THE GEORGE TAVERN, SHADWELL, LONDON
373 Commercial Road, London E1 0LA

Hailing from North West London, this Anglo-Colombian quartet bring an eclectic mix of influences to the table. Heavily distorted grunge riffs crash chaotically in waves over Christopher James’ shore of solid drum beats and melodic guitar lines which meld effortlessly with the hypnotic vocal style of their lead vocalist – Elliot Mountford-Brock, which is reinforced by the back-up vocals of Juan Galeano and Joshua Baum.
Live they are a force to be reckoned with, emitting a powerful wall of sound reminiscent of bands such as the Smashing Pumpkins and Queens of the Stone Age. Not only do they deliver on grounds of heaviness, intelligence and technical musical ability but comedic quips spontaneously erupt from Juan Galeano to keep the audience enticed between songs to keep the audience entertained between songs. With more hooks than a cloakroom and enough catchy sing-a-long goodness to keep a crowd humming long after their last chord has been struck, Sabre Tooth Monk are not to be missed!
The post modern art house punk musings of Matthew J Saw and Kevin Matthews. Think Genesis P-Orridge fronting Thee Headcoats. Unstoppable Achievers have been ducking & diving around the pubs and clubs of London Town for the last 18 months.
In late 2011 Joe and Sam set out to make a new band after their previous one (The Theory) split up. After finally persuading their old bassist Conall to join them on guitar, Crash Magnets was formed!
They are planning to release some recordings in the not-so-distant future and continue to play regular gigs and shows.
London Indie with a filling of pure, reverberated Shoegaze, and a sprinkling of West Coast Punk to make something delicious.
