Sunday 31st January 2010
The Fleece, Bristol
Open 8pm, Close 1am
With a sound that ranges from heartbreaking country to ferocious rockabilly punk, Emily Breeze has been alternately soothing and ravaging the ears of West Country gig-goers for the past few years.
Emily’s influences range from the audio terrorism of the Birthday Party and the Stooges to the glossy melodrama of Scott Walker and Roy Orbison via Bob Dylan’s arctic observations. But the 20-something Bristol-based musician adds a 21st century sensibility plus a feminine sexiness to these impeccable (anti)heroes. Backed by her blistering band, it’s all delivered in a stunning voice that veers from a nicotine whisper to a motorcycle snarl.
THE WAILINGEST CATS
Discordant, ramshackle and swinging noise-rock-jazz-noir - angular guitars, hip rhythms, skewed keys, muscular bass and sax are deployed with beautific decorum. For connoisseurs of The Bad Seeds, Jesus Lizard, Tom Waits, Duke Ellington, David Lynch and The Contortions - their debut self-titled EP is currently being mastered by Mr Bob Weston of Shellac fame.
