[Oct 6, 2012] 93MillionMilesFromTheSun, His Name Is Codeine, The Carousels (Aberdeen)

Recommended Posts

Yellow Elevator presents.....


Doncaster’s 93MillionMilesFromTheSun not only manage to dampen stereotypes, but obliterate them. Combining layered, textured guitars over an array of effects and choral vocals, 93MillionMilesFromTheSun is one of those bands that, while evoking memories of the likes of Slowdive in their heyday or even a more sonically enhanced Maps, stands tall and proud in their own right due to the dazzling range of variation across their music. Another key element of 93MillionMilesFromTheSun’s extensive make-up is that not only do they express a desire to take their sonic experimentation one step further, but they also never lose sight of the fact that beneath all the reverb and delay lay actual songs that would sound just as affecting stripped down. The band's record 'Northern Sky' is a big-seller in One Up Records.

His Name Is Codeine

Hailing from the north east of Scotland and sharing a love of reverb drenched soundscapes and dark experimental rock in the vein of the Velvet Underground and The Black Angels, His Name Is Codeine complete the line-up. Formed in 2010, the trio have been gaining a reputation for their intense live shows, blending simple pounding drums and bass, with effect laden guitars and a three part vocal harmony to create a formidable wall of sound.

The Carousels

The Carousels have taken the Byrdsian/Teenage Fanclub ethic on board and have constructed a repertoire of expertly crafted songs bursting with soaring harmonies and melodies. The band will be showcasing songs from their recently released album ‘Sweet Northern Light’ which is now available through the legendary Northern Star Records at the following link: www.northernstarrecords.com/node/148

Tunes on the night will be provided by 'Beauty Through The Noise' DJ/anorak, Ross McNeill, who'll take you all on a dirty, psychedelic noise trip with a little bit of country thrown in for good measure. Expect to hear plenty of tracks from the 'new psychedelic movement' from bands like The Black Angels, The Laurels, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Black Ryder, Black Market Karma, The Underground Youth and The Lost Rivers, not to mention classics by the 13th Floor Elevators, The Velvet Underground and Spacemen 3. Also expect to hear classics from The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Gram Parsons, Gene Clark and many many more......

Three amazing bands. Cracking tunes.

Five of your Scottish pounds.

Saturday 6th October, Tunnels 2. Doors 8pm. Be there.
