  • CH Recommends : Cold in Berlin, Danse Society and Wake

    OK – so here is a tasty show and a half we well recommend if you can make it.

    Cluny 2 – April 11th

    Headlined by Cold in Berlin, to celebrate their 3rd album, ‘The Comfort of Loss and Dust’.  The bill is completed by the legendary Danse Society and local post-garage rockers Wake.

    More about each band, to wet your appetite.

    Cold in Berlin are one of the many excellent bands in the UK post-punk scene and put on a spellbinding live performance, they’ve played a range of events from Whitby Goth Weekend to Candle-Fest and woo’d crowds at each.   Their new album promises to be darker, slower and better – to lift directly from the press release : A black mass of punk rock, doom-gaze awaits the listener, fired by the Gothic imaginings of vocalist/lyricist Maya. With its dark soundscapes spun in haunting imagery and a feeling of the uncanny, The Comfort of Loss & Dust plays like the aural accompaniment to a Hermann Hesse nightmare. The down-tuned guitars and powerful drums create a tide of sound; carrying Maya‘s vocals as she twists and writhes through the murky waters of love, loss and bone-shaking lust.

    The Danse Society : Originally formed in 1980, The Danse Society had assorted hits in the indie charts including ‘Somewhere’, ‘We’re so Happy’, ‘2000 Light Years from Home’ (see below) and the double A-side of ‘Clock’/’Continent’.   Although the band split in 1987 they recently reformed and are doing shows again.

    Wake : aka Joseph O’Donnell and Jack Hope are known for being one of the most explosive and attention-grabbing bands on the local scene at the minute, expect their set to contain deafening levels of riffage and some serious sick rhythms.

    OK, I nicked that from NARC – but they summed them up perfectly.

    And… the best bit…

    Tickets are just £6 in advance.  Yep.  £6 in advance.  You can grab them from seetickets here – or from Reflex Records – or pay a bit more on the door on the night (£8)
