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!

Lion Papers, The Receivers, Fossa!, Mice On Mars

Two best mates, Curtis & Jimmy, have been in bands together for over five years from playing small school concerts, to big 1000 capacity venues. The boys of LION PAPERS have experienced both sides of the performing world.

If you asked anyone that knew them, they would probably tell you how energetic they are when they perform, and how keen they are to make every single performance extra special.

With their line-up being different to other bands you may have seen before, they may just surprise you for the good. Quotes from their audiences include ‘they’re a breath of fresh air’ and ‘they’re something different, I’ve never seen anything like that before, but it works!’.

Yup, we agree – these shows are always busy!

Remode

Just can’t get enough Depeche Mode?

Even Johnny Cash and Marilyn Manson covered the most successful technopop group of all time. But who can play live, original versions apart from Depeche Mode themselves?

REMODE are one of Europe’s biggest Depeche shows and nothing else comes close to the power and passion of the boys from Basildon as this band from Bielefeld.

What started as a fan project for a single concert in January of 2006 has continuously developed. The reaction of the crowds to the band’s stage debut was so fantastic that the group decided to expand and perfect the Remode project.

Under the motto “the original is the holy grail” and a solid foundation of bass, guitar and drums, Remode quickly developed a loyal fan base that continues to grow.

This was just such a fantastic show this time last year; and you can expect all the hits again and more NEW LIFE // JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH // SEE YOU // THE MEANING OF LOVE // EVERYTHING COUNTS // PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE // MASTER AND SERVANT // PERSONAL JESUS // I FEEL YOU // DREAM ON // PRECIOUS oh the list just goes on and on… (!)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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…

Pulling heavily on 00’s indie (nothing wrong with that!) – Cribs, Bloc Party, Milburn and Arctic Monkeys with a nod to the 80’s in The Smiths, TELEVANGELISTS are a great reminder that sometimes really good things happen at school.

Touring with Honeyblood and Jacobins, as well as a previous Fibbs slot with Aloe Veras, has sharpened a proper riff machine, different and unique enough to demand your attention. Yeah, young and restless, we like this bunch…

The Receivers w/ special guests Vuromantics, Glass Traps, Foreign Lives

York-based quartet THE RECEIVERS, then. Indie rock music with hints of pop and psychedelia. The reviews are in and they’re all bloody good… “Equal parts 60’s troubadour, 90’s shoegaze and 00’s indie… true crowd-pleasers with a sound that could fill stadiums” – York Calling. “Incredible to think The Receivers have only been fully formed since December 2016 given how developed their sound is and how effortless their live shows are” – Circulation Magazine.

With very special guests the brand spanking new VUROMANTICS; only on the scene since March 2017 but have already released a debut E.P and been touring hard with regular dates in the North, South and ventures into Scotland & Wales.

Blending pop sensibilities with a passion for electronic music and funk groove to create a very modern take on retro ideas. With a summer release to come and new shows being announced all the time, it won’t be long before Vuromantics appear on your radar.

Exposed Magazine – “shimmering synth textures and giant choruses”

Reyt Good Music Magazine – “one sleekly bombastic anthem after another, baiting the crowd into a frenzy”

York Calling – “pure party songs about love’s power sung with the conviction and charm of a gospel preacher”

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.

For fans of Alabama 3, Quireboys, Faces, MC5, Stones & Stooges…

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.

Tickets will be available for purchase on 23 June from Music Glue.

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.”

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!”

UK Foo Fighters

“Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome … Me!” – Dave Grohl

Not many tribute bands get invited on stage to perform with their heroes; and NEVER with one of the biggest rock bands in the world.

UK FOO FIGHTERS TRIBUTE frontman ‘Jay Apperley’ made history in September 2014 at Brighton’s Concorde 2 when he was personally asked on stage by none other than ‘Dave Grohl’ himself to perform ‘White Limo’ with the actual Foo Fighters!

