Seán McGowan

www.facebook.com/seanmcgowanmusicuk

One of the most exciting up and coming artists in the country. If Joe Strummer and Billy Bragg had a son who got stuck in the matter transporter from The Fly, but instead of a fly he got stuck in there with Frank Turner, and it turned out that he really really like playing DIY shows up and down the country with an acoustic guitar, then I think we’re close.

Whilst his influences are clear, Seán is in no way limited to them. His brutally honest and emotive songs offer glimpses into a talent for songwriting which is still rapidly developing. After gripping performances at The Louisiana and The Mother’s Ruin over the last couple of years, we’re incredibly proud to bring him to The Exchange for what is sure to be another incredible night.

Rory Matthews

Barry Adamson

Multi-disciplined and self taught musician, Barry Adamson is set to release his new solo studio album, Know Where To Run, on February 19, 2016. The album will be available as a download, on CD and vinyl on the aforementioned dates with a special edition photo book to follow later on in 2016.

Barry Adamson has been creating all of his life. He rose to prominence as the bass player in Magazine and toured extensively. His establishment as a solo artist came after a three year stint with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and heralded the release of his seminal first solo album, ‘Moss Side Story’.

Critically acclaimed, it raised Adamson’s name as a composer of diverse complexity; ab…le to tell a story with music, where the images were those supplanted in the minds of the listeners. Offers quickly followed and saw Adamson work with some of the film industry’s most intriguing mavericks including Derek Jarman, David Lynch, Oliver Stone and Danny Boyle.

Having released nine studio albums, including the 1992 Mercury Music Prize nominated ‘Soul Murder’, Adamson has continued to tour globally with his talents being in as much demand by new generations of artists, as he was after his first solo release.

Earlier this year Barry returned to the studio to begin recording the aforementioned soon to be released new solo album, Know Where To Run, which shows him embracing all of his diverse influences into a more commercial undertaking.

Produced by Barry and recorded at Church Road Recording Company, Brighton with old cohort Paul Pascoe, while additional production and mix was handled by WTNSS at Dean Street Studios. The idea behind the album and accompanying photo book came when Barry began taking photos during a tour of the U.S. and Canada with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Constantly sought across all art forms for commentary and contribution, Barry’s music has been used for documentaries, TV series, adverts, computer games and even an Olivier Award winning ballet performance by Sylvie Guillem and the Ballet Boyz.

It was always a logical progression for Adamson to move behind the camera and once again his brooding film noir style and dark comedy has seen him write, direct and score a number of short films. His latest offering, ‘The Swing The Hole and The Lie’, being shown at the Cannes Film Festival this year.

Rising phoenix like from the flames of his previous work, Adamson continues to push himself and blur the lines of film, music and art.

The Quireboys

Reborn rock and roll reprobates The Quireboys will be plugging in and partying hard after revealing plans to roll out the critically acclaimed Twisted Love tour beyond 2016.

A 10-date run of UK acoustic shows this December brings down the curtain on another landmark year for the supercharged six-piece.

But there’s no rest for the wicked where Spike and co. are concerned and the boys are back in town from March.

Lauded as their loudest and proudest album for 25 years, Twisted Love screams heartache, passion, tears and tension. And it’s time for the record’s most powerful themes to be unleashed.

“We made this record with a full-on rock and roll show in mind,” said guitarist… Guy Griffin. “The songs are some of the strongest we’ve ever written and that comes across best when all six of us are on stage and the volume is turned up.”

Not since the band’s early 90s heyday have The Quireboys sounded so compelling and so relevant. The bittersweet title track, bullish Breaking Rocks and terrific Ghost Train reveal a band going back to the future and back to what they always did best.

And if The Quireboys have proved themselves masters of an intimate and intriguing unplugged experience, then rocking out remains their traditional calling card.

“We played a handful of fully plugged shows in the UK earlier this year and the response to the new songs was tremendous,” added Griffin. “Those gigs gave us the confidence to dig deep into Twisted Love on the next tour and we can’t wait.”

Twisted Love is The Quireboys’ 10th studio album and the sound of a band enjoying a creative rebirth and a rich vein of songwriting form. More than 30 years after bursting onto the UK’s rock and roll scene their incendiary live shows continue to set the standard for the next generation of homegrown heroes.

All My Friends & Juxtaposed bring the cult math-rock of the brilliant Port Erin ahead of their new LP ‘Ocean Grey’

With magnetic musicality & tightly wound dives and grooves, Port Erin mix a milieu of sonic textures, with echoes of jazz, coupled with mechanical Krautrock undertones. They are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal.

Port Erin draw inspiration from the likes of XTC, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Morphine and Tortoise

The Louisiana, Bristol

£5adv Entry Requirements: 16+ (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)

Safehaus hail from the Glastonbury area in South West England. They consist of Ben Kench (guitar & vocals), Jim Kench (guitar, percussion, vocals), Robin Davey (guitar) and Paul O’Reilly (Bass).

The Safehaus track “Leave It All” was chosen as the soundtrack of the Dark Souls III trailer released in November 2016. See the trailer here: https://t.co/Fq5v80Phc5

The Dark Souls III trailer gave Safehaus huge publicity resulting in a significant increase in global interest in the band’s music. This interest including reviews across the web, a huge increase YouTube hits and downloads/streams and, significantly, a tweet from @pewdiepie to 9.5 million followers…

The recent EP “Lyft” was recorded in the studios of Cristian Barra lead singer and songwriter from the Italian band Madyon. Safehaus were in the middle of a mini tour and had 2 days to record the tracks for all 4 songs which was a challenge. the mixes were sent to the UK via a file-sharing site with the band returning reams of comments to-and –fro; they got there eventually. The mastering was also done by Cristian Barra.

The songs on the EP were mainly written by Ben (Kench) with the other band members contributing ideas. The music has a bit of all sorts of influences but Radiohead are probably a key influence with a sprinkle of the folksy style of Mumford and Sons. The vocal harmonies of the two brothers, which are such a feature in the band’s live performances provide a pretty compelling delivery of some great melody lines. The lyrics tend to focus on aspects of our existence which are strong enough to warrant an emotional response so there are bits of advice, anger, love and loss in equal measure.

