About The Event

★ I.A.D. – The theatre of cruelty beckons with its potential for acute sonic revelation

★ I.A.D. – Are a post-apocalyptic art rock band

★ I.A.D. – All hail from Barry, S. Wales. A once thriving seaport & holiday resort gone to seed. Famous now for being the resting place of Fred West’s ashes & home to the once-popular TV sitcom ‘Gavin & Stacey’.

★ I.A.D. – Are:

○ i. Luker Koenig – Buzzsaw guitar & Electronics

○ Christian Sargent – Shamanic Howl

★ I.A.D. – Offer a ‘Rare Sacrament in the age of sterile, anodyne, business plan muzak. In fact, when I.A.D. flex their collective muscle it’s the aural equivalent of being witness to a 3-way mash-up of The Stooges, The Jesus Lizard, and Joy Division. Pure, unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll noise!!! As the potent brew of sledgehammer subtleties and featherweight fury erupts Sargent is slave to the sonic assault. A spastic acrobat with jerking limbs & asylum antics, diseased and desperate the agony & ecstasy of the Human Condition.

★ I.A.D. – Are building a fearsome reputation on the S. Wales toilet circuit with their explosive, unpredictable & energetic freak show.

★ I.A.D. – Sins of insanity, enlightenment, insight, death & destruction. They aim to exhume rock‘n’roll’s festering, fetid corpse to administer one final brutal kicking.

★ I.A.D. – Are driven by a contempt for youth’s misappropriation & complacency regarding rock ‘n’roll’s awe-inspiring & transcendental power.

★ I.A.D. – Hold a mirror to their audience & reflect back a distorted, fractured vision of their wildest fantasies & deepest fears.

★ I.A.D. – Access distant brainlands & return laden with songs of salvation & sorrow.

★ I.A.D. – Are old enough to know better but better enough to know more.

★ I.A.D. – Are…. The Antidote
