Legendary Pink Fairies Play To Play The Marrs Bar, Worcester 3/10/14

Pink-Fairies

From the Westway to the Worcester and and further beyond to Tyneside, the jungle drums have been beating for some time of late. But the suspense is finally over and speculation can stop. Yes, it’s true ?those legendary Pink Fairies of Ladbroke Grove are reforming.

Pink Fairies were an English rock band active in the London (Ladbroke Grove) underground and psychedelic scene of the early 1970s. They promoted free music, drug taking and anarchy and often performed impromptu gigs and other agitprop stunts, such as playing for free outside the gates at the Bath and Isle of Wight pop festivals in 1970, as well as appearing at Phun City, the second Glastonbury and many other free festivals including Windsor and Trentishoe.

In 2011, singer Mick Farren and guiatrist Andy Colquhoun returned to the UK from Los Angeles after nearly 20 years exile. They teamed up with the Pink Fairies (and Deviants) rhythm section of Hunter and Sanderson – along with 2nd guitarist Tim Rundall and percussionist Jaki Windmill for a number of appearances.

 

The Marr’s Bar, Worcester on Friday 3rd October (doors 7pm, tickets £17.50+)

Olde Worlde is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist, Sohhei Numata. Born in Machida, Tokyo, Olde Worlde releases his brand new album The Blue Musk-Oxen in the UK on September 1st. Recorded, produced and mixed by Brad Wood (The Smashing Pumpkins, Ben Lee, Sunny Day Real Estate, Tortoise) it features current single Stuck In Hibernation – which is picking up airplay across BBC 6 Music, including spins at Lauren Laverne. On The Blue Musk-Oxen, Numata plays guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, piano, keyboard and moog.

As a precocious teenager, fixated on all kinds of musical styles from a very early age, it wasn’t long before he made himself a regular on the city’s busking circuit, absorbing the styles and skills of the city’s broad range of live talent. With much of the local music being sung in Japanese though, Namata looked to learn English from as many sources as he could, learning in person from J-Punk bands he would see live, but eventually settling on American Forces Radio as the medium to best be exposed to his adopted tongue.

Getting to grips with many a 90s US Indie Rock and Power Pop band through his radio, the traits of these come to the fore on The Blue Musk-Oxen. From former single Your Bird’s delicate lilt and simple melody, through to Stuck In Hibernation’s more fractured guitars and buoyant pace, The Blue Musk-Oxen is made a bright, sun-kissed, collection thanks to Brad Wood’s production.

HEART IN HAND
reveal new album details

Melodic Hardcore Kings HEART IN HAND have revealed that their brand new album, entitled “A Beautiful White”, will be released November 3rd on SOAR/Century Media Records in Europe.

Having formed in late 2008, HEART IN HAND undoubtedly have their own signature brand of Melodic Hardcore, and the world is starting to notice. Combining ferocious and dynamic heaviness with majestically layered soundscapes to startling effect. Touring with artists such as Miss May I, Bleed From Within, Heart Of A Coward, Comeback Kid, Hacktivist, Texas In July, For The Fallen Dreams, Dead Swans, Carpathian and Gallows to name a few.

Now HEART IN HAND return with their most accomplished and dynamic record to date – “A Beautiful White”. Choosing this time to self-produce, the band also enlisted the reputable ears of Will Putney at Machine Shop Studios (Thy Art Is Murder, Northlane), USA for mixing duties.

“A Beautiful White” track-listing:
01 Mae
02 A Beautiful White
03 Colours And Chemicals
04 Crying Shame
05 …
06 Poison Pen Letters
07 Last Night
08 Regain.Recover. Reprise
09 New Years Eve
10 My Heart Belongs In Denmark
11 Never Again
12 Jasmine

Here’s what the band had to say about the new album: “A Beautiful White is an album about fresh starts and overcoming problems that face you in life. Coming out of the darkness into the light and not letting bad things in life hold you back.This record has more diversity than our previous releases; we tried different things musically as well as vocally. There’s a guest spot which perfectly complements the song it’s featured on and the overall sound is a much more accomplished effort!”

HEART IN HAND will be on tour throughout the UK & Europe with The Amity Affliction in support of “A Beautiful White”, which will be released on November 3rd.

