Madonnatron + Kyogen Live At Soup Kitchen




DHP Family + Interior presents:

Madonnatron +


Much in the manner a devotional feline will proudly massacre vermin, leaving it's sacrificial remains to fetter your hallway carpet, we bring you Madonnatron. From humble yet auspicious beginnings, arising unabashed from the mists of the Thames, they have thwarted reasonable doubt with limited knowledge of their instruments and two fingers at convention.

Escapades so far include: touring with The Moonlandingz, PINS and The Black Lips, featuring on the line up at UK festivals, including a packed out slot on the Rising Stage at Green Man; two live sessions for Marc Riley on BBC6Music and one for John Kennedy on Radio X; touring with Trashmouth Records and label mates Meatraffle across the UK at the end of 2016, and releasing their eponymously-titled first record in July 2017. They are currently enjoying a number of favourable reviews for the LP, featuring in Mojo, Q and The Quietus - appearing on tQs top 100 albums of the year and in the top 50 singles of 2017 - as well as gaining top album status in many independent music blogs across the world.

Their atmospheric, raw, and confrontational live shows deliver a sound reminiscent of early Joy Division, The Gun Club and The Stooges- these sirens will mercilessly lure you onto the rocks.
They are now playing headline shows to capacity and are about to embark on a UK headline tour in March/ April 2018.


KYGEN are a Manchester-based electronic dream pop outfit consisting of Kyoko Swan and Daniel Broomhall. Beginning in early 2015, KYGEN was the name singer/songwriter Kyoko Swan gave her solo project, writing and recording in "The Bunker", an old factory lying in amongst the rubble of crumbling mills in the shadows of Salford's infamous Stangeways Prison. Using a loop pedal, live shows and early recordings consisted of lush, built up layers of vocals, guitar, and a delay-laden floor tom, creating a lo-fi, home recorded aesthetic. With the addition of Daniel Broomhall in 2016, the overall sound shifted and became a combination of contemporary dark electronic rhythms and bassy synthesizers, with ethereal, melancholic melodies remaining at the core.

In Review:

Songs that will make you dance and sing along while you feel the seedy, swirling force 4/5 Mojo

They are funny and deadly serious, chaotic and fully focused, and making ace records The Lead Review, The Quietus

The songs of the sirens, ready to pull you to your doom whilst having an absolute ball on the way. A testament to their current strength and future potential Louder Than War

The resulting album blisters with brilliance The Line Of Best Fit
