Trof and The Skinny present… Menace Beach // Weirds // False Advertising // Fruit Bomb
Come join us on 25th September for an amazing party with four of the best emerging Northern bands at The Deaf Institute! We’re teaming up with The Skinny, a brilliant magazine known for covering the best of the region’s culture, and DICE, a ticketing company that prides itself in supporting the best new music with no booking fees.
So why come down? Well, first of all it’s super cheap (only £3 with no booking fee at Dice.fm), and you’ll be able to pick up a copy of The Skinny Student Handbook. Then you get to see Leeds’ raucous garage-grunge band MENACE BEACH on the same day new EP ‘Super Transporterreum’ is launched, a record that’s “like Bleach era Nirvana tanked up with candyfloss and ketamine”, according to NME. Since releasing their debut album ‘Ratworld’ in January this year they’ve continued with the same frenetic pace present in their music and managed to record the EP with Hookworms’ MJ in between touring with Drenge and The Cribs. It’s an EP with a technicolour sound, hinting at the promise of their second album.
Then there’s fellow Leeds outfit Weirds, a band whose ‘Off The Hook/Heavy Rain’ 7” single on Rough Trade sold out in a matter of days – a release “full of scuzzy charm and relentless ideas” (Clash Magazine). False Advertising fly the flag for Manchester (“Ferocious grunge-infused noise-pop” – Manchester Evening News). Their debut album, due out on 9th October, is raw, gritty, and ambitious. Kicking things off will be Fruit Bomb. Their combination of melody, charm, and chaos will set the tone from the offset. So that’s why you should come. See you there!
