On Saturday 18th March Dulcimer Chorlton are playing host to a charity fundraiser gig to raise money for Oxjam. All the proceeds from this event goes to Oxfam to help fight poverty and improve the lives of the world?s poorest people. Visit the Oxjam website at www.oxfam.org.uk/oxjam to find out more.
On the bill are Oldham post punk indie no fi Drink and Drive, electronic gnostic space rock outfit Primitive Knot and dream pop shoegaze ensemble Danxia.
Drink And Drive are a chaotic yet compelling combination of shouted word vocals and primal musicality. The lyrics can be brutal, belligerent and sometimes bizarre yet the songs carry a sardonic humour throughout. The music is reckless and naïve, sometimes a short, sharp post-punk shock and sometimes epic, brooding and oppressive.
Rooted in pagan soil and nurtured by urban decay, Primitive Knot took form in Manchester in late 2014. Ritualistic vocals, analog synths, demonic basslines and corrosive hits of guitar psych, Primitive Knot are an evocation of 21st century madness and a ritual invocation of countervailing forces.
Warrington based 4-piece Danxia have built a steady following with their trademark sounds of swirly, psych-inspired guitars, melodic bass lines and haunting vocals. What began as a series of improvised sessions, now has evolved into the formation of Danxia, who have been performing throughout the North-West for a couple of years. Danxia are currently working on their next release, due out in early 2017.
