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.

Joe’s working on some flyers for the gigs right now, but just to give you some idea, here are the dates and bands confirmed so far:

July 27th: The Carpenters Arms, Rochester.

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/


August 3rd – The Nags Head, Rochester

Fish Tank alt math pop, getting a lot of interest from BBC Introducing right now. http://fishtank.bandcamp.com/
