Yes, that is a lot of people involved. More important than a load of scumbag promoters and DJs though is (duh) the actual music. Cats & Cats & Cats bring their squawking, swooning mixture of post rock and clattering indie back to South Wales again: we love them here at Joy Towers and have spaffed good reviews on them like billy-o (try here and here for example). The violinist is back. Heads up. Also playing are the Siegfried Sassoon, an intriguing-sounding bunch from Surrey with a jazzpopping, genrehopping thing of their own going on. You’ll also see some sort of DJ-off between us and other actual DJs. We’re going down.

CATS & CATS & CATS – “The Boy With The Beak is where Cats demonstrate what truly sets them apart; a track that fizzes with energy whilst still managing to provide moments of aching beauty.” 5/5 God is in the TV zine

“Violin and trumpet echo over atmospheric and mathy guitars, accompanied by a shaky yet confident voice as the band pounds and crescendos all over the shop.” The 405

THE SIEGFRIED SASSOON  are Surrey band. Depending on who you ask we are Art/Post/Pop/Prog/Noise/Jazz/Math/8-Bit/Hardcore/Indie/Rock

We are just finishing recording a few new songs. Once they’re done we suppose we’d better play some bloody gigs.

One of the very few bands doing something that sounds different…falling somewhere in between Fugazi, The Flaming Lips and Dartz!
-The Music Magazine

The Siegfried Sassoon sound is a sophisticated, jazz-pop hybrid; stunning AT-AT drum patterns intertwined with melodic and sporadic vocals. Their song-writing style is of the maximum number of hooks per square inch variety.
