Vic Godard & The Subway Sect

Vic's musical adventure which has taken him from post-punk to postman began in 1976 when he formed the Subway Sect with assorted South London soul boys, Rob Symmons (aka Simmons/Miller) on guitar, Paul Myers on bass & Ray Price on drums (replaced later in 76 by Paul Packham (aka Smith) then Mark Laff, then Bob Ward). They formed at the suggestion of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren (who wanted another band for the line-up of the 100 Club Punk Festival) after spotting Vic, Rob & Paul at a Sex Pistols gig. Despite their inexperience, Subway Sect made a successful debut at the festival. They went on tour with The Clash on their White Riot Tour in 1977, as well as becoming a regular feature on the new Punk scene. They released their debut single, Nobody's Scared' / 'Don't Split It, in March 1978 on Braik Records, a label owned by Bernie Rhodes, who managed both The Subway Sect and The Clash. Rhodes however subsequently sacked all the band except Godard and the original Subway Sect ceased to exist. The album was never released, although the classic single from the sessions 'Ambition' was released on Rough Trade Records, with the B-side 'Different Story (Rock and Roll Even)' also taken from the same sessions. The single was a major hit on the alternative charts. A further track 'Parallel Lines' was released from these sessions as a track on the C81 cassette produced by NME magazine. The original tapes from the 1978 album were lost. Godard re-formed Subway Sect in 1980 with new musicians and released the album 'What's The Matter Boy?' The influence of London soul/funk contributors The Black Arabs and the Chimes brothers on this LP produced a poppier, more soulful, sound. Following a summer tour with Buzzcocks, Subway Sect disbanded again. Vic was employed by Bernie Rhodes as a songwriter. Read more here TICKETS

Oberres Presents EATS EVERYTHING

Few producers in the history of dance music have made such a rapid and far-reaching impact on the electronic music scene as Eats Everything aka Daniel Pearce. This larger-than-life beat maker is at the forefront of a swathe of talented producers to come out of the West Country Bass Epicentre known as Bristol, defining an entirely new strand of forward-thinking underground music.  Dan’s journey began in 2011 with the fittingly titled debut ‘Entrance Song’ on Catz N Dogz’ ‘Pets’ imprint, which was championed by the likes of Seth Troxler, Carl Cox, and Jamie Jones. Dan’s next two bass-laden bombs, ‘The Size’ and ‘Tric Trac’ were picked up by Claude Von Stroke for hisflagship Dirtybird label and the rest, as they say, is history.  Gobbling a path accross clubland with unstoppable force, his first twelve months saw Dan surpass a number of milestones. He won DJ Magazine’s ‘Best British DJ’, became the only DJ ever to do two BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes within the space of a year, and was charted at #13 in Resident Advisor’s Top DJs poll. Releases like ‘Jagged Edge’ and ‘Vertigo’ attained “underground dancefloor anthem” status, meaning Dan’s figure would be in the limelight for some time to come. He has also released remixes for a broad selection of labels, adding his midas touch to the likes of Jamie Jones, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Four Tet. His blinding ‘Reruff’ of Justin Martin’s ‘Ruff Stuff’ was one of the biggest tunes of 2013. 2014 saw Dan bring fresh life to a modern classic with his majestic remix of Disclosure’s ‘F For You’ and also contributing the lead track, ‘Adam’, from 20/20 Vision’s 20th Anniversary compilation, ‘Content’. Not forgetting, the transatlantic collaboration EP with Justin Martin, ‘Hello Mr. Jello’. All this is without even mentioning his skills as a DJ, which have gained him a reputation of one of the scene’s most on-point party starters. Always one to go with the moment rather than to meticulously plan out sets, one such example was an off-the-cuff set with Claude Von Stroke in Ibiza. What started off as a casual lunchtime spin to 40 people finished nine hours later to a crowd at least ten times bigger. The owner of the club then went on to say that in ten years of living on the Island, he’d never witnessed a party flow so naturally, ranking it in his top ten Ibiza moments of all time. 2015 started off in a typically hectic fashion for the hardest working man in dance music, Dan Pearce aka Eats Everything delivered a two CD compilation ‘Fries With That’ on Hypercolour, launching the mix with a very special intimate Boiler Room party from his favourite Fish and Chip shop in Bristol earlier this year. Recently, Dan has played sets at Snowbombing, Ultra Music Festival and at Coachella as part of JESuS. With work on his own Edible imprint, a relentless touring schedule trotting around the globe and his own Edible movement, Eats Everything continues to prove himself as one of the UK’s finest dance music exports.

