Dar Williams

“One of America’s very best singer-songwriters, DAR WILLLIAMS‘ songs are beautiful. Some are like finely crafted short stories. They are, variously, devastatingly moving, tenderly funny, subtle without being in any way inaccessible, and utterly fresh, not a cliche or a clunker in her entire songbook” – high and deserved praise from The New Yorker…

Known for lyrical and evocative songwriting and singing, Dar has been a leading figure in the folk-rock world for nearly 20 years, but remains both ambitious and pleasingly plainspoken.

Collaboration with the likes of Jill Sobule, Richard Thompson, The Milk Carton Kids, Jim Lauderdale, Suzzy Roche, Lucy Wainwright Roche, Bryn Roberts, Trevor Gordon Hall, Angel Snow and The Hooters show the reverence in which this wonderfully talented performer is held.

We’ve bagged one of only a few UK dates this year; ladies and gents a genuine USA folk-country legend in the house…

Too Many Zooz

Utterly bloody sensational ‘brasshouse’ trio from the subways of New York City; TOO MANY ZOOZ will blow your mind.

Three years ago you had to pass through Union Square station to catch this amazing music but thanks to a passing stranger’s video they’re now smashing sales records at venues worldwide. Oh, and appearing with Beyonce…

It’s a relentless groove machine, a mishmash of jazz, Afro Cuban rhythms and funk crossed over with EDM and House, the kind that makes any animal, two legged or four, quite unable to stand still on its feet.

Leo P, Matt Doe and ‘The King Of Sludge’ are here to bump, beat and blow their way in to your world. It’s instrumental morphine, it’s deep sax grooves and blistering percussion, it’s ****ing AMAZING!

And early purchase is recommended…

October Drift, Altar Flowers

When OCTOBER DRIFT appeared in 2015 with a beefy yet melodic noise, they had the confidence to win over all audiences and ever since then, from multiple sold out tours up and down the UK, to growing online hype around their sparse but eloquent releases, they’ve done just that, becoming a major success story on the independent circuit.

Despite the early success of their incendiary debut singles – receiving support from Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy and Q magazine to name but a few – and string of sold-out gigs, this band still remain something of an enigma.

And the music is similarly ambiguous, characterised by their signature wall of sound guitars, soaring, soulful vocals and driving drums – reminding your correspondent of Longview.

‘Selling out some of the best small venues in Britain thanks to a flourishing reputation for live shows’ – The Independent

The band have gained a reputation for delivering blistering, high-energy live shows. Indeed, their first tour sold out before even releasing their first single, such is the buzz around their live performances.

‘Bellowing bluster of guitars and thumping instrumentation that should act as a vehement and fully-charged bridge in to wherever they might head next’ – Gold Flake Paint

With shows at BBC6 Music Festival, Dot to Dot, Tramlines and Camden Rocks already under their belts alongside a cult fan base spreading the word, and a focus too few peers in their position possess, the immediate future is very bright (and very loud).

Embrace – SOLD OUT!

It seems like forever, but Embrace are excited to finally announce their new album, Love Is A Basic Need. And we’re delighted to welcome them as part of a short tour of intimate venues. You can pre-order the album now and get exclusive tour pre-sale access HERE

Brothers Danny and Richard McNamara, the forces behind West Yorkshire’s Embrace, once achieved Indie anthems of epic Coldplay proportions (who actually supported Embrace early in their career!).

From stadium classics like the top ten hits ‘All You Good Good People’ and ‘Come Back To What You Know’ to their three number one albums, sold out arena shows and well over a million album sales behind them, Embrace were on the crest of a wave when they suddenly vanished without a trace.

“In the end, the good doesn’t come out,” Danny reflects on former philosophies. “In the end, you die on your own. And what that does is it informs every moment you’re alive, in that it’s precious and finite and short. And that’s what’s informing this record – it’s almost the opposite…” He pauses, before concluding: “It’s like coming full circle from the first record…”

Embrace have come back, but what they know means more now than ever before – that being alive is one thing; living it is everything. Embrace it, always.

