Inglorious

INGLORIOUS – “a young Deep Purple & ‘the future of British rock” (Planet Rock) – we agree! And probably the most exciting classic rock band for bloody years – five young men with a mutual love and respect of the hard rock 70s classics and currently selling out every venue they roll in to.

Yes, the same 70s albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are obvious when you listen to the Inglorious debut album mixed by legendary producer Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith / Maiden / Zepp). This is the music they were born to play together – inspired by Purple, Zepp, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Aerosmith, The Stones, to name but a few.

Formed in February 2014, fronted by Nathan James who made a name for himself with multi-platinum Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians and thought to himself, “Why are those classic albums so awesome?” and realised it was because “the musicians were recording in an organic way; they could track it live and capture amazing energy”.

“Not only in rock but in Motown and even classical they tracked everyone in the room at the same time,” adds Nathan. “The air movement from a bass drum, that same excitement you get when you perform, and that’s exactly how I wanted the album to feel”. Nathan wanted all his fellow musicians in the room at the same time, no click tracks, no auto tune, no overdubs, no compromise!

He continues, “For so long people have been hiding mistakes, singers using auto tune to make them sound perfect, double tracking to make it sound bigger and using click to play in time. There is none of that on this album. This record is about vibe, feeling, excitement, energy and performance of songs we all wrote together. That’s how it came out that day and it will never be exactly the same again. We captured a series of moments that make up our debut album”.

Inglorious are also rhythm guitarist Drew Lowe, lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson, and drummer Phil Beaver.

The band completed their second album in summer of 2016 in between touring with The Winery Dogs, The Dead Daisies, Last in Line and Steel Panther.

The debut album attracted a lot of great press and praise. Queens Brian May said, “You guys really do look like a potent young Deep Purple but with a new slant – very Classic! And the musicianship is stunning. Amazing vocals, by the way!”

Classic Rock… (1) it’s CLASSIC and (2) it ROCKS…

DUE TO THE TERRIBLE EVENTS AT MANCHESTER, THE BAND HAVE ASKED THAT PROMOTION AND TICKET SALES FOR THIS SHOW BE PUT BACK ONE WEEK UNTIL MAY 31.

Ferocious Dog, Leather’o

FEROCIOUS DOG are the music business’ worst nightmare – a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission” – John Robb, Louder Than War

No way this band is following hipster templates – fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs of broken Britain whilst his band seethes like a punky Levellers. A band that has the talent and passion to go on to dominate the folk/punk music scene!

A full-on six-piece sound of folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibes. They can go in hard to get you moving and then slip in to blissful melody or dub-like fusion.

Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard, playing just about everything with strings, bring intricacy to a breakneck pace. Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander tie the whole thing together, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and, let’s be honest, sheer bloody likeability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

2016 was a defining year for Ferocious Dog. From playing Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, to sharing the stage with The Levellers on their sold out European and UK tour and many sold out shows in-between.

Last year’s show was ACE – get down here again!

RSJ Farewell (!) Show, The Family Ruin, “Skeletron”

Over to the band… “After 15 years of blood, sweat & beers, it’s not without heavy hearts that we’ve come to the decision to lay ((RSJ)) to rest.

The road we’ve walked together as musicians, friends and fellow purveyors of noise has been incredible to say the least and we’ll all be forever grateful for all the friends we’ve made and shared a beer with, and to all those who’ve helped us out and supported us along the way. There are too many to mention.

There have been great times and plenty of tough times, but ultimately we’re proud of what we’ve done; the records, the shows…the injuries. Unfortunately, however it’s just not sustainable to keep at it in current times.

So we bid you farewell…almost. We’ll be doing one last show in our home town of York, for old times’ sake, with some very good friends joining us on the bill. Come have a beer!

All’s well that ends well.

Giant Glenn is leaving the building”.

Over to Mr H… I’ve never made any secret that this band have hurt my ears more than any other over the years but also there are few acts I have enjoyed more. York, and far and wide, will never see the like of this again. If you’re in to metal, there is no excuse whatsoever to be otherwise engaged!!

