Zarjaz (a nickname based on a futuristic comic book ‘2000 AD’) began playing music in his early teens on the fringes of West London in the 70s. Touted as the “essence of Rock ‘n’ Roll” by Melody Maker, Zarjaz otherwise received little to no promotion, he had only played a handful of shows with a modest out put of records before facing scenes of teen hysteria. Too much attention from over zealous fans, and not enough from the music industry turned Zarjaz into a recluse. These days Zarjaz remains an elusive character, yet curiously continues to retain success whilst virtually being an anonymous artist in the UK. Tronics output isn't one to be aligned or compared with bands that came before rather, Tronics are referenced as an influence by bands who came after. His contribution to the underground and DIY music remains unmatched and Gilded Gutter is thrilled to be able to bring this show to you.
The Pheromoans are an experimental rock band based in London. The six-piece play out discordant indie with ramshackle rhythms, off kilter guitars and synths. They've had releases on Convulsive, Clan Destine Records, Sweet Rot, Onec Records and are currently working on a new album.
Way Through are a pastoral punk duo originally from Shropshire, now residing in London. Informed by the field as much as the flyover, Way Through write songs which phase in and out with guitar, tapes, damaged drums and vocals. Using wrong-footed repetition, rapid interplay and free-looping happenstance the band create a ragged yet intuitive tapestry of sound. Their songs walk the streets of market towns, wait forever at bus stops and lose themselves in edgelands. This duo have also just released their second album 'Enclosure' through Comfortable on a Tightrope.
