Roughly monthly night featuring all kinds of bands/performers from psyche-folk/drone/alt.country/indie-folk/indie-rock/electronica etc.
The next event features the rather amazing Trembling Bells:
Trembling Bells (Glasgow, Honest Jon's Records, UK Tour)
Moll Baxter Band
8.30pm, £4 entry.
Yorkshire House, Parliament Street, Lancaster, LA1 5DB
"Trembling Bells are my kind of band."
Joe Boyd (Legendary producer of Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, John Martyn, Incredible String Band, early Pink Floyd etc)
An “incredible collection of songs, which combine early music, psychedelic noise, anthemic rock and traditional British melodies to carry tales of heartbreak and yearning...the myriad musical ideas are nailed down by classic, disciplined songwriting.”
(**** Mojo Magazine)
“one of the best new British bands of any genre that I’ve come across in a while”
Lot's of great press from Wire Magazine, New York Times, people's blogs etc.
Trembling Bells are Alex Neilson's song-based group who seek to reanimate the psychic landscapes of Great Britain and relocate them to some vague, mythic land where basic human crises are encountered and conquered via a love for canonical rock, traditional folk and Earlie Musik.
SUPPORTS (see top 5 Friends):
The Moll Baxter Band - Moll is a singer-songwriter-poet-short story specialiser and general all rounder and good egg! She's aided by some excellent musicians, including Rob Daniels on drums (currently drumming for Electric Free Time Machine and ex-theWisemen) and Simon Fletcher (also EFTM on bass). Expect great lyrics and a throbbing rhythm section!
Paddy Garrigan - A solo performer of some magnitude. He was in the original line-up of the Puma-Sutras, the frontman of the much-missed Pier Group, multi-instrumentalist in the Wisemen, and current member of festival favourites the Weirdstring Band. Last seen in Lancaster supporting Curtis Eller at LAWM.
Cameron Crook - Cam goes under a couple of different names including We Don't Know Who You Are Anymore and There's Nothing Funny About Paradoxes in which he sites Tunng, Mogwai, cLOUDDEAD, Four Tet, Daft Punk, DJ Shadow as influences. He says "I can't settle on a style for my musics so it all tends to flit between folk-ish instrumentals, post-rock and electronic".
Goldmundo - Psychedelic-folk singer-songwriter. Most often seen playing guitar for Dan Haywood's New Hawks and Starless & Bible Black, bass playing for Joyeux and the Little Hero Band, formerly frontman of the Wisemen, ex-bass player for the Puma-Sutras and the Gokarnas.
All for £4!!!
