“Just when you think you might be getting a handle on this band they hit you with ‘Curtains at the Mausoleum’. With it’s slow lilting start and strung out arrangement which grabs you gently yet firmly and takes you off into the psychedelic clouds of unknowing as the matter from the explosions of a thousand rock planets coalesce into a ten minute epic which will just have you gasping as you take in the broad vista presented in front of you. Then it intensifies to the extent that you think your head’s going explode before bringing you down in an analgesic descant that kinda leaves you in a quivering mess on the floor. Next level… next dimension, and I never even got to mention the sitar.” PSYCH INSIGHT MUSIC
Possessor are a London three-piece who take the crushing punch of heavy metal and inject it with a vicious shot of punk energy. The band’s mixture of styles is underpinned with a desire to have people experience their music in the same visceral way they would react to the darkest horror. If The Texas Chainsaw Massacre family were to form a band – It might just sound like Possessor.
The Underdog London is an eclectic arts and music bar based in London Bridge just a 2 minute walk from the station and next to the vibrant buzz of Bermondsey street. We host some of the most interesting art exhibitions and free live gigs every Friday. We strive to cultivate a welcoming environment to make the alternative art and music scenes an accessible and enjoyable experience for everyone.
Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.
