Årabrot @ The Star & Garter, Manchester, 15/10/2014

A Future Noise gig has sadly become a rare event these days, unlike in times of yore when there seemed to be one every couple of weeks, and tonight’s is as much a quality lineup as one would expect to see from Dave and co…

Manes ‘Be All End All’ CD/LP/DD 2014

21st October 2014 at 10:44 am

Manes

Eyeballs, limbs, shards of gold. The cover of Manes’ Be All End All is startlingly appropriate – depicting a chimeric assortment of human body parts and sharp objects, it offers a strong representation of the sonic landscape conjured by the Norwegian experimenters on their…

The Skull

The Skull broke on the scene a few months back with a two track appetizer (Sometime Yesterday Mourning/Last Judgment EP – review here) that threatened to simultaneously crush nut sacks, bash heads and flat out decimate the listening public, flaunting and commanding the kind…

19th October 2014 at 11:01 am

Old Man Lizard

Old Man Lizard are headed by the prodigiously talented Jack Newnham (he also drums for the outrageously good Meadows), who vocalises the lyrics and plays the six string guitar. The other two members are Gav Senior, who plucks away at the four string bass…

Fistula ‘Vermin Prolificus’ LP/DD 2014

19th October 2014 at 10:52 am

Fistula

Around since ’98, yet often overlooked in favour of the likes of Grief, Dystopia and Noothgrush, Ohio quartet Fistula churn out a sound that’s as ugly and hateful as the sludge genre can possibly get. However, rather than being a hidden “diamond in the…

Itchy-O ‘Burn The Navigator’ CD/LP/DD 2014

17th October 2014 at 11:35 am

Itchy-O

Itchy-O are a thirty-two piece (yes, you read that correctly; thirty-two) Denver-based, percussion-centred electronic marching-band. Their faces hidden behind black, luchador-like masks, oversized, LED covered sombreros on their heads, their uniforms prominently displaying the IOMB (Itchy-O Marching Band) heptagram insignia, these guerilla noise-makers are,…
