The Hope & Ruin
23rd June 2015

Look out Brighton: 90s post-punk-krautrockers Prolapse are back, in their first set of live shows since their 1999 hiatus.

Missed them the first time round? Prolapse formed in the summer of 1991 in Leicester “with the aim of being the most depressing band ever”. Their sound is a cacophony of shoegaze, punk and krautrock, underpinned by their ‘complete disdain for conventional song structure’. Their first EPs were released to critical acclaim, and they fast became favourites of John Peel, before disbanding after the release of their third album Ghosts of Dead Aeroplanes.

Support on the night comes from Brighton-based Slum of Legs. Signed to Tuff Enuff Records, who have released compilation EPs such as ‘Why Diet when you could Riot?’, the band combine Riot Grrl influences, a DIY ethos and energetic live shows. They are definitely one to watch.

For first-time listeners and long time fans alike, this is a show not to be missed!

About The Writer

I recently graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in Anthropology. Since moving back I have been happily reacquainted with Brighton’s idiosyncratic streets and colourful characters. I like writing and riding my bike around the city hunting for hidden treasures.
