Just who IS that masked man?
Otherwise known as a member of Preston’s 7th best Hawkwind tribute act Evil Blizzard, Filthydirty unleashed his solo misery during the pandemic after being locked in a cupboard for a year. The debut album sold out pretty much immediately and received rave reviews – “Sinister, eerie and loud as f**k – one of the albums of the year” (Louder Than War).
Developing the Evil Blizzard sonic guffaw into murkier realms, Filthydirty’s music encapsulates post-punk, metal, dub, krautrock, and crushing regret all wrapped up in a massive bag of cans in the park. A one-man band often helped out by his parole officer onstage, the live show was described as ‘Somewhere between Alistair Crowley and Frank Sidebottom’ which will do for us. Not to be trusted with sharp objects or animals.
The band called TV FACE are a post-punk/noise-rock trio from Lancaster (UK). Expect weird guitar combined with a tight, heavy rhythm section, laced with deranged yet tuneful boy-girl vocals. They have been compared to Braniac, McClusky, Buzzcocks, and Pixies. Tipped as ones to watch by Tom Robinson, their music “smashes against walls and floors and ceilings and changes shape on each ecstatic, erratic, elastic bounce. … An explosive, serrated slice of jagged schizoid noise pop” (Louder Than War).
“We are pulsing against the tide of inequality, and the mycelium knows” OORYA //. Pronounced, WHO R YA?! is a Queer electro punk-folk sonic excavation. Made with guitar, synth, beats, bass & Eon The Emotional Support Dinosaur.
They are “incendiary” (Adam Walton, BBC Introducing) “Breathtaking & Unforgettable” (John Robb, Louder Than War) & a must-see live! Guest artist on 6Music’s Trunk Of Punk. “It is rare to see an artist so unique” (Future Yard 2022)
AHMED & THE ROMANS
Ahmed & The Romans is an italo-egyptian garage and punk rock quartet based in Manchester. The son of the Egyptian James Brown and 3 Italians pieced together from the bowels of the old empire. A real treat, a real sonic treat to bite into. “Their lyrics dripped in irony and their melodies are soaked in complex garage rock n roll riffs. After their show I bumped into them at the kebab/pizza house next door. Their leader Ahmed was tucking into a donner kebab as the others all chose margherita pizzas. Watching them tear into those post-gig meals reminded me of their set, dirty, disgusting and juicy.”
An energetic indie punk 2-piece called Murky Buckets hailing from a town called Lancaster, formed in 2019 while working behind the bar of a pub, both inspired by artists such as Talking Heads, White Stripes, and Primal Scream to name but a few. Their unique brand of rock fuses homegrown punchy riffs and angular vocals. Now hailed as one of Lancaster’s “littlest bands” by Boris Johnson, who has just learned how to count to two.
LUNE ATTACK are a local collective who bring some of the greatest psych bands from across the country to Lancaster. When DJing, they play a selection of krautrock grooves, cosmic jazz, 60s garage bangers and everything in-between.
IDIOT BOX is the home of TV FACE’s releases, gigs, events, and DJ duties. Expect post-punk, riot grrl, alt-rock noise, alt hip-hop, art punk, garage rock, no wave.
