The Style Councillors - Caf Bleu Tour

AGMP Concerts presents The Style Councillors "CAF BLEU" TOUR 2020 The Style Councillors celebrate "Caf Bleu", the seminal debut album by The Style Council. The Style Councillors are the world\'s one and only tribute to The Style Council. Formed in 2013 by Darren Fletcher (Paul Weller) and Steve Hayes (Mick Talbot), The Style Councillors have quickly built a loyal fanbase for the group which was Paul Weller\'s home for the majority of the 1980\'s and where he wrote some of his finest songs. Dani Clay (Dee C. Lee) and Craig Read (Steve White) are joined by the Bad Manners Horn Section and a stellar line up of musicians hell-bent on recreating the sound of The Style Council. After the dissolution of The Jam in 1982, Paul Weller joined forces with Mick Talbot, formerly of The Merton Parkas, Dextys Midnight Runners and The Bureau, to form The Style Council. After a string of succesful singles released in 1983 such as \'Speak Like a Child\', \'Money-Go-Round\' & \'Long Hot Summer\', The Style Council released their debut album \'Caf Bleu\' to universal acclaim in March 1984. \'Caf Bleu\' featured favourites such as \'My Ever Changing Moods\', \'You\'re The Best Thing\', \'Headstart for Happiness\' and more. The Style Councillors will be reprising the album in full along with a set of other classics by The Style Council.

In reality, people have long been controlled by a sinister virtual power the Matrix, whose agents already have their sights on Neo. The show will feature the iconic Don Davis score which uses complex and unrelenting sounds to portray the non-reality of the Matrix.

The Stray Cat Lee Rocker is ready to Rock This Town! Direct from the USA, for a 5-night tour of the UK, its the Grammy Award Nominated, Rockabilly AND Bass Player Hall of Fame Inductee; Lee Rocker of The Stray Cats! As the talented double bass thumping, spinning and climbing acrobat next to Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom in The Stray Cats, Lee Rocker helped put Rockabilly back in the charts in the 1980s. With worldwide mega hits, like Stray Cat Strut, Sexy and Seventeen and Rock this Town the group sold over 10 million records and remain the most renowned Neo-Rockabilly group of all time. After gathering over 23 Gold and Platinum records, appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, headlining countless international festivals and appearing on TV shows like Saturday Night Live and MTV during the channels hey-day, Lee Rocker went on to establish a solid solo career. As a solo artist Lee toured and recorded with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, John Fogerty and The Rolling Stones, to name but a few. Now UK Rockabilly fans can experience the legendary Stray Cats bass player live in concerts across five venues in November 2020. Get your tickets soon, because Lee Rockers army of loyal fans will be ripping away spots as soon as theyre released! TOUR DATES WED 4 Nov 2020: Glasgow - Barrowland Ballroom THU 5 Nov 2020: Newcastle - Northumbria Institute FRI 6 Nov 2020: Manchester - Manchester Academy SAT 7 Nov 2020: Bristol - The Anson Rooms SUN 8 Nov 2020: London - The Garage Lee Rocker & His All-Star Band Legendary Stray Cats co-founder and pioneer of the original Rockabilly revival, Lee Rocker is joined on stage by a band matching both Lees musicianship and showmanship on their respective instruments led by American guitar slinger and vocalist, Buzz Campbell. A renowned songwriter in his own right, Buzz is a name that should ring a bell for all fans of Rockabilly and RocknRoll. In addition to writing his own material, Campbell has toured and recorded with names like Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson, Bo Diddley, Chris Isaak, and all three original members of The Stray Cats. So Campbell is right at home playing the guitar next to Lee Rocker! Support: The DeadShots To get the audience fired up for the main act, we have booked Britains own, The DeadShots, as support for all 5 tour dates. This four-piece from North Worcestershire have been lighting up stages and audiences across the UK for several years now. The DeadShots showcase exceptional original compositions and honest performances of the most unexpected cover tunes you are likely to hear. If Lee Rocker helped put Rockabilly back on the map in the 80s, then these guys are doing the same for Rockabilly and RocknRoll in the 21st century. In other words, this quartet never get boring! A Rockabilly act worthy of sharing the stage with Lee Rocker, The DeadShots feature the wild shenanigans of Jack Smith, Billy Jenkins, Matt Waterhouse and Jim Jenkins. Smith runs on pure octane to keep audiences entertained. He delivers backup vocals, crazy dance moves and tight drum rhythms all at once that perfectly complement the calm and collected style of songwriter Billy Jenkins. Jenkins oozes cool while letting his fingers do the talking - ripping out blistering licks on the lead guitar without breaking a sweat. Joined on stage by vocal powerhouse, Matt Waterhouse on lead vocals, and the bearded beast, Jim Jenkins, slapping like a madman on the double bass. The DeadShots are bound to rock your socks off and get you ready for the big event! If youre not familiar with The DeadShots, do yourself a favour and have a listen to their latest album, Wanted, released in early 2019. From the first week of its release this potent mix of Rockabilly and RocknRoll got attention and airtime across multiple international radio stations and youll immediately hear why! Tickets for the 2020 tour are available from Eventbrite, Skiddle and Ticketweb.