“That was awesome!” – Dave Grohl

(See Dave’s dedication here)

Fans of the UK version have known for years, of course, that rarely has a tribute been performed with such obvious love and passion for the music; and lookalike and soundalike Jay Apperley becomes rock legend ‘Dave Grohl’ both vocally and slinging a guitar.

Their hugely successful UK tour ‘Sonic Motorways’ – a name cleverly derived from the title of the Foo’s new album, saw them sell out shows in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and many more as fans flocked in their thousands to see them last year.

Piling through hit after hit, the band perform set lists containing all the classics – such as ‘Everlong’ and ‘Best of You’ alongside brand new material from the Foo’s new album ‘Sonic Highways’ like ‘Something From Nothing’ and ‘Congregation’.  They absolutely nail the true vibe of a Foo’s live experience, playing all the singles with extra parts and the sing-alongs bits as well.

All performed down to the closest detail making it a truly unmissable show for any Foo Fighters fan.

Always an amazing show here – be sure to catch them live in 2017!

Delicate, emotional, powerful songs, delivered beautifully from the minds of two incredible songwriters. MEADOWLARK‘s spine tingling live performances are umissable.

Heavy UK touring commenced in 2016 Meadowlark alongside the release of 2nd EP ‘Paraffin’, and then later with their incredibly well received most recent single ‘Headlights’. Alongside this the band had another successful festival season which we are excited to build upon in 2017.

Their summer Bushstock performance received a glowing review from Popped Music who said “their vocals never ever miss a note and you could hear a pin drop”.

With their debut album set for release later this year through Believe Records campaign, 2017 is already shaping up to be the best yet for Meadowlark.

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 UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS SHOW HAS MOVED TO FRIDAY OCTOBER 13. ALL TICKETS ARE STILL VALID!

For those about to rock… we salute you. 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!

“The real deal” – Malcolm Young

“The heart and soul of AC/DC” – Eric Singer (Kiss)

“AC/DC were my absolute heroes because they are simple and easy to copy. Though soon you find they are not so easy to copy” – Christoph Schneider (Rammstein)

Over to the man himself, “My hell raising days are over and I see a psychiatrist every week and I’m  closer than ever to my children. I still have all my flash cars but now I want to grow chillies”.

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…

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!

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?

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.

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…

DJ Format & Abdominal

Soulful, funk-fuelled hip hop packed with infectious beats and lyrical dexterity, DJ FORMAT’s debut album “Music For The Mature B-Boy” was one of the slowburn success stories of 2003 and one of the most successful debut artist albums from the UK alternative/urban scene.

Drawing on ’80s & early ’90s hip hop and most music from the late ’60s & early ’70s of James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Ian Carr’s Nucleus, Soft Machine, Run Dmc, Beastie Boys, Juice Crew, BDP, Ultramagnetic Mc’s, DITC. Just to name a few.

And DJ FORMAT & ABDOMINAL just can’t stay away from touring the UK! After another incredibly successful tour earlier this year, the infamous hip hop duo head out once again to showcase their very first full-length album together, ‘Still Hungry’ – released in May and it saw the guys play live on BBC 6 Music with Lauren Laverne as well as London’s very own Soho Radio.

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.

The Southmartins

Forming The Beautiful South after The Housemartins in 1988, Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway went on to five million sales with a string of beautiful real-life vignettes and deservedly classic hits including Song For Whoever, You Keep It All In, A Little Time, Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, Perfect 10 and many many more.

Aided in no small way by a succession of brilliant female vocalists – Briana Corrigan, Jacqui Abbott and Alison Wheeler!

Ever sardonic and witty, the band split in 2007 due to ‘musical similarities’.

And, of course, this brilliant tribute includes Hull’s greatest gift to the world (LONDON 0 HULL 4!) The Housemartins with Happy Hour, Caravan Of Love, Five Get Over Excited, Build, Me And The Farmer etc

Welcome, then, THE SOUTHMARTINS. The UK’s leading tribute to the music and songs of The Beautiful South and The Housemartins. Just check out these FAN REVIEWS and you’ll see why loads of music fans agree with the man himself, Paul Heaton on Radio 2… “They’re very good!!”

