Molotov Jukebox, Oh My God! It’s The Church, Vox Cornelious

English actress Natalia Tena has been making a name on screen in franchises such as Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, but with Sam Apley, Adam Burke, Tom Wilson, Angus Moncrieff and Rami Sherrington she’s fronting an entirely different, funky, vibrant, gypsy and romance-fuelled suffrage.

MOLOTOV JUKEBOX are like a ferocious fire-bomb lobbed in to the empty and dull rooms of pallid pop and whitewashed indie. In short, they’ll blow your bloody doors off with foot-stamping insurrection, jigs and dances, colour and vibe.

Ladies and gents, no need to feed the slots and press A1 – here is a jukebox that will satisfy long after the last note.

Martha Reeves & The Vandellas

1962 and Motown A&R first heard the voice that would become known as “the sound of young America.” A young jazz/blues singer, Martha Lavaille was slaying audiences at Detroit’s famed 20 Grand Nightclub and she was invited her to audition at Hitsville, USA.

Within a year, Martha had taken the reigns of the A&R department, making friends and noticing that musicians showed up on time and got paid. She watched, learned, and whenever she could, sang. And everyone took notice… When Mary Wells couldn’t make a session, Martha was called to the mic. With her group, the Del Phi’s, she recorded “I’ll Have to Let Him Go,” and Martha and the Vandellas was born.

The song was rather forgettable, but Reeves’ sound wasn’t. While waiting for her first hit, Martha (along with Rosalind Ashford and Annette Beard) backed Marvin Gaye on his first three releases and sang with him on stage. Soon, however, they emerged from the shadows with “Come and Get These Memories,” followed by an enviable string of hits: “Heat Wave,” “Quicksand,” “In My Lonely Room,” “Nowhere to Run,” “My Baby Loves Me,”, “Love Makes Me Do Foolish Things,” “I’m Ready For Love,” “Jimmy Mack,” and, of course, the Motown anthem, “Dancing In The Street.”

After leaving Motown in 1972, Martha continued to expand her musical horizons, establishing herself as a singer-songwriter with few limitations. She sang rock, jazz, country, gospel, blues and classical. Her singing companions included everyone from the Godfather James Brown and the Boss Bruce Springsteen to opera diva Beverly Sills and gospel king Rance Allen. She headlined a national touring company of the musical “Ain’t Misbehaving,” and for three years toured the UK in the musical review “Dancing In The Street.”

Martha Reeves continues to thrill audiences around the world, and we welcome her back to York!

King No-One

There’s good reason why folk are regularly cramming into the live music quarters of the UK to be enthralled by four dynamic, fresh musicians.
Hailing from the northern heights of England, KING NO-ONE have been blowing away audiences the length and breadth of the UK on their debut tour, with several venues selling out. Having previously supported Embrace on two sold out UK Academy tours the band also performed at a multitude of festivals including Reading and Leeds. Explosive maximum capacity performances at The Great Escape (BBC Introducing showcase), Live at Leeds and Dot-to-Dot have further enhanced their live reputation as an exciting band in demand from industry and public alike.
An ever-growing radio DJ fanbase has led to heavy radio support from Huw Stephens (BBC Radio1), Steve Lamacq (6 Music), Dermot O’Leary (BBC Radio2), Dan O’Connell (Radio X), Tom Robinson and Chris Hawkins (6 Music) as well as their videos gaining national TV exposure on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch. “Constellations” was also added to Radio 1’s Best of BBC Introducing list for 2015.
The weighty intellect and undeniable charm of this group is bringing a rush of excitement to all who make contact with their infectiously stirring opus. Music blogs have swerved towards their emerging online presence, which recently saw the band hit top 3 spots on Hype Machine with “Foreign Tongue”, “Constellations” and “Stay Close”
After relentlessly working the gig circuit King No-One are the “must see” live act of 2016.

King No-One are:
Zach Lount – Lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Joe Martin – backing vocals, lead guitar
Alex Townsley – backing vocals, bass
James Basille – backing vocals, drums

The Bastard Sons, River City Ransom, Cavorts, Mercury Killed Newton

BAS-TARD. Something that is of irregular, sick inferior, mind or dubious origin…

Not so much begat as taken roughly from behind, THE BASTARD SONS are bad medicine, buggering you brainless and no reach around. Take your daily dose and shut the f**k up, it’s good for you. No spoonful of sugar.