These guys have played in a number of bands and solo projects over the years (including appearances at the Glastonbury Festival and supports with Jools Holland, the Alarm and Ezio) and were hand-picked by Ben in late 2015. Ben has been writing songs since he was in his early teens and his craft has taken a step up recently with a number of national and international collaborations. Safehaus deliver their sound with passion and style in equal measure and never fail to impress an audience. Recent supports with Red Sky July (Ally Mcerlaine (Texas), Shelly Poole (Alisha’s Attic), Charity Hair (The Alice Band) and an extensive tour of Europe have tightened the delivery and embedded the groups sound. The uplifting and compelling soundscape they create and the vocal harmonies of Ben and Jim have never been better. Likened to a mix of Radiohead and Mumford & Sons, the band have mastered a contemporary and mature sound and their EP “Lyft” is definitely not one to pass over.

MADYON

Madyon are an Italian rock band formed in 2012 by lead vocalist/guitarist Cristian Barra.

The other members of the band are Francesco Romano (guitar), Michele Cera (drums) and Paolo Bergese (Bass). Since the beginning the band joined the music industry with an international approach and a clear/detailed project.

Thanks to a good social media marketing strategy, they started a YouTube channel that fastly reached more than 2 millions views. From the first live show MADYON performed on the main stage of biggest festivals, as opening act of famous Italian and international artists like Jamiroquai and Elton john. On September, 6 2014 the band has released “Miracle EP” their first original EP, mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London. The EP entered the Italian’s iTunes Top 100 chart without any label.

After the release of a special single for UNICEF called ‘Your Love Is Not Enough’ on May, 20 2016 the band has released “Roll The Shadows EP” their second original EP, mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London. The EP entered the Italian’s iTunes Top 10 at the 9th position.

In 2016 they ended a tour of almost 30 dates all around Italy to promote the new EP and they performed also a special gig in London.

*NICK PARKER *

Glastonbury (UK) based Nick Parker was 13 when he first picked up a guitar and tried to string together a few chords. By 14 he had put down the guitar and picked up the mandolin. Not least of all because he wanted to be in his brother, Ant’s band and they needed a mandolin player. The first few gigs came and went, under the name ‘The Mandolin Brothers’ (genius) before they changed their name to ‘Why?’ (equally genius) and they spent the next 10 years bouncing around on stages at hundreds of venues around the UK and Europe, reeling out their folk/rock/skiffle (latterly known as friffle) sillyness to sweaty teens and twentysomethings. In February 1998 Nick finally put down his eight string and picked up a six (mainly because his fingers had gotten too fat for the intricacies of a mandolin) and started guitar band ‘Tobermory’. After various false starts, a few flirtations with industry ‘big’ boys and a few mini tours to Germany (including one where they went all the way to the east for a three gig weekend, two of which were cancelled) Tobermory played their last gig in 2004. ‘The Gadabout Crowd’ was next on Nick’s ‘to do’ list, which was more of a folky/rocky affair. The crowd dispersed after only a few months of gatherment and Nick decided to go it alone. Now under the name of ‘Nick Parker’ (again quite clever), Nick has released two full-length albums, 2010’s ‘The King of False Alarms’ and 2014’s ‘Angry Pork and the Occasional Bird’ on German label Tonetoaster Records. Starting to feel a bit lonely, Nick recruited a few mates who quickly became known as the False Alarms who took to traipsing around Europe with him, Tetrissing their drums, bass, guitars, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, lapsteel and accordion into the back of his tired old bandwagon. Playing his tongue-firmly- in-cheek folky/country/straggly songs, Nick’s shows – solo or with the False Alarms -are as intimate and light-hearted as they are passionate and downright sweaty.

BACKGROUND

Creative Republic of Cardiff is a new non-profit organisation which is reopening The Full Moon three weeks after it closed, set up by its former staff & friends.

The venue will reopen on Friday 28th April as a community-led, non-profit music & arts space. It has always been the people’s venue, so we are now asking you to help us reopen and rejuvenate Cardiff’s live music & creative culture.

We now have the keys, we secured the lease and are getting ready to reopen following all the support so far. Your contribution will go towards advance payments on the lease, along with licensing, legal fees and various costs associated with reopening as a fully functioning venue. Additional funds will allow us to make improvements, carry out maintenance and provide us with basic working capitol.

The previous downstairs venue was viable, however it became clear that it needs to be a non-profit, community-focused music & arts space, in order to realise its full potential.

Creative Republic of Cardiff will use the venue to establish an environment of collaboration, networking and knowledge sharing. It will nurture, develop, organise and showcase talent from Cardiff and beyond.

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD AND INVITE FRIENDS!

South Wales based indie folk roots band Rusty Shackle have been captivating audiences with their incredible live performances since early 2010. Their shows blend well crafted catchy tunes with stunning high-energy level performances which will make sure you’ll leave exhausted with their tunes swimming around your head for days afterwards.

They amalgamate guitars , vocal harmonies, fiddle, banjo, mandola, trumpet and percussion to create a sound that is unique to them and one that instantly fills you with emotion and energy. Rusty Shackle draw influences from Folk, Roots, Rock, Celtic and Old time Blues.

As well as playing masses of live shows the band have managed to release an EP and two albums over the past few years, with songs from all three gaining local and national airplay.

“… a wonderful album that would be very much appreciated by the legendary Robert Plant.” (Bob Harris, Radio 2)

“They really have understood what contemporary folk music is about and aimed it for the big stage.” (Fatea Showcase sessions)

“They mine a vein of grubby, ball-waggling folk that Mumford & Sons would baulk at whilst supping champers” (live music scene)

“Rusty Shackle come on like a punk Bellowhead or a poppier Pogues.” (A soundreaction)

“In making folk exciting and energetic, Rusty Shackle are certainly making a big impression in the world of live music. They truly are the perfect festival act. “ (skiddle.com)

JAMIE LENMAN

www.jamielenman.com

Jamie Lenman is best known as the singer, guitarist and songwriter for underground heroes Reuben, who toured and released relentlessly for most of the noughties. Their combination of brutal riffs, heartfelt melodies and frank, intelligent lyrics, together with their explosive live shows and innovative promo videos won them a hard core of dedicated fans and respect amongst peers and critics alike.

After a string of independent singles, regularly voted top of the MTV2 charts, the band released two albums with Xtra Mile (Frank Turner, Future Of The Left, Against Me!) and joined bands like Biffy Clyro, Fightstar and Billy Talent on tours around the UK and Europe. Upon their return, they founded thei…r own label, Hideous Records, through which they released a live DVD documentary and their third, critically acclaimed album, ‘In Nothing We Trust’.

