Viagra Boys + Special Guests | Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

Viagra Boys are a post punk band from Stockholm, Sweden. Formed in 2015, the 6 man band started exploring their very own lane in what would become to be called ugly gonzo post punk genre. With a wide range of influences such as Screaming Jay Hawkins, Butthole Surfers, Suicide, Dead Kennedys theyve created a melting pot that we know as Viagra Boys. The name Viagra Boys may make you think of failing sexual abilities, and thats kind of what its about. The name was chosen as a pun to mans failed role in society. 2018 saw the band release their first studio album Street Worms, a twisted dark punk album that is grimey and acid highway full throttle. Its been critically praised around the world, with Pitchfork naming the lead single Sports the Best new track, regular spins off BBC Radio 1s Annie Mac and Noisey calling them The Band that might genuinely get you back into post punk! If you\'re a fan of IDLES, Shame, Slaves, Sleaford Mods, HMLTD we highly recommend you check the Swedish punk mob. Don\'t know where to start? We recommend listening and watching the frankly brilliant video to Sports on YouTube or their debut album Street Worms on streaming platforms or your preferred physical streaming platform.

Tom Baxter

One of the most distinguished song craftsmen of the 21st century makes his long-awaited return with The other side of blue, his first official release in a decade. It was in 2008 that Tom brought out the self-funded Skybound, the follow-up to the 2004 debut Feather & Stone, which first alerted the wider world to his singular talent for believable, emotionally immersive composition. since then, hes released one fan-only album, traveled the world, been through plenty of soul-searching and emerged at the other end with what may well be his best-ever work. Baxter made his name with such heart-stopping originals as Better, Almost there and Day in Verona, and his songs have been covered by much-loved entertainers from Dame Shirley Bassey to Boyzone. hes admired by the likes of Tom Waits, Rufus Wainwright, Gary Barlow and actor David Schwimmer, and by a steadfast set of fans whove been waiting for word of his next adventure. The other side of blue is Baxters most searingly personal work to date, performed entirely solo and with gorgeous illustration on guitar and piano. its a beautiful and elegant return to his very core as a songwriter and a human being.

GONG At The Globe | Cardiff

Australian beatnik poet Daevid Allen (ex-Soft Machine) began making music with his partner Gilli Smyth in the late 1960s, along with a constantly evolving community of creative musicians. Albums from this period include Magick Brother, Mystic Sister (1969) and the influential Bananamoon (1971) one of David Bowies favourite 20 albums. A stable line-up of the band, now named Gong, eventually materialised featuring Didier Malherbe (sax and reeds), Christian Tritsch (bass), and Pip Pyle (drums), along with Allen (glissando guitar, vocals) and Smyth (space whisper, vocals). This band released the album Camembert Electrique in late 1971, as well as providing the soundtrack to the iconic biker film Continental Circus and music for the album Obsolete by French poet Dashiel Hedayat. Gongs next three albums, released on Virgin Records, became known as the known as the Radio Gnome Trilogy, consisting of Flying Teapot (1973), Angels Egg (1974), and You (1975). Over the course of the Trilogy, Tritsch and Pyle left and were replaced by Mike Howlett (bass) and Pierre Moerlen (drums). New members Steve Hillage (guitar) and Tim Blake (synthesizers) also joined.
