Lazy Day began life in 2014 as the solo bedroom project of Tilly Scantlebury. Self-recording her tracks on Garageband and making them available online, she quickly gained extensive attention and praise from many respected music websites.

Since expanding to a four-piece band, Lazy Day have gone on to do some very cool things, like being longlisted for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition, appearing at festivals including LeeFest, SWN Festival and Beacons Festival, and playing with bands like Dilly Dally, Genghr and Big Deal. Their music has earned radio play on BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio and BBC R adio Kent, and gained rave reviews from many publications, including Line of Best Fit, NME, DIY, Under The Radar, and GoldFlakePaint, to name a few.

Fri 22 Sep 2017

Cock Sparrer is a punk rock band formed in 1972 (but didn’t release an album until 78) in the East End of London, England. Although they have never enjoyed commercial success, they are considered one of the most influential street punk bands of all time, helping pave the way for early 80’s punk scene and the Oi! subgenre. Their songs have been covered by many punk, Oi!, and hardcore bands.

Their style was influenced by pub rock, glam rock and raw 1960s beat music as delivered by bands like the Small Faces and The Who. Their lyrics mostly dealt with topics related to the daily lives of working class people. Their name derives from their original name, Cock Sparrow, a Cockney term of familiarity.

GARRY BUSHELL – “Cock Sparrer? We Love you. Of course we do. This band are what punk was supposed to be about: working class kids letting off steam. Hooligans with a heart of gold.

LARS FREDERIKSEN, RANCID – “They have a style often imitated but never duplicated, because only Cock Sparrer sound like Cock Sparrer. No-one is as catchy as them, period. They are the common denominator that brings it all home.

Death or Glory Promotions are proud to present one of only four shows, in intimate venues, to promote their new album “Forever”

Twin
“Twin beguiles in delicate thunder and ether shot skeleton. Her pyre built guitars soaring skyward on a flotilla of vocal butterflies, their brightly coloured wings collapsing on freshly etched riffs and centrifugal harmonics. Seeding your mind in multiple exposures and candlelit corona; the glittering spiral of imagined galaxies, super nova(ing) in slow motion.”
https://twinmusicuk.bandcamp.com/releases

Drunken Butterfly
“Bristol based three piece drawing inspiration from the likes of Kim Gordon, Babes in Toyland, PJ Harvey and Patti Smith. Combining guitar, bass and drums with ukulele and melodica they create a fusion of snarly fuzzy punk rock and acoustic …folk”

Mytrip is a solo project of Angel Simitchiev, a Sound Art lecturer in Sofia’s National Academy of Arts and an artist whose work is often found in collaboration with video art, theatre, fashion,contemporary dance and performance. With a background in the hardcore/punk scene Angel has turned Mytrip in an aggressive live experience while still exploring sound gravitating around ambient and drone.

His new album is a visual experience as well, as its whole visual side has been created in a tight collaboration with visual artist Silvana Ilieva, who crafted not only its artwork, but a massive body of video work, interpreting the music and accompanying Filament’s live presentation.

Mytrip has been around for almost a decade now, mostly releasing music on tapes and vinyl. The past few years Mytrip has been performing live in England, France, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Greece, Romania, Serbia and of course all around Bulgaria.

Xún // https://soundcloud.com/ulrikkexun

Xún is a project of the Brighton-based musician and visual artist Matthew Dervenkov. In the skeleton of his work lies his attempt to explore suppressed parts of human consciousness through sound and moving image. Xún’s compositions are built around his interpretation of topics of existence, isolation, dysfunction, sexuality and death. Combining harsh electronic sounds and sonic artifacts with soft ambiances, drones and vocal fragments Xún aims to create emotionally tense live experience by emphasizing on the contrast between aggression and fragility.

Coming from a sound and visual art background, the sonic and visual parts of Matthew’s live performance are strongly connected in order to create a multidimensional environment. Xún’s debut is set to be released later this year.

Saturday 23rd September

Tickets: £9.50 Adv. // £12.50 OTD

Undisputed Swiss psychedelic, riff-lords, Monkey3 are finally set to debut in Bristol this September, as part of a 2-day UK tour.

Special Guests to be announced soon.

—————————————————————————————

monkey3

http://www.monkey3official.com/

Welcome to the “cosmic wall of sound”. Psychedelic vibes, stoner-rock grooves with a prog twist, instrumental music that invites to travel through the mind.

Monkey3 started in 2001 in Lausanne (Switzerland) as a jam-band community, influenced by a psychedelic and stoner-rock vibe that reminds Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Kyuss or 35007.

Over a 14-years career, Monkey3 released 6 albums. All along the years, the Swiss quartet toured everywhere in Europe, supporting the greatest acts, and playing the best festivals: Roadburn, Hellfest, Desertfests, Burg-Herzberg, Freak Valley…and the story goes on !

Their new album, “Astra Symmetry”, feeds its inspiration from the mapping of the stars and their symbolic associations, interpreting the constellations stranded over the dark sky.

Taking its roots in the pristine abyss, “Astra Symmetry” is a journey towards sidereal soundscapes making their course over four progressive chapters revolved around the zodiac wheel, unifying astrological signs under their elemental nature. What begins in the deep waters, ascends into thin air and acquires earthly consciousness before burning in the sacred fire.

Astra Symmetry out on September 2nd 2016 via Napalm Records.

Since it’s release, “Astra Symmetry” entered the German charts at #93, Swiss charts at #61 and was #1 most added in CMJ’s loud rock charts.

Starving Artists presents… Sparkz Mcr / Turna Phrase / Mansfield Green

Starving Artists are hyped to present Manchester based MC & Producer Sparkz Mcr (LEVELZ // The Mouse Outfit // Voodoo Black)

Sparkz has recently released the latest installment in a trilogy of three self-produced projects- ‘Angle Three’ EP.

‘Angles’ created by Manchester titan MC Sparkz, showcases not only his lyrical abilities to effortlessly move between genre, style and flow – but also raw talent as a producer, musician and performer.

Having lyrically annihilated our TV screens with his Manchester supercollective Levelz on Channel 4’s Four to the floor, Sparkz is part of a new generation of talent breaking out of Manchester challenging mainstream paradigms, paving the way for legitimate and credible underground music to independently prosper.

With a ton of respected artists and producers calling to collaborate with this northern golden boy, it’s hard to imagine when and how Sparkz has found time to write, produce, vocal and add three incredibly versatile EP’s to his stellar catalogue.

Aquilo is an English duet conformed by Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher and based in Silverdale, Lancashire. Tom and Ben were originally the frontmen in rival bands in their hometown. Higham was jumping around on stage making heavy metal while Fletcher was thrashing out melodic grunge rock. Higham then started producing tracks solo – just him and his guitar. Fletcher, too, started putting his solo songs on SoundCloud. Tom and Ben are neighbours. So, after stumbling across Fletcher’s music online Higham suddenly thought he could start making music with “that lad across the road”.

DUDS

Absolute premium post-punk skronk from Manchester. Formed in 2015, they have previously been invited to support Gang of Four, The Pop Group, Omni, The Raincoats and The Rebel, played a couple of sessions on 6music, and have been played near weekly on there for quite sometime now. Bristol is lucky to have them stop by before they make their way onto touring mainland Europe. Just prior to their visit, debut album ‘…OF A DEGREE OR NATURE’ will be out on America’s CASTLE FACE RECORDS, the first release by a British band on Thee Oh Sees John Dwyer’s acclaimed label. If you were lucky enough to have squeezed into the Old E last time they played in February, you’ll know they’re well worth getting organised and sorting yourself a ticket in advance for… They have promised many new songs and a longer set!

It’s highly recommended you sort yourself a brew, settle down and soak up the totally rejuvenating songs found on their debut LP ‘MOON EGG’, released last year on Bristol’s STOLEN BODY RECORDS. Duds saw them when they played in Manchester and were completely in awe. A much loved and utterly unique group.

Severe, enormous, weighty improvisations from the masters of SONIC WISDOM using prepared drums, guitars and machines. They just get better and better and better, and were bloody good their first gig.

Fact: Oli COIM used to play in a metal band with Graeme YAMA called ‘Anal Goat’. The circle is complete.

Thu 28 Sep 2017

Front man Austin Getz doesn’t blink when asked to sum up Turnover’s third full-length, Good Nature. “Learning,” he replies. “This whole record is about learning. Opening your eyes to new things, going outside of your comfort zone, and learning to grow into something new.” Turnover’s previous full-length, 2015’s Peripheral Vision, won acclaim for showcasing a dreamier side of the band’s melodically-charged sound; Billboard noted that “the quartet has morphed into a moody, atmospheric indie rock band, without losing its knack for hooks.” As easy as it might have been to replicate that success for its third album, the band resisted the urge to play it safe. “It can be hard to be honest with yourself sometimes when it comes to creativity,” Austin admits. Excited by the opportunities for personal and creative growth the band experienced in the wake of Peripheral Vision, they worked hard to strike a balance for its follow-up, “writing good songs but pushing boundaries, without getting strange just for the sake of being strange.” As the range of textures, tempos, and dynamics on Good Nature hints, the members of Turnover have been listening to a wider range of musical styles over the past couple years. Vintage Southern soul and blues, Bossa nova and cool jazz, electronic music, and psychedelic grooves all filtered into the mix. “The new record definitely has a different rhythmic feel because of that,” he observes. “The melodies we wrote for this record are very different, much less linear. They’re much more soulful and move around a lot.” Listening to how the leisurely “Nightlight Girl” melts into a more propulsive selection like “Breeze,” and the way Good Nature flows together as a seamless whole, it’s also evident that the foursome has been paying closer attention to how artists from earlier eras made full-length albums. “The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds has become one of my top five favorites of all time,” says Austin, citing not only the quality of the individual selections, but also the careful sequencing and use of space in the arrangements. “I read a huge article on Frank Ocean toward the end of writing Good Nature, talking about taking his time on his records and being patient with the process, and that really inspired me, too.”

