(Both Saturday 6 October)
Tunnel 1: Miaoux Miaoux, Carson Wells, Autumn Hang | 7.30pm | £8/£6.50adv Tickets
Update: Hysterical Injury have pulled out and will be ably replaced by noisy local trio Carson Wells
Tunnel 2: 93MillionMilesFromTheSun, His Name Is Coedine, The Carousels | 8pm | £5
Right, these are two great shows in the same venue on Saturday, so I’ve decided to splice them together into one easy post for your perusal. Controversial.
First up is the latest offering from Interesting Music Promotions headlined by one of the newest signings to Chemikal Underground, Glasgow-based electro-pop soundscapist Maioux Miaoux. Think bits of The Postal Service and Hot Chip, the good bits that is..
Support comes from Bath’s Hysterical Injury, a ‘sister-brother noise-pop duo who will tear your ears off. Sweetly.’ (If that description doesn’t pique your interest, then I don’t know what will), and Autumn Hang, who are former John Peel faves The Bomb Circle in a new techno-pop guise.
Meanwhile in Tunnel 2, spacebar-shunning Doncaster shoegazers 93MillionMilesFromTheSun (this review of their 2011 album ‘Northern Sky’ on Drowned In Sound should give you an idea of what to expect) are joined by Elgin’s Mary Chain/Raveonettes/Velvet Underground-channelling His Name Is Codeine (see below) and some jangly psychedelia courtesy of The Carousels.
