Bands for Brazil charity gig
Joyzine presents a night of live music in aid of Medecins Sans Frontieres’ aid effort in Brazil following the devastating flash flooding and mudslides earlier this week, which left over a thousand dead and hundreds of thousands homeless.
Jan 28th… FIVE BANDS FOR A FIVER!
For more information check out www.joyzine.org, but here’s the lowdown on the line-up:
If.. – www.myspace.com/ifdotdotdottheband
…If… are a London-based band including former/current members of 586, The 18 Carat Love Affair and The Drowners. They make cut-and-paste neo-romo-po-mo-art-punk-glam-pop in the various veins of The Fall, Suede, One More Grain, The Yummy Fur and Josef K. But, like, with a girl singing. They hope you find them pleasing if not entirely categorisable.
Hold Kiss Kill – www.holdkisskill.com
Artful fuzz rock boy/girl four-piece (above pic)
“It looks like London may have given birth to the most impressive noise pop band since Glasgow did in ’83” Common People.
White Noise Sound – www.whitenoisesound.net
Swansea’s White Noise Sound conjure their own particular wall-of-sound – at once relentlessly pulsating and blissed-out.
“…a debut album of explosive proportions… awesome.” ***** Artrocker
“…opiated majesty…” **** The Independent
The Vatican Cellars – www.myspace.com/thevaticancellars
Hailing from London and Orange County The Vatican Cellars are principal songwriters Simon Hughes and The Birthday Girl, joined by Tom Adams and Russ Wainwright. They write songs about death, loss and guilt. They write songs late at night from the bottom of a bottle of wine, songs that are sung down the phone in the early hours, songs that bring to mind Nick Drake, The Lilac Time and Tindersticks.
Hinterlandt – www.hinterlandt.net
Raw energy, beautiful harmonies, complex rhythms, fragile ambiences, alarming noise, and silence from this German-Australian solo outfit.
Using a variety of instruments, Hinterlandt is not afraid of radically changing territory while carefully avoiding genre-hopping. Hinterlandt has taken on many guises and constantly changes shape and colour.