At the same time Austin and his cohorts were opening up their ears, they were opening up their understanding of themselves too: “A big chunk of the record is learning to be happy.” Not full-throttle exuberance, but something much more subtle and satisfying. The almost beatific radiance that imbues Good Nature comes from a place of calm and contentment, nurtured by looking inward. “Peripheral Vision was mostly a record about feeling emptiness and not knowing what to do. This one is about the steps I took after feeling those things, and where those steps took me, and learning to try to love the emptiness.” The album’s unique blend of musical and spiritual growth is immediately audible on the opening track, “Super Natural,” a late-summer idyll of intertwined guitar parts and laidback vocals. “More than anything else, love has the ability to teach people selflessness,” says Austin. “That song is specifically about just one type of love, romantic love, and how it became almost meditative for me. It made me feel so relaxed, but at the same time I could feel it was something so big … it’s ‘super natural’ and it’s ‘supernatural.’” From the flora and fauna that adorn its cover, to song titles like “Butterfly Dream” and “Sunshine Type,” the natural world also plays a pivotal role in Turnover’s latest. “Nature is a huge theme, because nature has been the teacher in my life when it comes to many things.” To record Good Nature, Turnover reunited with longtime producer Will Yip. Together, they spent more time in the studio than on any previous Turnover record, devoting hours of pre-production to methodically going through the new songs, fine-tuning parts and writing additional melodies. The bulk of the lyrics, however, were finalized during the band’s 2016 European tour. “That was a beautiful atmosphere to be doing it in – and the most intense experience I’ve ever had as a writer.” Turnover formed in 2009 in Virginia Beach, VA and has gone on to tour extensively throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan. Their discography includes three full-length albums and countless EPs and split-singles, including last year’s Humblest Pleasures EP. “It’s really cool to see all the change, from the first songs we ever wrote, right up to Good Nature,” concludes Austin. Eight years into their career, Turnover sound better than ever. Slip on your headphones, open up your ears, and learn for yourself what the excitement is all about

One of the most successful hip-hop acts to emerge from Great Britain, Stereo MC’s formed in London in 1985, when rapper Rob B. (born Rob Birch) and DJ/producer the Head (Nick Hallam) formed the Gee Street label as a means of promoting their music. Gee Street soon signed a distribution deal with the New York-based 4th & Broadway label, and a series of singles followed before Stereo MC’s’ debut album, 33-45-78, surfaced in 1989. Supernatural After the departure of founding member Cesare, the group — now consisting of Rob B., the Head, drummer Owen If (born Owen Rossiter), and vocalist Cath Coffey — issued the 1990 single “Elevate My Mind,” which became the first British rap single ever to reach the U.S. pop charts. Following the release of the album Supernatural, Stereo MC’s toured with the Happy Mondays and EMF before returning to the studio to record their 1992 breakthrough Connected, a sample-free album recorded completely with live instruments which spawned major hits like “Step It Up,” “Creation,” “Ground Level,” and the title track. Throughout several years of production and remix work, the group’s long-awaited (and oft-delayed) follow-up remained unreleased, though in 1997, Coffey did at least issue her debut solo single, “Wild World.” For their 2000 mix album DJ Kicks, Stereo MC’s recorded three new tracks, “Rhino, Pts. 1-3,” and finally in 2001 issued a new album, Deep Down & Dirty, after a long nine-year hiatus.

IL SOGNO DEL MARINAIO = Mike Watt + Stefano Pilia + Andrea Belfi

Since earning a reputation as one of the world’s most talented and creative bass players as a founding member of seminal California punk band MINUTEMEN, Mike Watt has stayed busy with an overwhelming number of projects. Whether playing as a member of the STOOGES or composing his various operas, Watt injects his musical personality into everything he does, keeping his music exciting with his trademark style of unpredictable and complex punk-funk playing.

IL SOGNO DEL MARINAIO (“the sailor’s dream”) finds him teaming up again with Andrea Belfi(drums) and Stefano Pilia(guitar) – they worked together on album ‘La Busta Gialla’ in 2009, and the chemistry worked so well on stage and in the studio that they decided to team up again for recent album ‘Canto Secondo’. Each musician brings their own tracks to the table, keeping it authentic, experimental and exploratory, but still flowing along with Watt’s ‘econo’ jamming – another interesting project from this titan of bass and heaps of fun to watch live. https://www.facebook.com/IlSognoDelMarinaio

Ex-Easter Island Head: Large Electric Ensemble / Chris Cundy

For those who lament the death of guitar music, let Ex Easter Island Head point you in the direction of a beatific future. Featuring waves of mallet-beaten guitar overtone nirvana, pulsating phasing chatters of acousmatic byrdsong, whatever is happening it is always sublime – if you’re not a fan already you most certainly will be after this…

Critically acclaimed Ex-Easter Island Head are a UK collective who incorporate multiple prepared electric guitars, percussion and other instruments to explore interplay, repetition and melodic intervention. The group’s live performances have been praised for their hypnotic energy, compositional flair and unique spectacle.

Salford Large Electric Ensemble comprises performers drawn from all corners of the thriving Manchester and Salford underground to present an ambitiously scaled work for eighteen prepared electric guitars and percussion.

Utilising a self-developed language of extended techniques and mechanical preparations, graphic notation and aleatory procedures the piece sees the groups’ shimmering electrified minimalism expanded to a bold new scale, encompassing members of Gnod, ILL, Action Beat, Mother and tapping into the vast resources of talent at Salford’s Islington Mill and on the Manchester-based Tombed Visions label.

Support will come from bass clarinet voyager Chris Cundy

DRUNK MUMS

Formed in Cairns at the iconic Johno’s Blues Bar on the Great Barrier Reef Queensland Australia Drunk Mums relocated to Melbourne six years ago and have earned themselves a reputation as being one of the most engaging rock and roll acts in the nation. All four members write the band’s material of garage-rock inspired equally by American acts and the many Australian bands such as Rose Tattoo, the Angels, Coloured Balls etc.

Melbourne garage punks Drunk Mums have just dropped the first taste of their forthcoming EP Denim. “Ode To Death” holds true to the gritty punk rock sound we’ve heard on previous tracks “Plastic” and “Nanganator”–Rollingstone

This year has marked Drunk Mum’s triumphant return, with ‘Plastic’ already entering a list of ‘best-of’s’, including a #2 position in Beat Magazine’s ‘Top 10 Singles Of 2014 So Far’.–Australian Music Radio Airplay Project.

“Delivering a dizzying blast of garage punk direct to the cranium, Drunk Mums whip up a potent frenzy of sick f*ckin’ riffs in their ode to share house living’s most vital appliance.” –Beat Magazine

The four piece, have built a reputation for their rowdy shows over the years, having played at many of the country’s finest festivals: Cherry Rock, Party in the Paddock, Boogie Festival, Paradise, Sounds of the Suburbs as well as opening for the likes the of Jake Bugg (UK), Dune Rats (AUS), Guitar Wolf (JAP) and Richie Ramone (USA)

Tim Hecker

Few in the field of explorative ambient music have remained as questing and unclassifiable as Canadian composer Tim Hecker. Across his 15-year career he has moved through shades of reflective electronic noise, experiential sound design, and modern composition with a deft and distinguished touch.

Hecker brings his “foreboding, abstract” style (The New York Times) to the unique setting of The Station to present his newest opus, ‘Love Streams’ which takes its cue from the avant-classical orchestration and extreme electronic processing of his previous full-length album ‘Virgins’.

Ages 16+

This is a standing event at The Station.

Echoic Memory presents… Colin Webster/Graham Dunning Duo / COIMS / Winter Ghost / Ian Watson + DJ Lovelace

Echoic Memory Presents:

Colin Webster / Graham Dunning Duo

London based saxophonist Colin Webster is quickly establishing himself on the European avant garde scene. Collaborating with some of the key figures in improvised and experimental music, Webster is known for working from extreme sonic palettes – from minimal to maximal, constantly pushing boundaries.
He has put out releases with the likes of Sheik Anorak, Mark Holub and Toby McLaren, Dutch free-jazz duo Dead Neanderthals, and many, many more.

webstology.wordpress.com

Graham Dunning is self-taught as an artist and musician having studied neither discipline academically. His work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects. He has performed solo and in ensembles across the UK, and Europe, and shown solo sound installations in the UK, New Zealand and USA. He teaches Experimental Sound Art at the Mary Ward Centre in London and also gives various independent workshops. Dunning has released through Entr’acte, Seagrave, Tombed Visions and more.

WINTER GHOST

Winter Ghost is improvisational duo of Bristol based Violinist, Agathe Max (KURO, Solo) and guitarist, John Scott (Stereocilia). Their individual styles of play have come together to create vast, sprawling, cinematic soundscapes and ethereal drones.

https://asithearsrecords.bandcamp.com/track/winter-ghost-mildred-thryth

IAN WATSON

A prolific artist in many media, Ian’s sonic output is generally derived from an obsession with the mis-use and exploration of electronics and recording formats through improvised performances and recording sessions. He has held Artistic Residencies during Cardiff Contemporary (2014), at Arcade Cardiff, and at G39 as part of their Unit(e) residency programme

“These could be a big one by the end of the year – if they haven’t damaged their fans’ hearing before then” – Linn Branson, Little Indie Blogs

Capture in 7 hours by Todd Campbell, debut single “Comfortable” is 251 seconds of brutal self-analysis and acceptance, delivered with the raw edge of Hüsker Dü and a hook your favourite band can only wish they wrote.

Four years after their incredible sold out show at The Fleece, Shellac are back!

Formed in 1992, the post-hardcore/noise trio that is Steve Albini, Todd Trainer and Bob Weston, have forged an uncompromosing 25 year legacy and distinctive, minimalist sound based on asymmetric time signatures, repetitive rhythms, an angular guitar sound, and both Albini’s and Weston’s surreal, bitingly sarcastic lyrics.

They have released five studio albums – most recently 2014′s ‘Dude Incredible’ – and have become a regular at events including Primavera Sound and formerly of the now defunct All Tomorrow’s Parties.

A truly excellent live band and one of our favourites to have ever played the venue, we cannot wait to see them back here this November.

Hannah James / Grace Petrie

Two of British folk music’s most powerful artists are coming together for a very special one-off tour this Autumn.

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Hannah James (Lady Maisery, Songs of Separation, Jigdoll, Kerfuffle) has been beguiling audiences for over fifteen years with her breathtaking solo performance style. Marrying flawless accordion playing and beautiful vocal stylings with inventive foot percussion and clog dancing, she is regarded as one of the most innovative and entertaining performers on the UK folk scene. Leicester’s Grace Petrie (The Anti-Capitalist Roadshow, BBC Radio 4′s The Now Show) is internationally renowned as one of Britain’s most respected contemporary political songwriters, engaging audiences across Britain and Canada with thought-provoking lyrics and an impassioned vocal delivery. From opposite ends of the ocean-wide spectrum of folk, two of its brightest voices will explore their own interpretations of what it means for us today, from the deepest roots of tradition to the sharpest views on the times we live in. Advance booking highly recommended.

“She stole the f***ing show.” – Billy Bragg

TOTALITY presents… Pega Monstro / The Gin Birkins / Gosa Vadd

This is gonna be a pretty sweet night.

Pega Monstro

Pega Monstro are sisters Julia Reis (drums) and Maria Reis (guitar), both sing! The duo’s name translates as ‘catch the monster’, perfectly countering the band’s striving dream-punk sound.

The name ‘Pega Monstro’ also references a novelty toy in the shape of a jelly hand on a string, which children have been throwing at each other in delight for many generations in their native country.

Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, Maria and Julia have been playing music together since they were 15 and 17 respectively, in other groups first before resolving on becoming a duo.

Back in 2010, both sisters started a record label, along with some of their musician friends, called Cafetra Records to document Portugal’s garage punk scene. Cafetra represents a community of like-minded musicians who all help each other, making music that they’d want to hear, powered by enthusiasm.

