UTR associates BEACH FUZZ (pictured) and HAUNTED FUCKING are playing a gallery show on Friday 19th September, at the 491 Gallery (491 Grove Green Road, E11 4AA) called SHAPELESS MISFORTUNE, in which a whole slew of up and coming London artists will be showing work with said theme. The private view is from 6pm, and the performances start at 9pm.
It is four pounds to get in, and you can bring your own poison, but you do need to put your name on a list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see some of you there!
Thanks to Starving Weirdos for an awesome show last night. Photos soon, I promise!

CHOPS are a wonderfully damaged club beat trio from Leeds, we have a split 12" with them and HELHESTEN in the birth canal and ready to squark into life imminently, if you need instant gratification however check out this new video for track 'ILL EAGLE' inspired by the mysterious CAKE DANCE ritual of the West Indies.
