Cassia / Deco / Beach For Tiger
Scruff of the Neck presents Cassia Combining a rich musicality with continent-spanning influences, Cassia have made their mark with their own brand of calypso-flavoured tropi-pop, resulting in a deft balance of the quintessentially British, and the unequivocally exotic. Macclesfield might not be the first place you think of when you hear the sun-soaked grooves of the three-piece, but thats exactly where the trio hail from. Despite their relatively short space of time together, the chemistry and musicality Cassia exhibit is nothing short of impressive, and as such has seen the trio already support a plethora of up and coming acts, including Lisbon and Girl Friend. Shows which have resulted in the band appearing at festivals such as The Great Escape and as well as Y-Not Festival for three years running; their first appearance going down so well theyre becoming festival favourites. Having spent the past several months turnings heads in every city they stepped foot, 2017 has seen Cassia ramp up their live presence, hitting new cities and festivals; including a debut stint in mainland Europe which will see the band take on both Horeca Festiva and Bau Sommerfest with the same sense of enthusiasm and vigour thats present in their music Its that vigour, this undeniable energy, that has led to continued support from the BBC Introducing network; the likes of Rob Adcock and Christian Carlisle championing tracks such as 100 Times Over to such an extent that the track was playlisted on Radio One. No mean feat for a band still relatively young.

Mellow Gang / Crofters Rights
Future Perfect presents Mellow Gang Crofters Rights - Bristol Thursday 19th October 18+ / 7.30pm / 5adv On sale now: http://bit.ly/MellowGangBristol **************** London four-piece Mellow Gang made a wondrous debut earlier this year with the sweet and dreamy Lagoon (Solina). Their EP, Play (released June 23rd), proves that theres more lush psychedelic pop worth your attention. From the opening noir-ish beats of My Last to the final hypnotic notes of Mirrored, every corner of Play is invigorated by the intrepid, evocative production of late 60s psychedelia. Bandmates Shen, Nick GK and Joe Wood have already received critical acclaim and support from the likes of NME and BBC Introducing for their infectious blend of psychedelic rhythm & blues, performing under previous outfit Venice Trip. Stretching into even more ambitious, beautifully turned pop music here with Mellow Gang, they deliver spellbinding instrumentation as sensuous as the best of Beach House and Tame Impala. These four heavy-hearted melodies are not to be mistaken for a romantic ode: Mellow Gangs music transmits the emotional complexity of mental health with stunning acuity. It really had to provoke something that not everyone might be comfortable with, lead vocalist Harriet Joseph tells us, In a backlash period where I shut down creatively, I not only became aware of the effects on me but recently some nearest and dearest. Fears develop of boredom, complacency, stillness, imitation, opposition, addictions and then even nothing at all. I felt it across people I knew, but no one went there or talked about it. Its an intoxicating sound led by Harriets husky tenor. She fills these slow, atmospheric songs with theatrical melancholy, casting haunting shadows across the doleful Mirrored while Vendetta the achingly beautiful new single simmers with tension and obsession. Lana Del Rey comparisons are inescapable when her cool detachment wells up into a wail of emotional anguish on My Last. She sounds tragic and beautiful throughout, luxuriating in a bleak space between dream and reality that makes Play feel both classically old and refreshingly new.

The Neville Staple Band At The Fleece, Bristol
Sat 21st Oct | 7pm | 16.50 adv | All Ages* The Neville Staple Band www.originalrudeboy.co.uk Neville Staple, also known as The Original Rudeboy, is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice. Neville Staples thirty-five year career in the music business is well documented, from the early days with The Coventry Automatics, The Specials & FunBoy3 in the late 70s and 80s, to The Special Beat and various other collaborations during his solo career from the 90s up to the present day. Following on from the 2009 Specials reunion and Nevilles departure from the band in late 2012, he continues to be a forerunner of the ska movement, and continues to thrill audiences with his own excellent band, The Neville Staple Band, at venue and festival appearances worldwide. It isn\'t hard to work out why The Specials lack energy on stage, it\'s because Neville Staple took it with him - Steve Oliver - Nottingham Post Nevilles autobiography, THE ORIGINAL RUDE BOY, was published by Aurum Press in the UK in May 2009. It is an amazing story that tells of Nevilles interest in music in the early 60s, his relationship with Pete Waterman (record producer, songwriter, radio and club DJ and television presenter) who he met at a club in Coventry and his rise out of hell into stardom. Nevilles latest album with his band Ska Crazy was released in May 2014, ahead of an extensive tour, which includes new material and some old ska classic covers. The album also features guest vocals from his wife Christine Staple and long time friend, DJ and Artist, Daddy Woody. 2015 was a very exciting year for Neville with relentless touring up and down the UK and playing many festivals including a headline slot on the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury Festival. Neville has a way with people, he cares about his audience and wants to give them a good time. In return, the crowd are word perfect on every song and each event turns into a party. Nothing came close to the sensational Neville Staple Band who really got the party started and had the masses dancing along - Anita Merritt - Exeter Express & Echo Neville has also worked on various collaborations over the years, including with The Talks, Flipron, Duplex, co-writing 4 tracks on The Mutants album Rhythm and Punk Review, tracks with The Dub Pistols and there are many more collaborations in the works.

Wesley Gonzalez - Cardiff
I wanted to see if I could take those traditional guitar elements in pop music out and still make a big sounding record Wesley Gonzalez made a name for himself at an early age as the enigmatically petulant frontman and founder of guitar-shredding pop-punk band Lets Wrestle. In 2015, after ten years together, the group disbanded and Gonzalez set his sights on an entirely different approach to songwriting: as my first album away from Lets Wrestle, I wanted to completely indulge myself with the experimentation that I had previously kept to my bedroom demos. Without letting go of his fascination with Beatlesesque melodies, Gonzalez taught himself to play piano and began writing songs which hark back to mid 70s singer-songwriters such as Todd Rundgren and Emmitt Rhodes but with added elements of soul and funk drawing upon influences like Sly And The Family Stone and Donny Hathaway. After spending one summer revisiting early electronic music, Gonzalez invested in some synths and wrote his debut record. Although Gonzalez made a conscious retreat from punk music, he maintains his work is still defined as angry music; anger is still an energy. All the lyrics are rooted in my disgust with a lot of the modern world, and feeling powerless as a young person in our society.

Parallel Lines Presents Diet Cig
Happy to have Diet Cig back in London to play at MOTH CLUB on the 25th October! Diet Cig are here to have fun. Theyre here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice cream on your birthday. Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman\'s previous band for a lighter. The New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 Over Easy EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back. Watch their latest video for \'Maid Of The Mist\' here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5or7cLuz_PE
