  1. STENCH OF MUSCLE PRESENT

    EDIE SEDGWICK (DISCHORD RECORDS)

    “Edie Sedgwick is the transgendered reincarnation of a vacuous Andy Warhol Superstar who died of a barbiturate overdose in 1971. A visionary artist, Edie was reborn at the dawn of the New Millennium to save the world by singing, writing, and producing video about celebrities. Armed with a video projector, her precious iMovies, and an occasional backing band, Edie travels through the dark American night presenting auditory and visual art that honors the likes of Angelina Jolie, Robert Downey Jr., Paris Hilton, Martin Sheen, and other celebrity co-conspirators. Things are Getting Sinister and Sinisterer, Edie's new full-length LP was released on Dischord Records in the fall of 2008. If smarter, edgier, more ridiculous, more serious, more compelling art has been made, is being made, or will ever be made, Edie is not aware of it.”
    Stench of Muscle are proud to be hosting this show as part of the first trip over to the UK from Washington DC for this self-styled amalagamation of Fela Kuti, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and the Ol’ Dirty Bastard and pretty much total anomaly of the Dischord Records roster. New Wave party music to dance to whilst mulling over the cult of the celebrity. The new album was produced by Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye and the band is the project of Justin Moyer, member of El Guapo (AKA Supersystem), Antelope and all-round good lad. Alright!

    BILGE PUMP

    The fact that Bilge Pump need no introduction now itself needs no introduction. Or perhaps that Bilge pump need no introduction to the fact that they need no introduction has now eventually come to need no introduction. It’s hard to say. What is sure is that there are no introductions necessary for these Leeds lads and proverbial staples of utterly premier DIY music in Leeds. The kind of band that stop you from moving to another city because having them on your doorstep gives you a warm feeling of reassurance and if it was ever taken away you would become feeble, panicked and insecure; incapable of even going out of the house for basic grocery items like sugar and cans of beer. Last time I saw Bilge Pump there were bodies flying up in the air and all over the place which is something I haven’t seen at a show for a while. Hopefully it will be happening again tonight. Gawk at their effortless synchronized pumping. Super-duper album “Rupert the Sky” out on Gringo Records.

    PIFCO

    Blessed with the power of endless productivity, but cursed with having to operate within the constraints of human time, it is common for Pifco to become clogged with songs. A little work with the plunger is normally all it takes to restore the normal flow and the steady torrent of noisy, two-minute, guitar-and-synth gems begins again. Last week they layed down 284 tracks in 5 minutes. All solid gold. A total must for anyone with a penchant for ambidextrous, clattering, lofi noise-nuggets with dashes of the Fall or Wire sprinkled hither and thither. “Pifco-A-Go-Go” out now on Run of the Mill Records.

    MUCKY SAILOR

    A disproportionate amount of new hi-tech equipment is slowly turning Mucky Sailor into the equivalent of a futuristic, gearhead Dad wired into the mainframe, spiriting sounds to your eardrums via magic cyber pipes whilst his primitive, backward Lad punches the ground with his fist and speaks in tongues. Somehow sounding a bit like the Soft Machine and Trans Am too.

  6. Rumours are that this will be the first show in Leeds for Pifco with a certain Moz tinkling the keyboards... and hopefully running on the spot too.

  9. The anxiety pangs have begun marking the imminent arrival of this show. I've got a mega chuff on about the line-up so I'm hoping people are in the mood for a good saturday night thrash about. A slight hitch is that Mucky Sailor aren't playing any more due to a bent diary, but prancing in to replace the foisty space created by their departure is Nope, freshly honed in one-note trance-inducing psychedelia after two weeks jazzing off around Europe. Far fucking out, Harry. Coming soon is a beaut of a poster by the masterly Shakeeb Abu Hamden.