Pega Monstro released their self-titled debut album on their own Cafetra imprint in 2012, with national critical acclaim meeting the raucous garage-rock inflected record. Whilst, 2015 saw Pega Monstro team up with Upset The Rhythm for their impressive and more sonically developed ‘Alfarroba’ album that led to international attention. Now Pega Monstro return with their third album entitled ‘Casa de Cima’, which translates as “Upper House”. The album shares its name with the Villa in which the album was recorded, nestled amongst the pine-scattered terrain of the Sintra mountains. ‘Casa de Cima’ was recorded through September 2016 by Leonardo Bindilatti, who also produced their last record.

Among critical acclaim and the word quickly spreading about their tremendous live show, don’t miss their return to Bristol!

From New York, the songwriter/comic book artist has been performing his twisting tales of modern romantic life and it’s hurdles and failures for near two decades.

Lewis clips away at the everyday with a poetic sentimentality and hooks in abundance.

Regardless of how familiar you are with Lewis’ back catalogue, this date at Clwb is guaranteed to leave you grinning.

Sounds of the Sirens

Sounds of the Sirens | Thu Oct 12th | 7pm | £11

Media interest and the Sound of the Sirens’ fanbase has rapidly grown in the wake of a stunning live performance on the first episode of TFI Friday on Channel 4 last October. Unashamed fan of the band Chris Evans invited them to perform alongside U2 and Take That and has also welcomedthem on to his BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show. This summer they are already appearing at many festivals including Glastonbury, Carfest North and South, Camp Bestival, Isle of Wight Festival , Cropredy, Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days and have just announced a headline show at London’s Bush Hall on 14th October 2016.

Sound of the Sirens are a foot-stomping, crowd-engaging female folk/rock duo whose strengths lie in their passion and chemistry. These girls know how to rock a stage, and make you believe in every word they sing. Individually, their voices tell their own tale but when blended together their harmonies leave the listener wanting more, compelled by its magic.

Exeter-based Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood are an enigmatic and tangible act who write, perform, record and evolve with a truly genuine attitude to an industry they love. The versatility of each original song is a responsive rollercoaster, stealing your attention, creating a furious arm’s in the air festival-vibe that sticks in your head for days. Woven with just enough haunting melancholy to silence an audience; the bitter-sweet lyrics stir the soul with a performance that needs to be experienced live. The duo’s audience rely not only on the energy and diversity of the music, but also on the chemistry between them on stage.

They’re witty and sincere, and it’s this very quality of down-to-earth engagement and communication during performance’s, that has seen their popularity rise substantially over the last few years.

Windhand / Satan’s Satyrs

For a band who traffic in measured, unhurried riffage, Richmond’s Windhand have moved awfully quickly over the last few years. Founded in 2009, the VA quintet released their self-titled debut – quickly becoming an underground hit – before signing to Relapse Records, where after a steady touring schedule, the band collaborated with Richmond brethren Cough on a split entitled ‘Reflection of the Negative’. Positive critical reception helped pave the way for WINDHAND to release the highly anticipated album ‘Soma’ in September 2013, landing on many best-of lists with praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Revolver, MetalSucks, Metal Injection Stereogum and more.

After embarking on a series of tours across North America, Europe, and Australia – sharing the stage with the likes of Sleep, High on Fire, Dead Meadow and Kvelertak and at major festivals including Roadburn, SXSW, Scion Rock Fest and Maryland Deathfest – WINDHAND returned in 2015 with their third full-length, ‘Grief’s Infernal Flower’, a multifaceted slab of thundering stoner doom. Produced by Jack Endino (Nirvana, High On Fire, Soundgarden, etc), ‘Grief’s Infernal Flower’ is massive, heavy and personal, a modern testament to the power of doom and stoner metal’s legacies.

Though the first two WINDHAND albums were underground classics, ‘Grief’s Infernal Flower’ stands to see WINDHAND cementing themselves as one of the premier metal bands of our time.

Vic Godard and Subway Sect / Give Me Memphis / Abstract Man

Formed at the suggestion of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, Vic Godard and his Subway Sect have been long-term staples on the post-punk scene since 1976.

In the summer of 1977 the band joined The Clash, Buzzcocks, The Jam and The Slits to tour the UK as part of the now famous White Riot Tour.

During the tour Joe Strummer said “Number one for me at the moment are Subway Sect, they’ve got some great ideas.”

They were hugely influential too on the post punk indie pop scene that followed. A resurgence of interest in their work has found fans with, amongst others, Marc Riley on BBC 6 Music, who has booked the band for several live radio sessions.

Meanwhile 2014 saw the release of an impressive double album career retrospective ’30 Odd Years’, covering an eclectic range of material, from punk to ska to cabaret/musichall and jazz.

Subway Sect with Vic Godard play Le Public Space in Newport on Friday October 13th with support from Give Me Memphis and Abstract Man.

There will also be a DJ set from Abstract Man covering the punk and post punk period 1976 – 1980s.

Zervas and Pepper are songwriters Paul Zervas & Kathryn Pepper from the South Coast of Wales. Hailed by tastemakers for their “Exquisitely harmonised, blissed-out Folk Rock” MOJO.

While locking themselves away from the world in a cabin in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the duo wrote their forthcoming album, Wilderland.

Returning to their acoustic roots to write, surrounded by the dense wilderness and solitude, a return to nature seeps into the songs. The sanctuary of their cabin muse only disturbed by thoughts of the outside world and the unfolding events that would soon also find their way into the fabric of the songs.

Cosmogramma presents Paper Tiger / Waldo’s Gift + DJ Veto

Cosmogramma presents Paper Tiger live, with Waldo’s Gift + DJ Veto | Sat Oct 14th | 9pm | £5/3adv

Paper Tiger began in a bedroom in suburban Wolverhampton: music-obsessed teenagers comparing notes on African funk compilations, Japanese animation, soundsystem culture, apocalyptic space-rap and Miles Davis’ little-known collaboration with Sting.

Now based in Leeds, between them they have heaps of musical experience and knowledge from which to draw – a seamless blend of electronic wizardry and good old-fashioned jazz chops; squiggly space-synths and fidgety funk; Beats, Rhymes And Life.

“Blast Off is altogether a triumph, a relentlessly modern record that channels deep understanding of the past and most importantly a core of rump-shaking funk that, completely aside from how clever or strange it is, makes it an absolute delight to keep coming back to.” The Arts Desk ★★★★★

“Paper Tiger inhabit a niche that is all their own… Organic, energetic, non-conformist and filled with unexpected sonics.” Bonafide Magazine

£13.44 incl. booking fee

The Lantern – 20:00

One of the UK’s most significant electronic artists and composers, Forest Swords delves into new aesthetic territory for upcoming second album ‘Compassion’, due for release on 5 May. A follow up to 2013’s ‘Engravings’, the new album is a creative response to the uncertainties and aggressive behaviours common to many in modern life. His ideas are manifested in compelling layers built from buzzing digital textures, field recordings, clattering beats and distorted jazz sax amid fizzing orchestral arrangements.

In his own words:”Like many, with all that’s been going on since I started making the record, I’ve struggled to see any kind of light at the end of the tunnel, so I realised there’s some sort of power in trying to create our own instead”.

This is a standing show.

Clean Cut Kid

Swn Festival 2017

Clean Cut Kid

7:30pm | £10 | 16+

Liverpool’s thrilling fuzz-pop quartet Clean Cut Kid have announced details of their much-anticipated debut album. A string of exhilarating singles have given snapshots of their brilliance and now comes a record to match. ‘Felt’ will be released on April 28th through Babe Magnet Records/Polydor and is available for pre-order from today. It will be preceded by a new single, ‘Leaving You Behind’, which has already received a Hottest Record accolade.

Clean Cut Kid are Mike Halls, Evelyn Halls, Saul Godman and Ross Higginson. The four-piece are one of the most exciting breakthrough bands in the UK, their inventive take on anthemic guitar-pop the product of intense writing and rehearsal sessions at the band’s practice space in Liverpool. Their five singles so far – ‘Vitamin C’, ‘Runaway’, ‘Pick Me Up’, ‘Make Believe’ and ‘We Used To Be In Love’ – have introduced a band full of creativity, who mix classic melodicism with a sonic adventurousness. ‘Felt’ was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios with Blossoms and The Coral producer Rich Turvey, London’s Konk Studios with Arcade Fire collaborator Craig Silvey and London’s Voltaire Studios with Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Wolf Alice).

What emerges is a contemporary indie-pop record filled with defiant pop hooks and emotionally-charged fragility. The band say that “the concept of ‘Felt’ is the timeline of a break-up from a relationship falling apart as you reach the end of the A side of the record; to flip into the B side where we emerge from the breakup and back into a new relationship.” It’s a record that drags the listener through the rollercoaster of emotions experienced during the end of one relationship and the beginning of another, songs with a voice that is refreshing and honest in a generation of emotional detachment. ‘Felt’ is an album that deals with the hard truths and uplifting highs of modern love.

Anyway, one take later I was sauntering back into the control like a dude. Myself aside, they were a great band and made great music. Well deserving of a re-release”

Live performance of the album here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPrkhP1y7tI

“Party music this is not. This is music that I imagine many people listening to, on the train, eyes closed, trying to imagine they’re alone. In the car, in the morning, as dawn breaks; late at night, windows rolled down, wind rushing in. It’s music for transient moments, liminal spaces, music for moving while sitting still. It’s lonesome music. But it is not about running away or being defeated, although I had to do those things to get here”

—————————————————————–

BLACK SPRING

An emerging Milton Keynes trio creating heavily repetitive music from a palette of processed tapes, voices, drums, percussion and synth.

“Imagine one of those classic stoner rock crews – Sleep, perhaps, or Om – hunkering down in the Black Ark to cut some sides for Hyperdub with an Apollo-era Eno casting a quizzical eye over proceedings.” – We Need No Swords (Paul Magree)

Formed in 2013, the trio have since released a brace of tapes via their own label and on the very excellent, Structured Disasters from Aylesbury.

In 2016 Black Spring released a limited edition split cassette with Miles Cooper Seaton – on their own Monocreo label which received fine reviews by The Quietus and The Wire:

Most recently, Black Spring have been recording site specific improvisations. The first of these was recorded in an audibly large space at MK Gallery in March 2017. The physical release of the music will be paired with a limited edition Risograph print and is set for release in September 2017.

Dusty Cut

Dusty Cut was formed by Phil Jones in Bristol and played indie folk songs at house parties where everyone wanted to listen to dubstep. Tom Holcroft joined the band after meeting on the Bristol open-mic circuit. This forged the warm Dusty Cut sound that incorporates moody folk, 70s rock and a slight hint of strangeness inspired by eccentrics like Sufjan Stevens, Arthur Russell and Joanna Newsom.

Dusty Cut’s lyrics are about events in Phil’s life and bigger things out in the world, singing about friendships and loves gained and lost, fights in restaurants, ancient cities and the sea. The band is now based in Cardiff with Tom Dyer on drums and Thom Hollick on bass.

Dusty Cut’s debut EP ‘Didn’t Stay’ was released in May 2015 and is available from

Singles ‘Mesopotamia’ and ‘Summer Song’ from Dusty Cut’s forthcoming debut album ‘Hawaii’ are out now.

