Gaggle are a 20 girl strong alt indie choir. Formed as a response to boring man bands, bad burlesque and a means to find an alternative place for women in music that doesn't involve drinking yourself to death out of boredom or anxiety. Bold, big and scary -- Gaggle are both a wonder to behold and an exciting, innovative musical proposition. Signed to Transgressive Records, they released their debut "I hear Flies" to widespread acclaim in February this year. Live, Gaggle appear in matching colourful robes conducted by band leader Deboarah Coughlin, layering dubstep-infused electronic backing beats behind a chorus of chanting, piercing vocals. After selling out an unforgettable single launch at St. Giles Church, this show sees them debuting new material and taking their remarkable live show to West London's Bush Hall.
"GAGGLE look like a bunch of nu rave pre Raphaelites...with amazing Technicolor cloaks on...they sound absolutely wonderful on air but are something you want to experience live...they're brilliant, which is extremely exciting." LAUREN LAVERNE, BBC RADIO 6
ViV ALBERTINE'S LIMERANCE (EX-THE SLITS)
Viv Albertine, once in the Flowers of Romance with Sid Vicious, Palmolive (The Raincoats/The Slits), Keith Levene (PiL) was the main songwriter/guitarist of the naturally wild & inventive band The Slits. She is now back, enjoying a musical resurgence of sorts, with a renewed passion and a collection of refreshingly honest, powerful, provocative, personal & playful songs.
Signed to Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth's excellent label (Ecstatic Peace) she has just returned from Matt Groening's ATP and has put together an all-girl trio line-up especially for this show, appearing as very special guests at the invite of Gaggle.
Fiction are a young quartet with the intricacies of early Foals, mixed in with a dose of Adam And The Ants, Orange Juice and noughties (yes I did just refer to a decade’s sound already) electronica. Exciting early days for this band and a great symbol of how to keep it interesting for a new bunch of men brandishing guitars, drums, electronics and more in this big bad world today. Playful yet serious, they verge between charismatic, joyful pop and experimental flourishes of excitement.
There are also DJ talents between the bands provided by BBC SWITCH TV presenter and comedian/DJ. JEFF LEACH and the lovely sadly now defunct Club Motherf*cker DJs.
