Whats On

Glaxo Babies / Klammer / Fighting

Friday, 16 September 2016 - 8:00pm

 

GLAXO BABIES

 

 

Glaxo Babies are the greatest UK post-punk band you've never heard.

 

Formed in Bristol in late 1977 and named after the British pharmaceutical giant who allegedly inoculated thousands with a toxic vaccine, the band's pioneering mix of metallic guitar, dubbed-out rhythms and shamanistic chants found its way into the bloodlines of generations on both sides of the pond. Naturally, Glaxo members later joined The Pop Group and Maximum Joy.

 

 

KLAMMER

 

 

Post-punk is definitely alive and well in Leeds, thanks to KLAMMER. You could be forgiven for thinking that you had been teleported back to 1970s due to the echoes of Gang of Four and Wire that permeate the quartet’s sound but KLAMMER are no tribute band.  
 
Listen to the catchy funky punching drum rhythms of tracks such as The Heat collide with gravelly guitar rumbles, pedal fuzz and brooding spoken vocals of Evolve, amidst art-rock teases in Rising to see for yourself that this is a band that is not only unafraid of experimentation-but is able to do it well.
 
It’s not surprising then that they have already wrangled supporting slots for bands such as Art Brut, 999, The Membranes and Department S and have been played on BBC Radio. This year also sees them tour with Richie Ramone
 
FIGHTING 
 
 
The night's proceedings kick off with a very loud bang when these Preston post-punk popsters take to the stage. Influences include Death From Above 1979, Gang of Four, Sleater-Kinne, Mclusky, The Rakes, and Rocket From the Crypt.
 
GLAXO BABIES are here with KLAMMER and FIGHTING on Friday 16th September. Doors open 8pm.
