After the success of Homespun, we’re returning with some more noise from Medway’s own Punching Swans, who are releasing an album on Skingasm Records. The album launch gig will take place on Friday, August 22nd at the Billabong, Rochester.

Punching Swans have enjoyed recent airplay on BBC radio One, 6 Music (from Tom Ravenscroft, son of Peel!), XFM and BBC Kent Introducing, and been featured on Clash Music and Echoes and Dust. The album’s available to stream here:

You’ll be able to buy hard copies of the CD and beautiful limited edition tshirts at the gig. Entry’s a fiver.

Support comes from the unbelievable Shitwife, a breakbeat electro trash project from Wayne Adams of Ladyscraper and Henri Grimes of Shield Your Eyes. If you’re into experimental noise and AMAZING live drumming, you will love these guys. Think Squarepusher and Aphex Twin with a more approachable sense of humour.

Chris Dow of Wedding and Kind Eyes will be back with one of his side projects which promises to be impressive no matter what he’s doing. Plus, he looks like Thor….. always a bonus.

As usual, all welcome as long as you’re 18 and over and capable of respecting other people 🙂
