A triple bill of guitary goodness - featuring Pit Ponies' collision of kitchen sink drama and GBVesque soulful tunesmithery, power-pop'n'shoegazing jangle drone from Divisionists and kraut/indie rock grooves from enigmatic newcomers Suspicious Objects. Just ?5 on the door PIT PONIES: Purveyors of "Upminster Soul" they single-handedly put paid to the myth that there are no working class bands left in the UK. Creating their world in the upper floors of a neighbourless East London charity shop with no one else around to complain about the noise, they have been a close part of the Trashmouth family from the start, regularly sharing bills with co-conspirators the Fat White Family and Meatraffle. Fronted by the larger than life Euan Hartley, the Ponies have a directness, honesty and simplicity that seems absent from so much of today's music...and choruses to die for. DIVISIONISTS: Led by Brendan Quinn, guitarist for US underground psych legends, Abunai!, and a Terrastock veteran, Divisionists serve up a smorgasbord of goodies, ranging from sunshine pop, to droney, Neil Young-ish work-outs, with a side order of giant guitars along the way. New twists on centuries-old folk songs are the cherry on top of this dynamic rock band's offerings. SUSPICIOUS OBJECTS: Anglo-Italian Krautrock-courting collective, bound by Lou Reed's velvet spit and the raucous swell of 90s indie fuzz guitar. With lyrics that bite and bait as motorik minimalism mutates into swaggering psych-jams.
