Acid Box: Throw Down Bones + Captain Süün + Something Leather

We love an excuse to get excessively drunk and dance around wildly to some fuzzy frequencies, so to celebrate Polly's birthday we have this tasty line up for you.

Sunday 16th September
The Hope & Ruin
Tickets £7adv / £9otd / / Resident Brighton

Throw Down Bones (Fuzz Club)
"Blurring the lines between psych, krautrock, ambient, cold-wave & instrumental electronica, this duo's sound is born from experimentation which dances between minimal rhythms & industrial soundscapes.
Born out of the demise of piatcions, the latest mystical musing from frankie frankie & dave cocks is shadowed by repeating riffs & persistent beats. choosing to once again collaborate with london producer james aparicio (mogwai, liars, spiritualized), who also acts as an occasional 3rd member, the duo further invigorate & develop their uniquely obscure sound. their mix of infectious beats & the raw energy of live rock n roll makes their dark & modern definition of cold-wave a phenomenal proposition for fans of neu, dead skeletons, kraftwerk, gnod, mogwai or suuns." Resident Brighton

Captain Süün
Formed via the spirit of adolescent excitement in Bristol at the tail end of 2016, Captain Süün are a band well and truly beyond their tender years. Following a handful of gigs in 2017 – and a raucous set at Bristol Psych Fest’s opening event in July – they immediately caught the attention of revered Stolen Body Records, with a deal soon struck.

The first fruit to bear from this relationship, the Beach Burrito EP, is a laser-targeted detonation of garage-psych, capable of putting most of their grizzled garage-psych elders to shame. Breezy jangle-pop gives way to ruthless fuzz breakdowns, and all of it rips hard enough to satisfy even the most discerning of the genre’s broad church.

Something Leather
Killer 70s electric organ with trippy fuzzed out riffs and swooning vocals.
