FEATURE / SLOWCOACHES TAPE LAUNCH THIS SATURDAY. BYOB

UNWORK PRESENTS - TO CELEBRATE THE RELEASE OF THE FEATURE/SLOWCOACHES SPLIT CASSETTE 'TOURISTS'

SPLIT CASSETTE TO SPLIT THE ATOMS OF YR OWN PERSONAL NUCLEAR WINTER!

FEATURING...

SLOWCOACHES
https://slowcoaches.bandcamp.com/

Grunge-metal racket from slackers-gone-spare comes off sounding like L7 if they’d stayed broke, thirsty and miserable or the moment Lou Barlow finally cracks.

FEATURE
https://featureband.bandcamp.com/

Think a Stereolab of the hard left, drone-punks bleeding out harmonies to hear the polyphonic whitewash of now.

THE WORMS
https://soundcloud.com/the_worms-1

London 2-piece from Omi Palone/Cold Pumas malcontents in the vein of The Urinals. Stop/start KBD trash.

PRET-A-MONSTER

New avant-folk noise from the brain that brought you Sweetheart. Celtic Frost meets Arthur Lee's Love.

£4 - May 9th - Old Fire Station, Stoke Newington

BYOB

RELEASE!!

Feature and Slowcoaches split cassette is out now. Available from www.unworkrecords.co.uk

U006

660 releases from the end of times, we enshrine Slowcoaches and Feature as horsemen of our measly apocalypse. Sharing members with Sauna Youth/Slowcoaches/Monotony, Feature play with the disaffected mischief of early ATV/Nirvana. Think a Stereolab of the hard left, drone-punks bleed out harmonies to magnify the polyphonic whitewash of now. Slowcoaches up the fuzz for side B. Grunge-metal racket from slackers-gone-spare comes off sounding like L7 if they’d stayed thirsty and miserable or Lou Barlow finally cracking. Split tape to split the atoms of yr own nuclear winter.

RELEASE!!

Gloss Rejection's 'Meet Yourself Inside" EP is out now. Available from www.unworkrecords.co.uk

U004

Members of Weird Menace/NO/Black
Fungus/Satellites of Love/Witching Waves do degenerated song slaughter in the vein of Flying Nun Records bands. Gloom-pop for the giving up, U004 sees Gloss Rejection commit four of their glacial alt-goth transmissions to wax for the very first time. Think the unplanned offspring of Versus/Pod-era Breeders making records to reflect living in the post-party ruin of the 90s’ inevitable collapse and you’re somewhere close. File under: ‘disillusioned’. bad moons rising for the vertiginous high.

Wipers-worship from the local smoke featuring members of Feature/Vertical Slump/Warmhammer/Omi Palone/Slowcoaches. Doom-punk sounds making waves for the drowned.

U003

Bleak geeks combine emotive and post-hardcore to provide disaster relief a la Indian Summer/I Hate Myself/Portraits of Past. Always keen to drink the kool-aid first, Unwork are pleased to be putting out the first physical release from London based 3-piece Threads in the form of a 12” single on kraftpak printed sleeves. Human Hair/Echo Lake/Shallow Sanction/Moongangs personnel do two cuts of studiophile sadomasochism for those with a taste for both Slint and the sentimental.

To celebrate our favourite date on the calendar (or thereabouts), the purpose-built Unwork house band featuring members of COP, Black Fungus, Threads, ADVERT, Grimm Grimm, Satellites of Love, Screaming Tea Party, Moongangs and Facel Vega played cuts from The Stooges’ back catalogue. Farcical hero worship masquerading as good times. FFO Halloween, peanut butter and The fuckin‘ Stooges!

Unwork/Fuck-up Force Presents....

REAL CRUEL TIME

To celebrate our favourite date on the calendar (or thereabouts), the purpose-built Unwork house band featuring members of COP, Black Fungus, Threads, ADVERT, Grimm Grimm, Satellites of Love, Screaming Tea Party, Moongangs and Facel Vega do cuts from The Stooges’ back catalogue. Farcical hero worship masquerading as good times. FFO Halloween, peanut butter and The fuckin‘ Stooges!

MODERN LOVE
http://modernloveshack.bandcamp.com/

Norway’s contemporary answer to Zounds, Modern Love bring their glacial and canorous form of anarcho to the UK. Featuring members of Death Is Not Glamorous, Subject to Change, Damage Control, Kids Like Us and Milemarkers/Union Policy, post-punk meets post-DC and comes out sounding like Ignition doing Magazine songs while still high on ‘Is This Real?’. A new 7” out on Lilla Himmel and a split release on Stonehenge Records with Macedonia’s Bernay’s Propaganda already under their belt, the band create melodic post-hardcore with an urgency akin to Moss Icon for making the punx get up and do.


KINSHOT
http://kinshot.bandcamp.com/album/new-recordings

New London based three-piece in the vein of Yaphet Kotto and Reds. Former First-Timers with members of Sky:Lark, What Price, Wonderland?, Bird Calls and Man Hands, Kinshot do insistent emo-infused hardcore a la Baader Brains and Bullets In. Fresh from recording at Nottingham’s JT Soar, UK screamo veterans make a boy/girl maelstrom to rumble yr stupid feelings.


AS ONDAS
http://asondas.bandcamp.com/

Dreaming of the beach amongst the concrete and smoke, Shopping and Dog’s Legs personnel do lo-fi surfdom for harvesting the city’s dead ends. Think Bratmobile on barbiturates or Beat Happening getting it on with Psychic TV. The band’s recent split cassette with Witching Waves having already proven the trio to be trigger-happy on the covers front, expect As Ondas to no-wave a bunch of yr favourite songs in the premature spirit of Halloween.

DJ’s:

Waiting Around To Die
Witching Waves
Cauldron Duffy
Dead Co(r)ps(e)

Thursday, October 30th

Free Upstairs, £4 Basement - £2 in Costume, No Guestlist
Bring zines if you have them
All money made after breaking even will go to DIY Space for London.