Anvil

PROUDLY presenting Canadian legends ANVIL – Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow’s frenzied guitar playing and drummer Robb Reiner, childhood friends, brandished what was then a new form of very fast, very raucous heavy metal.

The band’s ground-breaking second album, Metal on Metal (“KKKKK – a work of genius” – Kerrang!) featured Tap-esque gems “Butter-Bust Jerky” (detailing an exotic practice involving dairy produce and an ample lady) and “Show Me Your Tits” which, Lips insisted, was a political song celebrating women’s freedom of expression.

Anvil were contenders. The band’s ultra-heavy, proto-thrash sound would prove influential on numerous acts from Metallica to Guns N’ Roses. But, while their disciples laughed all the way to the bank, Anvil sank into obscurity.

They had gone from playing gigs in front of 20,000 people to playing in Detroit in front of one person. And that was a diehard fan for whom they had waived the entrance fee. It never occurred to Anvil to cancel the gig…

And then, a miracle…

Rescued from obscurity by acclaimed Hollywood director Sacha Gervasi’s documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil (often described as ‘Rocky with Marshall Amplification’) which followed the 80s Canadian heavy metal pioneers on a disastrous ‘comeback’ tour – men in their fifties doggedly pursuing their music for paltry return.

“It was that “yet” that got me”, said Sacha. “What was 25 years of humiliation and setbacks? Lips and Robb were now in their fifties, family men. But they were still optimistic about fulfilling their ambition to be rock stars”.

Anvil have spent decades chasing dreams. But if you’ve dedicated all that time to the thing you love, maybe that’s not chasing the dream. Maybe that’s living it…

“The true majesty of Anvil”, says Lips, “Has not yet been recognised, dude.”

You’ve read about them, watched the film – now catch legends in the flesh!

Vant – “The Last Days Of Punk” tour

VANT – the brainchild of Mattie Vant from the North East; born out of discontent and frustration at a fucked up world, with an arsenal of short, poignant and socially-aware remedies ignorant of most modern consumerist pop.

Completed by Henry Eastham (guitar), Billy Morris (bass) and Greenie (drums); think Kinks meets Pixes in two and a half minute onslaughts. Mattie’s lyrics are incredibly important, wanting to leave his mark with music to stir the mind as well as the heart.

After an industry feeding frenzy, the band signed to Parlophone, and released limited edition double-A side ‘Parasite’ / ‘Do You Know Me?’ (Dumb Blood Records) on baby pink vinyl.

Zane Lowe made ‘Parasite’ his Next Hype, playing it three times in one show; followed by Radio 1, Radio X and Amazing Radio with next release, ‘The Answer’ – named as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World and then added to Radio 1’s In New Music We Trust playlist.

VANT’s third single ‘Parking Lot’ built upon their growing acclaim, Annie Mac again gave a Hottest Record in the World accolade. Further Radio 1 support following with plays courtesy of Clara Amfo, Greg James and Gemma Cairney plus a blistering session for Huw Stephens.

VANT’s live shows have provoked UK-wide chaos with mosh pits and stage invasions, alongside Royal Blood, Fidlar, Hinds and The Bohicas; and busy storming summer festival schedules included Reading, Leeds, The Great Escape, Dot To Dot, Calling Festival, Secret Garden Party, Y Not and Bingley.

Throughout, reviewers glowingly compared the band with an eclectic array of classic bands – Manic Street Preachers, The Strokes, MC5, Pixies, Queens of the Stone Age and DFA 1979, to name but a few.

Over to Mattie Vant, “This summer we made our US debut in New York and Chicago at Lollapalooza, we’ve been all over Europe and last weekend we played the biggest shows we’ve ever done on the main stages of Reading & Leeds Festivals. This autumn we’re going back to the spirit of punk, back into intimate venues across the UK, many in places we’ve never played before, getting up close with our audience and bringing the Dumb Blood era to a hot and sweaty conclusion before starting work on our next album.”