And in frontman JJ there dwells some sort of wild beast; a mountain man, a bourbon brute. SOMEONE. WHO. SHOULD. NOT. BE. F**KED. WITH.

They’ll kick your sorry ass. They’ll hurt your ears. They’ll rock your tiny little world and make your cousin your lover. They are quite simply the most excruciatingly exciting band you’re going to squeeze down your throat …

And look who is making a ONE-OFF appearance … THE LEGENDARY RIVER CITY RANSOM. Worth the price of admission alone, as they say.

Annual Boss Caine Festive Fundraiser w/ (running order tbc) Boss Caine, The Howl & The Hum, Naked 6, Bull & guest DJs

Hard to believe that an idea for late 2001 by Dan Lucas aka Boss Caine would rumble on through the years, all the while gathering money for folks less fortunate than the rest of us. In the early days, our hero and chums would make a heap of the winnings and head to the nearest friendly grocer for cans of comestibles to distribute at a time when people are most in need.

And it is still thus, your attendance and a crisp rubbery fiver are the only requests from tonight’s minstrels, all giving their time and taxi money to give us humble sinners a ‘good time’. And all for the benefit of YORK MIND!!

You don’t need me to tell you about BOSS CAINE, suffice to say that our King Of Coffin Country will one day conquer the world, if not the planet’s gin warehouses, with his own inimitable grave and gravel delivery.

Running order has not been decided but the principal contenders are as follows:

THE HOWL AND THE HUM, led by the stellar songwriting and sublime delivery talents of Sam Griffiths. Taking Sam’s classic songwriting and raising it to future festival headliner rock and roll levels are scene stalwarts Bradley Blackwell with Bradley Blackwell, Conor Hirons & Laurie Caldwell in attendance.

NAKED SIX always make a bit of a fuss when playing at Fibbs – we can’t believe just how damn good they are. Pop along and experience that feeling of socks being removed by a strong and unexpected wind. We love them.

And how about this, reappearing at Fibbers one of the best York bands to disturb the peace; indeed several years ago we were one of the first to say, “If BULL had been around in 2006, they’d already have a tour bus and a million quid record company advance – such is the strength of their songs”. This still holds true, as many of you can attest.

In between all the noisy guitars, we are promised DJs. Not the usual laptop drum and bass on loop nonsense but proper tunes that musicians wrote, not computers and calculators.

All in all it promises to be a bit old school, y’know when TONS of people went to live gigs and had a fine time all round.

Tickets available online, from the venue, from the artists, from the milkman and probably from Jeremy Corbyn because we all know Dan Lucas can get where water can’t. And to quote the man, “See you at the bar!”.

Native City, Two Reasons Why, Pura Vida, Luke Pierce

NATIVE CITY burst onto the music scene earlier this year, born out of successful Selby rock band Premonition.

The addition of rhythm guitarist Jack Randles to the already established talents of frontman Robbie Cliff, lead guitarist Ryan Mellor-Davis, bassist Richy Jones and drummer Max Shaw saw the band take a new direction with a greater leaning more towards catchy pop tunes.

The new-look band have already laid down three tracks at Czar Street Studios at Old Chapel in Leeds, two of which have been mixed and mastered in New York by producer Jeffery Lackscheide. The first track Tomorrow has received radio airplay with For The Record set to follow shortly.

Having played two storming gigs at Fibbers before under their old name the new Native City set is eagerly anticipated with new songs and some great covers.

Devil You Know feat. Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage), Oni, Wearing Scars, Brutai

Face-melting metal taking you back to how it used to be; DEVIL YOU KNOW are simplicity and brutality in a beautiful blend. No intricate backing tracks or crazy tempos just super heavy riffs, killer blast beats, and Jones’ signature screams.

This is one helluva USA metalcore supergroup featuring Howard Jones on vocals (Ex-Killswitch Engage, Blood Has Been Shed), guitarist Francesco Artusato (All Shall Perish) and Ryan Wombacher (Bleeding Through) on bass – signed to Nuclear Blast Records with two albums out – The Beauty of Destruction and They Bleed Red (produced by ex-Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader (Gojira, Five Finger Death Punch).

