Bob Log III / Fri 5 June / Night & Day

"And then there's this guy named Bob Log, you ever heard of him? Hes this little kid nobody ever knows how old he is wears a motorcycle helmet and he has a microphone inside of it and he puts the glass over the front so you cant see his face, and plays slide guitar. Its just the loudest strangest stuff youve ever heard. You dont understand one word hes saying. I like people who glue macaroni on to a piece of cardboard and paint it gold. That's what I aspire to basically Bob Log III, Fat Possum recording artist and one man band crown prince of punk blues from Tuscon, Arizona. Witnessing Bob Log live is an unmissable and unforgettable experience. By rights he should be a punk blues stadium super star. He takes to the stage with his face masked in a crash helmet with a black visor and a telephone wired in it for a mic and wearing a blue jump suit. Bob then unleashes a torrent of hardcore Mississippi Delta blues, hip hop beats and punk rock. The crash helmet telephone distorts the vocals and his hands, arms, legs and feet become a blur of jump suit clad limbs as he plays slide, triggers drum machines and drums with his feet simultaneously. Bob then adds extra ingredients to this punk blues bouillabaisse with his unique version of audience participation. More often them not hell bounce a couple of audience members on his knees while playing, and then bring on the infamous Boob Scotch. The audience are invited to literally stick their boob in his scotch which he then drinks. If Bob feels satisfied he will then launch into his anthem Boob Scotch! Bob Log's identity and history is shrouded in mystery and rumour, probably helped by his stage get up and also when his record company Fat Possum put out an early press release claiming Log had a monkeys paw grafted on to his wrist after a boating accident as a child. Here's an excerpt....."When Bob Log III was a child, he lost his left hand in a boating accident. It was soon replaced with a monkey paw, and a new guitar style was born. 'It's my own personal style, see,' Log says, 'the paw moves much quicker than a normal hand, so my real hand has to flop around a lot to compensate.'" When asked to explain Fat Possums insistence that his right hand is a monkeys paw, Log replied to an interviewer that, My hand is just hairy. Very, very hairy. It is NOT a PAW. Fat Possum was drunk. Log further clarified the monkey paw myth in an interview with Bizarre Magazine: "I've got all my limbs. It's just that when I'm playing my guitar my hand moves so fast it looks like a monkey paw, a hairy paw. My hand moves really fast. Faster than a normal human hand In fact Bob Log III was born in Tucson, Arizona and is a virtuoso slide player who plays with extremely thick strings tuned very loose that gives him his unique floppy sound. Growing up, Log listened to artists such as Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and AC/DC, later commenting that "That\'s what rock\'n\'roll is to me. You take a guitar, turn it up and have a good timeeveryone else can go listen to Pearl Jam if they want to. Bob Log got his first guitar at the age of 11, and by the age of 16 he had become smitten with Delta Blues, modelling his slide guitar style on that of Mississippi Fred McDowell. Log began his music career recording with Mondo Guano, a four-piece metal-blues band based in Arizona. Upon leaving Mondo Guano, Log went on to perform as one-half of seminal early Delta punk blues duo Doo Rag. Bob Log III was born when Bob was in the middle of a US tour with Doo Rag and his drummer quit. With necessity , ever the mother of invention, Bob donned a helmet he had picked up in a thrift store, took to the stage and kicked his guitar case for percussion and thus the legend of Bob Log was born. Bob Log eventually found his spiritual home on maverick Mississippi blues label Fat Possum in 1998 and released a trio of classic records: School Bus, Trike and Log Bomb. In this current world of homogenised and mass marketed music, we need true mavericks like Bob Log III more than ever. www.boblog111.com www.facebook.com/boblogiii www.instagram.com/boblog111 www.twitter.com/boblogiii

