What's on Next...
Light, bubbly, funky rock from Oxford. Tight and authoritative, but with all the airy lightness of a Malteser made out of champagne and sunshine. A fitting summer band whether you want to dance into the sultry night, or wilt slowly with an ice cold drink. There’s an old-fashioned, tried and tested blues foundation to their music, on which they build their songs, chock-full of character and immediacy.
Juliet & The Raging Romeos
Fresh, sizzling new wave from down the road in Reading. “It’s singer Juliet, though, who gives the band their character, an alternately strident and sultry siren who, on demo opener `Good Girl’ reminds us of MIA and Penetration’s Pauline Murray in equal measures. By the time they hit `Venus’, she’s upped the tension enough to recall Hazel O’Connor as her band chugs with a meaty sense of pop-friendly punk purpose behind her. Probably not statue-kicking, barricade-manning musical fury, but the sort of thing you can imagine the late, great John Peel having in session” Nightshift
The Lost Art
Guitarists Gordo Francis & Greg Hooper formed The Lost Art in June 2012 and quickly established a reputation as a fascinating live act, dazzling audiences with their skilful fretwork, subtle vocal blend and finely nuanced duo dynamic. Through their humble yet committed approach to collaboration the duo enjoy an enriched musical fusion where anything is possible, and audiences enjoy being kept on the edge of their seats! Influences come from as far afield as Simon & Garfunkel, Nick Drake, Messaien and Led Zep, and the pair certainly have a way with an unexpected arrangement, as their celebrated Radiohead cover proves.
