Gig #42: RED DONS / METHODIST CENTRE / GOOD THROB / THE SMEAR
STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL #42
From Portland, USA and with releases on Deranged, Dirtnap and Taken By Surprise records. Red Dons will be playing three UK shows when in town to record their next record and this is the only one south of Leeds. Featuring members of The Observers, Clorox Girls and Thee Spivs among others.
Queer Oi/Street punk from London with two drummers, this is going to be one of their last ever shows. Don't miss out.
"Good Throb’s initial public offering draws from all of their previous bands’ work (the Sceptres, the Shitty Limits, Tortura et al.) in the shadows of the Nixe’s Utreg punk, with a hint of "Swiss Punk Now", a bit of the Australian X’s burliness, but any desire for comparison is overwhelmed by a certain wall of sound and ferocity - on every instrument - that breeds a perfectly nasty sense of empathy. Empathy for a visceral breeze, for the methodical assassination of tedium, for the distilled detestation of our rosy society, and for Tesco anthems. Raw depictions of a mundane universe. (NG - Terminal Boredom)
First show from this new local band, featuring members of Tremors, Wake Up Dead and Vexed playing gloomy post punk along the lines of The Wipers.
Wednesday 27th March
