May 10th – The Croft – Bristol

May 10th - The Croft - BristolA sweet to sour smorgasbord of audio and visual treats as The Liftmen curate one evening in Bristol and invite you to join them

A Celebration of The Liftmen’s New Album ‘Luftwaffe pond’
Joining the celebrations will be
 with Schnauser, Rita Lynch and featuring Hesomagari DJs
THE LIFTMEN
have been fixtures of music’s subterranea since 2002, nurturing their artful and lyrically elusive song constructs for guitar/bass/drum/voice. Joining the core members Rasha Shaheen, Neil Smith and Jamie Whitby-Coles for this live performance will be SJ Esau on sundry electronic devices. ‘Luftwaffe Pond’ sees The Liftmen step out of the shaft and into the light, presenting eleven new shapes in amphibious rock music. There are echoes throughout of those fertile times when punk’s brusque energy found its way to more subtle timbres via bands like Gang Of Four, The Bush Tetras and Jozef K, while at points an almost jazzy serenity descends recalling the Chicago school of the nineties… yet just as often this is gleefully ruptured by fuzzedout motorik detours and Deerhoofian thrusts into sonic overdrive.
SCHNAUSER
Fully ace four-piece mix psych-prog influences to whimsically arch effect. Smearing pop-cultural analysis over Beach Boys harmonies and the sort of baroque inflections favoured by 1970s technicians such as Todd Rundgren and The Raspberries.
RITA LYNCH
From sweet & vulnerable through lush & heavenly to a throat-tearing scream – a thrilling counterpoint to the amped-up Telecaster that’s always on the verge of spontaneous combustion. When Rita sings she makes the song seem like the only song in the world.
HESOMAGARI DJs
“Yoshino Shigihara (Zun Zun Egui) and SJ Esau spin fun sounds from j-pop to hip hop.”
Doors open 8pm
Costs £6
117 – 119 Stokes Croft, BS1 3RW Bristol, United Kingdom