Wesley Gonzalez
“I wanted to see if I could take those traditional guitar elements in pop music out and still make a big sounding record”

Wesley Gonzalez made a name for himself at an early age as the enigmatically petulant frontman and founder of guitar-shredding pop-punk band Let’s Wrestle. In 2015, after ten years together, the group disbanded and Gonzalez set his sights on an entirely different approach to songwriting: “as my first album away from Let’s Wrestle, I wanted to completely indulge myself with the experimentation that I had previously kept to my bedroom demos.”

Without letting go of his fascination with Beatlesesque melodies, Gonzalez taught himself to play piano and began writing songs which hark back to mid …70’s singer-songwriters such as Todd Rundgren and Emmitt Rhodes but with added elements of soul and funk – drawing upon influences like Sly And The Family Stone and Donny Hathaway. After spending one summer revisiting early electronic music, Gonzalez invested in some synths and wrote his debut record. Although Gonzalez made a conscious retreat from punk music, he maintains his work is “still defined as angry music; anger is still an energy. All the lyrics are rooted in my disgust with a lot of the modern world, and feeling powerless as a young person in our society”.

Matthew E. White is in the middle of work on his new album and would like to share and try out some of his works in progress and older classics.

Nervous Twitch / Scissorkick Victory

Nervous Twitch is a garage punk band from Leeds born out of the ashes of Dirty Water label band The Despondents.

On this their 3rd album and first as a 3 piece, Nervous Twitch take on both personal and universal themes of alienation, anxiety and adversity with the Album “I Won’t Hide” and transform it into 14 tracks of hook filled fuzzy New Wave Pop. Expanding on their previous releases pushing their arrangements further whilst maintaining their pop sensibilities, with a range of influences from The Swell Maps to The Crystals, Nervous Twitch take you on a trip through the modern world as seen through their eyes. Album available on 12” vinyl through Odd Box Records, October 2017.

In 2017 Nervous Twitch toured both the UK and Europe and played festivals such as Franklin-Fest and Going Up the Country. Previously Nervous Twitch have performedlive sessions for Marc Riley and Mary Anne Hobbs’, both on BBC Radio 6 Music and supported acts such as Flamin’ Groovies, Tiger Army, The Ukrainians, Sleaford Mods, Fat White Family, The Lovely Eggs, Kid Congo Powers and the Pink Monkey Birds.

Their Current single,“That Weird Guy”, is a Modern take on the classic girl-group bad-boy tale, with narratives of first date faux pas replacing the original leather clad juvenile delinquent types with scrounger wise-guy millennials. The additional side of the record features jangly stripped-back verses colliding with powerful fuzzy grungy choruses, “Look At You now” is a classic indie-pop anthemic shout-a-long sneering bite at the many bullies the world encounters. The single is available 7” clear yellow vinyl from Punk Fox Records, September 2017, and also includes an exclusive non album track.

The Brackish / Lapis Lazuli

THE BRACKISH

Psychedelic vanguards and misfit maestros of Bristol’s BLOOM music collective, THE BRACKISH are an audacious all-star assembly of guitarists Luke Cawthra (Phantom Limb – The Naim Label) and Neil Smith (This Is The Kit – Rough Trade), drummer Matt Jones (Zun Zun Egui – Bella Union) and Port Erin bassist, Jacob Tyghe. Their debut album, 2014′s Big Guys (Lava Thief), righteously filled a kaleidoscopic void in instrumental music and along with 2016′s follow up album, Liquid Of Choice (Bad Elephant Music), the band gained an infamous reputation for their awe-inspiring live shows across the European and UK art rock scene, including the La Ferme Électrique and ArcTanGent festivals. With a third album rapidly underway, THE BRACKISH are storming the stage again with a new brew of gracefully strange arrangements and improvised auditory theatre.

https://youtu.be/3LfqFKTm4x0

LAPIS LAZULI is a multi-genre fusion band from Canterbury combining Funk, Progressive, Psychedelic, Fusion, Rock, Latin, Balkan and Afrobeat styles. In the past we have supported Caravan, Alice Cooper, Nuru Kane and Syd Arthur.

COIL 2: Imma Asher / Colin Self

COIL TOGETHER. AGAIN. Howling Owl Records and THORNY return to the idiosyncratic Brunswick Club for the second instalment of COIL. A happening where outsiders re-seize soylent space within the oozing heart of Bristol.

Building on the successful spectacle of our sold out first collaboration earlier this year, we have stepped the chaos up a notch with unmissable appearances from international pioneers in live art and experimental sound, alongside some favourite DJs to facilitate our euphoric descent at this night of necessary release.

£10 / £12 / £14 tickets available at Headfirst Bristol:

IMMA ASHER (NYC)

Performance artist Imma Asher (formerly known as IMMA/MESS) is a major nightlife personality living in and from NYC.

Imma joins us in Bristol for an electrifying one-off club performance that is guaranteed to leave you entranced.

COLIN SELF (NYC/Berlin)

Colin Self composes and choreographs music, performance, and environments for expanding consciousness, troubling binaries and boundaries of perception and communication.

He is known for his highly charged, physical performances that combine his vocal virtuosity with choreographed movement and electronic processing, unfolding into a compelling play of transmutation.

Dictionary Pudding presents… Sun Ra Arkestra

Dictionary Pudding are THRILLED to present a rare excursion to the South West for the thrilling, inimitable, Sun Ra Arkestra – led by 93 year old Marshall Allen!

Sun Ra was one of the greatest and least known jazz artists of the last four decades, whose influence on diverse musicians is little known to the general public. A pianist and band leader, his style ranged from retro swing to avant free, often in the same piece. His band could play a swinging Gershwin tune and almost imperceptibly soar into a free cosmic rhapsody as if they possessed a single mind.

Ra was a keyboard improviser of great originality, but his foremost talent was for inspiring and teaching creative musicians to improvise freely but together. This tension between freedom and coherence was something he explored with abundant energy and skill.

Sun Ra died in 1993. The Arkestra performs today, under the direction of 93 year old alto saxophonist Marshall Allen and their recent series of residencies at Café Oto in Dalston have thrilled and inspired a new generation of listeners. For this special Transcender performance, Marshall Allen will direct an expanded Arkestra line-up – a rare opportunity to catch a genuinely unique and mesmerising ensemble of musicians, still playing under the guidance of the titular, currently absent, ‘Ra!

Bristol Psych Fest & Stolen Body Records present… Gateway Drugs

Bristol Psych Fest and Stolen Body Records are happy to announce we have Gateway Drugs coming over to Bristol and The Old England Pub for a FREE ENTRY show. Support to be announced.

Gateway Drugs

They have the sound of a tour bus crash between The Dandy Warhols and My Bloody Valentine. They have the look of midnight on Hollywood Boulevard. They’re loud and urgent, sultry and sensual, and undeniably cool as hell. They’re Gateway Drugs, a powerful foursome that takes the basics of rock-n-roll and cuts it with swirling psychdelia, ferocious punk propulsion, and undeniable pop sensibilities. The result is a sonic authority that feels both lived-in and completely fresh. A wall-of-sound for the next generation.

Hailing from the soft underbelly of Los Angeles, in all its hazy sunshine and pitch-black night, three members of Gateway Drugs were born into an enviable musical pedigree and have been playing together since they were children. Liv, Gabe and Noa Niles are the kids of Prescott Niles, bassist for pop-rock legends The Knack. With Blues Williams rounding out the band, Gateway Drugs are an airtight unit made up of admirably multi-instrumentalist musicians. The basic lineup sees Liv and Noa trading vocal duties. Her voice is somewhere between honey and heroin, his perfectly gliding along the edge of his buzzsaw guitar. Gabe, meanwhile, pounds the drums like he’s some kind of thunder god and music is his ritual, and Blues rides the band’s undulating swells with at times menacing bass and guitar.

The band’s new album, “Magick Spells,” is aptly name, as it casts its own intoxicating spell, seducing listeners with hypnotic grooves and an invitation to peer into a world of iconic lyrical rock-n-roll imagery—a world of lovesick suicides, teenage heartthrobs, black wine and bad thoughts. Produced by Blind Melon’s Christopher Thorn and recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606, “Magick Spells” is a record that tips its hat to the roiling cauldron of rock inspiration that makes up the entire attitude of Gateway Drugs. That attitude—especially live—is raw, ferocious, chaotic. It’s both jaded and eager. It’s rock-n-roll—and it’s the clarion call of a band that sounds like sex and drugs feel.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor / Bardo Pond

Support from Bardo Pond!

Godspeed You! Black Emperor began with Efrim, Mauro and Moya in the early 90s, playing a handful of shows and recording a self-released cassette as a trio before deciding to transform the group into a large band. Recruiting numerous Montreal musicians through 1995-1996, GYBE mounted sense-rattling wall-of-sound performances, featuring as many as 14 musicians and several 16mm film projectors, before recording their debut vinyl-only Constellation album in 1997. They transformed a warehouse space into the Hotel2Tango, a DIY hive of activity with band rehearsal rooms, silkscreen and wood shops, and weekend shows that took place under the radar. The group settled into a permanent nine-member line-up by late 1998, with Aidan and Bruce on drums, Thierry and Mauro on basses, Efrim, Dave and Roger on guitars, and Norsola and Sophie on cello and violin respectively. The band toured and recorded incessantly from 1998-2002 and gained a reputation for mesmerising live shows marked by orchestral dynamics, epic rock power and clunky, beautiful film loops. After four records, GYBE announced an indefinite hiatus in 2003.

The hiatus ended in December 2010, when the band returned to curate and perform at All Tomorrow’s Parties in the UK, followed by extensive international touring. October 2012 saw the release of ‘ALLELUJAH! DON’T BEND! ASCEND!, their first recorded work in a decade, to widespread critical acclaim including; with thy follow-up, Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress released in March 2015.

Liars

Constantly shape-shifting and “wildly unpredictable” (Pitchfork), Liars refuse to be categorised. After moving from LA to Berlin via Brooklyn, the art-rockers have continued to experiment with their sound – from stripped-down rock to pulsing electronic – upholding a “dedication to unsettling, disorientating anarchy” (NME). After appearing in many ‘best album’ lists over the years, their latest release Mess demonstrates the band’s “uncanny ability to switch from bizarre to beautiful” (The Quietus).

————————–———-
The Proper Ornaments formed in London around songwriters James Hoare (Veronica Falls/ Ultimate Painting) and Max Oscarnold (TOY). They in met at a women’s clothing store in Nothing Hill, where Max’s girlfriend was trying to steal boots from. The two bonded over a mutual love of The Velvet Underground and released their first single, “Recalling”, in 2010 through San Francisco label Make a Mess. They followed it up with an eponymous five-song EP for No Pain in Pop in 2011 and in 2013, a single (“Waiting for the Summer”) for Lo Recordings, which then released all their output to date on a collection (also titled Waiting for the Summer) later that year. After signing up with Fortuna Pop in the UK and Slumberland in the US, and revamping the line up with the addition of drummer Robert Syme and Daniel Nellis on bass, the group toured with Metronomy, TOY, The Horrors, Crystal Stilts, Woods and returned with their debut album, Wooden Head, in the summer of 2014, when after a promotional tour of UK and Europe they packed the 100 Club in a memorable night. This year saw them working on their second long player, to be released in January 2016. Their sound gathers elements of classic UK indie pop with shimmering jangling guitars that blend with rich harmonies reminiscent of the west coast 60’s groups, and in their live shows they take these sounds to a more motorik and heavier realms.

