Gig Description

1919 – This band were an early contributor to what became the Goth genre and had chart success with the singles “Caged”, “Repulsion” and “Cry Wolf”” as well as the 1984 LP “Machine”, and recorded two Peel Sessions. In 2014, founding guitarist Mark Tighe realigned the band, including original drummer Mick Reed. Two European tours and a host of festival appearances later, 1919 signed a deal with Westworld Recordings in 2016 to release a new album, “Bloodline”, 35 years after their first. Sadly in January 2017 Tighe lost a short battle with cancer, leaving a chasm at the heart of the band. Having insisted the others carry on in his absence though, Mick, Rio, and Karl now had to do justice to the album, and to the memory of their fallen comrade. Bloodline was released to critical acclaim in 2017, with Vive le Rock’s Pete Woods writing “Good goths come to those that wait” in an 8/10 review. Louderthanwar said “‘Bloodline’ will bewitch you“, and Sonic Seducer calling its “nightmarish-hypnotic gloom” a “fitting tribute” to Tighe’s legacy. In April the band confirmed that Sam Evans would be their new full-time guitarist, and began touring the new album once again to rave reviews. And it’s great to have them with us this evening. Damn Vandals- Two bruvs rock it upfront with guitars and vox and a sheeet hot riddim section propels the razzle dazzle angular rocknroll’s a twangsome garage swamp blues rock… Zep meets Pixies meets Bunnymen, with a Mark Lanegan aspect to the vocals… 2 great albums under their belts already and beloved of BBC 6Music’s Sean Keaveney. Deviant Heart- Although sadly Morgellons are no more bass mangler supreme Mark Geraghty can now be found in Deviant Hart alongside the powerfully fiery punk femme vocal presence of Lizzi Lastic, one Albert Awful on guitar and drummer Gianluca. A great clattering but tune laden punk rock noise with sass aplenty. Kajik Vault – Moody post punk bohemians with a cool Subway Sect meets Tindersticks feel via some gritty Nick Cave/Crime And The City Solution style artful angst.
