A delicious double-header on Saturday March 19th!
Featuring ferocious post-punk trio Girls in Synthesis and the gloriously loud Imperial Wax. The latter features three band members who were the last and longest-serving line-up The Fall ever had…
“Girls In Synthesis take dissonance to a whole new level. This isn’t River Island Rebellion. These songs are the real deal. Vive La Revolution!” – Under the Radar
Formed in late 2016, Girls In Synthesis‘ DIY attitude and caustic music has singled them out as one of the most intense and unique outfits in the UK. The band have built up a fevered fan base, with a reputation as an extraordinary live band; breaking down the musician/audience barrier by dragging equipment off the stage and playing large chunks of the shows from within the crowd. They soon became an in-demand support act for bands as disparate as Slaves, Bad Breeding, Wolf Alice, Damo Suzuki, Warmduscher and Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs.
Imperial Wax play a visceral, expressive fusion of garage rock and post-punk. Guitarist Pete Greenway, drummer Keiron Melling and bassist Dave Spurr, formerly known as the last and longest serving line up of The Fall, were invited by Damo Sazuki to join him as “Sound Carriers” for a one-off performance. Rekindling their necessity for music, they set about searching for a vocalist. After a chance encounter at a pub in Colne and a lengthy conversation about the future of Imperial Wax, they decided to team up with Sam Curran, guitarist and vocalist from Leeds based punk band Black Pudding.
“A musical equivalent of a bruise gained in a riot. Truly vital” – Louder Than War on Girls in Synthesis
“This is straight up, infectious, rock n’ roll filled with attitude and looking to get you to move” – Post Trash on Imperial Wax
