INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK: WDR!
Circus Cannon + Oh Maddie + Memory Boy + Children Of The Fuzz
Entry Requirements: 18+
Due to having way too many amazing bands to fit into one night we've managed to blag another show for Independent Venue Week 2019!
Our friends Circus Cannon return to Bassment to warp your minds with more psychedelic treats!
'Circus Cannon are a London based psychedelic four piece who aim to reach sonic bliss through pounding drums and explosive guitars. The band was formed through a shared love of experimentation and deafening volu,es, and so they carved out their signature sound in disused buildings playing mantra like jams that built in intensity until reaching a brutal crescendo'.

Local hero's Oh Maddie are the perfect example of just how far the Chelmsford music scene has evolved in the last few years. Now playing as a 3 piece and with brand new music under their belt we can't wait to bring them back to Bassment to play for us for the first time!
'Pretty damn special' - Clash Magazine
Essex based 3 piece Memory Boy first played for us earlier in 2018 supporting TV Smith, they blew us away then and we can't wait for them to do the same again!
Children Of The Fuzz
Chelmsford’s newest riff lords have joined the party! These dudes have only been together a few months but are already causing a stir in the local scene. Get down early for some serious fuzz!
Plus WDR DJs spinning all your favourite garage/psych classics throughout.

Four unreasonable villains join forces to suck the squashed-up sound out of a super-massive black hole and stretch it into raw, primal songs, just for you. Expect pounding drums, glacial synths and celestial guitars. A good old slam
'Brilliant' - BBC 6 Music 'An instant classic' - Radio X 'Whiskey drenched Rock'n'Roll' - NME
Think Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen arm wrestling as Springsteen and Tom Waits aggressively goad them on. Add a pinch of The White Stripes, a squeeze of Future Islands and perhaps even a twist of The Killers, and serve it up in three and a half minute slices of angsty pop.
