Crow Versus Crow presents... #7

Crow Versus Crow presents...
United Fruit | Thee Cuss Words | Horses
Saturday 10th September 2011

Crow Versus Crow are very proud to present, for the seventh in the '...presents...' series of events at Bar Up,  HORSES, THEE CUSS WORDS and UNITED FRUIT.


Fuzzed-out, no-guff rock'n'roll in the vein of Japanther, Coachwhips, Thee Oh Sees, Spector's early Crystals/Ronettes hits, yadda, yadda, yadda...
Darryl Peat EP was released on cassette by Manchester label Bright // Tomorrow earlier this year (BUY IT!). A digital version of the EP is being given away for free here.

Thee Cuss Words.

You know the score...

Thee Cuss Words - Fascinator by Anthonygdli

United Fruit.

Peddling discordant, melodic, BIG rawk that smells a bit like Shellac, Mcklusky, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Sonic Youth... Glasgow's United Fruit join us on their second stint spreading the good word about the band's debut, self-released, album Fault Lines. Listen and purchase here.

Along with awesome bands, you can expect CVC visuals and music continuing until 2am. Trains run towards both Manchester and Leeds until way past the live music curfew (11pm), so there isn't an excuse not to come. Not one! All proceeds from the night will go directly to the bands, and as always we've made the fee on the door as cheap as we possibly can, whilst hoping to cover our expenses. Come support a developing DIY live music scene - a gosh darn good cause, if ever I heard of one.

Fear of DIY

Writing anything about anything on the internet seems kind of redundant when you can post a link to it (like this and a reader would be able to find out as much about said 'thing' as I know, and more than I could tell you here.

Regardless, I want to draw attention to a live recording/online archive project called Fear of DIY, initiated earlier this year by Sam Walker and Andrew Sidney Chambi.

Fear of DIY has so far recorded live performances by Illness and Silent Front, two incredible UK bands, which can be streamed and downloaded for free, for keeps, here. More recordings are soon to be uploaded, including Shield Your Eyes and other such delights.

Previously, we've played tracks from the Fear of DIY sessions on the Crow Versus Crow Radio Show, and will continue to do so for as long as we're allowed... 'cos they're awesome.

Online archives and recording projects of this nature are a really important tool with which to document grassroots practice from scenes, cultures and subcultures that perhaps get little, or no, and certainly not enough, media attention and documentation.

('Scene' in this context is meant to be read without the weighty negative connotations of scenester scenes, rather, as a healthy network or constellation of like-minded individuals, often stretching beyond geographical limitations.)
