More Bristol music - I have a tingling sense thing telling me this is gonna be a brilliant year for Bristol music. Yeah, I know, as usual.

Nasty Little Lonely - Son Of The Flies

There’s an EP due out in Feb too by NLL, this is the lead track off it. They make a sort of gothy, grungey, noisey type noise.

Wolf x Down, Benchpress etc @ The Louis

Tell ya what, the Bristol hardcore scene is fair brisling atm. We more or less sold out the Louis last night for Wolf x Down and Benchpress. Quite an achievement for a Monday night. And yeah, not everyone was there to kill each other. For a change. Despite there being cameras in the house recording it for a laugh. Although there were still a decent enough amount of tears and scuffles that could quite easily have broken down into full on fisticuffs (but thankfully didn’t).

All round a fucking top night anyway. BENCHPRESS in particular impressed (though to be fair no less so than Wolf Down, just that I’ve seen Wolf Down before so I know how tight they are).

Somehow I was in north wales when Le Quattro Volte (2011) was released and have been hankering after seeing it ever since. I even badgered Mark Cosgrove (head of programming at watershed) about it on the Twitts a couple of years ago, suggesting a goat themed “Sunday Brunch” season.

Wasn’t really expecting to ever get a chance to see it tbh, (esp as I don’t have a TV, nor believe in watching films on a computer) but then I was listening to the latest Watershed Podcast (available via any iTunes interface near you NOW) and suddenly realised they were talking about goats -  and not only that but goats in Le Quattro Volte!

So the upshot is that it’s getting a screening next Sunday. In bristol. Not in a goat Sunday Brunch season (sadly, coz then they may be able to squeeze the other film I’ve been badgering Mark about screening, The Apu Trilogy (ok, fims) cuz I know for a fact they have goats in India) but rather in a “Film, Food and Philosophy Sunday Brunches" season which looks pretty good. Just need to curtail partying on Saturday nights for the next month so I can get to town for noon on Sundays.

All this excitement about a film I’ve never seen? Well, as someone who likes films in which very little happens, and films that are very slow, and films that are beautifully shot, I think I’m pretty safe in expecting to like it as it fits all three categories. So I hear.

Oh, and it’s won prizes at film festivals!

If you wanna read a review by someone who’s actually seen it here’s Roger Ebert’s review.

Deffo worth checking out the new EP by Bristol hardcore band Bats About Bats - Foxy Orange Web Cap.

They have a launch show for it at the Gryphon on Saturday. Bummed it clashes with Melt Yourself Down at the Exchange - missed their show earlier in the year and several people have told me it was their favourite gig of the year so I guess I shouldn’t really miss em this time.

A new video from Falling Stacks just bumped down onto mother earth, (or at least the internets of mother earth, and Tumblrs (like here frinstance)).

Tis another great video c / o the great Olo Worm James Hankins and the ending is especially good so u gonna have to watch to the whole thing now.

If you’ve missed my posts on here about them before then I’m not quite sure where you at really, but basically they’re a three piece who specialise in being compared to Shellac and bands of that ilk. Good bands.

Feel free to check out some words about the EP here and the band here.

The above by Banksy (of course), part of his “better out than in” artists residency in the streets of New Yoik. 

The video’s the killer as you can hear the squeaks & bleats the animals are making, but the best is left to last - check out the expression on the babies face. Heartbreaking.

Word! Check out what’s coming on at The Cube Microplex on 20th October. It’s only Instrument, un film de Jem Cohen et Fugazi!
So much <3 for The Cube. Every city needs a small, independent, volunteer run cinema, open to running as varied a program of interesting films, gigs, performances etc as it’s humanly possible to do. I helped put on a screening of Earthlings there a couple of years ago (cuz no one else would do) & it’d be such a travesty if it doesn’t raise the money it needs to buy the building. 

This documentary features a collaboration between filmmaker Jem Cohen and the Washington D.C. band Fugazi, covering the 10 year period of 1987-1996. Far from a traditional documentary, this is a musical document; a portrait of musicians at work. The project mixes sync-sound, 16mm. Super-8 video and a wide range of archival formats, including concert footage, studio sessions practice, touring, interviews and portraits of audience members from around the country. 

Check out the trailer yo:

Malevolence were so fucking good last night. Totally tight bill in fact, Not a dud band among the five. Staggered no one got hurt though, was like two steppin’ on a ice rink in there. The Hatchet need to invest in some sawdust pretty soon or they’re going to end up on the wrong end of some legal wranglings shit before long.

Poster for another &#8220;potential show of the year&#8221;.
"Black Pus (Lightning Bolt drummer Brian Chippendale} - - Dan Friel + The Hysterical Injury."
It&#8217;s going to be quite some night.  
(We still think it&#8217;d be better if Mr MXLX were on the bill too tho.)