And check out the rest of this amazing bill…

ONI – are the strange, straightforward prog-metal band you need in your life; they’re even from the Cayman Islands, how much more exotic can you get. In Japanese folklore, the Oni is a malevolent shapeshifting demon. At Fibbers we’ll settle for armour-plated melodic metal, ta. Check out Eternal Recurrence here!

WEARING SCARS and BRUTAI complete a classic line-up.

If you’re going to pay tribute to The Thin White Duke, you may as well get the best one around. ABSOLUTE BOWIE have been touring the UK & Europe for years, consistently selling out venues and we don’t expect this show to be any different AND THEIR LAST SHOW WAS PACKED…

Woody Woodmansey (Spiders from Mars) said, “Absolutely wicked. As one who was there, watching AB put me back there again. For anyone who missed it or fans who want to relive it I definitely recommend it. As close to the real thing that you’ll get. Enjoy.”

You’ll be taken from A to Z (Absolute Beginners to Ziggy!) with Station to Station in between. Costume changes, all the best bits you remember from Brixton’s David Robert Jones; unquestionably one of the finest contemporary artistes of our times – we will never see his like again.

There’s two types of people in this world: Those who like Johnny Cash and those that don’t know a damn thing about music.

CASH, featuring the rich and gruff baritone of Ben Welburn, have recreated the sound, vibe and appeal of the master himself. Ex-farm boy Ben Welburn came across JR through musical parents and freely admits to a lightbulb moment and identifying with his outlaw approach to life.

The Man In Black, one of the most influential musicians of the last century spanning country, rockabilly, blues, gospel, folk and rock ‘n’ roll. That deep baritone, the chick-a-boom of The Tennessee Three, the surly guitar twang of Carl Perkins, the ground-breaking prison shows and all the battles with alcohol and drugs … its all there in a great survivor’s story, book-ended of course by the unbelievable sessions with Rick Rubin.

“The last time CASH played London with us, BBC 6Music’s Huey Morgan personally asked for the support slot – it doesn’t get much better than that!” – Jon Wing (02 Academy Events Promoter).

“Without a doubt, CASH are one of the most authentic and skiiled tribute bands we have worked with and we look forward to booking them again in the near future.” – Alan Mcleod (promoter – Shetland).
“The CASH band are 12 Bar favourites. When they play, you close your eyes and you feel like you’re at a real Johnny Cash concert – I’m forever being asked when they’re coming back.” – Barnet Mark (promoter/manager of The 12 Bar, London)

“I don’t like country music. The chords are too clean and the lyrics are too darn obvious. With this mindset I was dragged to see a Johnny Cash tribute band (and I don’t like tribute bands). Then they started to play… Never did I get hooked on an act so fast, which by right should have caused a severe allergic reaction. Fun, kicking and above all unpretentious – thank you, CASH!” – Yak Bondy (songwriter/producer).

Cash was born … they walk the line.

Rick Witter & Paul Banks (Shed Seven) – an Independent Venue Week show

Fresh from yet another year of sold-out shows, and long after the NME darlings have faded away, the mighty SHED SEVEN are still packing huge venues UK-wide, and why ever not. Since when did bloody great big tunes, consummate musicianship and fabulous shows ever go out of fashion…

And so we welcome the thinnest man in pop with the biggest voice and the warmest personality, Mr Rick Witter; the witty and urbane frontman of a band that, lest we forget, in their time rivalled Oasis for Top 20 hits.

Joined here this evening by partner-in-crime, the brilliant guitarist and eloquent songwriter Paul Banks, an electrifying showman in his own right and a player with an instantly recognisable style and sound.

And check out these amazing pics from last year’s show…

So what’s all this about INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK, then? Small venues are the bedrock of the live music industry and without them new acts would have nowhere to play and learn their trade. Fibbers has been performing this service since 1992, hosting some of the world’s biggest bands on their first tours – and some of them even come back and repay the favour! Which is where the Shed Seven boys come in…

It’s a whites-of-their-eyes show and you already know it’s going to sell out so don’t get bothered with last year’s unholy scramble for tickets and purchase early for a holleralong to some of the best anthems EVER.

An Evening With Liverpool Legend Jamie Carragher – SOLD OUT!

