Machetes (CA)
The first London date for four piece all girl band from Toronto Machetes!
The integrity and glamour of Machetes comes out in both the music and their show- it’s the love child conceived by a massive orgy of music that includes Siouxsie Sioux, Love and Rockets, Iggy Pop and Black Sabbath- and that’s just for starters. Influences range from art-rock to brit-pop, punk/post-punk to glam, each member contributing equally to the overall look and sound. Playing weekly to overcrowded underground clubs and attracting a diverse crowd of dedicated followers, their shows are a delicate blend of mayhem, beauty and aggression driven by powerfully delivered songs.

Ed Blaney (ex-The Fall, Smith & Blaney) & Girl Peculiar
Ed Blaney, sonically diverse singer/songwriter from Salford. Apart from having been a part of one of the UK’s most respected and prolific unsigned bands, Trigger Happy, Blaney managed and performed with The Fall between 1999-2004 in what is regarded by many as the group’s renaissance period. Blaney has recently been performing hugely acclaimed low-key gigs with Mark E Smith and will perform here with protegee Girl Peculiar. This is a rare chance to catch one of the UK’s more elusive talents in action.

The Cellar Door Sound
In the shape of 20 year old Daniel Cross who, along with various collaborators, inhabit a world of their own; echoing the vocal intensity of Robert Smith, the musical simplicity of Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the lyrical honesty of Syd Barrett. Recent BBC London Calling artist of the week they have been described as “more black treacle than pop by numbers”.