Eventually, the pressure of being in the band as well as running their own label and working full time jobs became too much, and they called it a day in 2008, releasing a posthumous rarities collection through Xtra Mile in 2009.

Now, after an absence of five years, Jamie Lenman returns to the UK music scene with his colossal double album ‘Muscle Memory’, a twenty three-track behemoth ready to bend the mind of the willing listener. Recorded over two years with INWT producer Sean Genockey, ‘Muscle Memory’ splits the trademark Reuben sound in two, with one disc focussing on melody and other focussing on riffery.

Lenman, who has spent his time since the end of the band working as a professional illustrator, has brought all his skills to bear on the lavish artwork accompanying the record, released through Xtra Mile – the week Lenman turned 31.

AGMP presents

NEW STREET ADVENTURE

“Stubborn Sons” Tour

•support

Following on from 2014′s highly acclaimed debut album “No Hard Feelings” ( Acid Jazz ), New Street Adventure are back with their second album “Stubborn Sons” which was produced by Mitch Ayling from The Milk.

New Street Adventure are Nick Corbin (Vocals/Guitar), Ashley Hayden (Bass), Ben Wolfe (Drums), Max De Lucia (Keys) and Billy Farr (Guitar). Inspired by Bobby Womack, Neil Young, Black Ivory and Angie Stone the band recently toured the UK supporting The Rifles and have sold out The Jazz Cafe, 100 Club and 229 in London in 2016.

“Soul music has always had a huge impact on the UK, with successive generations appropriating stateside sounds and reworking them into something more indigenous. New Street Adventure are young Soul devotees who, though smitten with crackly 45s, sing songs about their contemporary lives and do so with a voice to match.”

MERCURY PRIZE

Every now and then a young band comes along who shake you from your reveries about pop’s golden past and remind you that there are still classic chapters to be written.

Raised on a steady diet of Mayfield, Womack, Smokey, and the brothers Gallagher, London band New Street Adventure blend the social commentary nous and grassroots of the Arctic Monkeys, the anthemic delivery and swell of Arcade Fire and the grit of The Black Keys. Alongside this sit the influences of the great soul artists from day’s-gone-by, who’ve left their imprint in culture with Motown floor-fillers and precious underground rarities.

Disgruntled by his university experience, Nick Corbin moved to London to put his skills of songwriting, singing and guitar playing to use and escaping his job working in a tourist shop. He’d written ‘The Big AC”, a song that instantly hit him having stepped into The 100 Club and re-discovering the euphoria of the soul music his dad had raised him on. He met musicians including Carmy Love, backing vocalist, and bass player Ashley Hayden, and they produced a four-track demo.

Nick, Carmy and Ashley were then joined by kindred talents and spirits in the form of Ollie Futcher on the drums, Charlie Myers on keys, Billy Lawrence on lead guitar and Emma Noble with backing vocals. With only demos to sell and give away, they took to the circuit venues of London. Six months on and having packed dancefloors such as The Monto, Hoxton Bar and Kitchen and The Barfly amongst others, with stomping, gazing and spinning of a uniquely diverse audience, the band had no more demo CD’s.

‘Borrowing’ a school’s recording studio, the band self-produced and released their debut EP in July 2012 earning champions such as XFM’s John Kennedy, BBC DJ Robert Elms (who told Music Week: “NSA are the finest young band I’ve seen emerge for many moons, I am expecting big things!”), NME Photographer Dean Chalkley, Q Magazine and The Guardian journalist Paul Moody plus artists Edwyn Collins, The View and Plan B.

All the while, they toured the UK selling out venues as far away as Dundee’s Reading Rooms, sold out their EP’s and limited edition 7” (complete with the authentic ‘big hole’) and started their own bi-monthly club-nights right back at the place that started it all, the legendary 100 Club, where they headlined and sold out each one of the five sweaty and exhilarating nights.

In January 2013, legendary label, Acid Jazz, off the back of high profile recognition of their 25th Anniversary, signed New Street Adventure. The band took to a Wood Green studio to co-produce and record before the ink was dry. Written and arranged by the band themeselves stabbing melodies of brass and swelling builds of strings contribute to the core seven making their vision of Brit-Soul come to full cinematic effect.

The album is now complete and New Street Adventure continue to build their already impressive independent fan-base having sold-out The Borderline twice this year as well as playing top clubnights across the country, Isle Of Wight Festival and debuting in Europe.

BACKGROUND

Creative Republic of Cardiff is a new non-profit organisation which is reopening The Full Moon three weeks after it closed, set up by its former staff & friends.

The venue will reopen on Friday 28th April as a community-led, non-profit music & arts space. It has always been the people’s venue, so we are now asking you to help us reopen and rejuvenate Cardiff’s live music & creative culture.

We now have the keys, we secured the lease and are getting ready to reopen following all the support so far. Your contribution will go towards advance payments on the lease, along with licensing, legal fees and various costs associated with reopening as a fully functioning venue. Additional funds will allow us to make improvements, carry out maintenance and provide us with basic working capitol.

The previous downstairs venue was viable, however it became clear that it needs to be a non-profit, community-focused music & arts space, in order to realise its full potential.

Creative Republic of Cardiff will use the venue to establish an environment of collaboration, networking and knowledge sharing. It will nurture, develop, organise and showcase talent from Cardiff and beyond.

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD AND INVITE FRIENDS!

Aggressive Management presents… October Drift / Kong

Aggressive Management Present

OCTOBER DRIFT

live at The Louisiana, Bristol

Special guests KONG

“…a muscular slug of sugar-coated power rock”- Q Magazine

“A flourishing reputation for live shows” – The Independent

Rising newcomers October Drift have gained a strong word-of-mouth following since exploding onto the music scene at the start of 2015.

Despite the early success of their incendiary debut singles – receiving support from Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy and Q magazine to name but a few – and string of sold-out gigs, this band still remain something of an enigma.

October Drift’s music is similarly ambiguous, characterised by their signature wall of sound guitars, soaring, ponderous vocals and driving, urgent drums.

The band have gained a reputation for delivering blistering, high-energy live shows. Indeed, their first tour sold out before even releasing their first single, such is the buzz around their live performances.

With a strong DIY ethos, the band record everything themselves in their own studio and even hand-make much of their own merchandise. This organic approach led them to a complete shun of social media throughout 2015.

