“The Evening of 18 March 2018”

We know you’ll be there!

The second Possession Records event of 2018 with the following line-up:

Soft Riot

Our own Soft Riot is back with a second Glasgow date in 2018 promoting the new album The Outsider In The Mirrors: “…is a consolidation of all the stylistic elements Soft Riot has pursued in the past; there’s the manic propulsive energy of “Waiting For Something Terrible To Happen”, the infectious, off-kilter dynamics of opener “The Eyes On The Walls” and the pulsing, elegiac synth washes of “The Saddest Music In The World”. Throughout the whole album Soft Riot fuses his maximalist sonic palette; a unique and playful fusion of new wave and early synth-pop with subtle flourishes of italo-synth, dissonance and other unexpected avant garde touches.” Atmospheric, psychedelic, (at times) minimal synthesized art-punk disco.

Adam Usi

Dramatic darkwave from Augsburg, Germany on the absolutely lovely Young & Cold Records.
“Would anyone manage to describe the sound of Adam Usi? The German is alone on stage with his keyboards. (…) Adam Usi impresses especially during the latter. A man who cries out his demons to the sound of minimal electro. Nice, not? It was so beautiful that we were dancing for an hour, far away from everyday problems.” – Peek-a-boo Magazine


Dark and seedy eulogies performed by three sketchy characters, shades of Add N To X/Suicide-style synth-gurgle and grind.
Womensaid on Soundcloud

IO Pan

“Electronic gay goth”. Coil-esque atmosphere with acidic, black-humour laced spoken truths from a man from Lancashire (as well as from Kaspar Hauser, Current Affairs, ad infinitum).
