Part Chimp + Breaking Colts + Whinge on Friday 12th November 2021
+ support from
FRIDAY 12TH NOVEMBER
The Ferret, Preston
In the psychic wastelands of the 21st century, one particular sonic force looms large. Transcendental like the malignant force that fuels the zombie movies of lore, Part Chimp have made it their business to shake speaker-stacks, fry brains and induce jouissance and tinnitus alike across the UK. Yet whilst their legendary status as primal paragons of the riff has been largely a fixture of the vinyl-stacks and battered amps of the underground, Drool - their fifth and perhaps finest transmission thus far - has other ideas.
Drool is everything that makes Part Chimp the most intimidating primate fit to lay waste to a city near you. It is a fearsome testimony to a band with a skewed melodic skill to match their mighty potency. Echoes of their forebears - the ornery prehistoric lurch of Melvins and the droogy ur-clang of Sonic Youth among them - can be distantly discerned, yet they’re now drowned out by an individual assault as pulverising as invigorating, nihilistic yet life-affirming. This band will demolish your house, but you’ll cheerfully thank them for it afterwards.
2 piece bass and drums with intermittent vocals.
“They are the loudest band I have seen in years and the experience was not unlike standing in front of a sonic Jet engine for half an hour – but in an amazing way.”
Our local quartet of pigs. Post-punk informed DIY garage-rock played with gay abandon, Whinge slam together influences from the Mondays to the Sabbath, ESG to LCD, Genesis to The Rapture.
