Welcome Living Leg-end - The Fall, Hookworms and More To Hit Up Kentish Town

Set to take over Kentish Town Forum in January, Club The Mammoth - a successful independent promotions company - have announced their line-up for their kickstart to 2017. The Fall are gonna headline it, playing their London shows since their storming 4 night residency in April at the Highbury Garage. Obviously, I don't need to explain why The Fall are the perfect climatic close to an all-dayer - after nearly 40 years, Mark E Smith and his band are as great as ever; last year's Dedication Not Medication is one of their strongest songs in years.

But who's to back the legendary Mancunians? Let's start at the bottom of that poster. No, not the promising promise of "much more t.b.a". Goat Girl are Rough Trade Recs' hottest new signings, bringing together all the best elements of grunge and garage rock, already making waves in the alternative scene. 

Future Of The Left are a Welsh rock and roll band rising from the ashes of McLusky. Their noisy fifth album came out earlier this year, and whilst you might not have heard them, those riotous basslines are worth the ticket price alone. 

Last, but certainly not least; Hookworms. Our 2014 album of the year winners. The Leeds band are very much still the most exciting thing in the country, with their whirring brand of futurist proto-punk (that description makes sense, I swear). Their live show is magnificent, and they've definitely got an album on the way at some point - with bassist MB releasing his own XAM Duo ambient album next month.

Tickets are available here, so come get down with us for an evening of noisy, noisy guitars. (And it's not on a school night, so you've got no excuses)
