SILVER ROCKET presents

I always have a world of difficulty describing Charlottefield because they don’t sound like anybody else. If you don’t know them you should really come and see them, but try “post rock informed by the work of the Fall and DC hardcore”, or “incredible/primal angular post punk with the greatest screaming frontman since forever.” Charlottefield RULE and we love them.
Featuring 2 former members of cat on form, Projections say “we make music in whatever way sounds good to us, currently that’s using guitar, drums, bass guitar and keyboards. we are into repeated patterns vs short attention span. clever vs stupid.”
Teenagers from Brighton who make rambling rumbling scraping skronky jerky punk and do it irritatingly well.
