The Phantom Band : One Inch Badge presents
7:00pm Thu 2nd Oct 2014 @ The Haunt
Listen now
£9 tickets

It’s the Friday night of the Great Escape 2009 and this writer, having ruined his chances of catching Holy Fuck as a result of drunken procrastination, takes a look at his program and vaguely remembers reading something in Drowned In Sound extolling the virtues of a mysterious Scottish outfit called The Phantom Band. As mistakes  [read more...]

with Dingus Khan and Broker - 7:00pm Mon 6th Oct 2014 @ The Haunt
Listen now Recommended Gig
£11 tickets

Let’s say Mark E Smith has an illegitimate son; there would be no better candidate for the honour than Andy Falkous. Consider the similarities: both are truculent, outspoken, intelligent, difficult, master wordsmiths, musically familiar yet individual, bluntly honest and adored by their respective cults. Hell, their taste in wives extends to having them in the  [read more...]

Atmosphere : One Inch Badge presents
7:30pm Wed 8th Oct 2014 @ Concorde
Listen now
£14 tickets

Minnesota’s 4th most famous export (behind Prince, Bob Dylan and ‘being nice’) return to Brighton to hawk their adrenaline-fuelled indie-rap antics, playing Concorde 2 as part of their North of Hell Tour. Rapper Slug and producer Ant, better known as Atmosphere, are indie-rap legends and a much vaunted live act. In the early 00s, alongside  [read more...]

Roll up roll up and all that. What we have hear is a spirited evening of otherworldly delights and temptations in the grand gothic confines of St Mary’s Church in Kemp Town. Expect smoke and mirrors, interactive light shows and much ethereal ambience. Originally from Birmingham but now freshly entrenched in London, Boy With Wings  [read more...]

£10 tickets

T=0 by Tall Ships wasn’t just this writers favourite song by a Brighton act in 2012. It was his favourite song of 2012. A masterful piece of emotive mathy rock with the perfect mix of brain and a soul. Dynamic but simple, it goes exactly where it needs to get to with the greatest of ease.  [read more...]

Peter Broderick : One Inch Badge presents:
with Loch Lomond - 7:00pm Fri 17th Oct 2014 @ The Haunt
Listen now Recommended Gig
£12 tickets

Straddling the thin line between singer-songwriter and actual proper composer, Peter Broderick – who plays The Haunt on October 17th – manages to excel at the kind of ‘nice’ music your mum would like, while maintaining enough experimentalism to avoid the usual redundancy that goes hand in hand with such gestures. Part neo-folk, part modern classical,  [read more...]

The Radiophonic Workshop : The Radiophonic Workshop
7:00pm Sat 18th Oct 2014 @ St George's Church
Go to website
£17.50 tickets

If you’re involved with a collective of composers who have been going for over 50 years, and who can count among their least interesting works the Doctor Who theme tune, you’re off to a good start. Despite most of its founding members being dead, the Radiophonic Workshop is back in action, finally appearing at St.  [read more...]

Sage Francis : One Inch Badge presents

Listen now Recommended Gig
£13 tickets

Ahead of his impending Copper Gone album drop, legendary indie-hop wordsmith Sage Francis returns to Brighton for an intimate live performance at The Haunt. For the uninitiated, Sage Francis can be accurately described as a true hip-hop visionary. Having earned his stripes in the unforgiving battle-rap scene of the mid 90s, he became an internet  [read more...]

***This preview is an updated version of one previously run for the band’s abandoned date in April 2014. Let’s hope Jason makes it this time! All tickets from the Albert gig are valid.*** If the band name Sleaford Mods gives you a vision of a nauseatingly unoriginal Jam revival act, a la The Rifles or  [read more...]

White Lung : Teen Creeps presents

Listen now Recommended Gig
£8 tickets

You want high tempo pissed off punk rawk combustion? You want anything else? Why? White Lung are the real deal in a world of show-offs who’ve watched too many hardcore documentaries and care too much about fashion. The ‘scene’ is full of twatty men and Vancouver’s White Lung are not going to take it any  [read more...]

7:30pm Fri 21st Nov 2014 @ The Prince Albert
Listen now
£7 tickets

So, The Computers. You’d be forgiven for expecting tinfoil-clad, analogue synth wielding Button Moon krautiness. Well for once a band will play in our fair city that doesn’t have any slither of Cage/Stockhausen et al. No, The Computers are in fact a five mouthed hardcore ‘n’ roll ‘n’ hardcore sprinting runabout. Equal parts War, Link  [read more...]

Silver Apples : Dictionary Pudding presents
with Meddicine and Eva Bowan - 8:00pm Sat 6th Dec 2014 @ West Hill Hall
Listen now Recommended Gig
£11 tickets

Since the dawn of time The Silver Apples have been handed down through generations of weirdos that just need that specific gonzo psychedelic fix. That fix that also includes: Naked Lunch, Kenneth Anger, Alexander Shulgin and Robert Crumb. The Silver Apples are perhaps not quite the same counterculture household names, but they have a fizzy  [read more...]

If you’ve never heard of Netherlanders The Ex before then where have you been? Since 1979 they have been mixing all the best things that came from punk: new wave, erudite politics, gonzo noise rock and not giving a fuck; with all manner of disparate ‘world’ influences: eastern European folk, sub-Saharan beats, and of course  [read more...]