Final word to the band, “We play songs by The Beautiful South and The Housemartins sometimes quite well. Paul Heaton says we’re “not too bad at all” apparently. We take that as high praise indeed. As you can see from our pics we’re not arsed about trying to look like the band and don’t do the “dressing up” thing. That’s fine for all the Freddies and Bongos out there just not for us. It doesn’t seem right. We just play the songs as if they were ours so we’re not afraid to play them fast and loose.”

Live/Wire – The AC/DC Show (7.45pm start!)

LIVE/WIRE – the ultimate AC/DC show! A unique six man tribute to rock music’s greatest band, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls and over two hours of high voltage rock ‘n’ roll.

And in this, AC/DC’s fortieth year, the band cover both eras with both ‘Bon Scott’ and ‘Brian Johnson’ present, taking you on the highway to hell for a night you’ll never forget…

And singer Pete also dons the flat cap as Geordie vocalist Brian Johnson to whom AC/DC turned to fill the void. And, of course, Brian’s searing vocals iced Back in Black, one of the best selling hard rock albums of all time!

The show is bang up to date with classic tracks across the back catalogue and also from Black Ice.

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.

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!”

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…

“WOW what a band, GREEN HAZE had it all, the sound, the look and bundles of enthusiasm. For two whole hours they smashed out hit after hit, hardly stopping to take breath!”

The songs of Green Day by true fans of Green Day, and with the same energy and passion – that’s what makes Green Haze THE next best thing to Billy Joe & co, one of the finest rock bands in the world.

Touring the length and breadth of the UK, Green Haze have rapidly become the UK’s most in-demand and booked Green Day tribute band of choice, playing to sell-out crowds at some of the biggest and most established venues and festivals, including Manchester Academy, BugJam Festival at The Santa Pod Raceway, The O2 Academies, Scala in London’s Kings Cross and The Brooklyn Bowl at The O2 Arena to name but a few.

Don’t take our word for it…

“Headliner Green Haze whipped the wild Saturday night funsters in to an uncontrollable frenzy, replicating the Green Day sound to such a tee that you’d have been hard pressed to differentiate between the originals and the covers. All of the band’s usual suspect punk hits were nailed with impeccable, high octane, relentless accuracy” – 365Bristol.com

“Green Haze played our Halloween Monsters Ball at The Manchester Academy and had over 1,000 people rocking with a Green Day show to remember, they are a truly authentic Green Day tribute band!” – Real Radio XS

All of Green Day’s albums are well represented from the first to present day, covering all of the hits like Basket Case, When I Come Around, American Idiot, Holiday, Wake Me Up When September Ends to name but a few. Plus an extensive repertoire of fan favourites to satisfy even the most ardent of Green Day fans.

Mason Hill + Deever (ex-Inglorious)

A mix of classic and modern, anthems and massive heavy riffs, spin the vid behind the pic and you’re in it.

The brainchild of former Inglorious guitarist Wil ‘Billy’ Taylor, DEEVER sees Billy step up to vocal duties and create musical alchemy with his friends Phil Appleton (bass), Dan ‘Higgy’ Higgins (drums) and Stevie Stoker (guitars).

As showcased on searing debut song FIRE AT WILL, the band serve up a heady onslaught of abrasive riffs, captivating hooks and instantly catchy melodies.

Directed by Samuel Andrew Fenton, alongside the band bashing out the anthem, the accompanying ultra-violent video sees a cloned Billy take a good pummelling from a mysterious shadowy figure.

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.

Electric Six – PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE!