PS ‘Skeletron’ may not be the support’s real name… Just sayin’.

Nothing But Thieves, Airways, Cortes – SOLD OUT!

Following the success of their almighty debut, Southend’s NOTHING BUT THIEVES return with second album, “Broken Machine”, due for release on September 8th via RCA.

Produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975, Foals, Arctic Monkeys and Twenty One Pilots to name a few) and recorded at Ranch Studios in California.

The first single AMSTERDAM, which marks their stunning return, is a huge soaring rock anthem. The track was Mista Jam’s ‘Hottest Record’ on Radio 1 this week.

The band add, “It was inspired by our love of direct, guttural choruses. It’s like Conor is spitting the words in your face. It’s visceral and has momentum but also this beautiful moment in the middle which feels like a break in a sea storm. We didn’t have all the pieces before going in to the studio and this was one of the tracks that really came alive during the recording progress. It pretty much demanded to be our first song back”.

To say Nothing But Thieves have been on an epic journey the past 18 months is an understatement.

Their debut self-titled album has sold over 250k and streamed over 174 million tracks globally to date. These five lads from Southend have gone from playing to a handful of friends in Essex to sold out shows across the country, Muse tours, festival headlines in Europe and in the US and even South Korea (where they played to over 20,000 people) all of which have gained them a rabid fanbase that follows their every move.

The band spent a big chunk of 2016 in America playing shows and performing on everything from Conan O’Brien and James Corden to Jimmy Kimmel. And their album became the bestselling debut from a UK rock band in the US that year.

Major UK shows and festival dates to be announced shortly, in the meantime they will play some small underplay shows in May, and we’re delighted to bring another band heading for the stratosphere to York! Tickets on sale May 10 at 9am, fingers on buzzers ‘cos they ain’t going to last long.

Joe Purdy, Lydia Rose, Boss Caine, Amy Humphrys

A few years back, if someone gave JOE PURDY some lip, he might have left the stage and beat a little sense into the guy. Nowadays, he’s more likely to calm everybody down, assure the loudmouth that he was a welcome and important part of his audience and through words and warmth talk him into sitting back down and join everyone else in enjoying Purdy’s extraordinary music.

What has happened to Joe Purdy? Some might call it growth, although he’s already grown a lot in wandering from his Arkansas home state to Los Angeles, and from there toward and beyond further horizons. Along the way he’s recorded a baker’s dozen worth of albums. His songs have turned up on numerous TV shows and film soundtracks. He even received a special request from Pete Townshend to join him onstage. Purdy said yes.

Even so, in recent years the singer, songwriter and self-described “hillbilly” has come to see the world and his role in it somewhat differently. His new views chart the direction on his latest album, Who Will Be Next? which plants its feet deep in the tradition of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and others while addressing immediate transgressions. 

Purdy’s determination to honour the giants of American folk while applying his unique skills as writer and passionate vocalist reveal just how much he has achieved and evolved as an observer and participant in our times.

Dragonforce

International metal superstars DRAGONFORCE have revealed details of their forthcoming brand new studio album. ‘Reaching Into Infinity’ will be released via EarMUSIC on May 19th on CD, LP and a special edition CD and DVD.

Pure classic melodic and extreme power metal played with outrageous speed, high octane energy and eye-waveringly complex twin guitar wizardry. Apply imaginative songwriting, fantasy-themed lyrics and flair and it’s no wonder DRAGONFORCE are perennial festival headliners and huge-unit album shifters.

And it’s that retro video game-influenced sound that has made the London based-band, formed in 1999 by guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman, and their arpeggios and quick pitch-bends style, a massive draw worldwide.

For their seventh studio album, DRAGONFORCE have opened up their sound like never before, capturing the fierce, forlorn and fun with both menace and melody.

“I think we have proven that playing fast was something we were good at, so this time I wanted to bring even more diversity into our music.” Fred continues. “It’s great to challenge ourselves instead of staying in a comfort zone, and I really wanted to experiment with Marc’s vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality!”

