Buy Horse Lords, Cloud Becomes Your Hand & The Evil Usses Tickets
Cacophonous Sarcophagus are ecstatic to host an unmissable evening of experimental delights from the US and Bristol.
Expect a boundless blend of West African poly-rhythms, minimalist avant-rock, art-fire sax, repeato kraut grooves and no-wave klang!
(Northern Spy, NNA Tapes)
"West African rhythms collide with just intonation guitars, art-fire saxophone, minimalist grooves, and collaged zapdowns.
Playing custom electric guitars and basses refretted themselves, the band's rolling polyrhythms chime with strange and distinct harmonies, inspired by the master La Monte Young. Floating at the boundaries of composition and improvisation, electronics and performance, the underground and the vast improbable 21st century indie mainstream, Horse Lords exist in none of these places and all of them."
" Following in the steps of krautrock, jazz rock and post-punk greats, Horse Lords have found their own expressive musical language based on minimalistic structures and dense, whirling textures of instruments and electronics blurring together in fascinating ways." - Unsound
"Vital, thrilling and utterly transcends its many influences to arrive at a new place on the map for forward-thinking American rock"
Cloud Becomes Your Hand
“Their kaleidoscopic music can go from tribal to medieval to cacophonous in a single piece. With brilliant melodies, blippy video-game sounds, and Syd Barrett-esque lyrics, CBYH feels like a joyful journey through a strange land." - The New Yorker
"Theatrical Canterbury psych and the angular agitation of Oingo Boingo and early Devo" - The Wire
"One of the most technically dazzling experimental rock bands on the rise...A well-kept secret for too long" - Fact
"Avant-prog bumping insect rock & roll"
"Purveyors of googley-eyed psych-pop of the highest order"
The Evil Usses
(Stolen Body Records)
"Bristol-based four piece playing rocky notjazz, jazzy notrock, post-op pop, notmuch and a lot else."
“No Wave jazz rock quartet gaining one hell of a reputation for their fierce and uncompromising live performances.”
