Now that bands are coming back from the festivals, more interesting are popping up again.
Twitching Tongues and Disgrace were playing last week in Paris last week so this time it’s London’s turn. No change to signal in such a short time except that Twitching Tongues seems to have been well received by the parisian crowd. Also, since Lodges were only opening in Paris, Employed to Serve will be the main support act to look out for.
Tickets are still available for £12.10
Then, the next show to be on the look out for in London is not metal but could be interesting for people curious about sound texture. Public Enemy is playing as part of a bill organised by the post-rock band Mogwai but they are paired with two musicians very much outside of hip hop but close in spirits, Tim Hecker and Ben Frost. Both composers have made names for themselves for their ability to create eerie and fantastic textures that amazes as much as the Bomb Squad used to back in the early Public Enemy days.
Tickets are still available for £24 + fees
Like I explained in this week’s review of their new album, Maruta are back in full force and with a vengeance. It’s a pleasure to finally see them on the road since I missed them in Paris when they played at the famous squat La Miroiterie and broke up shortly after. It will be time to headbang furiously without looking back to songs from their three excellent albums.
The show is free