You know this is going to sell out pretty sharpish… ON SALE FRI MAR 31 @ 10am!

Cloudbusting – performing the music of Kate Bush

“If you missed Kate Bush in 2014, go and see CLOUDBUSTING; the next best thing” – Simon Mayo (R2)

Wuthering Heights, This Woman’s Work, Running Up That Hill, Wow, Babooshka, Hounds Of Love, The Man With the Child in His Eyes, Cloudbusting, Army Dreamers, The Sensual World… it’s no wonder Kate Bush was listed No.2 (after John Lennon) in the Telegraph’s best British Singer/Songwriter category.

In 2014 Kate returned to the stage after a thirty five year break, with record-breaking ticket sales whilst becoming the only woman to ever have eight albums simultaneously in the UK charts.

And inspired by Bush’s groundbreaking theatrical concerts, CLOUDBUSTING perform this astonishing music with emotional detail and stimulating visuals.  The five piece band have been gaining critical acclaim not only from audiences around the country but also radio, press and even Kate Bush’s own musicians and collaborators:

“Mandy’s vocals were so good, I could have been listening to Kate herself!” Preston Heyman – Kate Bush Band, Tour of Life

“Absolutely surreally brilliant” – Mick Wall (Classic Rock Magazine)

There can only be one Kate Bush but those who missed out on her live shows will love Cloudbusting, the UK’s longest running and most applauded tribute.

Bringing Kate’s music to a new live audience. The uninitiated will fall under the spell of familiar songs they never knew were written by Kate. Long-time fans will hear favourite album tracks played live for the very first time.

And the final word to Mandy Watson as ‘Kate’…

“The minute I saw her on Top of the Pops back in ’78 I was fascinated by Kate’s vocals – no-one else ever sounded like this! But when I bought The Kick Inside, I discovered there was so much more to her than ‘that voice.’ Her lyrics evoked stories and imagery that entwined effortlessly with unbelievably beautiful and challenging melodies. Ever since then I’ve been in awe of her. I still pinch myself that I get to sing songs from such a diverse repertoire, with a great bunch of guys who all share the same passion for Kate’s music. I get to play Tibetan Bells on Wild Man!”

The Graham Bonnet Band, Evyltyde

GRAHAM BONNET was picked immediately by Ritchie Blackmore for the Rainbow job the moment he sang ‘Mistreated’ at the audition… Despite the James Dean image in contrast to Ronnie James Dio, the subsequent album ‘Down To Earth’ became one of the band’s most successful.

In 1981, Graham resumed his solo career and ‘Night Games’ charted at No 6, although craving to be a band member again he joined MSG, reuniting with long-time friend Cozy Powell. After recording “Assault Attack”, Bonnet returned to Los Angeles to form and release several albums with Alcatrazz which produced guitar greats Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai.

Subsequent solo albums ‘Underground’ and ‘The Day I Went Mad’ were well received and in 2000/1 he joined the Anthem reunion and toured with Don Airey in Bonnet/Airey and Dario Mollo in Elektric Zoo.

From 2002-2006, Graham recorded and toured the world with Iain Ashley Hersey, Michael Schenker, Moonstone Project and Taz Taylor, forming a new Alcatrazz with Howie Simon, Tim Luce and Glen Solel and his Rainbow successor Joe Lynn Turner.

Our hero from Lincolnshire, influenced by The Beatles, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry, continues to tour worldwide and 2014 heads in to Europe on the “Catch The Rainbow” tour, celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Rainbow album “Down To Earth”, responsible for a number of hits for Rainbow and Graham Bonnet.

A show of raw power and nostalgia with Graham re-visiting the vast Rainbow back catalogue of favourites such as I Surrender, Catch the Rainbow, All Night Long, Night Games, Since You’ve Been Gone, Long Live Rock n Roll and many, many others!

