+ STRAIGHT GIRL
+ Old Boy
Tuesday 22nd November 2022
For those who witnessed Benefits' debut Bristol show at Rough Trade, it was akin to a religious experience. A baptism of cathartic noise, power electronics and visceral, lyrical wit. A no-holds barred aural assault which left us all throbbing with glee. We are delighted to be presenting another opportunity to experience and witness Benefits in all their skull shattering beauty, this time in the Strange Brew bunker.
The past few months have seen a who's who of left-field music legends shouting about Benefits, and rightly so, Steve Albini declared his love, Frank Black declared his affection and a run of 1000 7"s sold out in less than 24 hours. Some say they are the second-coming hybrid of Crass, Throbbing Gristle et al, but with distinct, acerbic and honest lyricism. Benefits are the real deal, a voice for a generation of the pissed off and frustrated, preaching their own cathartic brand of industrial noise and poetry.
We urge you to join us for this one.
