We’re teaming up with Manny’s Music for a Halloween party at the Singapora Lounge in Rochester. It’ll be our first night there, so we don’t know what to expect but we hope it’ll be very successful as it’s a wonderful venue. The gig itself will be in the intimate basement space which we feel will be just right for our nights. It reminds us of the first DIY nights we ever went to in Camden at the Constitution where Rip This Joint held their gig nights.

The line up is as follows:

Silent Front
London’s long-standing DIY stalwarts Silent Front have been hawking an abrasive blend of post-punk and hardcore for over a decade. The last 2 years has seen SF recruit a new drummer, release a split 7″ (with Shield Your Eyes) and a full length (Dead Lake), start a record label (Triplejump) and tour Europe and the UK extensively – playing the Camden Crawl and Moorfest as well as shows with the likes of The Hope Conspiracy, Black Elk, Pneu, Hey Colossus, Bilge Pump
and That Fucking Tank.

Debut medway gig from the creators of intense and creepy soundscapes.

Iron Frau
‘Supergroup’ formed from members of Iron Iron and Frau Pouch. Like the Melvins, but with tits.

Dressing up for Halloween will be heartily encouraged!

The Nag’s Head. Free entry as usual.

This night will have an alt electronica vibe with casios, loop pedals and vintage drum kits.

One Man Team Dance are a two piece from High Wycombe, whose energetic live show has earned them fans throughout the UK, USA and Europe. Their frantic drumming and insane casio keyboard hooks make for something special and unique indeed. Not to be missed! Go listen to them here: http://omtd.bandcamp.com/

Theo (Loops of Death) is a one man band from London and puts on an astonishing performance. His soundcloud bio says “Taut, chugging guitar loops layer up with frenetic tapping patterns that interweave in spiralling complexity before near sub-atomically precise, powerhouse drumming clatters and builds each song into juggernaut of riffs and rhythms. To achieve something like this recorded is one thing, but to see Theo perform live is quite another as each song blurs into the next and the dazzling guitar and drum acrobatics leave jaws sagging on the faces of all who bear witness to the talent on offer. ”

Having seen Theo play, I can say that’s a pretty accurate description!


Local support comes in the form of Ben Sammon’s alt electronica project Chairs Missing. Eclectically influenced, Ben’s tracks are an impressive mix of dubstep, seapunk, reggae and drum and bass.

Should be a great night!


100% pure dead brilliant.

July 27th: The Carpenters Arms, Rochester. Bands from 8pm. Free entry.

Mayors of Miyazaki – this is math rock at its finest. We had them over from their home town of Kingston last year and people were blown away by them. So, they’re back by popular demand! http://mayorsofmiyazaki.bandcamp.com/

Yokozuna – noisy alt punk in the vein of Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr, with extra distortion and frantic drumming. AND NYAN CAT BASS STRAP AWESOMENESS! These guys are so much fan, can’t wait to see them again. http://yokozuna.bandcamp.com/

Ragweed – filthy new wave post punk from Brighton. Lots of fun. http://ragweed.bandcamp.com/

and finally Frau Pouch, Medway’s shambolic sci-fi based purveyors of art punk. http://fraupouch.bandcamp.com/
