British indy label Basick Records put on their own night in London, featuring instrumental tech metal(/cheese) one-piece Chimp Spanner (yes, he did bring a backing band), excellent French atmospheric tech metallers Uneven Structure and French mentalist The Algorithm. We went along to bang our heads in 17/8 time signature.

Six things we learned from when Basick Records brought their bands to London

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s been worth the wait.

Mother I
08 February 2011

by Andy Parker

Emphasising the true meaning of the phrase progressive when it comes to music, Brighton’s Lithurgy have travelled across Europe with the likes of Textures, Ephel Duath, and TesseracT, as well as nailing a much-praised performance at Bloodstock Open Air 2010 along the way. Mother I is the band’s latest attempt to elevate their profile to match that of those would-be peers. [Read more →]
