It's the first Brooklyn Sound Tour of 2019 and we are diving head first into a sonic assault of frantic, ferocious, no-frills metal with MUTOID MAN!!!!

Their savage sounds were born in the basement of legendary Brooklyn metal club St.Vitus and their live shows have become an exercise in showmanship, with the requisite headbanger gymnastics morphing into Van Halen-esque panache and hardcore-basement-show prankery.

Tickets for Brooklyn Sound shows are still £5, they will still include one of our awesome beers, you'll still get a piece of tour merchandise and there definitely won't be any booking fees!

See you in the pit!

Doors: 7pm

Tix: £5 (adv) - includes a can of beer and tour merch

THE DELTAS
https://www.facebook.com/The-deltas-250517841792977/
influential beyond measure to the British 80's rockin' scene, The Deltas released the essential single 'Heart Attack' and the also-essential album 'Boogie Disease' in 1981, kick-starting a wave of neo-rockabilly bands, some of which would mutate into the early stages of psychobilly.
At it ever since, their live show never fails to disappoint!

HENRY & THE BLEEDERS
https://www.facebook.com/henryandthebleeders/
Bedford. 2004. 4 young men form a band with the dream of playing raw rockabilly to audiences worldwide. Having achieved that, their recent release on Western Star Records- 'Looking Backwards' sees even more of a return to traditional rockabilly in the spirit of '56 and the bands live set is tighter than ever.

SNAKERATTLERS
https://www.facebook.com/snakerattlers/
a band you must see. Formed in 2016 from the remnants of legendary York garage band The Franceens, Snakerattlers play 2-piece-husband-and-wife-guitar-and-drum death-trash-rockabilly with an energy and conviction the like of which has not been seen for a long time. Unmissable.

Desertscene & Ripple Music present :

RIPPLE FEST UK

Ft

Stubb

War Cloud

Psychlona

Lord Vapour

————————————————————

Leading California label Ripple brings their take on heavy rock to London. Home to acts such as Mothership, Wo Fat and Freedom Hawk, Ripple brings four of their finest fuzzed-out riff acts to the Black Heart for Ripplefest this September. Ripple shared the following:

We at Ripple could not be more excited to be collaborating with our dear friends at Desertscene to bring you the first ever Ripplefest in London! It is our honour to bring you four of the most exciting bands from the Ripple roster for what promises to be a truly memorable evening. London has been a hub of rock and roll since its inception, and bringing our sound to one of the city’s most infamous clubs will be a major landmark for us. It has been a high priority of ours over the last year to expand our brand in Europe, and this is a thrilling next step. 

None of this would have been possible without the support of you the fans. We also want to express endless gratitude to Reece and Sarika for helping to make this happen!

STUBB

The power trios of the late ’60s and early ’70s are the blueprint for Stubb’s loud, hard-driving, fuzzed-up heavy blues rock. The band recorded their first full length album for UK label Superhot Records, and hit the road, gigging with such heavy rock luminaries as the Gentlemans Pistols, Firebird, Cherry Choke, Steak, Sungrazer and The Machine as well as appearing at Desertfest to a packed house. Making the trip over to Europe twice with Stone Axe from the USA further cemented Stubb’s reputation as a solid live act with some serious chops. Quickly, their debut album sold out and fans of heavy rock have been waiting eagerly for their sophomore effort. Now, Ripple Music is proud to deliver Cry of the Ocean, a blissed-out new album that will cement Stubb’s reputation in the hierarchy of heavy rock bands.

WAR CLOUD

War Cloud is a young band but far from wide-eyed innocents. Their musical history drenched in molten riffs across the timeline of heavy metal, the name alone originates from a Wicked Lady song of the same title. With roots encompassing Tony's tenure in San Francisco's heavy thrash tinged Hell Fire, Carson's melding of hard rock rhythm and old-school groove on bass, and Joaquin pounding his drums as if possessed by the ghost of John Bonham himself. War Cloud has created a new flavour of heavy rock music for those enjoying past meals served up by the likes of Pentagram, UFO, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath. September marks their first European tour! 

