Pint of 45 presents...
The Milk Race (EP launch) / Hunters / Gindrinker
The Milk Race
The Milk Race are Cardiff's most thrilling new band: a maelstrom of post-punk guitars and Moog abuse from former members of The Martini Henry Rifles, The IK+, Mo*Ho*Bish*O*Pi, Heck and various other daftly-named outfits. This show is the official launch of their debut EP – arrive early to receive a free Milk Race fanzine and badge!
The wayward cousins of artists on labels such as Warp, Temporary Residence and Rock Action, with a fine line in unforgettable melodies thumbing a lift with a truck driver who's a particular fan of leftfield noise. Or, as BBC Wales' Adam Walton puts it, "Like Slint backing Tears For Fears."
The National Museum Wales website, of all places, has got it about right: "Gindrinker play a minimal, almost industrial take on garage rock that tends to divide the opinions of the audience." Think The Fall meets Big Black; northern prose over harsh drum-machine and guitar backdrops.
