics and an atmosphere that's somewhere between the most apocalyptic Throbbing Gristle recordings, Coil's Musick To Play In The Dark, The Conet Project and your favourite Kraut kosmonaut. Young's most recent album 'Blinding Confusion' (out now on NNA Tapes) has the feel of a kind of post-synth electro-acoustic ritual, albeit tied-in with a visionary compositional aesthetic that is a couple of miles beyond your average weird-beard in a basement non-vibe.
GARY WAR has previously served alongside John Maus and Ariel Pink in Haunted Graffiti and also has a burgeoning catalogue of solo material released on Captured Tracks, Spectrum Spools and Knife Slits Water, and Sacred Bones. Gary War makes awesome zonked-out future music oozing with a disembodied soul and draped in heavy drones, unafraid to deploy feedback and thick waves of analogue fuzz for a luciously head-warping effect. War is touring in support of his new split LP on Upset The Rhythm which takes deeper step into a pool of progressive maximal wave and distinctly modern psychedelia.

PURPLE PILGRIMS are an outsider dream pop duo of sisters from Christchurch via Hong Kong. Clementine and Valentine Nixon make delicate, hypnotic vocals hover gently above spectral waves of guitar and exotic abstraction, as subtle beds of rhythm lock step in the distance. The Pilgrims have distilled the mysterious hybrid of shimmering distortion and je ne sais quoi that have long attracted global purveyors of the N.Z. underground into it's absolute purest form. As perfect a soundtrack to observe the latest night transform into the earliest morning as one could ever dream of hearing. Following on from their first lathe cut, Upset The Rhythm will be releasing a split LP with Gary War to coincide with their European tour.
GARY WAR and PURPLE PILGRIMS also begin their UK tour on Saturday with us at Café OTO so it seems like a good time to shout their tour dates from the rooftops here too!
