Friday 11th June @ Norwich Arts Centre

St Benedict's, £8 adv/£9 door, 8pm.

from London:

So hip it hurts Sub Pop signings Male Bonding bring their fast & furious hardcore-infused garage punk to Norwich, hot-on-the-heels of their debut album release, Nothing Hurts. You so need to be there, dude.

"A blinding debut album. It sucks up all the best 80s hardcore influences – extracting those genius parts of Minutemen & Hüsker Dü that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end – & blending them with their own punk sensibilities & occasional shoe gazepsyche tendencies." (10/10

"The embodiment of sweaty nights at warehouse parties – leaving you bruised, heartbroken, but shouting along." (NME)

from London:

Three grrrls who brandish their attitude & talent in the shape of lo-fi noise-pop anthems packed full of scuzzy yet sweet garage thrash punk with a psychedelic twist.

"Lo-fi pop-fuzzarama... like the Vivian Girls' younger sisters, playing pop punk with more regard for joyful exuberance than shiny production values. And thank fuck for that." (Artrocker, naming Hey Friend, What You Doing? no 24 in its top 100 records of 2009)

from Norwich:

A tornado-force of barb-hooked noise, distorted by volume & pedals.

Piercing guitar & brutally driving rhythm, puncuated by punchy, snarling, call & response vocals.

Beware: Bowyer, Collins & Dewbery hunt in packs.

Scan the horizon. Sweat glistening. Guts churning. It's time to succumb to the pack mentality.
