To quote Stereogum: "New York-based Kraut-punk, Suicide-sampling quartet the Men’s first widely available release, Leave Home, gives plenty of goosebumps: The guys shove hardcore into a dark place then stretch it with furious noise, no-wave, DIY industrial, escalating post-punk instrumentalism, Lungfish-esque raga, a metal beat-down, and, most of all, old-time NYC energy and grit. Leave Home‘s also exciting because it reaffirms that brainy experimentation can (and ideally does) remain blue collar/zero bullshit/lots of fun. Take a listen to the raging “( )” and then “Bataille,” the song it sideswipes."
This is how booking should go: go to see band, realise band are really fucking great, realise you know a bunch of the band, realise they like the band you'd like them to play with, book band.
The other great way to book a band is to get a mail saying 'We see you have the Men playing and we'd love to play with them' you then listen, think 'cor - this is perfect and one of Spectrals is in the band too' and then you say 'yes'.
Tickets are £6 Adv:
We've got The Lovely Jonjo back latenight - him of Durr, Hot Boy Dancing Spot and more. After last month it seemed like the right thing to do.
