Lesson No. 1 presents:
ORDEAL BY ROSES
Bar opens 5pm, bands from 7.30pm, DJs til 4am
FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT
Vile Creature - Self-described as “one guitar, one drumkit and two weird queer kids with lofty ambitions,” Vile Creature are loud and heavy as a landslide, slow and tortured like medieval history. The Hamilton, Ontario duo have become a revered name in 2018’s heavy music underground for their guttural, crawling take on sludge metal, their upfront radical politics and their DIY approach to their craft. First time in the UK, get ‘em while they’re hot! For fans of THOU, NOOTHGRUSH, MELVINS, MOLOCH etc. Visit the Vile Creature Bandcamp.
Bismuth - Nottingham bass/drums duo of Tanya Byrne and Joe Rawlings, in pursuit of the ultimate in OTT amplifier worship since 2012. They last played in Cardiff in 2015 and were so loud that music was later outlawed in the city, but we bribed the right people so they’re coming back! Their second album, ‘The Slow Dying Of The Great Barrier Reef’, is due out just before the tour; on the basis of recent releases (splits with GNAW THEIR TONGUES and LEGION OF ANDROMEDA) expect hideously beautiful sloth symphonies to make you bang your head and rattle your diaphragm. For fans of CORRUPTED, KHANATE, MONARCH etc. Visit the Bismuth Bandcamp page.
Ordeal By Roses - Cardiff-based solo project of Alexander Evans, of a similar nature to his previous incarnation BLOOD MEDALS but with new material and a different focus. Intense noise with harsh tones and contact mic palaver in the power electronics tradition, and a powerful and cathartic live show. For fans of PRURIENT, SATORI, KNIFEDOUTOFEXISTENCE etc. Visit the Ordeal By Roses Bandcamp page.
