Thank + Disguises
Thursday 4th April
Establishment, 81-83 Westgate, Wakefield, WF1 1EP. Gig is in the music hall – enter through the main door on Bank Street then turn left.
Thank are like the heaviest parts of LCD Soundsystem combined with the part on Back to the Future when Marty McFly pretends to be a Martian by playing incredibly loud sounds through a cassette walkman. We are thankful they exist. They have lyrical moments that stop you in your tracks and musicality that makes you want to dance and feature explosions of sheer noise.
Disguises are the newest of the Wakefield supergroups, formed from members of The Spills, Runaround Kids and Old House, three of the greatest bands out of the city in the last decade. Fronted by Jack Winn’s dark and engaging vocals surrounded by loops, and reinforced with a wall of noise from either side.
