Weekend Death Cult, are an unapologetic wall of sound duo hailing from the vibrant music scene of Brighton (UK). Pushing boundaries with their unique blend of garage punk, noise rock and wild theremin-infused mayhem.
Comprising of Gwen on drums and Allan on everything else, the band has carved a niche for themselves by delivering electrifying sets that effortlessly traverse multiple genres, whilst all drenched in intense layers of sonic fuzz and heavy bass.
Despite the being just the two of them, Weekend Death Cult boast a stage presence of such deafening intensity they leave a sonic scar on every venue fortunate enough to host this spectacle.
Outside of being the head cult members Allan is a freelance music producer / engineer as well as builder of weird noise machines, and Gwen lives as her alter ego Gwenifer Raymond, Guitar convincer and Welsh Primitive musician, much loved by Radio 6 listeners.
New EP recording in progress, due for release mid 2024

Stage Tech Details
- 1 x Drum Kit
- 1 x Vocalist
- 1 x Guitar Amp
- 1 x Bass Amp
- 1 x Theremin
Gwen plays a standard drum set up with a single kick.
Allans live rig is built around a laptop and audio interface for processing all live Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Theremin.
Each has a separate channel out, and each output is transformer isolated with ground lift and gain control.
Vocals are through an SM58 into the audio interface then out from passive DI box all set to unity gain and with the same impedance. The stage mixer will see this as no different to a standard SM58.
Guitar can be sent through our own 1×12 150 watt powered cab, or any shared stage guitar amp, or direct into the stage mixer.
Bass can be sent through any shared stage bass amp, or direct into stage mixer. We can bring a bass amp on request but don’t bring one as standard.
The live rig is quickly configurable to any stage set up we are working with. We don’t use in ear monitors so do require monitor blocks if all instruments are going direct to the PA.
