Freestyler fabulousness

Gnarwolves , Brighton’s punked-up noise bringers, are live at The Craufurd Arms this Monday evening.

Can we suggest you replace that start of the week at home, with a night out in Wolverton?

A few familiar faces will be up in the support slot – MK’s own feisty quartet, The Get Gone.

The band is in the middle of laying down the debut album, which is set for release later this year, and follows on from their 2013 E.P, Stories and Ruses.

Capdown’s Keith Minter has resumed his role at the production desk.

The band promise to lay bare a decent amount of the new material at this show.

“We’re stoked to be playing with Gnarwolves and getting to play some new material before we record,” bassist Robin told us.

“We saw them play at Slam Dunk festival a couple of years back and they smashed it.

“They play really good melodic thrash and punk, but with great songs.

“The drummer plays in bare feet. Nutter!

“It’s a Monday night, but worth a trip out...”

>This Thursday evening, Stanley Odd will be at the venue.

They hail from auld reekie are temporarily swapping the old capital for the concrete of MK as part of a UK and Irish tour.

Apparently, band pastimes include ‘Getting mad wi it’ and ‘Arguing over whether it’s hip hop or not.’

Joining the sextet on the night will be Lucan Mills, a rap ace from Winchester, but now ensconced in the new city.

Also on the bill and yours in exchange for the fiver entry fee will be Ali in the Jungle.

> On Friday night, Beatcheck brings The Freestylers to the haunt. Nice work.

The Beatcheck Monkey is ‘ape-y’ to have the clan perform for us.

“We are uber excited to have such an iconic act come and play in such an intimate environment, and that we’ve bagged you lot an exclusive classics set!” he said.

Aah, yep, the set – it’s a fab ‘old to new’ delivery by the pivotol underground dance collectives.

Want a couple of random facts to wow your pals while queuing for a pint on the night? Freestylers played their first ever gig right here in MK, at The Sanctuary, and they were the first full electronic act to play live on Top of the Pops!

Captain Flatcap are up in support – a trio of dirty farmers with a maelstrom of sounds... and some squelch!

Tickets are £13 in advance, more on the door.
