Clarinettist Adrian Cox started playing music aged 6 and turned professional at the age of 15. He has toured Europe extensively over the past 19 years and is "London's most charismatic reedsman" (Time Out London).

Over his career he has performed with artists including Wynton Marsalis, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Ronnie Wood, Guy Barker, at countless sell-out shows including Ronnie Scott’s, The Barbican, and The Lincoln Center (New York).

Adrian is influenced by the great New Orleans clarinettists such as George Lewis, and at present he is touring a show called "Profoundly Blue" which celebrates the music of his favourite clarinet player Edmond Hall. His 2018 tour had rave reviews as well as a feature on the Cerys Matthews show on BBC Radio 6.

Cox is also a member of UK jazz act Kansas Smitty's House Band, where his distinctive sound and songwriting accomplishments are invaluable to the group.

Adrian's love for the clarinet is eminent in his soulful and inspiring playing, and he will lift any bandstand. 

“If you were to describe Cox’s playing in one word you might use ‘hot’” -

Ricky Riccardi, Director of Research Collections for the Louis Armstrong House Museum, New York.

Much-loved indiegoth dreamboats DESPERATE JOURNALIST returned to the thoroughly frayed musical fray with a brand new (and suitably autumnal) single called ‘Cedars’ on November 2nd. Propelled along by Rob Hardy’s startlingly lush guitar and empowered by a frankly cracking chorus from singer Jo Bevan ‘Cedars’ saw the quartet (see also: drummer Caroline Helbert and bassist Simon Drowner) further hone their sensitive-yet-crushing alt.rock sound, relishing the old school DIY dynamics but never afraid to magic up a shiny modern melody or three, and then always willing to cast a shadow over that sheen. 

 

Happily, ‘Cedars’ is just the first track to come from Desperate Journalist’s forthcoming third album, due for release on February 22nd 2019. The album is called ‘In Search Of The Miraculous’ and will be available on a veritable pawful of formats, including CD, heavyweight vinyl and limited edition coloured vinyl. If the title conveys a sense of wide-eyed ambition then the music on ‘In Search Of The Miraculous’ fits the plot perfectly, featuring ten tracks fizzing with creative passion, giant choruses, heroic solos and poetic intensity. “I never liked your favourite band,” sighs Bevan at one gently cutting point in ‘Jonatan’. 

 

Warning: this album contains love songs, anti-love songs and other songs wandering about, lost in an in-between-daze. 

 

Last seen in London Town selling out Oslo in the spring of 2018, over the past five years Desperate Journalist have dazzled and delighted all and sundry with two excellent albums - ‘Desperate Journalist’ and ‘Grow Up’ – plus two effervescent standalone EPs and a raft of riotously enervating live shows running from The Scala to Stuttgart and back again.

RESURRECTION MEN are an alternative rock band formed in 2008 in the post-industrial city of Coventry, UK. With a three-pronged guitar attack producing gloomy atmospherics and hypnotic waves of noise, the band puts on a live show that is felt as much as it is heard, and is not easily forgotten. They threw genres aside with their long-awaited full length album "Resurrection Men Must Die" in 2014 and followed it up with "No" in October 2017.

Raiments: Avantgarde lofi experimental art pop poetry

http://raiments.bandcamp.com

Raiments are a Berlin-based avant garde musical collective, the

brainchild of lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Mano Camatsos.

Mano’s unorthodox electric guitar style is inspired by hip hop,

ethnological recordings and 20th century classical music. His abstract

lyrics meet an ever rotating procession of strings, woodwinds, brass

and electronics all held down by a locked groove. Raiments recently

played at the Fusion Festival 2018 in Germany and are looking to

continue their increasing momentum.

FEET have had quite the year. Coming out of the traps at a pace with their attention grabbing YALA Records debut 7", Petty Thieving, the indie newcomers followed that with another much-praised release, Backseat Driver. Those early taster releases picked up a host of top quality support, including the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Radio X’s John Kennedy, NME, Sunday Times Culture, DIY, Dork & The Line of Best Fit.

Whilst all juggling their final years at uni in Coventry, the band hit the road for the long hot summer of 2018, travelling the length and breadth of the UK in a tiny hatchback, for a host of key festival appearances (inc Field Day, Truck, Electric Fields, Tramlines and many more), headline shows, and more supports with their old friend Declan McKenna.

Today, FEET announce their first national headline tour, taking their raucous live show on the road for 12 dates next year that kick off in Portsmouth on 27th February, finishing in Dublin March 15th. These will also be the first live appearances with new drummer Ben (formerly of Dead Pretties).