Brassneck Records presents… The Priceduifkes / Bedford Falls / Masts

Brassneck Records presents, a Halloween punk rock show with…..

The Priceduifkes – Did you know that pigeon racing was an event at the Olympics in 1900? It’s true. Anyway, this noble sport inspired a Belgian four-piece to name themselves The Priceduifkes. Roughly translated: the prize pigeons. This was about 10 years ago and they’ve been flying high ever since. Now, finally, they’re back in Wales for a Halloween gig at the newly re-opened Le Pub.

https://thepriceduifkes.bandcamp.com/album/goathorse

Bedford Falls – South Wales’ Indie-punk vets have been churning out buzzsaw pop gems for over a decade now. They weld noise to melody and melancholy in a manner consistent with bands like; Hüsker Dü, Buffalo Tom, Dinosaur Jr., Superchunk and Teenage Fanclub. With their new album “Send more Bees” due for release later this year, this is another fine chance to see some masters of their craft doing what they were born to do.

https://bedfordfalls.bandcamp.com/album/elegant-balloons

Masts – Cardiff locals, Masts take inspiration from multiple points in punk’s now well established history. They blend melodic pop-punk vocal lines (sung/shouted alternately by twin vocalists) with the discordance of contemporary hardcore and mathcore’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it time signature changes. This means musical dexterity, soul-searching lyrics and a dynamic and considered approach to melody without entering the realm of blandness. If you haven’t caught Masts live yet, now is the time. Get there early….

Sleeping States: 10 years of There The Open Spaces / Palomica + DJ Oliver Wilde

A special performance of There The Open Spaces, the spellbinding first album from Sleeping States, to mark 10 years since its release.

Join us for an intimate serenade at The Cube on a woozy Wednesday evening, with support from Bristol DIY noisemakers Palomica. Later on downer pop dreamboat Oliver Wilde will be on the decks in the bar for a special vinyl set.

Tickets £8 + 50p bf available from Headfirst Bristol:

http://hdfst.uk/E40614

All has been very quiet on the Sleeping States front for a few years. The musical project of Bristol-based Markland Starkie, last released music via his celebrated second album ‘In The Gardens of the North’ on Bella Union in 2009, with a limited-edition collaboration with artist Rhiannon Chaloner released in 2011. Markland has maintained an active presence with other projects in the music scene of his adopted home city of Bristol in the years since. But today, Markland is delighted to share some news…

It has now been ten years since the release of his stunning debut ‘There The Open Spaces’ and to mark the occasion Markland announces three special shows as Sleeping States celebrating its release.

“Open Spaces represents a time in my life that was vastly productive from a creative perspective, and was always something I was quietly proud of, from its approach, to the DIY ethos of its release, to the recordings themselves. The record somehow managed to reach people way beyond the local music scene it was intended for – and seemed to connect more deeply than I ever expected, for which I’m still rather humbled by, if mildly bemused. So it feels fitting to mark the occasion in some way. The gigs will focus on tracks from the album – having spent years away from it I’m excited to revisit the songs, some of which were never performed live even the first time around.”

“Deceptively complex Starkie’s haunting musical arrangements may be, but Sleeping States is chiefly remarkable for his voice — at once fragile and strong, deep, warm and floaty-light, a voice that to be fully appreciated needs to be experienced with eyes closed.” – The Quietus

Access: we regret that the Cube Microplex is not a wheelchair accessible venue. For requirements please email jo@wearethorny.com and we’ll do all we can to facilitate – thanks.

“Mésange is a collaboration between violinist Agathe Max (KURO etc.) and guitarist Luke Mawdsley (Cavalier Song etc.).

Their music is possessed and steered by a solemn power that embraces the elements and careers through dense electric skies; exposing signs that flutter and flare in dark elegance. Respective strings correspond and meander across ancient fields, while layered voices evoke serene pools of tropic sound, soon to be engulfed by inescapable tides of noise. Unfettered, yet critical, Mésange invites the listener to explore a downy and magnetic earth-scape, teetering between lightning and thunderclap. The tracks unfold like magic spells, each evoking chimes of hope, despair, freedom and oblivion.”

Fat Paul presents… The Lovely Eggs

“You won’t hear another band like this anywhere between now and the the end of the millenium. The Lovely Eggs are just brilliant!”- Huw Stephens, Radio One

“They have the off the wall look that is perfect pop and the cutting strippd down dynamic of a cool art crew in love with underground rock n roll”- John Robb
“This my friends is fucking brilliant. it’s grunge – but not as you know it”- Everett True
The Lovely Eggs are an underground punk rock duo from northern England.

They have a fierce punk rock ethos that music should have no rules.

For Holly and David being in a band is a way of life. True to this, they live the way they play. Fiercely, constantly in search of the good times.

With observational and often surreal lyrics about life The Lovely Eggs have a powerful stripped down sound: one vintage guitar amp, one Big Muff distortion pedal, a guitar and a drum kit.

With releases in the UK, Europe, USA and Japan, The Lovely Eggs have played hundreds of gigs around the UK, USA and Europe supporting the likes of Half Japanese, Shonen Knife, The Slits, Young Marble Giants, The Television Personalities and Art Brut as well as a two month tour of America and a string of dates at SXSW in Austin, Texas.

The Lovely Eggs have recorded sessions for BBC Radio One, BBC 6 Music and XFM as well as being played by a host of UK DJs including Radio One’s Huw Stephens and Rob da Bank and 6 Music’s Marc Riley, Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins, Tom Ravenscroft and XFM’s John Kennedy.

Holly (guitar/vocs) and David (drums/vocs) have also worked with comedian Graham Fellows (aka John Shuttleworth) as well as Jad Fair from the seminal Texas band Half Japanese. Their songs appear in Canadian film Molly Maxwell and have been sampled by Zane Lowe for Scroobius Pip. The pair also feature on a Radio 4 Richard Brautigan documentary, presented and in discussion with Jarvis Cocker contemplating the influence of the American surreal author on their music.

They have produced four albums.

The first ‘If You Were Fruit’ (Cherryade Records, 2009) ranked in the top 40 records of the year by Artrocker Magazine and was nominated for XFM’s ‘Debut Album of the Year’.

The second ‘Cob Dominos’(Cherryade Records, 2011) has gained widespread critical acclaim, with ‘Don’t Look At Me (I Don’t Like It)’ (featuring a video with guest appearance from John Shuttleworth) fast becoming an internet hit.

Their third album ‘Wildlife’ (Egg Records, 2012) featured the Gruff Rhys-produced single Allergies, originally released on 7″ on the Too Pure Singles Club label. The track (which sold out before release day) won the BBC 6 Music Rebel Playlist – with 82% of the public vote, was declared winner on Steve Lamacq’s 6 Music Round Table and was Artrocker’s single of the month. The song featured a death-shaped psychedelic spectacular promo vid featuring a special guest appearance from Gruff Rhys.

With a 4 Star review in Record Collector, ‘Wildlife’ also contains the singles ‘Food’ which was remixed by Cornershop’s Tjinder Singh for release on his Singhles Club Label as well as ‘I Just Want Someone to Fall in Love With’. Both songs received much support from BBC 6 Music.

The Lovely Eggs have become well known for their live performances and have played everywhere from Amsterdam squats and Los Angeles scrap yards to steam trains in Ripley and charity shops in Leeds.

In April 2013, the pair had a baby but true to their ‘no rules’ philosophy they bundled their newest member in the van and took him on tour with them, racing round the UK with family and friends like a tripped out version of On The Buses with two fingers up to conventional family life firmly out of the window.

2015 saw The Lovely Eggs return with their fourth self-produced and self-recorded album ‘This is Our Nowhere’: a title which sums up their celebration and love of a scene which doesn’t exist in the eyes of the manufactured mainstream. Ironically the record received 8/10 in the NME.

Lead single ‘Magic Onion’ (made in collaboration with artist and video director Casey Raymond and released as a limited edition 7″ on the Cardiff-based D.I.Y. Flower of Phong label) was accompanied by a handmade book of psychedelic/nightmarish proportions and included a B side version of the song with Sweet Baboo, who joined them in an acoustic and decidedly pickled duet. The single gained much support from BBC 6 Music and a sell out tour of the UK followed.

The second single to be released from ‘This is Our Nowhere’ ‘Goofin’ Around in Lancashire’ was released in November 2016 on ltd edition 7″ “fried egg” vinyl. With an accompanying video by Casey Raymond, again it sold out immediately and gained much support from BBC 6 Music, with 6 Music’s Marc Riley declaring it one of his top tracks of 2015. To promote the release, the Eggs embarked on another tour of the UK, with many sold out dates and in 2015 alone were invited to perform two live sessions for Marc Riley’s BBC 6 Music show.

The Lovely Eggs live in Lancaster, England.

Fuelled By Jealous Lovers presents… Mark Eitzel & Band

Mark Eitzel (American Music Club) is to set out this November on a 5 date tour of the UK after his biggest selling record and tour in over 20 years this last February and March featuring three sold out dates. In addition to older classics from American Music Club and previous solo albums Mark will be featuring material from Hey Mr Ferryman, his first studio album recorded in London. It was made at 355 Studios with Mercury Prize winner Bernard Butler (ex-Suede, McAlmont & Butler), who has produced or recorded albums with Ben Watt, Duffy, Edwyn Collins and more. Butler produced Hey Mr Ferryman and played all of the electric guitar, bass, and keyboard parts on the album. UNCUT says “Eitzel at his unflinching best” and Q “Eitzel’s best album in years”

Hey Mr Ferryman features the vivid melodies long associated with Eitzel’s former band American Music Club (a.k.a. AMC), which remains a cult favorite to this day, as well as Butler’s distinctive guitar that serves to complement Eitzel’s expressive vocals. Of that voice, Pitchfork once wrote: “If Leonard Cohen’s voice is a story about the passage of time and Levon Helm’s is a story about losing what is most precious to you, Eitzel’s is about the circuitous roads we take in search of ourselves.”

“The songs on this record are about celebrating musicians and music, about misogyny, the long shadow of history, getting one’s head out of one’s ass,” quips Eitzel on the themes of Ferryman. “Also oceans, blood, skies, hearts, gay pioneers, carpenters, weeping women, and how death waits for you even in the happiest place on earth: Las Vegas.”

