Diagonal Records presents $hit & $hine at the Lexington

This looks like a bit of a corker of a night...

From the Lexington website:

Diagonal Records presents a mid-week shindig at London’s Lexington to coincide with the release of a remarkable four-tracker from headliners Sh*t and Shine. Famed for creating rollicking barrages of noise, guitar and sinister drum menace from anywhere between two and 20 sticksmen, DIAG004 represents something of a departure for the project’s creative force, Craig Clouse. The disorientating psychedelic effect remains, but the means are very different: this is sample-based rhythm music for dark clubs written by clowns. For this one-off London show, expect ear-splitting volume and a stage full of bunnies. 

Clouse’s men will be joined by Blood Music, who return to The Lexington for the first time since their Quietus show with My Disco in 2011. Fresh from their much-acclaimed EP on Diagonal, BM wield drum machines, guitars, drum kits, contact mics, noise and synthesisers to create pummelling tunnels of propulsive torque. 

Label-owner Powell will deploy turntables and records to smooth proceedings over between acts.