But that’s all set to change as the band’s word-of-mouth following continues to grow and the music press begin to take notice of October Drift’s melancholic growl.

Swagger and muscle, charm and wit, Chron Goblin pair melody with aggression and groove for a fresh interpretation of heavy. Following the success of 2013′s sophomore album Life for the Living and touring in the UK, USA and Canada, the band’s third full length album Backwater was recorded by Adam Pike (Red Fang), in Portland, OR at Toadhouse Studios, and will be released worldwide by Ripple Music on Nov. 13th, 2015.

Excellent Skeleton (Album Launch) / Esuna / Guide Dog

Quite probably three of the best original loud guitar bands from Cardiff under one big top!

Grunge-garage-alternative-rock & roll 3-Piece Excellent Skeleton take the stage of this new (and already) legendary venue as they launch their brand new debut album, ‘Dear Fear’. With two of the songs already featured in the space of a month on BBC Radio, their feedback-drenched melodic tunes are gritty, alive, fresh and honest. The album is a beast too.

It’s a great honour for Excellent Skeleton to play with the likes of Esuna and Guide Dog : both are mind-blowingly good and an inspiration to the Skellies. It’s a triple headliner to be honest: We can’t possibly follow either of these two bands.

Fb: https://www.facebook.com/excellentskeletonband/

BBC Radio: https://soundcloud.com/user-999227452-7212428/think-ill-run-bbc-radio-wales-adam-walton-110217

Esuna: simply one of the tightest bands in living existence with an appropriate sense of humility and honesty. Loud. Precise. Fck. They are too good to be not headlining this bill.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/esunaband/

Web: http://esunaband.com/

Guide Dog: ridiculously infectious and impossible not to become an instant obsession with this 3-Piece. That guitar sound playing off the bass and drums. Truly remarkable. Fck. They should also be headlining this bill.

Now back with new album Impressions, an epic and majestic effort, they’re ready to blow crowds away.

7:30pm | £10 | 14+

“The Stands? A fine band, sadly missed. I’ll never forget the soundcheck at The Royal Court in Liverpool supporting Oasis in 2002… blew us all away.” Noel Gallagher

“I remember going down to London to play piano for The Stands. I lost my shit because Noel Gallagher was there and he told me that Howie said I’d nail my part in three takes. 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”

Bill Ryder Jones

Following on from the recent, well-received vinyl re-release of his 2009 debut solo album ‘Bright Light Ballads’, Howie Payne has announced a headline tour – backed by a full band – plus a brand new box set from the still-much-loved band that brought him to the attention of the world: The Stands.

‘The Stands Recordings 2003 – 2005’ set is a box set collection of 3 vinyl LPs, the first two featuring alternate, rare, remixed and unreleased versions of tracks spanning 2003 – 2005, while the third features a whole host of Howie Payne’s unreleased demos. Presented on coloured, heavyweight vinyl with new sleevenotes, written by Howie, which detail the incredible journey of his band.

Howie Payne’s upcoming tour with new backing band The Band Of The Sun will feature songs by The Stands, songs from ‘Bright Light Ballads’, plus brand new songs from his forthcoming second solo album, due later this year. This is a chance for those who were there originally to celebrate this amazing music, and for those too young to have experienced the Stands the first time around to get a glimpse of what they missed – and what’s to come in the future from Howie Payne.

Vicky Speedboat / Special Guests / Clarity

Vicky Speedboat were literally formed in Le Pub. Now they finally get to play!

It was 2am in Newport, Wales when the grim phone call finally got through. Will was behind the bar pulling pints of Spanish lager as Sean got word from a stateside relative. Evidence of tragedy was palpable in the air, contrasting starkly with the inebriated jubilance that filled the dimly lit basement pub. It was in that moment that Vicky Speedboat was born.

Vicky Speedboat, the two-piece punk rock outfit from Philadelphia, is the drunken creative brainchild of Sean Huber (Modern Baseball, Steady Hands) and Will Lindsay (W. C. Lindsay, Steady Hands). Their songs are allegories of the road, tales of restlessness and staying on the run. Bathed in feedback, contrasts of intoxicating glee and gut wrenching loss span their debut EP Two Years No Basement. The EP was written across the map and recorded in 2015 at Kennedy Studios in Burlington, MA by Steve Aliperta and Chris LaRoque (The Color and Sound).

The band’s sound, reminiscent of a bygone era, is defined by their high-energy aggressive punk instrumentation mixed seamlessly with their character driven lyricism. Lindsay provides loud, harshly distorted but melodic guitars, fitting seamlessly with the bombastic and aggressive drumming of Huber. Both members act as vocalists and story-tellers.

Nick Jonah Davis – Guitarist

Nick Jonah Davis is a solo instrumental guitarist based in rural Derbyshire. He has released four albums – Split Electric with C Joynes on Thread Recordings (2016), House of Dragons on Lancashire and Somerset (2015), Of Time and Tides on the seminal American label Tompkins Square (2011) and Guitar Recordings Vol. 1..

‘Nottingham-based Nick Jonah Davis is a formidable guitarist in the tradition of Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, etc. Though there’s a clear comparison to be made with the monolithic John Fahey, perhaps there’s a more British sensibility to his playing. Making use of modal tunings to create a resonating whole, Davis’s spindly melodies sometimes hither and thither on top, whilst at other times forthright lines are prominent.The effect is always a thoroughly rich and nourishing, highly spirited series of wordless tales.’ – Crushing Death and Grief

All My Friends & Joy Collective present… Sharkmuffin / Masts / VAN-illa

Sharkmuffin is Tarra Thiessen and Natalie Kirch, a duo of Brooklynite sirens bred from the waves of the Jersey shore. Influenced by everyone from Nirvana to The Ronettes, Sharkmuffin adds a unique jagged edge onto ‘60s beach pop meets ‘90s alt sound, a genre lovingly dubbed “opti-mystic glam-grunge.” Sharkmuffin has been creating a veritable whirlpool of musical chaos – their 2015 debut LP Chartreuse is their most vicious lure, featuring 10 tracks that bleed heavily with feminine rage and cheeky sass alike.

Sharkmuffin is currently mixing their sophomore effort to-be-titled Tsuki, touring the country with their 1995 Dodge Caravan Patrick with Drew Adler on drums & Chris Nunez on guitar, and plan to serve up their signature cocktails and ice cream by inventing the first punk rock brunch truck.