Gary Meikle - Surreal

After his meteoric rise through the ranks, Scottish Comedy Award winner and viral sensation Gary Meikle is back with his second tour show, Surreal! A word that perfectly describes Gary\'s last twelve months. He started the year performing in comedy clubs, and ended it selling out big theatres in the UK as well as tours in America, Canada and Europe! Not one for mincing his words, Gary has been described as "playfully dark". His cheeky chappie nature and ability to get away with talking about anything will have you laughing at things you probably shouldn\'t be! As always, Gary will draw material from his own real-life experiences, including his unique family dynamic and his rapid rise to online fame. Quickly putting his audiences at ease, a night of stand up with Gary feels like a night in the pub chatting with friends! Having performed to tens of thousands of people over the past year, Gary has found a new confidence and level of openness on stage, meaning he doesn\'t hold back on giving his opinions, no matter how warped! The new show will cover topics such as evolution, social media, how to deal with burglars, single mums, bee sex, small man syndrome and much more. Gary is a fast paced, punchy storyteller that finds the funny in anything! Doors // 7.15pm Performance // 8pm

Viagra Boys - Manchester, Gorilla

Strange Days presents Viagra Boys + guest Live at Gorilla, Manchester 17th June 2020 14+ The Viagra Boys play one last victory lap for their incredible Street Worms album with a show on 17th April. Some say Viagra Boys is something akin to a mirror for the absurdum of existence and illusions of realness, a twisted and ferociously bass-driven judgement on western society, a distorted 24/7 party on the acid highway going nowhere fast. Or perhaps more like a crude joke on modern masculinity, serving up escapist narrative slacking any form of self-preservation; like an obscure back alley door into the backwaters of the human psyche. Metaphors aside, Viagra Boys is an unapologetically raw sextet comprised of classically trained jazz musicians, karaoke loving tattoo artists and seasoned hardcore scene veterans, churning out spastic, pulsating sounds from the sub levels of contemporary rock music a bellowing, unstoppable force majeure of latter-day punk, PTSD disco and synthetically enhanced kraut. And as equal parts Iggy Pop and Hank Williams, singer and frontman Sebastian Murphy embodies all that which Viagra Boys are ultimately about; a fractured, perhaps disillusioned act, wrapped up and held together by inextinguishable bravado, explosive appearances and resourceful songwriting. Now, with over 180 feverish live shows to support their latest release Street Wormsunder their belt, several Grammy nominations and an Impala Award in the bag, ViagraBoys are ready to retreat back to their Stockholm studio to work on new music but not without announcing the last victory lap for Street Worms, a one-off EU spring/summer2020 tour.

Enescu Octet: Manchester

Quite simply, weve put a bunch of our favourite music into this show. Rather than sticking to a single theme or composer, in this programme we get the chance to show off our musical range - to flex our muscles as we get close and personal with some of the greatest music ever written. This show takes us from focused and intense works for just one instrument (Bachs G Major Cello Suite), to the huge combined string sound of Enescus String Octet; from the shape-shifting Koan by James Tenney to the haunting Modlitwa, a musical prayer by father-daughter compositional team, Andrzej and Roxanna Panufnik. For the last time this season, well be touring our trademark radical human experience through live music to concert halls, warehouses, clubs, and factories all over the UK. In the words of Stephen Pritchard (Observer/Guardian/Bachtrack): Catch it if you can - the future has arrived. --- "Catch it if you can - the future has arrived." - Bachtrack Pierrot Lunaire is without doubt the craziest, most mental, intense, dark and passionate piece of art Ive ever witnessed." - @GingerLoveGod --- Programme JBach Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major Panufnik Modlitwa Tenney Koan Tavener The Lamb Enescu String Octet in C Major, Op. 7 Creative Team Manchester Collective String Octet

