We've only gone and flown over the founder and lead singer of The Ex of 30 years, GW Sok, to London to play a show with Action Beat. Action Beat for the non SNH vets reading, consist of 3-6 guitarists and 2-4 drummers at any one time (see attached pic), maybe more. And they'll be fronted by a genuine punk legend. All takes place on the 9th August, at The Lexington in London, and some cheap advance tickets can be grabbed here.
The supporting cast ain't too shabby either, in fact any one of these bands could headline the night in their own right, hence we're pretty chuffed to have got them altogether in once place. See for yourself -
We love Trash Kit. Formed in early 2009, they've been lighting up London, energising the UK underground with their raw performances. Trash Kit have a sound of their very own, it's both urbane and primal, drawing on the potential of punk and the naturalism of an internal folk music.http://trashkitrules.blogspot.
Another band we've followed for ages and delighted to have playing for us, Silent Front bring their brand of stop/start razor sharp post hardcore to The Lexington. https://www.facebook.com/silen
Remember SNH faves Screaming Tea Party? Grimm Grimm is lead man Koichi's multi-instrumental dreamscapes for the dreamers.http://grimmgrimm.bandcamp.
WEM's music ranges from the brutal to the beautiful. The sound palate is dark and uncompromising: at times a pounding dirge, at others ambient, spacious and meditative. Listen to WEM if you like Nick Cave, Swans and Einstuerzende Neubauten.https://soundcloud.com/w_e_m
