WRONG is set to return to the Liverpool Docklands on the 28th of April 2018 for its sophomore outing of visceral, vital and weird rock music from the Freakscene. For one day, a cornucopia of outsiders will descend to provide a feast for the senses.

Following the success of last year’s debut event, which saw the likes of Bo Ningen, The Wytches, Part Chimp and Heck unleash their aural savagery, it’s happening again. WRONG continues to tie together an extremely talented if sometimes overlooked pool of great, visceral and exciting bands, as well as bringing in high profile bands who are leaders and legends of the Freakscene.

The event will take place once again across the trifecta of the Invisible Wind Factory, the North Shore Troubadour and Drop the Dumbulls, playing host to over 30 bands from the early afternoon to the small hours of the morning. Organised by Liverpool based record label Loner Noise, the bill will contain a wealth of bands from every level of the scene.

Featuring

Future Of The Left

Future Of The Left appearing at this event

Future Of The Left are a rock band from Cardiff, Wales. They were formed in 2005 as part of a plea agreement following their involvement in an arms deal which left an actor playing Tony Blair dead, or at least pretending really well. They are made up of Andrew Falkous, Jack Egglestone and Julia Ruzicka.

Conan

Conan appearing at this event

Doom metal trio from Merseyside. Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. A three piece, in the grand tradition of many amazing fabulous three pieces that hold a tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised chord changes and tempo-shifts of the holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan. They bear it well, for the task is immense.

The St Pierre Snake Invasion

The St Pierre Snake Invasion appearing at this event

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".

Damo Suzuki

Damo Suzuki appearing at this event

Japanese musician Kenji Suzuki, better known as Damo Suzuki, is best known for his work with the pioneering German group Can. He is a vocalist and improvisational musician whose creative wanderlust has taken him around the world, performing with a dizzying variety of collaborators. Suzuki had little experience as a musical performer before joining Can in 1970, but his bold, theatrical style and abstract lyrical sensibility put its stamp on three of the group's most memorable albums (1971's Tago Mago, 1972's Ege Bamyasi, and 1973's Future Days) before he left the group in 1973. A After a decade away from music, Suzuki returned in 1983, shunning the recording studio in favor of improvised live performances, a number of which have been recorded and released, among them 2000's Seattle, 2002's P.R.O.M.I.S.E., and 2007's The Fire of Heaven at the End of the Universe. Working with established groups as well as 'sound carriers' he often has never met before walking on-stage, Suzuki's music in the 21st century has found him relentlessly exploring the boundaries of spontaneous creativity.

Mugstar

Mugstar appearing at this event

Mugstar recall 'Saucerful...' era Floyd and echoes vintage Neu! alongside the sounds of Oneida and Sonic Youth. Mugstar take the sonics of psychedelia and krautrock, drag it through the lenses of punk and post-rock, heavy as lead but driven to a repetitive extreme so that it becomes an impenetrable Krautrock hammer; much like Neu on a week long binge of testosterone. Playing Supersonic and ATP!

GNOD

GNOD appearing at this event

A Mancunian psychedelia collective drawing on influences as disparate as Afro-beat, krautrock, drone, noise and jazz. GNOD's music rotates and expands around a constantly changing line-up, summoning the freak 'n' roll of Ash Ra Tempel, the motorik beat of Neu! and the groove of early Can. Their release with White Hills, "Drop Out...II", was declared the best album to come out of Manchester in 2010.
