    [b:16bf331fef][size=18:16bf331fef]LIFE AT THESE SPEEDS
    SCIENCE OF YABRA (ex-Yaphet Koto)
    THE SNAKECHARMERS (ex-Los Cabras)

    Friday 16th September
    Pavilion Bar
    Door: 9 Tax: 5


    [b:16bf331fef][size=18:16bf331fef]LIFE AT THESE SPEEDS[/size:16bf331fef][/b:16bf331fef]
    People who are remotely interested in [b:16bf331fef]SHOTMAKER, DRIVE LIKE JEHU, RITES OF SPRING[/b:16bf331fef] and [b:16bf331fef]TWELVE HOUR TURN[/b:16bf331fef] should dig this catchy and urgent hardcore four-piece from Portland, Oregon.
    Balancing heavy momentum with tight, quick instrumental changes and intense shrieks and riffs; tracks detonate with alarm-clock impact and build to cathartic release.

    “Just as Life at these Speeds begins its album abruptly, it also ends several tracks without warning. What's jarring on disc can be exhilarating on stage, because sudden stops make sense in a setting where gradual fade-out endings don't exist. Hearing these tracks and seeing them in concert is the difference between fearing for your life during an unexpectedly insane taxi trip and enjoying a stirring yet secure roller-coaster ride.” - Andrew Miller, Portland Mercury

    [b:16bf331fef][size=18:16bf331fef]SCIENCE OF YABRA[/size:16bf331fef][/b:16bf331fef](ex-members of A Great Divide and Yaphet Koto)

    Science of Yabra takes up where A Great Divide left off. There is something about the way they sound, start stop rhythms, insane vocals, blistering guitar, that will short circuit your brain. If you smell something burning you might want to go see a doctor. Amazing.

    “Take the more frantic bits of [b:16bf331fef]DRIVE LIKE JEHU[/b:16bf331fef] and [b:16bf331fef]HOT SNAKES[/b:16bf331fef], crank the volume ten-fold and make the vocals just a bit more aggressive, and you have Science Of Yabra nailed. Even still, Science of Yabra's signature, unflinching, punch-tuffness - heavy and hollered, but still uniquely melodic - belongs to only them. Not only is SCIENCE OF YABRA easily accessible to fans of the aforementioned bands, they are also knee-deep in a more heavy hardcore sound (say,[b:16bf331fef]HEROIN[/b:16bf331fef]) that would undoubtedly appeal to people of a more "hardcore" persuasion. Clearly this is not an accident. A f ucking great record and perfect for one of those early morning "wake the f uck up" tapes.”

    That was a excellent gig, thought all the bands were great but particularly liked Life At These Speeds, first time in the Pavilion too very good venue, definitely be making it along to more of these gigs
