Dan Haywood's New Hawks return to the Yorkshire House on Thursday 17th June to play some New Hawks for you. We may be reviving some lesser spotted species, along with some more common types. The album is now ready - manufacturing is the last hurdle!

Men Diamler - A man called Richard Davies from Cheltenham, played storming sets at Feedback and LAWM. He's a performer of some magnitude, there's nothing half-hearted about any of it.

Press have said:
"Men Diamler is a young man with a cult reputation in the South West who will not be tamed by the powers that be, reconfiguring a English/Welsh soul music through woozy operatics and wild and weird song/stories. Sweet and darkness have never sounded so close or so intense in such performer. Despite his tender age he is a channel for old thyme ways - footstompin' blues, two string serenades, backwoods drinking hollers, horse play and pagan folk all get exorcised. Psychosis never sounded this good and people clap" Qujunktions
" tears away at your singer/songwriter preconceptions, replacing them with black humour and visceral gore" Rottenmeats
"imagine Roy Orbison with a two punctured lungs and John Fahey with a fractured hand?well, he sounds better than that"
"Mr. Diamler's music seems to carve its initials somewhere between Son House & Syd Barrett on the musical park-bench. That said, this is fiery and unapologetic music that lives in a fucked up, peculiar world of it's own. Lopsided folk music that leaps at you, sometimes very literally" Thora Zine
"Men Diamler cannot be ignored. He looks a little like electric-era Bob Dylan, and it's just him and his guitar, and sometimes it's just him, a cappella – not even always in front of a microphone – but his voice is so astonishing that traffic literally stops. Yes, I know what I've just said. He makes sure we know we're watching a performance of spiritual-gospel-blues, but it's authentic as it gets. Again, I know what I've just said, but it's true. It's ridiculous, in all honesty, because somebody with much more influence than I have should be writing about him. FACT MAGAZINE
