Chaos Theory’s Best of 2018

As is becoming tradition, a few of us listed our top five albums and gigs of the year. Here are the musical moments that have stood out for Seb, Luís, Alan and Kunal.   TOP 5 RECORDS OF 2018 Seb Daughters – You Won’t Get What You Want This is how you make a comeback record. Easily one of the best comebacks since Swans reformed and morphed into a new uncompromising creature. 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 …

New DJ set – féasha

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

Casual Nun interviewed!

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.

The Fierce & The Dead interviewed!

Live set at The Nightmare Continues IV at Kamio, London

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.

Chad Murray enters the coven of the Space Witch

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.

A history of DVNE

We asked Victor of DVNE if he would be able to tell us a little bit about their history, tech or influences ahead of their headline show at The Facemelter in Camden this Friday, and he sent us all of it!

Reading about their unusual collection of influences makes us think that the new album is going to be something pretty special…
