/// About the line-up…
Mr. Pharmacist: Notebooks out! 30+ album repertoire. No matter if you don’t know what they borrow from, they make the songs their own. If you’re familiar, you know. – As John Peel famously said (don’t look it up): “If you’re a fan of The Fall, you’re most certainly an acolyte of Mr. Pharmacist.” – A Pharmacist show is consistently jaw(bone)-drop inducing. Dance-frenzy-making. Lead singer stays onstage for entire set. What more could you possibly want?
Secret Wars: (Us.) Scrappy post-punk [inasmuch as that means, 2019.] Fond of influence, maintain singularity. Propagation of “friendly ear sounds” amongst fearsome noise. Frequently hummable, often not. Personality-rich. Over-wordy. Cursed to live in interesting times.
The Mean: Teethy synths, inescapable hooks, dangerous anthems. Direct & uncompromising, The Mean command attention live + on artifact. As we speak, in metamorphosis. Recently of self-titled Extended-Play. Thereafter reinvented. This is the very first and only opportunity to see what has not yet been seen. See it!
