Let Them Eat Gak
yet another loosely themed FREE gig from LET THEM EAT GAK !
This week : epic atmospheric anthemic post-punk psych-pop post-prog alt-rock
Alternative / Punk / Rock
An exciting new project which draws on years of collective musical experience: a North-East London three-piece which reunites the members of duo The Pretty Bricks; singer-songwriter Russell Joslin and drummer Jacob Wheeler, with bass player Rolfin Nyhus completing the line-up. The band’s sound is at once both melodious and discordant, fusing distorted finger-picked guitar with taut bass-lines and insistent percussion, all providing a compellingly frenetic musical backdrop for the literate and enigmatic lyrics.
"Intelligently written music with a thick layer of soul and a bucket load of social awareness."
"...pop sensibilities, styled with the groove and funk of a soul blues outfit whilst retaining the cut, thrust and bluster of vintage rock...a great example of a quintessentially British rock n roll band, something so very vital to music in 2012"
“Listening to Howe is like listening to all your favorite Rock 'n' Roll bands compressed into a fun, young, and fresh, 2012 sound. It's easy to pick out Howe's influences, beautiful Beatles-esque vocal melodies and harmonies, sweet and jangly Libertines-sounding guitars, and a voice and lyrics reminiscent of Alex Turner. Yet simply citing off similarities doesn't do this band justice..."
HOUSE OF STICKS
House of Sticks are a new alternative rock trio from Essex. Their music melds rock, indie, grunge, metal, prog. rock and punk, with an emphasis on contrasting loud/soft music and a large variation of styles from raw, simple songs to more elaborate and diverse arrangements. They recorded their first demo in January 2012 and began gigging soon after.
