Friday 22nd September
Mika Bomb + Lord Numb + Abel Raise The Cain + Hercules II

Mika Bomb- Legendary Anglo- Japanese female punk rock experience with kick ass tood and pop appeal in equal measure, plus some sassy diversions into psych and glam amidst the ramalama. Damaged Goods Records artistes. Great fun [more] and excellent to have them back in the UK and indeed The Dublin again. Cheap Tickets Here.Lord Numb- The named benumbed aristocrat upfront kerranging the beejaysus out of his guitar, with Mr Spiderleg giving some unholy four string bottom end action and electronic probings as Jez clatters and caresses the skins like Jaki Leibezeit on scrumpy. The dark end of Iggy meets Pistols punch meets Berlin era Bowie bohemia…brilliant. Abel Raise The Cain- Deeply atmospheric indie soundscapes, with celestial ensemble vocals, has the epicness of Arcade Fire or British Sea Power at their most bombastic, and some nice ambient moments a-la Sigor Ros too. Fetching work. Hercules II- Allstar lurch and neo garage alterno bliss in a guitar orchestra stylee. Slabs and layers of slabs upon slabs of noise- did I say slabs? Slabs also salvoes, swoons, swirls, something primal and loud and hypnotic ya get me? Fans of Black Sabbath, Sunn O, Wooden Shjips, may all find plenty to enjoy here.
