Gig Description

Gary Clail Soundsystem – Tonight is the first of our last Friday in the month residencies with the legend that is Gary Clail. The Brizzle roofer turned magical, mercurial MC cum radical and righteous sound system manipulator is back and then some…his new album ‘Violence’ is the ‘End Of The Century Party’ for 2020, an absolute cracker of a record that will have dropped by the time you hit this unmissable event, a return to form right up there with his best On U Sound material. With fellow Bristolian legend brass and woodwind man Tony Wrafter (Tricky, Glaxo Babies, Maximum Joy etc) as his musical right hand man there’s a deep resonance at play with this fabulous new material, still hot on social comment but head warpingly good to dance to too. Gary will be MCing, live mixing, DJing and collaborating with other artists tonight and last Fridays in the DC for the next few months. Legpuppy – A perfect foil for Gary Clail. Electro with attitutde, OR “Beautifully formed one chord driven satirical punk” Yes, both these things can be true…with some wicked releases behind them already (the proclamatory punk thrum of ‘She’s Lost He Soul’, the sassy narco clubland tood of ‘Tears’….An ace band, proper entertainment with visuals and A BIG PERFORMANCE! As some wise cove said “Leg Puppy are the rising noise on the UK scene, and you better be ready to listen, because they have something to say.” Hercules II – Ypu’d maybe think it might be a Herculean task to get two drummers on stage in the DC but fear not, that most wonderful of artistic deviations as perfected by  The Fall, The Ants, The Glitterband or indeed Headbutt ,is in very safe hands with these infamous slab o’ noizecore merchants.  Here it’s all about the heaviosity, yes, but subtle interplay is there to enjoy too. A dual percussive, multi guitar triumph is assured  from these one chord, multiple inflection hypnorock sensations (including our very own Fuzz Duprey on razor sharp guitar). Oscar Mic – one man London centric hiphop stylist with some brilliant ideas and real earwormtastic tunes too. Suave of look and equally sophisticated in the rhymes and beats department. Wolf Club Lunar Society–  2 piece doing a Black Keys cum White Stripes type template, and the two of em brilliantly bash out ace razzle dazzle  invigorating blues punk. The London Sewage Company   – arrive nice and early (7.30pm) for Mark Barnet and Noel ‘Menace’ Martin‘s 10 legged London punk rock  ’70’s swingers, combining edgy swamp rock with the grooves of The Clash.