Announcement from Dick Valentine

“Kate and I are expecting the arrival of our second kid in mid-to-late November and this of course makes it impossible for me to commit fully to the entirety of our UK/Europe tour at the end of the year, thusly, we are postponing the whole year-end tour a few months, into February and March of 2018.. We’re happy for us. You should be too. However if you are determined to take the low road here, to be obstinate, to be selfish, to refuse to accept that Electric Six will not be there for you this holiday
season as it has been for so many years….then I am willing to schedule a fight with you so this bullshit can be settled once and for all. Each fight will take place at a time and venue that is mutually agreed upon between us. Contact my FB page and we’ll set up the fight via personal message. We’ll set up a time and place and I will be there, buddy. I don’t care if you got a whip, I don’t care if you got a chain, I don’t care if you got a shotgun. Just so you know, my personal preference is to fight at Primark…it’s usually well-lit in there, and thusly, the fights are more fair”.

So there you have it; Electric Six has been put back to Feb 2018 and Dick Valentine is happy to fight you in Primark. All tickets remain valid!

Warning! Danger! High Voltage! They want to take you to a gay bar, gay bar, GAY BAR…

Back once more in York for your annual dose of the ELECTRIC SIX raucous, funny, slicked-back pop juggernaut. Utterly joyous.

And who the heck else other than Detroit’s Electric Six can write about their favourite cleaning fluid, the joys of being a graphic designer – or just Switzerland?

Dick Valentine’s genre-flipping Top 10 gatecrashers just wanna take you to a disco, synth pop, glam and arena rock heaven; and all wrapped up in macho flippancy and tongue-in-cheek pomposity so be warned … High Voltage!

Over to the band…

Mortality. It’s the primary reason we don’t live forever. If not for our mortality, the number of years each of us would have to roam this earth would be as infinite as the sands of time running through the earth itself. When extraterrestrials eventually make first contact with us within the next twenty years, the first glaringly obvious thing they will notice…is that we die. They will come to our planet with sinister intentions and they will immediately have the upper hand because we die…and they don’t. It’s a simple as that. And it’s all because of our mortality.

While aliens (and the government!!!!!) will always be there to kill us, we have for generations used our cold dead hands to clutch onto whatever silver lining we could sew into the dark cloud of our everlasting mortality. Specifically, we tell ourselves that we can live forever, not in corporeal form, but through our creations of art…and our expressions of love.

Thusly, art and love are more important than ever, because they are now the conduits that preserve our life forces. If you don’t create art and you don’t love nobody…well then, you will be forgotten, rather quickly. No one wants to be forgotten rather quickly. No one more so…than Electric Six.

Electric Six understands all this stuff as it prepares to unveil its eleventh studio album Bitch, Don’t Let Me Die!, which will be released on October 6 on Metropolis Records. The album is steeped in themes of mortality, death, discorporation and discoloration…all while it tries to convince you it is actually a work of art, a labour of love.

From the pounding, driving opener, “Drone Strikes”, through the 1970s guitar anthem “Two Dollar Two”, Bitch, Don’t Let Me Die! reveals that Electric Six knows that it is going to die, but will not go out quietly. From there, the album moves through the pop goodness of “Kids Are Evil” and “A Variation of Elaine”, the prog-rock showmanship of “Slow Motion Man”, and even a tribute to Elvis Presley in his more rotund years with “Dime Dime Penny Dime”.

“Big Red Arthur” is the anchor track of the album, as it emits a rock-opera bombast that is reminiscent of Radiohead sodomizing David Bowie in the center of his mind. It, like most of the songs on this record, is about death…but it’s kind of funny because it’s only about the death of a fake, out-of-shape drunk Santa Claus who is too fucking stupid to make it down the chimney correctly. In this case, we just end up laughing at death. And that’s uplifting.

To summarize, mortality is everywhere, and this fall, thanks to their new record Bitch, Don’t Let Me Die!, Electric Six will be everywhere too. Everybody gonna die someday, but with Electric Six’s new album, you no longer have to worry about any of it. Bitch, Don’t Let Me Die is Electric Six’s brand new record for 2015 and it is available on Metropolis Records on Oct. 2.

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.
