Well, well, well. Here we are again. In case you don’t already know the score, Hoersfest is a celebration of weird and wonderful bands curated by the easily excitable but basically harmless idiot behind Petrol Hoers. The selection process is entirely vibes-based so expect to see a big old mashup of different genres as well as classy decor, Scooter on shuffle between the bands and a free Kazoo for every attendee.
We’ve temporarily moved away from the all-dayer format while we get back into the swing of running gigs but we have a great 5-band lineup for you, featuring:
Petrol Bastard is a 2-piece techno-punk band- a terrible Tesco Value version of The Prodigy. Like the cast of Bottom beating each other up to a Vengaboys soundtrack.
The Sex Cripples
DIY cabaret duo from York – Kaitlin plays kazoo, bass, snare, cymbal and ukulele, Emily plays guitar, kick drum, dub siren and magical sample box, and if you squint your ears they sound like a real band.
The Paul Taylor Experience
Kazoo virtuoso. Slide whistle king. Genuine celebrity.
“If I can’t find the track I want to listen to because it doesn’t exist, I write it. Except recently, when I’ve just played piano and made memes.”
Petrol Hoers is the world’s only purveyor of “digital horsecore”, a blend of aggressive punk and noisy drum+bass but with a surreal horse flavour. Tom Robinson has described Petrol Hoers as “one of the oddest and most original artists its ever been my pleasure to come across in the last 15 years of bbcintroducing”.
