TWO BIG SUMMER SHOWS THIS WEEK WITH DAMO SUZUKI & LIAM BAILEY!

DAMO SUZUKI
The Soundhouse & Wake up promotions are delighted to present this never-to-be-repeated show with the legendary Damo Suzuki on Thursday 3rd August!

Damo will perform with a specially formed band of local ‘sound carriers’ as he likes to refer to them for what will be a one-off performance. Local sound carriers will be Echolocation & guests.

Damo Suzuki, the Japanese musician, is best known as the former singer of the legendary German krautrock band CAN. He fronted the band during their highly productive period between 1970-73, when CAN delivered albums such as Tago Mago, Future Days and Ego Bamyasi.
CAN are one of the fore-fathers of krautrock and it’s a genre of music that continues to inspire so many of todays artists.

This will be a unique and never to be repeated event

LIAM BAILEY
The phenomenal voice and talent of Liam Bailey is at the venue on Friday 4th August!

Walking in the blues-soaked, jam-hardened, stage-aged footsteps of the real soul greats, Liam Bailey carries all the authenticity of a true original. An intense, deeply engaging and enigmatic solo artist, Liam has found a wide audience through major collaborations such as 2011’s top 5 Blind Faith alongside Chase and Status and 2013’s summer smash Soon Come with Shy FX, well supported by David Rodigan, Zane Lowe and Annie Mac.

A genuine and uncompromising talent, he released his first two EPs on Amy Winehouse’s Lioness Records, one of only a few artists given a home by the indisputable queen of 21st century UK soul. Although his subsequent relationship with Polydor was short-lived, which included some time working with Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse, Fugees, Fergie, Estelle), Liam has had no problem in finding labels willing to release various impeccable singles, whilst collaborating with artists as diverse as Delilah and DJ Fresh. He eventually released his masterful and fully formed debut album Definitely Now on Flying Buddha/Sony.

In between touring with Chase & Status, Liam has been gaining momentum as a solo artist, including a jaw-droppingly beautiful performance on Jools Holland in September 2015. Now he is shaping up for what could be his most significant year yet, with tantalising studio sessions with Gorillaz and new material out.

“Like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, Bailey sounds old before his time”

NEW SHOW – THIS IS THE KIT IN OCTOBER

This Is The Kit, the nom de plume of Kate Stables, has been in existence since the 00s, when Kate moved to Bristol and started playing and collaborating with local musicians. It was here where her debut album Krulle Bol took shape, recorded and produced by PJ Harvey’s long-standing musical collaborator John Parish. Her second album, 2010’s Wriggle Out The Restless was made in France alongside members of Francois and the Atlas Mountains before final touches from TITK’s extended musical family were added in Bristol, Belgium and several points in between.
“The aim is to have fun playing with people whose work I really like,” says Kate in her simple and direct fashion. “The more you exchange and share with people the better things get and the more you learn.” This is the Kit has opened for artists such as The National, Jose Gonzales, and Iron & Wine and was selected by Sharon Van Etten as her “Favourite New Artist” in an interview with Pitchfork.
This is the Kits’ 2015 album Bashed Out, was produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner and released on his Brassland label. Bashed Out features performances from Aaron, his brother Bryce Dessner, Benjamin Lanz (Beirut), Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The Gloaming) and Matt Barrick (The Walkmen) alongside her regular cast of collaborators. On its release, Bashed Out received critical acclaim, and was quickly seen as a breakthrough record. Packed out performances followed, including a headline show at the Scala, and the album was picked as Guy Garvey’s Album of The Year for 2015 on BBC 6 Music.

Don’t miss them on Friday 6th October! Tickets via SeeTickets.

THE CLASS OF ’97 TONIGHT – OK COMPUTER & BITTERSWEET SYMPHONY SPECIAL

20 years ago, the world was a very different place. Clinton and Blair came into office. Princess Diana died. We cloned a sheep!
It was a time of change, upheaval and innovation, and 1997’s music certainly reflected that. Game-changing dance records, legacy-cementing classics, endless innovation and the mainstream end of Britpop were the flavour of the year, and in 2017 some of the most revered albums will turn 20 years old.
Time to feel old and join us to celebrate a monumental year of music!

We bring the Class of ’97 with a special night dedicated to the release of seminal album Radiohead’s OK Computer & The Verve’s huge single Bitter Sweet Symphony on 16th June 1997.

Expect to hear 97 classics from Oasis, The Charlatans, Mansun, Spirtualized, Daft Punk, Blur, Finlay Quaye, Notorious BIG, Chemical Brothers, Supergrass, Foo Fighters, Wu Tang Clan, The Prodigy, Primal Scream, Cornershop and more.
