Weds 18th July 2018 - Hot Snake Time Machine 
at The Betsey Trotwood, 56 Farringdon Rd, London, EC1R 3BL.

The Betsey Trotwood presents a night of indie rocking, psych & pop goodness featuring:

Hot Snake Time Machine, Art Theefe and Suspicious Objects.

Doors 7.30pm. First band on at 8pm sharp - just £5 on the door.


"Yesterday's songs at today's prices for tomorrow's people" - former members of cult band The Snakes play obscure and lost psych and pop nuggets as well as a smattering of Snakes classics.


A Betsey debut for Oxford 3-piece described as "A dash of Kinks kitchen sink drama and wry, quintessentially English humour, a touch of classic singer songwriter such as Dylan and Mike Scott, a smooth Steely Dan vibe and even some Van Morrison Celtic rock mystique and you have a fantastic slice of power-pop, slightly Paisley psych and bluesy-rock all rolled into one" - A&R Factory


Anglo-Italian Krautrock-courting collective, bound by Lou Reed's velvet spit and the raucous swell of 90s indie fuzz guitar. With lyrics that bite and bait as motorik minimalism mutates into swaggering psych-jams.
