Hot Head Show are London’s undisputed champions of Maximalist Avant-Bang. Having toured the US and Europe with Primus and Les Claypool, they have regularly headlined shows in Italy, Germany and Holland, in between regular UK adventures. With their latest video showcased by Rolling Stone, and Artrocker Magazine recently branding them “Art-Pop/Avant-Jazz/Flamenco-Punks”, HHS are an un-missable live act.

Ay! emerged like a Chimaera from the Roman underground scene, drawing inspiration from the syncopated rhythm and wailing horns of Afro-Latino music while maintaining an energized, rock attitude; its ears attuned to a rising, organic sound which quickly exported them across Italy to Germany, Belgium and beyond.
