We are excited to announce that Anthroprophh and Shit & Shine are joining Bong, Sex Swing, Sly and the Family Stone and others on The Quietus stage at Desert Fest on 25th April.
This is what they say:
Anthroprophh is the new(ish) project of Paul Allen of legendary stoner-rock band, The Heads. Their sound is a brilliant fusion of "kosmische drone and acid-frazzled guitar workouts" and is sure to be a hit in the intimate Underworld venue on Camden High Street. Says Joseph Burnett: "Anthroprophh essentially encapsulate the sound of modern psych-rock, as espoused by all those bands: it's heavy but subtle, driving but fleet-footed, taking in a range of moods and atmospheres, the kind of music you can head-bang to gleefully in a mosh pit, or be serenaded by as you while away a sleepless, hash-hazed night."
Shit and Shine, the brain child of Todd impresario Craig Clouse, "have been churning out hulking sonic spasms of unrelenting, loosely structured noise since 2004’s limited edition LP You’re Lucky To Have Friends Like Us... frequently featuring no more than guitars, oh, and about ten drummers." Says Cook: "SAS have crafted a real exploration of what it is to be alive; brutal, uncomfortable, often vial and deranged."

The legend that is Anton Newcomb from Brian Jonestown Massacre has done an amazing remix of Goat's Hide from the Sun exclusively for a great Fuzz Club compilation
You can listen to the track here via Noisey
The press release for the compilation reads:
THE REVERB CONSPIRACY VOL.3
(OUT 25th January 2014)
Fuzz Club Records and the Reverb Appreciation Society are set to co-release The Reverb Conspiracy Volume III on the 25th January 2014. As usual, the compilation will feature some of the best acts of the Psych scene on its side of the continent.
From the very start in 2012, The Reverb Conspiracy was a catalyst moment of the European Psych Nouveau movement. It brought together young bands from all over the continent, sparking a creative and professional synergy among many European artists. A turning point was probably the first Reverb Conspiracy Tour, which most of the bands from the compilation joined to perform a successful showcase a-la Stax Records in the 60s, in many European capitals, including an epic two day sold out festival at the Shacklewell Arms in London. That was also the year of first Liverpool
Psych Fest. Since then, Psych festivals and new bands have been sprouting all around the “Old World". The fifteen outfits taking part to the third volume – including Goat, Lola Colt and Singapore Sling – are representative of the impressive diversity and quality of a scene that is much broader than its definition. While all of them are certainly inspired by Psychedelia, each one of them incorporates different elements of Blues, Folk, Rock & Roll, Stoner, Kraut Rock, Electronica, Noise, Ambient and more. All is impeccably delivered in a pure and honest DIY approach that is reminiscent of the early days of the punk era.
A double album, the Reverb Conspiracy Volume III will be limited to 1200 numbered copies, white vinyl with gate-fold cover.
For the third time, the cover was created by iconic Icelandic artist and band member of Dead Skeletons, Jon Saemundur, aka Nonni Dead.

For tickets and information:
Time Out magazine have put Goat - Commune as their 4th best album of 2014.
'Whereas some of this year’s finest albums drew heavily on real-life experience, this was a portal to another world entirely: a dimension of spiralling grooves, monstrous psychedelic freak-outs and cult-like chants. ‘Commune’ was a 40-minute masterpiece of cosmic escapism that sounded like nothing else from this year (or this universe)’
