We’re teaming up with other promoters so that we can afford to use the few remaining venues left in Medway which will allow loud, amplified music with drums. This Saturday sees us collaborating with the Junk Depository to put on a gig featuring four local bands at the Billabong Club in Rochester.

HRMAG have occasionally been known to play shows and and record with cool stuff like:

Dysrhythmia, OXES, Upsilon Acrux, Noxagt, Qui, Weasel Walter, Hugh Hopper, Z’EV, Sonny Simmons Trio, Aufgehoben, a.P.A.t.T, Le Singe Blanc, That Fucking Tank, Bilge Pump, Nought, Yolk, Picore, Poino, Hot Club de Paris, DJ Scotch Egg, Ceephax & loads more

Praise for Udders:

“At various times, it brings to mind everyone from DNA to Don Caballero, Molecules to Beefheart, Melt-Banana to Elliott Sharp. Combining complex rhythmic interplay with noisy textural scrapes, the trio rocks in the most abstract way, and has a brilliant way of transitioning from high-speed squawk to melodic passages that can be pretty in an off-kilter way” DUSTED

Mount Fuji
Formerly Conquistadors until some cretin got all butthurt about them using ‘his’ name. This is great melodic math pop from Birmingham.

Musical Mathematics says this about them, and we agree.
“If you’re out of the loop, Mount Fuji (formally Conquistadors) are a four-piece band from Birmingham who play some of the most amazing fuzzy post-hardcore riffs you’ve ever heard…”

Toy Knives
https://www.facebook.com/toyknivesband

First gig from these guys, featuring the wonderfully creative mind of Ben Sammon and the beautiful hair of Aaron Ecoli. We stole this fromk their facebook page: “We chew batteries and drink bleach. A new band from medway made from old. We’re in the process of writing music so watch this space. We met through the mutual interest of staring at laptops and playing instruments.”
But yeah, if you liked Chairs Missing and Play Dead Proxy, you’ll probably enjoy Toy Knives.

Everyone welcome as long as they don’t behave like dicks. Image

Friday 7th December at the Singapora Lounge will feature sets from math rock behemoths Mayors of Miyazaki, whose new split ep can be found here: http://mayorsofmiyazaki.bandcamp.com/album/split-7-with-death-pedals

They’ll be supported by Kent band Houdini who make a most marvellous racket. Listen to them here: http://houdinisaur.bandcamp.com/

Greg from Houdini and Joe from Frau Pouch have formed a sexy little 3 piece called Punching Swans, and here’s what you’re in for with them: http://punchingswans.bandcamp.com/

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.

IIXII

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!
