Snapped Ankles

Vol.2 – Four Quarters Arcade

Branches quiver and twigs SNAP SNAP SNAP!! SNAP SNAP!!! SNAP!!! And then…

THE BAND:

In a forest water is all around you. But your thirst is overwhelming… Only one place can satisfy your needs… Glance right through squinted eyes, shafts of murky light penetrate the stinking forest canopy… The bog swamp glistens as it returns beams of visual signal into your retina. Approaching delicately, moss and fungus break beneath your slippered foot, and, bending to cup your soil-covered hands into the beckoning waters, you brace for refreshing quench.. Suddenly, all light disappears! The forest darkens… the ground under your stance bulges and grows… green lights shatter the barky atmosphere like streams of coded algorithms… Branches quiver and twigs SNAP SNAP SNAP!! SNAP SNAP!!! SNAP!!! And then…

BANG!! SNAPPED ANKLES ARRIVE, TREE-DWELLING MINIONS! AND HOTEL RADIO HAS BROUGHT THEM FLOODING INTO YOUR INCONCEIVABLE ENVIRONMENTS! ENJOY FOR ALL OF TIME!

THE SPACE:

Yeah so we all know what you’re thinking. Gaming – the eternal image of the sweating dude, sharting like Cartman into his mother’s outstretched bedpan, while he figures out whether his mage should be a specialist in cartography or wizardry in order to progress to the next level of apprenticeship, all while slathered in the dusty remains of endless packets of Cheetos. Enough of these moronic prejudices! Four Quarters is here to bring you what we all loved about gaming in its infancy. Built out of an old, run-down butcher’s, the dudes at this bar have taken arcade gaming back to its retro roots and wheeled in a vast array of screened totem poles offering us the chance to once again batter that irritatingly lanky douche, Dhalsim, spray orgiastic amounts of bullets at sitting duck pop-up opponents, or attempt to down shift while drifting through an ‘easy right, maybe!’

THE GIG:

Hotel Radio is totally obsessed on battering you with the unexpected, so when you push three dudes dressed as branch-pounding tree men into an arena such as The Four Quarters you pretty much know you’re about to be clobbered across your melon by a bizarre psychedelic infusion of twig-twanging brilliance… What you probably don’t realise is just how Snapped Ankles will push you into an apoplectic realm of intense musical delirium with their totally radical style and approach to getting you rocking into an agricultural punktronic fury!! Check these dudes out!!!