Mark Eitzel has released over 17 albums of original material with American Music Club and as a solo artist. The Guardian has called him “America’s greatest living lyricist,” and Rolling Stone once gave him their Songwriter of the Year award. Originally formed in 1983, AMC released seven albums before breaking up in 1995. The band reunited in 2004 for two full-lengths, Love Songs for Patriots and The Golden Age. In April of 2012 while working on his last solo record, Eitzel suffered a heart attack which forced him to slow down and delayed the album’s release. In 2015, he wrote music for Simon Stephens’ Song from Far Away, his second collaboration with the English playwright.

Mark will be touring with his band on all the dates.

Bristol Psych Fest & Stolen Body Records present… The Pinheads

Bristol Psych Fest and Stolen Body Records are scared to announce one of best and craziest australian live bands around are coming to Bristol and The Old England Pub for a FREE ENTRY show. Support to be announced.

The Pinheads are a six, sometimes seven piece rock n roll outfit who can be found ten-pin bowling and eating slimy pizza in the suburbs of the Illawarra.

They were raised on garage rock and horror films and it’s what has made them the eyeball-melting, skull shrinking group you’ll never forget as they crawl out of the crypt and into your mind.

In less than a year the band has already begun to clearly define themselves by some fuzzy, raucous rock ‘n roll and a wild screaming live show to boot.

The band is a sight to see, putting on some of the highest energy, most unpredictable and noisy shows around and has been known to melt people into puddles and horrify the audience.

Recorded entirely by themselves in their barn amongst the bush, The Pinheads have now completed their debut EP ‘I Wanna Be A Girl’ and it’s to die for. Mixed and mastered by Owen Penglis (Royal Headache, The Grates, Straight Arrows), they have managed to create their own spicy cocktail of psych and rock ‘n roll. It’s a record that will feel and sound familiar in a way yet still stand alone and remain totally unique.

The Pinheads will scare and swoon you, you won’t know whether to run, dance or scream. But either way their spell will have you fall in love and howling for more.

The Flatmates

The Flatmates were formed in 1985 in Bristol, UK, in the white heat of what has become known to historians as the ‘C86 movement’ or ‘The Scene In-Between’. Their simple aim was to make classic pop tunes which combine the cool and charm of The Ramones and The Ronettes. In the late 1980s they released five singles on guitarist Martin Whitehead’s Subway Organization label, all of which dented the UK indie charts of the day, two of them also reaching the hallowed ground of DJ John Peel’s annual listeners’ chart the Festive 50.

While contemporaries went on to find a degree of fame and fortune on major labels, The Flatmates stayed true to their DIY roots. They never record the classic album they knew was in them back then, although two collections of Flatmates material were released, Love and Death (1989) and Potpourri (Hits, Mixes and Demos ’85 – ’89) (2005).

In 2013 the band returned with a new line-up (including Swedish singer Lisa Bouvier), a new single (‘You Held My Heart’ on the Archdeacon Of Pop label), and a select run of UK gigs. This was followed in 2015 by a single on Italian label Astro Girl, featuring cover versions of songs by Prince and Cinerama, as well as a reissue of the Potpourri compilation, now available for the first time on (pink! double!) vinyl, issued by Cherry Red / Optic Nerve.

Since then they have continued to play live, including the Indie Daze all-dayer in London; The At The Edge Of The Sea festival in Brighton; The Indie Tracks festival in Derbyshire; Berlin Popfest; their first French tour; and also their first US tour, including a headline slot at NYC Popfest.

Live they have gone from strength to strength, a five-piece band with an onstage energy few can match, and while the classic tunes are still present and correct, they are matched by a clutch of potential new hits, material which the band have recorded for a new album, officially their debut, which will be released in 2018.

Throughout history only a handful of artists have been able to achieve a truly iconic stature within any given artform. Morbid Angel is among those select few. Shattering the boundaries of creativity and imagination while evolving with each groundbreaking release throughout its historic career, the band truly is an icon in extreme music. Continually serving as source of countless inspiration to the multitude of fans and never failing to amaze with each evolving chapter. Formed in 1984 by founding member Trey Azagthoth, the Floridian band went through a number of lineup changes and recorded the demos “Scream forth Blasphemies”, “Bleed for the Devil” and “Abominations Of Desolation”, featuring Trey Azagthoth and Richard Brunelle on guitar, drummer/vocalist Mike Browning and bassist John Ortega. Azagthoth’s interests in the occult, ancient magic, witchcraft and the Necronomicon poured into the band’s lyricism, as the musical context grew darker and attained definitive sophistication. The 7’’ single “Thy Kingdom Come” was released in Europe in 1988 and Morbid Angel was preparing to make a profound universal statement in form of a lineup consisting of guitarist Trey Azagthoth, drummer Pete Sandoval, bassist/vocalist David Vincent, and guitarist Richard Brunelle. Living together in several band houses which also served as places for rehearsals and pulling their funds together to purchase an old school bus which they converted into a tour bus, Morbid Angel hit the road on various underground touring adventures with the company of their mascot/head of security pit bull named “Butch”. On a shoe string budget and supporting only the various demos, the band made its way to places such as New York and performing at the clubs “Streets” in the city and “Sundance” on Long Island. With the help from friends in the band Immolation, they managed to get a side job painting a shopping mall in upstate NY to help offset expenses on the many off days of this particular shake and bake tour. Also the band met with troubles when rolling though New Jersey and were pulled over and arrested, simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The bus was searched and the police found some most interesting and alarming things which lead to them holding the band for a while there in jail, including Butch. So fitting for a group consisting of a bunch of freaks. Morbid Angel continued on their mission of Death Metal and was soon discovered by Mick Harris of Napalm Death which lead to their meeting with Digby Pearson and their recording contract with Earache Records.

Altars Of Madness descended upon the world in May of 1989 as a raging storm, baffling the listeners with the insane amount of energy and adrenaline emanating from each track along with the finely-shaped musical passages and fiercely intense atmosphere. Nothing else sounded like this album at the time and the fans of what was then considered to be ‘extreme’ music were exposed to something truly out of this world. Recorded at Tampa’s Morrisound Studios, the album catapulted to #1 on the UK Independent Chart, solidifying the band’s world-wide fan base. Morbid Angel found itself on the Grindcrusher Tour in the UK alongside the awesome Napalm Death and Carcass, then continuing with

Napalm Death on the Smash Teams tour throughout Europe. The following year Morbid Angel hit the road in the USA using their converted school bus and still sometimes bringing along their pit bull “Butch”, performing at many underground clubs and taking part in the epic Michigan Death Fest event which even the local mainstream news took part in.

Blessed Are The Sick, 1991’s sophomore full length release adorned in J. Delville’s painting ‘Les Tresors De Satan’ as cover art, is considered to be one of the most revered albums in metal history as well as a pure musical masterpiece. The dark ambiance and classical overtones were deeply engraved into the context, as Azagthoth credited Mozart for inspiration. The songs on the album have retained the venomous energy of its predecessor, yet took the sound another step away from this earthly realm, seeing the band expand thematically as well as musically. Morbid Angel was quickly becoming a devastating force to be reckoned with, not just within the metal community, but the entire music field in general. Abominations Of Desolation, the band’s initial pre-Altars unreleased debut, saw its release later that year, providing the fans with an earlier chapter of the band’s work. Morbid Angel, however, were prepared to break another barrier.

Covenant, the third album released in 1993, was a true milestone for the underground metal community and remains so to this day, being the first and only major label release by a death metal band. No compromises were made. In fact, this album is considered to be one of the darkest and most Satanically-inspired releases by the band throughout its collection. The lineup consisted of Trey Azagthoth handling the entire guitar assault and keyboard work along with Sandoval and Vincent in their respective positions, as Brunelle exited the band in 1992. Covenant was produced at the familiar Morrisound Studios, this time with the expertise of Flemming Rasmussen behind the mixing board, as the final mixes were made at Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen. The band toured extensively, enlisting live guitarist Erik Rutan for European dates including a run sharing the stage for the first time with Cannibal Corpse. Brunelle would make a brief return for a line of American concerts with Motorhead and Black Sabbath. The video for the single “Rapture” premiered on Headbanger’s Ball, followed by an interview with swat suit-clad David Vincent. The video for “God Of Emptiness” featured yet another then-unseen feature in extreme metal – Trey’s use of the Ibanez 7-String Universe guitar, as he is a true pioneer of its full potential and application in the extreme metal genre. At this point Morbid Angel had become the living proof that creativity did not have to meet the demands of conformity in order to achieve commercial success. The band was ready to conquer and dominate further.

Domination, released in May 1995, was the band’s major label release. Guitarist Erik Rutan creatively contributed to the material featured on the album. This release was a grandiose, slime-ridden departure from its predecessor. Applying a generous use of heavy grooves and power-driven detuned chordal progressions such as in the track “Where the Slime Live”, which inspired yet another quite interesting video from the band. Morbid Angel took on a long touring schedule throughout 1995 and into 1996. Starting in their home state of Florida, the band toured extensively throughout America and Europe.

Entangled In Chaos, the official live album produced by Trey Azagthoth, was recorded during the Domination touring cycle. The band had become an otherworldly organic slime-dripping machine from the swamps of Florida, far evolved musically and thematically from its initial commercial and underground success. Morbid Angel had once again placed itself among the forefront of the extreme metal community with this incredibly powerful live album.

Formulas Fatal To The Flesh was released in 1997 as a strikingly different Morbid Angel effort in comparison to its predecessor. With the departure of David Vincent and now Trey Azagthoth creating all the compositions and lyrics, Morbid Angel extracted from the Abyss this new masterpiece of feeling and imagination, taking things to a whole new level in song writing. The use of the extra sick guitar harmonies and polyrhythms in conjunction with the deep occult lyrical formulations, resulted in this totally mind bending artistic work. This groundbreaking release contained the most deep and beautifully ugly, meanist material, and introduced new bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker into the lineup. According to the diehard followers of Morbid Angel, this album harkens back to the Altars era with its rage-filled atmosphere. Though far evolved technically and conceptually from its eight-year predecessor, Formulas Fatal To The Flesh showcased Morbid Angel for what the band was first and foremost – a brutal, seething creature of sickness, depth and unrelenting ambitions. Delivering this uncompromising material live plus with a fine collection of older classic songs and the return of Erik Rutan as a touring guitarist, Morbid Angel set a clear milestone again as for a band that really delivers in concert. Steve Tucker was greatly received by the fans and performing all the live material, including the older songs, masterfully. Sharing the stage with amazing bands such as Vader and Nile, Morbid Angel showed once again that the repeated worldwide success certainly did not affect the band’s underground drive nor purposes. Azagthoth’s guitar wizardry and spirit of innovation, including his psychedelic Wind Rift and the Anti-Vacuum Culture micing techniques, made this album a remarkable effort in the application of a wide array of tones and textures side by side with some of his most intense riffing. Along with Sandoval’s inhuman drumming and Tucker’s ferocious vocal/bass attack, Formulas Fatal To The Flesh had become yet another milestone in the band’s unending evolution. After the successful touring for Formulas and the amazing vibe and undeniable power of the live performances, Erik Rutan returned to the fold as a contributing member, thus setting the foundation for the next assault.

