'Welcome', the first release from Bristol acclaimed post-punk five-piece IDLES, launches at The Croft!
Idles are a heavy post-punk band from Bristol. They want to entertain and hurt in equal measure. They believe that art and violence work. Their spirit colour is coral pink. One of them loves queuing, one struggles counting, one has been arrested 8 times, one doesn't like music and one puts sausage rolls on his pizza!
'Idles are hard to capture, because they're not Fat White Family, they're not Sleaford Mods, they are very much their own incarnation of uncompromising rhythmical punk rock. Lyrically, a mixture of dry obsessional humour and poetic slogans. But, best of all, they really get the adrenaline pumping' - Steve Lamacq, BBC6 Music.
Idles tour dates
Bristol rock legends fronted by the superlungs of Sir Bobby Anderson.
Yes Rebels tour dates
Hysterical Injury are a sister / brother bass n drums duo coming on like Blondie with Jimmy Chamberlain or Karen O with John Stainer (Battles).
'It's extraordinary how two people can kick up a noise that big and that good with nothing but a bass guitar and a drum kit is beyond me' - Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music.
Hysterical Injury tour dates
5 Piece Band from Bristol combining strut, energy, sarcasm & filth to create a unique blend of Punk/Garage/Alt/Rock.
With live shows infamous for colourful language, bodily fluids and the ritual humiliation of audience members, BBC Introducing in Bristol have declared their set as "The most spectacularly committed performance I've seen in a long time".
The St Pierre Snake Invasion tour dates
A 3-piece band from Bristol, England, who pack a mighty fine Psychedelic/Garage punch. Signed to the excellent Howling Owl Records label, their debut single 'Lionheart' was produced by TJ Allan (Bat for Lashes, Roxy Music, Portishead).
GuMM tour dates
There is something about the muscular rhythms mixed with the new wave punk leanings of Frenetics that make them a formidable prospect. An almighty crash of charging guitars, powerful drums and swaggering hooks entwine with chaotic angular riffs and vocals that simmer with a twisted romanticism that recall enigmatic figures such as Peter Perrett, Tom Verlaine and Pete Shelley.
