THE GIG
Bayy, Ancient Times, Home School, Abattoir Blues - Brighton, The Hope


Local Brighton bands pour into The Hope tonight for a showcase of all the city’s fuzz-laced charms. Jack Kaye’s Home School recently caused a stir with ‘Scream’, a track that dissed other boy’s cheekbones, coming off like Real Estate with a romantic agenda. Amazing. Backed by Bayy, Ancient Times and Abattoir Blues, this is a brilliant way to start the month. £3 tickets.

THE BIG NEU THING
Senile Crocodile
Senile Crocodile by Senile Crocodile

Getting by on voodoo imagery and loopy riffs, Hull’s Senile Crocodile are working up a spell that’d rival David Blaine in the ridiculousness stakes. Half of the group’s new, self-titled collection of songs is brash and tasteless, but oh so inviting. Like an itch that won’t quit, there’s a strange satisfaction trapped beneath the irritation. These guys are up in the face, bold and obnoxious. And sometimes that’s a very good thing indeed. Every so often a jolt in the system - however unpleasant at the time - kills the standard scenery for the better. So there you have it: Senile Crocodile - obnoxious, unpleasant, irritating, strange, itchy. Go listen.