Gateways To Annihilation was the highly anticipated metal release of 2000. Opening with a chorus of swamp frogs, the album delivered another devastating blow to the ears of metal fans across the world. This record presented, in many of the song stuctures, a new and even more sick level of poly rhythms over cold industrial swing foundations. With the majority of the tracks using the Ibanez 7-String Universe guitar, plus the continued application of the innovative micing techniques with the new addition of the Roland Guitar Synth, Morbid Angel once again displayed the driving and endless ambitions of these outer-worldy artists. This was the first album to feature Tucker as a full contributor to the band’s material and the composing chemistry of the team shined through brilliantly with this unique release. Morbid Angel started its touring cycle for Gateways in the USA as they were invited by Phil Anselmo to participate on the first leg of the Pantera Extreme Steel tour, giving the band an amazing platform to perform it’s material for a wider audience which again was a huge step for the Death Metal scene in general. Steve Tucker departed Morbid Angel shortly after and was replaced by Jared Anderson (1976-2006), a member of Erik Rutan’s project Hate Eternal, as touring vocalist/bassist. Morbid Angel toured extensively throughout the world and once again was invited to join Pantera’s Extreme Steel tour for it’s second run in the United States and with this time also including Slayer. After which the band teamed up for the first time with the legendary death metal band Deicide for another touring run in the United States. After completing this cycle of touring, and the last gig being in Japan with Pantera, Erik Rutan and Jared Anderson left the band in 2002 to fully concentrate on Hate Eternal.

Heretic, out in 2003, saw Morbid Angel as an entity truly out of this Universe. Recorded at D.O.W. Studios in Florida and engineered by the band’s own sound engineer and tour manager Juan “Punchy” Gonzalez, this was the first effort to be created outside of Morrisound Studios. It captured an essence so far removed from the physical realm in form of a multi-structured, fiery whirlwind of sweeping guitar poly rhythms and psychedelic guitar solos with the third time use of the innovative mic’ing techniques. Pete Sandoval once again shined, showing his multi-dimensional drumming abilities and contributing to the writing process with his amazing composition “Striken Arise”. Steve Tucker, who had returned to the band, contributing to the material once again and adding his unique stylistic lyrical arrangements and presence. The Heretic material, having a quite raw overall tone to it on the record, live once again displayed that Morbid Angel creates music like no one other, continuing as an epic and unrelenting band live in concert. With the addition of Tony Norman as a touring guitarist, Morbid Angel toured the world extensively and sharing the stages with bands such as Krisiun, Suffocation, Satyricon and Superjoint Ritual. Steve Tucker exited the band at the final leg of the Heretic touring cycle and David Vincent returned for a series of South American dates leading up to the Masters Of Chaos Tour which followed. Guitarist Erik Rutan returned for a number of European festivals, featuring the legendary Domination lineup together once again in over ten years. In spring of 2008 Morbid Angel announced tryouts for the second guitarist position, which was filled by Norwegian guitarist Destructhor. The band toured heavily across the globe, taking breaks as they worked on material for the next album.

Illud Divinum Insanus, Morbid Angel’s eighth studio album, was released on Season Of Mist Records in June of 2011. The album features Tim Yeung on drums, replacing the longtime drummer Pete Sandoval who was dealing with a serious back injury. After touring Europe, Morbid Angel announced the 2012 Illud Divinum Insanus North American Tour with Dark Funeral, Grave and VadimVon, as well as the 20th Anniversary of Covenant U.S. Tour in fall of 2013 and in Europe during late 2014.

Juvenilia, released exclusively on Record Store Day on April 18, 2015 as a 12″ vinyl limited to 1500 copies, is a live album showcasing the band’s early performance on their first tour to the United Kingdom at Nottingham’s Rock City on November 14, 1989.

In June of 2015 came the announcement that Steve Tucker was once again to return to his role as frontman and bassist of Morbid Angel.

DJ Format and Abdominal just can’t stay away from touring the UK! After another incredibly successful tour earlier this year, the infamous hip hop duo head out once again to showcase their very first full-length album together, ‘Still Hungry’.

‘Still Hungry’ was released in May this year and it saw the guys play live on BBC 6 Music with Lauren Laverne as well as London’s very own Soho Radio. The first single from the album, ‘Behind the Scenes’ was play listed on 6Music and received more than 50 plays on the station. The duo has released several videos to accompany the album and they have clocked up over 150K plays so far. Still Hungry hit the Top 10 in the iTunes Hip Hop Charts as well as hitting #1 in the overall Bandcamp album charts.

Wolf Parade

Montreal indie rockers Wolf Parade return with their first new album in seven years. Across three acclaimed albums, the band’s blend of glam, prog and synth-rock helped to define indie in the early noughties. After breaking indefinitely in 2010, Wolf Parade sound as “tight, powerful, unified, fresh, and exciting” (Noisy) as ever. Described as possessing a “clamorous, percussive urgency” (The Guardian), much like their friends and fellow Canadians Arcade Fire, the band “rolls like a Ritalin-deprived power-Bowie …over Pixified rhythms” (Pitchfork).

Born out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as the ears, Hackney Colliery Band have rapidly gained a reputation for reinventing the brass sound of the 21st century with a tour de force of trumpets, trombones, saxes, marching percussion and electronics.

Inspired by rock and electronica as they are New Orleans marching bands and the traditional British brass bands to which their name pays homage, the 9-piece have gained an army of loyal supporters through their undeniable party charm at festivals and venues across the globe, including support from Lauren Laverne, Gilles Peterson, Craig Charles, Huey Morgan, Jamie Cullum, Rob Da Bank and John Kennedy.

HER’S

As outsiders from sleepy coastal towns several countries apart, Stephen Fitzpatrick from Barrow in Furness and Norwegian Audun Laading met for the first time in Liverpool as students. The pair bonded over a love of peculiar, sardonic humour and wide eyed observations. Dream-pop outfit Her’s is the natural extension to the solitary decoding of the cultures they grew up in. Together they create 80s indie influenced songs with nods to Orange Juice and the capriciousness of Ariel Pink-ish pop.

The Magic Band play the music of Captain Beefheart: Farewell Tour

Mon 20th Nov | 7.30pm | £20 adv | All Ages*

The Magic Band play the music of Captain Beefheart: Farewell Tour

www.facebook.com/TheMagicBand

Former Captain Beefheart musical director and drummer, John “Drumbo” French leads out the latest version of The Magic Band for one final tour of the UK. A faithful rendition of the best of Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band’s music is guaranteed.

John French was nicknamed ‘Drumbo’ by Don Van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart. British Underground commentator and DJ John Peel described Beefheart as “the most important figure to emerge from the Rock era of the 1960s and 1970s.” Rolling Stone magazine included John French in their 100 Best Drummers Ever (at #48) and declared: “(his) toms-heavy, polyrhythmic style would become as integral to the group as Don Van Vliet’s modernist-blues croak.”

Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart was a visionary in the field of music. His group, Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band started as a Blues group. Later, drummer John French joined and they recorded an album for Buddah Records entitled Safe as Milk — referring to the strontium-90 content found in lactating mother’s milk.

Guitarist Jeff Cotton joined and a second album, Strictly Personal was recorded shortly before a tour of the United Kingdom — where famed DJ John Peel had been playing Safe as Milk to a very interested audience. Van Vliet hated Strictly Personal’s production, rapt with phase-shifting, calling it “Psychedelic Bromo Seltzer”.

Though for the most part commercially unsuccessful, the groundbreaking album, Trout Mask Replica was hailed by critics who recognised Van Vliet’s unique and totally original approach to music composition and lyric creation. Produced by Frank Zappa, who gave the musicians six hours to record the bulk of a double album in a single evening, was amazed when The Magic Band recorded it in four-and-a-half.

Rumours create legends, and there are many rumours circulating, some exaggeration was thrown in for spice (“I wrote the album in 8 ½ hours” claimed Van Vliet). The truth was even stranger: the band all shared a two-bedroom bungalow with Van Vliet in Woodland Hills for nine months while the album was created bit by bit, transcribed in piano notation by John “Drumbo” French, and taught to the others by the same during gruelling 18-hour days of rehearsal, often interrupted by sessions of Van Vliet’s own form of group therapy, which turned into what some consider “brainwashing sessions”. It was a very intense and creative time as all the players learned to transpose piano parts to guitar, as well as having had their complete identities investigated on an all-too-personal level.

Another rumour started by the Captain was that he taught the guys to play. Bill “Zoot Horn Rollo” Harkleroad, Jeff “Antennae Jimmy Semens” Cotton, and Mark “Rockette Morton” Boston had all played in Rock cover bands and made a part-time living during their high school years before ‘graduating’ to The Magic Band, replacing the original Blues band members one by one.

The music sounded “terrible” to Simpsons creator Matt Groening but, because it was produced by Frank Zappa, Matt decided to give it another try, and then another; finally convinced it was “the best rock ‘n’ roll album ever.” Audiences were confused, however, because of all the rules being broken. Where was the backbeat? Why did it sound “out of tune” and “rhythmically complicated”?

That combined with the obsessive leadership of Van Vliet caused there to be a steady stream of ingoing and outgoing members – which eventually reached about 40 members. In later years musical “fans” of the creations joined the work in progress. Fans such as John Thomas (Keys), Gary “Mantis” Lucas (guitar), Jeff “Moris” Tepper (guitar), Robert Williams (drums), and Cliff Martinez (drums).

Van Vliet retired in 1982, after a career of sixteen years and thirteen original albums plus many bootlegs. He became a painter, withdrawing more and more from the public, eventually succumbing to complications of MS in 2010.

Meanwhile, John French earlier had the idea of re-forming The Magic Band back in 2001, eventually succeeding in 2003, after finding members willing to give it a try. His first attempt was to re-form the Trout Mask Replica band personnel, largely as they were his high-school buddies, but Jeff Cotton was not interested. Denny “Feeler’s Rebo” Walley (1975 -78) took his place. Denny had played on a 1975 tour and also is featured on slide guitar on the album Bat Chain Puller.

Bill Harkleroad initially was interested but then parted ways when the original promoter became a bit flaky. Gary Lucas (1982) stepped in. Gary had managed Don for the last two years of his career and also had been an official member of The Magic Band on the final Beefheart album, Ice Cream for Crow. For a short time, Robert Williams (1977-81) took the drum throne, as drummer John French sang about two-thirds of the set.

After the first promoter started changing the goalposts, the project was put in stasis for a year, until Barry Hogan of ATP came along in 2002 and offered the band good solid guarantees plus created a CD deal wherein the guys could collect themselves in the same studio and rehearse/record. In early February of 2003, they entered Paradoxx Sound studios in the High Desert of Southern California (where the band originated) and recorded Back to the Front, a rehearsal CD. John French played the drums, then overdubbed vocals and harmonica parts, as he had been singing and playing this material for about two years.