5Times are bringing Carra to York! Your chance to shake hands with one of the heroes of Istanbul!!

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher dedicated his whole career to the Reds, making his debut in 1997 and finally bowing out over sixteen years later.

By then he had 737 appearances to his name and a string of trophies including two FA Cups, three League Cups, a UEFA Cup and of course the big one – the Champions League, won on that unforgettable night when Liverpool “won it five times” at the Ataturk in 2005.

Carra will be in York Fibbers to talk not only about his Anfield career but also about current events at Liverpool and in the football world, all told in his hilarious yet disarmingly honest style. There’s a good chance there’ll be a few stories thrown in you wouldn’t hear elsewhere!

Meet and Greet tickets give you the chance to shake hands with the man himself and to bring along one item to have personally signed. Included in the Meet and Greet ticket price is a snap of you taken alongside Carra by our professional photographer, with a link to download the image available shortly afterwards.

General admission tickets are well worth the money and as well as being a great laugh listening to Jamie’s take on the game you get the chance to take part in auctions and raffles for some very special and rare sporting memorabilia. It’s a night you won’t forget.

The Turnpike Troubadors

THE TURNPIKE TROUBADORS first UK tour after developing a huge US fanbase, their most album recent hitting No.3 (Billboard Country Chart).

When the Turnpike Troubadours are playing in a town Stateside, you’ll know it. A block or two from the venue, you’ll see the crowds lining up. Get closer and you’ll start to hear the music – rockin’ hard, lashed by burnin’ fiddle and guitar, maybe a little rough on the edges but with a deep-rooted soul that’s impossible to resist.

And if you make it through the door, you’ll witness one of the best shows you’ll ever see.

Audiences in their home state of Oklahoma and down in Texas have known this for years. It’s no longer news when they draw 5,000-plus at Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, sell out three nights in a row at Gruene Hall or turn several hundred away at the Legendary Stubb’s Bar-B-Q in Austin.

Word has spread, though: Their shows in Chicago, St. Louis and elsewhere have pulled in more than 1,000 fans. And they’ve drawn full houses at Joe’s Pub in New York and The Troubadour in L.A., among many other venues coast to coast.

They’ve even been picked by Playboy as one of three acts to watch in 2015 – a distinction lead singer / guitarist / songwriter Evan Felker admits is “pretty bizarre” but impressive nonetheless.

So is that the story? “The Turnpike Troubadours Tear It Up Night After Night”?

Actually, no. There’s another side to singer/guitarist Felker, bassist RC Edwards, fiddler Kyle Nix, steel and electric guitarist Ryan Engleman and drummer Gabe Pearson. Maybe you don’t notice it as much at their shows, where their blazing performances tend to obliterate detached reflection.

“The show is about people having fun,” Felker says. “The more fun they have, the more fun we have and the better off everybody is. The record is about understanding the poetry in a real way. I figure it’s like people sitting around in their house, maybe drinking a beer. That’s more the place for poetry.”

“Our sound comes from playing country music, punk rock and anything else we liked in honky-tonks and beer joints,” Edwards adds. “You’ve got to give the crowd something to dance to and have a good time. But songwriters are the most important thing. So I think everything we’ve done says that you can have it both ways.”

The proof is on The Turnpike Troubadours and at whatever place they’re playing down the road near you. Think of them as a two-headed silver dollar; on both sides, you’ve got a winner.

Skindred, Raging Speedhorn, RSJ

SKINDRED are the ultimate soundclash… tough and infectious metal riffage colliding with the biggest, phattest hip hop and reggae grooves, cutting edge electronics and pop sensibility.

An utterly unique band of disparate musical elements melding explosions of energy and cross-culture fervour; rightly earning them a worldwide reputation for uniting people and making every last one of them tear up the dancefloor with a giant shit-eating grin! Yup, guaranteed to encourage even the most curmudgeonly music fans to bellow along, Skindred are the ultimate thinking man’s party band.

Widely acknowledged as one of the most devastating and exciting live acts on the planet, over the course of four universally praised studio albums – Babylon (2002), Roots Rock Riot (2007), Shark Bites And Dog Fights (2009) and Union Black (2011) – the Newport destroyers have been a force for invention and positivity since 1998 when they emerged from the ashes of Benji’s former band Dub War.

