Milo’s Planes – Crofters Rights, 15th April

Sounding like Fugazi, At The Drive-In and Metz crushed together in the centre of a dying star, Milo’s Planes are that rare, lethal combination of being prolific yet disgustingly consistent in the quality of their releases. The 15th marks the release of their third album, Individual Development Plan on Gravy Train, following last year’s EP Insects and album Delivering Business Success, with support from Leisure Records’ latest signings Leeches and the ever great Bo Gritz.

The launch party is at the usual haunt of Crofters’ Rights and we at Breakfast Records can say with near-mathematical certainty it will be a sick night. Milo’s Planes had a spot on our first compilation last April with their incredible track ‘Stampede’ and they’ve held a steady place (as much as cerebral thrash-punk can) in our hearts ever since. We can only hope against the gnashing tedium of our day jobs that they hold a similarly fervent place in your heart too.

No Violet – Mr Wolfs, 6th April

We had No Violet support Human Bones down at the Old England late last year and it would be an understatement to say they made a lasting impression. Drawing together a striking combination of atmospheric grunge, fuzz-punk and semi-contorted math rock, they’ve earned more plaudits in the past year than we can fit into 100 words and, amazingly, have done so without releasing any recorded music. That’s all set to change on the 6th when they have a launch party for their first single down at Mr. Wolfs, supported by art-punk trio Dead Royalties. One not to miss.

Chuman – Exchange, 8th April

Practically an institution himself, Chuman has long been cutting up Bristol and Manchester with his entertaining mix of bontempi drums, trash-funk guitar and prescient insight into the existential vagaries of modern life. After releasing his EP Midnight BBQ last year, we’ve been itching to do more and on the 8th of April, we have a fundraiser down at the Exchange for an upcoming vinyl collaboration due later this summer. With support from Taos Humm and Salvation Bill, it’s the perfect chance to help contribute to a future musical landmark in the illustrious, self-described genre of crap rap.

Breakfast Records is a Bristol-based DIY label founded by Dan Anthony, Jamie Cruickshank and Joshua Jarman.
