This is your Friday Night Special
We invoked some of the great old spirits to show up on our doorstep with a special, eccentric and explosive line-up. And they answered. Originally from Chile, experimental/alt rock band The ReAktion are coming to London for the First time ever!
“…A high energy wall of sound, backed by a steady beat from the drums that cuts through. Vocals have an atmospheric quality to them, giving a sonic touch to the overall sound” – Loudwire Magazine
Equally special, Bristol-based prog-punk band Franklin Mint who are ready to bring their cloudy cider-fuelled trip-hop legacy trashing prog-punk all the way from Bristol to our fair city!
..is an alternative rock band founded in 2010 Santiago, Chile. During the early years the band changed formation several times until Simon Rojas Hoces decided to establish a solid lineup with Ernesto “Virgo” Domic and Esteban Domic. The band is known for dealing with subjects such as social conscience, environmentalism. Their sound has been described as a high energy wall of sound, backed by steady drum beats and atmospheric vocals. Their skeptical message is what defines their lyrical and musical content.
They released two studio albums. Their debut album Selknam was produced by Garth Richardson in The Farm Studios in Vancouver, Canada released in 2015. Their second album Similitude came out worldwide during 2017, both albums released by the record label Mainia Recordings in Los Angeles, California.
From the dismembered corpse of Gargantuant emerged a new band with the same strange intensity and familiar punch-in-the-face riffs but this time wearing bunny slippers. Halfway between Prog and Punk yet sounding like neither, deadly serious but laughing all the way to the bottom of the cliff.
