Lumer’s militant, undomesticated post-punk noise is certainly not an aberration, nor for the faint-hearted. This bunch hails from the gray industrial town of Hull, the smelly armpit of the United Kingdom according to popular opinion. For the band members of Lumer, however, it is like a warm bath: the perfect breeding ground for their no-nonsense, chilling and barb-wired sound. May the pummeling commence!
Nospray is the new sound in the Rotterdam underground, a collective of three individuals who rummage the darkest corners of the world for the coolest bands, to ensure that these bands play in Rotterdam. Nospray puts emphasis on contemporary punk, post-punk, garage and new wave music, but they will not shun other sounds that they believe are in that same spirit.
Nospray was founded by Timo Croes and Lukas Jansen of Pig Frenzy and Gary van Niks of local imprint Spazz Records. Since June 2019, the trio has brought myriad international bands to Rotterdam, for example, Powerplant (UK), Marbled Eye (US), Funeral State (UK) and Never (UK). They also represent burgeoning Dutch bands such as Daisy Daisy and Pressure Pact.