Goldray w/ Kenwyn House (Reef), Aloe Veras

Featuring ex-REEF guitarist Kenwyn House, GOLDRAY‘s riff-driven psychedelic whoosh owes as much to the Airplane & Jim Morrison as it does to modern-day outriders Tame Impala and Eternal Tapestry. Leah Rasmussen’s gorgeous, swooping vocals, all breathy and ethereal, echo Kenwyn’s experimental bent.

This is one psych rock band to be taking notice of…

“Pitch together the moodiness of The Doors, the grooviness of Cream and the trippiness of Floyd and you get this splendid prog ‘n’ psych magical carpet ride” – Classic Rock Magazine.

“Sounding like Yeah Yeah Yeahs going toe-to-toe with Queens Of The Stone Age, Goldray combine sensual, serpentine vocals with primal, bone-rattling guitar riffs – the resulting sumptuous concoction gives off the sizzle of British grit, with subtle psychedelic aromas” – Electric Banana.

Goldray, then… think Zepp with Kate Bush – flashes of muscular rock with a stylish hybrid of prog and psychedelia – AWESOME!

The Skatalites, Magnificent 7, Selecter B (Bangarang)

Yup, the legendary SKATALITES are coming to York! From Jamaican origins in ’64 and backing all the developing artists of the day like Toots and The Maytals, Prince Buster and ‘The Wailing Wailers’ (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer) to a wildfire worldwide movement still unstoppable to this day with a huge musical tree including lovers of rock, dub, dancehall/ragga, ska-punk etc

Namechecked by The Police, The Clash, The Specials, The English Beat, Sublime and No Doubt, and all with their roots firmly planted in the music of The Skatalites.

Since reforming after an almost twenty year hiatus in 1983, and beginning regular touring as a unit in 1989, they have not stopped thrilling audiences in every corner of the globe. Even after more than fifty years, and various lineup changes as members leave one stage for another, the band continues to perform and record new music in the inimitable Jamaican style, like only they can.

The road has been long and hard, and sadly, seen most of the original members pass on. Often asked “when will you stop?” and “how do you keep doing it after all these years?”, the answer is simple: never – It’s the love of the music and the way our fans respond that keep us going Forward!

Featuring original vocalist Doreen Shaffer, along with the current lineup of outstanding musicians they have chosen to accompany them, the band proudly presents live the music of Jamaican Ska. Forever indebted to the inspiration and talent of: Roland Alphonso, Lloyd Brevett, Don Drummond, Jerome “Jah Jerry” Haynes, Lloyd Knibb, Tommy McCook, Donat “Jackie” Mittoo, John “Dizzy Johnny” Moore, and Lester Sterling, collectively known as The Skatalites.

The Dickies 40th Anniversary Party, In Evil Hour, Segregates

Clown princes of punk! In contrast to the snotty, intentionally offensive humour of many comedically-inclined punk bands, THE DICKIES were winningly goofy, inspired by trashy movies and pop culture camp.

Their covers were just as ridiculous as their originals, transforming arena rock anthems and bubblegum pop chestnuts alike in to a signature loud, speed-blur punk-pop — Ramones crossed with L.A. hardcore!

As the band got older, their music slowed down slightly, but the sound and sense of humour stayed the same, and they were an avowed influence on new-school punkers like Green Day and Offspring.

Inspired by the first wave of 1977 London/New York punk, they became the first L.A. punk band to score a major-label deal in 1978 with A&M on the strength of one demo.

That year their debut single featured a warp-speed cover of Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ and originals ‘Hideous’ and ‘You Drive Me Ape (You Big Gorilla); the latter, of course, reigned as their signature song for many years after.

In early 1979, debut album, The Incredible Shrinking Dickies, racked up significant UK sales and their cover of the ‘Banana Splits‘ cartoon theme song became a Top Five hit.

By the end of that year, the Dickies were able to put together a follow-up, Dawn of the Dickies, which featured fan favourites ‘Attack of the Mole Men’ and ‘Manny, Moe and Jack’ plus a jokey, rocked-up cover of ‘Nights in White Satin’. And in 1980, a single version of ‘Gigantor’, the theme from a Japanese cartoon series.

