Friday 5th September at The Labour Club, Earl & Charles, Northampton NN1

Masters of Budvar present


Mighty Bristol instrumental trio, whose pedigree includes Strangelove, The Blue Aeroplanes, Witness and...uh...Groove Armada, making their third appearance at the club.

The Fly reckons they're "captivating and engaging", while the NME hails their "enjoyably dirty brand of post rock". Clash Magazine wrote of their last album: "Mile-high amp debauchery - a new must-have album."

"Led by John Langley's ridiculously powerhouse drumming (slapping the skins with stick, tambourine and maraca) this is pure freakout- a psychedelic overload of noise and texture with acid fried guitar and rhythmic melodic bass- Faust as I live and breathe and we want more more more." Gigwise

With a new album, Mechanisms, poised for release on Massive Attack's Invada label, the band have moved away from their powerful post-rock noise instrumentals to embrace a shamelessly kraut-rock motorik style. Check out their latest recordings at

Also with a new album on the starting blocks is Milton Keynes based Ben Fitton, aka This Unique Museum, making his debut at Masters of Budvar. Exquisite, dreamy songs reminiscent of nothing less than Big Star's "Sister Lovers". Hear him at

A rare solo set from the leader of the band Witness.

"Starkie's vocals are imbued with that nebulous quality of soul: fragile, sensitive and exuding a dignified stoicism doubtless born of experience." - The Times

"Next up is Wigan's own Gerard Starkie with a short classy acoustic set. This is a real counterpoint to the previous noise and transports in a different way, intimate and with real distinction." - Gigwise

As usual, admission is entirely free.
