Alrighty all? Hope so, for there is plenty news for you all to absorb.
First up, additions to bills: Next Saturday (22nd), LEE CLAYDEN will be opening up the Singing Adams show at Sticky Mikes. He’s fantastic and there’s a bit more news about him further down that we’re dead excited about.
Then on Saturday 12th November, HOCKEYSMITH and TWO JACKALS (until the other day called simply ‘Jackals’ but had to change due to another band with the same name) will be joining us for the Tyrannosaurus Dead EP Launch at Fitzherberts.
And THEN on Wednesday 16th November, KELLAR will be performing their debut gig opening for Kutosis & Samoans at The Hope! Fantastic!
And finally with the additions, way off on Saturday 21st January the lovely MODEL VILLAGE will be opening for Standard Fare & Tyrannosaurus Dead at the Green Door Store.
Secondly, a NEW GIG! On Sunday 27th November we have LOVE AMONG THE MANNEQUINS (featuring members of Meet Me In St Louis, Shield Your Eyes, O You Broken Eyes and Crooked Mountain Crooked Sea) and TANGLED HAIR coming down to play at the Prince Albert, which should be just lovely. Tickets for that one will be £5 in advance or £6 on the door.
Thirdly, and properly finally for this post – we’re dead happy to be putting out the debut solo album by Lee Clayden (mentioned before). It should be available for your consumption at the end of January or so next year, but for now we’ve uploaded some tracks and a video to his Facebook BandPage. We have loads of faith in Lee as he’s such a massive talent, and we’re very excited to be releasing this!
And that’s it. Quite a lengthy posting from me there, I hope you stuck to the end as it’s all great news. See you next time!
Two new great shows to tell you all about now, cor! First up, we’re hosting a release party for the upcoming debut EP we’re putting out by Tyrannosaurus Dead and we’re very excited about it – it’ll be our very first entirely FREE show and will be at Fitzherberts on New Road (next to the Mash Tun and opposite the Unitarian Church, where the following afternoon will be the Darren Hayman piano show!)
Copies of the EP will be available at the show for the low, low price of £3! Bargain! Have a listen to it on the embedded soundcloud player in the previous post on here – it’s great. ALSO, we’re putting on the very magnificent Cardiff bands KUTOSIS and SAMOANS on Wednesday 16th November at The Hope! They’re touring together in support of the brand new debut Kutosis album (out November through Barely Regal Records) and should both be great.
We discovered Kutosis through our friends at Basement Fever some time ago and are eternally grateful, they’re just brilliant. And to prove it, here are a couple of clips – one a music video and the other a live vid from Reading & Leeds in 2009.