The Sessions - A Live Re-staging Of The Beatles At Abbey Road St

Tickets from £40.00 + bkg fee onsale now at the  Box Office 029 20 22 44 88 Following the show’s already-sold-out first performance at the Royal Albert Hall on April 1st, the production - part blockbuster stage show, part access-all-areas musical documentary - will then travel to arenas in Brighton, Cardiff, Nottingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, Aberdeen, Leeds and Birmingham, before returning to London for performances at Wembley Arena and the O2.  Set in a state-of-the-art reproduction of the iconic Abbey Road Studio 2, The Sessions will stage breath-taking, musically spectacular new live renditions of the timeless albums recorded there by The Beatles, to take us on a joyous, thrilling, historically authentic voyage through the events that shaped popular music history.  Inspired by Here, There and Everywhere, the memoir of the show’s Creative Consultant and Grammy-winning former Abbey Road sound engineer Geoff Emerick, The Sessions will be the closest an audience can get to experiencing The Beatles live and at the height of their glory.  No fewer than 45 people will take the stage to ensure that the experience is as sonically authentic to the original recordings as it is gloriously euphonic. The seven vocalists will comprise 2 ‘Johns’ 2‘Pauls’ 2 ‘Georges’ and one ‘Ringo’ in order to recreate the albums’ until-now inimitable vocal harmonies.  A further seven musicians will use rare, vintage, historically accurate instruments to recapture the Beatles’ renegade multi-instrumentalism, while a twenty-one piece orchestra will help awaken the dramatic, uplifting power of these legendary albums and songs using the exact musical arrangements of the originals, and eight Studio Technicians will help relive the ‘Eureka’ moments that created The Beatles’ era-defining sound and changed recorded music forever.  Each of the albums recorded at Abbey Road will become a ‘Suite’ all of which form part of The Sessions’ definitive Beatles Overture, driving the true story of how they made the records that shaped the next half century of popular music and culture. This multi-million pound production is set in a painstakingly accurate replica of the world-renowned Abbey Road studio, designed and made by Stufish - the entertainment architects behind emblematic set designs for live shows including The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and U2.   The arena show will place the audience around three sides of the ‘Studio’, with venue capacities limited to place the audience at eye-level with the performers and maintain the fly-on-the-wall intimacy of the piece. The concept for The Sessions was developed by Stig Edgren (creator of The Elvis Presley – In Concert Show) who also acts as Executive Producer, with Kim Gavin (Creative Director, London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony, Take That Stadium Tour, soon to do Rugby World Cup 2015 Opening Ceremony) on board as Director, and legendary promoter, agent and producer Jef Hanlon as Producer.  Stig Edgren, the Show’s Executive Producer said: “The Sessions - A live re-staging of the Beatles at Abbey Road Studios” will be a ‘musical documentary’ giving audiences an honest, respectful and accurate recreation of how musical history was made.”   Jef Hanlon, the Show’s Producer said: “An incredible amount of research has gone into the show - we wanted to be as true to the original process as possible. All instrumentation, arrangements and vocals will be performed identically to the original recordings - there will even be seven singers to recreate the multi-tracked vocals pioneered by The Beatles. This show does not seek to be a look-a-like show, but rather a sound-a-like, with the singers being the best Beatles imitators in the world. It’s a must for Beatles fans of all ages.”   Kim Gavin, the Show’s Director said: “This is an opportunity of a lifetime to work with such a legendary pop catalogue. It is really exciting to bring to life some of the Beatles most iconic recording sessions, and offer the audience a unique glimpse into the bands creative process.” TICKETS

Diary Of A Madman

Poprishchin is a low ranking civil servant for the Government, struggling to make his mark on life, but one day he makes an amazing discovery. Could he really be the next King of Spain? Driven insane by government bureaucracy and hierarchy, Gogol’s dark comedy exposes one man’s reality spiralling deeper into a surreal fantasy world. Performed by award-winning actor, Robert Bowman and directed by Olivier Award nominee Sinéad Rushe. Diary of a Madman has been a  work in progress for the last 4 years. It was originally produced at Chapter Arts Centre in September 2011 and Nick Calpaldi, Chief Executive of Arts Council Wales mentioned it as one of the highlights of 2011. We worked on the piece in 2012 at Sherman Cymru and then toured it in 2013 to venues in Wales and finishing with a run in Edinburgh at Venue 13. Robert was later awarded the Welsh Theatre Critics Best Actor in an English Language Production Award for 2014 and we toured it to Armenia in October of that year as part of their theatre festival in Yerevan. Early this year, (2015), with the help of a Wales International Grant, Robert went to North Carolina to work with Professor Denise Gabriel at the University of North Carolina Greensboro and perform for three nights at Triad Stage (Cabaret Space) “… Bowman perfectly encapsulates the madness as we watch him unravel before our eyes and head deeper into a fantasy world” - Western Mail “Robert Bowman delivers a riveting performance as Poprishchin which rarely pauses for breath “ - Broadway Baby “Smart, darkly funny and, at times, genuinely unnerving, ‘Diary of a Madman’ is brilliantly performed satire” - Edinburgh Spotlight TICKETS
