Meet The Sloths Presents…. Strange Cages @ Green Door Store 23/9/15

17/04/2015 By James McLarnon

Strange CagesA personal and long held belief is that a midweek, indie/rock night at The Green Door Store would go down very well, in the same way that the weekly Donuts night has become a hip-hop right of passage for Brighton’s students. A brief look down the list of artists slated to be played on the night indicates that Meet The Sloths will likely fit that bill.

Undoubtedly, the highlight of the evening will come from fast rising garage rock 3-piece Strange Cages. We first came across them at a downright riotous early afternoon set at 2014’s version of 234 Festival, where they damn near tore the roof off with an early cover of Ty Segall’s ‘Girlfriend.’ Transporting that energy to a midnight stage time should be perfect.

 

Their own songs sound the part as well, the recently released ‘Pony’ recalling 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster’s beautiful way with Cramps and Birthday Party influences. Otherwise, they claim influence from many of the places you would expect of a young garage rock band: The Thirteenth Floor Elevators, The Stooges and Television. What sets them apart from a crowded Brighton garage rock scene is one of the best frontmen to emerge from these parts in some time, Charlie’s cherubic features bely a rock monster, a dichotomy that is reminiscent of the aforementioned Ty Segall’s live ouvre.

And of course as with all Green Door Store club nights, entry is FREE.
