Cold In Berlin: London

Enigmatic front woman Maya is a vocal hurricane as she charges around the stage for Cold In Berlin. Not so quietly building a name for themselves with their live reputation and previous single ‘Destruction’ the anger and thrashing sexual tension they exude is a sight to behold, imagine a Blondie, Ramones, New York Dolls mash up. See them in a small venue whilst you can.

See their last Chamber Performance here:
And some more:

Vile Imbeciles: London

Needing little introduction as we’ve already had on Brighton Junk Funkers on twice, they have now expanded to a five piece and are working on their third album. New songs ‘Split Your Signature’ and ‘Rolling Ice Cream’ have a more laid back dementia to them. Come and see where they’re at.

Screaming Banshee Aircrew: London

We are honoured to be the last London show that Screaming Banshee will ever play and it’s a shame that the stadium sized alt rock never got to a wider audience. Rooted in the early 90s Goth/Industrial scene they merged these influences together with Bauhaus like edge. But its better to burn brightly and briefly than to fade away into anonymity. Come and see them off in style.

Live -

The Gaa Gaa’s: Brighton

Metallic post punk with hints of early Cure. Reverb drenched vocals and sexy sinister melodies. With the same grime and beauty as early Neils Children, claustrophobic and erratic.

"...there’s a menace here that imagines a studio scuffle between prime time ‘psyche’ era Killing Joke and the late 70’s recalcitrance of the Stranglers. Classily caustic." - Losing Today Magazine

‘Entertainment’ Video

Stavin’ Chains: London

Dirty and aggressive, the bass driven hooks judder menacingly around you with as much grace as a fumbling one night stand. Painful moans, sweaty melodies and explosive climaxes. This is EXACTLY the kind of this we like.

Screaming Banshee Aircrew Album launch!

Screaming Banshee Aircrew (album launch) + Luxury Stranger

Screaming Banshee Aircrew - exclusive launch show
for their new album "Sugar".

Friday 3rd July 2009
The Subculture, Wade Lane, Leeds.
Doors 7:30pm, first band onstage 8pm, clubnight from 10pm
£4adv which includes entry to Friday Flock* which follows!

Screaming Banshee Aircrew first played for us at the Subculture (or "Bassment" as it was then) six years ago, since then they've released three albums, various video and ep releases, and generally gone on to take the UK goth scene by storm. Originally from Yorkshire (where else?!), these legends now stand on the verge of world domination with the release of their fourth album... and we're incredibly chuffed that they've chosen Leeds to host the offical launch party!  Probably the most flamboyant live band in country, this is your opportunity to get "Sugar" before anyone else!

Support comes from Luxury Stranger, who draw on the darkness of post-punk, the theatre of 70s glam (Bowie/Eno/Reed/Pop) and the commerciality of 80s new wave, evoking both The Chameleons and The Cure along the way.

Online ticket sales:

* Friday Flock: Request-friendly DJs playing Goth, Industrial, 80s, Punk, New Wave and Phono-style dark alternative!

Photos of SBA at Cabaret Voltaire, 24th of November '07.

Not many good shots, I'm afraid... I need more microphone cables tangling him up to slow him down enough to get sharper photos. A greased weasel on speed would be easier to catch.

[rant]Better images, with cropping and better composition once I murder the camera shop to give me proper digital neg scans, instead of something made with a Fisher-Price "My first scanner"... [/rant]

t'was a very good gig indeed, much dancing, dodging of overenthusiastic slamdancers ( *cuddles delicate lenses* ), and silliness, as ever. I am mightily miffed to have missed Rome Burns... god, it was an early gig.

Come back sooner than 2 years, or I'll sulk...
