The line-up for the fifth and final instalment of Howling Owl Record’s New Year New Noise has been revealed, with Giant Swan, Vessels, E B U, Moor Mother as well as loads of others, helping to see the event off in style. Here’s the full line up:
For the uninitiated, the Bristol label has held a new year celebration every January for the last 4 years in art gallery the Arnolfini, filling a whole weekend with forward thinking, noisy music, and thought-provoking discussion panels.
This year the event will be taking place between the 12th and 14th of January, and is being held at The Brunswick Club instead of the Arnolfini, due to the gallery having its funding cut.
Previous acts that have played the event include Girl Band, Spectres, The Naturals, LICE, Jesuits and Oliver Wilde.
The label announced last week that this would be the final instalment of the event, saying in a Facebook post:
“HALF A DECADE OF ART, NOISE AND REACTION. FIVE YEARS OF PUNCHING THROUGH THE CEILING. THE TIME IS RIGHT TO LAY A GOOD THING TO REST. EVERYTHING THAT NEEDED TO BE DONE HAS BEEN DONE. AND MORE. IT HAS BEEN A BLAST BUT THE CLAMP TIGHTENS FAST. LIMPING INTO TIRED PREDICTABILITY? NO. ART FOR THE ART NOT TO TICK FUNDING BOXES BECAUSE LOOK WHAT HAPPENS THERE. NOISE FOR THE NOISE NOT FOR THE ADVERTISERS BECAUSE THE PLUG IS NEVER FAR AWAY. REACTION FOR REACTION BECAUSE. A SELF DECLARED ERA COMES TO AN END. CREATE TO DESTROY. LET’S END THIS PROPER.
IT IS OVER NOW WHY CAN’T YOU SEE.”