Ocean Colour Scene

The Birmingham bands story is already the stuff of legend: a rip-roaring rocknfolk odyssey set to a backdrop of over 20 years of UK pop culture at its very best. Boasting three top 5 albums, Ocean Colour Scene\'s rise to Britpop royalty began following the release of their 1996 anthem \'The Riverboat Song\' which saw them gain support from fellow British rock heavyweight Noel Gallagher and a subsequent support slot on Oasis\' legendary Knebworth concert. The band went on to achieve a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles and later went on to helm the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date. For their one-off London show, you can expect to hear Ocean Colour Scene\'s greatest hits.

JO WHILEY'S 90S ANTHEMS

HEY GIRL, HEY BOY, SUPERSTAR DJ... HERE WE GO! Bringing you all the best tracks from the greatest decade for music. Think Blur vs Oasis, Fatboy Slim, Primal Scream, The Verve, The Chemical Brothers, Faithless, The Prodigy and a whole lot more. Arguably one of the most recognisable voices in British Broadcasting, Jo Whiley has had an exciting and varied career and is considered one of the nation’s favourite radio DJs. Jo was born in Northampton. After studying in Brighton and dabbling on BBC Radio Sussex’s new music show, her first broadcasting job was as a presenter for WPFM, Radio 4’s youth culture and music show. She then moved over into TV, initially on satellite, then to Channel 4 as band booker for ‘The Word’, giving Britain its first television taste of bands such as Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine. Jo joined Radio 1 in the Spring of 1993 and in September she became permanent co-presenter of The Evening Session with Steve Lamacq. Four years later she landed her own daytime show, and remained part of Radio 1’s weekday line-up until 2009, when she began a new weekend programme. TICKETS: http://bit.ly/CoastalEventsUK

The first thing youll notice about Bob Log III is his crash helmet, teamed with a black visor and a telephone wired in it for a mic. His identity and history has long been shrouded in mystery and rumour but his unmissable and unforgettable performances are wild affairs. As if simultaneously playing steel guitar, kick drum and hi-hat wasnt enough, Bob also likes to ride rubber dinghies across the heads of his audience. Tom Waits says its just the loudest strangest stuff youve ever heard, while the Austin Chronicle has hailed the Arizona natives punk-blues as one of the most entertaining one-man-band acts ever conceived. 14+ (Under 18s to be accompanied by an adult) Exchange Fri 5 Mar 2021 Doors: 19:30 Start: 20:00 13.62 incl. booking fee