An amazing opportunity to catch long-standing legendary L.A. punk vets – the oldest surviving punk band still recording new material by the new millennium. One banana, two banana, three banana, four…

The Icicle Works 2.5 hour show performing the music of Ian McNabb and The Icicle Works

ICICLE WORKS first rose to prominence with two major hits “Birds Fly (Whisper to a Scream)” and “Love is a Wonderful Colour”, the eponymously titled debut album was also a hit on both sides of the Atlantic, achieving gold. And the scousers from the neo-psychedelia movement went on release four more Top 40 albums until splitting immediately after Blind.

The other two members of the band were Chris Layhe (bass & vocals) and Chris Sharrock (drums), the latter went on to enjoy great success playing in Oasis…

Ian went on to record one more album under the name ‘The Icicle Works’ signing to Epic in 1989 and using session musicians in place of the now departed Chris’s. Permanent Damage was released in March 1990, but fared badly in the midst of the then exploding ‘Madchester scene.’ Ian comes from Liverpool!

Great critical and commercial enduring success through the years, including Mercury nomination, has always followed Ian McNabb who, from personal experience, we can testify to being one of the loveliest people in rock and roll, his solo releases always making end of year ‘best-of’ lists as well.

Ian’s love for classic 60s/70s power pop and rock, with clear nods to the likes of Badfinger, Who, T Rex, Beach Boys etc shines through and Icicle Works anniversary tours always sell out.

Ian has been a professional musician since the age of fifteen, when he used to play at workingmen’s social clubs in the northwest of England, although he now reckons he’s only just getting started. Good start Ian…

The Real People, Psyence, Barry Sutton (La’s, Cast) + aftershow ’til 3am w/ DJs Dave Booth (Stone Roses/Hacienda), Dermo (Northside), Nick Cope & Nikki Eccentric

THE REAL PEOPLE were Britpop before Britpop was invented, an inspired and fun rehash of the 60s British Invasion, and Liverpudlian brothers Tony and Chris Griffiths put together an influential brew of psychedelic rock, ’70s funk, and late-’80s dance music (“Window Pane” / “Open up Your Mind’) wooing modern rock radio listeners in the early ’90s.

Credited by many bands as an influence, most notably Oasis, The ‘Realies’ are also successful Top 40 hit songwriters for the likes of Cher, Ocean Colour Scene, BB Mak and Atomic Kitten. Still going stronger than ever with a new album Monday Morning Breakdown out now The Real People are STILL on fire.

Blues rock-inspired heavy alt-rockers PSYENCE could only come from Stoke… Already being lauded NME, Q, Clash, Quietus and The Guardian, they’re blurring the lines of early 70’s blues rock and modern-day psychedelia, so expect an intense chemical reaction of face-melting riffs, spacious vocals and groove-based rhythms that have been locked away up north to slowly mature far away from the London scene.

BARRY SUTTON (The La’s/Cast) will treat us to some of the classics alongside his own solo work!

DJ DAVE BOOTH was the Stone Roses’ DJ, working Spike Island, Blackpool, Alexandra Palace, and all the great Roses gigs that have now become the stuff of pop culture legend. Djing for over 30 years now from Manchester to Ibiza at legendary clubs such at Pips, Hacienda and Garland he still has the heart & soul for music he was born with.

And introducing DERMO (Northside), signed to Factory in ’91 and very much a part of the Madchester/baggy/indie-rave scene. Currently Djing countrywide with a mix of indie & old school classics.

Yup, that’s right – legendary AC/DC drummer PHIL RUDD, veteran of all but three of AC/DC’s 18 studio albums, Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and (previously) fully signed-up member of the rock’n’roll lifestyle club (“…after Highway to Hell went multi-platinum worldwide I headed straight down the road to buy my first Ferrari”) is coming to York!

This gig with a genuine legend (fag-in-gob AC/DC version of Phil here Back In Black / River Plate) is going to rock like a b*st*rd, and if other shows on this tour are anything to go by it’s going to sell out real quick…
