When: March 29, 2013

The annual Easter all-dayer at Brxton’s Windmill is always good value for money, but never more so than the bill lined up this Easter Friday. It’s a veritable V-Twin headlining the event, with legendary Slits guitarist Viv Albertine showcasing her excellent new music before Vuvuvultures take to the stage in order to obliterate it completely with their intensely entertaining stage show.

Preceding them on a superb line-up curated by SoundsXP there’ll be noisy garage glory from Thee MVPs, smashing psychedelia from Mickey Gloss, the blissful indie-fuzz of Flowers, Devonshire dream-pop courtesy of Big Wave, DIY mayhem from Japanese mischief-makers No Cars, and former frontman of The Loves, Mr. Simon Love.

Six quid for all of that, AND there’s a free bloody BBQ. If Jesus were alive it’s the gig he’d be going to, but then it wouldn’t be Good Friday and it wouldn’t be happening. So thanks Jesus!

DRILL: Wire, Teeth of the Sea and more...
When Wire moved from snappy punk to a more electronic sound during the eighties, they hired a tribute band, Ex-Lion Tamers, to support them, thereby hoping to satisfy both those desperate to hear classics like 'Dot Dash' and 'Outdoor Miner' and also those who were there for the new material. A couple of decades later and everyone's learnt to pretty much appreciate Wire as they are; which if nothing else affords them a greater choice of support acts. DRILL:LONDON is a four day mini-festival that sees the band play three times, alongside a bunch of bands that all fit somewhere on what has become a very broad palette. From the highly-rated Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs on Thursday night to East India Youth, the first signings to The Quietus' label, on Sunday, most of the key action will be taking place on Saturday. Wire will kick off the night playing a support-slot for kosmiche-indie cavaliers TOY at the Lexington, before legging it across town to Cafe Oto, where, after an opening set from Electrelane's Verity Susman, the brilliantly bombastic Teeth of the Sea will be riding their musical stallion across a cinematic steeplechase (as is their wont). When that spectacular ride is over, Wire will join them for a collaborative semi-improvised performance of 1991's 'Drill' that is guaranteed to rock Cafe Oto to it's very core (just don't stand at the back shouting for 'Outdoor Miner', alright?).
