Over the last 13 years the ‘one man filth machine’ (Bizarre Mag) has assembled a back catalogue to rival any of his musical peers including over 10 albums of obscenely catchy songs, 30-odd music videos and an acclaimed original musical chronicling the fake kidnapping of Yorkshire schoolgirl Shannon Matthews.

We welcome Swiss psych-pop duo Klaus Johann Grobe to The Soundhouse in support of their critcally acclaimed new LP ‘Spagat der Liebe’ tonight!
Driven by an organic yet metronomic beat aligned with synth, chant-like vocals and a monstrous funky bass, this is seriously bum-waggling electro-freak goodness. The music does seem to aim towards a certain kind of hypnosis, particulary as the sleeping pill echo-heavy vocals cycle over the
locked grooves the pair throw down.
“KLAUS JOHANN GROBE crafts organically-created kosmische grooves that put a fresh spin on the groundbreaking sounds that came out of West Germany in the 1970s, an era that saw a canon of seminal releases by Can, Cluster and Faust amongst others.” The Quietus
“Swiss duo, Klaus Johann Grobe, play a kind of danceable Krautrock informed by early ’80’s New York punk funk pioneers such as ESG……” Shindig Magazine

Rising stars Broken Witt Rebels join us this Friday 29th July, don’t miss it!
In the past few weeks, the buzz around self-released, Birmingham blues rock band Broken Witt Rebels has reached a deafening roar. So much so that the band have rushed out new single GUNS to capitalize on fan driven interest.
It all started when a live version of previous single LOW was uploaded to their Facebook page, within 4 days the video had amassed an impressive 130,000 views. This caught the attention of viral content geniuses Buzzfeed, who invited the band into their offices to play a live streamed gig for their 1.3m strong Facebook group, part of their Music Breaks Series. Just when it seemed like it couldn’t get any better, the GUNS video was elevated to the front page of YouTube. At the time of writing, the video has amassed over 420,000 views in less than one day.
BWR’s bluesy southern tinged swagger has drawn favourable comparisons with Kings of Leon, Alabama Shakes and The Black Keys, while their legendary live shows frequently result in stage invasions with fans rushing the stage in response to the band’s famous shoes off war cry!
Broken Witt Rebels have just made guitar bands exciting again.
Local support from The Jav’lins + The Dead Shoot + Tom McCartney.
