Like Music? Like it Loud & Queer?
Then Come 29 May!
Looking forward to welcome Not Right to our stage for the first time, and the return of singer / songwriter Kye Oram. THe Makeshifts will be back for MORE and have promised a free cd for audience members with great dance moves. Battle of You was BOY and brought the house down when they played with us for the first time two years back! SO, please come! Dance! Enjoy the Music!
On Stage (not in the running order):
We are a queer 4-piece taking inspiration from early punk rock, 90′s grunge bands, and the Queercore and Riot Grrrl movements.
Most of our songs have a political slant that opposes the oppression and bullshit usually experienced by minority groups in our society.
But mainly, we just love playing music together.
I am a singer/songwriter from Basingstoke, England. I try my best to write songs about the world of which we all live, and the injustices we all face. More recently I have turned my lyrical focus onto the subject of Feminism and Women’s rights. I take influence from many different places, but within music, I an influenced by bands such as Anti-Flag, Propagandhi and Strike Anywhere. I am a strong supporter of Animal rights and Vegetarianism, Women’s rights, LGBT rights and environmental conservation. You can find my music on Soundcloud @http://soundcloud.com/
BATTLE OF YOU
BATTLE OF YOU are an emerging talent causing a stir in the London Music Scene.
Raw, loud and instinctive, BATTLE OF YOU create a unique Alternative Pop sound delivered alongside a striking androgynous image.This explosive blend of emotion, urgency and catchy hooks is something that must be seen and heard. Live and untamed, BATTLE OF YOU’s live show has gripped audiences all over London, playing to the best crowds across the city. Born out of in-band fighting, love, loss and struggle they ask you to keep fighting the BATTLE OF YOU.
We are: punk rock attitude, riot grrrl aesthetic, trans feminist rage, the politic of “people” before “profit”. We are the lead guitarist who hates to solo, the trombonist playing percussion, the singer who just shouts. We are hatred, we are joy, we are noise for the sake of noise. We are Not Right.
