Let Them Eat Gak
The first in a brand new series of Let Them Eat Gak free gigs at the Rhythm Factory !
With the smell of strip clubs and cheap perfume clogging his nostrils, and the sound of dancing girls and law suits ringing in his ears, Berlusconi returns to Whitechapel. Built upon foundations of Surf rock, rock'n'roll, post hardcore and of course, bunga bunga, it's a refreshingly challenging and somewhat unhinged, Fall-like, in-yer-face, off-the-stage clatter to the senses...
'The Sisters of the Daughters of the Mothers of Invention' - Rolf Harris look-a-like at Tigers gig June 2011
"you look like, in the nicest kind of way, you don't give a fuck" - observer in Brighton April 2011
"i don't remember it that well. i just remember a lot of nudity and a hospitalisation and finding what I heard of your band very interesting. but i couldn't remember what you were called .... so now i'm listening to your stuff. very wierd and cool. it sort of makes me think what would it be like if amanda palmer took acid and joined a grunge band... ... and the answer is anarchistwood"

THE FILTHY ORPHANS
Existing on-and-off since late 2006, The Filthy Orphans have continuously morphed their sound from scrappy noisy anarcho squat punk to punky Captain Beefheart freak-blues to ambient shoegaze metal... one thing is for sure tho, they f***in mean it maaaan....
"They sound like The Salvation Army inheirted Ronnie Wood's guitar collection falling down the stairs with the Kodo Drummers while somewhere in the corner, Jimmy Buffet barks direction after an all-night bender..."
Their influences include Chuck D Weiss, Tom Waits, Lemmy,The Troggs, Captain Beefheart, Iggy Pop, Jesus and Mary Chain, Lenny Bruce, Black Flag, Bill Hicks, Nicole Ritchie, Burgess The Rhymer, Keef Richards, and Death in Vegas, just for the natty look.
English 70s rock with a rough & ready sound from the people who also bring you Corporal Machine & the Bombers. Imagine The Damned punching Deep Purple right between the eyes in an argument over who spilled beer on a copy of Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment".
