On the night, we will also have the pleasure to see WANKOSLOP in their bizarro noise performance-art wank from UMBILICAL TENTACLE members Yuka Discobeans and Nik Kennedy.

WANKOSLOP create surreal rituals of tension and beauty amongst waves of textural distortion and dark synth tones. https://www.facebook.com/yuka.discobeans?fref=mentions