Rescheduled - Boston Manor At SWX, Bristol

Crosstown Concerts presents: Boston Manor at SWX Bristol BOSTON MANOR - GLUE Boston Manors third full-length GLUE is the sound of a band questioning the state of the world around them. Inevitably, in a critical examination of the modern world, it comes from a dark place, but one that fuelled the five-piece to create a body of work that elevates their craft further than ever before. Its 13 highly charged songs came out of a process that singer Henry Cox describes as very chaotic, but the result is a truly ferocious album - one that both draws and moves on from what theyve done in the past, incorporating the gloomy atmospherics of 2018s Welcome To The Neighbourhood with the highly charged yet melodic punk of 2016s debut Be Nothing. Yet while GLUE consolidates the different musical avenues Boston Manor have explored since forming in 2013, its very much an album that represents who they are and reflects the state of the world right now in 2020. That, Cox admits, isnt particularly pretty. It\'s a lot more abrasive and a weirder record, says Cox. My parents dont like it as much as the last one, but I don\'t think theyre really our demographic, so I\'m not too worried about that. It\'s just new territory for us. The whole point was to throw away any preconceived notions of what the band is and push ourselves out of our comfort zone. Like Welcome To The Neighbourhood, GLUE was recorded at The Barber Shop studios in New Jersey, but with a very different approach to that record. Produced by Mike Sapone and engineered by Brett Romnes, Cox admits that these are not just the most primal and plain-speaking songs the band completed by guitarists Mike Cunniff and Ash Wilson, bassist Dan Cunniff and drummer Jordan Pugh have ever recorded, but everything the previous seven years have been leading up to. This is the start of our band finally becoming the band that we want to be, he says. It\'s taken us so long to get here, but I\'m really proud of us for becoming our own thing. Not once did we think about what people wanted to hear we just went entirely down the rabbit hole with it. Our only rule was to do what we wanted to do. Even when thinking about playing the songs live, we just decided to figure that out later and move forward with what we wanted to make at that point in time in the studio. And I\'m really happy that we did that. The result is a slew of finely-tuned songs that robustly and dramatically weave their way through the frustrations and angst the band were encountering at the time of writing the record. By deciding to write exactly what they wanted to write, Boston Manor were able to challenge themselves artistically and creatively more than they ever had before. Bursting with highly-charged emotion, GLUE doesnt just address and tackle the issues and emotions that have been weighing heavy on and in Coxs mind, but successfully channelled the roadblocks they faced into some of the most raw, visceral and blunt songs theyve made to date. Theres the rush and roar, jolt and fire of 1s & 0s, a raucous breakneck post-Brexit blast of punk rock vitriol that confronts the increasing divide between the countrys younger and older generations and which Cox refers to as the rallying cry of the whole record. Everything Is Ordinary which is about the way weve become increasingly desensitized to awful events and You, Me & The Class War are equally full of pointed ire and rage, while the glowering menace of Only1 and the resolutely dark energy of final track Monolith capture the bands frustration and anger at the world around them. But there are more tender moments here, too the almost soulful Plasticine Dreams, the plaintive, fragility of both Stuck In The Mud and the ominous and sinister On A High Ledge. Both address the culture of toxic masculinity and the prevalence of man up culture, which Cox experienced when he was growing up and is still rampant today. And theres shimmering self-examination of Terrible Love which sees the singer confront one of his greatest enemies himself. That song is all about me, he admits. I\'ve never written or talked to myself like that before, but last year I was just in a really, really bad place mentally. I\'m still coming out the other side, but I\'m really trying to take care of my mental health a lot more in 2020. I\'ve never really categorically listed what I didn\'t like about myself, and it was very cathartic to do so in this song. As cathartic as these songs were for Cox to write, hes keen to point out that theres much less of himself and his own personal issues and insecurities in GLUE. Rather, hes turned his attention onto those things which are most important to him, the things which have been keeping him up at night and were partly responsible for dragging him down to such low levels of mental health. It\'s about the state of our fucking world right now, he says. Its interesting that the album is going to come out at the very start of a new decade, because a lot of it is about the challenges we\'ll face in this decade. First and foremost that\'s climate change. Then theres austerity and the tyranny of big government and big corporations. And its also about addiction and mental health, which includes our need for physical validation because we all just seem to live these fake lives online. All of that culminates in a bold, outspoken and uncompromising record, one which Cox hopes will be a call to arms for everybody who listens to it to make them realise they need to take notice of whats happening both around them and on a larger, more global scale. I want people to listen to it and feel something and think about things, he says. The aim of the whole record is to make people angry. It\'s to make them go Well, this pisses me off, how can I change it? What is one thing that I can personally do that I can start doing today to make a difference? Because we can do better than this. We just need to start.

