SUPER ADVENTURE CLUB
Super Adventure Club arose from the ashes of The Stepdads to become one of the noisest and most exciting bands to come out of the capital in some time. 2008 saw them release their debut album "Chalk Horror", which was subsequently made album of the month by Vic Galloway on his Radio 1 Introducing show.
We also tipped this band for greatness two years ago in an interview with Fact Magazine, so come along and see how right we were!
"Edinburgh's radgest new band... know it’s no fun playing serious music if you have to take it seriously" ... "inventive brilliance" Chalk Horror: "****" -- The Skinny
"Super Adventure Club were quite simply one of the most exciting and intriguing Scottish bands I’ve seen in ages.
" -- The Herald
"The debut (Chalk Horror) from Edinburgh trio Super Adventure Club is an unpredictable, genre-busting stream of off-kilter noise-terrorism and mind-manipulating media malarky.
" -- The List
All the way from sunny Dundee we bring you the mighty Popolo. Counting David Shrigley and Errors amongst their fans Popolo bring their own brand of wonk math to This is Music. Set to support 65 Days of Static and Amusement Parks on Fire this band are certainly one to watch for this year.
Then DJ's from 11pm with....