And with the release of 5th studio album Kill The Power, Benji Webbe and his loyal henchmen Dan Pugsley (bass), Mikey Demus (guitar), Arya Goggins (drums) and new addition Dan Sturgess (DJ/keys/electronics) hit the UK album chart for the first time peaking at number 28.

The music world may be in a permanent state of panic and flux, but one basic principle of rock’n’roll remains true: the key to longevity is delivering the goods. No band has better encapsulated this ethos of integrity and determination over the last decade than Skindred.

Benjii Webbi is a man of insane energy, seemingly on the increase with every album, “The world’s getting worse so how can I get more mellow?” he laughs. “Of course I’m getting angrier! People normally stay in a bag when it comes to lyrics. Stephen King stays with horror and he’s brilliant at it, you know? With Skindred, it’s always about encouraging an uplift. It’s about a sense of unity. Lyrics can change people’s lives, you know? You can be going down one road and hear a song and have a Road To Damascus experience and become someone else”.

“We’re a global band. We’ve played in Colombia and India and everywhere and it’s the same energy”, Benji concludes. “I get letters from people in Hawaii and people in Turkey. It’s all the same. We resonate globally and it’s the greatest thing ever. It seems funny to us sometimes because we’re always kicking each other’s heads in and saying ‘You’re a wanker!’ to each other before we go on stage, but as soon as it’s time to play the show the oneness this band creates together and the unity we bring is unique. I’ve never experienced anything like it and we can’t wait to get back on the road and do it all again”.

Anyone ever witnessing a Skindred show will confirm it’s impossible not to get fired up and drawn in to joyous abandon, and with a new album in the pipeline set for release later this year primed and ready, the best live band on the planet simply cannot fail to conquer the entire world this time round.

Wherever and whoever you are, Skindred are coming. Open your ears and get your dancing feet ready. You know this show is going to sell out sharpish… ON SALE FRIDAY 10am!!

New single ‘Will You Be There?’ has been on rotation with Annie Mac and Steve Lamacq. Head of BBC Radio 1, George Ergatoudis – “This band have got it. LOVE this track”.

“It’s basically about the notion of when you’re doing well and everybody wants to know you and cling on to you,” drummer Brandon Cook says. “As opposed to when you’re going through a rough time and most people jump off board and forget you. Who will be the ones still with you because they truly believe in what you’re doing as much as you? ‘Will You Be There?’ seemed like the title to sum the whole meaning up really.”

Dub Pistols – 20th Anniversary Tour!

Over an 18-year career the DUB PISTOLS have worked with legends like Rodney P, Busta Rhymes, Gregory Isaacs, Terry Hall, Lindy Layton, Akala and Horace Andy; while the band’s mainstays are fiercely loyal and dedicated. An unorthodox collective of musicians who each have their own personal interests and solo projects, when they come together to form the Dub Pistols some dubwise magic happens. 

They’ve burned through different members and hundreds of thousands of pounds on assorted capers and hedonism and it should have been a recipe for oblivion, but the band that started out in the mid-90s with Barry DJ’ing while musicians jammed over the top has metamorphosed into a mighty reggaematic bass-driven live machine, a super-tight festival regular that keeps winning over new fans at Glastonbury, Bestival, Beat-Herder and across Europe.

As they gear up to celebrate 20 years of riotous marauding, the Dub Pistols are prepping their seventh as-yet-untitled album in 2017 and there’ll be a documentary about the band dropping at some point in the year, too. And they’ll be out on the road, as usual, of course — the hardest working band in showbiz.

“The next album is actually a bit more chilled-out than the last two,” says Barry. “It’s still a classic Dub Pistols album, but ‘Return Of The Pistoleros’ and ‘Worshipping The Dollar’ were more club-orientated — leaning more towards peak-time bangers. This album is a bit more relaxed, with a smoked-out reggae vibe — although there are still a couple of bangers on there.”

A kinda 21st century equivalent of 2-Tone acts The Specials or The Beat, the Dub Pistols are the quintessential festival band. Coming over a bit like if King Tubby and The Skatalites bumped into Terry Hall at a Goldie gig, the Dubs have reached their two decade milestone with a lot of ups and downs along the way – ALWAYS A BRILLIANT NIGHT!!

