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.

The Soundhouse Leicester welcomes back one of the country’s finest singer songwriters John Bramwell to the venue on Friday 21st October!

I Am Kloot’s singer songwriter John Bramwell, returns to the stage this autumn 2016, armed with his first set of brand new songs since the bands UK top ten album ‘Let It All In’ in 2014.

During 2014 the Mercury prize nominated songwriter (Robbed) sporadically turned up at venues in “Any town, anywhere” throughout the UK. Playing a different set every night, trying out stripped down versions of his 100 or so previously released songs. After fifty or so performances of varying length, spontaneity and cohesiveness and armed with a new found confidence in his storytelling abilities, he returned to his new home in Crewe and put the finishing touches to his studio/garage and set about recording new songs for his debut solo single ‘Times Arrow’.

With these recordings ready for release to coincide with the tour and a bag of classic songs and great stories, John Bramwell brings poetry, great guitar playing, a beautiful, unique voice and a little chaos to a town to The Soundhouse once more.

“Arguably the UK’s finest export” – THE NEW YORKER

“Great songs, great voice. The real thing” – TIME OUT

“Utterly compelling, quite beautiful and frequently hilarious” – THE GUARDIAN

Support from Dave Fidler.
