Armed Ambitions // Organised Ideas News:
Terrordactyl‘s long awaited EP is due for release this November and will be release number four on Armed Ambitions records in under five months. The band formed in April / May 2006 out of the ashes of some legendary bands such as Puget Sound, Kelsey and Apostles and has proven to be a magnificent phoenix rising triumphantlyfrom the ashes. This band has received great reviews "frenetic as fuck but it’s the kind of organised chaos that has the capacity to blow you away" and they have not faltered in their musical evolution exploring new avenues and experimenting with new sounds.
The launch of this EP is set for Friday November 9th in The Lower Deck, Portobello with a support from the Mightiest band from Belfast We Are Knives, party poppers Super Extra Bonus Party and post-rock instrumentalists Enemies. An unmissable event all for a mere 10-euro, which includes a Free EP!!

Vimanas are a hefty outfit consisting of a jittering bassist whose spas-tastic bopping drives the bass to seduce chunky guitar riffs in a thrashy Molotov with an overlaying drumbeat that rips theheart out of non-believers. Touring during the summer with electronic / breakcore artist "Herv" this received great reviews. Their new EP is out now on Armed Ambitions records and is a heft attack featuring members of Adebisi Shank and Terrodactyl this band is not to be meddled with. The band hasrecently changed drummers due to other band commitments and now features Derry on drums who also plays with Tunguska, Crowd Control and The Skies Collide(RIP).

Herv‘s music is a frantic swarm of 8-bit melody and syncopated percussion, punctuated by warm wind instruments and layered violin and cello lines. Live, Herv works solely with a laptop and Nintendo Gameboy. While much of his recorded output concerns itself with complex melodic and percussive interplay, his live sets lean more towards the harder end of the electronic spectrum, mixing chaotic chip tunes alongside breakcore and gabba. In the past, Herv has played with artists such as Venetian Snares, Shitmat, Jason Forrest, Duran Duran Duran, Dev/Null, Xanopticon, Hrvatski, Chevron, Aaron Spectre, Dj Scotch Egg, Ove-naxx, Doddodo, and Max Tundra. Herv’s newest album Flot And Retent is available as a free download from Armed Ambition Records at www.organisedideas.org.
