SOLD OUT // Jo Brand Born Lippy: How To Do Female

Jo Brands hilarious, forthcoming guide to life, Born Lippy: How to do Female, is packed with memorable anecdotes from her life and career, coloured by her experiences as a psychiatric nurse and working mother of two, and offers advice on everything from how to survive your family to heckling as a life-skill. Jo has written the BAFTA-winning series Getting On (set in an NHS hospital geriatric ward) and The Damned (exploring the tragic-comic lives of social workers), hosted several TV shows including the award-winning Through The Cakehole, and made legendary appearances on many others including Have I Got News For You. Her acerbic and deadpan one-liners about the female condition have formed an essential part of British comedy over the last twenty years. Come and hear Jo discuss her new book, her colourful career, and her thoughts on feminism, the #MeToo movement, mental health and the 70th anniversary of the NHS.

China Crisis - Thekla - 26.10.18

China Crisis A bit fiery for most in the new romantic camp during the early \'80s, China Crisis were inspired by similar sources but injected their pop songs with occasional political commentary and bluesy reggae rhythms. Comprising the core duo of vocalist/keyboard player Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon, the group formed in 1979 near Liverpool, England. The first China Crisis single, "African and White," didn\'t appear until 1982, but it was quickly picked up by Virgin Records and made the U.K. charts. With drummer Dave Reilly on board, their full-length debut, Difficult Shapes & Passive Rhythms, arrived later that year and also charted. Another single from the album, "Christian," hit number 12. They recorded their follow-up LP, Working with Fire and Steel: Possible Pop Songs, Vol. 2, with bassist Gazza Johnson and drummer Kevin Wilkinson. It reached number 20 in the U.K. as well as charting in Canada and across Western Europe. It also produced the Top Ten hit "Wishful Thinking." China Crisis\' third album, 1985\'s Flaunt the Imperfection, was produced by the sympathetic Walter Becker (from Steely Dan), and resulted in the Top 20 singles "Black Man Ray" and "King in a Catholic Style." The album was their first to crack the Billboard 200 in the U.S., and it hit the Top Ten in the U.K. and New Zealand. A year later, 1986\'s What Price Paradise?, which featured Brian McNeill instead of Becker on synths, reached a career-high 114 in the U.S. but landed outside of the Top 50 at home. China Crisis worked with Becker once more on 1989\'s Diary of a Hollow Horse, which earned critical raves though not much commercial movement. It proved to be their final record with Virgin. Their sixth studio LP, Warped by Success, appeared on Stardumb Records in 1994 and was followed by numerous compilations, including Virgin\'s China Crisis Collection: The Very Best of China Crisis (1997), and a long recording hiatus, though Daly and Lundon continued to tour on and off as China Crisis. In December 2013, China Crisis reappeared with the song "Everyone You Know" in conjunction with a crowdfunding campaign for their seventh album. Autumn in the Neighbourhood was eventually released in June 2015 and followed by tour dates in the U.K., the Netherlands, and North America. In 2017, Caroline released a deluxe edition of Working with Fire and Steel, which included demos and several BBC radio performances from the time of the album.

The Guests / Jemma Roper / Private World / Trophic Cascade 23.10

The Moon Cardiff & Lesson No.1 present: The Guests Jemma Roper Private World Trophic Cascade Tuesday 23rd October 2018 The Moon Cardiff 7.30pm Ages 18+ 6 entry The Guests COMMUNIST PROPAGANDA IN POP MUSIC FORM. Not our words but those of The Guests, a band from Philadelphia who play powerful, melancholy, sweet music influenced by postpunk, synthpop, goth and new wave, with a defiantly leftist lyrical outlook (they even have a song, Beast Of Bolsover, paying tribute to veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner). So far theyve released two EPs, compiled onto one LP titled Red Scare last year, and an album, 2018s superb Popular Music. The five-piece line-up also features Kyle Seely and Hart Seely from SHEER MAG, and while The Guests music is quite different it displays the same melodic class and good politics. https://theguests000.bandcamp.com/ Jemma Roper Legend of a hundred Cardiff stages, once of SAMMO HUNG and HECK and currently also in FINERY, appears here fronting a band who know their onions when it comes to sharp, death-fixated gothic postpunk. Luckily, thats what Jemma Roper has got them playing! Debut album The Thumping Heart Of Night came out last year, its a doozy, check it out here then check it out live: https://jemmaroper.bandcamp.com/album/the-thumping-heart-of-night Private World Rad Cardiff ensemble who debuted at the start of last year and have made a deserved splash with their dreamy guitar/keyboard-heavy sound. You might hear elements of shoegaze, 80s 4AD type sounds, Roxy Music-esque shimmer and psychedelia, but its all tastily elusive. By the time this gig rolls around a cassette EP will be out on Burning Rose, an Australian label. https://www.facebook.com/privateworldband/ Trophic Cascade Debut gig from an extremely new duo of Luke (currently in DEATH STENCH, ex of PERIL and THE BELLAMYS) and Jess (currently in NEUROTIC FICTION, ex of THE BELLAMYS). Music online as soon as it\'s ready but expect ultra-bleak minimal synth meets slowcore sounds. Venue & Accessibility info: http://www.themooncardiff.com/about-contact

They have featured widely on live BBC sessions, and are regulars on the festival and touring circuit, having shared bills with the likes of Laura Marling, Van Morrison, Richard Thompson, Jason Isbell, The Avett Brothers and Sturgill Simpson amongst many others. With a foundation in classic roots and Americana, Baskery is all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer-songwriting. In 2014 the three Bondesson sisters signed a world wide recording deal with Warner Bros Music, making them one of few Swedish acts to get signed directly to a US major record company. With three critically acclaimed albums, and relentless worldwide touring they have gained a reputation as one of the music scenes most noticeable live acts.