Zodiac Mindwarp & The Love Reaction, The Idol Dead

Ultra-sleazy hard rock – big riffs and big choruses from the Prime Mover himself ZODIAC MINDWARP. Occasionally labelled biker rock parodying the post-apocalyptic “Mad Max” look but mainly outrageously camp and self-parodying suggestive lyrics and song titles alongside a kick-ass ROCK band.

Back Seat Education / Feed My Frankenstein / High Heeled Heaven and Trash Madonna illustrate the tongue-in-cheek approach as well as sending up cult worship and Zodiac’s self-proclaimed raging libido as ‘Love dictator’ and ‘High priest of love’. All wrapped up in Holy Gasoline, President of the United States of Love, Messianic Reprise, Planet Girl and Elvis Died for You.

If you want to revisit that time when rock meant rock and just rocked this is the night for you. For fans of Alice Cooper, Kiss, Motley Crue, Cheap Trick & New York Dolls!

Syd Arthur, Televangelists

SYD ARTHUR have had a stellar 18 months. From playing huge USA arena shows, touring with fellow progressive-experimentalists White Denim as well as The Strokes to releasing their most successful album to date, Apricity, their reputation stands as a seriously creative force.

Formed out of their own home county’s forest party rave scene, and with a hard-won DIY self- sufficiency, Syd Arthur developed a sound and approach miles beyond their foursquare indie peers using swirling rock with psychedelic textures, guitar-based trance with a groove; adaptive and bold.

So here’s your three minute warning for a psychedelic jazz bomb, uniquely soulful and trippy but in the best possible taste. Steely Dan meets Todd Rundgren? Dynamic and prog-inspired with crunching chords and minor keys a la Tame Impala; unconventional time signatures and clever jazzy riffing. Oh my word, we bloody love this band. And so does the press…

“Modern-day cosmic rock from Canterbury band of brothers” – Mojo Album Of The Week | No: 18 Albums of 2017

“Unique, soulful and trippy in the best sense” – The Guardian

“As playful as they are serious and as innovative as they are traditional, this is surely what Syd Arthur set out to be.” ⋆⋆⋆⋆ – Q

“Super summery & nostalgia-tinged… sounds like it’s being played through an Instagram filter – very chilled and with this underlying theme of lost innocence” – The Independent

Syd Arthur is brothers Liam Magill (vocals, guitar, Joel Magill (bass, vocals), and Josh Magill (drums) and Raven Bush (violin, keyboards, mandolin). This is a show you really should be at.

British Sea Power

BRITISH SEA POWER have always taken a broad and panoramic perspective drawing on historical events and mirroring the ageless wonders of the natural world. 

March 2017’s epic album Let The Dancers Inherit The Party covers everything from the stars at night to media manipulation; alluding to a world of chaos and disorder whilst answering with optimism and hope. Melodic, direct and urgent, rock muscle conjoins immediate pop like a crate of champagne exploding in a Marshall stack.

It follows on from 2013’s Machineries Of Joy (‘Their best record yet, a triumph of sophisticated rock engineering” – Q Mag) and since then the band have released two film soundtracks and recorded a third; delivered the theme to BT Sports European Championship; re-issued their classic debut album The Decline of British Sea Power and 2015 compilation Sea Of Brass (a kind of best-of-BSP recorded with the UK’s leading brass orchestras).

All the while enthralling fans by gigging in ever more bizarre and unconventional locations.

Let The Dancers Inherit The Party is a return to the exhilarating guitar music that has seen them nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and drawn praise from David Bowie and Lou Reed. Not to mention the National Maritime Museum, Doctor Who, Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes.

In a world of manufactured and formulaic pop, British Sea Power stand head and shoulders above all in a triumph of originality and pushing the envelope. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Dust Junkys, Gimp Mask

Mancunian rap-rock revolutionaries with unfinished business feat. original members including audacious frontman Nicky Lockett (aka MC Tunes), guitarist Sam Brox, Stephen “OJ” Oliver on bass and drummer Mykey Wilson PLUS Manchester DJ Vince Vega; featuring all the classic Done & Dusted album and brand new material due for 2018 release.

