Leeds quartet Pulled Apart By Horses have been going hard with their noisy rock destruction for a decade now, playing massive supports for the likes of Muse and Biffy Clyro and entering the official Top 20 with last year’s release The Haze.
Since forming in 2008, the tight-knit bunch have been wreaking havoc on stages with their mosh-pit anthems, armed with frenzied riffage and punk hooks.
Over four albums released on the likes of Transgressive Records, Sony Music and now, Caroline International, they’ve honed their sonics and become a force to be reckoned with, both on record and on-stage.
It follows then, that they’re natural headline material for the renowned Fluffer Pit Parties crew, who are responsible for putting on some of the sweatiest, chaotic and moshiest gigs in the capital across their signature 360° stages.
Tonight (4 May), the noiseniks will take to the Pit Party stage at Hackney Arts Centre, alongside Husky Loops, Baba Naga and Girls In Synthesis plus guest DJs for the night including Arrows Of Love and Human Pet.
It’s set to be massive, so grab yourself one of the final remaining tickets here and in the meantime, get stuck into guitarist James’ mighty playlist selection he’s put together for us…
Nadine Shah – Mother Fighter
Nadine released her third album Holiday Destination last year and it’s my favourite album of 2017. Super talented and very poignant lyrically. Absolute cracker of a record.
Traams – A House On Fire
Love a bit of Traams. Tom, our singer, introduced me to them couple of years ago and we asked them to play a show with us in London. Superb band. This is a right tune en’all!
Scott Walker – On Your Own Again
When things get a bit dark on the bus after months of touring.
Father John Misty – Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings
Really big fan of our Father ‘John’. I think this might of been one of the first tunes I’d heard by him and it’s still my favourite tune of his. Listen to him quite a bit on tour during the late nights driving.
Vessels – Radiart
Really enjoying fellow Leeds pals Vessels at the moment. They make noise, but not the same kind of noise as us. Check this tune out, been spinning this constantly recently.
Iggy Pop – Nightclubbing
Firm tour favourite from last year here. This seemed to be on in our practice studio, the van or our dressing room for just about all of 2017. Big influence on the band.
Tigercub – Memory Boy
Another band we took out around this time last year. Their debut album has been glued to my ears ever since. Check them out live en’all, they absolutely nail it on-stage.
Baba Naga – Plná Krvy
Baba Naga will be down playing our London Fluffer Pit Party show. We’re all really into these guys. Pretty far-out and electrifying to watch live. Get down early for these guys!
Cowtown – Castle Greyscale
These awesome folks have just moved into our practice lock-up. Bloody lovely getting to hear them practice, check them out.
David Bowie – The Man Who Sold The World
Like many, I first discovered this track thought the Nirvana Unplugged album. One of my favourite Bowie tunes. So much love for him in the PABH camp.
