ARSE SLAB

Chuffed as fuck to announce that Arse Slab (LOL!) have been added to the bill at next w/end's Goatfist show in Yeovil.



Arse Slab hail from the rural Lovecraftian Abyss that exists between Yeovil and Taunton. Expect a Kenji Haino style gtr n sampler noisekrieg. Apparently, main man James recently got asked to do a last minute support slot at a Metal nite at the Quicksilver Arms, Yeovil, and turned in a Sunn O))) style set of Doom-Drone using amplified refridgerator hummmm (wish I'd seen that!). Not exactly cutting-edge by Cockney standards, I know, but down here you can get burned as a witch for doing stuff like that.

This gig's starting to look like a fucking classic. More news to follow as it breaks...

Aw shit. I'm missing this right now. Please post a review. And photos.

By the way, me and Dom thought up the SS Club franchise years ago!

Arse Slab meets a bunch of Goatfisters. I'm speechless.

Yeah, the SS Club 7 thing is nothin' to do with me...it was dreamt up by some guy down here totally independently - I guess it's just a case of parallel evolution or a weird coincidence or a great band-name that was just waiting to happen...a bunch of them played in Yeovil under that name a year or two back at Woods winebar, so this is a sort of come-back for them, believe it or not. No idea what they're going to play. And neither do they, by any accounts. I was talking to someone who saw them play before and he said one of the band was making seagull noises, but he (the audience member) was so stoned that it freaked him out and he had to go outside for a, er, lie-down.

I like the idea of an SS Club 7 franchaise...lots of independently licensed units causing havoc in small towns up n down the UK...LOL!

Hi, Anthony, if you half shut your eyes and squint thru your eyelids you might just mistakenly think for one second that this might even be the stirrings of a nascent psychedelic doom-drone/noise scene in the rural depths of south somerset....

Tho obv. if there's any way I can help make this become a reality, then I'm gonna try...

I believe someone's going to be videoing part of this gig, so will hopefully be able to post some clips...

really pissed off that i can't witness this Anglo/Flemish madness first hand. Drop a bit of Ice Bird Spiral action into the mix for me.

You playing that thing in Swindon Railway Museum? I meant to put up a post about that, but I forgot...duh!

A psychedelic doom-drone/noise scene is a very good idea.
With added smoke machines? How cool is that?
