The total, crushing, immersive power of high volume of dense air is what’s on offer here.  If I were a complete wanker I’d say something like “Waves of treacley doom and  slabs of wrought bass await you”. However, I’m only a partial wanker so I’ll just say this is a gig featuring three bands who play superheavy and good strains of metal and drone, from a decent local promoter, and will be like God farting in your mouth. Feel the walls close in here.
 
SAT 11 SEPT

LESSON NO.1 & PUS PRESENT:

CONAN
Slow’n’low bottomed-out doom metal juggernaut from Liverpool who have been round a few years but have only recently cooked up their first proper release – ‘Horseback Battle Hammer’ on the Aurora Borealis and Throne labels. Its four long tracks are manna from Valhalla if you like ELECTRIC WIZARD, MOSS, FLOOR or EYEHATEGOD. They are also an object lesson in how to use heavy metal iconography without looking naff or trying too hard. http://www.myspace.com/conandoomconan is the place that backs my statements up.

SPIDER KITTEN
South Wales veterans (been around for the best part of a decade now so I’m calling it) who have shifted, release to release, between EARTH-hailing drone, mucky proto-grunge, big-booted doom and shimmery psychedelic rock. This is apparently an “improv drone set” which you can expect to move a lot of air. They have put several tracks here: http://www.myspace.com/spiderkitten

PUS
Initially the project of two fellows from Merthyr named Rob and John, PUS swiftly added members and, in the last few months, have been witnessed playing sets of buzzing, feedback-consumed blackened punk sludge, as well as recording a 30-minute demo of the same. The battle at this show to play the slowest and puke the most distortion out of the amps will begin keenly. Check out http://www.myspace.com/pushatesyou/
