The Filthy Tongues + Special Guests + Katherine Aly


Dublin Castle

94 Parkway NW1 7AN London

Gig Description

The Filthy Tongues-Dirty post punk and grinding poetic folk rock full of noirish but playful potency. A Scottish band who have been around since the ’80s  featuring ex members of Goodbye Mr McKenzie, you’d maybe compare this to Nick Cave on first listen but actually have far more in common with Crime And The City Solution and The Triffids if you must go all Antipodean with your indie noir references. Guaranteed though, is that this is truly great stuff,  with nuances of Iggy, Johnny Cash, Wire….but always utterly Filthy Tongues in realization, with the assured Boheme of Martin Metcalfe at the fore, Scots accent thankfully intact, as tales of woe and wonder are woven.  “These songs wrap themselves around you like a warm blanket and effortlessly soothe your soul.” Katherine Aly has been involved with many musical projects in Scotland’s capital, including Hidden Door Festival, various art projects and as the lead singer of shoegaze band, Lilac Melt. She has collaborated with many UK-based musicians/bands, including Baby Taylah, Glassmasterer, False Bliss, Midi Paul and Sheltering Waves. Her melody-driven music is a multi-genre experimentation with ethereal, lyrical elements and dreamy ambience. Superb.  This show is the launch of her single ‘The Skin I’m Made Of’.