With Masts, Van-illa & more

“Sharkmuffin are either the most glam garage band around, or the grungiest glam band around.” – NPR

“Their sound is energetic and wild, fitting for a band with a name like theirs. It’s rough and raw and soaked in whisky, just the way the best bands are.“ – The Village Voice

Lori Goldston / Halftone + DJ Howard Jacques

An evening of ‘in the moment’ improv; music, visuals and records set in the improv venue of a former working men’s club.

£7/£5 on the door

Lori Goldston

Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher from Seattle. Goldston’s voice as a cellist, acoustic or amplified, is both rough and refined. Her music moves easily across borders and genres, often in collaboration with bands, composers, improvisors, choreographers, writers and film-makers, including Earth, Mirah, Nirvana, David Byrne, Stuart Dempster, Greg Kelley, Ellen Fullman, Jherek Bischoff, Broken Water, O Paon and many, many others. She has released solo albums on Mississippi Records and Sub Rosa, and will release a duo with Jessika Kenney later this year on Mexico’s Substrata.

With visuals for Lori’s perofrmance by BEEF members Melanie Clifford who works in the translation between moving image, sound, drawing, broadcast, material and site, with research interests bridging art and neuroscience. Her work includes silent film and constructing visual scores for variable sound interpretation – soliciting sensitivity to detail, to minor fluctuations and structural disintegrity.

Halftone

Bristol’s Halftone explore the conventions and boundaries of their traditional instruments through unconventional techniques. Caitlin Alais Callahan (double bass), Tina Hitchens (flute), Yvonna Magda (violin), and Hannah Marshall (cello) translocate from the solo virtuosic tradition to enter a more exploratory, irreverent and collectively-driven realm. The foursome create compelling vocabularies and organic sonic architectures that consider the dynamics of space, subtlety, silence and unity. ‘(Halftone) play an unsettling, absently beautiful post-classical music evoking wind in the trees, unresolved conversations and difficulties around corners’

With visuals for Lori’s perofrmance by BEEF members Laura Phillips who is interested in obsolescence and precarity as narrative devices. Questions about how we come to know an object; its temperament, texture, colour, hue and smell. Her work aims to explore the complexity of resonance and incongruence between sound/image, often using a mixture of photochemical processes, found sounds and digital imagery.

Afiach & A-Grrrls present… Ren Aldridge / Jenn Hart / Efa Supertramp

MORE INFO SOON ABOUT WHICH ACTIVIST GROUP WE’LL BE RAISING MONEY FOR & THE LOCAL ACTS! Save the date & spread the word!!!!!

BEERS CHEAP FROM £2.80 up.

THIS GIG IS ALL AGES! :-)

The gig is upstairs – we will try our best to accomodate wheelchair users: there is a stair lift (not ideal) but once you’re upstairs all the doors are double doors.

Part of the W R I O T E Tour ’17 – a tour of music, speech and poetry exploring DIY spaces and themes of movement, identity, feminism and activism.

REN ALDRIDGE

Ren fronts feminist hardcore punk band Petrol Girls, but also does a load of other art/ music/ writing projects which she’s trying to mush together into a coherent live set for this Wriot Women tour. Before Petrol Girls, she toured a lot solo as renspitsatmagpies, with acoustic band Feralus and on backing vocals for Mike Scott. The plan is to go back to this starting point, and make a set that mixes acoustic music with spoken word, performance art and zine reading. This will probably include stuff from her zine MWMW, old or strange acoustic versions of Petrol Girls songs, and stuff from her new collaboration with Pete Miles: PASTE.

JENN HART

Jenn Hart is a poet and musician living in Bristol. Her poetry is sharp and witty as she rips apart the stigmas of mental health, class, education, love and friendship, and growing up in a punk scene, far from perfect.

In 2013 Jenn released a zine of poems Scraped Knees and Sob Stories and it was so good someone got the cover art tattooed in their leg. She set off on a DIY spoken word tour (Riot Nrrrds) with fellow punk poet Henry Raby in 2014 and released her first official pamphlet Better Watch Your Mouth with Burning Eye Books in April 2017.

‘Jenn’s voice is smart and surprising, and she drags us by the hand through all the things she knows about what it can mean to be young (and especially to be a young woman), without a cliche in sight.’ – Sally Jenkinson

EFA SUPERTRAMP

Efa Supertramp is a folk punk grrrl armed with just an acoustic guitar and a powerful voice. With her passionate attitude for performing and DIY culture, she’s been making a name for herself in the underground punk and folk scene with her truthful attitude to life and politics. Originally from Wales, now based in London, Efa sings in both English and Welsh, her mother-tongue language. Her songs are angry but uplifting, she hates money, power, greed and inequality, but loves living life as free as she can.

“Blessed with a beautifully powerful voice, she’s one of the most potent political songwriters around.” – The Morning Star

Toby Hay (Album Launch) / David Ian Roberts / Sky Barkers

Gwdihw are delighted to welcome an intricate evening of masterful melodies & captivating contemporary Folk as we bring back the magical Toby Hay ahead of his debut LP, ‘The Gathering’.

Toby Hay manages to marry craft and melody like few others in contemporary Welsh Folk. His appreciation of the melancholic and melodic voice of his guitar lies in the melding of experimental picking style but one that conjures elemental power and grace. For fans of John Renbourne, Bert Jansch or modern folk like The Gentle Good, this will be unmissable.

With support from David Ian Roberts & Sky Barkers.

“The tracks of this album – quick-fingered, deep-felt – open landscapes in the mind’s eye. It feels, listening to them, as if they have a little of the power – the power that linguists call ‘illocutionary’ and magicians call ‘conjuring’ – to summon things into being, or bring pasts briefly back to life. Place, memory, nature, loss and dreamed-of geographies are the subjects of this beautiful music: that gathering of feelings that go by ‘hiraeth’. There is a sadness at what has gone here, but not a nostalgia. The world’s dew gleams on this music, but the world’s dust swirls through it too.”

Two albums and an EP in, Surf Curse are trodding all the way through the dry and deep from Nevada, to us in Cardiff.

The Brackish / Chairfight / Olanza

The time has finally come! Olanza have been trying to sort out a damn show with The Brackish for years. Literally. We also see the return of the mighty Chairfight. This is definitely a decent gig to get yourself to on a school night.

