#^First Listen: Interpol, 'El Pintor'

The New York post-punk band has aged into its polished sound nicely, maintaining its influences (Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen, et al) while sounding more distinct from them than ever.

Savages and Bo Ningen Words To The Blind

Two of London?s most exciting live bands perform a ?simultaneous sonic poem? in a ferocious battle of improv, noise and poetry.
Live: Savages and Bo Ningen

Savages?s elemental post-punk clashes with Bo Ningen?s psych-noise, as the two bands perform head to head on a U-shaped stage. A unique experiment inspired by the Dadaist concept of simultaneous poetry ? when poems were being recited at the same time in different languages, adding up to a powerful overall effect.

'Something you just have to see for yourself' 8.7/10 Pitchfork on Savages

'Cosmic shock and awe' Guardian on Bo Ningen

Produced by the Barbican

This event is 18+, ID required.

General Admission: GBP 15.00

"Shitty Club" DJs Zak Frieling and Eric Allen share their favorite "post-punk, new wave, gothy, krautrock, etc.&q

Zak Frieling and Eric Allen used to play together in punk band Kommie Kilpatrick (full disclosure: Allen has contributed to Metro Times now-defunctsportscolumn, also I drink with these guys all the time). Years later, "after a few too many times getting bummed out to the Blade 3 soundtrack at City Club" the "'stupid name/OK idea'" formula struck again when they devised Shitty Club, a semi-regular night at Donovan's where they play "post-punk, new wave, gothy stuff, krautrock, early techno, some new weird punk bands, etc., etc., etc."

As Shitty Club, the two spin dancey tracks by bands like New Order, B-52's and Talking Heads along with cuts from key bands like The Fall, Wire, Bauhaus as well as new stuff like Protomartyr, Pampers, and Useless Eaters.?

FKA Twigs - LP1

Pummelled continuously round the head by 24-hour news. Obliged to watch an entire DVD boxset per night so as not to get left behind as a cultural dinosaur. Plans for a costly high-speed rail network just to make the journey from one bustling metropolis to a similarly overcrowded conurbation thirty minutes quicker. Software update notifications every time you plug in your damned toaster. A Facebook feed bombarded by the constantly ageing faces of your friends€™ infants. The We Buy Any Car jingle playing on an involuntary four-hour loop inside your crackling brain. Ray Winstone€™s disembodied noggin interrupting all sports coverage every thirteen seconds to bellow the words, €œCome on geezer, put a fackin€™ monkey on the €˜orses, you soft bleedin€™ muppet!€ Contracting the inability to concentrate on any arts criticism that dares to be longer than 140 characters. Too busy working, networking, scrolling, sharing and clicking to have the time or energy to even skim through a fluffy airport novel, let alone make it past footnote no. 24 of Infinite Jest.

Let€™s slow the f=== down everybody. And listen to FKA Twigs.

Traditionally, the sound of youthful dissent has often been tied to pedal-to-the-metal acceleration, be it punk rock, thrash metal, grindcore, drum and bass, happy hardcore, or The Cuban Boys€™ yodelling hamster song. Well that stuff€™s old hat now and with the world rattling forwards at twice the pace of Technohead€™s €˜I Wanna Be A Hippy€™, the only real way to rebel in 2014 is to slow down, man, s-l-ow d-ow-n.

As Sean €œMr DiS€ Adams tweeted to his bazillion followers after seeing her live for the first time, Tahliah Barnett aka FKA Twigs is a €œdrone€˜n€™b, Aaliyah in a slo-mo daydream€. The comparisons to the blue-mood soul sound of Aaliyah are apt. Barnett€™s extraordinary voice also evokes the melancholic queens of trip-hop Martina Topley-Bird and Beth Gibbons, and Massive Attack collaborators such as Sinead O€™Connor and Elizabeth Fraser (not to mention various others from the 4AD roster).

Anyone who€™s already heard the single €˜Two Weeks€™ will testify to the truly astounding nature of Barnett€™s vocals. The track is an astonishing display of power and restraint. If those desperate X-Factor wannabes are kids running amok in an unguarded fireworks warehouse, letting off bangers left, right and centre and accidentally burning their faces off with their own unfixed Catherine wheel lungs €˜cos they think that€™s what Mariah Carey does, Barnett is an expert pyrotechnic with a remarkable control over her rockets, knowing exactly when to explode and how long to hold back for pace and suspense with little more than a sparkling whisper. With extra swearing. And slower.

