Right, so I’m going to quickly get this out of the way – THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR COMING TO JEFFREY LEWIS & THE JUNKYARD ON MONDAY. Cool, that should just about do it. Well, not really I suppose. I honestly can’t thank you all enough for coming, being lovely even though I listed the door time on WeGotTickets wrong and making it one of the best nights we at CM have ever put on. If you left just after the gig, you’ll have missed Jeff doing a drawing on the side of the upstairs bar a little later on – it’s still there but here’s a picture anyway:
But yes, thanks for that. I have NEWS on top of all that gushing though. And it’s good. It’s REALLY good.
I am delighted to announce that DARREN HAYMAN (of legendary Peel-faves HEFNER) will be performing an afternoon solo piano show for us at Brighton Unitarian Church (opposite the Mash Tun & Fitzherberts) on Sunday 13th November (just before my birthday – nice!) in support of his upcoming new album ‘The Ship’s Piano’. Doors will be at 2pm and as there will be little/no amplification in the venue we’d ask you to arrive on time so as to not disturb the performance.
And it doesn’t even end there. Support on the day will come from Darren’s former Hefner bandmate JACK HAYTER!
Exciting times for sure, tickets will be £9 in advance from Resident, Rounder, Ape and WeGotTickets.com and they should be on sale by Friday afternoon. If there are any left on the door, they’ll be £10. I hope to see you there!
Hey, it’s news-o’clock here at CM… I hope you’re ready.
First off, online tickets for the Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard have SOLD OUT. Completely. So much so that we moved stock around and ended up selling double the amount online than we had originally planned – how about that? There are still a few tickets left in Rounder, Resident and Ape though so go and snap them up!
Secondly, we’ve confirmed another gig for October! CM favourites ICE, SEA, DEAD PEOPLE will be paying us a visit for a headline show at the Green Door Store on Wednesday 12th October. We put them on in London a couple of years ago and since then have released their debut album (cover above) and played loads of shows. They’re one of the most ferocious live bands I’ve ever seen and they should be great (and LOUD) at a venue like the GDS. Get your tickets sas soon as they go on sale!
THIRDLY (told you there was lots of news), Brighton/London-based alt-rock chums TYRANNOSAURUS DEAD have just recorded their debut EP and we’ll be putting it out! This will be our first new release since the relocation to Brighton and we couldn’t be happier. Finding the middle ground between US rock luminaries Dinosaur Jr and the jangly joy of the C86 bands, T-Dead have only been together six months but in that time have made loads of friends and written some killer tunes. The EP was recorded at Transmission Studios by Ali (who also recorded CM-faves Caledonians‘ debut EP ‘EP One’ earlier this year) along with Chris Lowe of The Valentines and it sounds really quite great if I do say so myself. You can have a listen to it for now on their blog here and it’ll be available to buy very soon from some record stores, gigs and this very website’s shop.
