I feel like I can occassionly neglect spreading the word about gigs that I'm putting on in London outside of using the traditional methods of flyers / posters and the not so traditional method of using Facebook. To help combat this, I'm going to start announcing shows on here too. Here's what's coming up over the next week:
Static Shock Gig Vol #74
BAD NOIDS (USA)
From the town that brought you 9 Shocks Terror, H100s and Inmates, the new school of Cleveland Ohio hardcore punk is here with Bad Noids. Simple, anthemic, catchy punk rock for simple, anthemic, catchy people. Did I mention that their singer Oddjob lights his hair on fire while playing? Did I also mention that they have a harmonica solo that might be even better than Gorilla Biscuits? A lot of bands wish they were from Cleveland, others actually are. Up the gamma toaster punks. LP on Katorga Works.
THE LOWEST FORM
Coming from Glasgow, Hackney and Greenwich to guarantee bad come downs for everyone the following morning.
Two piece from Barcelona who are in town for the week! Members of Firmeza 10, Crimen De Estado and Origen continuing in the Hardcore Radikal tradition...
All power is dirty joke.
Friday May 8th
446 Kinglsand Road
London, E8 4AE

Static Shock Gig Vol #75
DAWN OF HUMANS
The return of New York's Dawn Of Humans! You probably remember them from Static Shock Weekend last year, now they are back on their first proper European tour. New LP will be out on Toxic State / LVEUM shortly! Members of Hank Wood and The Hammerheads, Crazy Spirit, Warthog and Perdition.
"True freaks in every sense of the word, Dawn Of Humans plays aggressively naive hardcore that sounds like it exists in an alternate universe. Nothing about it make sense."
