HOT SAUCE PONY »
Debut album widens the palate of aural exotica even further, all aided and abetted by the unmistakable sonic hallmarks of Steve Albini (Pixies, Nirvana, PJ Harvey), who recorded and engineered the whole thing at his now world-famous Electrical Audio studios in Chicago. Released by Brixton Hillbilly back in January.

Reference points are healthily myriad with reviewers pointing to the Lemmy-like clunk of Stephen Gilchrist's bass, the parallels between Anna Dodridge's metronomic rhythms and the finest moments of Can and Neu! The feedback-soaked guitar of Ross Davies, routed through a maze of effects pedals, would be equally at home on a classic Sub Pop or 4AD release, or the more rebellious end of the math rock spectrum. Caroline Gilchrist's vocals, meanwhile, are invariably delivered straight from the heart but always with an air of siren-like mystery and shapeshifting intensity that keeps you on a knife edge throughout.

Having cut their teeth on the same South London gig circuit that honed the skills of Shame, Goat Girl, Warmduscher and Black Midi, they've become a must see live act and the album captures and bottles that white hot excitement perfectly. ‘Crusher’, ‘Crumble’and ‘Doom Lord’ mercilessly toy with the listener’s emotions, switching from intimate vulnerability to riff heavy rampage without warning. From the lilting, almost folky melancholy of ‘Christmas in Prison’, to the jabbing sassiness of ‘Ho’ or the seas of sprawling distortion on ‘My Pet Hate In 6/8’ and ‘Louder’, this album has it all.

"Mudhoney with a whiff of Young Marble Giants"


The Hysterical Injury »
Melodic and energetic duo. with two EPs, One album, 3 Singles + remix B-sides all released by Crystal Fuzz Records. The name came from the idea that Victorian England may have referred to female genitalia as a hysterical injury. Their first album Dead Wolf Situation came out in 2012. It made albums of the year lists with, among others, Louder than War, God Is In the TV, Drunken Werewolf and Music Liberation.

“the noise of Sonic Youth and the power punches of Sleater-Kinney”

"Extraordinary - how two people can make a noise that big and that good is beyond me"

“...like Karen O rutting with The Primitives over a broken drum kit... Just brilliant”

"A great, rhythmically thrashing pop racket!" - Steve Lamacq


Art Trip and the Static Sound »
Imagine Hawkwind doing low-fi pop punk on a four day amphetamine bent 'bed in' with Stereolab whilst Goat provide tripped-out, oil lamp visuals!..

New single Iron Lung on Fiasco Recordings is an absolute blast - Comes from the forthcoming long player 'A Week Of Kindness'. which you should buy at this gig - Cosmic awesomeness with a fist and some spit!
