I'm sorry to report tonight's show is cancelled due to theft in Antwerp. :'(
"I'm massively sorry to have to report that Terry need to cancel the show tonight
The band had their personal belongings nicked in Antwerp yesterday
Al and Amy had their passports stolen
While Amy has her passport replaced as it's a UK one, Al has to wait until tomorrow to get his replacement due to the time difference - no one is awake right now to help
They are so, so, so, so sorry to have to cancel and have promised to do an extra special show for you next time
We're all so disappointed not to be able to come to Brighton tonight, I booked my justpark space and everything!!
The message from everyone was just to apologise hugely for this, we were really looking forward to it, it's hard to find the right words, sorry just doesn't seem enough! I hope you'll understand"

TERRY (Melbourne, Australia)
Remember Terry? Remember Terry! Melbourne's brightest, best and weirdest glam punk power pop post-punk rockers return.
"TERRY is getting ready, combing his hair, buttoning his jacket, turning the key in the door. "I'm doing fine," sings Terry out loud, he knows. Divide him into four and you get Al Montfort (UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver etc.), Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Primo, Mick Harvey Band) and Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell Street Bombings). Inevitably, Terry likes to make a noise. Drums, guitars and all his voices come into play, making a solid raft for Terry's inner musings to navigate the languid rapids. This all unravels at its own pace, sometimes drifting into glam pop and country backwaters, always conducting a conversation with the commonplace. Love is a highway, but you're not likely to find Terry there anymore. He's on the plane. Terry saw the light, he put on his sunhat and is heading to Europe. Debut album, 'Terry HQ' was released last year by Upset The Rhythm, brand new album 'Remember Terry' is due out June 30th."
King Alfred, Man Of Leisure (Lewes, Sussex)
Pastoral poet punks King Alfred, Man Of Leisure make a long-awaited return to the live arena with their off-kilter and experimental post-punk. Like the aural equivalent of a BFI DVD about folk traditions or a Patrick Keiller film if it was about Lewes.
Wednesday 19th July, 8pm, The Hope & Ruin.
£6 advance, tickets in Resident this week. £7 on the door.
