Idle Noise are an indie rock quartet from Coventry. The band take influence from a range of artists including The Strokes, Circa Waves and The Enemy. With infectious hooks, stomping choruses and huge stage presence, their performances capture the audience of every show they play.
The last few years have seen them play alongside the likes of The Charlatans and The Wombats with 2 consecutive main stage slots at Coventry’s Godiva Festival, as well as a range of other shows and artists across the UK. More recently, they supported Coventry’s own Tom Clarke (The Enemy) at a sold out hometown show in December 2019, followed by the band’s own sold out headline show at Manchester’s iconic Deaf Institute in January 2020.
Since forming, every track the foursome have released has been aired on BBC Introducing radio, with their 2019 singles ‘Rapture’ and ‘Everybody Gets Famous’ also being frequently featured on pre match and half-time playlists at League One and Championship Football clubs Coventry City and Luton Town.
Their latest single ‘Ghosts’ was released in May 2020 to incredibly positive reactions across the country. It received immediate radio play both locally and internationally, including BBC Coventry and Warwickshire and Zone Radio, South Africa as well as a number of other stations globally.

CRACK CLOUD (Meat Machine Records)
In this age of the individual, Crack Cloud offer something of an antithesis: a collective founded on community spirit and communal freedom. Like Psychic TV before them, Crack Cloud have a philosophy, and one that they are not afraid to wear on their sleeves. While their anarchic, phantasmagorical visuals, heavy use of symbology, and seemingly never-ending cast of colourful collaborators have often invited cult comparisons, this really does the collective no justice. There is no apocalyptic death drive here; no cult of personality; no hierarchy of power. While frontman and lyricist Zach Choy is in many ways the face of the group, the collective is one founded on equality, and in his cryptic lyrical blending of poetics, polemics and personal experience, Choy is truly the mouthpiece of something far larger than himself.
Military Genius (Unheard of Hope)
War-torn industrial, experimental r&b, and visceral ambience are unified under the banner of Military Genius, an audiovisual project that mirrors the political and existential turmoil of our times. Spreading a message of peace amidst the turbulence, Military Genius blends rigid composition and free-form noise, producing abstract, meditative representations of real-life experience.

THE CATENARY WIRES, PETE ASTOR, THE PRISTINES + THE SUNBATHERS
at The Tin Music and Arts
Saturday 25 September /£6 adv
We're excited to bring this brilliant double headliner to Coventry!
THE CATENARY WIRES formed in 2014, initially as a duo.
Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey had previously been in Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research and Tender Trap. The first Catenary Wires album "Red Red Skies" (Elefant/Matinée Recordings, 2015) was a marked departure from the fuzzy sixties-inspired girl-group pop of their earlier bands. It was more acoustic, emotive and melancholy.
With the release of their second album "Til The Morning" (Tapete, 2019), the band expanded to include Andy Lewis (bass), Fay Hallam (vox, keyboards) and Ian Button (drums). While the sound was bigger, the core of the band remained the dual vocals of Amelia and Rob.
The band have just completed their third album, to be released in May 2021. The first single "Mirrorball" is a lovesong inspired by eighties discos. It will be released on Shelflife (US) and their own new label, Skep Wax (UK and rest of world).
PETE ASTOR was the singer and songwriter in The Loft and The Weather Prophets; they were on Creation Records from the beginning and helped establish the feel and sound of the label.
Pete then made a series of solo records, including Submarine (1990, Creation) and Paradise (1992, Danceteria), the latter having recently been reissued on Tapete Records. He then formed The Wisdom of Harry and Ellis Island Sound (with David Sheppard) and signed to the Matador and Heavenly labels respectively, releasing albums under these guises until the early 2000s.
In 2005 he released Hal’s Eggs on Static Caravan and he has continued to release solo records on a variety of labels: Songbox (2011, Second Language), Spilt Milk (2015, Fortuna Pop), One For the Ghost (2017, Tapete) and You Made Me (2020, Faux-Lux).
Formed after the C86 indiepop explosion, THE PRISTINES introduced their own brand of Indie lo-fi guitar pop with psychedelic shoegaze and called it Gazedelia, releasing singles and albums in the early 90s most notably on Sunday Records (US),
THE SUNBATHERS, are a seaside-obsessed duo from the landlocked Midlands who play acoustic pop songs with a melancholic twist. Originally formed in 2007, they released their long-awaited debut album “A Weekend Away With…” on Seattle-based Jigsaw Records in 2018. They also appear alongside the Pristines on Sunday Records’ They Go Boom tribute, Somewhere In England (2020).

Notice from the Tin Music and Arts: Unfortunately, due to continued uncertainty about when live music in doors can go ahead, Roddy's management have rescheduled the tour to next year. The new date is now - Thu - 07 Oct 2021

Peggy Sue are London-via-Brighton indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young. Founded in 2007, the band have released three albums on Wichita Recordings, culminating in 2014's critically acclaimed 'Choir Of Echoes', and toured with the likes of Jack White, Local Natives and First Aid Kit.
After a three year break - during which Slade and Young have been performing with all-female singing group Deep Throat Choir - new single 'Slow Fade' is an apt comeback – a melancholy celebration of patience. Upcoming fourth album sees the band borrowing from the perfectly-constructed pop songs of the 1960s and the understated, noisey guitar experiments of 90s indie bands such as The Breeders and Blur.
With support from local post-punkers RAVENS.

The Tin, Central Committee and Creature Lab are pleased to announce that we will be bringing THE UTOPIA STRONG to the city.
The Utopia Strong are a semi-modular trio, delivering medical grade music to the visionary music head. Kavus Torabi, Michael York and Steve Davis have fused Modular Synthesisers with conventional and traditional instruments to create a weird and joyous celebration of all that is good about left field psychedelic music.
Kavus Torabi is an experimental/psychedelic musician with a long history in the field, including as a member of The Cardiacs.
Steve Davis was the most successful professional Snooker player of the 1980’s, now spending his time collecting left field music from around the globe, presenting a monthly radio show with Kravus and cementing his interest in the modular synth as a member of The Utopia Strong.
Michael York is a multi instrumentalist and luthier, working mainly with modular/analogue synths and woodwinds (primarily focusing on bagpipes, reeds and flutes of Europe and the Near East.
Support comes from Gunther Prague. Like Shellac vs Cardiacs or Minutemen playing metal, Gunther Prague recorded their second long player with Steve Albini in Chicago in 2017, released on their own Creature Lab label.
Tickets £10 in advance, £12 on the door.

Warmduscher are a group of miscreants, known only by aliases (Clams Baker Jr, Lightnin’ Jack Everett, Salt Fingers, Quicksand and Dr. Withers aka Little Whiskers). Ardent fans, Iggy Pop and Marc Riley have only gleaming praise to heap on the band, and in return, Warmduscher have blessed them both with immortality.
The band’s live show has left thousands across the UK and Europe desperate for more. During their set at End of the Road Festival 2018, they were accused of inciting a riot and thrown into a giant hole.
They have since emerged and will soon embark on a worldwide tour of France, Switzerland and Italy. Breathe it in before it’s gone
