Battery Hens are a favourite of ours, they’re a pure brutal noise outfit not for the feint of heart. With pedals taking up the entire stage, Battery Hens set out for one thing and that’s to make noise. Grunge, space rock, noise, punk, the Hens intertwine between it all leaving a mesmerising, tsunami of audio. They’re currently recording their debut EP which we expect to be every bit as noisy as they are live. File next to the likes of Pixies, Grinderman, Sonic Youth, Melvins and Metz.
Check their set from last year as well as their Soundcloud. Battery Hens will be playing the ‘Drunken Sailor’ stage upstairs of the Social Club at 13.30pm.
