Since their inception, Gnod’s musical trajectory has been one of constant fluctuation borne out of an incessant need to discover new sonic worlds. Beginning life as a shamanic drone ensemble, at times fitting up to 15 members on stage, these early rituals informed the core ideals that have come to define the group in their years of activity; community and trance-inducing repetition. Throughout a discography that has amassed dozens of CD-R’s, cassettes and vinyls for labels like Rocket Recordings, Trensmat, Krokodilo (Blackest Ever Black) and their own Tesla Tapes imprint, a restless yet organic need mutate their music into new realms has had critics clawing for comparative touch stones. Acts as far ranging as Hawkwind, Popul Vuh, Pan Sonic, Sunburned Hand of the Man and Pharaoh Sanders have all been referenced in attempt to pinpoint their output, one that has historically never aped any genre but with each record furthered their own unique place in truly independent music. It is the exact same dedication to the live arena that has seen Gnod become one of the most celebrated live bands in the UK and secured them multiple tours and festival appearances throughout Europe. In these times of cash in hand ‘glory days’ reunions and bands simply rehashing their recorded material pitch perfect live, Gnod are a stark and welcome anomaly. Already moving on from the barley released and universally acclaimed epic ‘Infinity Machines’, the current live incarnation of the band is characterised by a crushing, cataclysmic new protest music whose call to arms gravitas offers a meaningful defiance to Cameron’s Austerity Britain. Gnod have taken their very namesake and charged it with bludgeoning new edge that is as euphoric as it is nihilistic. It is one that stridently attests to the group’s spiritual center, one of community that is inclusive and respectful of its audience yet will never placate to their expectations. Instead, Gnod offer a gateway to an aural black hole and along with firm guiding hand, the opportunity to dive head and body first into a powerfully new psychedelic maelstrom full of possibilities.

Formed in mid-2017 Leicester favourites The People Assembly are on a cusp. Having supported Michael at Muthers Studio, Birmingham recently as well as Julie’s Haircut twice in Leicester and psychedelic hombres Prolapse at The Moth Club in Hackney. Hard to pigeonhole the band take influences from mind-bending psychedelic garage rock, melancholic post-punk and hypnotic Kosmische Musik. Their fanatic confrontational and sometimes destructive live performances are renowned for being a cathartic sonic rollercoaster of excessive volume levels, dazzling energy and glorious mayhem.

Colossloth is a mysterious beast hailing from Leicester (for non-UK residents a city famous for it's bland red cheese, and sitting somewhere in the middle of England). Colossloth defy categorisation, an amalgam, a hybrid of threatening Industrial sounds, surreal string interludes and elements of Musique concrète. At times hauntingly beautiful and at others distressingly portentous! Perhaps the soundtrack for the end of days, or an alien invasion. Have no doubt Colossloth will be making your life (un)bearable for some time to come... Jason B Bernard / Peripheral Records.
