Wild Rocket presents a night of cosmic music from some of our favourite bands from around the country.
Percolator is an experimental rock band whose blend of hypnotic kraut techno and wall
of shoegazing guitar drones has been compared to Swans with a leaning towards NEU!’s
krautrock driven rhythms. Consisting of John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Bass, Synths), and founding members Eleanor Myler (Drums, vocals) and Ian Chestnutt (guitar vocals), the trio have spent the last 5 years transforming themselves into one of the most intriguing and melodically arresting bands in
Ireland at the moment. Their debut album SESTRA was released on PENSKE Recordings
Based in Dublin, Ireland, Wild Rocket have been developing their combination of heavy psych and kraut-infused space punk for the past five years. Since the release of their debut LP Geomagnetic Hallucinations in 2014, the band has gone from strength to strength, performing at the Distorted Perspectives and Reverberation Festivals in Ireland and the Hostsabbat Festival in Norway. Wild Rocket have shared stages with internationally renowned contemporaries such as Slomatics, Ufomammut, Earth and The Cosmic Dead.
WILD ROCKET have gained a reputation for pummelling and immersive live shows laden with infectious energy. This energy has been captured perfectly on their second album DISSOCIATION MECHANICS, released on ART FOR BLIND Records (July 7th 2017, LP/CD). The record was engineered and produced by the DEAF BROTHERS, having previously worked on acclaimed records from No Spill Blood, Alarmist & Meltybrains?.
Dissociation Mechanics explores themes of deep sea and deep space, the repetitive cycles of depression and the self-destruction of civilisations. The subtext of the album is influenced by the inability of the human race to learn from past mistakes and break calamitous cycles, instead looking to alternate dimensions for escape rather than efforts to change the observed reality. To put it more bluntly, it's all about getting through life with savage riffs.
From a wooden shack on the hallowed ground of Knocknagore, HawkBastard conjure plumed prayers to Puca, swoops of psyched out synth and jagged 6 string mantras driven by hypnotic rhythms. Embrace the Raptor
