More Details
"Those who arrive early tonight get a real treat, an opportunity to tour Ciphers’ charred cathedral of dark-hearted pop.  The first number moves from the brooding menace of Mezzanine-era Massive Attack to the melodic ire of Skunk Anansie, and the set blossoms like les fleurs du mal from thereon.  The sound is vast, but there’s still space for intricately interlocking guitars and chunky unfunk bass a la 23 Skidoo.  A new but deeply intriguing band" Nightshift
Bristol's Jukes make spacious, spaghetti western pop. Tammy Payne is the singing drummer heading this trio, who unfurl understated epic tunes like a skirl of dust spinning across a parched mesa.  The vocals are clear and crisp, and the bass and guitar accompaniment is tight and insistent but subtle.  An original, haunting and evocative whole.
First Reserves
Here at GTI we always like to catch the young bands first, and give them a leg up over the orchard wall of gigging to scrump the apples of pop glory.  Which is a way of saying we like to book young bands, but only when they’re good, mind.  First Reserves, despite their self-deprecating moniker, are good, proffering restrained, blues-flecked alt-rock tunes with warm winning vocals.  Like a 21st century Chickenshack kicking back.
