Oozing charm, megaphones and a Bogshed pop-punk sound which is perpetually close to collapse Partition play their 4th pre-Christmas Blang. And here's a free mp3 Xmas present from the band, the song In Yer Dreams, Son

9 15 Sergeant Buzfuz 
22 stringed groove machine. “If a Northern Bowie was in the Super Furry Animals…infectiously catchy …remarkably escaping any immediate comparison, sound-wise, despite having a relatively accessible (though not overly-commercial) sound.” (Subba-Cultcha)
www.sergeantbuzfuz.com

10 00 Desmond Simmons
Originally released on Wire’s Dome label in 1980 Desmond Simmons’ cult album ‘Alone On Penguin Island’ is re-released digitally by Rough Trade Publishing’s Rough Cuts on December 6. It’s a collection of post-Eno post-punk landscapes and tonight is the first time this album has ever been performed. It was produced by Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis and the Wire connection doesn’t end there. Simmons formed his first band, Tyres, with Colin Newman when they were 15, played on Newman’s ‘A-Z’ and ‘Not To’ albums and co-wrote Wire’s ‘Song 1’ and ‘Get Down (Parts 1 & 2)’.

12 Bar Club, Denmark Street, WC2

Tits of Death
Extradition Order
A.R.S. Hellden
and a late set from Sergeant Buzfuz

£6
Doors 7.30
Bar ‘till 2 am.

8 30 A.R.S. HELLDEN
Swedish songwriter Alex Rita Susanna Hellden first made music using software versions of analogue synths to create soundscapes of noise. Moving to London’s East End she’s progressed to making delicate and haunting songs using keyboards and guitar.

9 15 EXTRADITION ORDER
Like The Seeds and The Birthday Party being put through a mangle. Extradition Order hail from Warrington and since their previous controversial Blang appearances (Joe Buzfuz having to protect the band from being punched by audience members while playing, people walking out in disgust, etc) have signed to I Blame The Parents Records and learnt to play their instruments a bit better. But hopefully not much better.

10 00 TITS OF DEATH
Self-styled ‘ten breasted rock machine’ Tits Of Death are uber-glam panther queens creating a motorcycle crash involving the Runaways, T. Rex and Motorhead (kinda Lem-fatales).
www.myspace.com/titsofdeath

10 45 SERGEANT BUZFUZ
Solo show from Joe Murphy and his jiggery-folkery-popery. ”vocalist Joe Murphy shares an attribute or two with loveable loonies and oddball wordsmiths like Robyn Hitchcock and John Otway. Or even Ray Davies. Or Wreckless Eric....like driving out into the green English wilderness and chancing upon a folk night singaround at a remote village pub called 'The Syphilis Ploughboy'. The crusty bread is hallucinogenic, The Handsome Family have booked a room for the night and there's a dead body in the duck pond." (New-Noise)

9 15 Sergeant Buzfuz
Modern folk songs about death, desire and drinking. And that’s just the ones about the papacy.
"Imagine XTC singing Celtic folk music, and you'll be half-way to appreciating the beautiful anarchy of the opening track. But then it really does get ever-more weird and strangely wonderful. I can only imagine the sheer joy and possible mayhem that their live gigs contain." (Sandman album review)
www.sergeantbuzfuz.com


10 00 Corporal Machine And The Bombers
New signings to Blang Records celebrate the release of their debut single ‘Cheer Up Britain’.  Bombers shows are like watching six people joyriding in a Morris Minor with a tuba sticking out of the boot. Observations on the pathos of modern life delivered by a bouncy sextet playing music hall, skiffle, antifolk, and tuba –driven pop.  21st century descendents of the Blockheads and Squeeze. ‘Please, don’t scatter my ashes in Romford!’