A big-beat bar band with old-school smarts, DUST JUNKYS are headed by the former MC Tunes (Nicky Lockett), a rapper who fronted 808 State for the Top 20 singles “The Only Rhyme That Bites” and “Tunes Splits the Atom.”

Boasting top tunes and an enviable live reputation touring with Fun Loving Criminals & Black Grape, turning heads on TFI Friday, cover splashes across leading pop culture mags, rampant festival sets at Glastonbury and Reading Festival followed and soon enough the rest of the nation caught up.

And a fan in Fatboy Slim, the superstar DJ would in turn provide the band with their biggest hit when sampling their Rinse (Beatbox Wash) as the backbone for his global smash “Gangster Tripping”.

Lockett formed Dust Junkys by 1995 and struggling to be signed the band hit the road and were signed by Polydor debuting with the single “WHAT TIME IS IT?” (from album Done and Dusted) followed by NOTHING PERSONAL & NON STOP OPERATION.

Capturing the mood of the recent 2016/17 shows, Clint Boon said, “The Dust Junkys were, quite simply, one of the best live bands I ever saw. It felt like they were pioneers of something we’d not had before. Rappers just weren’t fronting rock bands in 1996. Nicky Lockett was. Great to have them back. Rinse it boys!”.

“Loved the Dust Junkys, Manchester got it. But London didn’t… That’s our loss” – Alan McGee

“… probably were the best band in the country at that time” – Graham Massey (808 State)

“Absolutely brilliant live” – Terry Christian

The Mouse Outfit ft. Dubbul O, Dr Syntax & Ellis Meade w/ special guests Vox Cornelious & Mike Dennis

Proving it’s not always grim up North, Manchester-based production team THE MOUSE OUTFIT‘s jaw-dropping lyrical acrobatics and smooth grooves are a smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk and reggae made all the better by not taking itself too seriously, putting a grin on your face.

This is one slick helluva hip hop production team from Manchester led by Chini (Producer/keyboards), Defty (Bass)+ Pitch (Producer/MPC/Percussion) featuring a 9-piece live band with drums, horns, bass, keys, percussion, guitar and a rotating roster of Manchester’s most talented MCs.

Expect an eclectic style of hip hop tinged with some extremely tight jazz musicianship from an extremely talented band gives them a very old-school golden age vibe before it was invaded by pop. A slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats.

Their debut 19 track album ‘Escape Music’ was released in May 2013 featuring Black Josh, Dr Syntax, Dubbul O, Fox, Kosyne, Lyricalligraphy, Sparkz, DJ Sammy B-Side and Truthos Mufasa. It won the Wordplay magazine ‘Album of the Year’ award.

Their second album ‘Step Steadier’ was released in 2015 featuring Dr Syntax, Cutterz, Dubbul O, Ellis Meade, Jman, Fox, Verb T, Sparkz, Tman and Truthos Mufasa. It was included in the ABC News ‘Top 50 albums of 2015’.

Integrating the extreme and melodic elements in 2007 they self-released debut EP The Sleep of the Innocents and debut album Portraits was released two years later (Basick Records).

Following Portraits release in Japan and the United States in 2010, the band toured continuously across the USA, Europe and Japan supporting Asking Alexandria, Of Mice and Men, Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce the Veil

Their most recent album, Earthbound, was released in January 2016 (Nuclear Blast Records).

Glass Caves (The “I Do” Tour) w/ Razz, Pura Vida, Alleyways

From busking in their student days to live sessions with Dermot O’Leary to nationwide sold out tours and high praise in the quality press. And GLASS CAVES are back here again at Fibbers, “It wouldn’t be a real Glass Caves tour without a stop off at our favourite York venue, the place where it all began”.

