Happening the club, November edition

The ‘Happening’ clubnight has now established itself as the grooviest place to sample the delights of the Shindig! universe. The world’s leading, most dedicated magazine for 1960s and ’70s music, the Happening website is the modern day equivalent of Shindig! - an online magazine for retro-classicism-inspired new music, clothes and events. A joint operation in conjunction with Sweet but Deadly Promotions, Happening has become its own little rock’n’roll haven. Come meet, greet and party with like-minded souls ’til your head explodes with delight!

Live Bands:
Debut album ‘If You’re Satisfied You Are Dead’ is out Monday, November 5th! Creating a rock'n'roll noise that's made when MENSA collides with ASBO... "The November Five combine the driving sneer of Earl Brutus, some of the atmospherics of the Arcade Fire if they weren't twig-stroking Canadians, and some very British bombast - in The November Five's hands, guitars do, very much, squall" say The Quietus. "If you like the incendiary music of The MC5, The Stooges, The Birthday Party, Jim Jones Revue or The Cramps then go download their debut single, ‘Closure b/w Flame’, and look out for next single, ‘Awake in a Daze b/w It's Not Enough’, hitting the stores (real and online) very soon. Even better still, go watch then live as you will not be disappointed in the slightest" say Shindig!.

The Hypnotic Eye are a South London-based five piece Flower-Punk band, who play abrupt, slightlydelic garage, haunted by Brill-Building pop & Musique Concrète. The Hypnotic Eye take their name from George Blair’s cult classic horror film. Known for their prismatic dress and engaging performance, the group are fronted by 19 year old, Grace Lightman. The band’s debut-LP “The Optical Sound of The Hypnotic Eye” is complete, but unreleased. An independent limited 7” pressing of “Marianne”, featuring Rhys Webb & Coffin Joe, taken from the album, is available.
A trio living within the dark heart of on the edge post-psychedelia. Dark Bells spin a beguiling web of haunting yet melodic sounds built on the bricks of post-punk with the atmosphere of an act you might have found on 4AD in 1983. Their focus is creating a truly unique sound inclusive of soundscapes. Dark Bells are a band where each instrument works with and around the others creating something unique that sets them aside from anyone else. Innocent at times, truly captivating at others.