Kylie Minogue€™s instructions to €œslow down and dance with me, yeah, slow€ come to mind, yet despite rocking mounds of rich, deep, funky, booming grooves, LP1€™s music is too slow to dance to really. Try slo-mo boogying to this and you€™ll risk looking like an aqua aerobics class that lost its swimming pool. Its disorientating, unsettling and claustrophobic ambience would be better suited to soundtracking a Netflix reboot of Nineties yuppie drama This Life. But don€™t let that put you off. It may be slow but Twigs€™ music is constantly swerving, shifting and splicing. While its glitchy beats, swathes of bass and woozy synths may soothe, they never bore. Its production is slick, professional and precise, but fortunately LP1 remains too out-there to put on at a dreaded dinner party (unless, perhaps, it€™s one of those mythically kinky dinner parties where you all put your car keys in a bowl and then make ((excruciatingly slow)) love to someone else€™s hubby). €œSlow love / So much better when we take it easy / Slow love / So much better when we take our time,€ as Prince once sang.

Pleasingly, FKA Twigs makes sex sound as awkward and nerve-racking as it€™s always been here in post-Victorian England where we might get Prince but we never really get Prince. Twigs€™ music is undeniably sexy, but in a somewhat distracted, apprehensive and paranoid way that flirts with being more frightening/frightened than sensual. It€™s like trying to calmly enjoy a snog on the steady ascent of a rollercoaster, or being seduced by someone who you slightly suspect may in fact be a phantom. Perhaps Barnett is a phantom. Or an alien, like Prince. Or an imaginary mutant r€˜n€™b superstar who€™s escaped from the radiator inside one of David Lynch€™s transcendental nightmares.

When Twigs sings about touching herself on €˜Kicks€™, she doesn€™t sound cringingly exhibitionist like Lady Gaga or Madonna before her, she sounds wounded and alone (€œI love my touch, know just what to do, so I tell myself it€™s cool to get my kicks like you€), yet still strong and defiant (€œI just touch myself and say, I€™ll make my own damn way€). Like other aching tracks such as €˜Numbers€™ (€œWas I just a number to you?€), €˜Kicks€™ could be a retort sung by one the many girls who€™ve been dicked over by the sexual shenanigans of The Weeknd.

In actual fact, some of FKA Twigs€™ ostensibly sexy-time lyrics are deeper than they initially appear. Barnett has explained that €˜Lights On€™ (€œWhen I trust you we can do it with the lights on€) is more concerned with personality than physical matters; it€™s about being comfortable enough with somebody to reveal who you really are. And it turns out that €˜Video Girl€™, which on first listen might come across as some seedy virtual sex narrative, actually documents the far grubbier experience of Twigs€™ former employment as a backing dancer in the video for Jessie J€™s €˜Price Tag€™ (the horror! the horror!).

Confidently frail and hesitant, LP1 is a refreshing reaction to, and a calm assault upon, the unfathomably fast-paced total noise of the current age. It projects modern anxieties, vents them, and forms a big warm blanket to protect and medicate you from them too. So maybe you should surrender to Ray Winstone€™s bloating, floating, gambling-promoting mug after all and have a flutter on LP1 winning the Mercury. Don€™t let that put you off either. This is no Well-Done Our Kid by Guy Garvey and The Elbows or James Blake€™s Overblown. This one deserves it.


Primo presents James Priestley and Cera Alba

Saturday 2nd August 2014
Primo presents James Priestley and Cera Alba Metropolis, Cambridge Heath Road, London, E9 2NN, UK
Live: James Priestley, Cera Alba

Our aim is to create the perfect party atmosphere fit for the venue (no we haven?t chosen a really cool underground tunnel nor a disused warehouse) we?ve decided to take control of a bit of East London?s Heritage, Metropolis Strip Club in Hackney.

Joining us on this momentous occasion is Hot Creations very own; Cera Alba. He is a dedicated fan of the pioneers and his productions tend to deliver tight shuffling percussion, groove driven bass lines, alluring vocal cuts and harmonic melodies. Never one to be stereotyped in one genre, he often pulls on a wide range of influences when creating his music. The future is looking bright for this fledgling producer and is already a well-established DJ in the UK and Europe. He is currently developing his live set, which will see him showcase all his own productions in a special live performance.

Supporting Cera is our very own, Kayne Abel, no introduction necessary. Not to mention the extremely creative Joseph Berry, plus, it?s Primo resident Jevanni Letford?s Birthday so expect some celebration!

Joining the Primo team for the very first time, is the beautifully talented, Martina. Originally from Brighton but now based out of London, Martina is a new and exciting face on the underground scene. Her style spans from deep house to techno and she is influenced by the sounds of Ibiza, Berlin and London.

Alongside our showcase of Artists, we cordially invite a piece of international talent over the water and into the heart of East London. Claudio Cuccovillo has already been making his mark on the Italian underground music circuit and with his cutting edge sound we feel compelled to showcase him.

Expect nothing party pure party vibes, with a special guest Artist to be announced not to mention a few surprises.. This will be one event not to be missed!

See you there party people
