Opposing drummers ignite a dense, focussed rhythm engine to propel thunderous evolving acid synth and refracted vocal manipulations. Motorik astrally projected drive-trains thrust through haunted subterranean soundscapes into epic swathes of crushing synth riffing heavy enough to compete with any de-tuned guitar monster.

Bad Vibes and LANZAROTE team up to bring SLEEPY SUN over from San Francisco.

SLEEPY SUN

Over the years Sleepy Sun have developed a steady fan base with their unique style of psych-rock which is fused together by the dovetailed fuzz riffage of guitarists Matt Holliman and Evan Reiss, the blessed pipes of vocalist Bret Constantino that are alternately bristle with attitude and drowsy ease and the seamless collision of fluid science drawn up by the rhythm section of Brian Tice and Jack Allen.

Formed by Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen, the Vacant Lots takes as much inspiration from Bo Diddley and The Stooges as it does from Andy Warhol and Arthur Rimbaud and have developed their own sound, producing an immense, unrelenting, sonic assault with just two people that combines a minimalist aesthetic of rock n roll with hypnotic guitar riffs, Native American influenced drumming, electronic drones, poetry-driven lyrics and live visual projections.

Rapt Records and Teen Creeps are stoked to present you a night of garage rock extravaganza! Featuring a bunch of awesome international acts…

The Audacity (Fullerton, US)

“The Fullerton quartet Audacity could have been just another semi-anonymous pop-punk bunch, if only it had put a little less creativity into the music they play… Instead, the band attacks its rough-hewn but unshakably melodic songs from a variety of angles while always retaining its anarchic spirit.”

THE HOMOSEXUALS formed in 1978, from the ashes of The Rejects (who’d played with The Damned, Wire, Generation X, The Jam, Eater, 999, and Sham 69 on a number of occasions in 1976/77). The Rejects broke up after their gigs began to routinely descend into violence, lessening their appeal to venues and PA hire companies. Also, for frontman Bruno Wizard, the name “The Rejects” was too deeply embedded in what he regarded as “the new conformity of punk”.

So, the week at the office was hard? How could you sustain this injustice, this straining at those shackles concealing your true self; this cherished, wild temple of pleasure kept cruelly restrained in vicious bondage?

NATURAL CHILD

“Newspaper man can’t understand/ Try to talk about what kind of dude I am,” sing the co-frontmen of Natural Child, Seth Murray and Wes Traylor, on Hard in Heaven‘s opening track, “Laid, Paid, and Strange”. In my own defense as said “newspaper man”, it’s my job to talk about what kind of dudes they are, and I’d say they’re rock ‘n’ rollers who want some cash, sex, and weed (and I’d be right, as that first track freely admits to all of the above).