Kvelertak Plus Planet Of Zeus And Blood Command At SWX, Bristol

We are super pleased to be able to announce the rescheduled date for Kvelertak plus Planet of Zeus and Blood Command. ALL ORIGINAL TICKETS FROM THE MARCH 2020 DATE REMAIN VALID. Remaining tickets are now back on-sale. Four-time Grammy winning Norwegian rock and metal outfit Kvelertak entered 2019 with bigger riffs and an even heavier sound. Previously last seen as the sole support to Metallica on their enormous 2017 European tour, the band returned to kick off 2019 as main support to Mastodon on their European tour, before heading out on their European festival run, incl. Download, Hellfest, Graspop, Rock AM Ring, Rock IM Park, Copenhell, Resurrection, Waken and more. Now they gear up to headline SWX Bristol in support of their excellent all new album, \'Splid\' (Rise Records). Released in February 2020, the Kurt Ballou (Converge) produced album is a stunning collection of melodic and blackened punk, rock and metal, garnering acclaim from across the music press (see below for reviews). The band conquers every venue they play with their blend of classic 70s rock n roll and Norwegian black metal. Kvelertaks live performances can be summarized as grand, sweaty and goddamn catchy, as witnessed on the aforementioned tours and alongside the likes of Slayer, Ghost, Converge and more. Greek rock titans Planet of Zeus are no strangers to our city after playing alongside Clutch, before two of their own storming headline shows in 2016 & 18. The band have also toured extensively alongside the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Truckfighters, Red Fang, Monster Magnet and Brant Bjork amongst others, and at UK festivals incl. Bloodstock and Desertfest. Their signature riffs take listeners on a journey throughout the history of heavy music; from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Mastodon, and Queens of the Stone Age to AC/DC. Opening the show are Norwegian punk outfit Blood Command. Since the release of their debut album, their catchy hybrid of punk has garnered acclaim and seen them share stages with the likes of Protest The Hero, Leprous, Skindred and Rolo Tomassi and perform at festivals including Download and 2000 Trees. All the riffs, metal, punk and good times on one bill, not to be missed. Be ready to let loose and throw down with us this spring. We cant wait. --------------------------------------------- SPLID Reviews: "the perfect rocknroll record from a genuinely unique band" - KKKK, Kerrang! \'Album of the Week\' - Stereogum \'a thrilling return\' - - Planet Rock - MetalSucks.net \'a whole lot of damn fun... accessible enough even for casual rock fans, but also extreme enough for diehard metalheads\' - Metal Injection "Every time you spin this record itll probably gift you a new favourite song" - 9 / 10 Distorted Sound Magazine "Splid consistently churns out raging banger after banger, allowing for the record to roar with metal bliss" - Consequence of Sound "they have captured something elemental about their sound." - - Stereoboard TICKETS: 17.50 adv | Ages 14+ (u16s with an adult) www.seetickets.com/event/kvelertak/swx-bristol/1398040 www.effigypresents.co.uk