Welcome, folks, to Janis Joplin meets Tina Turner, all blustery vocals and emotionally-charged performances, a red-hot blues mama who rconnects with and inspires her audiences, leaving a lasting impression that’s larger than life itself.

Coming to light after several years of US/Europe touring with blues legend, Joe Louis Walker and renowned guitarist, Popa Chubby and now inducted in to the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

At times with her dark version of Black Betty, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds come to mind, Elkie Brooks at other times. And she can REALLY let go and rock as good as anyone with her take on Zeppelin…

Sari Schorr’s Manhaton Records debut, A Force of Nature, has been described as, “A hailstorm of an album sure to go down in blues history” by Blues Rock Review. Maximum Volume Music has given the album a 10/10 and exclaims, “The quality of the record frequently touches jaw-dropping. Sari Schorr & the Engine Room have just made one of the blues records of the year.”

A Force of Nature is produced by iconic blues pioneer Mike Vernon, whose credits include Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall & the Blues Breakers, David Bowie, Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack, Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Christine McVie and Ten Years After. The critically acclaimed album features her stunning guitarists Innes Sibun (ex Robert Plant), Walter Trout, Oli Brown (RavenEye) and keyboardist John Baggott (Massive Attack, Portishead).

Sari’s new band, The Engine Room, features stunning British guitarist Innes Sibun (former Robert Plant guitarist). “The Engine Room truly is a remarkable band,” says Sari. “Something magical happens when we’re on stage together. We’re fuelled further by the audiences’ reaction and everything’s possible. I love touring and enjoy the privilege of meeting so many like-minded people who share our love of the Blues.”

Longtime Sabb fans were BLOWN AWAY when this trib appeared last time, “The guitarist and singer have it absolutely nailed” / “Reminded me of seeing them first time around” / “Amazing booking, best tribute I’ve seen for years!”

The wind, the rain, the tolling bell, THAT RIFF – Track 1 Side 1 of the album generally acknowledged as the birth of heavy metal as we know it – and still more powerful than anything churned out by many of today’s overproduced ‘metal’ bands.

And so we welcome SACK SABBATH the UK’s most popular and established tribute to the Birmingham boys, Osbourne, Iommi, Ward and Butler.

Fronted by best Ozzy impersonator in the business, and check out this recommendation from of one of the actual Black Sabbath road crew …

“I worked for the real Sabbath and they are like the real thing, you don’t have to close your eyes, because their Ozzy has got it off to a tee. I go to their shows because it reminds me of all the fun I had with the real thing. A great night out, we love you all!” – Les Martin Stage & Production Manager, Black Sabbath 1970-78.

The Quireboys

With a sound that harks back to the 70’s heyday of The Faces, Stones, Slade and Mott The Hoople, THE QUIREBOYS have always remained true to their roots from the start. The boys’ mission is simply to keep the spirit of good time rock ‘n’ roll alive and kicking into the 21st century.

So… there’s a neat bourbon in your glass, a good woman on your arm and a long night of hard partying ahead. All you need is the band. And for those seeking a group of true Brit troubadours, capable of crafting the quintessential bar room experience with arena-style style hooks, look no further. Over 30 years and The Quireboys know how to keep the party going with no plans of stopping it anytime soon !!!

And with latest album, Twisted Love, is the sound of a band that’s been there, done that and bought the T-shirt – the torn and faded favourite with hundreds of tour dates on both sides of the Atlantic plastered across the back. “I don’t think there’s a harder working band out there,” concluded Spike. “And I’m proud of that. A record like Twisted Love doesn’t happen by chance. It happens because this band plays so many shows, spends so much time together and is incredibly tight – as songwriters and performers. There’s a song we recorded in Sweden that didn’t actually make the cut this time called Win Some Lose Some. That’s The Quireboys for you. And we’re all the better for it.”

See you at the front for good old rock ‘n’ roll!

While She Sleeps

Sheffield metalcore band WHILE SHE SLEEPS formed 2006 with vocalist Lawrence Taylor, guitarists Sean Long and Mat Welsh, bassist Aaran McKenzie and drummer Adam Savage.

