Six Organs Headline Psyche Rock Double Bill

Six Organs Headline Psyche Rock Double Bill

Six Organs of Admittance, Ben Chasney’s other band when he’s not busy fronting Comets on Fire, are headlining a double bill of psychedelia tonight at London’s Cargo.

Folk rock band Sunburned Hand Of A Man also appear tonight, though the groups ever changing line-up means their sound varies from gig to gig.

The group from Massachusetts formed in 1994 out of the disbanding of psychedilic punk band Shit Spangled Banner.

The gig tonight is an intimate warm-up show – before both bands head off to Butlin’s
Minehead for this years’ ATP Nightmare Before Christmas – where they will play on a bill headlined by Iggy Pop & The Stooges and Dinosaur Junior to name only two.

Six Organs and Sunburned also appear on the latest Uncut CD, free with the January issue. It’s a psyche special!

Six Organs of Admittance contribute “The Desert Is A Circle”, Sunburned Hand Of A Man offer “Adult Costume” and Ben Chasney’s Comets On Fire also appear on the compilation with the fantastic “Sour Smoke.”