“Glass Caves quickly became a word of mouth phenomenon. Each song seemed to be carefully honed, with the band’s craftman-ship allowing them to gradually sand down rough edges, refining their voice on their travels” – Clash Music

“This classic, nostalgic sound is energising and exciting with heavy guitar riffs and a wonderfully northern vocal” – GQ Magazine

“Either way, their indie rock intuition will grab and shake you till you’re ready to dance it out on the dance floor” – The 405 Blog

“Glass Caves are going to be on everyone’s lips in the coming months with their blend of alt-rock mixed with electronics and good old Brit indie” – It’s All Indie Blog

And we say…

It’s quite a trick to pen great songs. Y’know, tunes that people remember and sing along to at the tops of their voices. Stuff that soundtracks their lives. Glass Caves are such a band. They have that knack of effortlessly yanking huge melodies out of the bag and making you think what a great song – who wrote it? Oh yeah … THEY did.

Martin Turner ex-Wishbone Ash & band (classic Wishbone material and more plus full performance of ‘There’s The Rub’

Classic WISHBONE ASH material and more by co-founder MARTIN TURNER EX-WISHBONE ASH & BAND, plus a full performance of classic album ‘There’s The Rub!

Formed by Martin Turner and Steve Upton who envisaged the band’s innovative twin-guitar hallmark sound, recruiting guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell along the way.

That original partnership forged a unique musical identity that would produce some of rock music’s best loved works and influence numerous successful bands and result in millions of album sales and concert attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring and best loved British rock acts and its name synonymous with high quality guitar-driven melodic rock.

As lead vocalist and key creative force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s most revered albums, with his passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production values being a key ingredient in the definitive Wishbone Ash sound.

Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up and says, “I have had a wonderful time over the past few years re-discovering the wider Wishbone Ash catalogue and taking this to the people. When I go to see an artist live, I want to hear the songs as I remember them from the records and I believe that is true of the Wishbone Ash audience too”.

Over four decades later, the enduring music of the classic marks of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new.

Classic album releases such as Argus, Pilgrimage, There’s the Rub, New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and have touched the hearts of several generations of music fans.

The tour will feature classic album tracks and stage favourites from the extensive Wishbone Ash repertoire, as well as new music that remains true to the original Wishbone Ash blueprint.

The first single from the album, ‘Behind the Scenes’ was 6Music playlisted with 50+ plays alongside 150k YouTube hits. Still Hungry hit the Top 10 in the iTunes Hip Hop Charts as well as hitting #1 in the overall Bandcamp album charts.

And, of course, we all know the amazing vids directed by Ruben Fleischer; yeah we’re talking rapping and breakdancing costumed animals of “We Know Something You Don’t Know” w/ Chali 2na & Akil (Jurassic 5) – an unforgettable piece of feel good hip hop.

An unrivalled Marxist machine gun, ALABAMA 3 ACOUSTIC are on a mission to get you mashed!

Heeding Woodie Guthrie’s message, Alabama 3 have never feared the reduction of their technology, and are brave enough to hit the road armed only with battered acoustic guitar and harmonica, preaching Guthrie’s infamous phrase… ‘This machine kills fascists’.

In homage to classic delta blues slide players Mississippi Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker and their own Rockfree Base, everybody’s favourite Brixton warriors present their own narco-acoustic slant on “Sweet Mutherfucking Country Acid House” – and the music that has inspired them along the way.

Complete with Larry Love’s gravelly ash-stained vocals and Nick Reynolds’ bank robber melodies on harmonica, prepare yourself for a helluva raucous show, in no way resembling the usual byword for an acoustic gig… BOR-ING!



Fresh from their full band recording of 2016’s ‘Blues’, fans are loving the acoustic arrangements along with that awesome back catalogue.

Cud – The Singles Tour, w/ special guests Soma Crew

Emerging from the same art/design cauldron that produced fellow Leeds legends Soft Cell, Scritti Politti, and The Mekons, CUD were the pre-Britpop answer to doleful shoegazing bands – fun-loving, light-hearted, romantic and downright catchy.

Alternatively loved or loathed like a yeast extract, CUD are indie rock for the unpretentious pleasure seeker, boasting as they do the rich deep-lunged voice of Carl Puttnam, edgy guitars of Mike Dunphy and tight, funky rhythm section of William Potter, bass and Gogs Byrn, drums.

