The Continuous Battle of Order
The Continuous Battle of Order are one of Northern Ireland's most exciting prospects. A new band made up of the drums & guitar of the now resting, and widely respected We Are Knives. An experimental, heavy handed, and heavy hitting duo, with complexity and ferociousness as their trademark. The band is building a reputation for their ferocious shows and intricate stage antics as they play with timing, tone and tempos to stunning effect.
Black Bear Saloon
Rising from the ashes of Northern Irish underground heroes Throat, Element and From Where I Stand, the Black Bear Saloon first opened its doors in 2007 to rave reviews from national and international media. Comprising of singer Aaron Abernethy, bassist Rus Cookes, guitarist Pete McCavery and tub thumper Mike Barr, the boys practised in their secret hideout for months before unveiling their jarring, riff-based rock to the public with a series of raucous, life affirming gigs that appealed to a gaggle of Irish fans who appreciate grooves that would make Clutch all tingly in the nether regions, razor-sharp riffs, and melodies that will tattoo the brain in an instant.
Comply Or Die
Comply or Die formed 10 months ago and immediately set about writing songs with the intention of playing shows and making a record. In 10 short months the post punk purveyors have already played with local acts such as Yakuza, The Evangelists and Before Machines. The band have also played Invasion Earth Club numerous times, supporting The Black Diamond Heavies from USA and playing an outstanding show at the 2008 Curfew festival.
Cheers for the support so far, its our first effort so we're really hoping people come down and give us some support and we can pull off a great event for the bands. I've got some stage times but we're just getting them finalised today, so I'll post them as soon as that's done.
We've had an unbelievable response from bands and solo artists wanting to play at the future events too, so thanks to everyone whose submitted, (I don't even remember asking for submissions! :-D) and keep them coming.
Some [b:8ba4e6697a]seriously[/b:8ba4e6697a] good line-ups in the coming months too, so I'll let you know once it's all been written into stone.
Thanks again, and see you on Friday night! To be honest, I can't f*ckin wait...
I have but a wee wispy beard, which is basically overgrown stubble. I'm going to try and get my hands on some of that spray stuff balding men use to hide their modesty, and use it to turn my face fur into a blooming chin coat. Tonight will be known as The Big Beard, if I have my way...
Turns out Twitpic doesn't like you embedding pics from their server without a link back to them, so you can either go back there and copy and paste the code they give you, or else move it to another place, as I've done.
Well I thought that turned out great. that new black bear saloon tune is the business and i loved the rawness of Comply or Die. great to see so many people out and about too and wee golf claps for Damien and Jon for making sure everything ran so smoothly.
Next month's Big Gig is Mojo Fury, Cashier No. 9 and Dutch Schultz
