Franklin Mint will be playing and launching their first album "Scrage" exclusively at The Thunderbolt where it all began with their first-ever gig back when they were called Gargantuant. They have been finalists in the Battle of the Bands type competition Metal to the Masses four years running, despite not being a metal band and have played The Thekla, The Bierkeller and The Fleece as well as many other venues in and around Bristol. Described as "Curiously hypnotic and utterly bonkers they’re like a cross between early Pink Floyd, the Velvet Underground, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and System of a Down. Heavy, but with the bounce of funk-punk-rock, their music stomps and soars and this, combined with a tongue-in-cheek attitude, makes for a compelling and captivating show."
MUTANT THOUGHTS: A Bristol-based, Alternative Synth-Rock trio, with influences from Progressive Rock and Electronica, their live show is groovy and energetic, playing with odd time signatures, Psychedelic Synth sounds, heavy Bass lines, close Vocal harmonies, and no guitars.
