with FUCK OFF BATMAN, THE WORM POET, MEN DIAMLER (aka MARIO VENDREDI) + FREEZE PUPPY (Sat 18th / 8pm / £4)
The Klinker is London's longest running, most consistently challenging and downright hyperactive (three events every week!) call-to-arms for performers from across the board. Film maker, performance artist, poet and self-declared dubious musician, Hugh Metcalfe has rallied the troops for over 23 years now and shows no signs of slowing down...
This sees a visit to Bristol from FUCK OFF BATMAN, a quartet led by Metcalfe with drummer Jonny Mitchell (Nought), bassist Darren Morris (otherwise keyboard player with Gabrielle!) and poet Sibyl Madrigal on backing vocals (as well as dancing and squealing). Enter worm world with the WORM POET - some say she's too worm; plus naturally, your compere, the inimitable CABBAGEHEAD.
Also tonight, for the first time, the region's two most idiosyncratic talents are put together on the same bill. FREEZE PUPPY and the artist formerly known as MARIO VENDREDI are two peas in an odd-pod - look forward to accessible, expertly crafted songs from two top notch performers, all distorted through a wildly unpredictable prism.
Join us for an invigorating and surreal Saturday night, complete with a healthy dose of the unexpected. http://www.klinkerclub.info/
