What's on Next...
Overlord play a fresh, modern take on the dark, progressive rock/early metal bands of the 1970s, informed as much by modern thrash/groove metal as they are by traditional blues. Through these myriad influences, the band intends to create music that can be enjoyed and appreciated by any fan of heavy music – they also have a very healthy respect for early Sabbath. “A catchy combination of Sleep and Electric Wizard, with a chorus so slyly infectious that I found myself singing it two, even three days after I’d first heard it” – Music In Oxford EP review.
A greasy, sleazy furball of garage rock from Aylesbury, promising “noise, chaos and energy” in a Stooges meets Cramps style. A stripped out psychedelic speedball of noise and fury that fuses resolutely raw and dirty grunge with classic blues sounds. Seething like rabid animals, the guitars growl and the drums pound to themes of frustration and rebellion, creating music of uncompromising, visceral power. Sounds good, eh?
Francis Pugh & The Whisky Singers
Something very very different to open. The Whisky Singers are a sextet built around fictional Francis Pugh (so, perhaps they’re really a septet?), playing warm yet intricate Americana, folk and country, with a cheeky glint in its eye. They’ve been known to play gigs in the bar of venues, instead of the auditorium, or even to play a “gig” whilst walking down the streets between various pubs. One for fans of Tom Russell, Gillian Welch, The Punch Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Band and Bill Monroe...or, you know, just good music and relaxed vibes.
