Radar Men From The Moon, One Unique Signal and Birdstriking
Radar Men From The Moon
RMFTM (Glenn Peeters, Jan-Titus Verkuijlen, Tony Lathouwers and Bram van Zuijlen.) is a Dutch art collective who approach music as avant-garde exploration. Following on from their recent split single with White Hills, RMFTM have been ceaselessly affirming themselves as figures of psychedelic re-invention amongst their contemporaries. The band co-curate Eindhoven Psych Lab and this year theyll be performing in collaboration with Gnod to coincide with the release of the new album, appearing amongst a line-up that already boasts Parquet Courts, GOAT, Temples, Follakzoid and loads more. Theyve become known for their prolific live shows, one theyve taken on several European tours, appearing on numerous psych festivals including Liverpool Psych Fest, Eindhoven Psych Lab, Desertfest Berlin and Cosmosis Festival.
Their debut album Echo Forever (released on Fuzz Club Records) has sold out after two EU headline tours in 2013 and various one-off shows at the likes of: Roadburn Festival 2013, Duna Jam 2013, the reverb conspiracy festival 2012, Freak Valley festival 2013, Desertfest Berlin and Eindhoven psych lab. In 2014 they released, Strange wave galore. Their latest work can be found on Subversive I, released in 2015; first edition of a tryptich. The second LP in the Subversive trilogy, Splendor of the Wicked - was released to great acclaim in June 2016, and the final album of the monumental triumverate - De Spelende Mens, was released in December 2017. Throughout the series the group is looking to explore, deconstruct and subvert their creative process and themselves as a band. In doing so the immense head-on collision between psychand acid house stretches the definitions of noise, space and time.
Masked Disobedience is the first single from Subversive II and gives you an insight into the limitless and abrasive experimental properties of Subversive II: Splendor of the Wicked. Artrocker
One Unique Signal
Born with insular post-rock aggression from the ashes of tremolo drone experiment Windomn Chikkarah, One Unique Signal have been carving and refining their particular brand of space-kraut post-drone noise-core since 2002.
BIRDSTRIKING (Beijing, China)
"Birdstriking and the other bands coming out of China right now are enthusiastic to explore and find out what's their own music. And so that's a new energy in the same way that rock 'n' roll was newyoung people finding their youth culture and expression." - Anton Newcombe, Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Like Joy Division forming at a Sex Pistols gig a couple of generations before, Birdstriking was born when guitarist He Fan and drummer Wang Xinjiu met at a Carsick Cars show at Beijing's legendary, now-shuttered rock club D-22. From Birdstriking's first time on that same stage in 2009, the band quickly established itself on the Beijing indie rock scene, becoming one of the leaders of a new generation of rockers born after 1990, growing when China was fully open to the West and now as likely to cite as influences homegrown talent like Carsick Cars and P.K. 14 as imported music like Sex Pistols and Joy Division.
Noisey has made a mini-documentary for the band, and they've toured the UK with Brian Jonestown Massacre.
This a very rare, must-see UK appearance.
