We're kicking off the New Year with an extra special bill featuring live slots from the hotly tipped anti-folk, hip hop punksters MILK KAN, backed by the redneck holler and bluegrass stomp of country swingers, ALBINO. As ever, we'll have a full crew of top DJs on board, including Niplsa, Editor, Bobby Bahuaus, Sim Kard Suzi and special guests, plus videos. And it's FREE all night!
A tequila shot of cheeky Cockney charm and boozed up punk rock infused with old-skool hip-hop, Milk Kan are a perfect fit for the lively, rambunctious crowd at Brixton's friendliest venue, the Prince Albert.
The anti-folksters have already notched up prestigious supports with The Strokes, Babyshambles, The Violent Femmes and Hayseed Dixie, while their ace new single, 'God with an iPod' has already hit the BBC's Top Ten indie charts.
"Think Squeeze meets Ian Dury (in a barn dance...) with a touch of UK hip-hop. Milk Kan's cockney wit and jaunty blue grass/doo-wop mishmash will have you dancing off your winter blues and grinning all the way through to the festival season." "Genius" Gigwise. DesignerMag feature Review
Packing guitar, bazouki, accordion, trombone and keyboards, Albino create a compelling blend of blues, country and folk, and already have two albums already under their collective belts: Latrine Blues (2005) and Bleeding Heart Yard (2006).
"Viscous blues harmonica and beaten acoustic guitars ...a redneck holler of an album full of country swing, bluegrass stomp and a deep fried folk" The-Mag "...Awash with grand sweeping melodies and vocals which bring to mind West Coast Elektra stuff like Tim Buckley and The Doors." Blang! Mag
Photography slideshow, festival footage and any weird stuff we find lurking on old video tapes.
