Don’t let the baby blue and pink advert by organisers Neversleep fool you. Their show at Little Buildings on Friday 6th May will be stuffed with harsh and brutal soundscapes from groovy tuned artists Soap, Leeds based three-piece Muckle, Geordie duo Boy Latex and Newcastle’s Gonzo Dog.

Boy Latex kick off the night, known for their eerie and disturbing sonic environments. Sometimes their sound feels heavy and metallic, while others it’ll feel gruesome and vexed. The average listener will be able to hear familiar elements in noise rock band Muckle’s tracks, but the distortion suffocates the listener as they’re dragged into an array of harsh sounds. It’s a genre that seems hostile, but once you find the beauty behind the sounds it becomes something truly special.

While actual soap might be associated with cleanliness, the band Soap’s noise is grimy and antagonistic. Relentless drums and lo-fi vocals are at the forefront of their sound, especially on bangers like Montreal 1976 with its coarse strumming.

Finishing of the night is a DJ set from Gonzo Dog, who will blast their gloomy electronic beats to culminate in a night packed with vicious vibrations.

Soap, Muckle, Boy Latex and Gonzo Dog play Little Buildings, Newcastle on Friday 6th May.