PYSCHLONA

Hailing from the city of Bradford in Yorkshire Country, England, Psychlonacoalesced quickly with laid-back soundscapes, fuzz-driven grooves, and weighty yet flowing riff power they mutually loved.  The ambitious and motivated foursome wasted no time writing and self-releasing their debut album while simultaneously organizing and hosting their own music festival, Idle Fest, all with the goal of taking their sound global. Psychlona floats easily between Boogie Van-era Fu and early Orange Goblin, stirred with the occasional spoonsful of Spirit Caravan to doom things out.  Of course, no matter how far they ride in any direction, Sky Valley is always just over the horizon... 

Psychlona's debut album, Mojo Rising,  was released with digital and CD via US riff-rock leaders Ripple Music and vinyl through Cursed Tongue Records.

LORD VAPOUR

Formed in late 2014 on the island of Guernsey, Lord Vapour have endeavoured to produce huge riff fuelled music interlaced with groovy bass lines and pounding drums whilst also bringing through heavy elements of psychedelic rock along with subtle elements of funk, doom and 70s rock. Founded by Joe Le Long, Christiaan Mariess and Henry Fears, from the start the band had clearly found a niche that their small island home of Guernsey had never experienced before: A combination of groovy headbanging riffs and drawn out psychedelic jams, Lord Vapour has the appeal of rockers of yesterday, modern music goers and everyone in between. The bands ability to combine many different elements into individual songs and the power behind their catchy riffs has people hooked on their sound.

The headbanging continues downstairs post-riffs with DJs spinning until late!

Thousand Thoughts,
XIII Weeks
Take The Backseat, Casey.

FROM INSIDE are back in London launching their new record 'When I'm Breathing Without You' at The Black Heart in Camden. They are an alternative metal band from UK culture capital, Liverpool. The aim of the band is simple; to offer listeners something which will help them through the dark times in their lives. Drawing comparisons to Bring Me The Horizon and the earlier Linkin Park albums, FROM INSIDE have a sound driven by an atmospheric blend of distorted guitars and emotional lyrical content, layered over captivating orchestral synths. The band are defined by their operatic charged sound, with lyrics that address some of the more difficult aspects of life

Elder Druid
Celtic occult stoner doom from Belfast, Northern Ireland.
"Conjures the fuzzed-out, hazy heft of everyone from Down at their most vengeful, Come My Fanatics-era Wizard, hints of very early Melvins and Kyuss circa Wretch." - The Thin Air
Their latest release 'Carmina Satanae' on Black Bow Records is proof these young freelance fiends are something special.
Catch them in London as part of their UK tour with Bad Kush.
https://elderdruid.bandcamp.com/

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

GNOB
Eastern, Arabic, psych and stoner fuzz from outerspace. If you've been lucky enough to catch one of their live performances before you'll know why these dudes have a reputation as one of the best live psych bands around. Their debut long-player 'Electric Dream Demon' on Drone Rock Records has been blowing minds.
https://gnob.bandcamp.com/

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
True European döner rock. London's tie-dye stoner fuzz goblins return to the Black Heart with a big bag of riffs, more riffs, and stacks of come & chutney.
https://chubbythunderousbadkushmasters.bandcamp.com/


3 bands...too weird to live, too rare to die...this will be a massive psych doom riff party!

Odds,sods and Uncomfortable Silences - London Wonk Week

19452815_10155501800034626_1318474774111737765_o.jpg

Wonk Unit have 6 albums spanning over a decade. I thought it would be a fun idea to play all the album over the space of a week in chronological order.

Monday 25th - Flying the Japanese Flag with The Murderburgers and The Kimberly Steaks

Tues 26th - Trolleys Thank You with Blind man Death stare, Aerial Salad and Incisions

Wed 27th - Muffy with TBC

Thursday - 28th Nervous Racehorse with The Cut Ups

Friday 29th - Mr Splashy With Pizzatramp and Grand Collapse

Sat 30th Terror With Consumed

We are inviting all of our fav bands to come and support each night. The line ups are already looking amazing. I want this week to be as much about the other bands as Wonk.

To coincide with all this we are releasing a new album!!!
WONK UNIT - ODDS,SODS AND UNCOMFORTABLE SILENCES (or something like that). Basically a live album with added rarities and other goodies. There's some seriously good stuff out there that has yet to see the light of day. Be nice to share it with you. Limited to 500 copies -300 black available in store and 200 colour available only at gigs (or if you write to me nicely).
