Doctors of Madness

Described as “the missing link between David Bowie and The Sex Pistols” [The Guardian, May 2017] Doctors of Madness exploded onto the music scene in 1975 with their theatrical, William Burroughs-inspired Sci-fi nightmare, they were misunderstood by many, but those who knew understood the importance of the band’s dangerous, uncompromising approach to lyrics, to music and to performance.

They’re playing six dates across the UK in March, tickets on sale now. Support from Lily Bud and Sister Paul.

  • 22 – Brighton, The Haunt
  • 23 – Birmingham, O2 Institute 3
  • 24 – London, 100 Club
  • 26 – Bristol, Fleece
  • 27 – Manchester, Academy 3
  • 28 – Glasgow, Oran Mor

Here Lies Man

What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat? In short, that’s the underlying vibe to the self-titled debut by Here Lies Man. The L.A. based quintet is founded and conceptualized by Marcos Garcia of Antibalas, bringing his erudite experience of World rhythms and music to the more riff-based foundations of heavy rock. The results are an incredibly catchy and refreshing twist on classic forms, without sounding forced and trite like some sort of mash-up attempt.

Find out for yourself what they sound like as they play a handful of UK dates in March.

  • Fri 2nd Bristol, UK @ The Exchange
  • Sat 3rd Brighton, UK @ West Hill Hall
  • Mon 5th Leeds, UK @ Brudenell Social Club
  • Tue 6th Manchester, UK @ Soup Kitchen
  • Weds 7th London, UK @ Moth Club
