Sister Iodine Weds 28th Nottingham

Sister Iodine (France)

Founded in the early ‘90s, Sister Iodine spurt out savage gouts of fiery, primal guitar drizzle that could be taken as no wave, free rock, or JUST VERY FUCKIN LOUD depending on how you woke up this morning. They were invited to open Sonic Youth’s "Sentational Fix" exhibition last year which might give you some idea of the primal pounding you’re gonna get from them. New recorded bumpf out on such labels as Editions Mego and Premier Sang.

Eli Keszler (USA)

From Providence, USA. Keszler uses drums, along with crotales, bells, bowed metal, strings, and amplification to create a unique whirlwind of sound that balances sparse droning harmonics with intense, fast, free rhythms. He’s played with artists such as Jandek, Phill Niblock, Roscoe Mitchell and Loren Connors to mention a few. You ain’t likely to get a second chance to see this guy.

Usurper (Scotland)

Great, skronking wasteland jams from Edinburgh. They’ve worked with Dylan Nyoukis (Blood Stereo) which only hints at the gibbering insanity that you can expect from them.

Bitumen (Nottingham)

Weds 28th October

Gary War

I've been slightly obsessed with Gary War's LPs on SHDWPLY and Sacred Bones. Slurred, narcotic pop.I'd like to interview him for the next issue but maybe he's a recluse.