Since the release of 2010 mini-album, ‘The North Stands For Nothing’, the band has been on a trailblazing path to become one of the fastest rising acts on the UK hard rock and metal circuits for some years.

From a sold out headline tour, their tent-swelling set at Sonisphere festival, venues on the prestigious Kerrang! tour having queues of people snaked around the block so that fans could get in to see Sleeps open the bill, to critical acclaim across the pages of Kerrang! Metal Hammer and Rock Sound and regular plays on Radio 1, Scuzz and Kerrang! TV, the Sheffield natives have rapidly and justifiably become one of the highest regarded rock bands in Britain.

While She Sleeps are a terrifying force to be reckoned with, a barrage of belligerent sound that straddles and combines a variety of genres they’d prefer you to just call “alternative rock”.

Foy Vance: The Wild Swan World Tour, w/ special guest Ryan McMullan

FOY VANCE knows how to write a song. It’s a naturally finessed skill that led to collaborations with such diverse artists as Plan B, Sheryl Crow and Rudimental; syncing on multiple TV shows from Grey’s Anatomy to the Sons Of Anarchy finale, and beguiled some of the biggest players like Elton John and Ed Sheeran.

So in the run-up to the new album release, Vance travelled a long way from home (born in Bangor, N Ireland and now living in Aberfeldy, Scotland) to Nashville and, for an incurable songwriter, Music City is an irresistible draw where Vance can work with the best of the best.  Not, Vance clarifies, for himself or his own material as he has already completed The Wild Swan featuring twelve brilliant songs of such high calibre there’s no need for any outside assistance!

“I’m not snobby about it, but I wouldn’t feel comfortable writing with other people for myself. That feels like it’s my own private joy,” adds a man who craftedThe Wild Swan entirely to his own vision, in Nashville’s Blackbird Studios, aided by Jacquire King, who recorded and mixed one of his favourite albums, Tom Waits’ Mule Variations.

“And I used to steer clear of writing with other people altogether until I started doing it just by chance. And then I realised that even when it goes shit, it’s still a learning curve,” Vance notes with a smile. “Every wrong path is a way to the right path. I keep it pretty lean. But when good people come up, I give it a go.”

One of those good people is Ed Sheeran. Vance co-wrote “Tenerife Sea” and “Afire Love” from 2014’s multi-million- selling X, and he wrote “Make It Rain”, which Sheeran sang over the final episode of cult biker drama Sons Of Anarchy.

“Ed’s like a wee song machine,” Vance notes approvingly. “He would always go places lyrically that I wouldn’t go myself, so he makes me think about the lyrical choices I make. Working with Ed made me a better writer.”

Now, with the impassioned, rootsy, rousing The Wild Swan – an album that makes nods to, and takes cues from, proper heroes ranging from Noam Chomsky to Ziggy Stardust to WB Yeats – the pair’s relationship moves to another level. Sheeran has signed Vance to Gingerbread Man Records, the label he launched in 2015 with Jamie Lawson and his self-titled, chart-topping debut album.

But in fact, Vance and Sheeran’s relationship goes back way further than that.

“Ed’s dad used to bring him to my gigs when he was 13,” begins Vance, a born hobo-raconteur (and he has the storyteller’s hat and showman’s moustache to prove it). “He only told me this after we’d done a couple of gigs together, but he’d been to something like 48 gigs of mine before we’d ever met.”

As an up-and-coming artist always keen to honour his formative influences, as soon as he started to have some success, Sheeran sought to pay it back.

“He reached out and said, ‘do you want to come on tour with me?’ And I’m thinking: ‘When else is a thirty-something, white, baldy Irishman single father who lives up in the mountains gonna get to on a bona fide pop tour?’ So I said, ‘yeah, I’ll go and do it.’

“And that tour was tough! I thought I’d just go in and do my own show. But I realised very quickly that, even though he hadn’t fully broken through at that time, his crowd of screaming teenage girls was ferocious – I spent more time bombing than I did anything else,” laughs Vance. “They just looked at me as if I was Ed’s demented uncle wheeled on for the craic, singing about heartache and cancer.”

Still, the Sheeran/Vance relationship flourished, with the pair emailing each other works-in-progress songs and Vance supporting Sheeran on the closing, Antipodean leg of the mammoth X tour. There was even a night trading riffs and rhymes with Sheeran, Jay Z and Beyoncé in the basement of Snow Patrol’s New York bar. But that’s another story for another biog.