Ox

Brackish

The Brackish are a thrillingly unique instrumental band formed in 2013, featuring alumni of This is the Kit, Zun Zun Egui and The Liftmen. At the core of the music are tight arrangements combined with improvisation, featuring interplay between two distinctive guitar voices. The broad vocabulary of the music – psychedelic, metal, jazz, kraut … – echoes Steve Reich, Sabbath, Can and Tortoise.

Scoring a #1 album just weeks ago back in their native Australia, DUNE RATS bring their ‘The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit’ tour to Bristol!

Unlike that of their first record which was written and recorded during frantic sessions that lasted just a couple of weeks, the band relocated to Los Angeles, taking time to carve the record into a bratty pop-punk gem with their close friend and touring pal Zac Carper from FIDLAR on production duties.

GNOD

[Salford, Manchester]

(Rocket Recordings)

https://gnod.bandcamp.com/

“Fiercely independent, never comfortable in one place artistically for any duration of time, always with their co-ordinates set on uncharted territory and the next challenge ahead, and delivering a monument of ire and iconoclasm.”

“Gnod have no outer edges: new moons, planets and black holes are formed in the deep space around their central solar system all the time.” – The Guardian

“Quite possibly the best band in the Universe” – The Quietus

*****************************************************

Friday night will commence in the notorious city-centre venue The Island. The former police station and prison cells is now home to an acclaimed arts-complex, whilst the basement houses Bristol’s best dancefloor: a dark tunnel with no sound limit…

GNOD will headline proceedings, with a now-rare set of intense improv electronics. You might’ve caught one of these sets in the crypt with Shit and Shine, or at the Church of St. Thomas with Roly Porter and Killing Sound. Anyone who bore witness, can attest to the mind-altering effects of these shows.

Local support comes from Giant Swan and Organchrist, two of Bristol’s fiercest and most energetic live electronic acts. Both originating in the DIY noise underground, they now spend their time subverting the constrictions of techno and dance music.

Warming things up are SCHWET, resident DJs on Noods Radio and at The Surrey Vaults. Expect the usual unusual.

Also glad to welcome Gesamtkunstwerk to Bristol for the first time, closing up shop propa. The experimental club-night ran at the Islington Mill in Salford (home of GNOD). These nights revelled in post-industrial sonic brutalism, disorientation and expanding the ideas of what a club can be. Over a couple of years they managed to host shows for the likes of; Kevin Drumm, Basic House, Helm, Damien Dubrovnik, Vatican Shadow, Dead Fader, Machine Woman and Bunker Records’ Guy Tavares. Some of the GNODbods would usually perform live, either collectively or in one of their numerous solo aliases, which leads us on nicely to Saturday…

*****************************************************

Day two will take place across the road, in the medieval Crypt of St. John the Baptist. GNOD played an unforgettable set here, almost four years ago. This time they will perform under their respective solo guises. Not sure exactly what you’ll hear, but usual touch-stones include meditational drones, dubbed-out riddims and industrial technot. If that weren’t enough, we’ve also got three sets from good friends of the band and ourselves.

Zamzamrec bosses’ Heloise & Olmo return to Bristol from their rural French idyll to perform as ZOH/astre. From Barcelona’s Màgia Roja, we welcome back Futuro de Hierro (Ordre Etern/Qa’a). Finally, from Cardiff comes STOMACK, AKA Lerango & Kaskie of The Death of Money.

*****************************************************

By the time Sunday comes around, we’re expecting to all be a tad tender…So what better way to spend the Sabbath than absorbing an evening of subdued and sombre ambient sets, upstairs in the Church of St. John the Baptist!

The main event will be a debut live collaboration between Anthony Child and GNOD. As Surgeon (and as British Murder Boys with Regis), Child has spent the last 25 years at the forefront of UK techno. For this evenings show however, they will expand on their recent release ‘Under the Lids’ for Telsa Tapes.

GNOD will also perform an improvised set alongside Bristol duo KURO黒, featuring violinist Agathe Max and double-bass from Gareth Turner.

Earlier in the day you’ll be able to catch two of Bristol’s most exciting composers, Miguel Prado (Nzumbe) and Ocean Floor, both making good use of the pipe organ at the rear of the church. To complete the bill we have the Halftone quartet performing an acoustic set. Collectively the four women “explore the conventions and boundaries of their traditional instruments through unconventional techniques.”

Grace Petrie & The Benefits Culture

Grace Petrie is a folk singer, songwriter, and activist from Leicester, UK. She first exploded on to the national protest scene in 2010 with the emotive anthem Farewell to Welfare, which captured perfectly the spirit of the new wave of dissent in austerity Britain. Since then, she has written, recorded and toured relentlessly. Her unique takes on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered have won over audiences everywhere, and she has quietly become one of the most respected and prolific songwriters working in the UK today.

Grace’s young career boasts four studio albums, a dedicated fan base and national tours supporting Emmy the Great, Billy Bragg and comedians Robin Ince and Josie Long, as well as a string of festival appearances including regular visits to Latitude and Glastonbury. She has collaborated with some of the most respected names in folk, including Leon Rosselson, Roy Bailey and Peggy Seeger. In 2015 she completed a Canadian tour, culminating in a hugely successful performance at the main stage of Vancouver Folk Festival. She is a frequent guest on BBC Radio 4’s the Now Show and has appeared on Channel 4’s Random Acts, and has been featured in The Guardian, Diva Magazine and the Independent on Sunday’s 2013 Pink List of influential LGBT figures.

“Fiercely independent, never comfortable in one place artistically for any duration of time, always with their co-ordinates set on uncharted territory and the next challenge ahead, and delivering a monument of ire and iconoclasm.”

“Gnod have no outer edges: new moons, planets and black holes are formed in the deep space around their central solar system all the time.” – The Guardian

“Quite possibly the best band in the Universe” – The Quietus

*****************************************************

Friday night will commence in the notorious city-centre venue The Island. The former police station and prison cells is now home to an acclaimed arts-complex, whilst the basement houses Bristol’s best dancefloor: a dark tunnel with no sound limit…

GNOD will headline proceedings, with a now-rare set of intense improv electronics. You might’ve caught one of these sets in the crypt with Shit and Shine, or at the Church of St. Thomas with Roly Porter and Killing Sound. Anyone who bore witness, can attest to the mind-altering effects of these shows.

