Nothing But Thieves, Airways, Cortes – SOLD OUT!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles, Serotones, Violet Contours, Alleyways

Former and founding lead guitarist of Catfish and the Bottlemen, BILLY BIBBY is no newcomer to the UK scene having become the elder statesmen of Catfish, relentlessly gigging, building a fiercely loyal fan base, selling out increasingly larger venues, and ultimately securing a recording deal in 2013 that would lead to the release of a Top 10 gold debut album.

And Billy Bibby and his band are ready to do it all again…

Billy’s current musical journey began 2014 in the same, grass roots, DIY style that served him well in the past. Penning new tunes and trialling them live and on SoundCloud – to overwhelmingly positive feedback.

The time was right to get a full band going and, with the help of Verve bassist Simon Jones, recruited Rob Jones (guitar/vocals), Matt Thomas (bass/vocals0 and Mike Pearce (drums).

Since the first single ‘Waitin’ for You’ and debuting live in 2015 it’s been nonstop with a debut EP ‘Bide Your Time’, follow-up single ‘Are You Ready?’, radio play (Radio X, BBC Introducing, Virgin Radio, Amazing Radio) and yet more gigging.

Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles are winning – time to catch up!

Jack Savoretti, Georgie (SOLD OUT)

Straight off a sold-out tour of massive theatres and venues, JACK SAVORETTI is back at Fibbers for an intimate one-off – and we’re super-pleased!!

Top 10 album and sold-out worldwide tour later, 2015’s Written In Scars album made Jack a star.

And now it’s follow-up Sleep No More has sent him stratospheric. Def not a Clinton’s Cards/Milk Tray love letter it’s an impressive songwriting achievement about the very real struggles of holding on to love against the odds. About the trouble, the turmoil and the ultimate realisation that you can’t fight the battles life throws you on your own.

And Jack and his band are growing in adventure. Our hero may have started as a lonely acoustic troubadour, relying on not much more than his songs and that careworn growl, but we’re now witnessing a a gorgeous widescreen sweep, drawing on a rich Italian heritage, with Morricone-like flourishes and battlefield last stands.

Savoretti’s paternal grandfather was a revered partisan who liberated WW2 Genoa from the fascists, while his mother’s father was a refugee fighting through war-torn Europe to eventually raise a family in the UK. And Jack concedes that hearing tales of his family’s heroism shaped his own stories as a songwriter.

A class act, a modern-day troubadour, a thrilling performer, a giant. We are so THRILLED to get Jack to York again, and in such an intimate setting.

All-girl garage THE FRANKLYS, then… “Like The Hives, but with better hair and make-up” – XFM. Half-Swedish half-UK buzzsaw Led Zeppelin-Blondie-QOTSA punk-pop-rock-madness coming to trash a PA near you.

It’s rock ‘n’ roll, it’s surf, it’s garage punk, it’s a thing that hits you between the eyes and between everything else. Showing the ‘lads’ the way to go… give ’em flak and you’ll get a good old two-fingered salute.

“Classic old school rock, riotous girl rebellion and above all, this is frankly something you should be getting yourself some of” – Shindig!

With extensive touring across both the UK, Europe and America, including Isle of Wight, Download Festival and Camden Rocks, The Franklys are surely making themselves known as one of the most exciting new live acts on the UK band circuit.

Joe Purdy, Lydia Rose, Boss Caine, Amy Humphrys

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

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

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

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

Goldray w/ Kenwyn House (Reef), Aloe Veras

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

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

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

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

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

Elvana: Elvis-fronted Nirvana, Flatcap Carnival

ELVANA – THE WORLD’S FINEST ELVIS-FRONTED TRIBUTE TO NIRVANA! Smells like cheeseburgers and teen spirit, daddy-o…

From the bowels of Disgraceland, rock ‘n’ roll icons of the afterlife are raised from the dead!

Rock ‘n’ roll meets grunge as Elvis fronts Nirvana and gives the band the front man it’s been missing since ’94.

Elvana tear through Nirvana’s catalogue whilst splicing in grunged-up sections of the king of rock ‘n’ rolls finest moments, culminating in an audible orgasm of overdrive and old school rockabilly.

Elvana’s short lifetime has already seen them support NYC titans ‘Tragedy: A Heavy Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees’, Drive Thru-Metal’s finest – LA’s ‘Mac Sabbath,’ as well as tearing up venues throughout the UK.

“Elvana – they’re as awesome as they sound.” – the Clown, Mac Sabbath

Bassmentality Presents: Mr Traumatik, Hypho & Residents

Bassmentality return with their final party of the season. A summer special featuring one of those MC’s York’s been asking us for for YEARS.

Welsh phenomenon Traumatik rose to prominence in 2013 with his unique style of drum n bass / bassline. His tracks have amassed millions of views combined on YouTube which has propelled him to being one of the most popular MC’s amongst York’s rave population; as well as seeing him play sets at some of the biggest raves and festivals all over the world.

Hypho trades off brazen grime stylings, lush garage interludes and dubbed out bass riddims with fearsome snatches of ragga energy. An incredibly prolific producer who’s still in his early 20s. ”Twenty-one-year-old Manchester based producer Hypho seems to have an inexhaustible production line of booming riddims up his sleeve” – DJMag.

Bassmentality Residents and Co partners, the duo have been watched closely by Chase & Status’ label MTA record as well as attaining great stature in Hospitality’s publishing team, “Sounds in the Key of knife”. Supporting the sounds of IVY LABs 20/20ldn label through to the brash floor killers of Hedex and Macky Gee – expect Jump Up!

Northern DJ and Bassline fanatic Conor MacLaren has touched down on most of yorkshires underground scenes, playing anything from tech house through to disgusting bass heavy bangers. He has been recognized as one of the York elite when it comes to mashing up tracks.

Rixxy is a new addition to the rotating Bassmetality roster. Young at heart but flavoursome on the decks, he’s impressed heavily with his first few sets; seamlessly switching between grime classics and the bassline bangers we all love.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All’s well that ends well.

Giant Glenn is leaving the building”.

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

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!

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… (!)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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…

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 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…

Original and legendary front man, Bon Scott, was a wild man of rock and roll, whose untimely death shocked the world in 1980 – at a time when the band first sampled global success.

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.

A fantastic two hours of duck-walking, bedevilled rock and roll!!

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!”

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” –

“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.

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.
