A GLIMPSE OF PARADISE presents SOMETHIN' STUPID FOR VALENTINE'S DAY: A Discs and Duos night special featuring;
THE REBEL (JUNIOR ASPRIN RECORDS / LONDON)
Pure word and music from the satirical and often bewilderingly bitter sweet mind of COUNTRY TEASERS frontman B.R.Wallers, who has recorded over 28 albums on his own as THE REBEL and is joined in holy matrimony by Sophie Politowicz on Drums. For fans of Bill Hicks, The Fall, Kool Keith, The Residents, Ween, The Shadow Ring, The Male Nurse, Country Teasers and The Yummy Fur et al. ALL HAIL THE GREAT ART OF THE REBEL!
WAY THROUGH (UPSET THE RHYTHM / LONDON)
New and exciting Girl/Boy duo from London who dish up a quiet/loud POP racket fired up with machine gun drums, washed out samples, underwater guitar and vocals of charming, gay abandon that remind us of a young Pete Shelley if he had been born south of Watford. Wollop!
ISAMBARD KINGSTON BRUNEL (YORK VIA LEBANON)
Brothers in arms Lawrence and Shakeeb Hamdan take time out from playing in the bemusingly brilliant PLEASE & CLECKHUDDERSFAX to resurrect their old school alliance ISAMBARD KINGSTON BRUNEL, who transform what could be described as experimental noise in to the best karaoke ever, using tapes, minidiscs, botched synthesizers and monged out vocals. Descent!
PLUS! A GLIMPSE OF PARADISE DJS + Disco 'til late.
SATURDAY 12TH FEBRUARY at the STAR AND SHADOW CINEMA, NEWCASTLE.
Advance tickets cost £5 or £6 on the night
