Cardiff Psych Fest 2014 - A celebration of psych, garage, space rock, noise and drone....
As the "new psychedelic movement" rapidly stagnates in a mire of broadsheet coverage, sub Velvets plodding and tame exercises in nostalgia, Cardiff Psych Fest hopes to offer something a little more visceral, adventurous and un-hinged....
The Witches Drum: final ever hometown gig for these acid drenched freak rock merchants- expect an epic closing set of energy, chaos, sweat and glory.
“Lysergic doom-blooze riff tyrants, these Witches don’t just drum, they conjure up boiling cauldrons of epic fuzz.”
http://thewitchesdrum.bandcamp.com/Haikai No Ku: Newcastle based trio featuring Mike Vest of BONG - Haikai No Ku play morose, damaged blues psych - death toll bass and crashing drums lead the way for total psychedelic guitar scree oblivion- like strange faces leering out of the mist at night. New album out now on Burning World/Roadburn records.
"Take a listen to the sonic devastation of Sick on My Journey by power trio Haikai No Ku, whose wall of noise and titanic celebrations of Midrange are a joy to behold." Julian Cope, Head Heritage
Sly & the Family Drone: Sly & The Family Drone are a primal orchestra of drum rhythms, radiophonic oscillator noise and electronically-abstracted vocals. They forge hypnotic, textural workouts in the vein of Black Dice, Shit & Shine and Crash Worship and encourage audience participation - This egalitarian approach propels audience and band together into a shamanistic setting of catharsis and anarchic celebration.
"no-one would forget their first Sly experience. ...designed to blow out the fug of your enfeebled minds." The Quietus
Zinc Bukowski: Acid punk visionaries who meld relentless, cyclical rhythms to 80's underground/no wave noise and cover it all in a haze of reverb and buried melodies. They have been responsible for some of the most memorable and chaotic shows South Wales has ever seen.
"uncompromising, unpredictable... utterly undeniable" God is in the TV Zine
Howl : Shit kicking garage blues 'n' roll of rare and beautiful power that has lit up everywhere they've been. A joyus head rush of energy and sound, like a bag of cheap pills and no work on Monday.
"...we cling on for dear life with a look of terror and exhilaration etched on our faces. Ace." South Wales Echo
The Cosmic Nod: Free form, spaced out, heavy psych rock jamming. Turn on, tune in, wig out.
The Dharma Violets: Debut gig for this lot. Expect epic, hook laden psychedelia mixed with West coast stoner vibes.
Love Bazaar: Will be bringing their Nuggets styled garage sounds to the party - plenty of strut and stomp, three way vocals, topped off with lead guitar lines that sound like creamy lazers...
DJ FOOD / DJ CHEEBA / DJ MONEYSHOT - CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A 3 WAY MIX + MORE TBA
Paul's Boutique: Remixed, Recreated & Re-Cover Cymruimagined
BEASTIE BOYS TRIBUTE
Easter Sunday 20th April | The Moon Club
£7 Early birds / £10 Advance | 9pm Doors | 18+
3 years, 3 DJs and over 150 tracks in the making, ‘Caught In The Middle Of A 3-Way Mix’ remixes, recreates and reimagines the Beastie Boys’ tour de force and genre-defining sophomore album, Paul’s Boutique – and now this reworking of what some call the Sgt. Peppers’ of hip-hip is taking the stage in The Moon Club. Helmed by 3 DJs – FOOD, Cheeba and MONEYSHOT – this has been a homework project of epic proportions – more than just a mixtape, it is ‘a deeply affectionate, highly articulate love letter to a classic album, from a classic time, composed by peerless artists.” (Buzzine)
Paul’s Boutique sustained strut but also developed a kind of shimmying soulful expression. Teeming with samples, it can respectfully be described as much-loved bastard child of a thousand fathers. A list of samples runs at five pages and includes a wide and vast array of genres and artists ranging from well known artists such as Kool and The Gang, Chic, Tower Of Power, The Beatles, The Eagles, The Commodores, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC that resulted in the creation of a musical amalgamation that was not geared towards satisfying the commercial masses. Paul’s Boutique is legend, iconic not just in the hip-hop sphere, but far beyond.
Embarking on the near impossible mission, DJs FOOD, Cheeba and MONEYSHOT sorted through the labyrinthian mess of samples used on Paul’s Boutique and the sourced all original vinyl samples of all the tracks that the hip-hop trio and production crew The Dust Brothers used to create it. ‘Caught In The Middle Of A 3-Way Mix’ is the result, weaving together all the original samples plus a cappellas, period interviews and the Beasties’ own audio commentary from the reissued release into an electrifying audio-visual experience that is slick, fresh yet nostalgic, and completely unmissable.
MJR Live & The Full Moon present...

Tickets a measly fiver, from The Full Moon
'A melodic, mega-hectic, mash of psychedelic, pop and roots. Music to throw shapes to.'
The Sydney based five piece have been touring for two years, to increasing crowds and are delivering a refreshing vibe to Australian music. The band began their rise when drummer, Beaker and bass player Paddy Fingers, met busker Dylan Frost one night in early 09 outside the Coopers Arms hotel in Newtown.
Dylan, fresh from N.Z., was on the streets with his guitar busking outside the pub. “We met him,” Patty says, “when the Coopers Arms bouncer started telling us we should give him some money.” Frost’s melodic sense brings the Kiwi spirit and melodic lineage to the band. Frost, the youngest member of the band (the rest of the band are 22), has 21 years of life and a hundred years of heartbreak in his voice. And the band surround it in textural and psyche-y, atmospheric melodies punched out by the Sticky Finger’s rhythm section’s blunt sound scapes.
