tHE gREAT wHITE cHOCOLATE dEBATE returns this month and is proud to present
The Captains of Industry Tour 2004. The Captains is a music, media and arts collective based in the UK. They are a non-profit group driven by protest and production; punk rock in ideals, but not necessarily in sound. They are the label that have already brought the frostbitten fuck-you-core madness of Iceland's MINUS.
Be prepared for:
The Good Life (link) – Now called The Permissive Society (death to The Good Life) are soon be to singing to The Captains label. They play like a collision and sound like a car wreck.
The Second Floor (link) – The Second Floor are a Manchester band that bring to mind legendary acts The Verve, Spaceman 3 and The Velvet Underground all stuck in a musical blender and served up by Jason Pierce.
Blood Valley – newest signings to The Captains label. A turbo-driven teeth-rattling outfit, a hypodermic injection of hate mainlined to a fevered heart. They are not so much dissatisfied with the current rock zeitgeist as gloriously oblivious to it.
For Tomorrows – link – For Tomorrows take 90s alternative and pop sensibilities and fuse them with indie and classic rock expansion creating a visceral and utterly seamless record adorned by intricate and distinctive shades. Illusion proves to be their greatest source of appeal and durabilty. At last! A can of lager that never runs out! [manchestermusic.co.uk]
And featuring NME DJs till the early hours.
All this for just £3 before 9pm ? We must be crazy …….
Next months GWCD is on June 17th @ Jabez Clegg
