Kosmic Juke-Joint

Bonanza Presents:
'Kosmic Juke-Joint'...

Psychedelectronica from outer (and inner) Space!

@ The Lock Tavern

Tuesday 18th January 2010

Live Acts:

Standard Planets:

+ Lasers From Atlantis:

Imagine a Juke-Joint deep in space and you'll be not quite so close to the premise of Bonanza's night The Kosmic Juke-Joint...

So expect all manner of bands, Djs, artists, curators, dancers, writers, poets and performers tracing the roots and subsequent influence of the Blues into Psychedelia and the history of the droning, analogue synth, right through to glitchy, computer-based electronica and sampladelia... and a lot more from ten decades of astounding sounds!

If pre-war, down-home, Mississippi Blues next to great slabs of monolithic Krautrock or underground rock-tronica doesn't seem wrong to you plus the latest, cutting-edge acts live on stage then you'll love it...

'Psychedelectronica from inner and outer space'.

Live Acts:

Standard Planets:
Standard Planets create epic symphonies that effortlessly combine elements of monolithic Drone, caustic machine Funk, Late '60's Psych, Carpathian Hillbilly, Fourth world soundscapes, Bipolar sludge and Tectonic, Teutonic Krautrock.

These guys have paid their dues having played alongside Action Beat (Southern), Anne Shenton (Add N To X), Comanechi, John Callaghan (Warp), Die Die Die, Daedalus, Tim Exile, Max Tundra, Black Devil Disco Club, Joakim, Factory Floor, and Wet Dog. The Planets multi-instrumental live show sees the band sail a spatial voyage of refracted linearity focused through inter-dimensional, universal vibrations of all consuming resonant excess ie it will blow your mind and ya socks off!

They've released a self-produced album "Providers of Utopian Energy" recorded in various cavernous warehouses and basements throughout East London as well as being played by & lt; /strong> Gideon Coe on his 6 music show even though he doesn't normally play unsigned stuff as well as regular airings on Dandelion FM and Resonance FM.

To end 2010 they play Vice Magazine's issue launch at the Old Blue Last and in 2011 they play a big Ninja tune show case in Brighton... Come and see them before they go stellar... If you like stuff like Spacemen 3, Can, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Pretty Things or Wooden Shjips you'll dig this lot.

+ Lasers From Atlantis:
Following an epic support slot and now legendary gig with S.C.U.M and Bo Ningen in Shoreditch plus previous headlining slots at The Rest Is Noise in Brixton Bonanza has booked KJJ a flight with the Lasers From Atlantis who will transport NW1 on a quantum leaping trip to a blissfull Nirvana with oozing waves of transcendental, cosmic, psychedelic tones and tranquilizing melodies juxtaposed with heavy, droning lightning-bolts that have been beamed from the ether for your floating in space pleasure.

Having already notched up a couple of superb singles on Woven Tones Records expect to be hearing a lot more of these guys in 2010
Elsewhere 'The Lasers...' have been described as a 'Fresh Space-Psych/Avant Doom Quartet in need of basements, rooftops and observatories.'

Flip your wigs folks!

Johnny P

+Bonanza DJ Set (ResonanceFM)