XANDER DUELL
 
‘EARTH ON ITS AXIS’
WATCH VIDEO HERE
ALBUM PRODUCED BY ANDREW WYATT OF MIIKE SNOW AND DAMON McMAHON OF AMEN DUNES OUT LATER THIS YEAR
Following the release of his debut long-player on Mexican Summer in 2011, New York City artist Xander Duell returns with new album ‘Wade Laiste’ on Swedish art collective INGRID label later this year.
For his follow-up full-length Wade Laiste, Xander was able to bring together the unlikely musical pairing of producers Andrew Wyatt of  Miike Snow, and Damon McMahon, creator of Amen Dunes.
The album was recorded in Sear Sound, one of New York City’s most renowned and historic recording studios, with a hyper-real rhythm section composed of David Bowie’s drummer (Sterling Campbell) and Maxwell’s bassist (Hod David), as well as musical accompaniment by producers Andrew Wyatt and Damon McMahon.
The first single to be taken off the album is ‘Earth On Its Axis’, watch the video here:

“Then in a drunken haze, stabbed her in the parking lot of a TGI Friday’s,” sings Xander on this track. It’s David Lynch blues & pill-head 2014 Avant-soul born from some of the deepest and most unusually combined musicianship on any record to come out of New York City for quite some time.
When a teenager, Xander Duell started the band Inouk with his brother. He later joined Ambulance LTD, where he co-wrote songs.
His solo debut, Experimental Tape No.2, Vol.1 was a collection of recordings done in a Chelsea apartment on Garage Band over the course of two years, late late at night and in the early morning. It was rich and involved pop song craft, mixed with uncompromising drug-damaged confession and discordance in songs that sometimes clocked in under a minute. The songs were fragmented paeans to regret, hallucination, hatred, and love, insanely and indiscriminately pieced together with anything he could get his hands on: cheesy MIDI piano, synth patches, drum machine wanderings, nylon string guitar, and lush three and four-part harmony.
Perhaps it was a bit too much for most people to wrap their heads around at the time, but where Experimental Tape No.2, Vol.1 was raw and inward bedroom-pop, new album Wade Laiste is slick and extroverted future soul.

OVER 18s ONLY

Friday 12th September Jägermeister is proud to announce its fourthJägermeister Music UK Tour in December 2014, once again providing a huge line up for a small ticket price. Last year’s tour saw the mighty GHOST, GOJIRA and THE DEFILED play to over 15,921 music fans as they packed out venues up and down the country. This year’s tour is set to repeat the success of the 2013 run, with a four-date tour headlined by Punk Rock legends ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES.

When five young friends from some of the mightiest bands on Fat Wreck Chords got together in the magical era of the 90’s and decided to bring together their collective wit to re-imagine pop songs as instant punk rock classics, they became the best cover band in the world. Featuring Spike Slawson on vocals, NOFX’s Fat Mike on bass, Lagwagon’s Joey Cape on rhythm guitar, current Foo Fighters member Chris Shiflett on lead guitar, and Lagwagon’s Dave Raun on drums, ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES are a supergroup. THE GIMMES will be hitting Jägermeister Music Tour UK dates in support of their latest album “Are We Not Men? We Are Diva!”,released earlier this year and are inviting you to mosh your way through Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love you’ and Paula Abdul’s classic ‘Straight Up’ amongst many more.

East London-based reggae-dub four-piece THE SKINTS will co-headline this year’s event, bringing an infectious fusion of Jamaican styles to the fore with their pop hooks, grimey raps, filthy basslines and punk rock ethic, creating the perfect mix to get the party crowd on their feet. Following the release of their “Short Change” EP earlier this year, the genre-defying outfit supported byJägermeister on their band roster, has spent the summer recording their highly anticipated third album with renowned producer and close friend, Prince Fatty. Well-versed in setting festival scenes and stages alight, their inimitable live performances are not to be missed.
THE SKINTS said: “We’re really excited to be on the Jägermeister tour, playing with Me First and the Gimme Gimmes is very humbling for us. The band and crew are all great people and we can’t wait to play some UK venues for the first time this year due to being in Europe and the studio. A punky reggae party indeed.”

Two support acts will be announced in the coming weeks to join the dates, which are as follows:

December 18th – Liverpool O2 Academy
December 19th – Leicester O2 Academy
December 20th- Leeds O2 Academy
December 21st – London, O2 Academy Brixton

At an incredible one off price of just £10.00 per person (subject to booking fees) – thanks to Jägermeister subsidising admission – tickets for the2014 Jägermeister UK Music Tour are likely to sell out very quickly.
