For 25 years already Brian Gibson (bass) and Brian Chippendale (drums, vocals) have been making artistically approved musical violence under the name Lightning Bolt. The duo have their crusty headquarters in an industrial squat in Rhode Island – at walking distance from the art school were they first crossed paths – where they improvise/compose noise punk as if it were pop music. Famously playing in front of (rather than on) the stage, Lightning Bolt audiences were wearing professional ear protection long before free ear plugs existed. These guys are often called one of the loudest rock outfits in existence, ahead of the curve since day one and definitely in the category of “your favorite band's favorite band”.
Lightning Bolt’s seventh full-length album 'Sonic Citadel' is the first to be recorded in a studio, revealing the solid structure of their tracks just that little bit more honor but leaving the virtuoso bass, frenzied drums, corrupted vocals and all other ragged edges as rough as 25 year ago. Gibson and Chippendale have become masterful musicians, but their energy is still so full of fluorescent youthful curiosity that both new and long-time fans are in for an intense trip.

How does one begin to describe dj. flugvél og geimskip? First of all, she’s not really a DJ, despite the name, which translates to DJ Airplane and Spaceship. Steinunn Harðardóttir is a polymath—a singing synth and drum machine wizard with an impressive visual arts repertoire. We speak through the magic of video chat as she relaxes in front of an ocean-themed mural in her artist commune, sipping both coffee and tea. Her cheerful temperament translates easily through the electronic space.