One of the impetuses behind Sheeran founding Gingerbread Man Records was to give musicians he truly believes in complete artistic freedom, and so he made his friend an incredible offer: the chance to make a new album with an Artist-led record company, with full support and without constraint.

“Ed said, ‘go and make the record you want to make.’” Vance took him at his word. Similarly, he made sure Jacquire King was fully onboard.

“Mule Variations is not only an exquisitely-written record but a wonderful sounding record. I actually flew out to meet Jacquire in person before agreed to work with him because I wanted to look in the whites of his eyes and make sure we’d be on the same page. I didn’t want something too clean and polished and commercial.”

That said, there’s no denying the infectious beauty of The Wild Swan. It opens with “Noam Chomsky Is A Soft Revolution”, a rock’n’blues celebration of a roll-call of musical, philosophical, literary and polemical insurrectionists. It stops off with “Coco”, a tender, campfire song written for the young daughter of good friend Courtney Cox (Coco is a friend of Vance’s own daughter, Ella). And it ends with a dash of uillean pipes and “The Wild Swans On The Lake”, astop-you-in-your-tracks breath of Celtic balladry inspired by WB Yeats’ poem The Wild Swans At Coole.

Vance’s rich, rich voice also gets up close and personal on the hymnal “Burden”, then digs deep for “She Burns”, a song and a performance evocative of Bruce Springsteen’s “Tunnel Of Love”.

There are other, equally deeply felt glories too, like the ancient-but-modern “Be Like You Belong”, Vance’s soulful rasp weaving through pedal-steel and simple piano chords, or “Ziggy Looked Me In The Eye”. The latter is a piano-based, strings-buoyed soul-stirrer that compresses anthemic cri de coeur into four minutes of dignified tribute to, says Vance, “various people who I think have been part of a revolution. I’m not talking about Che Guevara or Ghandi or even Russell Brand for that matter – I’m talking about personal revolution. I like that idea constantly revolting against your own parameters.”

This thinking no doubt informs Vance’s embracing the opportunity of a summer tour with Elton John. Ever attuned to passionate artists, and forever intent on giving audiences the best possible night, Elton has invited Vance to support him on the British and European legs of his Wonderful Crazy Tour. But Elton’s enthusiasm for Vance goes deeper, still, than that – he’s Executive Producer of The Wild Swan.

“I feel so privileged to be a part of this remarkable artist’s first album on Gingerbread Man Records,” says Elton. “He is an extraordinary writer and singer.”

As seals of approval go, they don’t come much better than the imprimatur of one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

Referring to the album’s penultimate song, the “antsy”, agit-folk “Fire It Up”, this tyro-troubador sets straight his goals: “|t just has to be real. You go back to ancient Irish music, or Native American music, or people out on the plains of Africa – those people who are struggling for food, sometimes not eating for weeks on end, and having to hydrate themselves by piercing the neck of a wildebeest. But every single night the drums are out, and they’re singing around the fire.

“That tells you something about what music actually is. Whereas we’ve turned into a commodity – it’s become something to sell, a vehicle to get money or fame,” Foy Vance says with cheerful distaste. “That’s not what has ever interested me. It’s the music itself that matters. It has to be real.”

COASTA are back! And fifteen years later you can catch the second wave.

April ’98 and four lads with nothing but guitars, enthusiasm and a love for real music served an apprenticeship based on hard graft; turning tunes in to songs, making grooves out of beats and putting on a great show for the fans.

The result was two years of relentless gigging, their infectious vocal harmonies and rocking riffs travelling the length and breadth of the country; from Fibbers to ‘Night and Day’ in Manchester to ‘The Sound Republic’ in London’s Leicester Square.

After recording their debut E.P., ‘Just Like You’ (produced by Alan Leach from Shed Seven), they finally reaped their rewards, landing a slot at the Leeds Carling Festival in 2000.

One more E.P. followed (‘Meet Your Match’) before the lads parted company to follow other pursuits. Now they are back to relive the glory days and release the album they never did.

Matt Appleton, Kev Barnes, Paul Downes and Ian Peacock are back – catch the 2nd wave!

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… (!)
