So much ground is covered on this album and yet it is so cohesive in it’s lyrical themes and insanity of it’s content. I must have listened to …

I put this DJ set together to support Austel’s debut EP launch gig, taking place at The Finsbury in London on 23rd July. I started off trying to make it a pop set, but it went off piste a bit! Hope you enjoy it anyway. Artist links are in the info on the Mixcloud page x – Kunal

If you live in London and you like going to gigs, you’ve probably heard of Casual Nun, for a while they seemed to be the talk of the town, appearing on countless bills, playing with everyone and their mums and putting out consistently good albums on a seemingly annual basis; they’re an exciting, quickly-evolving group that deserves the hype and delivers new heights at every show. I can’t recall the first time I saw Casual Nun but, by this point, I consider them a sure-thing and I’d implore any reader to come and see them at The Brewhouse, London for our 8 Years of Chaos Theory All-Dayer to discover exactly why that is the case.

I played short DJ sets before each of Necro Deathmort, Bong, 11Paranoias, Ghold and Bodies On Everest played at Kamio in London for Old Empire’s event, so I put these together for you to kick back to and fondly think of precious memories of standing around the upstairs bar waiting for the next band to start.

I have to admit that I’d never heard of Space Witch before seeing that they were playing a show with Chaos Theory; they’re very fucking good. I wouldn’t completely lock them into the doom metal bracket but, if you’ve not heard them, they’re definitely very, very bong-friendly.
