The Monochrome Set are a British post-punk/new wave band originally formed in London in 1978 . Featuring original members Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with Mike Urban, who was previously in the band in the early 90s, on drums and, newest recruit, Athen Ayren on keyboards. They were heavily influential in the 'post-punk' scene that evolved after the initial scorched earth of punk.
The band's early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade Label before signing with Virgin offshoot Din Disc. They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that labels' well known 'Pillows and Prayers' compilation.
Though The Monochrome Set split in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings, their album release count now being well into double figures.
After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing seven new, critically acclaimed, studio albums. Now in their 43rd year, they are promoting their latest album, playing songs old and new.

“Endlessly inventive and creative…A show not to be missed!” -Oxford Times
Merging a fevered imagination and solid songwriting with a mad scientist's brain for weird gadgets, American singer Thomas Truax is a true one-off.
UNCUT magazine says "Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics" while Splendid magazine called him "one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you've never heard of...an exceptional talent."
He is also known for his unique self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels, spoons and other found items called 'Mother Superior' and a souped up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator’
After riding the album/tour/album/tour cycle perpetually over nearly two decades with these ‘band mates’, Thomas decided it was due time to dedicate himself to expanding the menagerie with some new musical contraptions.
Bolstered by his Bandcamp supporters and some Arts Council England funding, he devoted much of last year to dreaming up and building these special new musical inventions which, alongside his familiar friends, will be previewed on this tour.
Notable Truax supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Gemma Ray, Richard Hawley, Amanda Palmer, Brian Viglione (Dresden Dolls/Violent Femmes) Bob Log III and the late author Terry Pratchett.
Most recently drummer Budgie (of Siouxsie and the Banshees/Creatures/Slits) collaborated with Thomas in Berlin on some new tracks. A single will be released in conjunction with the tour.
“Operating from the shadowy space between the glass-blown ambience of (‘Amelie’ composer) Yann Tiersen and ‘What’s he Building In There?’ era Tom Waits, musician/inventor Thomas Truax is something of a visionary.”
-The Mouth Magazine
"When he performs, it is a spectacle - the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal." -The Guardian

Roxanne de Bastion
Having built a loyal fanbase, her crowd-funded debut, Heirlooms & Hearsay, arrived in 2017, leading to support slots with Lambchop and the Wainwright Sisters and triumphant shows at Glastonbury and the Cambridge Folk Festival. Meanwhile, Roxanne’s remarkably self-sufficient approach was recognised by the FAC (Featured Artists Coalition) who invited her to join its Board Of Directors, advising alongside Imogen Heap, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, Fran Healy of Travis and Blur’s Dave Rowntree.
Bar Pandora owes its name to a literary cafe in La Latina, Madrid, where in 2017 Charlie Tophill used to hang out with her friends talking literature, life and feminism. Retrospectively inspired by the empowerment these friendships engendered, Charlie created Bar Pandora in 2021 as a musical project seeking to redress the balance of a life shadowed by self-imposed limitation and baseless inhibition. Working via unorthodox collaborations, Bar Pandora’s purpose is to make music with gut and gusto, to follow the feels, and to be creative for the sheer fun of it.
Musically, Bar Pandora’s melodious alt-pop is playfully sewn together from the offcuts of personal experience- field recordings, journal entries and improvised fragments which bop along to a rich undercurrent of harmonic synths, guitars and dynamic beats.
The songs are penned with mischievous frankness, delivering confessional composites of personal histories, inner monologues and self-building proclamations which are simultaneously singular and familiar. In Charlie’s words: "my lyrics are made up of my inner voices: the one that tells my story, the one that tells me what I want to do, the one that tells me I can’t do it, and the one that tells me that last voice was full of shit.”

Learning about what Deliluh has been through these past two years brought the commands on a cassette player to mind: press rewind, forward, play and eject. The band, now a duo of Kyle Knapp and Julius Pedersen, relocated to Europe from their Toronto base with the ambition to plug into a continent that felt more cohesive in terms of a gig circuit and to map new spaces, both terrestrial and spiritual. This bold move came with a number of adjustments.The first was a new touring line-up, following the decision of Erika Wharton-Shukster and Erik Jude to stay in Canada. The second was dealing with the cosmic headfuck of a deadly global pandemic that put a stop to most things outside of staying alive. Looking back, Kyle Knapp sees the process as “somewhat of a crash course in survival and keeping calm. Overall it's taught us a lot about what we want to accomplish, both in the present and the long term.”
The new record, Fault Lines, which is rele ased onJune 10th on Tin Angel Records, is the result.

Aragorn Promotions present: Jack Lukeman
Ages: 14+ (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)
Doors: 7.30pm for 8.00pm start
Tickets: £16 Adv/£18 OTD
Jack Lukeman is an Irish singer-songwriter, performer, raconteur and a whole lot more besides. A platinum-selling, critically acclaimed artist in his homeland, in recent years Lukeman has devoted more of his time to winning a growing fanbase in the UK and abroad. In this regard, he has toured the UK as Special Guest on tours by artists as varied as Imelda May, Jools Holland, The Proclaimers and Neil Sedaka. Along with the rest of the world Jack’s touring had all been moved several times then shelved.
Finally, he returns to live shows in the UK, he hasn’t been idle in lockdowns, having performed 30+ livestreams, all different shows having learnt songs by some of his favoured artists, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen and many more. A live lockdown album came from those sessions and he came close to doubling his Facebook followers. Lukeman is a compelling, dazzling stage performer.
Incorporating the theatrical and romantic sensibilities of the likes of Jacques Brel, but with genuine melodic appeal and a knack for creating his own ‘magic realist’ world that is peopled by all manner of unusual, picturesque characters - Lukeman is a rare, unusual brand of performer.
2022 is Jack’s time to really focus on the UK, he is headlining the 6,000 capacity 3Arena Dublin in November this year, so he largely won’t be performing in Ireland other than that show.
