The Common Cold + Fear Of The Horse + MAP 71

A Preston based psychedelic rock band whose sound incorporates elements of Krautrock, post-punk and northern soul, The Common Cold is a new venture by two former members of early 90s underground noise legends Dandelion Adventure, vocalist Mark Wareing and guitarist Ajay Saggar (also of King Champion Sounds). The line-up is completed by bassist Jack Harkins and double drummers Dave Chambers (ex Cornershop) and Roland 'Scrub' Jones (ex Big Red Bus).

The Common Cold's debut LP 'Shut Up! Yo Liberals!' is released on May 4th on Action Records. "A stunning debut that sees the band drink from the same magical musical fountain as The Fall, Kaleidoscope, Neu! and Quicksilver Messenger Service and yet retain their own style"- John Robb, Louder Than War.

Support comes from London / Marseilles tapes & drums duo Fear Of The Horse and Brighton's own MAP 71. MAP 71 are Lisa Jayne- voice and Andy Pyne- drums. Provocative words and percussive rhythms. Delicately raw and intensely disciplined. Dancing is permitted.
