Batcsh and Jackdaw With Crowbar double biller!
Tickets: £5 adv/£7 on the door.

JACKDAW WITH CROWBAR
Since 1985 Jackdaw with Crowbar have been unsettling audiences all across EUROPE with their un-genred approach to live music with film. John Peel was obviously unsettled when he invited them back for a second Radio 1 session in 1987.
Back in the day an assorted combo of regional musicians coming together to stir political soup loud in your ears, eyes and face. These days the core remains, embracing technology in a bright montage of ever relevant visions. The contemporary electronic sound brings together dub bass, pleasing melodies, dancing beats, funny little chords that are almost but not wrong and a vocalist that would steal your straight jacket given half the chance!
Oh, and a poem about Brexit x
BATSCH
Batsch are a 'dark disco' trio based in Coventry, England. Their smart, groove-oriented dance-pop takes nods from classic art rock like Talking Heads as well as modern contemporaries, such as Little Dragon and Dutch Uncles. The band formed in 2013 but the collaborations of singer/guitarist Mason Le Long, bassist Joe Carvell, drummer Matt Rheeston and keyboardist Andy Whitehead date back further. A previous incarnation of the band, DON'T MOVE!, released its only album, 'The New Pop Sound', on Tin Angel Records in 2009. All four members have also toured extensively with other artists, including Laetitia Sadier, Marker Starling, Devon Sproule and Nicholas Krgovich, many of whom are also on Tin Angel's roster, putting Batsch at the epicentre of the British label's cult international scene.
Batsch released their debut EP, Tiles, in October 2013 and its follow-up, also a five-track EP, Collar, in 2014. Their debut full-length album, almost-eponymously titled Batch, was released April 2017 on Tin Angel Records. Its follow-up is hot off the press, so look out for new material in 2019.

Vancouver-based band NoV3L makes music that serves as time capsule of 70s/80s, but also nudges towards modern indie rock. It’s dark, raw, and has a lyrical sharpness that cuts straight through the point. Their latest offering, “To Whom It May Concern,” transports you into a noir dimension where the mantric anti-capitalist phrases “Time is a resource / To use and to treasure!” provokes an invigorating sense of rebellion

Say Sue Me are a Surf inspired Indie-Rock/Pop act from Busan, South Korea and cited as one of 2018's ‘break-out bands'.

Childhood friends Jaeyoung Ha (Bass) and Byungkyu Kim (guitar) met drummer Semin Kang and played in bands together since winter of 2012, when they met Sumi Choi at a tea shop in Nampo-dong. They liked her speaking voice and immediately offered her a spot as the vocalist in a new band that would become Say Sue Me. Sumi turned out to be a natural at songwriting. Semin sadly suffered trauma from a fall. New drummer Changwon Kim stands in while they await Semin’s recovery.


Following showcases at SXSW in 2018, the band released their sophomore album “Where We Were Together” and a RSD covers EP which won praise from Pitchfork, NPR, Billboard, i-D, The Independent, Stereogum, Paste, MTV, Uproxx. Fader, DIS, DIY, The 405 & more. Three tracks were playlisted on BBC 6Music three times where Lauren Laverne, Tom Ravenscroft, Gideon Coe and Don Letts have championed the band as well as Elton John on Beats1 and KEXP.

In 2019 Say Sue Me were nominated for 5 Korean Music Awards and announced for SXSW & Liverpool Sound City Festivals.

Louisa Roach isn’t a protest singer. The ambitious, melodic psych pop this Merseyside artist makes under the moniker She Drew The Gun is too abstract for that label, more dreamy than didactic. But it’s fair to say this rising star – winner of Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent contest in 2016 – works adjacent to that tradition, taking inspiration from the likes of underground folk legend Malvina Reynolds, and contemporary poets such as Kate Tempest and Manchester’s Toria Garbutt. 

“I’ve always felt drawn to music that says something,” explains Roach, “music that goes beyond simple love songs. As a songwriter, you’ve got the whole spectrum of human experience to draw from; half of that is the bigger picture stuff.” 

It’s mostly the latter that drives Roach’s music, from her promising 2016 debut, Memories of the Future ["Junkyard Scouse soul, built ingeniously on a Wirral council budget” ★★★★ Uncut] to her brilliant, forthcoming follow-up, Revolution of Mind, to be released October 5th on Skeleton Key Records. If there’s a central theme to this new record, says Roach, it’s liberation, in various guises: “Empowerment; resisting; arming yourself with knowledge; questioning the status quo, questioning your own state of mind and how it’s affected by the systems we live in…” 

Listen to Revolution of Mind, with its melodic choruses and stream-of-consciousness style verses delivered in Roach’s cool, Scouse-inflected vocals, and it’s clear where She Drew The Gun hail from – spiritually and geographically. “I love 60s music and Psychedelia, I’ve also been inspired by Liverpool bands like The Coral, The La’s and The Lightning Seeds. I think we’re somewhere along that continuum.”

If you ask the likes of Peter Buck, Scott Mccaughey, Willy Vlautin, Jay Farrar, John

Murry or Kathleen Edwards they’ll all agree that Peter Bruntnell is a writer with rare and mysterious qualities.There are many influences at work on his records from The Beatles to Big Star to Nick Drake (although they're not necessarily apparent, like the

best influences aren't),and when NME claimed that “Peter Bruntnell’s records should be taught in schools”, they were referring to the particular appeal of the quiet Devonian’s songwriting craft. Nos Da Comrade returns emphatically to the earliest days of Bruntnell’s career, a full-on electric psych-rock experience.

 

"Bruntnell has a remarkable knack for turning out big, dreamy, melodic, memorable songs" - MOJO

"his songs are warm and beautifully radiant"-Uncut

"one of the finest songwriters in Britain"-The Independant

"one of England's best kept musical secrets"-Rolling Stone

"lyrically ingenious and emotionally, intellectually affecting songs that bears comparison with

the all-time greats"-The Guardian

"this wonderful album demonstrates why his near-peerless songwriting should be cherished"-Q
"Bruntnell is up there with the very best. "Irish Times

Internationally acclaimed Toby Walker is an award winning, roots music fingerstyle guitar virtuoso and songwriter who has toured the US, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Blending the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, old-time jazz and rock, Walker has his own style and has received numerous awards, including being the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award in Memphis and the New York Music Award for best instrumental CD. Walker has also been inducted into the New York Blues Hall Of Fame.

Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk, and other traditional American music drove him to leave an apartment crammed full of recordings, books and instruments for the Mississippi Delta, Virginia and the Carolinas where he tracked down some of the more obscure - but immensely talented - music makers of an earlier era. He learned directly from Eugene Powell, James "Son" Thomas,Etta Baker, and R.L Burnside, among others.

 

"If he doesn't get them with his phenomenal guitar playing or catchy songs, he gets them with his wonderful stories. True entertainers have an engaing spirit that puts a smile on your face. Arlo Guthrie has it. David Bromberg has it. And so does Toby. "

- John Platt - WFUV

 

"A fingerpicking guitar virtuoso"

- Happy Traum
