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.

Shining

Norwegian black-jazz pioneers SHINING have created their own unique and hardcore hybrid of jazz (BUT NO BORING NOODLING!!) and extreme metal.

But this isn’t the Swedish black metal band Shining, it is in fact is the band’s slightly crazier Norwegian doppelganger. A super-sized combo of electronic, industrial metal and noise music for fans of Ministry and Godflesh, fans unfazed by electronic, classical and jazz all thrown in the pile.

Like most industrial bands, you get that giant fuzzy crusher of a bass/guitar combo. It’s easy to draw comparisons with fellow saxophone slinging heavy hounds Ephel Duath, or kings of weird like Orthrelm, but other times the square and battering nature of high speed repetitive elements are more akin to what electronic bands like Squarepusher or Aphex Twin.

Produced and mixed by Sean Beavan and Tom Baker (both on Marilyn Manson / Nine Inch Nails / Slayer duties), check out the vid link of Trolltunga – a giant piece of rock poking out of a mountain at 700 metres. It’s pretty freakin’ metal… Shining frontman Jørgen Munkeby said, “The absolute craziest day of my life, and an experience that will be ingrained in my viking bones until I die!”.

Inspired by Norse mythology, doomsday cults and science fiction,harder and more intens

Norwegian black jazz then – metal meets jazz, at the very top of a weird pile. And no noodling…

This Feeling Alive: The Shimmer Band, Blinders, Bang Bang Romeo, Blackwaters

Pretty damn special four band bill! Brought to you by and Metropolis Music and THIS FEELING.

THE SHIMMER BAND are “rolling in with the museum of the travelling light, under the rusky dusky neon moon. Radiation in sight, music in flight, echoing around the vast desert… Interweaving skulls and worn out souls a mishmash of riffraff for as far as the brain can see. Come one come all and watch the tigers brawl, stealing honey and examining money and counting down the days till we are human again”… “We’re massive fans of Creation Records and basically every band involved with that label. The fuzz-drenched wall of noise of Jesus And Mary Chain…The multicoloured hazy pop of Super Furry Animals…The ever-evolving boundary-less rock n roll of Primal Scream…The unshakable belief and melody of Oasis”.

Three-piece punkadelic BLINDERS relocated to Manchester from Doncaster with their smeltingly loud and visceral political punk rock with enigmatic, psychedelic poetry and tones.

“Searing and soulful blues tinged Rock ‘n’ Roll” – NME; such are BANG BANG ROMEO, all atmospheric soundscapes punctuated with powerful, soulful vocal hooks taking the listener on a dark and emotive journey that has seen them labelled a “hard-edged Fleetwood Mac”

Punk rock from Guildford? Yeah, sounds OK to us… BLACKWATERS are influenced by Fidlar / Dead Kennedys / Clash / Jonathan Richman / John Cooper Clarke / Ramones and want you to “Come to our shows, hang out, av’ a beer etc.”

This is going to be v busy; early ticket purchase recommended!

Salad

SALAD have reformed and they’re playing the ’90s hits, plus a few new numbers too! Full electric and full band show, of course.

Formed ’92 in London by Marijne van der Vlugt, Paul Kennedy, Pete Brown and Rob Wakeman, they released three albums (2nd one ‘Drink Me’ debuting at No.16) and toured extensively, notably supporting Blur in 1994. The first two singles came out on their own Waldorf label with subsequent releases on Island.

And all Salad members are on board, including Charley Stone (who joined Salad in 1997), but sadly not drummer Rob (writer of Drink The Elixir), however he hopes to contribute a song or two for the new album in 2018.

Donald Ross Skinner (Julian Cope guitarist and producer of Salad’s last album Ice Cream, 1997), has joined the band on drums.

After three albums, six years and extensive touring, Salad split in 1998 to pursue other interests BUT have recently reformed (!) and we have a pretty exclusive warm-up show. Awesome…

Alabama 3 Acoustic

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?

Pretenders By Talk Of The Town, Simple Minded

We happen to think this is an ace double bill… PRETENDERS BY TALK OF THE TOWN are the UK’s only tribute playing the music of Chrissie Hynde & The Pretenders.