Local support comes from Giant Swan and Organchrist, two of Bristol’s fiercest and most energetic live electronic acts. Both originating in the DIY noise underground, they now spend their time subverting the constrictions of techno and dance music.

Warming things up are SCHWET, resident DJs on Noods Radio and at The Surrey Vaults. Expect the usual unusual.

Also glad to welcome Gesamtkunstwerk to Bristol for the first time, closing up shop propa. The experimental club-night ran at the Islington Mill in Salford (home of GNOD). These nights revelled in post-industrial sonic brutalism, disorientation and expanding the ideas of what a club can be. Over a couple of years they managed to host shows for the likes of; Kevin Drumm, Basic House, Helm, Damien Dubrovnik, Vatican Shadow, Dead Fader, Machine Woman and Bunker Records’ Guy Tavares. Some of the GNODbods would usually perform live, either collectively or in one of their numerous solo aliases, which leads us on nicely to Saturday…

*****************************************************

Day two will take place across the road, in the medieval Crypt of St. John the Baptist. GNOD played an unforgettable set here, almost four years ago. This time they will perform under their respective solo guises. Not sure exactly what you’ll hear, but usual touch-stones include meditational drones, dubbed-out riddims and industrial technot. If that weren’t enough, we’ve also got three sets from good friends of the band and ourselves.

Zamzamrec bosses’ Heloise & Olmo return to Bristol from their rural French idyll to perform as ZOH/astre. From Barcelona’s Màgia Roja, we welcome back Futuro de Hierro (Ordre Etern/Qa’a). Finally, from Cardiff comes STOMACK, AKA Lerango & Kaskie of The Death of Money.

*****************************************************

By the time Sunday comes around, we’re expecting to all be a tad tender…So what better way to spend the Sabbath than absorbing an evening of subdued and sombre ambient sets, upstairs in the Church of St. John the Baptist!

The main event will be a debut live collaboration between Anthony Child and GNOD. As Surgeon (and as British Murder Boys with Regis), Child has spent the last 25 years at the forefront of UK techno. For this evenings show however, they will expand on their recent release ‘Under the Lids’ for Telsa Tapes.

GNOD will also perform an improvised set alongside Bristol duo KURO黒, featuring violinist Agathe Max and double-bass from Gareth Turner.

Earlier in the day you’ll be able to catch two of Bristol’s most exciting composers, Miguel Prado (Nzumbe) and Ocean Floor, both making good use of the pipe organ at the rear of the church. To complete the bill we have the Halftone quartet performing an acoustic set. Collectively the four women “explore the conventions and boundaries of their traditional instruments through unconventional techniques.”

JUNIORE are from Paris and play psych, garage, surf and classic French pop. Fusing 60s influences like NICO and FRANCOISE HARDY, their sound is at once haunting and rhythmic, propelled by reverb-drenched melodies – fans of BROADCAST, STEREOLAB, JANE WEAVER, WHYTE HORSES should definitely taken a listen. http://www.heyjuniore.bandcamp.com/

ANI GLASS is a Welsh electronic pop musician and artist. Fiercely proud of her heritage, Glass sings in her native languages Welsh and Cornish and last year released ‘Y Ddawns’, the first single from EP ‘Ffrwydrad Tawel’.

“Y Ddawns is a double-edged sword that’s as stern as it is hopeful; music for the end of the world, and the start of a new one” – Pitchfork http://www.facebook.com/aniglasscymru

TARSIERS “..channelling the vocal range of Sparks’ Russell Mael and Robert Plant in an unearthly and vividly kooky performance… Merging rewired funk with progressive elements, the set found traction with the art rock number Lipstick, the saxophonist’s delivery adding a dance punk edge to the ensemble’s already hybrid sound..” – Buzz Magazine

GEMMA AND THE OWLS are a fairly new folk/indie/rock band from Cardiff, with upbeat riffs and pleasing harmonies. Here’s the title track of their debut EP: https://youtu.be/nvUaYC_4p4M http://www.facebook.com/gatobanduk

“Equal parts Van Morrison and Ray Lamontagne, Vance is in possession of one of music’s most remarkable voices” Evening Standard

On The Wild Swan, Foy Vance’s effortlessly soulful tones showcase everything we’ve come to expect from the passionate singer songwriter.

He uses his unique, whispy baritone to tell vivid stories of love, lost hope and broken down relationships. Entwined with building strings and swooning synths, it was a stunning record that will speak to Ben Howard lovers just as much as it will connect with David Bowie fans.

THE THYME MACHINE

http://www.thethymemachine.co.uk/

https://www.facebook.com/thethymemachine/

Lancaster Indie-pop four-piece The Thyme Machine are fronted by the enigmatic Kriss Foster, a man who loves Vimto, football, and pencil museums.

Musically the band sound like the ba*stard love children of Half Man Half Biscuit and The Wedding Present, with tiny hints of Frank Sidebottom, John Shuttleworth and Tommy Cooper! Expect songs about zombies, robots, statues, football, taxidermy, falling in love and supermarkets!

Sample song titles include:

‘I’m in Love with the Girl in the Argos Catalogue’

‘Wear Your Favourite Jumper’

‘Second Choice Goalkeeper’

‘Racoon In The Kitchen’

‘My Dad Collects Batteries’

and many more!

Last August Kriss took his one-man show ‘The Very Small Museum’ to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to great reviews. He also played an acoustic set on the steam train at last year’s Indietracks festival in Derbyshire. Meanwhile The Thyme Machine have also previously played at Indietracks, and are now embarking on their 3rd UK tour. Expect songs old and new.

GAVIN OSBORN

https://www.facebook.com/gavosborn/

“Gavin Osborn writes minutely detailed, bittersweet story-songs on an acoustic guitar and sings them with a comic timing usually absent from the works of his anti-folk contemporaries. Funny and touching, Osborn walks a similar tightrope to Loudon Wainwright III” – Comedian Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times

Originally from Bedford but has resided in the Bristol/Bath area for several years, singer-songwriter Gavin Osborn returns to home fresh from his recent string of shows in Melbourne, Australia, with the comedian and storyteller Daniel Kitson.

TOPS

For their third and most ambitious album to date, Montreal’s TOPS reach peak dream-pop with “Sugar At The Gate”. Like nearly everything TOPS does, multiple meanings overlap with the album’s title referring to orgasm, but also to carrot chasing, gatekeeping, and the social contract.

