EN Rat October and Uphillbookings present a fuzzy evening featuring two international and two of the finest local grunge and post-punk bands ready to fill your ears with the freshest trash of the underground.

LICE (UK)
Twice we’ve span around the Sun, dear friends, since LICE emerged from Bristol’s artistic community and embarked on a historic, noble crusade that would bring aural discomfort and cultural enlightenment to the masses. Verily, Vapour Trail spoke earnestly in calling them “one of the most exciting things to happen in the history of Western art”.

Drawing influence from an abrasive clutch of early post-punk groups such as Psychic TV, Pere Ubu and Public Image Ltd., LICE’s lyrics deal with subjects such as xenophobia and misogyny through first-person monologues and short-stories (designed to confront listeners with their own hateful impulses and biases). The crusade was established with a string of incendiary DIY shows (including a Halloween show in a 13th century crypt) and support slots for The Fall and The Fat White Family. After seizing the capital, LICE’s debut release NUTMILK: The Basement Demos (comprising four demos recorded in their drummer’s basement) won the hearts of many further afield, leading to tour dates with brothers-in-arms IDLES, Spectres and Bad Breeding.

By the start of 2018, LICE had signed to Balley Records, a label run by Joe Talbot from IDLES. Through this historic partnership, they would finally release their first 12": a double EP released in two volumes, named It All Worked Out Great. This 'early years' collection features the songs that have comprised LICE’s live set for the past two years, having been honed, changed and finally completed.

FAVX (ES)
FAVX are Nicolás, Daniel and Carlos. Their sound has been described as something in-between grunge, post-hardcore, noise or even pop. Since 2016 they’ve been touring over 100 dates around Spain, Europe, UK and USA, hand in hand with bands such as Girl Band, It It Anita or Mourn among others.

Their first release, Welfare (Burger Records & Miel de Moscas, 2018) have been enough to catch the attention of media such as Vice, Neo2, Binaural and Mondo Sonoro. They have also made it to playlists and rankings by Brooklyn Vegan, Spotify Spain or Je Ne Sais Pop.

In the present year FAVX (art of Jagermusic Spain roster) have performed in national and international festivals such as Primavera Club, FIB, Low Festival, Monkey Week, Tsunami Xixón, Vida Festival and Winter Seupeur. FAVX were also one of the first bands confirmed for SXSW 2018.

Rat October
Rat October have been part of the Luxembourgish music scene for almost 3 years now. While the band’s sound has matured over the years, they refer to themselves as an alternative rock band whose core sound consists of grunge, post-punk and indie elements. The five-piece band has played numerous shows in different venues around the country including the Rockhal during Screaming Fields 2016 and 2018, where they won the Booker’s Choice Award by the Rotondes. After releasing their first singles in 2017 and early 2018, they hit the studio in April 2018, where they recorded a few more songs set to be released later this year.

Only 2 Sticks
Only 2 Sticks is a pseudo-psychedelic-stark-rock band founded in 2010. They are inspired by artists like Nirvana, Queens Of The Stone Age, Muse and many more. Heavy drums, a very low bass guitar and ‘in your face’ guitars supported by a powerful voice always guarantees a heavy and melancholic atmosphere. Additionally they had the honour of sharing the stage with bands such as Alright the Captain, Balinger, Cyclorama, Fews, Heartbeat Parade, The Majestic Unicorns From Hell and WAND to name a few. Only 2 Sticks are an ambitious and determined band dedicated to one of life's greatest virtues - music.
