94 Parkway NW1 7AN London

Gig Description

Sheep on Drugs are a British techno/Industrial music group, formed by Duncan X (a.k.a. King Duncan) (vocals) and Lee Fraser (a.k.a. Dead Lee) (computers/guitars/keyboards/vocals) and currently composed of Fraser and Johnny Borden (vocals/keyboards). Originally classified as part of the rave movement, the duo emerged in the early 1990s with a string of singles, including “Motorbike,” “15 Minutes of Fame” and “Track X” (later covered by Grace Jones as “Sex Drive”). “15 Minutes of Fame” reached the lower reaches of the UK Singles Chart as did “From A To H And Back Again” 1919 formed in December 1980 in Bradford and set about recording heavy, melodic, intense dance music with no frills and pretensions. They were an early contributor to what became the Goth genre.” (Gods and Alchoves) 1919 had chart success with the singles “Caged”, “Repulsion” and “Cry Wolf”” as well as the 1984 LP “Machine”, and recorded two Peel Sessions. In 2014, founding guitarist Mark Tighe  reformed the band, recruiting Rio Goldhammer from the Leeds underground scene to perform vocals. The “‘Madness Continues’ Sessions” live-album quickly emerged, along with the self-released Death Note EP. Two European tours and a host of festival appearances later, 1919 signed a deal with Westworld Recordings in 2016 to release a new album, “Bloodline”, 35 years after their first. But it was to be no fairytale. In January 2017 Tighe lost a short battle with cancer, leaving a chasm at the heart of the band. Bloodline was released to critical acclaim in 2017, with Vive le Rock’s Pete Woods writing “Good goths come to those that wait” in an 8/10 review. Louderthanwar said “‘Bloodline’ will bewitch you“, and Sonic Seducer calling its “nightmarish-hypnotic gloom” a “fitting tribute” to Tighe’s legacy.  GULZ started as a one man bedroom project of a singer-songwriter/producer from Newcastle Upon Tyne, and has since evolved into an irresistible four-piece that can’t stop selling out shows across London and the North East. Proud residents of pirate studios in Camden, the band have spent the last year fine-tuning their sound. It’s loud, it’s pop and it’s sweeeet. From recording every instrument of his tracks in his bedroom to recording in live studios with some of London’s most exciting producers and sound engineers, Gulz and the band have come a long way. The boys have racked up regular spins from Amazing Radio, London’s ‘Hoxton’, ‘Shoreditch’ and ‘Soho’ radio as well as ‘BBC Introducing’.  Press features have seen the band begin to make a name for themselves with edits in ‘Vibez magazine’, ‘NEVolume Magazine’, ’Alternative Fix’, ‘IT’SALLINDIE’, ‘RockNBold’ and ‘Totally Wired Magazine’. DJ and Radio Presenter Charlie Ashcroft has featured GULZ’s tunes on his infamous ‘Fresh Finds’ Spotify Playlist, with GULZ’s latest release leading to a full interview on BBC Radio. With a string of shows lined up in London and beyond,  following a *sell-out-run-to-date*, the boys are confident they can give you a very good show. Expect chaos, laughter, major chords, plastic pint cups, and guitar-occupied boogieing . This is just the beginning.
