The time has finally come! Olanza have been trying to sort out a damn show with The Brackish for years. Literally. We also see the return of the mighty Chairfight. This is definitely a decent gig to get yourself to on a school night.
The Brackish are a thrillingly unique instrumental band formed in 2013, featuring alumni of This is the Kit, Zun Zun Egui and The Liftmen. At the core of the music are tight arrangements combined with improvisation, featuring interplay between two distinctive guitar voices. The broad vocabulary of the music – psychedelic, metal, jazz, kraut … – echoes Steve Reich, Sabbath, Can and Tortoise.
Olanza are a 3 piece instrumental rock outfit based in Bristol composed of 2 guitars and drums. They’ve just finished recording they’re debut album to be released later this year. For now you can get an idea of what is in store with the sound link.
Chairfight have been away for a while but hey! now they’re back! Below is some evidence of their rad skills.