Hailing from Glasgow and covering the Pretenders back catalogue of hits throughout the 70s/80s, through to 2016 Album “Alone” and Chrissie’s solo album Stockholm, they also boast an original “Pretender” in keyboard player Rupert Black who recorded and toured the world with Chrissie playing Live Aid in 1985 at the JFK Stadium in Philadelphia!

SIMPLE MINDED, also from Glasgow, have captured the sound and energy that Jim Kerr & co. brought out during the ‘New Gold Dream’ and ‘Tour du Monde’ tours; earning praise from the likes of original bassist Derek Forbes and Simple Minds manager Bruce Findlay as well as fans all over the world. Original drummer Brian McGee has been known to jump up there as well! Check ’em out at LIVE at Hard Rock, Glasgow.

Coasts

On 18 August 2017, COASTS will release their eagerly anticipated new album ‘This Life’ via High Time Records. Available to pre-order worldwide from 23 June, this record is the follow up to their self-titled debut chart album in 2016.

Packed full of poppy hooks, rocky riffs and big choruses, ‘This Life’ is the product of 12-months intensive studio work by the band, recording in collaboration with producers Dan Bryer, who has worked with Rag ‘N’ Bone Man and Niall Horan, Tim Larcombe, who has produced Lana Del Rey, Halsey and The Hunna, and Duncan Mills, who has been credited on The Vaccines and Jake Bugg’s releases.

Forming in 2011 as students in Bristol, COASTS have established a huge fanbase that has seen the band sell out venues across the globe, as well as massive homecomings, including an unforgettable night at Camden’s Roundhouse last year. Having clocked up millions of streams, 130,000 Facebook likes and over 100,000 sales thanks to singles such as Modern Love, A Rush of Blood, and the BBC Radio 1 playlisted You and Oceans, COASTS career has taken them to the very top of the game, with appearances at major festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Lollapalooza.

Album opener Take Me Back Home instantly draws you in. The tight rhythm section, consisting of drummer Ben Street and bassist James Gamage, is complemented with finesse by guitarist Liam Willford and keyboardist David Goulbourn. With its powerful four-to-the-floor chorus, vocalist Chris Caines croons to the listener: “Take me back home, where the sky is glittering gold”, embodying the joys of the success the boys have had whilst touring the world.

‘This Life’ also explores themes of growing up and self-discovery. From falling in love on Heart Starts Beating, to feeling broken in the anthemic track Tomorrow, the release successfully portrays the expert songwriting ability the band has developed over time.

Following a sell-out UK club tour in May 2017, COASTS are touring the length and breadth of the UK in support of their new record. The 38-date tour will allow fans to get up close and personal to the band, as well as be some of the first people to experience the new material being performed live. The dates kick off on 15 September in Aberdeen, Scotland, come to London on 5 October, and conclude with a show on 29 October in Brighton, England.

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

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.

This is a very rare chance to meet three of the heroes of Istanbul all in one place, all in one night, and to be at a very special show where they’ll talk about the highs, lows and of course laughs of arguably the greatest night in LFC history – and the route they took to get there.

These nights are always well attended and great fun!

If Meet and Greet isn’t for you the general admission tickets are well worth the money too, and as well as being a great laugh listening to the players’ take on the game both now and then you get the chance to take part in auctions and raffles for some very special and rare sporting memorabilia.

The Peckham Cowboys, Atomic Raygun

Woozy, sleazy trash-blues and rock’n’roll! Broken-down stories of bad life choices and wicked women; chickenscratch riffs splashed with grimy dollops of horns…

Featuring Dale Hodgkinson & Marc Eden (Slash/DNA Doll), Nigel Mogg (Quireboys), Timo Kaltio (Cherry Bombz/Cheap n Nasty), Duncan Mackay (Primal Scream) & Ryan McCormick (Stacie Collins Band), THE PECKHAM COWBOYS may well be the hypodermic in the vein that British rock’n’roll needs.

But this ain’t no old through blues standards, there’s dubby voodoo rhythms, mystic vibes with a lovingly retro feel. And impeccably dressed.

The distortion that coated the band’s debut album, 2011’s ‘Flog It!’, has been washed away somewhat, but with cheap booze rather than soapy water.

The sound now is more Faces-esque and cool ’70s rock ‘n’ roll inspired, pretty much how you’d imagine it given the talent on show – singer Marc Eden could well have been fronting Velvet Revolver.

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…

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 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 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…
