admission: 5 OTD
MIKE NEAVES (london)
You may have seen Mike blasting ears and shouting about Derby County in ultimate-party-band One Man Team Dance; or blasting ears in ultimate-morning-after-party-band Plurals; or blasting ears in ultimate-end-of-the-world-party-band Nitkowski; or blasting ears in ultimate-Trump-assassination-party-band Sly & The Family Drone. Trust us when we say he's got chops.

His latest foray in to ear-blasting finds him employing plenty of doofs in a hardware only minimal techno set. In the parlance of our times: it's fucking sick!


Gareth (also of considerable chops: Silent Front, Mayors of Miyazaki, USA Nails, Sly & The Family Drone) recently came down to one of our 'no-drums-because-it's-only-the-back-room-of-a-pub' nights at The Castle Tap.

His set of minimalist-ambient drones, crushing noise and found sounds descending into blissed out electronic pop hooks was a wonder to behold. We're very pleased to have him back!


I AM HOMOSAPIEN (reading, uk)
A blast from the past and a very warm welcome back to Matt Wells (formerly of To The Barricades and Val Killmer amongst many other projects).

Matt's I Am Homosapien played for us many times and in many different forms (guitar drone loops, electronic ambience, throat singing) before travelling and teaching throughout Asia; collecting a number of field recordings. Since his return he has been working on new material.
