Acid Cat presents:
Repo-Man, Twisted Ankle and Radiators @ Rough Trade!
£5 (tickets available on headfirst)
Reshaping ‘rock groop’ sturm-und-clang into subnormal forms, son-of-Oldham vocal slurries, oozing Free sax splatter and shards of punishing guitar bliss. Repo Man have been delivering their distinct brew of electric anti-poetics since 2011, with their third album due for release this year - the first to feature drummer Jesse Webb (also of GNOD/ The Final Age/ Anthroproph). Members also ply their trades in Microdeform and Iceman Furniss Quartet. The band have supported the suitably clanging likes of Lydia Lunch, Enablers, USA NAILS and Housewives.
'Disorienting...wailing guitars, mentalist saxophone spouts and poetic lyricism delivered with enough aggression to give the Jesus Lizard a run for their money.' Louder Than War
“Seeing this lot live is like an aural fight scene of gyrating dynamics. On record they are just as infectious — a trickling banquet that roars off, milking the unpredictable swagger drooling from lead vocalist Bojak’s mouth, the burning kerosene of discontent. This is so high on the mind-stabbing riches — you’d be a fool to let it slip your clutches.” - Freq .
“ As a band they pull together to create an unbelievable amount of momentum, the occasional blast of frantic saxophone and a front man hollering poetry like an enraged cult leader. This is an act where faking it couldn’t be further from the truth”- Bristol Live Magazine
"Three piece noise-theatre-jazz-punk from Bristol and Cardiff. Energetic, theatric jazzy noise trio that takes not being very serious, very seriously. Ffo: Shellac, Monty Python, Mclusky, Harold Pinter, Frank Zappa, Dope Body and Primus."
Radiators are a five piece garage band based in Bristol UK.
Combining elements of punk, sleazy psychedelia and melodic pop hooks into a raw and energetic stew.
‘’Radiators filled the room with a concoction of garage-psych rock; their gritty and often spacey sound was reminiscent of Syd Arthur mixed with the gutsy punk of L.A Witch’’ Tap The Feed
