WEIRDSVILLE & Dirty Water Records\nSaturday 9thJune 7pm till 2am @ The Finsbury Pub\n* the Scaners (Fr) *\n* The Jack Cades *\n* More Kicks *\n* DJ 45 party with Mr A & Miss A (Weirdsville)*\n£8.50\n£10\nTHE SCANERS\nOn December 16, 2017 the Pentagon officially confirmed that there was, in fact, a $22 million US government program to collect and analyze anomalous aerospace threats government-speak for UFOs and aliens.\nOver the water in Lyon, France The Scaners didn't need any official acknowledgment of this, as it would appear from the band's eponymous debut LP that they've had first-hand knowledge all along. And they might, perhaps, have been co-conspirators, riding shotgun in various spacecraft, playing a sci-fi synth-punk rock game of cat and mouse and somehow evading the US government's Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program.\nNow it's 2018 and the crackpots and tin-foil hat brigade have had the last laugh. The Scaners' time is now! They're ready to launch their sonic full-scale abduction of planet Earth.\nWith extraterrestrial titles like Checkpoint Planet, No Place In Space, We Want To Talk To Your Leader and Flying Fuck, this album is certainly not from the traditional, third-dimensional garage-punk reality. Yes, it has the mainframe DNA of The Ramones and The Dickies, but draws heavily on classic fourth-dimensional synth spirits like Devo and Suicide, coupled with modern acolytes like The Spits and Useless Eaters.\nTHE JACK CADES\nRhythm & Blues, Garage Punk, Blues... Twangy stuff... Call it what you want !\nMORE KICKS\nWhat happens when you take a pop song, tear it to pieces and start again?\nMore Kicks is an explosion that will hit you in the stomach and make your heart beat faster. \nPop can be dumb; garage can be clever; punk can be fresh; rock and roll can be revitalised.\nMore Kicks is the feedback in the riff, the distortion on the mic and the strain for the high note. \nYou rip it up and then you put it back together. You watch it go up in flames and then you rebuild.\nMore Kicks is a pop explosion.\nBrought to you by Mr A & Miss A\
