'Official' blurb:

THE OCTOBER REVOLUTION
BRISTOL UNIVERSITY ANSON ROOMS & AR2
SATURDAY 30th OCTOBER.
6 Entry (4.50 NUS)

DO ME BAD THINGS - 9 piece soul/rock/metal circus from Croydon resembling extras from 'Dawn of The Dead' and sounding like an unholy alliance between The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Turbonegro and Funkadelic. Currently getting plenty of airplay courtesy of Radio 1's Zane Lowe and frightening the children wherever they go.

CHIKINKI - Local electrobeat heroes currently touring their second album 'Lick Your Ticket' (Island Records). One of Bristol's best-loved bands who are now poised to go stellar after a highly rated appearance at the Glastonbury festival and shows with the likes of Kasabian, Pink Grease and The Cooper Temple Clause.

IVORY SPRINGER - One of the most talked about Bristol bands in a long time, Ivory Springer trade in stripped down, muscular riffmongery pitched somewhere between Shellac and Mission of Burma. Their debut album '32 Points On a Compass' has received rave reviews and deservedly so.

BIG JOAN - Anglo German instigators of bass, beats and noise chaos touring their critically acclaimed debut album 'Insects & Engines'. Look out for their first Peel session in November.

TERMITES - Stylish, witty and provocative, Termites are one of the most talked about new bands in the South-West. Leftfield stars in the making.

GEISHA - The nastiest, most life-affirmingly beautiful racket in the world. Imagine Joy Division being dismembered by Slayer (and loving it). 2nd EP 'Hymns for The Living Dead' out now.

THE PLAYWRIGHTS - Brilliantly combining majestic and angular indie-rock and situationist sloganeering with a fine grasp of pop songcraft, The Playwrights' album 'Good Beneath The Radar' has had excellent reviews across the board. The band have toured extensively including a support slot for the legendary Mission of Burma.

VALLEY FORGE - Beautifully melodic leftfield rock with hints of Pavement, Wilco and Neil Young. Have created quite a stir in their brief existence and major success is looking increasingly likely.

SAMMO HUNG - A perfect fusion of smart hooks, abrasive guitars and lyrics from the surreal world of lead-singer Jemma Roper. Sammo Hung are one of the cream of an exciting new crop of bands from South Wales. Their album 'Stand Up And Swear' is a classic debut.

THE MIGHTY STARS - Unashamed pop perfection from the kings of the soaring two minute chorus. Girl-fuelled garage-punk at its best.

SJ ESAU- Bristol-based singer, songwriter and knob-twiddler responsible for 2003's wildly imaginative 'Queezy Ephiphany' album. One of the most distinctive new songwriting talents around.
MALE - Awesome German-Egyptian duo featuring members of Mooz and Big Joan who combine raw post-punk guitar with an unharnessed rhythm assault. The surprise highlight of last year's Ashton Court festival. - 2pm sharp!

ANSON ROOMS: DJs/Comperes: Dan from PROPAGANDA and Gary Smith/Richard Pitt from BRISTOL UNCOVERED on STAR 107.2 FM.
