The Moor Music Festival cordially invites you to...
THE MOOR SOCIAL
FRIDAY JANUARY 25th @ The Brudenell Social Club - LS6 1NY
Doors 6pm - £4
It seems like years since the last Moorfest happened and to be honest I think the weather was very much a factor in whether people enjoyed themselves or not. Some thrived in the mud whilst others wept until their dads could pick them up. Moorfest is still carving an identity for itself and in the three years that it has been established I think I can say that the one thing that most people love about it is the friendly atmosphere, and this gig is a good opportunity to meet up with friends that perhaps you haven't seen since the festival, to make new friends, enjoy quality music, get a flavour of Moorfest if you haven't already been and also to talk to the organisers in order to give your opinions on how to improve the festival.
KLEZMA TRIP - Are simply an awesome live band. Featuring the amazing musicians that are Giuliano Modarelli, Bill Laurance, Sam Hobbs and Joe these guys had a packed Brudenell dancing all night to infectious eastern grooves which blends aspects of funk, jazz, reggae and indian music into a medicine which you just want spoon after spoon of. Although they are yet to have there own myspace, you can get a flavour here: http://www.myspace.com/giulianomodarelli and listen to 34 klezma.
VESSELS - These guys absolutely rocked Moorfest with mucho hardness and aplomb. They're always getting better, bigger and probably older too. Massive soundscapes, deliciously simple melodic guitar meanderings, vocals that haunt but are still comforting and an intensity that sucks you directly into their world.
COWTOWN - Instant party merchants and connoisseurs of novelty, the Cowtown crew are like a reflex to an injection of arabic coffee directly into both cheeks of your bottom that remains long after they've finished. Skewed sharp guitar riffs, electro kitsch synths and sparse and hard rock drums is one way of summing them up and definitely not the best.
GRAMMATICS - Some beautiful music is being made by this band. Thoughtful, saturated with meaning and executed with a maturity that is usually way beyond their years, but not this time. Crashing guitars, inventive song structures, soaring cello, wanting vocals, the macabre, regret and then rushes of hope.
CAVIL - An acoustic artist whose sometimes fraught vocal delivery goes hand in hand with his beauifully bleak lyrics and gentle picking style to paint the scene of a walking alone in a cold but fresh dawn.
PETER WRIGHT - An acoustic singer/songwriter who is constantly drawing strength from Michael Elphick's alter ego and who creates music which harks back to a time when folk meant the power of a story which informed, offered the listener advice and posssibilities to choose from instead of definite direction. One thing you can hear from Peter's playing is how athletic his hands are, giving him fluid and effortless picking that is simply, very nice.
On the decks of sex keeping the atmosphere bubbling nicely will be local 3D fetishist and party animal Gojonnygogogogo.
We'll also be projecting your favourite photos that you've taken from previous Moorfests to create a live mashup that will adorn the walls of the Brudenell so please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure that everyone in the picture is cool for you to use them like this.
There'll be much more to boot like gorgeous organic food, t-shirt stall, films and raffles to win tickets to Moorfest 4 which we're working on right now and aim to make it the best yet.
Hope to see you there.
