The Leeds noise merchants continue to break down walls and make waves with their pulverising riffs and in your face sludge hammer metal. Imagine a slightly speeded up version of the Melvin’s and you’ll be someway to grasping their bludgeoning sonic assault. Sprinkling their sound with unexpected psychedelic whirls Weirds are full of surprises and refuse to be easily categorised. Listen to ‘Weird Sun’ to see what we mean. Just signed to the excellent Alcopop records we’re excited to see what that collaboration brings. Support comes from fellow northerners The Vulgarians, who will be bringing their own particular brand of trippy fuzz dissonance with which to hammer your senses. Birmingham noise merchants History of Sex will get things moving. It will be loud.
