THE SLEEPING YEARS @ THE ELECTROACOUSTIC CLUB 2ND NOV
The Sleeping Years is the new project for ex-Catchers singer/songwriter Dale Grundle.
The Catchers released two critically acclaimed albums on Setanta Records and previously toured with Pulp, Oasis and Dr John, etc:
NME: 'two astonishing voices and a skipful of youthful charm - somehow encapsulate every idyllic summer and perfect romance you ever had. The end result is deliriously great songs and the single-handed reinvention of 'perfect pop' as a viable concept. Honest. 8/10'
The Times: 'It is a tribute to the band - and especially songwriter Dale Grundle - that their basic guitar/bass/drums/keyboards formula remains so fresh and involving. A soft-spoken masterpiece. 9 out of 10'
Roddy Woomble, the lead singer of Idlewild: 'Personally, I think (Catchers have) influenced me an awful lot. Their lyrics are a huge inspiration and certainly influence my approach towards writing. It's the way their singer, Dale Grundle, would write about seemingly ordinary subjects but still manage to weave all these strange analogies into them.'
The Sleeping Years will be playing an acoustic gig at the Electroacoustic Club, 34-35 Great Sutton Street
London, EC1V 0DX on the 2nd Nov. The band are on stage at 9.45pm.
