Acclaimed rock-beat poet with an impressive new album - Tongues For A Stammering Time - on Anhrefn Records. It features contributions from Billy Bragg (who he is touring with), James Dean Bradfield and his brother Nicky Wire of Manic Street Preachers among a sterling line up and is a soundtrack of twisted 21st century mirrored in beats. An often quoted, inspiring playwright, author and film maker still not afraid to be right on and full on, Patrick plays a words and music set tonight with his band.
A young musical gang from art beat of London's lower east side - in yer face newer wave pop charm and pro-active scene creation. Fresh out of the traps, they're rather good" according to Xfm's John Kennedy and have already played the legendary Astoria II in October. They find themselves on the same bill as Motorhead, Happy Mondays etc at Guilfest 2009 and in demand at creative gatherings like the 30,000 strong People's Day Festival. If it's about new music from promising young upstarts Edit/Select have got big ideas and invite you to join the campaign.
Youthful post-punkers from East Spanglier with the spiky British charm of home grown classic faves. Formed through frustration with a lot of what passes as new music, this is their escape. Making a definite impression from the get go, their attitude and energy won a release on anti-establishment label R*E*P*E*A*T. and propelled them to the attention of sussed industry. The Shills have been taken under the wing of Manic Street Preachers/Anthony & The Johnsons/Tricky producer, Roger Fife, and with Globalnet Records behind them, they're ready for the next step.
The Heartbreakers, members of the Rock Chicks Institute who spin past, present and future classics for bands, clubs and bashes from Pop Levi and Classic Rock Magazine to being regular hosts of "the riotous Rocklands scene" (Time Out)
Its on the 453 Bus Route, 10 mins walk from Camden/Oxford Street and we like the bar prices. A club then. Whoever comes will make whatever happens next. Share The Joy.