A Mercury Prize winning, MOBO Award winning, Music Producers Guild Award winning pioneer of Drum & Bass, head honcho at Full Cycle Records and all round global superstar.. the legendary RONI SIZE.   With heavyweight support from the likes of Emcee Recordings' latest signing BLADE with previous releases on such seminal labels as Goodlooking, Liquid V and Innerground, alongside X-AMNT and Ghetto Dub's jungle don KICKBACK, Inferno founders and residents SK2 & MAESTRO and XYZ Events very own SKANKY GENERAL, all fully complimented on the mic by head of AFT Records and arguably one of the best MC's in the country CARASEL alongside rising wordsmith talent in the forms of MC's BLUEJAY, BOXY and RYDER.   _____________________________________   Full line-up:   RONI SIZE (90 minute set) (Reprazent, Full Cycle Records, V Recordings)   BLADE (Liquid V, Innerground, Good Looking Records, ONE7SIX)   KICKBACK (X-AMNT, Ghetto Dub, CLSM, Warped Science)   SK2 & MAESTRO (Inferno, GBH)   SKANKY GENERAL (XYZ Events)     Hosted by:   CARASEL (AFT Records, Hospital, Formation)   BLUEJAY (Intrigue Music, Prog:Ram, Soul Deep)   BOXY (XYZ Events)   RYDER (Dub Union, Inferno, Uncharted)   Tickets available now from Eventbrite and the capacity is limited so don't leave it too late to bag yours.   BUY TICKETS HERE: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/inferno-dnb-presents-roni-size-tickets-85855308539   Strictly Over 18's (ID will be required)   * Disclaimer* The use of laser and strobe lighting will be prevalent in the venue.   _____________________________________   Inferno Events was established in 2006 and over the years we have hosted many events around the South-West, being the first to bring the likes of Danny Byrd, Sigma and Metrik to Taunton with our residency at The Perfect 5th back in the late noughties and more recently running the D&B stages at Sat In A Field Festival.   We're back with a new venue and a new concept for 2021, bringing legendary pioneering headline DJ's to the South-West while showcasing an incredible array of rising talent alongside. Together with a fully immersive production including top spec lighting and lasers, video screens, fully decorated environment and a massively heavy Funktion One soundsystem, we are ready to set a new standard for events in this area.   Our music policy:   We're not your average Drum & Bass organisation. While many D&B events focus mainly on stacked lineups of DJ's with double the amount of MC's, we like to take a more old skool approach to our lineups. Quality over quantity is definitely key to an Inferno event. We love the full spectrum of styles our great scene has developed and embrace them all in our events, catering for every sub-genre out there under one banner, Drum & Bass.   Our MC policy:   Not knocking any other events, we just recognise there are a lot of Drum & Bass fans out there that don't appreciate 200 word bars being spat every minute but prefer to hear the music with a light smattering of rhymes and crowd hyping complimenting the vibe. So that is why you will only ever find a few carefully chosen MC's on our lineups, hand picked for the style that they bring.   Attitude policy:   We will not accept any forms of bad attitude, aggression, drug use or violence at any of our events, anyone found to be going against this policy will be asked to leave the premises. We have a very fair and professional security team at the venue who will do their utmost to make sure that everyone feels safe in an attitude-free environment   As we used to say back in the day: Nice And Safe Attitude - No Mugs, Drugs or Thugs!   If you are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other social media platform, please share the event and follow our pages for updates: FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE - https://www.facebook.com/events/782683602180488/ FACEBOOK INFERNO PROFILE - https://www.facebook.com/infernoevents FACEBOOK INFERNO GROUP - https://www.facebook.com/groups/infernoevents/ INSTAGRAM INFERNO PROFILE - https://www.instagram.com/infernoevents_uk/ TWITTER INFERNO PROFILE - https://twitter.com/infernoevents INFERNO WEBSITE - http://www.inferno-events.co.uk BUY TICKETS - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/inferno-dnb-presents-roni-size-tickets-85855308539

