Thursday 9th April KINSHOT + STASH + HEALTHY JUNKIES BSTV Episode # 10 Free Entry

BSTV is proud to present our tenth episode at the 12 Bar Club at its new premises on Holloway Road!

On the bill we have:

KINSHOT Newcomers Kinshot create lo-fi electric shocks of pure unadulterated power to produce awesome little pockets of vibrant, authentic punk energy. We love the dual boy/girl vocals on newest recording 'Anxiety' which add texture and attitude to the mix whilst continuing to give the sense that the whole thing has the momentum of a train falling off the edge of a cliff. In a very god way.

Having heard great fuss about recent gigs in South London we're very excited to hear them play at our tenth event.

STASH Channelling psychedelic, garage and blues, alongside spoken word, beat poetry and art rock traditions, STASH is an ineffable power house of anti-establishment rebellion. The trio is comprised of Cristian STASH on drums, Nick STASH on shrrrrredding guitar and backing vocals, along with 'punk duchess' Becky STASH on lead vocals and moog. This is an incredibly exciting band to see STASH play, as the band is currently nearing the completion of its eagerly-awaited debut album, Resistor, which has is being recorded at the infamous Toe Rag Studios.

Last time at 12 Bar, they attempted Telepathic Mind Control via moog. Who knows what they will bring this time.

HEALTHY JUNKIES BSTV has long been a fan of the Healthy Junkies and has wanted to get them on a bill since we started. A concise description of their music provided by the band is 'Female fronted New wave punk grunge band…DIY and hungry...'

Healthy Junkies' angsty rock songs, executed with great passion and conviction through their relentless gig and tour schedule, have, over the past few years, earned them a bevy of bans, and yet their fast-paced breed of underground rock refuses easy comparison.

Although the band often employ full-throttle guitar riffs on tracks like 'Resistance' (The Lost Refuge), 'Trash My Love' and 'Manifesto' (Sick Note), Honey-Jones' background in Industrial psychedelia in the form of previous band HiroshAmour (also worth a listen), means that the soaring guitar passages are often prone to wonderful, deconstructive freak-outs. The effect isn't unlike Killing Joke, musically speaking, although a little more complex in their arrangement, and ultimately, more comparable to the grunge bands like Hole and Nirvana that inform their music in a very central way.

Furthermore, the vocals of Nina Courson's vocals are unique and versatile: spitting and angry one minute, and softer and dreamy the next, which are equally by her incredible stage presence.

Expect the usual BSTV fun n frolics with BSTV & Trash souvenirs, fly on the wall Warholian filming from Mr. Joe Moon, all inside a truly spectacular venue with a legendary status.

ENTRY IS FREE but we will be asking for donations for the bands and will be passing the BSTV hat around for contributions over the course of the evening.

The Graphic

Fresh from spending most of 2014 touring the UK and Switzerland, three-piece alt rock band The Graphic are back with blistering new material and even more boisterous live shows than ever before. Fusing grunge, punk and metal together to create their trademark deep, dark and dirty sound, it's not hard to hear why they've been hailed as 'the future of UK music' (courtesy of the Rock Fanatic Rockcast).
Don't miss them as they continue their rampage through the gig venues of Europe and hold steady for the new songs - 2015 is getting Graphic already!

thegraphicband

TWOSIXONES

TwoSixOnes, bring a high energy pop rockers with soaring harmonies and contagious riffs. Their self titled genre of "mature pop" gets into bed with rock, funk and folk. This gig at 12 Bar marks the return to their homeland after a two week tour of France and Belgium. Not a band to miss live. Not a band you'll ever forget.

TwoSixOnes

IDLEHOUR

Born from an indulgence of the unspoken recesses of troubled minds, Idlehour is a dark cocktail of early 90's grunge, abrasive punk and ice cream truck melodies. Emotionally extravagant and sonically unpredictable, we make three minute pop songs for the psychologically fragile and gracefully morbid.

Idlehouruk

GEARS

Gears are a brand new south london 3-piece that make a noisy and chaotic brand of early 90's influenced alt indie pop.
FFO: Pixies, Dinosaur Jr, Pavement