Released to the masses on 2nd June makes Bristol the sort-of-official album release party, so please don the most glittery thing your wardrobe will allow and show some Canucks how it’s shaken.

The Songs Of Brian Eno

The Songs of Brian Eno is a retrospective of pre-ambient Eno, featuring material from Another Green World and Before And After Science, as well as his collaboration with David Byrne, My Life In the Bush of Ghosts.

Released over forty years ago, Eno’s songs were overshadowed by his groundbreaking ambient works and stellar production career, but as this meticulous recreation demonstrates, his innovative ‘systems’ approach to songwriting, and oblique musical decision making, proved to be hugely influential.

Performed by an eight-piece ‘double’ ensemble with live stereo sound treatments, guest vocalists, film and image projection, theatre and choreography, the experience is both cerebral and moving, reflecting Eno’s own ideas on ‘seductive reasoning’.

Blood Ceremony

www.facebook.com/bloodceremonyrock

Canada’s prog/psych/folk rockers BLOOD CEREMONY’s distinct sound fuses progressive rock elements with folk and an early ’70s downer vibe.

A celebration of Euro-horror, ’60s saturnalia and occult miscellanea, they released their 2008 self-titled debut album before touring Europe in 2009 with Brit doom legends Electric Wizard, including a show at Bristol Trinity Centre.

‘Living With The Ancients’, Blood Ceremony’s 2011 sophomore album – recorded in Chicago by Sanford Parker (Minsk, Corrections House) -, expanded on the group’s dark and regal sound. They hit the road in support of this, performing at the prestigious Roadburn Festival and opening for GHOST on a 13-date North American tour amongst others.

2013’s third album, ‘The Elderitch Dark’ (mastered by Nick Blagona; Deep Purple, Rainbow) is a full-length paean to the darker corners of folklore and legend. In the wake of its release, the band joined KYLESA on a six-week North American tour and co-headlining Rise Above Records 25th anniversary show in London, UK.

March 2016 saw the release of fourth album, ‘Lord of Misrule’, before a return to Roadburn Festival and now, a 2017 return to the UK including their first visit to Bristol since their fantastic 2014 Temples Festival set, where they played right before headliners Electric Wizard and Brutal Turth.

Healthy Mind: Radio Glamorgan/Cardiff Mind Fundraiser feat. Nicotine Pretty / Falling Stacks / Mike Dennis / Little Rêd + more

Healthy Mind is a lip-smackin thirst-quenchin’ one-off all-dayer to raise money for Radio Glamorgan and Cardiff Mind Ltd. Both charities keep the residents of Cardiff and beyond chugging along in their own special ways so we’ve invited some ace musical acts to help us.

The event is being organised by Ben Gallivan and Bill Cummings who present Citizen’s Band on Radio Glamorgan, part of the team who also brought you the hugely successful Cardiff Mind Fest in 2013.

There’ll be PLENTY of music. Some of the acts confirmed so far are;

Nicotine Pretty (ex-Sick Livers frontman Ginge with brand new tunes)

Falling Stacks (spiky, post-punk from Bristol)

Mike Dennis (excellent rapper & MC, excellent violinist)

Little Rêd (the new electro-pop project from Ellie Makes Music)

There’ll be lots more announced so keep your eyes peeled on this page.

There will also be some open mic slots throughout the day (MCd by the amazing Mike Dennis) so if you want to bring your guitar, voice (or both) or whatever else you choose, then roll on up. We will also have a raffle taking place with some excellent prizes provided by local businesses.

If there’s any time for music in between the live music then we’ll be taking requests in the DJ booth!

Tickets priced £10adv are on sale now (ignore the poster, it’s an idiot).. Any open mic performers will have to buy tickets but will be rewarded with drinks tokens – ALL profits will be split equally between Cardiff Mind and Radio Glamorgan.

Burning Lantern Fayre

Burning Lantern is a brand new music event for Wales, a family country fayre in St Fagans, the national focal point for the celebration of Welsh culture, with international performers Tom Odell, Jack and Savoretti.

Burning Lantern will light up St Fagans with a main stage featuring live music through the day, with street food and craft ales, amusements and entertainment creating a family fayre in one of Wales’ leading tourist attractions.

St Fagans is a Welsh national treasure and such a beautiful setting for an event of this kind. We’re working with the team there to bring to life a music event with a country fayre feel – with mainstream, big name acts on stage, and plenty to keep youngsters occupied in the buildings and features around the parkland.

St Fagan’s National History Museum contains over forty original buildings from different historical periods, including farmhouses, a school, a chapel, Workmen’s Institute, row of terraced cottages and a working blacksmiths – all lovingly relocated from across Wales, and recently revamped with the addition of new features.

Musical Line-Up

Renowned for his electrifying, charismatic stage performances, singer songwriter Tom Odell won the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award in 2013 and followed that with an Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year the following year. His debut studio album, Long Way Down went Platinum, along with his best known single, Another Love. His second studio album, Wrong Crowd, was released in June and charted at Number 2. Tom was discovered by Lily Allen, the singer and founder of his record label In The Name Of, who has compared Tom’s on stage energy to that of David Bowie, witnessed this summer at Glastonbury and V Festival and across the UK and Europe.

Singer Jack Savoretti has had two UK Top 10 albums, including Written in Scars in 2015, become a familiar face on TV, and enjoyed a sold-out headline worldwide tour, including UK dates in November.

Around The Site

The main stage will be set up in a field in the heart of the village, and various buildings such as the Cockpit and areas of the parkland will host entertainment and workshops for youngsters such as circus skills, pony rides, arts and crafts, an acoustic stage on the village green, plus plenty of street food and craft ales to keep the party going.

St Fagans National History Museum

St Fagans is one of Europe’s leading open-air museums, a heritage attraction visited by millions that is a rite of passage for Welsh youngsters eager to discover their cultural history down the ages amongst 100 acres of beautiful parkland.

A 16th century manor house, St Fagans Castle and gardens was donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth in 1946, and over the years it has become a centre for education, enlightenment and entertainment. Though there have been numerous events staged there over the years, this is the first large scale music event to be held at the attraction.

Logistics

Gates will open at 3.30 and tickets are £45, and £22.50 for 5-15 year olds, with under 5s free. Parking is limited so fayre-goers are being encouraged to use public transport, park and ride and car share.

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.

Forest Swords

Mon 16 Oct 2017

£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.
