Sunday 1st May at Stereo… Night School presents MAYDAY: The Number Ones + Breakfast Muff + Anxiety + Mordwaffe Wednesday 20 April

MAYDAY Night School into the Night. Til LATE.

mayday 2
There can be none other. The Number Ones hail from Dublin but their permanent home is your heart. With a background in psychedelic folk and hardcore, The Number Ones thankfully sound nothing like either: theirs is a pure power pop, like The Undertones or any of the Good Vibrations groups or The Beatles with distortion pedals, or the Buzzcocks on a Yellow Pills compilation. Following stone cold classic singles, The #1s’s debut album on Static Shock is like 10 Jaegerbombs slammed straight to your brain, with all the sweet sadness and sugar-rush melody that suggests. The 4 lads’ last show at the note was a riot, let’s make this a night to remember. Sean Goucher, Cian Nugent, Eddie Kenrick, Conor Lumsen what’s the crack? Wait that’s not right..

Glasgow’s wonderkids Breakfast Muff are riotous, a beautiful day-glo punk crash making it up as they go along. Or maybe there’s a grand plan, unveiling itself so fast and with such a sharp, popped punk loving dagger if you blink you’re already enthralled. With their 2nd album Rainbow Yawn on Fuzzkill Records, BF are the best friends everyone wished they have, a distorted colourful ooze that welds melody, anger, joy, guitars and joie de vivre.

Formed in the later half of 2015, the Glasgow-stewed quadraped malignants have already faced being banned from venues, thrown off bills, chained to railings, been subject to passing diseases and doused in drinks. Members of Pennycress, The Lowest Form, Apostille, Herbert Powell, Helena Celle stick a skewer in a crusty mainline of protest peace punk a-la Rudimentary Peni / Crass, lick the tip of fast-paced falling-down-the-stairs HXC with Crudos in mind and war dispoetical about darkness, wetness and ripped crotches. Chaos with a capital URK.

Bubbling over from an unnameable group of Glasgow based reprobates, Mordwaffe are another alignment of troubled humans David Roeder, Musho Fernandez, Matt Walkerdine, Ruari MacLean, Jess Higgins. For their second show, Mordwaffe’s jams will be kicked out, a Velvets klang spearheaded into the night coalescing around Roeder’s guiding light. Off kilter with plenty underneath the distorts-fuzz.

Reinventing the narratives of sex and gender, Diane Torr developed her work in performance art, film, installation and photography, particularly within the context of NYC from 1976-2002. She garnered acclaim as a prominent gender activist through her teaching of the Drag King (later known as Man for a Day) workshops. Man for a Day by Berlin filmmaker, Katarina Peters, premiered at the Berlinale Film Festival in 2012.

As a queer maker, programmer, and facilitator they are concerned with uncovering layers of shame (internalised and societal) around self-expression.

WestGAP is an anti-poverty community group run by and for people in Glasgow who have first hand experience of living in poverty. Since 1997 we’ve been providing a free, independent and confidential advice service focusing on welfare rights, as well as providing support with housing problems, fuel poverty, homelessness and a broad range of other issues. We are totally independent, are not funded by government, and are not part of any political party or organisation. Our service is open to all and completely free.

WestGAP is run entirely by volunteers, and we depend on donations to keep our doors open. At a time when the rights of the most vulnerable residents of our city are being eroded, it’s essential that community advice services continue to exist, to support claimants in defending themselves against ill-considered policies and unfair decisions. All proceeds from this show will go directly to WestGAP, and will support the organisation’s basic running costs: rent, utilities, photocopying, stamps.

You can also become a member via the website, and get the tickets cheaper :-)
