With some new releases on the way, we can’t wait to see what these guys have to offer. 

Along side them will be good friends Tom Dyer, founder of Acorn tapes and Jack Martin presenter of the Slang in Trace KMAH show. These two are no strangers to our events and we are delighted to have them back for this one. Tom will be playing an early 2000’s Hip Hop set that definitely should not be missed.

Zeitgeist // Body Hound // Tall Talker

This is going to be our last Leeds show of 2017, and we are delighted to be joined by two of Yorkshire's finest bands Body Hound and Tall Talker in the basement of our noble city's favourite left-of-centre hangout.

If you aren't familiar with Body Hound, then get familiar. Deliciously intense, petrifyingly virtuosic and groovier than posh timbre decking, they have been stalwarts of Yorkshire progressive music since 2013. This is also the last show they are playing this year, and they'll be playing some shiny new material for us too.

Tall Talker are a younger outfit, but have been blowing people away in the North over the last couple of years with their high energy, riff saturated math rock.

Do yourself a solid. Come and join us on a voyage into the weird and unknown.

Engine 'Cucumber Water EP' LEEDS album launch

Engine 'Cucumber Water EP' LEEDS album launch

Well well well, it's finally here. After endless quantities of Dr. Oetker, St Cervois and other pillars of decadence, ENGINE are finally releasing their debut vinyl 'Cucumber Water'. 

Come join us for a night of music, dance, live visuals, fine art and electrolytes at Hyde Park Book Club.

ENGINE will be performing live.

Entry is £5 OTD and the 'Cucumber Water' 12'' vinyl will be on sale for £10.

“'Cucumber Water' is the culmination of four year's worth of psychedelicisms festering on ENGINE's part in Leeds. Synesthetic sounds looking to the future combine with introverted songwriting from a bygone era. Fresh yet strangely familiar, the tracks have been hot-housed, shelved, re-jigged, reworked and now will finally be released for your delectation. Executed with sincerity, clinicism and cynicism in equal parts, this is your opportunity to get your hands on it in tangible form. 150 copies will be available.”

"Rather than a Nick Cave album, they should be named after something by the Jesus Lizard or Mudhoney, such is the monstrous noise they make. Singer Harry Waugh bawls cavernous Palma Violets gang chants over slabs of psych rock sludge that, at their most melodic, resemble the Stone Roses, Spiritualized and the Sex Pistols in a monster truck pile-up and often build to crescendos they'll only be able to get on to record by demolishing the studio on cue"

Think Tank #003: A Place For Your Head

Think Tank returns to Hyde Park Book Club for another evening of ambient introspection!

The students are back, and the post-Freshers haze has officially descended. With so many events happening in a city that feels busier by the year, it's easy to forget that we all need some time to recharge our batteries.

Come and soothe those mental muscles :) 

LINEUP: 

MEMOTONE 
With a string of releases on Black Acre Records, and collaborations that include the likes of Phaeleh and Dmitry Evgrafov, we are truly honoured to welcome Bristol's memotone to the Tank. Returning to Leeds for the second time (following a blistering performance for Permahigh last year), Memotone will be combining layers of samples, live electronics and multi-instrumentation to craft a truly immersive ambient experience. Not to be missed!

Artificial Barriers - the pilot episode

Starting in 2018, Artifical Barriers will be at Hyde Park Book Club on the last Wednesday of every month. But since we're so excited to get started, we've decided to do one sooner!

We've love to see you down for our pre-launch on the 14th November. Entry is free, so come along and enjoy the weird but wonderful sounds!
