THANES rose from the ashes of Van Cleef, but make no mistake, this is a new kind of beast. Billing themselves as “Kosmische, Krautrock, Cinematic Italo Horror Disco” its a mixed bag of guitar, synths, drum machines and heavily effected vocals. Having just released their latest single Infinite Hold, the band are taking over Ancient World just off Hindley Street and bringing their friends Wild Rocket, Blood Plastic and Tom WayArmy (from local band Subtract-S) along for the party on Saturday 10 October. If you haven’t been to Ancient World yet, make a trip down and see some live music!
