An all day festival collaboration between Bradford based promoters Endless Hum and Leeds’ Dirty Otter bring you a celebration of left field artists from around the country in one of Leeds’ finest venues; The Belgrave Music Hall.
Saturday July 15th
Container is the stripped-down, beat-oriented electronic project of Ren Schofield, who sculpts vicious punk sonics into raw jackhammer rhythms.
‘His crunchy beats, low-tech decay and fist-pumping zeal have struck a chord with an electronic dance music scene that is once again craving techno that is hard, heavy and elemental’ — Resident Advisor
Container combines elements from his background in noise and cassette collage music with a new found interest in repetitive beats to create this raw and damaged rhythmic sound that groove in the most relentless, hypnotic, unstoppable and psychedelic ways currently working the grid.
His 5 full lengths and 4 EP’s (for labels like Editions Mego offshoot Spectrum Spools, Alter, Morphine, and now Drone) have all boggled brains in every hemisphere and received highly favourable reviews in the process, cementing Container as a distinctive and disorderly force in modern electronic music. Having toured the world over with sessions for the likes of Boiler Rooms, this time he’ll be tearing off the roof of the Belgrave.
The Shits (Leeds)
“Terrible, terrible bastards The Shits are here with all the spiritually uplifting, life affirming, serotonin boosting properties of a dark amber, ammonia stinking, three-day rave piss, in the form of new transmission, You’re A Mess. Starting with a bludgeoning, left of centre, Amphetamine Reptile punk take on The Stooges that laughs in the face of more recent flat white-sipping, pantywaisted post rock and post hardcore innovations and instead concentrates on a caustic, clangorous, bone-cracking assault on all that is right and proper. But steady your nerve, delve into their metallic, acid stripped, pig-fuck grooves and you will find a chaotic world
of inverted psychedelia and jet black – fucking appalling – enlightenment waiting for you.” – John Doran / The Quietus
Check out the brilliantly bleak album out now on Rocket Recordings.
London based quartet Es have 3 albums under their collective belt on the likes of notable punk and experimental labels La Vida Es Un Mus and Upset The Rhythm. Their latest EP ‘Fantasy’ on UTR redirects previous goth-pop leanings in favour of a punchier synth driven post-punk vibe with a sprinkling of anarcho influence. Frankly one of the best bands we’ve seen in the last decade.
Remote Viewing (London)
Featuring members of Sly & The Family Drone and past extorts such as Palehorse, those familiar with the latter will know that RV are one of the heaviest bands in the UK today. Modern Addictions released on the very awesome London label Human Worth is a well tuned cacophony of glacially slow and threatening noise rock. Not for the faint hearted.
All Structures Align (Everywhere)
Tim and Adam Ineson’s past in 90s UK underground heroes Nub isn’t the only reason people latched onto ‘Details and Drawings’ so strongly. The songs on ASA’s debut LP unwind and develop at their own pace, delighting the listener and revealing themselves more and more with every play. Now teaming up with the legendary Neil Turpin (Bilge Pump / Objections) to help make the arrangements flex and pulse that little bit more, ASA return with a second album under their belts fresh on the ever awesome Wrong Speed Records (once again).
Street Grease (Brighton)
Dark industrial rock emerging from past notable acts JCQ, Torrid Horror and Meet Me In St Louis. Brighton’ Street Grease bring forth unrelenting noise rock with industrial undertones in the vein of early NIN and Ministry.
Coded Marking (Leeds)
Driving drum machine laden industrial EBM/Post-punk from Leeds in the vein of Skinny Puppy, Nation Unrest and PC World.
Care Home (Bradford)
Bradford based misery with noise rock and nowave leanings featuring ex-members of USA Nails, Whores Whores Whores & Red Stars Parade.
Belgrave has an excellent selection of streetfood options for meat-eaters and vegans alike. Check out their menu’s here.
Our very own member of Endless Hum – Tommy Davidson (also the man behind Prints of Thieves) will be live screenprinting posters for a limited time only and you can print your own copy too!
We’ll also have a small selection of retro consoles and games to chill out and take a much needed breather on. Seems soft not to include a time trial competition on Mario Kart? Maybe a prize or two as well.
