Avon Terror Corps and Strange Brew Present

Yao Bobby & Simon Grab
Pan-African rap and noise soundsystem music
A refreshing new approach to experimental Hip Hop - The togolese Rapper and political activist Yao Bobby collaborates with swiss noisemaker Simon Grab. An intense soundbattle between energetic rhymes fired into a dark soundworld of raw electronic bass pulsations with a dubby punk attitude, produced on analog feedback electronics. Their show is a very raw and improvised form of live experimental hiphop – a freeform of Rap and Noise.

DHANGSHA (Bengali for ‘destruction’) is the alias of experimental musician Aniruddha Das. His music has been described as a “Detroit-inflected mutant dancehall,” occupying as it does, a stark wasteland between techno, ragga and noise. His remit is to explore minimalism, repetition and fragmentation in sound and the potential, using these principles, to convey political sentiment. Composing through live improvisation rather than multi-tracking, Dhangsha creates a particularly physical sound. He attempts to emulate the sound of damaged speakers, windows reverberating at an illegal warehouse party or the vibe of frenetic jungle radio transmissions.





From Avon Terror crew, formed in Bristol in 2017 by Miguel Prado (Nzʉmbe) and Dali de Saint Paul (Viridian Ensemble, EP/64) mixing poetics, politics with a singular, amorphous noise-design, they conjure a seething thoroughly anomalous vision of contemporary industrial music.
Please note that this show is an early evening one: doors will open at 7 pm. First act at 7.30 pm. Also, we will follow the rules related to Covid situation in that date so we might ask the audience to provide a negative LFT or a proof of vaccination on the door to access the venue.
