SKINNY GIRL DIET FOR INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK TONIGHT

As part of Independent Venue Week we have the brilliant Skinny Girl Diet TONIGHT!

If music could kill, Skinny Girl Diet would have you on the floor begging for mercy. The legendary Neneh Cherry recently hailed them as “the future” on her guest BBC 6 Music show and everyone from XFM’s Jon Kennedy, BBC Radio 6’s Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank and Amazing Radio have put them on the airwaves loud and clear. Without any help these three feminists have graced the cover of Beat, been featured in Dazed and Confused, Vice and The Guardian.
They have become known for bringing an updated approach to the feminist art punk ideals associated with the Riot Grrrl Movement of the 90s. They have been vocal about addressing the lack of female musicians that still exists in today’s music industry, as well as other issues of equality under a contemporary feminist context.

Local support:
jesuscarfish + Jitterz & Meri Everitt

Tickets available on the door.
7.30pm doors.

THE LIBERTINE’S JOHN HASSALL& THE APRIL RAINERS IN MARCH!

The Soundhouse presents John Hassall & The April Rainers on Thursday 9th March!

John Hassall (The Libertines) and his new band The April Rainers are the sound of classic summery pop songs mixed with endearing harmonies, jangly guitars and rootsy bass and drum arrangements. The ‘Rainers sound very pastoral and English. Their debut album Wheels to Idyl out in Marchl is about a psychedelic train journey into the country and was produced by Kalle Guatafsson (The Sountrack of Our Lives) and recorded at his “analogue haven” Svenske Grammofon Studion in Gothenburg, Sweden.

John Hassall says of Wheels to Idyll: “Much of the album is about travelling to the country to see my Granny as a child. It might not be a very rock’n’roll subject matter, but I reckon you can still make good pop songs out of it. ‘Intercity 125´ is about the train journey there, ‘Sun in the Afternoon’ is about her and her house, and ‘The Last Scene of Summer’ at the end of the album is about the melancholy train journey back home to London. The songs in the middle are like the adventures and experiences that happen in this Idyll. For example ´Ladybird… Waiting´ is about being a child and having a silent conversation with a ladybird in her garden ‘you’ll find that I am willing and I’m able, so go ahead and fly up on the table. Or take a trip ‘cross my finger tip, the love I give is honest and stable’. ´My Two Wheels´ is about a crazy bike ride at night time in the summer. ‘My limbs are getting heavy but my heart beats like a kite, cycling through the summer city night’ I wrote that one with my poet friend Steev Burgess.”

NEW SHOW – TIP FOR 2017 JOE FOX HERE IN MARCH!

The Soundhouse presents the incredible Joe Fox on Thursday 16th March!

Joe Fox never set out to be famous. He was just writing songs because he wanted to — or even, because he needed to. “I’ve found a lot of people I’ve met really love being noticed,” he observes. “A lot more people do their jobs for others’ recognition than I thought. I don’t really. I’ve just always always made music because I enjoy it.” It’s this dedication to craft and a total disregard for trends that makes Fox’s voice unique in the landscape of modern music. A student of every great songwriter from the Beatles to Bob Marley, he brings a classic structure to the mind’s eye of a listless and disenfranchised child of the inner city.

Fox got his break when he met A$AP Rocky busking on the streets of London at 4am, wowed him with a little sing-song, and subsequently ended up being all over Rocky’s 2015 ‘At.Long.Last.A$AP’.

His first EP ‘Acoustic Alley Sessions’ showcased more of his stunning vocals alongside minimal production.

Now, he’s signed to Island and, following October’s Acoustic Alley Sessions debut EP and an extensive UK tour, is set to properly launch his solo career in 2017. It’s probably safe to say his busking days are over.
