Featuring

IDLES

IDLES appearing at this event

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.

Cate Le Bon

Cate Le Bon appearing at this event

Cate grew up in Cardiff's French quarter and made her name as part of Neon Neon but is at her best when solo. Equal parts Nico, Bobbie Gentry and her own emotional observations. “Imagine PJ Harvey’s rawness tangling with Super Furry Animals’ prog, and a vocalist who forgoes folk’s softer sides for delicious black humour… Here is darkness to relish” - Word Magazine.

Shopping

Shopping appearing at this event

Shopping are propulsive bass lines, primitive disco-not-disco drums and guitar lines sharp as broken glass. The band was formed in 2012 by members Rachel Aggs (guitar), Billy Easter (bass) and Andrew Milk (drums), who've all done time in a plethora of notable UK DIY bands including Trash Kit and Wet Dog. They pull from a well of 70's post-punk with a voraciousness seldom seen these days, bringing to mind the jagged aggression of Gang of Four, the voracious yelp of The Slits and the dance inducing thrust of Delta 5 .
