Event Description

Attack!!!! is a collaborative series of creative works which you can see more details of at http://www.ecartilage.co.uk/attack

The zine has been called 'revered' by Dazed and Confused, 'curious' by Fanzine Fanatique, 'engrossing and thought-provoking' by Bypasszine, 'really good' by Huw Stephens and 'a niche product, unlikely to appeal to the masses' by Leeds Music Scene.

At Attack!!!! live nights, contributors get together and do their thing on stage.

This time around it's:

Cottonmouth Rocks
Cottonmouth Rocks are a girl-boy duo who whisper dark things over loud guitars.

Their songs are songs inspired by 'big American cars, werewolves, voodoo, deserts, forests, storms and cheap motels'. Artrocker, Unpeeled, Mixmag, Fresh Deer Meat, The Source, Leeds Music Scene and The Observer have called them 'dirty', 'rolling', 'relentless', 'feral', 'menacing', 'hauntingly beautiful' and 'smart!'. We agree with all of these things.

Wellcome's Magic Ink
Gethan Dick and Wes White were commissioned in 2008 to produce a text for the inaugural exhibition on the Wellcome Collection's gallery of online exhibits. The resulting, interactive text, which is exclusively available on the Collection's website linked above, explores themes of sex, death and lemon juice. Gethan and Wes will read it together for Attack!!!! live.

Yusuf Azak
Yusuf is a singer-songwriter based in Glasgow. His intricate guitar-picking style and wash of vocals combine to give his songs a haunting, transcendant feel.
"A special set of songs that beg to be heard by a wider audience" - Is This Music?
"A major new talent" - Caught in the Carousel
"Let's not beat about the bush here, shall we - this is really, really good" - Song by Toad

Erica Viola
A poet in Omaha Nebraska whose work for us Bypasszine called 'superb', we can't afford to fly Erica over (just yet), so she's made some recordings specially for the night. That's just in case the satellite link-up fails...

Robh Hokum
Robh featured on the first Attack!!!! CD and now has a brilliant new track in the latest issue. He inhabits the same body as electronic experimenter Ylid. Decode magazine said Lewis Carroll would be jealous.

Cottonmouth Rocks and Yusuf Azak (respectively) recorded 'Yes I Do' and 19:19 specially for issue 9 of Attack!!!!, which you can buy online.

Gethan, Erica, Robh and Wes can all be found jostling for space in the new Attack!!!! 11, plus back issues.

£5 on the night, get there by 7.30 to avoid missing any brilliance.

Compere: Ben Platts-Mills.