Stacey Kent

With over 2 million albums sold, a Grammy nomination and international recognition as the most successful and prolific jazz vocalist of her time, Stacey Kent is an artist in the mould of the greatest.  Alongside a legion of fans worldwide, a host of honours and awards, Gold, Double-Gold and Platinum-selling albums that have reached a series of No. 1 chart positions during the span of her career. As part of her worldwide tour, Stacey returns to the UK with her 5-piece band for a very select number of 2020 dates.  Stacey’s visit to The Old Market in Brighton will see her performing music from her latest release and most ambitious album to date, ‘I Know I Dream’ (Sony Music / Okeh) alongside a collection of numbers from her previous albums, including the Grammy nominated ‘Breakfast on the Morning Tram’. This bewitching collection of songs, includes American Standards, Bossa Nova classics, Chansons, as well as original songs and reprises of some of Stacey's most loved repertoire - including numbers co-written by Nobel prizewinner Kazuo Ishiguro, whose songwriting partnership with Stacey has formed an essential plank of her repertoire. For Stacey, whose international touring schedule keeps her on the road for most of the year, her return to Brighton provides a rare opportunity for UK fans see her live in concert. "She has charm to burn, a smile that could give you hope in February and sings like nobody's business” The Wall Street Journal “Devastatingly Stylish” The Observer "Stacey Kent has been quietly sitting on top of the world of jazz vocals, for many years” Jamie Cullum

Rent

Come and join BMCC as we present our version of RENT. RENT is the rock musical phenomenon that defined a generation and paved the way for all contemporary musicals that followed it. Rent has music, lyrics and book by Jonathan Larson. Loosely based on Giacomo Puccini\'s opera "La Boheme", it tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive the 90s and create a life in Lower Manhattan\'s East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. RENT was an overnight sensation on Broadway ultimately winning four Tony Awards, six Drama Desk Awards and the hugely prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It ran on Broadway for an astonishing 12 years though its opening night was tainted with sadness as composer Jonathan Larson died suddenly the night before its premier. His amazing legacy lives on in the music and the lives of Roger, Mark, Mimi, Joanne, Maureen, Angel, Collins and Benny and unforgettable songs like SEASONS OF LOVE, ONE SONG GLORY, RENT, LIGHT MY CANDLE, I\'LL COVER YOU, ANOTHER DAY and many others. If RENT teaches us anything it teaches us there is NO DAY BUT TODAY. This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe). All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe - www.mtishows.co.uk

Bananagun

No Need To Shout & Wax Music Proudly Present: BANANAGUN + Support Saturday 8th May 2021 Rough Trade Bristol 10 ADV Tickets available via Headfirst Bristol: http://hdfst.uk/E62430 3 New Bridewell, Nelson St, Bristol BS1 2QD ~~ Hailing from Melbourne, but with a sound stretching from 60s and 70s afrobeat and exotica to Fela Kuti-esque repetition, the proto-garage rhythmic fury of The Monks and the grooves of Os Mutantes, theres an enticing lost world exoticism to the music of Bananagun. Its the sort of stuff that couldve come from a dusty record crate of hidden gems; yet as the punchy, colourfully vibrant pair of singles Do Yeah and Out of Reach have proven over the past 12 months, the band are no revivalists. On debut album The True Story of Bananagun, they make a giant leap forward with their outward-looking blend of global tropicalia. The True Story of Bananagun marks Bananaguns first full foray into writing and recording as a complete band, having originally germinated in the bedroom ideas and demos of guitarist, vocalist and flautist Nick van Bakel. The multi-instrumentalist grew up on skate videos, absorbing the hip-hop beats that soundtracked them - taking on touchstones like Self Core label founder Mr. Dibbs and other early 90s turntablists. That love of the groove underpins Bananagun - even if the rhythms now traverse far beyond those fledgling influences. "We didn\'t want to do what everyone else was doing, the bands founder says. We wanted it to be vibrant, colourful and have depth like the jungle. Like an ode to nature." Van Bakel was joined first by cousin Jimi Gregg on drums the pairs shared love of the Jungle Book apparently made him a natural fit and the rest of the group are friends first and foremost, put together as a band because of a shared emphasis on keeping things fun. Jack Crook (guitar/vocals), Charlotte Tobin (djembe/percussion) and Josh Dans (bass) complete the five-piece and between them theres a freshness and playful spontaneity to The True Story of Bananagun, borne out of late night practice jams and hangs at producer John Lees Phaedra Studios. We were playing a lot leading up to recording so were all over it live, van Bakel fondly recalls of the sessions that became more like a communal hang out, with Zoe Fox and Miles Bedford there too to add extra vocals and saxophone. It was a good time, meeting there every night, using proper gear [rather than my bedroom setups.] It felt like everyone had a bit of a buzz going on. Tracks like The Master and People Talk Too Much bounce around atop hybrid percussion that fuses West African high life with Brazilian tropicalia; the likes of She Now hark to a more westernised early rhythm n blues beat, remoulded and refreshed in the groups own inimitable summery style. Freak Machine is perhaps the closest to those early 90s beats, but even then the group add layers and layers of bright guitars, harmonic flower-pop vocals and other sounds to transmute the source material to an entirely new plain. Elsewhere theres a 90 second track called Bird Up! that cut and pastes kookaburra and parrot calls as an homage to the wildlife surrounding van Bakels home 80 kilometres from Melbourne. Oh, and there are hooks galore too try and stop yourself from humming along to Out of Reachs swooping vocal melody. Bananagun are first and foremost a band enthused with the joy of living and The True Story of Bananagun is a ebullient listen; van Bakel - as the main songwriter - is keen not to let any lyrical themes overpower that. Theres more to this record than blissed out grooves and tripped out fuzz though: The Master is about learning to be your own master and resisting the urge to compare yourself to others; She Now addresses gender identity and extolls the importance of people being able to identify how they feel. Then theres closing track Taking The Present For Granted, which perhaps sums up the bands ethos on life, trying to take in the world around you and appreciating the here and now. A keen meditator, van Bakel says of the track: so often people are having a shit time stuck in their own existential crisis, but if you get outside you head and participate in life and appreciate how beautiful it all is you can have a better time. Even the bands seemingly innocuous name has an underlying message of connectivity that matches the universality of the music. Its like non-violent combat! Or the guy who does a stick up, but its just a banana, not a gun, and he tells the authorities not to take themselves too seriously. The True Story of Bananagun then is perhaps a tale of finding beauty in even these most turbulent of times. ~~

