8:00pm - with support from Phantom Plastic, The Ophelian and Stuntnut - 18+
81 Stoke Newington Church Street,
London N16 0UL
London doom/prog-folk metal behemoths Crumbling Ghost have crafted a Trolltastic melding of English folk music (the old type-not the NU-cheesy hokum) with DOOMY scary BASS and just crazy 'too many notes' twin guitar thin-lizzy style solo's that's pretty weird bu...t gee whiz-it's sure a refreshing sound to these ears. Previous outings have seen them rock out with Stinking Lizaveta, back Damo Suzuki, and perform at the 2010 World International John Peel Day. They celebrate the launch of their new album here so if you like loud and heavy but also odd english folk then this is for you.
Support from the refried remnants of 'Fantaplastic' (who imploded a few years ago and split into a worrying number of bands just as super fame beckoned) play under the pseudonymn Phantom Plastic, The Ophelian occupy a space and mood somewhere between pastoral Psychedelia, folk(lore) and olde worlde Doom, and Stuntnut a new band from ex-members of Dredlunadare playing angular, mathy Post Punk.
