Mr Sterile Assembly
The mr sterile Assembly is a bass and drum duo of explosive proportions from Aotearoa New Zealand. With one foot in the world of punk, and the other dancing between noise, math rock, free-form squall, they are not easy to box, and are quite happy about that. Known as much for their wordsmithing as for their impressive live performance, sterile’s fierce delivery has been described as “oppressive and delightful both at the same time.” Organ Magazine, UK.
After 15 years, five albums, and several excursions to Central Europe and South East Asia, Sterile are looking forward to this 20 date tour across 2 continents. The band will be traveling with their latest album, It’s All Over released through the band’s label skirted Records. International distribution is through Portland based Metal Postcards. Take a listen on Bandcamp to “A jolt of pure creative spirit married to social commentary, and damn good fun!” NZ Musician.
The Honey Hahs
The Honey Hahs are three sisters from south London aged between nine and fourteen who write their own very funny well-crafted songs, interspersed with some well-chosen covers. Their preternatural talent has inevitable drawn interest from “the industry” but they are keeping it real.
Swordfish are a new jazz outfit that include guitarist Simon King, bass player Pete Marsh, drummer Tom Murrow, multi-instrumentalist Chris Cornetto, saxophonist Ntchuks Bonga & others. They describe themselves as a jazz group, but given the players it’s likely to be a very strange brew. Not to be missed.
