Cardiff Psych Fest 2014 - A celebration of psych, garage, space rock, noise and drone....
As the "new psychedelic movement" rapidly stagnates in a mire of broadsheet coverage, sub Velvets plodding and tame exercises in nostalgia, Cardiff Psych Fest hopes to offer something a little more visceral, adventurous and un-hinged....
The Witches Drum: final ever hometown gig for these acid drenched freak rock merchants- expect an epic closing set of energy, chaos, sweat and glory.
“Lysergic doom-blooze riff tyrants, these Witches don’t just drum, they conjure up boiling cauldrons of epic fuzz.”
Haikai No Ku: Newcastle based trio featuring Mike Vest of BONG - Haikai No Ku play morose, damaged blues psych - death toll bass and crashing drums lead the way for total psychedelic guitar scree oblivion- like strange faces leering out of the mist at night. New album out now on Burning World/Roadburn records.
"Take a listen to the sonic devastation of Sick on My Journey by power trio Haikai No Ku, whose wall of noise and titanic celebrations of Midrange are a joy to behold." Julian Cope, Head Heritage
Sly & the Family Drone: Sly & The Family Drone are a primal orchestra of drum rhythms, radiophonic oscillator noise and electronically-abstracted vocals. They forge hypnotic, textural workouts in the vein of Black Dice, Shit & Shine and Crash Worship and encourage audience participation - This egalitarian approach propels audience and band together into a shamanistic setting of catharsis and anarchic celebration.
"no-one would forget their first Sly experience. ...designed to blow out the fug of your enfeebled minds." The Quietus
Zinc Bukowski: Acid punk visionaries who meld relentless, cyclical rhythms to 80's underground/no wave noise and cover it all in a haze of reverb and buried melodies. They have been responsible for some of the most memorable and chaotic shows South Wales has ever seen.
"uncompromising, unpredictable... utterly undeniable" God is in the TV Zine
Howl : Shit kicking garage blues 'n' roll of rare and beautiful power that has lit up everywhere they've been. A joyus head rush of energy and sound, like a bag of cheap pills and no work on Monday.
"...we cling on for dear life with a look of terror and exhilaration etched on our faces. Ace." South Wales Echo
The Cosmic Nod: Free form, spaced out, heavy psych rock jamming. Turn on, tune in, wig out.
The Dharma Violets: Debut gig for this lot. Expect epic, hook laden psychedelia mixed with West coast stoner vibes.
Love Bazaar: Will be bringing their Nuggets styled garage sounds to the party - plenty of strut and stomp, three way vocals, topped off with lead guitar lines that sound like creamy lazers...
