The Windmill presents:
ROCK FOR NEPAL III
Sports Team + Jovis and the Bedwetters + Primordial Soup + Karmacoma + Warm Gun + Honkies + The Butterfly Wheel + Sin Happy + The Infinite Three + Lost Avenue + Scow
Entry Requirements: 18+
Following on from two very successful fundraisers in 2015 and 2016, we'll be doing another ROCK FOR NEPAL on the anniversary of the huge earthquake that tore so many communities apart. It may not be headline news these days but there's still much work to be done, and we've once again teamed up with a couple of direct action charities to provide what Nepali communities need.
And we've got some of south London;s finest bands playing plus one or two from further afield.

The Butterfly Wheel
Two females take on London’s underground music scene with new & exciting ways of performing music. The Butterfly Wheel; a theatrical band based in London specialising in immersive visual performance involving dance, mime and storytelling.
They use costume, set design, projection and lighting to create site-specific live performances that create otherworldly atmospheres.
Their musical influences come from a wide range of music, from Kate Bush to shamanic chants. Most of the songs are inspired by personifications and archetypes from mythology and ancient history.
The Infinite Three
The Infinite Three is Daniel Knowler, Paul Middleton and Samuel Mclaughlin. Taking cues from noise-rock, dub, drone and disco, their songs are warped constructions grounded in repetition and soaked in monochrome psychedelia.
‘Lucky Beast’ is The Infinite Three’s third studio album (their fourth counting the fan-only ‘Zeklof’ release from last year). Recorded with engineer Jon Clayton, whose past credits include Band of Holy Joy and The Monochrome Set, ‘Lucky Beast’ continues The Infinite Three’s dissonant take on art-rock. A luminescent egg emerging from the banks of The River Effra.
Lucky Beast was released in April 2016 on Actual Size Music. The Infinite Three followed this with two sucessful UK tours in the Spring and Summer. 'Descension', the second fan-only album was released in July of 2016 with the band's annual Winter Solstice track closing off the year.
Plans are underway for more projects throughout 2017.
Paul Middleton and Daniel Knowler are both alumni of noise pioneers Cindytalk; Paul was also part of Kevin Martin's industrial-jazz heavyweights GOD; Sam McLaughlin has recorded extensively with poet and artist Gerry Mitchell. Daniel Knowler has worked on the MFOTWU project with performance artist Franko B. As The Infinite Three they have worked with celebrated improvising saxophonist Tom Jackson, London based producer Den Liberator and recently supported psych-noise legends The Telescopes in London.
Lost Avenue is an Alternative/Punk three piece from Derry, Northern Ireland. They have received heavy airplay on BBC Radio (their single "Killing Time" received it's premiere on the Huw Stephens show on BBC Radio One by Phil Taggart,) as well as substantial praise from magazines such as "Hot Press" and "Louder than War." Lost Avenue have toured the UK and Ireland extensively and have supported the likes of Canadian Hardcore legends D.O.A; as well as Billy Liar, Carnivores and Goons.
