Hard to resist electro punk, Brighton art rock and three-minute pop songs.

Defiantly borderless and outward looking CHOPCHOP cook up their songs with a range of musical and lyrical ingredients and genres in the pot: punk, jazz, prog, electronica, soundscapes, spoken word, classic literature, philosophy and poetry – the works. Many of the songs bubble with the uneasiness of the times we are living in, the feeling of being at a crossroads, individually, as groups and as a species.

The Nature Centre plays three-minute pop songs, stuffed with ideas like a suitcase packed too late. Based in Birmingham, the Capital of Uncool, the band plays like nobody is watching, quoting freely from flowery psych, faded art rock cassettes, scratchy punk and arena weirdos.

Having only recently sprung into existence Beano Town Secret Police deliver high energy charismatic electro punk. Think Suicide and Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft.
