Zig Zags + Chew Magna Live At Soup Kitchen

Soup Kitchen are pleased to present Zig Zags + Chew Magna "8 years, 7 singles, 3 albums, 3 bass players, 2 drummers and God knows how many shows later Zig Zags has continually evolved, mutated, transitioned and transformed, rising again and again, like a phoenix emerging from the flame. The addition of the newest member of our triumvirate multi-instrumentalist, designated bassist (and longtime Zig Zag's sound engineer) Sean Hoffman recalls those golden moments past, when destiny stepped inlike when Neil Peart joined Rush or Bob Rock teamed up with Metallica. In short the circle is now complete, the cornerstone has been set and the winged serpent rises once again. Some say its luck, but really, its about patience. A band is like a relationship. You have to know when to push, and when to hold back. You gotta listen and you gotta learn. We look to the masters. Like Henry and Glenn, weve gone from drinking hooch to pumpin iron. We quit smoking. Two of us are married, for chrissakes! After 2017s brutal European tour, which left us coughing blood and taking names, we sought out Lemmys Doctor (Feel Good), who diagnosed us with,Rocknroll Pneumonia. Like Lemmy, we were pushing too hard. And if you push too hard youll end up in an apartment above The Rainbow Room, playing video poker on Christmas Eve (which is also your birthday)but thats another story."

Jacco Gardener's Somnium At Soup Kitchen 23rd May

The Beauty Witch presents a very special show at Soup Kitchen with Jacco Gardner performing his incredible new album Somnium in full. Jacco will be playing in the middle of the venue through a 4 point quadrophonic sound system. Tickets are available from Wednesday at 10.00 am Jacco Gardner has been known to create swirling psychedelic pop boosted by his rich, resonate and baroque voice but on his third album Somnium, his vocals are gone and in their place is an equally seamless melodic exploration but an instrumental one, with a synthesized occult edge.Somnium is a nod to the novel of the same name, written in 1608 by Johannes Kepler and is regarded as the first ever science fiction novel. This book fascinates me because it was basically Kepler travelling in his mind to a non-existent world while describing it, and his journey, with amazing detail. Many of his imagined sensations are actually really what happens when one travels into space,which happened almost four hundred years later. You could call it a vision of the future through his dreams, and I find this aspect very mysterious and powerful. This form of mind travel is what Jacco has set out to create in a sonic, almost alchemic, capacity. Hence the reason for his vocals to be left out of this spiritual journey. I deliberately removed my voice from the experience, as it made it more difficult for me to achieve the intended state of mind. I think it makes the journey more interesting, more deep, and more intimate. I didnt feel the need to show my face while one drifts away into thought. Somnium is a visionary experience. The album is more than just a trip, it is about contact with a deeper -hidden -reality. If the concepts behind this record sound otherworldly and intricately woven then Jacco has also succeeded in making a record that does the same. Analogue synths hum and glide pristinely, bass lines dance buoyantly, dense atmospheres build and form and thoughtfully crafted melodies come and go, floating around as though in space. There are nods to early pioneers of such dreamlike ambience and cosmic exploration -Bo Hansson, Vangelis, Cluster, Tangerine Dream, Eno and Oldfield (the album was mastered by Simon Heyworth whose production credits include the latter three, including Tubular Bells) - but it also exists as a futuristic pursuit, one that is chasing something ahead as well as exploring the past. This is because to Jacco both are equally valid. The past has always felt very much alive to me and so full of mystery that I have to conclude that the present and the future are probably no different.Now living in Lisbon and immersed in literature, cinema, philosophy and with new winding streets to wander, Gardner\'s ideal listening scenario is to take the album for a walk yourselves, consume it complete and without interruption. Somnium could be seen as a tribute to the album, a dying format in todays fast-paced society. It can often be difficult to enjoy a meaningful uninterrupted moment. This album is where true mystery and wonder is waiting to be discovered. Tickets £12 adv

Peter Perrett At The Deaf Institute, Manchester

Peter Perrett returns once again with Humanworld; his second album since signing to Domino, it will be released on June 7th. One of the recent pasts most unexpected come-back stories, Peter Perrett former frontman of The Only Ones - resurfaced in 2017 with How The West Was Won, an album that saw him chart in the UK, star on BBC Newsnight, sell out rooms at Electric Ballroom and Islington Assembly Hall, and collect accolades across the board. The first song to be shared from Humanworld is the albums opening track, I Want Your Dreams. Watch the video for I Want Your Dreams here. Stream I Want Your Dreams here. In this new chapter, Peter continues to dissect romance and politics with his trademark sense of sardonic wit and wry humour, if not with more vigour even and a palpable sense of immediacy. Peter adds, This record has got more urgency and the songs are more concise. Dont like words such as progression but I hope this is texturally and sonically more interesting than How The West Was Won. Peters band includes his guitar and bass playing sons Jamie and Peter Jr, drummer Jake Woodward, Jenny Maxwell (Microkorg synthesiser, viola, BVs) and Lauren Moon (keys, drums, BVs) - a tight-knit bunch who have honed this album and the previous one with choice live performances here and in Europe. Perrett is not unshackled from his past however: I would say that power within is positive but that pessimism has heavy connotations. I have to look for duality in everything. No matter how bad things are there is always salvation in any given situation. There used to be a part of me, maybe still is, that doesnt give a fuck about anything; hence my escapist nature. But having children has changed that. Hence the name of the album. You have to look for the good in the world. A romantic belief perhaps. Im fully aware there are a lot of people who never even thought Id get to make another album, let alone two, in such a short time. Following the years of possibly having too much fun, Peter Perrett is in the process of rebuilding himself, his family, and his art. Working with his sons and fronting his best band, hes firmly back on track. Humanworld features a production credit for Peters son Jamie who also contributes a song to the album (Master of Destruction); and the story of knitting a family back together following a history of chaos and addiction now takes a step closer to centre stage. Tickets on sale now Wednesday 27th March.
