The Cribs at New Slang | A socially distanced show from Bloxx at Myu (Pryzm)

Hiya, we're not 100% when the club night will return, but we HAVE been announcing a few live shows to take place on Thursdays later on this year, including a mighty return from New Slang favs The Cribs. If these gigs don't happen on the advertised dates, they WILL happen on a rearranged date for 2021.

So do keep an eye on our socials. If you have tickets for to-be-rearranged-gigs, it helps us loads to hold on to your tickets until we know the new date. Get in touch after that. Don't miss out on announcements - turn on alerts from BanquetRecords on twitter, facebook and instagram.

The Cribs

Celebrating the release of their new album titled Night Network, the classic and inimitable trio The Cribs return to New Slang.

Night Network is as fresh, cathartic and vital as anything they’ve ever put out. There’s no weariness, no bitterness, just a clear desire to get back to doing what they do best – that unique blend of bittersweet melody, brutal lyrical honesty and riffs for days.

In a typically downplayed way, the band have honed in on what’s so special about The Cribs: really bloody good songs. Fans might well think this is their best album in a decade. So, once again all is right in Cribs world – or as much as all is right in any world in 2020 at least. The Cribs are romantics and they’re realists, and the balance, for a hot minute, nearly tipped in the favour of the latter. But now they return empowered, beholden to no one, on the greatest form and still screaming in suburbia.

Celebrating the release of their debut full length album titled Lie Out Loud, the excellent indie-poppers BLOXX return to Kingston to headline a socially distanced show at Myu.

“‘Lie Out Loud’ feels like a big moment for us, it’s a bit angsty and was actually the last song we wrote for our record, whilst we recorded the record, so it nearly didn’t even happen!” Vocalist Fee Booth explains. “I remember being so wildly annoyed that day because I was sitting around doing nothing and I just remember myself and Jenn Decilveo (our producer) shouting lyrics at each other and arguing over whether or not ‘lie out loud’ made any sense. It definitely does.”

Celebrating the release of their new album, IDLES return to Kingston to play at Pryzm.

The third full length album from the critically acclaimed and inimitable band is titled Ultra Mono. Following on from one of Banquet's fav albums of 2018, Joy As An Act Of Resistance. Massive, arena-ready post-punk influenced tunes with a 'no bullshit, no apologies' punk attitude whilst approaching and tackling the most important issues in society.

Sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record (including production contribution from Kenny Beats), the album doubles down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work. Not far beneath the surface of their self-admitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up clichés and spits them out as high art for the masses. This is momentary acceptance of the self. This is Ultra Mono.
