If you happen to come across Robin Stewart and Harry Wright in a record store, you'll probably find them in the punk rock section. Their music under the Giant Swan moniker however, is a whole lot more electronic—and equally aggressive. The techno punks from Bristol have a 15-year-long history of not making it with indie punk rock bands, before meeting each other through skateboarding. A mutual decision was then made; to go mental behind synths and drum machines. Their performances are not for the faint of heart; they play opposite each other, often mess up the bass and volume levels and scream into the mic, proudly abusing the reverb effects. They can bring a house down.
As if Giant Swan weren't enough, dubstep pioneer and underground bass messiah The Bug has also been announced for the same night. Opening for both acts is Italian ambient/drone producer Mai Mai Mai. Hopefully Romantso will still stand the next day.
