Gigwise launched its new monthly club night on the 4th July 2012 (1st Wednesday of every month) at Proud Galleries Camden. Hotly tipped headliners TOY blew the house apart to a 500 + strong crowd with their sonic twitches and murderous 60’s garage-scapes. Toy have already released their infective second single ‘Motoring’ which follows their debut 12” only double A-side release, ‘Left Myself Behind’ and ‘Clock Chime’, which is now on its 4th pressing. They have also supported The Horrors at the end of 2011 and have recently completed a sold-out residency at The Shackwell Arms in London.
Support came from Brighton’s Black black Hills, an inventive example of a band self aware and assured enough to balance their inspired creativity with shameless pop swagger. They wooed the crowd with their Nick Cave-esque story telling and new wave nuances against the back of angular guitar. Recent single ‘A Drowning’ was recently selected for BBC radio ones unsigned playlist.
