At the Singapora Lounge. Free entry!


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:

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

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:

Coming up on Saturday 3rd November, 4 bands at the Nag’s Head, Rochester. Free entry.

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!

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!

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.

Ragweed – filthy new wave post punk from Brighton. Lots of fun.

and finally Frau Pouch, Medway’s shambolic sci-fi based purveyors of art punk.


August 3rd – The Nags Head, Rochester

Fish Tank alt math pop, getting a lot of interest from BBC Introducing right now.

Frau Pouchgarage art punk

These Guilty Men – a project by Simon Bunyan

The Baron Von Marlon – wonderfully noisy alt folk.
