THE PSYCH ROCK N’ROLL OF MICHAEL RAULT TONIGHT!

We have the brilliant psych rock n’roll talent, Michael Rault at The Soundhouse Leicester tonight!

Michael Rault is a Toronto based singer, guitarist and songwriter fronting his own eponymously named band. A gifted multi-instrumentalist and arranger, his hooky blend of pop rock refracts an evolution of guitar based music through the ages. An era-defying mischievousness defines his synthesis of jukebox R’n’B, and acid psych as refracted through the experience of an adolescence spent idolizing the clever craftsmanship of the Beatles and the wiggy New Orleans textures of Dr. John in equal measure.

After releasing a number self produced efforts on a handful of Canadian independents, Rault caught the attention of Burger Records in 2014.
‘Still Not Sad’ b/w ‘Nothing Means Nothing’ marked his debut cassingle on the label and earned rave reviews from publications like Spin, Stereogum & NME. Produced in collaboration with members of Fucked Up and Slim Twig (the DFA recording artist who’s band Michael also performs in), yet written and performed entirely solo – ‘Still Not Sad’ / ‘Nothing Means Nothing’ further rarefied Rault’s economic and modernized take on classic rock tropes.

Having found a complimentary niche in the fuzzy, garage-centric Burger Records underground, Michael is poised to finally unleash his ‘Living Daylight’ LP, recorded late 2012 into early 2013.

As a recent transplant from his native Edmonton, the album is a melodically adventurous take on a classic theme – leaving home to make your way in the big city. Produced and recorded in collaboration with Renny Wilson (Mint Records), ‘Living Daylight’ is a dynamic fusion of the past and future. An inclination for early Rock N’ Roll is perverted by a heady production sensibility akin to the warped contemporary psych of Tame Impala. As a document of oddball DIY songwriting ‘Living Daylight’ (which was released April 7th 2015) fits nicely in the lineage of records created by Ex-Edmontonian contemporaries like Mac Demarco or Sean Nicholas Savage. Expect a busy year in 2015 for this dynamic instrumentalist and performer.

INDIE POP LEGENDS THE PRIMITIVES TONIGHT!

Strangling Vinyl Promotions presents iconic British indie pop band The Primitives tonight!

Fronted by indiepop blonde bombshell Tracy Tracy, The Primitives emerged from the independent scene of the mid-80s that spawned The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, The Wedding Present and Primal Scream. Their sound distilled the shimmering guitar jangle of the Byrds, the buzzsaw style of The Ramones and 60′s girl group melodies into two and a half minute pop gems. Regular session guests on John Peel’s radio show, with many an appearance in his Festive Fifty, their career was boosted / hindered when Morrissey named them as one of his favourite bands.

A widely acclaimed first album, Lovely, made them the UK’s indie darlings, while the huge success of the single ‘Crash‘ saw them cross over to a mass audience. Further chart success followed, along with two more studio albums, Pure and Galore, plus extensive tours of Europe and the US, before the band called it a day in 1992. Guitarist Paul Court and drummer Tig Williams continued to work together on various musical projects throughout most of 1990s, while Tracy contributed vocals to Band of Holy Joy amongst others, and also recorded with several outfits working in the dance music field. In 2008, Mojo Magazine voted the Primitives’ second single “Really Stupid” one of the Top 40 UK indie singles of all time.

The band were reunited in 2009 by the untimely passing of their original bass player Steve Dullaghan, reforming to play a show in his memory later that year in their home town of Coventry; their first show together for 17 years. Bolstered by its success they went on to tour the UK in April 2010, receiving a rapturous response, followed by a headline slot at the Indietracks festival and shows in the US and Europe. In 2011, the band released Never Kill A Secret EP through Fortuna Pop!. This marked the bands first new material for 20 years.

2012 saw the release of the band’s latest album Echoes and Rhymes through Elefant Records, which showcases obscure girl fronted songs from the 60s and 70s, reworked in the Primitives own style.
