Child Abuse (the band, not the act)

We went to Islington Mill on Sunday night to see Divorce play with their new singer Jenny. They tore it up! It could be tighter I guess, but they are definitely on to a good thing with this new line up.

Who I really liked were the support/co-headliners Child Abuse. They play really good thrash-math with overdriven synths in the mix. It's fast, heavy and fun. I bought their album Cut And Run on Lovepump United, and I highly recommend it to noise/post-thrash fans.

Here is the Child Abuse myspace. Oh the puns are endless.

Paris Is Burning screening @ Anthony Burgess Foundation

Again, thanks to everyone who came down to the screening of Paris Is Burning! What a great film - it was so good to see it on a big screen, with an audience, some of whom had never seen it before and loved it. Hopefully, this is just the start of more screenings at the Anthony Burgess Foundation - plans are afoot...

I've just posted about PiB on Dangerous Minds, here it is in its entirety.
Watch it now before it gets yanked:

Relief (Pt 1) by House Machine

The other House Machine demo I found is called "Relief", as a tribute to the label of the same name. I really like this mix, so while I am going to re-record it, I will call this version part one and the new mix part two.

HOUSE MACHINE Jack 2 Jack (Demo Mix)

Jack 2 Jack (1st Mix) by House Machine

Excavating some of my drives in Glasgow, I came across two more House Machine recordings from early 2010, so I have added them to the HM page. This is a rough mix of a tune I am currently re-recording. It's going to have a vocal. Can you guess what it will say?
