Battery Hens, Gloo & Freak At The Loft On Saturday For Horny Goat Presents

As a music fan June has kicked off strongly already with the incredible show last night by the guys over at Torn Speaker featuring Syd Kemp, Melt Dunes, Jimmy Stuart and Death of the Author. If you didn’t go you certainly missed out for sure. This Saturday though continues the trend of great bands in little sweat-pit venues with fellow new promotions company Horny Goat returning to their home that is The Loft featuring a line up consisting of Battery Hens, Gloo and Freak where tickets are a mere £3.

Headliners for the night Battery Hens are Strong Island favourites having played a number of shows for us in the past including our first ever London show at The Old Blue Last plus the launch of Strong Island Recordings at Southsea Fest back in 2012 that can be seen here. The local cult favourites are a sonic assault upon the senses delving into grunge, space rock, punk and experimental noise. The quartet epitomise the DIY culture having self released their latest EP ‘Guts‘ which comes in a hand assembled card board case plus stickers, lyric books and more. Support for Battery Hens comes from Gloo a noise-punk twosome from Littlehampton who sound like a cross between God Damn and Big-Ups which is a great thing indeed.  Expect a riff riot and a total annihilation of instruments from them. Completing the line-up is grunge three piece Freak who return to The Loft after making their debut back in October. More details about the shows can be found here.