WP: Green Lung Juniper Grave Neuromatic (Rescheduled!)

Rescheduled for 2021! Wizzarding Promotions presents an evening of folk magick inspired riffs at Exchange, featuring: -------------------------------------------------------------- GREEN LUNG [London, UK] https://greenlung.bandcamp.com/ New record out now on Svart Records! FFO: megaliths, dryads, wiccan riffs One of the leading lights in the UK\'s heavy underground scene, Green Lungs sound harks back to the golden days of psychedelic rock and proto-metal, injecting those classic sounds with occult venom and punk energy. They released the critically acclaimed debut album Woodland Rites in March 2019, and have toured and shared stages with the likes of Conan, Conjurer, Primitive Man and Puppy. \'This is heavy metal how it should be done\' The Guardian Killer, sample-strewn psych-doom\' Daniel P. Carter, Kerrang! \'Surges with all the druggy riffs and spooky psychedelia you could ever want\' Metal Hammer \'A fantastic mix of stoner rock, hard rock and psychedelic rock laden with harmonies\' Metal Injection -------------------------------------------------------------- Juniper Grave [Edinburgh, Scotland] https://junipergrave.bandcamp.com/ From the dreich, winding closes of Edinburgh come Juniper Grave. Riding out under the banner of debut album Of Hellions and Harridans, these four harbingers of doom have distilled the influence of classic rock deities, folktales of ancient horrors and the wailing laments of the sirens into a heady fog of blues-drenched doom-rock. Recounter of sagas, Jenni, wields her smoke-and-honey voice like a weapon, by turns weaving tales of forgotten lore and declaiming dread incantations, while she and her bandmates open a portal to the 70s with shimmering organs, enchanting backing vocals and syrupy, resinous riffs. After honing their craft performing live in support of Green Lung, Witchsorrow, Slough Feg, Dystopian Future Movies & Church Of The Cosmic Skull they are hell bent on spreading their fables of accursed souls and formidable women throughout the land. Dare you flirt with powers beyond your ken? Step out of the shadows, child, and allow Juniper Grave to impart to you the tale of your undoing. Of Hellions & Harridans is out now on Wasted State Records on vinyl, CD and digital. Fresh from a successful eight date UK tour in May 2019 with French, ambient doom darlings; Deathbell, Juniper Grave are halfway through composing their next album, determined to take the band to new heights. Juniper Grave are: Lead Vocals and Organ Jenni Guitar and Backing Vocals Shonagh Bass and Backing Vocals Sarah Drums Jason -------------------------------------------------------------- Neuromatic [Bristol, UK] Blending noisy metal guitar, rhythms of the Himalayas and, lilting dreamy vocals. Neuromatic are a psychedelic 5 piece based in Bristol. Think Kate Bush meets the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Neuromatics debut album 55 was recorded live over a single weekend in June 2019 and was released on 15th August 2019. Currently available from iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, CD Baby as well as from our official Big Cartel site: https://neuromatic.bigcartel.com/product/55 -------------------------------------------------------------- Tickets will be available from Headfirst Bristol: Advance: 8 http://hdfst.uk/wizzarding On the door: 10 -------------------------------------------------------------- Contact: ogre@wizzarding.com --------------------------------------------------------------

