A bristling and expansive melodic madness inherited from 1970s studio megalomaniacs such as ALAN PARSONS and ELO, devoured, digested, sent back in time and thrown up over some bizarrely funky rhythmic backdrops that one would perhaps define as nerdxploitation. Almost like a shy hyper-intelligent cousin of a couple of popular French dance acts also raised on unhealthy doses of weiro synth music, experimental disco and coffee bbandmp.tumblr.com

THIS FRONTIER NEEDS HEROES / ZACHARY CALE 8pm £7 adv / £MOTD

With a penchant for global pop and psychedelic tribal beats, RAINBOW ARABIA have caught ears across the world. Inspiration for their debut album was found in between future-thinking contemporary club music (techno, hip-hop, dubstep) and the organic globe-trekking dance music of the last century (reggae, ragas, gamelan). Add an affection for 80s synth-pop and gothic influences like LOVE AND ROCKETS and OMD, and you have an interesting recipe that is utterly unclassifiable as it is repeatedly listenable.

8pm £6 adv/£MOTD

ARCHIMEDES

59 year old, 400 album-releasing legend R. STEVIE MOORE was born in Nashville to ELVIS’ bass player. He started home recording in the 60s and releasing in the 70s, then a relentless nutjob stream of cassettes and CDRs followed: FREAK POP, MANGLED AOR, BOSSA NOVA, DOO-WOP, SPEAK & SPELL ELECTRONICS, BEATLES COVER ALBUMS – over 400 albums in all, thousands of songs coated in cranky, primitivist bedroom experimentalism. This is his first ever tour. If you’ve ever displayed even a passing interest in the ‘eccentric’ work of DANIEL JOHNSTON or BRIAN WILSON you have to be here.

DRAFTS / NGOD

8pm £3 entry Lying somewhere between FOALS and MOGWAI – ARCHIMEDES blend indie, math & post-rock influences to create gracefully off-kilter antianthems. Heartfelt guitar reminiscent of TUBELORD and seeped in dreamlike waves of synth that make MY BLOODY VALENTINE so iconic.

DIVORCE

8pm £5 adv/£6 doors

8pm £5 entry

JAMIE THOMAS

Portland duo ASSS claim to sound like THE SMITHS but with only drums and oscillators – tribal, psychogenic scuzz-pop. MEDDICINE filters echos of THROBBING GRISTLE and SUICIDE through a wire mesh until a brutal, messed up and danceable, electro vibe takes hold. myspace.com/asss84

DRAINS / RUN,WALK! DIVORCE initiated themselves into the noise, post-wave underground in 2008, playing riotous shows hallmarked with stage/crowd invasions and feral blasts of early-Swans-infected post-hardcore. The band have taken a break, gone through a line-up change and are now weirder and wilder – ‘Love Attack/Meating’ is a true double A-side from one of the fiercest bands to breathe on these shores. myspace.com/puredivorced www.eatsbeatsandtreats.com 21

A THOUSAND ARROWS were born in Cardiff in late 2009 from a shared love of 90s NY post-hardcore, big riffs and arguments, they’re influenced by FUGAZI, AT THE DRIVEIN, HANDSOME, THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES and HELMET.

2-piece art rock band from Baltimore, who are often compared to PONYTAIL, LIGHTNING BOLT and DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979 due to their experimental guitar work and unique vocal stylings. The result of their friendship has become optimistically twisted rock’n’roll derived from every corner of psych, art, garage, noise pop, surf, drone and whatever else you want it to be.

A fusion of infectious heart-racing tempo songs and guitar heavy, anthemic numbers shows the band’s journey over the last few years and you can’t deny the feel-good positivity of the album. thelivingdaylightsuk.tumblr.com Fri 19th Aug

FEED THE DJ

8pm-12am £free entry

Tues 2nd Aug PBNJ Promo presents:

DAVE HUGHES / CIARAN LENEHAN ANDREW RHYS LEWIS & DJS 8pm £free entry

FEED THE DJ is a completely new concept. No longer do you have to sit and listen to what the DJ wants to play. You now Feed The DJ. Any style of music is cool, it’s all about YOU. You give the DJ a memory stick of tunes before 8pm (at least an hour’s worth), you book a timeslot (first come first served), the DJ plays your tunes for the hour, during which time you and your party get drinks promos for that hour. The DJ mix is then polished, uploaded online the next day, and you’re given instructions to download your own personal mix.

Two of the brightest young riot folkers come to Cardiff for this joint headline show. DAVE HUGHES has just released mini album ‘Despite The Blackout’ and has previously played with FRANK TURNER, feedthedj.wordpress.com CHRIS T-T and THE INDELICATES Mon 15th Aug – think SPRINGSTEEN growing up listening to RANCID, THE CLASH, THE POGUES and GREEN DAY. 7.30pm £free entry/£1 to play davehughesmusic.co.uk Every month we’re going to theme up our quizzes so whether you’re already Sun 7th Aug a regular at our Dr Who Quiz or if it’s your first time, come down and try 2pm £free entry out our HARRY POTTER QUIZ!
