Janka Nabay & The Bubu Gang + Blood Sport

Qu Junktions and Howling Owl invite some musical friends for this Saturday night dancefloor doozy featuring cross-talking rhythms, buoyant melodic mantras and surging electronic undercurrents.


From West Africa via New York comes Janka Nabay & The Bubu Gang, an unstoppable Afro-synth express train signed to David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label: the folk rhythms of Janka’s native Sierra Leone transposed to a laser-guided electronic template of drum machine kicks, twitching analogue keys and propulsive bass, all conducted through Janka’s kinetic vocalist-animateur presence.

From Sheffield, and for the very last time in these parts, come Blood Sport: the pulverising post-techno guitar/drum/electronics trio are sadly calling time on their adventures in rhythm and sound, and having declared Bristol their ‘second home’ following a string of memorably sweaty sessions in recent years, don’t miss them firing up the engine for this glorious final circuit.

Bristol’s Worm Disco Club DJs warm the plates with some worldly, wobbly percussive selections from early on.
