No Spill Blood + StrugglesWithSyntax
Entry Requirements: All Ages
NO SPILL BLOOD are the killer synth-metal band you never knew you needed…
"The swaggering machismo of Queens Of The Stone Age dipped in razor-edged microchips with the black-hole weight of the Melvins and swung into the gurning mugs of lagered-up Kasabian fanboys.” - The Quietus
NSP will slay you with analogue synths, drums, bass guitar and manly shouting. Think Tangerine Dream meets Motorhead. John Carpenter covered by Converge.
“NSB make me feel like I've just beaten down an army of angry internet nerds with nothing but balloon animals – sea lions, mainly – and a rolled-up copy of Amiga Power from 1994. Totally epic.” - The Quietus
No Spill Blood currently record for Sargent House, home of Russian Circles, Earth and Boris. They’ve toured with Baroness, Mutoid Man and Deafheaven. No Spill Blood are also a Great Bunch of Lads.
Final words go to John Baizley of Baroness:
“In lieu of guitars, this trio used synthesizers, which were not only competitive against the more standard template, but in some ways allowed extrapolation, evolution, and improvement on the familiar sound. In less capable hands, the notion of a three-piece synth-driven heavy- rock/hardcore band could have led to a huge misstep in execution and presentation; but No Spill Blood had found a format that worked so well, the specifics of their setup are rendered irrelevant.”
Support comes from London’s Struggles with Syntax. This baby band (three gigs old at time of writing) offer weird beats, spikey guitars, driving bass, electronic burbles and the crazed vocal stylings of Jo Llewellyn Jones, the bastard son of Falco from Future of the Left and Zack de la Rocha. With their demented songs about Theresa May and wasps, they’ll leave you with a combined feeling of “fuck yeah!” and “eh?”
