Topic: Negativ (Oslo) / The Swell / Basic Dicks / Lee Riley - Oxford 01/06
Thursday 1st June 2017
Absolutely face-melting primitive hardcore from Oslo, Norway. They only formed in late 2015, and have released a killer demo tape and 7", the latter of which was definitely a highlight of 2016. It's dark, stripped down hardcore for negative punx...

The Swell (London/Oxford)
More primitive hardcore... Imagine if a no wave band wrote punk songs and borrowed their gear from Darkthrone in 1993 and it's somewhere close to it... and that's why we're waiting patiently for their imminent demo/record/whatever.
Basic Dicks (Oxford)
Local raw punk... "Imagine if Kleenex, Pink Pile, Oh-ok, and Suburban Lawns came at you like Akka and Confuse... a super-solid, threatening demo with a focus on feminism and veganism" (MRR April 2017). That should be enough to make you wanna come along and pogo to this 'til you puke.
Lee Riley (Oxford)
A master of extreme noise. Also known from UNMAN, Lee will be kicking off the night, and he's not to be missed!