Soccer Mommy - Manchester, Gorilla

Now Wave Presents: Soccer Mommy +guests 24th June 2020 14+ show I dont want to be your fucking dog, sings Soccer Mommys Sophie Allison on Your Dog, a highlight from her new album Clean. Over knotty, distorted guitars and churning bass, Allison is equal turns confrontational and vulnerable. I want a love that lets me breathe/Ive been choking on your leash. Its a mission statement, a reclamation of power, a rewriting of all indie rocks rules. Soccer Mommy is the project of twenty-year-old Sophie Allison, a Nashville native. She cut her teeth in her local DIY scene, going to shows and hanging out with other musicians, though she kept her own songwriting secret. Ive played music since I was six, says Allison, and I always wrote songs just for myself. I did it for fun, posting songs on Tumblr, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud. I didnt think anyone would notice. All that changed the summer before Allison left for college. She bought a Tascam digital recorder and began to experiment with production, pushing the quality and craft of her songs to new heights A buzz began to grow around her Bandcamp recordings, leading to live shows and eventually a record deal, with 2017s critically acclaimed bedroom-recorded compilation Collection. I realized that I could do this full-time, says Allison. It was either quit school now and do it, or stop growing as an artist. It was now or never.

Legendary Shack Shakers / Tue 30 June / Night & Day

DHP Family present Legendary Shack Shakers Advance Tickets via TicketWeb UK : https://tinyurl.com/ShackShakers2020 Nearly twenty-five years into their worldwide crusade, Legendary Shack Shakers have become the leaders in the underground music scenes Southern Gothic sound. Led by their charismatic front man, Col. JD Wilkes, the band continues to wow crowds with their explosive interpretations of swamp blues, rock n\' roll and hillbilly music, making fans, critics, and now, an entire new generation into true believers. Between intermittent hiatuses to work on other projects (including JD\'s sideshow banner-style artwork for acts like The Squirrel Nut Zippers and Marty Stuart...plus his two published books The Vine That Ate the South and Barn Dances & Jamborees Across Kentucky), the band is constantly re-inventing and re-mobilizing, much to the excitement of many a Shack Shakers fanatic. Despite Wilkes\' extracurricular projects, the Shakers\' reputation for intense entertainment endures. On stage, JD has been compared to the likes of Iggy Pop, David Byrne, and Jerry Lee Lewis. The Nashville Scene named Wilkes the best frontman in Nashville, while former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra has called JD the last great Rock and Roll frontman. Guitar virtuoso, Gary Siperko (Pere Ubu, Rocket from the Tombs, Drivin and Cryin) intones a variety of styles, from delta blues to gypsy jazz, while the rhythm section rounds out with drummer Preston Corn (The Dirt Daubers) and Fuller Condon (Two Man Gentlemen Band) thumping the upright bass. With nine critically acclaimed studio albums (and songs that have been featured on television shows such as HBOs True Blood, CBSs The Unit , Swamp Loggers, and movies like Julia Roberts Duplicity), the band shows no sign of stopping. Past tour mates and fans include Sturgill Simpson, Reverend Horton Heat, Rancid, The Black Keys, Slim Cessnas Auto Club, and Hank Williams III. Robert Plant is also a noted Legendary Shack Shakers fan, and picked the band to open for him on his Strange Sensation tour of Europe. Plant named the band\'s third album Believe as one of his favorite records, and the list of esteemed admirers goes on to include horror novelist Stephen King. King listed CB Song as among his iPods Top Five in an Entertainment Weekly article. Such a wealth of devoted, cult-like fans has only added to the mystique that the Legendary Shack Shakers possess, carrying them down the road toward new creative pursuits and intense new music and ideas. Col. J.D. Wilkes lets loose on the (harmonica) like an Old Western mob on a prisoner. Come for a sh*t-kickin good time" Pitchfork (Wilkes) is the closest thing there is to the Ambassador of Genuine Traditional Southern Culture" ALARM Magazine "I think JD\'s one of those genius guys. I love the fact that he\'s experimental. He\'s a very creative cat" Billy Bob Thornton AgriDustrial (is) a masterpiece of experimental music" Creative Loafing Its f***ing great!"

Lee Rocker (of The Stray Cats) + The Deadshots & The Crawlin' Kin

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.
