Full Details

BOB NASTANOVICH – We’re joined by very special guest BOB NASTANOVICH from American alternative rock pioneers Pavement & Silver Jews. Bob will be dj-ing as DJ Need-a-Stack from 12am onwards and on hand to help with proceedings throughout (including some guest percussioning).

IRMA VEP – irmavepirmavep.bandcamp.com
Experimental and classic, unhinged and disciplined, more importantly utterly beguiling, brilliant music. Irma Vep supported Kiran Leonard earlier in the year, had a 6music session and was the top pick of new acts from the Let’s go baboon shows.

CRUMBS – www.crumbscrumbs.bandcamp.com
Leeds and York based lo fi post punk band playing ludicrously infectious and vibrant music – much vaunted by fellow Leeds act Cowtown and recently performing a Marc Riley 6music session.

THE DECLINING WINTER – www.thedecliningwinter.com
Only gig of 2016! Founded by Richard Adams, one of the pioneering act Hood (Domino), The Declining Winter play an incredibly rare show (only gig of 2016). They take forward Hood’s more pastoral, rural sounding elements. Sparse beauty, hushed vocals, distant percussion form to draw you in and hold you there. “Adams and co are producing something very special in the vast world of experimental music.” Norman Records.

JUNK – www.soundcloud.com/junkbandyork
Top York two piece – drums, guitar and vocals is all you need to create joyously fun sound – “Junk create short and sweet jangly lo-fi rackets; infectious, lovable tunes” DIY magazine.

ESKIMOOMIN – www.facebook.com/eskimoomin
Expect smoke, mystery and an urge to dance and open up to the world of Eskimoomin – looped beats, languid dance and electronics and the hypnotic vocals. It’s all garagebandloops… and wonderful they are too.

THE WHARF STREET GALAXY BAND – www.facebook.com/thewsgb
Overalls, left wing principles – and, more importantly – blistering songs filled with crafted repetition, direct statements, and experimental post-rock noise. You need the Wharf Street Galaxy Band. “They belong to the lineage of Can, Kraftwerk and The Fall, with a hefty dose of Public Image’s angular post-punk underpinned by dense, dubby basslines.” Aural Aggrevation

£6 Limited Record Store price – We support Independent music, venues and record stores and for our last show have a £6 Record store exclusive. Online www.normanrecords.com, In-store from Jumbo Records in Leeds and the Inkwell, York.
£8 advance from www.wegottickets.com and www.jumbo.com
£10 on the door.

Let’s go baboon – these are your friends for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). www.facebook.com/letsgobaboon
This is our final show of our challenge this year to put on 10 shows across 4 cities and raise over £1,000 and awareness for CALM (www.thecalmzone.net). This will be our 12th event and we’re hoping to top £4,000 by the end of November (www.justgiving.com/letsgobaboon).

The shows are dedicated to the memory of Joss Perry and Vince Sipprell.