CUD were initially lauded for their quirky Peel session cover of ‘You Sexy Thing’ in 1987. They soon built up a huge live following and buffed up their repertoire with a string of unstraight pop beauties, best exemplified by the 1990 album ‘Leggy Mambo’. This led to a major-label deal with A&M in 1991, front-page NME coverage, massive sellout gigs and proper Top 30 hits, ‘Rich and Strange’ and ‘Purple Love Balloon’.

Misunderstood by record companies and press, CUD packed away their guitars and sticks in 1995 but, bolstered by a greatest hits anthology (‘Rich and Strange’) in 2006, they agreed to tread the boards again and found an army of ‘Space CUDets’ still eager to sing along, dance like fruitcakes and invade the stage.

Leeds art students form band, create cult indie-pop and funk sensation, tour with the Pixies and session with John Peel. The pre-Britpop answer to sad-eyed shoegaze, and bursting with originality, humour and a fuck-you-we’re-from-Leeds attitude. What’s not to love?

Uli Jon Roth, The Ali Clinton Band

The musical career of ULI JON ROTH spans an amazing five decades; a unique and multi faceted phenomenon with an international reputation as a musical visionary and innovator, and inventor of the ‘Sky Guitar’ which featured a much extended fingerboard and the ability to play much higher top notes – copied by several companies almost immediately.

During his five year tenure in The Scorpions (appearing on albums Fly To The Rainbow, In Trance, Virgin Killer and Taken by Force) Uli built the foundation for his guitar legend status establishing himself as one of the main songwriters and soon gained an international reputation as one of the most important innovators of the electric guitar.

Uli was the first to significantly introduce a whole armoury of classical techniques and know-how earning him the title “Father of neo-classical” and as early as 1976, was playing fast and exciting diminished arpeggio runs during songs like Catch Your Train and the iconic Sails of Charon.

This had never been heard before in rock music and many of Uli’s ground-breaking techniques, his runs, phrasings, arpeggios – even dive bombs – became a blue-print and stepping-stone for legions of younger guitarists, who tried to emulate his style and ideas. This included younger players like Eddie van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, who – before embarking of successful careers of their own and becoming famous in their own right – have named him as a major influence.

Uli’s fast arpeggios, which encompassed several octaves, and his highly melodic, sometimes unorthodox runs and ingenious use of phrygian and myxolydian modes have helped to spawn a generation of so-called “shredders”. Eddie van Halen and Yngwie Malmsteen also used a lot of Uli’s arpeggios and phrases as inspiration, speeding them up and creating their own styles of superfast playing.

Over the years, Uli has gained a reputation as being an accomplished improviser on the guitar, able to play virtually anything unpremeditated and completely off the cuff.

Because of this rare ability, Uli has often been invited to spontaneous guest appearances with other artists, appearing and jamming several times with Deep Purple, The Smashing Pumpkins, Slash, Jack Bruce, Rick Wakeman, Michael Schenker, Paul Gilbert, Doro, Avantasia, Rachel Barton-Pine, Robbie Krieger, Leslie West, Gamma-Ray, Richie Kotzen, Angra, Gus G, UFO and many others.

Toseland, Skarlett Riot

JAMES TOSELAND began his full-time music career by collaborating with Little Angels legend Toby Jepson to write an album packed with hard/classic rock and power ballads. He’s used the grit, determination and will to succeed that made him a double world superbike champion to focus on pursuing his first passion in life: music.

Toseland’s first three releases, from the album ‘Renegade’, (‘Life Is Beautiful’, ‘Crash Landing’ and ‘Renegade’) all made it on to the A list on national radio stations and the album has received outstanding reviews.

Being invited to Play ‘Download Festival’, as well as being the opening act for ‘The Darkness’ and ‘Little Angels’ provided an incredible kick start to the band’s career.

UK headline tours followed, along with special guest slots with ‘Status Quo’ and ‘Reef’, ‘Calling Festival’ with ‘Aerosmith’ and various appearances in Europe.

High energy ROCKING show, highly recommended!

Inglorious, Wayward Sons

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…

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!

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 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…
