Gonerfest 9 kicks off tomorrow and runs through the weekend, with 36 bands performing across four days and four venues. We highlight some of these bands in our print edition this week.
Ahead of the fest, Goner's and Memphis' own Ex-Cult are debuting their new single, “M.P.D.,” the band's first official release under their current name. (They previously released a Goner single under their previous name, Sex Cult.)
The song will be released as a seven-inch on Goner on October 16th, backed with “No Fun on the Beaches,” a cover of a song by Australian band Chosen Few. The band's debut album, which was recorded in San Francisco under the direction of Goner-connected garage/punk star Ty Segall, is scheduled for a November release.
Ex-Cult's Gonerfest set is 9:45 p.m. on Saturday, September 29th, at the Hi-Tone Café. Go here for a full Gonerfest schedule and ticketing info.
