The High Society & Good Name for a Racehorse present...
Thursday 11th Jan @ The Rose of England (Mansfield Rd, next to House of Fraser)
One of the most exciting young bands in the UK right now. There's something reminiscent of John Zorn's Naked City in the way they furiously plough through genres, and they should appeal to fans of Murder of Rosa Luxemburg, but they're forging a sound that's all their own. Debut album's out now on the excellent Sound Devestation Records.
SCORE ONE FOR SAFETY
Cavernous!! Dark as anything, they manage to make you feel like you're standing on the tallest mountain and circling the furthest spiral of hell at the same time. A rare treat.
HOUSE OF BROTHERS
Former Murder of Rosa Luxemburg and Scarecrows man gone solo. There are hundreds of singer-songwriters who draw inspiration from Nick Drake, Elliot Smith et al, but rarely do they have even a tenth of the talent of their heroes. HoB is a true exception though: this guy's up there with the best of 'em. Mark my words!
Doors open at 8.30pm and it's £4 (£3 for highsoc members*)
*membership available on the door.
