Wednesday, January 26 Quietus present Anika, Gyratory System, Joseph Coward 7.45pm adv £6
One of the best records of last year, and one that crept up on the Quietus when we were entirely unawares, was the debut (on Invada/Stones Throw) by Bristol via Berlin artist Anika. We were so taken by her blend of dub, post-punk and strident, Nico-reminiscent vocals that we not only had Anika at No. 21 in our End of 2010 list, but also decided we needed to see her live, post-haste. We're therefore proud to announce that on January 26th we're once again taking over the Lexington on Pentonville Road to put on a live show from Anika & her band.

You can listen to Anika on Soundcloud here http://soundcloud.com/invadauk/sets/anika-inv099 and MySpace here http://www.myspace.com/anikainvada

In support we've long-time Quietus favourites Gyratory System, who are preparing to release their fantastic second album New Harmony via Angular Records in April... you can listen to them here: http://www.myspace.com/gyratorysystem

And to open proceedings we've a young chap we think you'll be hearing a lot more of this year. Connected to Factory Floor's genre-breaking Seven Sisters collective, Coward plays some fine mean, dark songs. You can listen to him here: http://www.myspace.com/josephcoward

And of course, the Quietus is playing records.
