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.
Ahead of the release of their new album, The Euphoric, The Fierce and The Dead will play their first show of 2018 at the 8 Years of Chaos Theory All-Dayer (at The Brewhouse, London). We caught up with them to find out their plans, goals and targets going into this year but, also to find out what they have in-store for those attending the event.

Since then, Chris has continued to …

We caught up with Flowers Of Evil after a great set at The Facemelter earlier this July. ———————————————– Author of the classic poetry volume The Flowers Of Evil, French symbolist poet Charles Baudelaire, once said that “strangeness is a necessary ingredient of beauty”. You would think that a band that shared a name with Baudelaire’s great work of the sordid and macabre would be the very embodiment of Shoreditch pretension. Not so. If you are expecting Velvet Underground references and tight black polo necks, you are going to be massively disappointed. Flowers Of Evil couldn’t give two shits if you …
