Cancelled now. Soz. Go to Buffalo Bar instead.
Remember: everyone in the Sixties was all swirly and multicoloured, as in the photo below. The law got repealed in 1974. So this is a way cool ’6os garage night apparently, though I’d wager it’ll be teasing on a few other decades. Port Talbot’s Fire Chief 5, with their crisp and twee Byrdsian whimsy, may be the most amber-frozen of the bands here, but look to the Hangmen for proper living dinosaur thrills. The Swansea group make instrumental surf music from the top drawer, the one marked ‘superretropartytwang’. Potential brilliance that stretches back to Agatha Christie‘s era of innocence. And give it up for Italy’s Piatcions, who make a sumptuous guitar racket that adds 90s shoegaze to their stoned psych rambling. Debut album ‘Senseless>Sense’ reminds of the Dutch band Donkey for some reason. Um, it’s a compliment.
