TRUMANS WATER

Play at Islington Mill Sunday 12th December 2010. Jess Higgins and Matthew Walkerdine made this Poster. Sex Hands, Toucans and a very special new band featuring members of gropetown, Ultimate Thrush and Divorce also play.
TRUMANS WATER were one of the  progenitors of what some people call 'noise-pop' and released a string of amazing records and tapes throughout the 1990's that people like Thurston Moore and Beck often championed. They have a brand new LP on asthmatic kitty that sounds as vital, as intense, as lovable as ever.

GOOD GRIEF! is now open

at SOUP KITCHEN, Spear Street (off Stevenson Square).


To celebrate, we are sharing a mix we made for Good Grief! subscribers in October. If you subscribe now, or get someone a subscription for a christmas present (which, if you love them, you will) you'll get a mix by Nick Ainsworth of Former Bullies/Dinner Party/Feel Right fame. Nick will be joining us at the Deaf Institute this very Thursday night to play records at Suffering Jukebox.
