THE GIG
Girl Band - Brighton, Green Door Store


If Girl Band’s extremes-favouring new ‘Lawman’ single appears to push the boat out, wait until the Dublin group bring out their live game. A Girl Band show comes with a serious ear plugs suggestion - and that’s just from the mouths of those who’ve already seen them play - but you’re welcome to ride it out in what’s sure to be one of the most intense shows Green Door Store will witness all year.

THE BIG NEU THING
Primitive Parts - Open Heads


Primitive Parts are a band made up of members from Male Bonding and Sauna Youth, which essentially equates to some kind of heaven sent force raised on punk ideals. ‘Open Heads’ is their new single, out next month on Sexbeat. It sets itself up as a heartbreaker, basically pelting eggs (Justin Bieber style) at passers by from a monstrous road truck. Rackety, cocksure and completely aware of just how cool it is, this is something to get dizzyingly excited about.