THE BLUES BAND: 40 Years & Back For More

2020 sees The Blues Band Celebrate their 40th year together Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher. Formed in 1979 by five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, The Blues Band are celebrating 40 glorious years as Britain and Europe’s leading exponents of one of the greatest musical traditions of all time.  It began back then with Paul Jones, actor, singer, musician and radio presenter, no stranger to the pop charts throughout the 1960s as front man for the hugely successful Manfred Mann. Fellow Manfred member, Tom McGuinness, shared the same love of the blues - he’d started out with Eric Clapton in The Roosters. They brought in legendary slide guitar maestro and singer Dave Kelly, who brought along a talented fellow musician, bassist Gary Fletcher. With the addition of Tom’s chart-topping partner from McGuinness Flint, drummer Hughie Flint, (ex John Mayall’s Blues Breakers), that first line-up stormed the post-punk music scene, and contrary to their expectations, they soon had an international career playing the music they loved.  After two and a half years, Flint left due to the pressures of touring. His place was admirably filled by another fine drummer, Rob Townsend, a member of one of Britain’s most eclectic, legendary outfits, Family. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. But what history. TV, films, a stadium tour with Dire Straits, over 20 albums and thousands of shows later, they’ve earned a worldwide reputation as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms.  With this all-star line-up, it’s hardly surprising.  What’s on offer is always the same; a stunning menu of original compositions and blues classics, all delivered with passion, knowledge, love of the genre and entertaining showmanship. Other blues groups come and go, but it takes something special to achieve the iconic prestige they've earned. If you want to know what 40 years of skill and devotion sound like, here’s your chance - if you love the blues, it doesn’t get any better than The Blues Band

Eddi Reader: 40 Years Live Tour

Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland's greatest living female voice. In 2020, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with the ‘40 Years Live’ concert tour. From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of western Scotland and learning how to street sing across Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf) Eddi's path soon lead her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her own band, Fairground Attraction, went onto have huge international success and number one hits with ‘Perfect’ and debut album ‘First of a Million Kisses’ which stormed the charts in the late 1980's. Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as 'The Songs of Robert Burns' and last years 'Cavalier'. She has won Brit Awards, been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the worlds greatest concert and festival stages and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including Folk, Jazz, Pop, World, Punk and even Classical work with various orchestras. In 2019, Eddi was invited to be a special guest with Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive tour, she released her ‘Starlight’ EP, played sold out headline shows, recorded a programme for BBC Radios' Classic Scottish Album series about her Robert Burns recordings and appeared on BBC Television's Songs of Praise and as part of Billy Connolly's ‘Made In Scotland’ series. 2020's ‘40 Years Live’ concerts promise to be something special, as with any Eddi Reader concert, the magic is being made in the moment, no two concerts ever the same.
