Two of the GREATEST live bands around, back-to-back, in our noisy chamber of dreams…
GNOD and Hey Colossus are coming to Ramsgate on April 28th to drop jaws, blow minds and shake our spirits to the heavens. Miss this at your peril.
“Blindingly brilliant. That sense of being enclosed in sound – and vision – offered both a sense of release and incarceration” – The Quietus on GNOD
GNOD are a psychedelic noise-rock collective from Manchester, England. Since forming in 2006, the group has had an ever-shifting lineup of multi-instrumentalists and vocalists. Along with their roster, GNOD‘s music has constantly evolved and morphed, ranging from hallucinatory Krautrock-influenced folk to dubby, acid-drenched post-punk. Their music is far more aggressive and darker than most bands associated with the modern psychedelic rock scene, having as much in common with Public Image Ltd. or Swans as with Hawkwind or Guru Guru.
Hey Colossus are one of Europe’s great live bands. Since 2003, the six-piece has been driving around the continent with their “pirate ship” backline of broken amps and triple-guitar drang, elevating audiences in every type of venue imaginable; a doctor’s waiting room in Salford, an industrial unit in Liege and a vast field next to a river in Portugal. Wherever they may roam. Chinks of pop light shine through, but this is still raw, uncompromising stuff.
“A shot of dense energy I find it hard to describe as anything less than utterly magnificent” – Drowned in Sound on GNOD
“Are Hey Colossus! the best live guitar band in Britain right now? You’d be brave to argue otherwise” – Echoes and Dust