Barry Hogan (ATP) had contacted the band about playing two festivals: Camber Sands and The Queen Mary Ship (Long Beach, CA, USA); and also promoted a concert in London @ Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

By the time the festival in the States came around (November 2003) Williams went his own way and the group contacted drummer Michael Traylor, who played with TMB until 2006. With the economic downturn, interest faded in The Magic Band and they did not pursue the project again until Barry Hogan once more contacted the group for a festival appearance in 2009 – The Ten Year Anniversary of ATP – Barry’s. Gary Lucas, who has a solo career, was already booked, and drummer Michael Traylor had injured his knee in a work-related incident.

John French had, by this time, released his own solo CD, City of Refuge. Although getting rave reviews, it didn’t really sell that well. The bottom came out of the industry, as MP3s became the new medium. He couldn’t get a tour, even though he had a fantastic group of younger players, which included guitarist Eric Klerks, who hails from New Orleans, and drummer Craig Bunch, an LA-based drummer with a great capacity to understand John’s odd drum-style. The only live performance the “Drumbo” group did was for a Jimmy Carl Black (former drummer of the Mothers of Invention) benefit in the High Desert.

With the blessings of Hogan, John invited Eric and Craig to join the Magic Band and play the festival, and the result turned out really well. They were invited again to play at the ATP Festival in 2010, and decided rather than doing a “one-up” that they would book a small tour of the UK and a Dublin show. The tour was well-received and the band clicked as a team. John French’s book, Beefheart: Through the Eyes of Magic was released this same year and the book was rated as “one of the six best music books” in the UK in 2010.

Again, another Festival appearance in early 2011 resulted in another slightly larger tour.

Two CDs were released that year. One is the original Bat Chain Puller (recorded in 1976) that had been in Gail Zappa’s vault since 1975 and was the only album Denny Walley had recorded with Van Vliet. French wrote the liner notes for this set, and a special tribute to Don Van Vliet, who had passed away December 17th, 2010.

The other was a Sundazed release, The Magic Band live in Oxford 2005, which was picked as the best of thirteen performances during the UK tour. This was recorded direct from the board digitally, later uploaded by French and mixed in his studio.

Also, French’s book, Beefheart: Through the Eyes of Magic sold out of the original printing and was reprinted in paperback in both paperback and digital media.

A new album, simply entitled The Magic Band plays the Music of Captain Beefheart Live in London 2013 was released. These are live digital recordings of The Magic Band at Chelsea’s Under the Bridge venue, recorded in March 2013.

In 2013, the lineup of The Magic Band has changed with the inclusion of Andrew Niven on drums, Craig Bunch having decided to pursue other interests. In 2015, Denny Walley left the band, to be replaced by Grandmothers of Invention guitar hero, Max Kutner. John French considers this line-up to be one of the most accomplished versions of The Magic Band ever.

The line-up who will be playing the final tour are:

John “Drumbo” French / Lead Vocals, Harmonica, Sax, Drums

Eric Klerks / Extended Ranch guitar, BKP Vocals

Max Kutner / Guitar and Slide guitar

Jonathan Sindelman / Keyboards

Andy Niven / Drums

TOIL presents… Nana Grizol / Alimony Hustle / Smasher Lagru

toil are v excited to be putting this show on with equestrian collective. nana grizol is coming to the uk to a community bike cafe near YOU!

NANA GRIZOL

https://nanagrizol.bandcamp.com/

Growing up in the South, Theo Hilton found both lonely solace and wide community in music.

When he formed Nana Grizol in Athens, Ga., in 2007, he secured an outlet for expressing how confusion and constant pining became ingrained into a young, queer male in a small town. Despite Athens’ liberal leanings and bevy of artistic collaborators, Theo walked in liminal spaces as a queer surrounded by straight people.

Nana Grizol’s first two records “Love It, Love It” (2008) and “Ruth” (2010) chronicled that mixed experience. With “Ursa Minor,” the first Nana Grizol record in six years, Theo Hilton is unequivocally certain about who he is and what he wants to say.

He’s traveled and studied, moving from Athens to Seattle to New York and, currently, to New Orleans. Along the way, the role of social justice advocate came to suit him. Through song, he casts a critical eye on “Ursa Minor” to concerns environmental, like the effect of oil refineries in the Mississippi watershed, as well as how neoliberal policies chew up and spit out innocent human lives.

He’s loved and lost and been reaffirmed. The new songs reflect an artist fully aware of what he’s learned, what’s changed for the better, what still sucks, and what, exactly, we’re going to do about it.

On “Ursa Minor,” a loyal cast of collaborators return to give wing to Theo’s songs. Robbie Cucchiaro (Music Tapes) adds trumpet and euphonium lines that echo both the golden era of Elephant 6 recordings and the brass bands of Theo’s current home. Laura Carter (Elf Power, Orange Twin Records) supplies secondary drumming, clarinet trills, and trumpet calls, a familiar cradle for new songs. Jared Gandy (Area Men, Witches), on bass and guitar, notches another year in a two-decade collaboration with Theo. Matte Cathcart (Area Men, Door-Keys), an ally pulled to Athens, Ga., from Bloomington, Indiana, rounds out the quintet on drums.

In Zaire / Atatat

£8 adv £10 door

Tribal psychsters In Zaire are just as confusing to pin down sound-wise as is their origin (Berlin-based but hailing from Italy). The quartet bring the audience into a psychedelic trip through a unique mix of dub-funk rhythms, African percussion, eastern bass guitar melodies, drifting Arabic voices, minimal electronic sounds and not too hidden heavy metal influences.

After their 2013 debut album “White Sun Black Sun”, In Zaire returned with “Visions Of The Age To Come”, released on Sound Of Cobra Records in the spring, an eightfold kaleidoscope coming into blissful focus which sees the band dancing feverishly towards the edges of hard rock heritage and psychedelic outlands.

“In Zaire paints in heavy strokes of cosmic fury, running the guitars through enough hardware to find a sound that befits the universe collapsing in on itself” – Raven sings the blues

“[At Liverpool psych fest] In Zaire melted a few brains with their fuzzy space-prog, packed with groove and epic guitar voyages” – Get into this

“In Zaire have put together an album that is dark in a way that avoids many of the cliches that a number of other ‘dark’ bands are currently falling into.” – Psych Insight Music

New album available here: https://inzaire1.bandcamp.com/album/visions-of-the-age-to-come-2

Supporting tonight we have ATATAT who is the stage name of Joel Barbara who plays in scouse three piece electro noise band Barberos. Drumming live, he batters out a barrage of complex polyrhythms over cosmic drones and soundscapes. Check out what to expect:

They have built up a reputation of being one of Norway’s finest live bands, presenting something completely out of the ordinary. Their flowery colourfulcostumes and signature dance moves are rivalled only by their own live prowess and musicianship.

Dictionary Pudding presents… Faust

Dictionary Pudding are DELIGHTED to welcome genuine krautrock/avant-garde legends FAUST to Bristol!

Tickets = http://bit.ly/2uhDtGN

As Krautrockers, Faust had a worldwide career. On their first three albums in the early 1970s, they inhabited the vast field from improvisation to bricolage to rock’n'roll with the ease of rogues and the determination of declared sonic renegades. They were big in Britain before the notion of Krautrock had made the rounds in Germany. One can still feel the breathing of this music, the bubbling of this primal soup, in current faUSt pieces, in the stone-age thudding of “Fish”, which Faust anticipated in 1972 on “Mamie Is Blue”. But you will also be able to distinguish the as-yet- unheard if you allow yourself enough audio time. The sound of a squeaky door from the house of Jean-Hervé Péron, for which the musician has the same kind of enthusiasm others might reserve for a brilliant guitar riff (“gripping, touching”); or the minute-long fadeout of “Fish”, which Zappi Diermaier is so excited about. The only plan is for the band to take off without a plan. “We let the music play through us,” says Jean-Hervé Péron. Everything else is up to the listener, to make his own film. Jean-Hervé Péron has a little tip for us: Listen to the fish.

DakhaBrakha / Yama Warashi

dakhabrakha

DakhaBrakha is world music quartet from Kiev, Ukraine. Reflecting fundamental elements of sound and soul, Ukrainian “ethno-chaos” band DakhaBrakha, create a world of unexpected new music.

The name DakhaBrakha is original, outstanding and authentic at the same time. It means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture.

Live Soundtrack for “Earth”: In addition to their own performances, DakhaBrakha also performs their original live soundtrack alongside a screening of the classic 1930 film, “Earth”, by Aleksandr Dovzhenko (considered to be one of the most important films of the Soviet era). Dovzhenko is a master of composition, and the film—with its intense close-ups and the impressive expanses of the landscape—is a passionate tribute to the countryside, to nature, and to the people that work on it.

With support from Yama Warashi

Yama Warashi is formed by Bristol-based Japanese musician Yoshino Shigihara. Her songs are about nature, mushrooms, tangled relationships of humans and moon phases

Featuring The Lanes massive new L’Acoustic sound system.

Bowling will be closed during the performance

GNOD (R&D) / URUK

GNOD (R&D)

Gnod (R&D) is a stripped back version of the band consisting for this outing of Gnod co founders Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam.

After 10 years of Gnod with over 40 players passing through the ranks and collaborations with the likes of Charles HAYWARD,Faust, Anthony Child and White Hills to name but a few, Gnod (R&D) is a chance to hit the road and ‘research and develop’ sounds, places, people and atmospheres for the next stages of future Gnod performances.

R&D will find Paddy and Chris improvising with new instruments, sounds and ideas with the option of collaborating with various musicians along the way. There will be an open stage at Gnod (R&D) shows and people are encouraged to get involved be it singing, shouting, dancing, bringing an instrument/device to the table or just simply tuning in and coming along for the ride.

URUK

Massimo and Thighpaulsandra met in 2016.

Massimo being a longtime fan of Coil, and Thighpaulsandra a longtime fan of ZU, it was clear there was a common ground to go and create new music together.

After one year of meetings their first album comes out on the great belgian label Consouling Sounds in September 2017.

Echoes of Coil music and Zu music appear here and there but the duo maps an uncharted territory. This is organic electronic music.

The live show will have also VISUAL

The Le Pub Christmas Party feat. Rogora Khart

What the people are saying….

The Big Splash – Newport 2014

Rogora Khart should be headlining the Millennium Stadium…,

Not the Riverside Theatre in Zooport. Fantastic, crazy, deeply amusing Eastern European-influenced punky folky rock’n'roll… with a beautiful bonkers dancer who makes Bez look like Nick Clegg… and delivered with an off the scale energy that makes the Sex Pistols look like Kraftwerk.

Imagine the Pogues fronted by Dracula. Rogora Khart are UKIP’s worst nightmare.

For no other reason than that, see this wonderful band NOW!

Brecon Jazz 2013

Managed to catch this bunch of looney-tunes at Brecon Jazz, and very glad I did!

They were certainly one of the most entertaining bands I saw; a perfect end the Festival.

Outrageous make-up and songs such as “Love Like Vodka”,

“Humdigaro” and “Bettws Bhangra” were a full-frontal assault on all the senses!

Best laugh I’ve had in quite a while! Not to be missed!
