Due to uncertainty over issues with venues and noise abatement orders being issued all over Rochester, we haven’t been able to promote this gig as well as we’d have liked to. However, now that we’ve been told we’re ok, it’s all going ahead as usual at the Singapora Lounge on Sat 14th September.

Many of us have been heavily influenced by Sonic Youth in our music and we wanted to show our appreciation and just have a cool night where we all get together and play some covers with our own takes on them. So we got together with the amazing UpcDownc to organise a night where we do exactly that. Expect feedback, noise and a lot of singalong enjoyment.

Bands taking part include: Upcdownc, Kill RPNZL, Frau Pouch, Punching Swans, The Reactor Core is Splendid, Future Echoes and Pity Party,

Free entry, Singapora Lounge, Rochester, 8pm. All welcome.



Another night of free, amazing music at The Nags Head, Rochester.

Honey Ride Me a Goat
Sexy twaddlecore straight outta the garden of England.

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

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

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!

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/
